eye sight - retinal tears/laser treatment

May sound a strange title, but I wonder if anyone has any experience of the above. I found that I had a tear in the retina of one eye about 10 weeks ago (loads of floaters and flashes) and had it lasered. I've gradually returned to normal activities although I was told to take it a bit easy for a while. I had a check last week and everything was OK although I do still have flashes (but not of inspiration!). I asked about activities and the consultant thought that I shouldn't compete in the race car until the flashes stopped. In previous checks, other consultants thought it ok to compete, however. I haven't done so, but the first event is approaching.
I wondered if any other hillclimbers/sprinters have experienced similar? My actual eyesight is fine, and driving on the road has been fine also.
The problem is that I haven't found an opthamologist who has experience of our sport!
Any ideas?

Ring the MSA and ask for the medical office. They are very helpful and they will guide you accordingly. Remember that if your health changes at anytime you have to inform the MSA. In my case i had a good experience with the MSA. Please don't compete without contacting them first. Luke
