Common Questions and Answers about Laser eyelid surgery


Avatar f tn We have been to eye doctors since he was 8 months old, and now the latest eye doctor has decided to send us to a surgery eyelid doctor. They said that his right eye is +3 and the left eye is +5 therefor the droopy eyelid is affecting his vision in his left eye. If you can please answer the following questions, it would be greatly appreciated: 1. What are the complications? 2. Can he touch his eyes after surgery? 3. How long does the surgery last? 4.
Avatar f tn Upper eyelid folds means there is an excess upper eyelid skin, which can be reduced with surgery or the non-surgical laser resurfacing. The latter can be repeated and may take several treatments and can cost more than the surgery.
Avatar n tn The only treatment is removal by surgery with/without skin grafting (depending on the size of the lesion) or use of laser (CO2 Laser). I hope that helps. Please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts.Warm regards.
Avatar n tn 99.9 to 100.7 everyday. Because of an abdominal surgery planned, I had a recent CBC that showed elevated monocytes (twice normal) and that doc is aware of my HA/temp changes, so he actually cancelled the procedure until it resolves. 12 years ago I had Bells palsey for 3 months (when I was 12 years old). Could it be coming back?

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn I had retina detachment surgery on my right eye a few years ago and the day following my surgery my eye was blurry and very dry. I have been to several eye doctors since the surgery and all they tell me is that my eye is extremely dry and that the surgery couldn't have caused it. If that is the case, why was my eye not blurry before the surgery? No one seems to have an answer for me and it is very frustrating.
Avatar f tn My pressure was normal in both eyes, but my doctor recommended that I have the laser surgery for this condition. I had the last laser surgery done on my left eye on May 19, 2009. Since then I have noticed that when I am in bright light or it is shining in my eyes, I see what looks like a piece of fuzz when I blink my left eye. It is only in this eye. At first I thought I actually had a piece of fuzz on my eyelash but realized this was not the case.
Avatar n tn I am afraid my right eyelid will be visibly disfigured. What should I expect cosmetically after the surgery if I were to have it performed? Would it be clearly distinguishable?
Avatar n tn This likely represent old blood under the skin. It should get better with time. I don't think you can do anything to make it go away faster. Red blood cells generally take 120 days to disolve. If you're really really worried get a second opinion but likely you will be pleased several months from now.

Avatar n tn Good Morning, Yesterday I was diagnosed with catarats & clogged eyelid oil glands. I am a 50ish females with severe nearsightness. Both my paternal grandfather & father had cataracts, though not until they were in their 70's. My vision has improved over 2 diopters, so I have ordered new glasses.

Avatar n tn Is the drooping eyelid and large pupil only due to the Pred Forte or may there be complications related to the surgery? I know that on the side effect warnings for Pred Forte, dilated pupils as well as eyelid drooping are listed. She is now going on to a 1/2 dose (1 drop per day).

Avatar n tn I have laser surgery to correct my eyesight over 10 years ago and am now considering doing something about the bags under my eyes which make me looked tired all the time. I have heard people who have laser surgery before having vision problems after going thru an upper blepharoplasty. I am not sure if similar problem would occur if I am having the eye bags done only. Thank you in advance.
Avatar f tn Two ophthalmologists have agreed that the ptosis of my right eye is getting to the point where surgery is needed. Some people suggest that a plastic surgeon would have more experience in this though I think my ophthalmologist probably has quite a bit also. What is your opinion? Also, if it were a plastic surgeon would it still fall under "medically necessary" for insurance purposes or would that have to be only an ophthalmologist.
Avatar n tn after a car accident in 1993 I had a laceration to my eyelid; I was worried about the surgery but the doctor said it was alright. How long does muscle strasbimus surgery last the doctor who did it Dr. Marcia Bakoss in Brooklyn, NY said it would either last 20 years or for life, is this so?

Can an opthamololgist detect this surgery as well as strasbimus surgery with special equipment?
Avatar n tn I had a chalazion removed 4 weeks ago from my upper eyelid. I went for my 2 week follow up visit and all checked out fine. Now a week later I have developed what looks like a pimple with a white head on the same eyelid. could this have something to do with the chalazion or is it a pimple? I have never had one on my eyelid.

Avatar m tn On January 4 2011 I had an IPL laser treatment done under my eyes to help reduce dark circles, the skin is very thin due to damage from sun exposure. The next day, my left eye started twitching on the bottom corner lid of the eye near the nose. I ignored it and attributed it to stress, but after a month with no let up I called my dermatologist and was assured these non ablative lasers cannot penetrate deeply enough to cause any nerve damage. So I let it go.
1476310 tn?1287179325 My eye was a bit droopy after the first surgery. This past May (2010) I had the cataract out. Now my eye is even more droopyl it's pretty much half- way shut. Is there anyway to treat this? Is the drooping from having keloid skin therefore, scar tissue? The affected eye is now only half-open compared to the more healthy eye, and it's starting to interfere with my sight in that eye. The eye also gets dryer than it use to.
Avatar f tn To add insult to injury, i will have to have a YAG Laser Capsulotomy sometime in the near future - so i don't know if i should get that corrected before doing any eyelid surgery. I would so appreciate your input...
Avatar n tn Dear Missmoodyblue, As with all surgeries, there may be a healing process associated with the surgery. Sometimes, one can feel a sensation in their eyes, much like any surgical wound, which over time usually improves. Alternatively, your eyes may be dry or you may have an eyelid infection or inflammation associated with lack of eyelid hygiene and disruption of tear film due to the recent surgery. It is important to speak with your eyeMD and get your questions answered.
Avatar n tn Four months ago I had cataract surgery. Right eye went fine. Left eye is another story. I have had pain in the left eye continually. I was told I had an eye lash in my eye, I had my glass lenses changed twice, I was told I had dry eye. I was given plugs and then got eyelid infection. I am going to my doctor in a couple of days. I have used an humidifer and went on eye vitamins. I still have eye pain. What should or could happen next? Should I just learn to live with it?

Avatar n tn (after they removed my tube from anatheasia) I had scleral buckle surgery on my right eye 9 years ago and have had 2 laser surgeries on my left eye-once at the time they did the scleral buckle on my right and the other was about 2 months ago. The laser surgery didn't work so they proceeded to do the scleral buckle. My recovery is going nicely. I'm 6 days post-op now. It's still blurry, but to be expected. My eye still looks extremely red too.
