Common Questions and Answers about Best laser surgery uk


Avatar m tn But there seems to be a lot of talk about laser eye surgery these days. Some say it's the best thing ever and others don't really want to recommend it. Quite frankly I'm really interested in finally ditching glasses after all those years of using them. I started to wear them when I was 9 (I'm 25 now) after being diagnosed with myopia. My glasses are -3/-4 for my left and right eye respectively.
Avatar f tn This has stifled development of new techniques for surgery and research for eye disease. The best solution in the USA would be for Medicare and insurance companies to allow patients to pay extra for these advanced techniques. They already do that in the case of people opting for toric and accommodating/refracting IOLs. If I were having cataract surgery i would pay $1000 dollars extra per eye to have an experiences surgeon use the femtosecond laser.
Avatar n tn Dear Dr. I realize that my question may be inappropriate and best answered by my surgeon...but here goes anyway. Since aquiring my medical records, I noticed my linear cup disc ratio is .593 (change of .054 from base one year prior that} on my HRT 11 report less than one year prior to my surgery (7 on SLE exam at that time). It was given as .85 one day prior to my surgery one which I suffered snuff out, through SLE exam.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar n tn Hello, I am new to this community and I have may post-surgery issues and would love to solicit the advice of members of this community, particulary JodieJ, as I have been very impressed with your knowledge, advice, and very generous giving of time to help others in this eye care community. Here's my history - I have always been extremely myopic (about -12) in boths eyes and recently sustained a detachment in my left eye as a part of the PVD event. I'm a 50 year old female.
Avatar n tn I'm assuming you have has cornea laser surgery (intracorneal lasik or surface lasik (PRK) This does not make the cataract surgery more difficult only makes the calculations of what IOL to put in your eye more difficult with a wider standard deviation than regular corneas that have not had surgery. This is more important with multifocal/accommodating IOLs than monofocal IOLs. There is no best IOL and no choice that is best for everyone.
Avatar f tn My search for dealing with nighttime light issues and dry eyes have lead me to laser surgery forums and was surprised to find that these problems weretwo of the commonest concerns after surgery. This does make me believe that any surgery to the eye is a major disturbance to all the parts of this intricate organ and they heal at their own speed.On the whole, my experience shows there is slow improvement as time goes by reduction in glare and sensitivity.
Avatar n tn Yes - I'm curious what type of surgery you had too. I heard that having laser surgery is a lot easier to recover from than regular surgery. My main concern in doing that is because the gastro doctor said in my case it would be considered cosmetic surgery at this point (doctor code for "not covered by insurance", how much does surgery like that cost if you don't mind me asking.
Avatar n tn I had spinal fusion on my L5 5 weeks ago, and i am now hurting now more then i ever did before surgery. My Doc said he had the surgery and was back to work in 2 weeks. At 2weeks for me i was hurting so bad i thought i had messed up my fusion. So i went to see my my doc and had an xray and was told it was fine. He gave me a RX and said it was my last one. So i have had nothing for pain since 3 weeks after surgery.
Avatar f tn I'm hoping for this rather than another tear. And if I was unfortunate to get another tear could it be treated by laser rather than eye surgery again?
Avatar m tn Apparently the astigmatism I had has been corrected (toric lens) but I am now slightly shortsighted (I had hoped for good vision overall). It has been suggested I could have laser surgery to correct this. My main worry is that I have what I feel is quite bad flaring from car headlights at night and also lots of circles around the lights, presume this is haloing. I see you talk about haloing and I am wondering if this has diminished/improved for you as time passes after the surgery.
Avatar f tn It's now 8 weeks after the op , the lens misted over so needed to have a YAG laser procedure to demist the new implanted lens. Owning to the biometry prior to surgery my surgeon said the best solution was a mono focal lens to correct my failing distance vision. Problem is now the inbalance between my left and right ( whilst wearing my -7 contact lens) is awful - light headedness and I am unable to see close or mid vision without glasses.
Avatar n tn His team has also had a lot of success with endoscopic and laser surgery. You can send all of your stuff to him for evaluation before having to make the trip. I've seen some spectacular cases he's operated on. One guy had no discs in his neck, just one long rod! You only have one neck and that connects to your back which makes up your whole spine..... make the right decision when it comes to who you let cut it open. Another great site is GPN, Global Patient Network.
Avatar f tn I went through a sinus surgery about 3 month back. I had bits of my inner flesh trimmed of with laser to help me breath better. However after 4 weeks or so. I too began to experience foul smell coming out of my nose. Sometimes even strong enough for people on train to smell it. It was really bad experience. My doctor asked me to flush my nose with salt water. Out of curiosity, I actually took a flash light and looked into my nostril.
Avatar n tn 5 months - and therapy and dynasplinting to improve flexion and extension have not resulted in much improvement. Have not had any surgery yet, but am seeing one of the best on east coast who thinks he can get me to 10 degrees which is better than the 45 degrees its bent now.
Avatar f tn If you are serious about having Laser Eye Surgery and you live in the UK you no doubt will have spent hours of time online looking at the pristine clinic web sites and their glossy brochures trying to make up your mind who to entrust with your sight. One of the best 'Independent' web sites around has to be If you search on Google (either .com or ) under Laser Eye Treatment you cannot fail to find this web site up in the top 5 ranked web sites...
Avatar f tn I was just reading a new article regarding mutlifocal lenses and they addressed the issue of laser cataract surgery and one commented on the issue of tearing the capsule. I don't know what other surgeons think regarding laser surgery for your type of cataract, but this surgeon's comment might seem to argue against it so your post came to mind: http://www.reviewofophthalmology.
Avatar f tn I am 3 months post op, after having to have surgery for a 14cm ovarian mass removed on my left ovary, which I was told was filled with fluid, they removed my left ovary and tube, I was in surgery for over 4 hours because the cyst had stuck to my bowel and bladder I went for a scan because i was struggling to eat and my abdomen was very large, and i was struggling to go to the toilet both ways and when i lay down to sleep there was that much pressue in the abdomen, and i was quite shocked to find
Avatar f tn My mom, like I posted before was seeing a round circle in her left eye after cataract removal surgery whenever she looked at a certain angle. She did visit her eye specialist and he said there isnt any such problem,that people develop such problems after cataract surgery (he didnt find any problem with her retina). its been more than 6 weeks since her phaco surgery nhas been done and that circle formation whenever she tilts her eye toward the left side isnt going.
Avatar m tn Hi, My brother had a RD surgery (Macula off) on 28th Jan with Scleral buckling procedure with a best doctor. His vision started showed symptoms of improvement after 3 weeks of the surgery but Doctor said it will take up to 2- 3 months get the vision stabilised. We understand that the RD surgery was successfull with carefully attached Retina.
422120 tn?1203210419 Yet, it never dawned on me that I would NOT see as well WITH GLASSES ON AFTER cataract surgery - then what I could see BEFORE SURGERY! Even the names... RESTORE and REZOOM were subtly implanted, (no pun intended!) in my mind. So, finally, here is my question... I wonder if anyone has ever been ALLERGIC to these, or any lens used?
Avatar n tn What costs am I looking at? I live in UK is this surgery available on the nhs?
1641321 tn?1322931299 There's a website which discusses laser surgery, and it's possible to locate a vet who performs laser surgery in any area. Apparently it is very good, and cuts bleeding risk, and recovery times: I am quite shocked to discover, after a heck of a lot of googling right now -that I cannot find any veterinary surgeon/veterinary clinic in the UK who does this surgery!! In fact I can find little MENTION of it in the UK except for human optical surgery!
Avatar m tn They cover most of my nose and right side of my face. They do not hurt but if I cut them they will bleed for ages. I have had laser surgery on them to reduce the redness but recently I have noticed some redness returning with more spots than I had originally. I am wondering if anyone has come across anything like this before and if there is any treatment?
Avatar n tn It's Friday night, lets chill. I am from the UK and had my recent treatment was done like most people here under our National Health Service which is free at the point of entry. Opposite me in my four bed ward were two women, one 30 (very good looking) and the other 69 and I swear I thought she was 59 at the most. We all left on the same day and our stay together was as good fun as you can get on a ward.
Avatar f tn I am 55 and had IOL (lens implants) 2 years ago as I was deemed unsuitable for Lasik to correct my vision - I had myopia since a child and hyperopia on getting older) After the surgery my tested vision (re my prescription) was excellent - 20/20 but it within a few days I had night halos, light sensitivity and dry eyes which carried on for months afterwards, treated with numerous eye gels and lotions, all unsuccessfully.
Avatar m tn radius of curvature of the cornea, axial length of the eye with specific measurements of anterior chamber depth and lens diameter. Pupil diameter is normally not measured in standard cataract surgery. In lasik type surgery or with multifocal/accommodating IOLs they area. You might ask your surgeon to write a RX for alphagan P eye drops. They are for glaucoma but when used at night they prevent the pupil from dilating as wide as normal in the dark. You can also get a second opinion.
Avatar m tn I have up until now, corrected my vision through contact lens and specs having been told that laser or any surgery is out of the question mainly due to the Foster-Fuch spots. However, recently I was given hope that perhaps LASIK laser surgery might be possible. However the specialist clinic i was being referred to advised that the highest myopia they have treated was -16.00 and that was 4.00 about the safety parameter.
468411 tn?1207259284 have you tried bio-oil available from chemists, quite expensive but worth the results on body scarring.
Avatar n tn I had PVD happen a few days ago and I'm not happy about it but there are a few docs who will do laser surgery to zap the blobs. This is safe and effective unlike vitrectomy. The Doc is in VA... I am going to wait 6 weeks to make sure it doesn't do anything else. I believe I caused it by straining!
