I have had both eyes operated last april and so far no retinal bleeding.

I had laser treatment for Retinopathy on my left eye about 25 years ago. There was and still a slight bit of peripheral(sp) damage.

I had cataracts removed in 2006. No problems otherwise. I just saw my Ophtho last week with Good results. Everything is stable. My eye pressure is l/15 and r/16.
