I am a 22 year old usually healthy male. In a check up to have refractive surgery the surgeon checking me noticed I have a few retinal holes in both eyes. I had both eyes treated with laser to seal the retinal holes, and was cleared to have refractive surgery. The retina doctor kept saying that the retinas are very weak though. Two months after having the refractive surgery, I went to a checkup on my retina, and they told me I had a retinal detachment in my left eye, which I did not know because I had not seen any symptoms, meaning that the macula was still attached. He even told me I had a detachment in my right eye but that it was "localized" and that it was surrounded by scars that he had done with laser so there was no need for a scleral buckle.
I had a scleral buckle put on the eye about 3 weeks ago now, and am really disappointed that I once again have a refractive error in the eye, right after I had refractive surgery..
Before the refractive surgery I had about -5.5 diopters and 2.5 astigmatism in both eyes.
I should also mention that both my parents had retinal detachment, but at a much older age than me, without every having any operation on their eyes, and my mother has low myopia, while my father has similar prescription to mine.
Now I am living with one good eye one bad eye.
My questions are:
Will the vision in the eye with scleral buckle improve, or will it always have a refractive error from now on?
Can I go back to playing sports like basketball volleyball?
Can I go back to the gym and do pushups/pullups?
This is all very important to me as I am still just 22 years old and don't want this to ruin aspects of my life.
