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. It's very noticable I've been going to the Dermatologist for the past five years and have been prescribed so many different kinds of skin creams, gels, hydroquinine creams and nothing seems to helps, it just turns it red and then get darker.
Avatar f tn Our son was diagnosed with keratoconus and fortunately we explored alternatives and have C3R (cornea collagen crosslinking with riboflavin) with Dr. Brian Boxer Wachler in Los Angeles. We flew from Tennesse to have the procedure. While we were in the office, I spoke with many of the other patients who had flown in to see Dr. Boxer Wachler. Many of them had a cornea transplant in one eye and were there to prevent having a transplant in the other. While there they learned Dr.
Avatar n tn The study was published by two of the Physicians of Retina-Vitreos Associates of Los angeles, CA, for whom I went for treatment.
Avatar f tn The other uses NanoFlex, and I can't remember if that was considered premo or not. Since I live in Los Angeles, there are lots of choices.
Avatar m tn I had both eyes implanted with Alcon SN60WF for Mini-Monofocus -- one is focused for extreme distance, the other for Distance with some Near focus -- No problem with the first eye, and no continuing problem with the second one, just that the morning after surgery when I turn on a light, it caused an excruciating eye -- I immediately used the eye drops intended to control swelling and within minutes I could open my eye to lights with no pain.
Avatar m tn I'm in the Los Angeles area. According to the registration card,my first lens was -12 (myopia, presbyopia and less than 1 diopter of astig). It has been 48 hours since cataract surgery and I can already use my 13" laptop comfortably at any location between 10 - 16". My vision isn't completely settled yet. I think the UHD screen is helping with its high contrast. I have slightly less reading range with paper documents.
233488 tn?1310696703 For persistent problems a complete medical eye examination by an Eye MD ophthalmologist is needed plus telling the Eye MD about your symptoms and how troublesome you find them. Self education on OSD is extremely important. If you are menopausal or post-menopausal be sure you and your gynecologist maintain optimal hormonal balance. (Many women with dry eyes have dry mouth and dry vaginal canal).
Avatar n tn Edwards, the CT cataract surgeon, said he'd try to make my bad eye (RE) equal to my good eye (LE). My good eye has BCVA 20/20 (Snellen) using -0.50 contact lens. His target is plano to -1.0. He answered all my questions but didn't really volunteer a whole lot of extra, or extraneous, information. I guess he's capable but without being a surgeon myself, who am I to decide that with only 5 to 10 minutes of conversation? Now, per your advice, I need a second cataract opinion. Dr.
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.
Avatar n tn Thanks for the names, one of them is already on my list. I'll just have to keep trying until someone is (a) willing or (b) able to figure out what the problem is.
Avatar n tn I didn't realize this was not the norm....I am 48 yrs old and my surgery was done at Kaiser Hosp. in Los Angeles. 90% of my day I do not use any glasses. My vision about 20/500 before surgery, and couldn't function without glasses extreme myopia. After surgery I was about 20/40 at 6 weeks, and now can see 20/30 and the last surgery was performed in June of this year. Recovery was very easy. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn You usually need 4 or 5 treatments, and it's not cheap. The cheapest I've seen where I live (Los Angeles area) is 1,500 for the whole series of treatments. But if it works, and you have a bit of extra cash, it might really be worth it. By the way, this kind of procedure has no down-time, as it acts on the area beneath the surface (it doesn't burn your skin off or anything like that). That's a major plus in my book.
Avatar m tn Prolonged computer use without glasses would probably give me a headache. If you set your dominant eye for distance and non-dominant eye for intermediate vision, you would probably be comfortable using the computer without glasses. I had a cataract in one eye only but I chose to have cataract surgery in both my eyes. My post-surgery distance vision in the eye without the cataract is at least as good as my best-correct vision was before surgery. I've never had a problem with my IOLs.
Avatar m tn I have to go back at the beginning of February for a refraction eye test to see how short sighted I am at that time, presumably to assess for laser treatment. I did read it takes about 3 months for the eye to heal following surgery, so will just have to be patient and hope things improve.
Avatar f tn some people also travel to No.Calif. to see docs up here, but it's a hassle. Also try searching LLMD Los Angeles and see what you get -- Keep your guard up, there are some quacks out there, but also excellent docs. I'm living proof of that. Let us know how we can help -- stay in touch!
Avatar f tn I'm PARTICULARLY CONCERNED, because I have to take care of my ELDERLY 88 YEAR OLD MOTHER and now I'm getting TOO WEAK AND SICK TO DO THAT!!! If you have any suggestions and/or can refer me to a doctor who can help me in the Los Angeles area, my Mom and I would REALLY APPRECIATE any and all assistance you could give. Thank you very much.
Avatar m tn They don't know much about it, there is no treatment, it is rare (but perhaps many people aren't being diagnosed right), lots of floaters in the affected eye are common. I actually have it in both eyes but didn't notice the blind spot in my left eye, but it is active in my right. Have any of you ever had a mfERG this would diagnose if this is actually a retina or optic nerve problem? Ask your opthalmologist about it. I was misdiagnosed with optic neuritis for 9 months.
86075 tn?1238118691 V-Beam is also a laser, IPL is not a laser. IPL stands for intense pulsed light. IPL actually covers more of an area than V-Beam and works deeper but not as intense. IPL is gentler on the skin and therefore IPL requires more treatments. Another name for IPL is the "PhotoFacial" laser even thogugh again it's not really a laser. As explained to me, IPL is more for redness, lasters like V-Beam are more for veins.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am 25 & am on Prednisone(60mg),salasapyrin(500mg)& Plaquenil(200mg) per day. I have developed a large moon shaped face. I am swollen in the face & neck & hate what it is doing to my face. Will this swelling & fluid go away when I come off the steroids in five weeks? It is causing me to be depressed & family have noticed the change in my face & are worried for my health.
Avatar n tn Bright lights seemed to have something to do with it, but now i'm not sure since i had a similar episode during the day. I live in Los Angeles and need to drive for work so I hope I figure tihs out soon.
Avatar n tn She trained for her lipodissolve injections in Los Angeles, not in St. Louis by the corporate Lipodissolve center in Chesterfield. At first, I was a bit concerned that she wasn't a "plastic surgeon" like the ones advertised at the other major clinics, but she has definitely proven herself to be very knowledgable and skilled at the procedure. The first treatment is only $400 if you just want one session. She has a lot of packages, too.
Avatar n tn Thankfully, I can close my eye which tears sometimes. I also find it more difficult to get my contact lens in this eye. Sometimes that eye appears a bit "squinty" and that side of my face and smile appear a bit higher than the normal right side! It seems like my muscles and nerves are learning how to work together again. My speech and ability to eat and drink is still affected, but is much improved. I feel changes and twinges's a painfully slow process...
Avatar n tn It feels as though my leg hairs and trying so hard to push their way through the skin on my legs. My next attempt at relief is to get laser hair removal to see if maybe it is mostly from my leg hairs. I'm not against trying anything and everything. As I stated I've lived with this for about 10 years and I am so ready to be done with it. I would love to wear shorts again, or go on water rides at amusement parks or SHOWER without fear.
Avatar n tn YES I still have little patches on my hips and under my arms that don't seem to go away but by going to a dermatologist they can give you FREE cream samples and offer to do a laser treatment that can PERMANTLY make these "white spots" dissaper FOREVER!!!
Avatar f tn I can't continue to sit here without answers! I live in the Los Angeles area and will go see any doctor that lives within walking, running, driving or flying distance; if you get my drift! Does anyone have a recommendation? I am going to start with a neurologist, as I do believe if this is the brachioradial prutitis, I should start with my cervical spine area. Anyway, I so feel for all of you. Feel free to write, call, Fed.Ex. (!!!)anytime. Need some humor here... my name is Kathy.
Avatar m tn There is a possibility that the infection could go into your ear, which happened to me once, but I found a way to avoid it. You could also accidentally rub infected snot into your eye and get an eye infection, if you are careless. The physiology of your head may be different from my head and you could experience a problem that I would not have, so it’s another risk you must assume. This technique will work for almost any infection of the nose, if you‘re willing to take the risk.
Avatar n tn The ONLY times it has completely cleared was when I would get a cortizone injection in my bad shoulder as well as the one time I was put on a Prednisone treatment for an eye infection. That's it. I live with it. But I would like to know if anyone has an idea as to what brings it on in the first place. Why, out of the blue, does it appear? I have no allergies nor exposures past or present to chemicals or the like. Any ideas? Any treatments that work? Thanks!
