    Pterygium and Mytomicim

    Does anybody knows about pterygium here? This is the situation: my mother was diagnosed with this condition. Indeed, she shares a lot of the symptons, like redness in the eye, blurred vision, itching sensation and the feeling of a foreign body in the eye. Her doctor suggested that, before going right to surgery, she used some eye drops of mytomicin to see if this works. Now her eye is really swoolen (actually her eyelid and that little bag below the eye). The other eye is fine. We asked our doctor....

    chalazions for roughly a year

    title is self explanatory, i only recently found out exactly what they are. they don't really flare up, are relatively small and unnoticable, and i've been wearing makeup often while i've had them. i'm sure i will see a doctor at some point, only because it's a bit annoying to have slightly uneven eyes, but is it really urgent? i've read things about them swelling and getting larger over time, but they were only like that when i first got them. ps: realizing i didn't specify....

    Eye problems

    Hi! I contracted pink eye in the end of April and the first eye drops I was prescribed I had a reaction to. It’s been nearly 2 months and I have a red eye with slight tenderness still. It looks worse some days more than others and I just don’t understand why it won’t go away. My vision has also weakened in my eye that I had the pink eye.

    Are there any complications in undergoing cataract surgery?

    Hi! I am very sorry to say that my husband is an alcohol addict. He drinks a lot and verbally abuses me. I am worried he would spoil his life because of his excessive drinking. I tried many ways to stop his drinking. But he is not able to stop his drinking habit. These days, he is troubled with some vision problem. He complained to me that he is experiencing blurred vision and has sensitivity towards light and glare. He also told me that he sees "halos" around lights. I took him to a nearby....

    Glaucoma and Dry AMD

    I had been diagnosed above problems in the early stages for the last about 2.5 years when I went to the Ophthalmologist for normal check up of my eyes.Still there is no appreciable deterioration of my above problems. Since the beginning, I have been using Glaucoma eye drops Travatan once a day and Azopt twice a day. Recently I was advised by a friend to start taking Flax Seed meal Powder for my abdomen problems. I like to know if Flax Seed Powder will have better or bad effect on my eye problems....

    Light Therapy and Eye Conditions

    Hello. I have a light therapy box that I use to treat depression. It has a UV filter that blocks 99.3 percent of UV light. Do you think that it could cause cataracts or a serious eye condition if I use it for many years? Thank you.

    Eye dilation for infant

    How much gap should be given between two consecutive eye dilation for an 1.5 year old infant? My son 1.5 years old has been advised to wear glasses of -2.50 cylindrical power for both eyes recently after I consulted a Paediatric Opthalmologist. I want to have a second opinion from another Paediatric Opthalmologist. This check up requires eye dilation and I need to know after how many days I can plan for the second opinion as during that second opinion also eye dilation drop will be applied.
