I have three question. I am 33 years old. I had lattice degeneration around the entire perimeter of both eyes. Moreover, on my right eye I had retinal tear but without symptoms as are blurred vision, flashing lights, floaters or curtain.
In October 2019, I had right eye surgery – PHACO + IOL + 23G PPV + LFK + SF6 + Cryotherapy
In December 2019 I had left eye surgery – PHACO + IOL + 23G PPV + LFK + SF6 + Cryotherapy
Let me know if you need details.
So, I have 5 months after the last eye surgery. My question is what I can and can't do now. Specifically, in sports. I know, I can't play volleyball, football, I can't do contact sports and so on. For me it is OK.
I just want to do cycling. Before the operation I rode a bike 100 km in one day, I rode in the mountains and so on. I love to ride a bike. The doctor said I could ride a bike, but you can't ride dangerous downhill, stairs and so on. I didn't ride it even before the operation, so for me this is ok.
On the other hand, I can't even have a vibration. And it is not possible to ride a bike without roughness. Somewhere there is a stone, somewhere a branch, a root ... (1) And my question is what now? Is this dangerous for me? The doctor told me that when I see something, I had to lift my ass off the saddle. But this is quite difficult.
(2) The second question concerns the pressure in the eye. Can I ride the hills? Because there you must make a great effort. Is the danger to my retina?
(3) Before the operation, I saw circular flashes in my left eye in the dark when my eye looked sharply to the left or right. But after the vitrectomy I have it too. It means that I have it after five months. How is this possible when I have a new vitreous? Is there a risk of retinal detachment even if I have a new vitreous?
Thank you very much for your answer.
