I've only trained in lunarglide for the past few years and have run in the Lunarglide 1,2 and 3. I thought the Lunarglide 3 was too structured at first, but also grew to like them best eventually. Looking forward to trying the Lunarglide 4 and would love to hear from anybody who had run in them. At the moment, though, I will stick to discounted Lunarglide 3!
Many thanks for your feedback. I did call the clinic earlier and spoke to the consultant's secretary. She made an enquiry and came back on the phone to say that it was fine to run. Now I'm wondering who she spoke to! Probably the consultant but can't be sure. I do feel a bit anxious about resuming running so soon - because I have seen advice on other forums about not running until the eye is checked again. But then again the clinic should know - and as you both pointed out your consultants did not think the problem was caused by running.
Thanks for your quick reply and advice. You are right, of course, about not risking my eyesight for the sake of a couple of weeks of running. Will try and find out from the consultant what he thinks about the running side of things. Thanks again - and happy running.
Hoping some runners out there can advise me based on their own experiences. I had a number of new floaters in one eye - including a large circular transparent 'watermark'. Had it checked it out at eye clinic and they said nothing to worry about. Then saw some kind of inky traces in the eye one night. Had test at optician - again all fine. Then went back for the follow up at clinic and they said I had a small tear in the retina (odd this wasn't picked up previously?). Had laser coagulation treatment straight away and am due back in two weeks time to make sure it doesn't need any more lasering.
Stupidly didn't ask about running (all a bit shocked I think). Has anybody had this laser 'spot welding' for a tear on the retina? How long should I leave off running? Does the repair need time to take effect? Were you advised you could start running again or told that it might not be a good idea in the future?
Naturally I feel apprehensive that the consultant might tell me that running could have caused the tear or might result in future tears - with the risk of a detachment.
