Can a person read normally after retinal detachment surgery?

Q: My son, who is 19 years old, had a retinal detachment. It was a peripheral detachment and surgery was done via Sceral Buckle, two weeks back. He is a college student and wants to get back to studies so that he does not have to miss a semester. Is it alright to carry full load of course work, which involves a lot of reading in the next few weeks? What is the level of reading he can do without damaging the eye?

A:The patient after retinal reattachment surgery must not wet his eyes/rub them/engage in physical contact sports like boxing/aerobics/jogging. Reading is not prohibited though the quality of vision may be somewhat poorer than the fellow eye. Carrying books is not prohibited.
