Common Questions and Answers about Laser eye houston


163557 tn?1244116542 The ophthalmoligist looked at Brady's eyes yesterday and noticed that the retina on the right eye is starting to curl up..which means it time to go to Houston and get a vitrectomy. The good thing is, the Dr. he is sending us to does like 2-3 of these surgeries a week. There is a little more than 50% chance I think that they can save his vision. But hey, that's better than 10...and Brady is all about beating odds!
Avatar n tn I need to know will it get better and what is causing it. I live in Houston Texas an eye specialists I should see?Thanks for any help you can provide.
163557 tn?1244116542 Hi, Brady has to have laser eye surgery today...I don't really know all of the details because we just found out yesterday. But something about zone 1...which when it gets there, they say they have to do surgery w in 72 hours... There's a chance the surgery won't work and he'd have to go get another surgery in Houston. He is scheduled for this morning at 10 am...they will do it at the hospital. Please pray that it won't make his vision perfect.
Avatar m tn Also, this Surgeon suggested that I do my other eye soon after the 1st eye. My left eye isn't giving me any problems yet, but it would be great to correct most of my nearsightedness in both eyes. I realize that there's a small risk with cataract surgery and that because of my degree of nearsightedness an increased risk of retinal detachment. (right eye 29.
Avatar f tn My former doctor, who did the lasering in the good eye, told me the retina (in the good eye) would never detach. But I did not believe him, because I knew that I could always get new lattice. I do not know if I had any tears or holes when my former doctor 360'd my good eye. I will check my file again. Perhaps you think I should get a second opinion on what the results of this treatment might be? I am worried now.
Avatar n tn A few minutes after I turned the light off, when my eyes should have adjusted to the dark, something didn't seem right with my vision. So I covered my left eye with my hand, leaving my right eye open, and everything went pitch black. I couldn't see anything out of my right eye. With my left eye I could see the shapes and shadows that you can usually make out in a dark room, but out of my right eye was just total pitch blackness.
Avatar n tn The symphony lens option seems very interesting to me. Do you know of any eye doctors in Houston, San Antonio or even Canada that have experience with these kind of lenses? What was the total cost of your surgery for both eyes?

Avatar n tn I had Crystalens implanted 2 years ago in Houston. I have recently moved to Denver and need a recommendation for a good doctor here who could help me because I have a fog that is over my right eye and it is getting worse.
Avatar n tn I have mac degeneration in both eyes, angoid streaks from Pseudoxanthomaelasticum (PXE), I am 57 yrs old and around Christmas I had bad headache, dizzy, and started having double vision in my right eye. I also have a large black spot-I went to my retinologist and he said this is my new "normal" and sent me on my way. I went to my eye doctor and he did a laser test and was not happy with what he saw.
Avatar f tn I am now 72 and have been told I have moderate cataracts; right eye worse. I can function relatively well; have had glasses now for years. I have records before/post Lasik. I have consulted two ophthalmologists; neither wants to consult records. When I expressed concern about selecting IOL, the first discounted my questions and the second said, "Don't overthink the problem; I would suggest making the IOL about 1 diopter myopic." I expect to wear glasses post-cataract surgery.
Avatar f tn the constant scratching in that eye is terrible....NOTHING stops it....I just want to pull my eye ball out.....I also have a sharp pain at about four o'clock in the white area of that eye....and if I squint...and look out of my eyes there appears to be Fog that I am looking at....and there is a really strange 'blur' that the irritated eye a tail on just is not right.....Most of all ...I can't see well at night...WHY...Please someone answer me or tell me what to do.
Avatar n tn I am also looking for experimental treatments for the hypotony, in hopes of saving my eye. I have already tried ibopamine. Next, I will look into laser trabecular sclerosis next. Any knowledge of another direction I could go, to perhaps save my eye? I feel like I am falling off a very tall building. I miss Doc#1, but I do not understand his behavior. A very hurtful remark from him caused me to switch docs and also, in brief, he would not/could not communicate.
Avatar m tn Clinical findings revealed a full-thickness macular hole in 4 eyes, an outer retinal disruption in 1 eye, an epiretinal membrane in 1 eye, a schisis-like cavity in 1 eye, and intraocular hemorrhage in 7 eyes, 5 with subhyaloid hemorrhage and 2 with a subinternal limiting membrane hemorrhage. "The initial best-corrected visual acuity had a mean of 20/290, and the final best-corrected visual acuity in all cases had a mean of 20/40," Dr. Arevalo reported.
Avatar n tn I had an Alcon toric IOL to correct for distance implanted following cataract surgery 15 weeks ago. My distance vision in that eye is now 20/40 and the astigmatism is worse than before surgery. There is also an ache or soreness in the outer top quardrant of the eye that remains. A second opinion advised that the lens, instead of sitting flat, actually sits like a bowl with the center curving towards the back of my eye.
Avatar n tn I had L. cataract surgery, 19 months ago at a Medical School in Houston. Left eye, as it had no stigmatism like the Rt. eye. Post-op, Large PV detachment, left peripheral problems,distorted vision in L.eye and sharp,knife like pain in the upper lid. Getting no satisfaction to my post-op problems, I saw a new MD who diagnosed the Large PVD. I was not crazy.The new eyeMD stated he saw this Large PVD another time and the man suffered 2 years before it finally settled to the bottom.
Avatar n tn You also need to have a conversation with your surgeon about what type of implant would complement your lens in the other eye. If you are considering an explant getting a yag laser to clear the capsule will make an explant very difficult. Also find the most expert surgeon you can, who is experienced doing explants should you go that route, even if it means traveling to another city. Check my posts under londonbridge. Also Dr. Hagan and JodieJ.
Avatar m tn I am in my late 20's and have cataract on my right eye and traces of cataract on left eye. A little background is that my opthamaligist is reputable according to his background and experience. The reason I am asking for this referral is because I am seeking a second opinion. Since my consultation went by rather quickly and the MD seem to think there are much more risk to use Crystalens due to my age and the cataract I have. So he would recommend the Monofocal IOL.
Avatar f tn Hi, Dr. Feldman - Could you please comment on whether corrective lenses will improve vision w a dx of macular pucker? I would like to avoid surgery if possible. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Test with Baylor medicals at baylor college of medicine. You can treat any eye problems whenever you can. ITs best if you can get her seen asap. Id also reccomend a genetic councelor, since you are still learning about the disease. I have lived with IP all my life, and I have one child affect with it and one that is not. I have lost several babies due to IP so if you need anything give me a shout. Ive been there and done that..
Avatar n tn It is a simple procedure with a small extra step of the trab to relieve the pressure in the eye. No need for the laser is she is going to have to have catract surgery anyway. Go to a cataract surgeon who is glaucoa trained for the answer.
Avatar n tn He has now been diagnosed with macular degeneration in the other eye which is not yet affecting his vision in that eye. He is seeing a prominent retina specialist in the Houston Medical center but this guy says there is nothing that can be done for either condition. I have read about medication for macular degeneration that has some success and wonder if he should be taking this medication.
Avatar m tn Researched and found a real and top MD (former chief of surgery of opthm, Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, considered a superdoc by his peers), a week (didn't realize the distortion I was seeing was a detachment, thought it was from the lasering) later I'm getting a vitrectomy, gas bubble and 4,000+ shots of lasering to hold it down. Left eye had laser cerclage as preventive. No buckles yet. My gas bubble lasted almost 3 months. From Oct 14th thru Jan 4th.
Avatar m tn Personally, I would try to find the dominant eye and do the non-dominant eye first and shoot for about -1.25 to -1.50 in that eye. Then in the dominant eye I would try fine tune the results if possible after looking at the data from the first eye and shoot for about-0.25 to -0.50 roughly in the dominant eye - always making sure to error on the side of slight myopia and clearly avoiding any any hyperopia.
233488 tn?1310696703 This is not an exact science and the margin of error is +/- 0.50 but INCREASES with high myopia (long eye) or high hyperopia (short eye), eyes with previous RK, lasik, injury or additional eye diseases. 3. Typically the targeted post op refraction is between 0.00 (not needing glasses for distances of 20 feet (6 meter) or more) and -3.00 which has great vision for tiny detail at reading distance 13-14 inches. Any difference of greater than 1.
574673 tn?1234129578 ( I know I have been all through this before and I am driving myself and anyone else crazy) Anyhow do you know where I can find out the reputation of The Boston Eye Center (Dr. Samir Melki) and TLC Laser Vision ( Dr. Eric Donnenfeld). These are the two people I contacted so far who could do either explantation or Yag and laser. They lean toward not explanting.
Avatar m tn They seem to agree that a blended micromono approach with high asphericity in the near eye and low asphericity in the distance eye gets a very good binocular result where the near eye is good at 30 and 40 cm and intermediate and still usually gets 20/25 or 20/30 far, and the distance eye 20/20 or better all the way down to 60 cm allowing both eyes to work together most of the time. I am going to have one eye done with Chayet in March.
4760166 tn?1398360913 I had some laser treatments for blood vessel overgrowth in my retina ... every treatment just made them come back worse, so we stopped. All I learned from this fiasco is how to avoid the doctor. For about a decade, anyway. I was in a serious car wreck with my family when I was 12. We were hit by an 18 wheeler and spun 3 times on our way back from a vacation in Colorado (I will always have a place in my heart for suburbans before they were made out of tin foil) I was the only one hurt ...
Avatar m tn Please specify whether you got a monofocal or multifocal/accommodative IOL. I would like to know what distances you are able to see clearly. What distances are slightly blurry, but acceptable, and what distances are just unbearably blurry. I am particularly interested in those who have received Monofocal IOL set to Distance but I would also really appreciate hearing those experiences with different IOLs.
Avatar m tn I know you wrote about the cataract before and I need a second opinion on my eye. My doctor discussed there is 2 ways since my eye was so highly myopic (-15 on both). In both scenarios, he'll operate on the affected eye, leaving a minor myopia. But with the other eye: 1st option is to wear contact lens over the fellow eye which I prefer. 2nd option is to have lasik on that eye to bring its prescription down to maybe 7 or so, and with additional contact lens to fix the rest.
