    Eye Surgery

    About 8 years ago, a friend received a free eye exam via a charity organization. The doctor indicated that the optic nerve was pale and there was something behind the eye and that MRIs of the brain and orbit wwo was required because brain tumor, stroke, etc. were likely. MRIs at that time were out of range; however, a 2nd doctor recommended blood tests to rule out Giant Cell Arteritis which was done and proved negative. Current day: Friend now has insurance. One eye is blind. The other apparently....

    Intraocular lens replacement

    Is it possible to have a intraocular lens replaced? I had cataract surgery in 2012, and my vision is bad even with contacts. My left eye had a tear in the retina, and my eye surgeon ended up removing the fluid inside of the eye and replacing it with silicon oil. I had a reaction to the oil and the pressure shot up sky high in that eye. As a quick remedy and against my wishes and without telling me the end result, the surgeon slit my iris. The eye stays permanently dilated and I have to wear dark....

    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....

    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.

    Sudden vision change after blow

    I have had cataract surgery, followed by retinal detachments in both eyes. More than a month ago I received a blow to my eye, with severe blurred vision. When I move the eye it is like looking through wiggling jello. My eye doctor says there is no detachment but that the eyeball has changed shape. He wants to correct it with glasses, but I am wondering if he could really see a break in the vitreous. The specialist who did the surgery for the retinal detachment is very out of town, but I am debating....

    Glaucomo and receding eyelid in one eye

    In Oct 2017, after visiting my opthamolgist because of an unusual feeling in my left eye, I was diagnosed with dry eye and prescribed Restasis. Within 2 days of Restaisis my left eye opened very wide. My opthamologist erroneously suggested a neurological problem. I went to Emory University Hospital Opthamology for a second opinion and learned I have glaucoma in my left eye only, but they could not explain the receding eyelid, since my blood thyroid level is normal. Over the past 5 months, at Emory....

    Is there any chance of developing cataract even after a cataract surgery?

    Hi, I am a native of Canada. I am 24 years old. I was experiencing severe headache for days. And I even had water coming from my left eye. I was not able to use my mobile and computer for a long time and I was not able to read books clearly. Everything seems to be blurry. I was recently diagnosed during a routine checkup as having a cataract in my left eye. I am worried about the development of an early cataract. The doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. But I don't like wearing eyeglasses. So....
