In brief: Continue exams

With a rd in one eye, you are at a higher risk of an rd in the fellow eye.
Regular checks ups and awareness of the symptoms of a new rd is important.

In brief: Nothing specifically

Once a retina has been re-attached, there are no know interventions to prevent re-attachment.
It is important to be vigilant for symptoms of further retinal trouble, such as floaters and flashing lights. Also protective eyewear may be beneficial with contact sports.
