Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
The use of laser of surgery to improve the circulation of the diabetic eye and make abnormal blood vessels disappear is a very sight saving treatment for the diabetic patient.

I am sure that your treating doctor has specific instructions for you in regard to the level of permitted activity, whether you should be avoiding any medications which can thin your blood and affect clotting, etc. Laser surgery, performed in the office, does not require any incisions so that avoiding water and other similar anti-infection precautions are generally not relevant.

Please, please contact your treating doctor to find out the precautions which are being recommended in your individual situation.
