    How Risky Is Eye Surgery?

    The risk or danger of eye surgery? Hii guys, I am Tejas Rane, working as an analyst in digital marketing agency from last 18 months, at the start, everything was going pretty well, but from previous six months, I was having some problem in my eyes. So I went to the doctor and informed him about the problem I was facing, so he checked me and told me to start wearing spectacles. So it got sorted out. But I don't like to wear glasses. I am thinking of getting eye surgery done. I have also read somewhere....

    5 yr old female with Ammonia burn on both eyes

    She was accidentally misted with a bottle of cleaning solution that contained ammonia. If the burn was immediately flushed by water, would surgery really be necessary to replace "anything' (if she has actually made and is still making progress). She can still see, yet her vision is still blurry. I just don't completely trust what I'm being told. Any help would be so incredibly much appreciated!!!!!

    Sunlight Eye Damage?

    Might be nothing and I don't know if anyone here would have the answer to this or not. Today I was outside and forced myself to look at something, while squinting, and resisting the urge to look away due to sunlight hitting the corner of my left eye. I resisted a somewhat strong urge to look away for roughly 1.45 seconds. During that time, I felt an unpleasant sensation, as if the sunlight was doing damage/had the potential to do damage if I didn't stop when I did. I assume if I did any damage....

    Undiagnosed ongoing condition

    Post Cataract Surgery

    I had a cataract removed about a year and a half ago. I think too many of these procedures are done and not enough attention is paid to informing the patient of potential problems. I had and have a vitreous separation and the cataract surgery was performed on the same eye. I now have a retina wrinkle in that eye and it's getting worse. My surgeon, supposedly the best in my area did not inform me I was at increased risk for this happening. I have now been told I need a secondary cataract surgery....

    Exudative Retinal Detachment

    Needing some advice from any specialist monitoring. I had an area of schish which had shallow retinal fluid; the surgeon opted to create a barrier around it; from 10 o'clock to 5'clock; this was done in April and that has held. Then in May, CSR showed up and i was told there is fluid on the periphery from 3'oclock to 1 oclock (as I see in vision). there was shallow fluid at the top as well. After a few followups, there was no tear, it was ruled to be exudative retinopathy; the flareups....

    Retinal Detachments

    Hello, my name is Peter, I am 22, and I've had a retinal detachment for about 6 years now. I've had 6 surgeries (plus one cataract) to fix my detachment. But unfortunately they failed. I lost vision in my right eye, and my first doctor told me that the retina is attached, but because I had so many surgeries, the scar tissues won't permit me to see. But recently, another doctor told me that the eye is completely detached (which explains why I can't see). He told me that I shouldn't....

    Post-cataract surgery

    I noticed shimmery edge glare following cataract surgery eight day ago and the condition has not yet approved. How long does it usually take to clear up? Should I simply continue with the drops and wait... or is this something to discuss with my surgeon before he does the other eye in five weeks time?
