Common Questions and Answers about Laser surgery information


Avatar n tn At first i went to the gyno and she treated the only one i had with medicine that burned, sorry i dont know what it was, then i got an outbreak worse three weeks later. I just recently went back and she scheduled me for laser surgery. I really just want to get rid of them. Is laser surgery just a quick fix? or should i be using something different before i have laser surgery.
Avatar m tn I had CO2 fractional laser surgery 3 weeks ago and my face is still red. Is there anything I can do to lessen the redness?
Avatar n tn My eye sight is quiet weak around -6 for both left and right. I wanted to get my laser eye surgery done to get rid of glasses forever. I went to the dr yesterday, he did few tests and then he told me that I can never ever have my laser done because my cornea is very thin and they cant make it more thinner. Another thing he told me is that my Retina is weak as well, which he meant by spots. I did have this in my mind that he would say this because I knew about it already.
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed by an opthomologist with narrow angles and he recommended that I have laser surgery to open the angles and prevent the possiblility of narrow angle glaucoma in the future. I am a 69 year old female with a very small cataract that is not near the surgical stage as yet.. I was told that this laser surgery is minimal risk, and my eye pressures are normal at this point. The decision is up to me. Exactly what are the risks and how old and perfected is this laser procedure?
Avatar n tn Thank you very much Dr. Fazio for the information about femto second laser cataract surgery. I wondered if you knew of a highly reputable cataract surgeon located in the Denver, CO region (preferably the Ft. Collins area) who is very experienced in the use of the femto second laser? Thank you again.
Avatar m tn I will be having cataract surgery and have a choice of with or with-out laser-assisted surgery. Am I likely to have a better outcome using the laser? It will cost more. Thanks!
Avatar n tn Read as much as you can without becoming too overwhelmed. Search the internet for information on Cataract Surgery using femtosecond laser method. Search your area for MDs using this relatively new method of surgery but I personally believe it is worth the extra out-of-pocket expense. Keep asking questions. Take care.

Avatar n tn the dr put her on topril with her other meds and said that by november if there is no improvement she could look into this new laser surgery. No one seems to know much about it. I am also a nurse and I have to unravel this puzzle but not sure where to start. any info would help.
Avatar n tn Are there any data relevant to the relationship between green laser surgery for BPH and development of cancer after the operation?
Avatar m tn On January 3, 2012, I had to go through the YAG laser procedure to get rid of the scar tissue from the cataract surgery in my left eye. Since the first YAG procedure in January, I have gone through this procedure two more times, January 17, and February 14, 2012. I have been looking for information on this and I cannot seem to find it. What I need to know is how many times does a person have to undergo YAG laser before it finally causes damage to the eye, more specifically the retina?
Avatar m tn I have two questions related to this procedure, but, first, I wish to submit some background information on the cataract surgery and its results. After implantation of a "far-distance" IOL (toric) in the left eye, I agreed to use the monovision technique. Residual astigmatism in both eyes after surgery was zero. Optical power corrections needed are -0.50 diopter for the left eye (for viewing objects at 20+ ft) and -0.25 for the right one (for reading at 18 in).
Avatar f tn I have recently had a cataract removed from my left eye and a lens implant (power 13.5D). Since the surgery I have had a lot of floaters and my vision seems to be getting worse. I have a catarct in my right eye and also will be needing surgery shortly for it. I am concerned about having these same problems with my right eye as I have with my left eye. Sometimes I also see flashes of light when my eyes are shut. Is there anything that can be done to save my eye sight?
Avatar f tn Yesterday I had a tear in my left retina repaired with laser surgery. When the doctor began the proceedure I experienced an immediate and excruciating pain on the top left side of my head, as if someone had hit me in the head with a brick. When I told the doctor he said "sometimes people get headaches". I have had migraines for thirty years, and this is the worst head pain I have ever experienced.
Avatar m tn i have tried all remedies and im starting to consider laser scar surgery. i have tried everything and i just want this gone :( my questions are: is laser scar surgery effective? what type of treatment do you think i need for my scar, and is there any good laser scar surgery places in los angeles? thank you for reading.
Avatar m tn I just had laser surgery today and I had a few questions about the disease that my doctor failed to answer or I failed to asked due to anesthesia. 1. How long is the recovery period following surgery. He gave me the ground rules, but didnt say when I would be recovered. 2. What is the incidence or stats of the warts returning? My doctor said there was a very high chance of them returning, but I have heard from other sources that isnt the case. 3.
Avatar n tn My husband is 48 years old and we live in the UK. He had laser surgery early in 2009 to correct his vision but it hasn't been particularly successful. He's not considered suitable for further laser surgery and It has now been suggested that he have an operation to remove his own lens and replace them with prescription lenses to correct his vision.
Avatar n tn Last month, my retinal specialist determined I had lattice degeneration and that I had a hole that needed to be repaired via laser surgery. My question pertains to future holes, etc. Does having one tear/hole predispose me for a stronger likelihood of future tears? Or, is there no real correlation - as in just because I had one tear doesn't mean anything about future occurrences.
Avatar f tn especially b/c the eye surgeons I've asked for information so far both use laser assisted...I think they all do as a matter of course at this center (It is a excellent major eye center!). Surgery is not soon -but in future .....thanks.
Avatar n tn My laser treatment - surgery - is planned for January. Has anyone had laser surgery for genital warts removal before? I am worried about the scarring and the recovery part of the surgery. My Dr. said I would be in bed for about 15 days following the surgery, and that it would take about 1 month to heal completely. I've heard about horror stories... bad scarring... tissue sticking together... skin not being the same afterwards, and complicated intercourse following the surgery.
Avatar n tn 1) do nothing and wait, 2) surgery (cholecystectomy), 3) non-surgical options. The standard treatment for symptomatic patients who suffer from gallstones has been to have the gallbladder removed surgically along with its contained stones. Removing the gallbladder may have little or no effect on digestion.
Avatar f tn I also havea progressive eyeglass prescription to wear at the computer at work Just had a recent retina exam and tiny hole was spotted in one eye. I had laser treatment that same office visit. At my follow up visit to specialist, what questions do I need to be asking? I think I need more information about my retina health before deciding to proceed with cataract surgery this year. Am I at higher risk of detachment because of this hole?

Avatar n tn within the last month my pores have become very large. I am scheduled to have laser surgery for the blood vessels and redness on my face on Jan. 4, 2006 I have been doing some research and I am a bit overwhelmed and confused and don't know which direction to go in. My doctor uses the Photogenica V-star pulse dye laser.. but I have been reading up on IPL treatment. Can you please tell me what the differnce is between pulse dye lasers and Intense pulse light (IPL)?????
Avatar n tn So, if the lens is already cloudy, and the only current option is to destroy and remove it (with or without a laser), then it seems to me that there is nothing to lose by using a laser to try making it clear again, because if it doesn't work then it has to be removed anyway! I fear that research into treating the cloudy lens is not being encouraged - after all, there are enormous financial implications for many parties the world over if lens bleaching works.
Avatar n tn Yes the cataract that you get with RP is often a PSC cataract and can be difficult to peel the last remnants from the posterior capsule. Thus it is not unusual to need a YAG laser capusulotomy in a few months after the cataract surgery. Very common. Normally, I would not do the yag laser until the implant has been the eye at least a few months - preferabley 3 months. Also if you do it any sooner than 3 months - the insurance company may want a detailed expanation as to why.
