Avatar n tn Dear affy25, I would encourage you to have your sister take her daughter to an eyeMD. Whitening of the pupil is concerning and needs to be examined by a professional. The whitening occurs due to appearance of the tumor on the retina causing a change in the normal red reflex. Other diagnoses which can cause this reflex change include cataracts, glaucoma, retinal abnormalities such as colobomas, and high prescriptions [refractive errors]. Dr. Feldman Sandy T. Feldman, M.D., M.S.
Avatar n tn Get enough sleep and eat a balanced diet everyday. Application of a cool compress over the eyes at the end of the day may help relieve eye stress and eye puffiness.Wearing sunscreen and avoiding the use of abrasive cleansers and cosmetics for the face may help.
Avatar f tn I saw a Retinal Specialist yesterday and he mentioned that he sees a suspicious area in my left eye and referred to it as White without Pressure. He said that the whitening is preventing him to clearly see that area and it may or may not be masking a retinal tear. 1. What is the probability that this maybe masking a tear? 2. What is the usual prognosis of "white without pressure" 3. He mentioned that it's usually seen in myopic people.
Avatar n tn (b) monitoring the eye for immediate whitening; and (c) terminating exposure of the eye to the laser light prior to the onset of retinal damage But how does the whitening work? It cant be an instant whitening so the birthmark area looks white again? Do they have images such as pre and post? I quite like this idea, as I have mentioned before I do have a fear of accepting donor's parts... I read somewhere that if u have brown spots on part of your eye, it can be removed...
Avatar m tn I have a trauma in my right eye one week back .,now I am flash of light in my eye ...after examination of my eye doctor said that I have WHITE WITH PRESSURE..... So kindly tell me about this ...what is the fate of it & what is the treatment of it.
Avatar n tn Just read an interesting article about this subject and there are actually two eye doctors currently performing this eye whitening and vein removal surgery in the U.S. It’s kind of expensive unfortunately, but might be worth it for some of us that are really getting down about the matter: http://hubpages.
Avatar n tn It is important to get your eyes checked to determine the cause of the redness. Dr. Feldman Sandy T. Feldman, M.D., M.S.
Avatar n tn A number of different conditions can cause a white spot to be centered in the pupil and I would recommend that she get checked to determine the diagnosis. Dr. Feldman Sandy T. Feldman, M.D., M.S.
Avatar m tn one of the questions that i did have, i used to smoke, therefore i would put whitening eye drops in my eyes way to much. i am very anal about what my eyes look like, if they aren't perfectly white i get paranoid.. so for prob ateast 3 years straight i put whitening eye drops in my eyes, several times per day. could this have any affect on how my eyes react to this day? could that have damaged my eyes for life? i never use whitening drops anymore though, unless it is absolutely necessary.
Avatar f tn Dear blondieAS, I would recommend that you take your son to an eyeMD immediately. Any time there is a whitening of the red reflex with a photograph, this should be investigated and may indicate a serious problem, such as retinoblastoma. An eyeMD will be able to advise you. Dr. Feldman Sandy T. Feldman, M.D., M.S.
Avatar n tn And I hate the whitening (like looking through a flimsy paper) of vision. I just had a progressive eye-glasses, it does not give me any edge over 2 pair of glasses, except a little bit convenience. To Dr JCH I heard that there is no aspheric monofocal lens for hight myopia (-16), is this true ??
Avatar n tn the area around my mouth and chin is quite dark and can be easily spotted, my cheeks seems to be lighter but with dark spots which im sure is melasma, my eye area is quite dark compared to the rest of my face and my forehead a medium colour. i tend to get spots leaving marks which makes my skin look even more uneven, rough and though my skin may be soft, the appearence doesn't convey that, it always looks like i have spots and marks even when i dont!
Avatar m tn I used Nair on my face it says on the bottle i could just not near the eye and i developed burns that turned out to be skin discoloration on my face so the pigment is damaged and cannot tan. I have had this for 5 months and all the creams I've used does not help me get back my color.
Avatar n tn Middle of December I took a slapshot to the eye from a rigid PVC hockey ball (wasn't wearing a cage). I immediately lost vision in my right eye. I was rushed to the hospital and determined to have a hyphema. The only thing I could see was light. The next day, the doctors could not get an accurate pressure reading on my eye so they decided to perform an "exploration of the eye" surgery, and found out that I had no tears or ruptures.
Avatar m tn The treatment includes various skin creams like hydroquinone, azelaic acid, corticosteroids, tretinoin cream and laser treatment.Apply hydroquinone cream on this scar and it should go away in a few days to months.If it still persists then you can go in for laser treatment, Chemical peeling or microdermabrasion. Also take some vit B12 supplements and avoid lip licking.Also apply a good lip balm and sunscreens with spf 30 atleast half an hour before going out in sun.
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.
Avatar f tn I have read all the above and have had all the symptoms. Im so relieved and thankful for all the posts everyone else has put up! I have been to many expensive doctors and spent hundreds on medications to make this go away... Laser has worked for me, and the new "cold" laser is virtually painless, but now that its summer and im tanner, im not allowed to laser and the itching starts all over again :( now to try everything you all posted, thanks!
Avatar n tn (pronounce ro-z-shea )It's a skin disease causing red pathy skin and it's a sort of adult acne without the big bumbs, i had laser surgery done on my eye a month ago and they couln't figure it out either, I have fibromyalgia and a lot of other pain problems and take a lot of medications, but ibuprofen, i just started about the same time this started but i really need it for my arthrituis..
Avatar n tn i am not sure about what the dots are, but i do suggest you be very careful with the cortaid. hydrocortisone can cause eye damage if it gets in the eye because it is a steroid. though i doubt it would happen, getting hydrocortisone in your eyes may cause blindness. so, please tell him to be careful!
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 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 f tn This has resulted in a 100% improvement in the pain and feverish feeling emanating from THAT tooth, but I still have an strange irritating sensation emanating from the implant that extends to the cheek, nostril, and eye above the implant. I have a feeling the implant is the cause of the mouth trouble and wondering if it is the cause of my neurological symptoms as well. My physical activity has been reduced to a minimum compared to the level of physical activity previous to the surgery.
Avatar n tn I had an eyetest recently and they take a photo of back of eye, and she said the capillaries there were not leaking and seemed healthy so she assumed that would be the case for rest of body. I've noticed alot of people have mentioned their BP is low rather than high, umm, could there be a link?
