Laser scar improvements
Common Questions and Answers about Laser scar improvements
At the time I underwent laser surgery, as I was told that no other treatment was available at the time, but the laser did not stop the bleeding and I have lost a great portion of my central vision in my left eye. I was wondering if it is possible to remove the scar tissue that obstructs the vision in my left eye and if so, what improvements in my vision I can expect and what possible risk are involved.
After treatment, I'm left with massive, RAISED, dark red, keloid scars that are 2-3 times the size of the original mole.
I've been using Dermatix Ultra for over 3 months and I can't say I've seen any improvements at all.
Now my whole body is covered with horrible looking raised scars.
Is there anything I can do now at this stage or do I have to live with it?
Thank you in advance!

Several laser treatments in order to prevent the continued tearing before the following physical operations. A vitrectomy and laser treatment circling the retina inside the tear to prevent detachment. The eye was then treated with silicone to ensure attachment of the retina for approximately 8 weeks. Removal of the silicone and the resulting cataract by phacoemulsification followed by another vitrectomy to remove some oil not removed by the second operation. There was no sceleral buckling.
I wish I knew how I could tell the difference between parts of the gas bubble and floaters
I also keep hearing from my doctor good things and that the retina is attached (with the bubble no longer supporting it) but I am not out of the woods yet (as she says). She says scar tissue could still be a concern and that is known around 3 months post op
What can I celebrate or feel good about my eye? I want to put it past me
Anyone who has gone through this stuff, you deserve credit.

My last appointment was a checkup in 2014, and he told me he saw no improvements, and set me up with the specialist to get the laser surgery. The specialist treated me like a new patient, and sent me home telling me to stay on the contact. $150 wasted on both appointments running me around.
I was just going to stay on the contact for a long while before I tried messing with them again, but it's been irritating me more lately.
Back in April 2018 I an emergency vitrectomy on my left eye (detached retina came on suddenly). Successful surgery, but a cataract formed and will be removed in January. I've been so hopeful about the possibility of seeing clearly again (with glasses)! But, pow!, yesterday I had emergency treatment for a retinal tear in my "good" right eye. The retinal specialist used a laser to form scar tissue around the tear.
I underwent 2 surgeries - the first was vitrectomy/laser/gas to reattach the retina. A complication resulted in the removal of my natural lens. Due to the formation of scar tissue less than a month later, a second surgery included a scleral buckle/laser/gas. It is 9 months later now and I am very grateful that the retina has remained attached. However, I am now about +2.
forget about eyes am keepin my fingures crossed for gettin a clear skin through laser treatment ...its has been 4 yrs n 15settings of laser trtmnt..and still 10-15 % to go!!! i hav approched many famous eye and skin specialist for surgery or laser thng but they say that till now in our country there no treatment available...
Try to keep the eye pressure as good as possible and ride out this current problem and let blood settle down and then hopefully it can be something treatable with retinal laser and hopefully no more surgery needed. I'm worried that you might need more surgery and that prognosis is still not very good. God Bless You.
I am using the scar ointment, but had no improve!
I 've read some articles about skin atrophy ( what happened to me) and they tell that's irreversible.
I've read some foruns about it and no imrpovements of anybody too
I am desperate! I can't look to it... The Science need to be some solution!
My life is over because of doctors guilty!
I try to get the ingrown hairs out and it results in wounds and scaring. I really do not know what to do at this point. I tried laser, yet after the first session my face got out of control. I believe it must have happened when they first shaved my face (standard procedure for laser hair removal)- yet the shaving opened all the little acne bumps and must have allowed it to spread.
Someone mentioned diabetes and menstral cycle problems.
When this happens, it may stretch the heart chambers and lead to scar formation in the cardiac muscle. Scar tissue in the heart is the cause of lethal heart arrhythmias and cardiac arrest in some of the highly publicized cases of seemingly healthy marathoners who die during training or long-distance running events.
I am attaching a picture of my surgery scar to correct my Nutcracker Syndrome and I would also like to state that although I just had my surgery, my pelvic pain has improved dramatically.
I hope this helps someone!
The problem seems to be a Yag laser would be done first and then the refractive laser, which obviously increases the explantation risk. ( 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.
On return home my retina detached and had the cyro laser and gas bubble. retine still attached, bubble smaller but having heavy fog. Doc is having me wait 2 weeks to see if it clears, otherwise surgery. My two weeks is up tomorrow so hoping for a good report though still pretty foggy, unable to drive at night also.
Using lube if masturbating helps protect the area so it seems. It's four and a half weeks since I used it. Defo noticing improvements . Dr's again a week Monday. Will update if further improvement is noticed. Keep strong guys. If this has happened to you then don't worry. I've been assured all will return to normal.
I found another doctor I heard about from a friend who did a laser removal treatment of flat warts and made an apt (I had to wait 6 months to be seen)- I wanted to go to an insane asylum because I could not handle the pain, inconvenience, and the alarming growth rate literally over night. My mother took me to Feel-Rite (an organic and natural health and vitamin store).
Some said the dialation wouldn't be permanent, others said that the scarring would not be permanent. I have a blind spot from the retinal scar and my pupil has gradually become more responsive to light. It has not improved completely yet. I can't remember how long, but for the first while after being hit I had no response to light (maybe a month or two). I am writing this post because I have decided to pursue knowledge of eye conditions and advance awareness as I become an optometrist.
My therapist sent me for another operation to straighten it but it ended up removing all movement due to a build up of scar tissue and the fact that they cut some of my tendons. If i had my time again i would have left it the way it was.
Outdoor tasks of splitting logs (on an electric splitter) and light gardening were easily accomplished and everything was clear and had good focus.
Testing later in the day yielded results of astounding improvements in such a short time. Near focus for Left eye at 35cm, text was readable down to 3 point! The un-corrected eye at same distance was 36 point and not sharp, binocular was 14 point. Far vision was clear for trees and birds etc from 3 metres to 40 metres.
they did a biopsy shortly after i did this post, and nothing specific came back. i've had it treated w/ medication (pills and topical) and also laser and it'll seem to look a little better for a few days but then i'm almost to square 1. it just will not seem to heal. just today they decided to do a second biopsy, because they also find it odd and worrisome. they did diagnose me with rosacea b/c in general i am very pink with capillaries close to the skin.
If you do have a degree of simple astigmatism, it could be corrected with either a toric IOL (the correction is made within the IOL itself, which is anchored in the capsule such that it does not rotate), or with limbal-relaxing incisions during the cataract surgery. If you have the laser-assisted cataract surgery, depending on the laser platform the device can make these cuts automatically while mapping the cornea and softening the cataract.
And in my case, my Blue Cross paid for everything!) Since you're highly myopic, you would either need laser vision correction or a clear lens exchange on your other eye. (My Blue Cross paid for that eye, too!) But please don't even consider multifocal/accommodating IOLs. They're just not designed for eyes with a less-then-perfect retina. If you do have the retinal surgery, get aspheric monofocal IOLs made of acrylic for best results post cataract surgery.
I mean, my hands don't look as attractive without nails as they would with them, but when you think about what's more important, I would rather have no fingernails, then have scabs all over my arms and legs that will most likely scar. And I live in Las Vegas, so I would love to let my arms and legs clear up so I can start wearing shorts and tank tops again. Just thought I'd let you know that you are not the only one with this problem and thought I'd share what worked for me.
