Avatar n tn 'Is there a possibility that something I do is likely to cause the laser surgery (that I had for retinal detachment) to be less effective?' yes. jarring head and eye motions & injuries should be avoided. boxing, bungee jumping, car accidents, etc. 'I can't help but wonder if things like running or weight-lifting would cause the scarring to be less able to hold (?)' no. weightlifting and running are both fine. every normal exercise i can think of would be fine.

Avatar n tn I'm an african american with medium tone skin I have developed some type of dark pigment on my face near my eye area and it extends to my upper cheek area. It looks as if some one has given me two black eyes.

Avatar n tn I started noticing the discomfort in my left eye about 3 days after having laser surgery. The "something in my eye" usually goes away eventually but while I am experiencing the discomfort, I am ready to pull my eye out. I dig things into my eyelid, trying to make it go away. This is a slow means of torture to say the least. This last bout is leading to insanity so I am going to try to get into see an eye specialist again.
Avatar n tn I'm 23, never any surgery or eye injuries. I do lift weights and use a computer/read a book quite a bit, but it seems that even when I don't use the computer/read, the spot remains. (I didn't do either of those much this summer, for example. Surely less than 3 hours.) Do you think that lifting weights could lead to this kind of a condition?

Avatar m tn We have had a number of eye injuries from badmitton. From now on wear protective glasses for all racquet sports. The laser does not cure the hole it seals it shut. It is generally not painful or minimal pain; varies from patient to patient and procedure to procedure. As to the risks and benefits you will need to discuss with your surgeon.
Avatar f tn Sometimes, it may be related to diabetes or eye injuries. Dr. Feldman Sandy T. Feldman, M.D., M.S.

Live a healthy lifestyle, don't smoke or grow obese, eat a good diet, avoid activities that carry risks of eye injuries and consider wearing glasses to protect both eyes for your daily activities.

Avatar m tn Hi, Hyperpigmentation Removal treatments are used to eradicate darkened areas of the skin which may result from hormones, sun damage, injuries, skin-type characteristics, medications and more. Hyperpigmentation lesions can be anything from melasma/cholasma often attributed to pregnancy or hormonal imbalances to freckles. The first step is consulting with a qualified surgeon or dermatologist to determine the cause and then go over your options for a solution.
Avatar m tn Amy Schefler, MD, from Retina Consultants of Houston, who is clinical assistant professor of ophthalmology at the University of Texas, said that she has not seen any injuries with the blue laser, but has seen similar injuries from the YAG laser used for hair removal. She agrees with Dr. Arevalo that it's tough to regulate Internet sales. "I'm no expert in government regulation of Internet purchases, but it's obviously challenging," Dr. Schefler said.

233488 tn?1310696703 It is important for him to follow up regularly with his ophthalmologist for a dilated retina and peripheral retina exam. He should see the Eye MD immediately with sudden increase of floaters, flashes or loss of peripheral vision. You need to ask he surgeon specifically about activity. As a generalization return to golf and tennis would be allowed by most surgeons after 7-10 days.
