Does laser vein work

Common Questions and Answers about Does laser vein work


Avatar m tn Endovenous laser treatment closes veins about 94 out of 100 times. It doesn't work about 6 out of 100 times. If endovenous laser treatment does not close a vein, you will need a second treatment. Depending on what is available in your area, you may have choices between another laser treatment, radiofrequency treatment, or sclerotherapy. In some cases, vein surgery is recommended. For the best chance of success, be sure to have a doctor with a lot of endovenous laser experience. Regards.
Avatar n tn The metrogel seems to burn my skin. Does laser work for Rosacea? It is $1,800 for the treatment. I am 54 years old and recently had my thyroid removed due to cancer. Could my Synthroid meds be aggravating this condition. Could these blisters be facial herpes, shingles. I have had this for about 6 months. I can't get into a dermatologist until September. Help!
Avatar m tn The procedure or rather the technique of the Endovenous Laser treatment involves to insert the laser fibre into the failed or incompetent vein with the help of light energy to heat or seal the vein. The wall of the vein sticks together and forms a scar tissue. As the time passes this vein scar is absorbed by the body. The advanced treatment does not include cutting, hospital admission or any general anaesthetic.
Avatar n tn Facial spider veins can be tricky to remove because facial vein treatments are often limited to Laser Vein Removal, since Sclerotherapy and vein removal surgery can leave permanent scarring. Laser Vein Removal—Laser Vein Removal has become the preferred method of getting rid of spider veins. Facial spider veins in particular were once difficult to treat, but lasers and IPL have made it effortless. Lasers work by targeting the blood in your spider veins.
Avatar f tn I have had a central nerve eye occlusion diagnosed last month and have since been treated with a cortisone shot, followed by laser traetment. I should see the retina specialist again in two weeks. My question is; If the nerve is still blocked, will I ever be able to use air as my travel option again? At the moment I am on short term disability from work due to lifting or strenuous tasks. Does this condition bring risk to the other eye?
Avatar n tn so if doctors can get taken in im sure i can. i also have scalp psoriasis which encroaches in small patches at the edges. would laser work or would i be allowed to have laser done with that condition?. i get psoriasis because i dont leave the house and my diet can be very unhealthy. i can also do a diet that clears the psoriasis and would it be wise to have no psoriasis before trying laser again. i would really appreciate any help you can give me.
Avatar m tn If chronic cystoid macular edema persists without being controlled, does visual acuity generally continue to decline or does it usually stablize? Are there other risks of long standing CME? I've had this problem for about 5 years. Nothing has helped me.
Avatar n tn Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion (BRVO) is usually less serious than Central Retinal Vein Occlusion. If the BRVO does not involve the macula (center vision of the eye) it often requires no treatment and "goes away by itself". If the macula is involved there can be swelling that may interfere with vision. Even this may go away with time. In some cases if the condition worsens or does not respond to waiting then cautious use of laser is done.
Avatar m tn I use my computer a lot and have had astigmatism in my left eye. The prescription I got didn't work so I have been using reading glasses. My right eye has been clear. But suddenly one day a blurry spot has occurred in my right eye vision. It is a small circle which is reddish brown. It feels like looking through a smudge on a glass. Everything around it is clear but in that circle it is blurry. It is not that noticeable unless I am reading text or else looking at faces I notice it.
1408746 tn?1283678948 This Syndrome results most commonly from the compression of the left renal vein between the abdominal aorta (AA) and superior mesenteric artery (SMA), although other variants exist.[1][2] The name derives from the fact that, in the sagittal view, the SMA and AA (with some imagination) appear to be a nutcracker crushing a nut (the renal vein).
Avatar n tn I took your advice and went to the doctor today, he refered me to an optician ( who had to appraise my eye before I could be seen by an opthalmologist) The optician says that I have a Central Vein Occlusion in the retina of my left eye and that it is too late for repair. He says that I will have to wait for an appointment with the opthalmologist for another two to three weeks.

177275 tn?1511758844 How about upgrading technology for Laser Vision Correction? Well, depending on where a patient has laser vision correction there can be a menu of options. For example some clinics will have a standard option where lower order aberrations (sphere and cylinder) are corrected for a price, say $ 1,500 per eye. If the patient wants wavefront optimized treatment they may pay $ 2,150 per eye and if the patient opts for wavefront customized or guided treatment they may pay $ 2,450 per eye.
Avatar n tn Will chemical peeling or laser resurfacing stop folliculitis from reoccurring? I've have been suffering from these for almost 15 years and they make dark spots all over.
Avatar f tn Then there are two different kinds of lasers (ALT of argon laser trabeculoplasty and the newer SLT or selective laser trabeculopasty) to try is drops don't work or if the patient cannot put drops in their eyes. Lastly there are several types of traditional surgery usually called "Filtering" surgery that can be used. You should take heart. Most cases of glaucoma can be controlled one way or another.
Avatar f tn If this does not help then depending on what is available in your area, you may have choices between laser treatment, radiofrequency treatment, or sclerotherapy. In some cases, vein surgery is recommended. So, if your symptoms worsen consult your doctor for an evaluation. Regards.
Avatar n tn GAVE when it's found in the stomach is often called 'watermelon' stomach and when they're in that location, docs will go in and selectively laser ablate the 'mass' after it has been mapped and it's usually treated quite successfully. From what I've read, this condition can more often be found in those with lupus, so have you been checked for that problem?
Avatar n tn I had laser treatment for a torn retina about 6 months ago. I don't know if that is related to the present condition. When I close my eyes then open them, for a fraction of a second I see a pattern that could be the vein pattern on my retina. That's what it looks like anyway, like looking at a map of a river and its tributaries. This only happens in my left eye, the one that was lasered. Has anyone seen something similar and is this any cause for concern?
Avatar m tn I would prefer to be able to see at a distance without glasses and use glasses for close-up work if that is possible. Is it a possibility to have one eye set for clear vision at a distance and one set for close-up vision (without glasses) or would that tend to cause too much eye strain? At my age (57) is it likely that whatever lenses I am fitted with now will eventually become incorrect as I age and my eyes change shape, assuming I live to be 75+?
Avatar n tn Does anyone know of any treatment (apart from PUVA which did not work) for this? One Dr. said laser might work but they would come back. Is this correct and would they come back quickly or slowly? Has anyone else out there go the same condition and what have you tried? Please help!!
Avatar n tn In the meantime, I am watching the amount of fats I eat and praying another hospital visit is not around the corner. Does anyone know what options are available, or why the FDA has pulled this proceedure?????
Avatar n tn I also have vein occlusion. My doctor says that the vein occlusion may or may not have to be treated with laser and that in 15 years of his experience he has never seen an already operated macular hole redevelop after cataract surgery. You however did get the macular hole, albeit you had not had it operated before the retina detachment and the retina hemorrhaging.
Avatar n tn And thought it may have been from this. I recently had laser an vein surgery also.
Avatar n tn I don't recall reading that they remove fibroids laprascopically, unless they are taking the uterus out with them. Also check into the newer methods they are using where they inject into the vein that feeds the fibroids and shrink them. There has been some recent funding given to research being done into a type of laser (?) blasting. http://www.myomectomy.
Avatar n tn Remember there are innumerable problems in medicine where highly qualified physicians/surgeons will recommend 'different' courses of treatment. That does not mean that one is 'right' and one is 'wrong' instead both may represent 'different' treatments that are all directed towards the goal of making the problem better. Especially with new treatments it may take years, even decades before one course of treatment is demonstrated to be the 'only' course to take.
Avatar f tn I'm just wondering if CSR can heal on its own and how long does it take? And, I am a very young male who got it at age 25. I have no idea what caused it. And, I'm surprised and unaware of this condition!
