    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?

    Sharp pain in eye

    This evening, when using a towel to dry my hair, I was suddenly hit with a sharp stabbing pain in my left eye, which doesn't seem to be going away. Right after it started, I removed two eye lashes that were in my eye, but that didn't help. Now, when I blink or close my eyes, it feels like something is scraping or poking into my eye and it is extremely painful. Any ideas on what might be causing this or how to treat it?

    Blocked tear ducts

    2 years ago I had an irrigation/probing procedure done in both eyes by an ophthamologist in Ottawa. As this is often a short term relief,I am experiencing the same problem,watery eyes. I have read about the many benefits of chemical compound HYDROGEN PEROXIDE and how it is used as an antiseptic,oxidizer...treating infections, including plugged sinus which leads me to ask : do I dare use a drop over each duct which may perhaps unclog ? being very mindful of cleanliness. thank you very much

They are very puffy and red. I am so sensitive to light, I can hardly stand to go to a concert, movie or play. Sometimes driving, especially at night, can be almost impossible. I can hardly hold my eyes open because I feel like my pupils have been dilated. The doctor has prescribed Doxycycline antibiotic which has done....
