If your doctor was able to laser through the blood, you likely have a mild to moderate amount of blood. It is recommended for you to sleep with your head at 45 degrees to allow the blood to settle to the bottom. This should allow you vision to clear, but with strenuous activity, there is a chance for it to swirl in your eye again. The blood will slowly reabsorb over 4-6 weeks, provided that there is not new episodes of bleeding.
