Common Questions and Answers about Laser surgery wrinkles


Avatar n tn the hard contact lens reduces the wrinkles by filling in the area between the contacts and the wrinkles with tears but it only helps when the contacts are on your eyes. there are ways to reduce the wrinkles, at times smoothing them out with the laser, if they are severe enough. You need an evaluation by an experienced LASIK surgeon. try to get a recommendation from an eye md (ophthalmologist) in your area who doesn't perfrom LASIK.
Avatar f tn I have read alot about accutane but have not seen wrinkles as a side effect. As a matter of fact, isn't accutane suppose to rid one of wrinkles along with acne? I am taking this for a cyst problem on my back, not my face. But my face now has some acne and these wrinkles look like I have aged 20 years in the past month. I asked my dermotologist and she said not to worry- it will go back to normal after treatment is done. Can these wrinkles really go away? Are they reversible?
Avatar f tn I am 66 yrs and nearly one year ago had face cosmetic ablative surgery performed. Of course I still have some wrinkles that bother me some on forehead, mouth, etc. They recommended(surgeon) that I have laser resurfacing and Obagi cosmetics afterward. I have put it off due to being afraid of laser. What would you recommend as best and second best method of skin treatment for someone my age. Thanks for any input you can give me.
Avatar n tn It sounds like you may need some new glasses and this should help quite a bit. Ocassionaly there can be some clouding or hazing of the posterior capsule that requires a yag laser capsulotomy. I have also seen some patients with some wrinkles or stria in the posterior capsule in the first few weeks after surgery that cause the diaganol lights you mentioned. The get better about 90% of the time on their own and need a yag laser about 10% of the time.
Avatar n tn I'm almost 28 days post cataract surgery on my right eye. My understanding was I would get a monofocal IOL for distance and LRI to correct for mild astigmatism. I have no issues with post op infection or inflamation. Using drops as directed. 1) At this point I don't have what I consider distance vision. I would call it intermediate vision. I focus best at arms length to about a distance of 6 feet. At a distance of about five (5) feet, I could read the 25 ft line on the Snellen chart.
Avatar n tn I has immediate surgery (within 24 hours) and a laser surgery 2 weeks later to fuse the retina. The chance of sucess was 70% I was told. The procedure was sucessful, although I still distortion with the vision I can now read wothout a magnifying glass. Theye is improving gradually. End of Nov. I had a detachemt in the rt eye. The same procedure was performed, but another detachment occurred 4 days later. A scleral buckle vitrectomy was performed.
382218 tn?1341185087 I'm considering having surgery to correct my deviated septum and am wondering whether this is might be a bad idea in light of having MS. I would think that the trauma might possibly induce a relapse? Has anyone here had this kind of procedure and if so, did it worsen your MS symptoms, temporarily or permanently? I could definitely live with the deviated septum, but it has gotten worse over the years and I often feel plugged up on one side.
Avatar n tn I am 49 years old and had cataract surgery on my left eye 11 months ago. The lens used was a Acrysof IQ Intraocular lens. After the surgery I experienced flickering light resembling strobe lighting in my vision with this eye. I returned to by surgeon after 3 months and was was told this would subside in 6 to 12 months as my brain adjusts to the new lens. It has subsided a little but I continue to have problems under florescent lighting.
Avatar m tn Apparently the astigmatism I had has been corrected (toric lens) but I am now slightly shortsighted (I had hoped for good vision overall). It has been suggested I could have laser surgery to correct this. My main worry is that I have what I feel is quite bad flaring from car headlights at night and also lots of circles around the lights, presume this is haloing. I see you talk about haloing and I am wondering if this has diminished/improved for you as time passes after the surgery.
Avatar f tn ve already paid almost $6500 that I had to save up to get the cateract surgery. 1st,will the Yag fix the wrinkles. 2nd, does medicare really require 3 months wait? I feel like the left eye is getting an infection or something.
Avatar f tn I have never been a fan of laser or vitreous surgery for floaters. Most Eye MDs would not think this a very appropriate course of action. You might want to get a second opinion from just a cataract/IOL surgeon.
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.
Avatar n tn I am 42 years old, I have some brown spots in my face, i am getting laser ( 3 times so far ) to correct them. but i've seen the spots are getting darker now. Is this normal?,how many times should i get the laser and for how long before i see good results ?.
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.
Avatar n tn In late Dec 05 and mid-Jan 06 I had successful cataract surgery and have the Restor lenses. Thursday I have some "tweaking" done with PRK. I'm mostly concerned with the recovery part. What can I expect? Thanks!
Avatar m tn But he did say that they can try and make it look less noticeable through laser theropy done with wrinkles and skin smoothening, it'll be in the 2-3 grand range. While I appreciate the honesty I'm still deeply disappointed with the diagnosis so I'd just like to get your opinion, besides the laser theropy he mentioned is there anything else I can do or am I stuck like this for life?

Avatar f tn When the first patch came off (left eye) my vision was much worse than before the surgery. The Dr assured me that it was just normal post-op distortion and to keep up my eye drops (antibiotics, anti-inflamatories) and not to worry about following through on the second eye. After the second surgery (right eye), I have a slight double vision in the right eye and the left eye continues to have triple vision.
Avatar m tn Hi, I had acne fron the age of 12,it slowly started disappearing at some point but left my entire face with scars and wrinkles.I tried various treatments and medications,even laser surgery- Nothing worked. Iam 28yrs old unmarried and developing lots of wrinkles on my face and looking like a 40 yr old.
Avatar n tn I tried laser and that doesn't work either. How does a laser make fibroblasts divide and secrete collagen/elastin (it damages your fibroblasts, making them older)? I am reading up on hyaluronic acid injections (restylene). Basically there is a company named Isolagen which will grow up your skin cells and inject them into wrinkles. Maybe one day they will do that for your stretch marks.
Avatar n tn Although my vision is excellent, except for the abberations, no opacificatiion, I am now scheduled for capsulotomy, both eyes, on Feb 13th to remove the wrinkles. Wife also had catract surgery in October. One eye developed PCO. She's scheduled same day for yag capsulotomy. The fun just keeps getting better. Thank you for your input. It is comforting to be able to get second opions.
Avatar n tn com/news/health/2007-01-27-floaters_x.htm I had lag laser surgery by Dr. karickhoff in 2004 and it changed my life ! The "floaters" disintegrated. They are all gone, however, I still see "clouds" and what I call " wrinkles" When you have PVD, think of it like bubble gum bubble deflating. The weiss ring is the edge of the hole ( outside rim) of where the eyeball attached to the back, and is now detached.
Avatar n tn As a general guide the treatment options range from local applications, superficial procedures such as microdermabrasion to lasers and cosmetic surgery. To treat chicken pox scars skin specialists first reduce underlying fibrous adhesions and later either perform a dermal filler or stimulate new collagen growth with Non Ablative Laser Rejuvenation. It will be difficult to recommend a particular treatment to you but there are many options and medicinal products available.
Avatar m tn Many people try to turn to surgical procedure or other treatments to fix the down sides with wrinkles or any other aging process. Surgery may be highly invasive, sometimes requiring months to recoup from as you get the medical bills from the mail. Injections may be painful, and the wrong professional can certainly offer you disease. Aesthetic laser treatments seems to be an approach to the pain sensation, nonetheless they still end up costing so much from your.
Avatar n tn Insecure and uniformed young women wanted a similar look so a booming new industry was born; laser vaginal plastic surgery. To counter this unnecessary and sometimes dangerous cosmetic surgery, my Genital Art Gallery became a research project where both women and men could share and appreciate the vast diversity of our sex organs." Which is how Betty Dodson wound up with an online gallery of pencil drawings of genitals.
Avatar f tn It just didn't feel like something I felt comfortable with the idea of having someone inject me with a known toxin just to get rid of wrinkles. To me, in that instance, the risk was not worth losing a few wrinkles over. Now, I'll inject the toxins of TX because they actually might have a purpose in helping fight this disease. Anyhow, I'm sure that if you've watched the news or read any magazines or newspapers that you've heard about these Botox parties that people will have in their homes.
Avatar m tn Try the IPL laser for getting the red out and evening the tone. Pixel laser for flattening scars and wrinkles. Good luck! It will get better. Luckily no ones perfect!
Avatar m tn that preserves anyone by unpleasant procedures only implement this product and also think that you might have taken a number of laser facial treatment or perhaps skin color surgery with virtually no discomfort and extra charges.
Avatar m tn Following cataract surgery I have developed swollen retina. I fail the Amsler grid! Treatments such as eye injections of steroids have not been very effective. Is this a usual consequence of the cataract surgery? And are there other treatments for swollen retina?
Avatar n tn Glaucoma has no real research under way that would benefit those of us with a present problem; only drops, laser surgery and shunts are available. Dry ARMD in the same trouble/no solution area. Solutions appear to exist for ARMD and glaucoma in Australia, Europe and Canada, but the FDA and MD's don't recognize them, preferring to go thru 6 or more years of trial to complete studies. Protect the public? Maybe.
