Laser surgery pictures

Common Questions and Answers about Laser surgery pictures


Avatar m tn My Korean wife had corrective laser surgery done on her eyes when she was a teenager; and I've noticed that whenever we take a picture with the flash on, instead of her eyes flashing red they flash gold. Sometimes they flash gold even when mine didn't flash red. Why do her eyes flash gold? Does this have something to do with her laser surgery maybe, or is it more likely some kind of metal build up in her eyes or possibly even a tumor?
Avatar m tn Hi. I'm about to undergo preventative laser surgery to lesion the area where the lattice degeneration has occurred. Just wishing to know whether the laser will permanently damage my vision, cause problems with night vision, blurry vision, or any other problems? What can I expect immediately after the surgery? Will it be painful?
Avatar n tn He got paralytic stroke 5 years back but recovered with in four days and is very fine. His right eye was given laser treatment 3 years before for diabetic retinopathy (i think it was in inital stage) My father had a cataract surgery to his right eye on MAR, 2007. In JUN, we noticed that his eyes were red. Doctors at our local place gave drops for inflammation.
1206087 tn?1265757674 ( my surgeon said there is no reason he see's that i couldnt. he's had numerous scans and pictures taken of my eye) I was also wondering if there is anything i could do to help speed my vision getting better such as only use my weaker eye when im at home to let it adjust. all answers are appreciated.
Avatar f tn Using 3D Vector Imaging he showed me pictures of what I would look like after eyelid surgery, a facelift, injectable filler and laser treatments. What have been the experiences of others specifically with the 3D Vector technology?
Avatar f tn My concern is that after cataract surgery and YAG laser treatment my vision seems to be getting worse. My retina specialist and cornea specialist keep bouncing me back and forth with no results. I use speech to text so sometimes my grammar punctuation and spelliigs off. Sorry about that.
Avatar m tn Hi, I had preventative lattice degeneration surgery with an argon laser about one and a half months ago. My biggest concern is that my pupil is still dilated more than my other eye and it is causing my vision to be slightly blurred (especially up close). The doctor insists that it will get better and that the nerves in my eye are still in shock from the treatment. The post-laser pictures of my retina show no damage but I am still concerned.
Avatar m tn If it's problems with the capsule, I could benefit from laser capsulotomy, but if it's the former, laser therapy won't help and would limit future options.
Avatar n tn I informed my doctor of my symptoms as to the outcome of surgery. He ran several tests, take pictures, and he said that “It's nothing to be overly concern about”. "He said, that he thinks that he made me too nearsighted". He said, that it can be corrected, with something piggy back..but he suggests, that we wait until he removes the other cataract from the left eye, which his plan is to make "plaino" which means farsighted. I never really wore glasses before.
Avatar n tn to the point i dont even want to have pictures taken of me...etc etc etc....i had surgery when i was about 17, now im 30....the problem seemed to go away after surgery....but starting 2 or 3 years ago i started noticing my eye started to turn inwards again!!! im in chicago now....and i really think i need a second surgery.....i went to a doctor here....when i google i can only find one doctor that has a clinic in western avenue or he my only choice?
284078 tn?1282620298 I've seen several posts in recent weeks about desired monovision after cataract surgery. Since this is a subject near and dear to my heart that I deal with every day at the office, I wanted to give you some tips on how I deal with this very tricky situation. 1. Monovision is not for everyone, especially if you are into athletics or want clean crisp distance vision.
Avatar f tn There were two choices presented to me regarding cataract surgery and am not sure which to choose. Either traditional or laser. It seems laser is more precise and less cutting but the surgeon felt that with my strong nearsighted eyes, traditional would be better. Any thoughts on this? What else should I be asking the surgeon, and what else do I need to know or ask? I am hoping to get another doctor to evaluate my eyes before doing anything.
Avatar n tn This is an extremely painful condition. But I really do wish you would get a second opinion. I'm wondering if you can have laser surgery to remove the endometrial tissue. Have you tried birth control pills? I know with some women this helps. This is your body and your paying this Dr. I would'nt let him put a time limit on the surgery. Can you call another Dr tomorrow to get a second opinion? Be up front and ask how many hysterectomies he/she has done and if you can get references.
233488 tn?1310696703 Quite some time back a survey was taken of retina surgeons about letting their patients return to full activities after retinal detachment surgery (much more extensive than what your husband had). Almost all retina surgeons allowed full activity after a variable period of time (with the more extensive surgery generally several months).
Avatar n tn A radio active dye is injected in the vein and the patient must lie still on back for 1-1/2 hours or more while a large camero over the abdomin takes pictures about every 5 minutes to monitor the flow the of radioactive dye. My doctors office called me a few days after the test to let me know the test showed some gallbladder dysfunction and they scheduled me for a consultation visit with a surgeon. No discussion, no alternative solutions, just SURGERY! NOT!!!!!!
Avatar n tn 07, having serious pain again. Pictures showed movement around hardware. March 07, a third surgery, Dr. removed all hardware except ends of two pedicle screws which had broken off in verts. Nerve pain is now gone, now have bad scaring and muscle trouble, plus gained the 50 lbs back. Been a night mare! My Neuro. Dr. was great!! The hardware failed, anyone ever heard of that? I have the hardware, would like to find out if it was defected, can anyone help? Anyway, for all those still in pain...
Avatar n tn I am 39 Years old I had my left ovary and tube taken out along with an oblasion. It has been three weeks and the pathologist just called and said everything was benign !! I am so thankful. It took me a good 2 weeks to feel better I am still weak. I started back very slow at the gym today!! I need to get my strength back I was exhausted!! I want all of you to know that for the last six months the pain from the cyst and endo on my left ovary was making me go insane!!
233488 tn?1310696703 There are some very dangerous to moderately complication prone cosmetic procedures that are advertised on the internet. Articles are have been published in major Ophthalmology journals world-wide reporting complications anywhere from failing to make the eye whiter, to surgery necessary to remove "bling" to loss of the eye. This is not cosmetic eye surgery to give the eyelids a more youthful appearance (blepharoplasty) or a rounder shape.
1116823 tn?1303076444 I had a scar/lesion removal surgery on my penis, and most of it healed well, but some of it did not. There is a large opening on my penis - the skin that was suppose to connect did not. So now I have this opening on my penis - two flaps on the side, with a deep crater in the middle. It looks really bad, and I want to have this skin reattached to what it was suppose to...
Avatar m tn Addressed the surgery procedures and timelines involved for the surgery and the check-ups following each eye lens implant. Valium before the Laser and Versed at the Surgery Center, she says I’ll be on “vacation”. They gave me a prescription for all the fun stuff, Valium, Steroid, anti-inflammatory, and anti-biotic. Discount coupons included, and out-of-pocket costs for all the meds for both surgeries was $110.
Avatar n tn I will have cataract surgery in Dec and Jan. My surgeon wants to give me fixed focus IOLs for distance only in both eyes because I have too much astigmatism for any multifocus lens. During my cataract surgery, he will also correct my astigmatism with AK. My surgeon recommends against monocular vision because of depth perception issues. However, for many years, I very successfully had a distance contact lens in my dominant (right) eye and a reading contact lens in my left eye.
Avatar m tn I chose the specific center because of top surgeons It has been one week since cataract surgery. After surgery, in the operative eye, I am getting 20/25 vision as tested today at that facility. The eye chart wasn’t razor sharp to me but I managed to read the 20/25 line. It appears some of the astigmatism (cornea transplant eye) cannot be corrected with a corrective lens.
19867516 tn?1485721104 with something to calm me down. I went back for the 2nd surgery to take out the oil on Dec 7th 2016, and they needed to laser some more, but this time they filled the eye with compressed air. This 2nd surgery was much more painful , the anesthesiologist who gave me the calming drug told me afterward she had to double up the med's due to my blood pressure went up {they knew how painful it was} .
233488 tn?1310696703 rounding the cornea at time of surgery with brand new (2013) femtosecond laser; post operatively using lasik surgery to remove residual astigmatism. 9. In cases where one eye has a cataract that is symptomatic and causing problems with important functions such as driving, reading, recognizing faces, glare avoidance, etc. but the other eye has no cataract or a cataract that is small and not troublesome in people with large refractive errors special attention needs to be made to choice of IOL.
199177 tn?1490502134 Well, I had Plastic Surgery, and I have to be honest and say if I had it to do overagain, I wouldn't do it. I had a Breast Augmentation and Liposuction when I was 37. I have "Silicone" Implants, and I got mine put in right before they came out with all that bad information about Silicone. the Lipo was really a nightmare. The Surgeon said that the pain wouldn't be too bad and I'd be back to work in a week. Well for me that was not so. The Pain was awful.
Avatar f tn She is friends with this dermatologist so she would like her to take pictures and present those to the residents. She said laser surgery could fix these as well.....The laser surgery is no fun. When Brittany had it done, it looked like half of her face had been in a fire. It takes about 2 weeks to go away. The first time Brittany had the laser surgery, Cody threw up when we got to go see her when she was coming out of anesthesia. We were not prepared for what she was going to look like.
Avatar n tn It is possible that laser treatment might be safe and effective to remove them for cosmetic purposes. I suggest that you consult a dermatologist with capabilities in laser surgery to ask about this. Best. Dr.
Avatar n tn As many as 30% of patients having cataract surgery need a Yag laser posterior capsulotomy to restore the good vision. With the type implants used in the past the figure was higher than 50%. It's a quick, simple and painless procedure. Please use the "Google Images" search feature and get some pictures of a secondary cataract it will help you understand. It's part of your own lens that was left in place to hold the implant in position.
