Drinking and retinopathy

I have proliferative retinopathy and I know this is a stupid question, but is it ok to have maybe 2 shots of whiskey? Me and my friends are getting together next week and was just wondering how it may affect my eyes.


Thats what I just looked at.

I haven’t heard of any relationship, except for increased incidence for chronic and heavy drinkers, but if you’re asking about a couple of shots of whisky one night a week from now, you’re obviously not in that category. I saw three retinal specialists during a phase of proliferative retinopathy and nobody mentioned not drinking or going careful with drinking. I wouldn’t worry about it. Enjoy your friends – and your whisky!
