Can happen: It sounds as if you have had a posterior vitreous detachment. This is a situation where the vitreous(jelly) of the eye detaches (not a retinal detachment), it then "crumples" up leaving dots, spots, strands of blurry vitreous; i.e. The "floater". You should have an exam to ensure the incident did not tear the retina, which could lead to a retinal detachment. Wait one year then consider surgery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have scar on eyelid n face due to injury 6 yr back. How it can be cured? Any treatment of hypopigment is there?Will mark removal cream help?
Healing over time: A scar forms when there is healing of an injury to the tissues. Remember that with almost all wounds, healing continues for months and months as we change the stress on the tissues. A scar forms as a result and may have many different appearances and colors. Any dark coloration may fade over time but the tissues never are the same and so some scarring will always be there. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The optic nerve, would need to connect its 1.5 million axons (the "wires" of the nerves) with the brain in a way that cannot currently be done. The cornea (front window) can be transplanted in cases of severe scarring from trauma. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I've always had puffy lower eyelids in the morning, but now my upper eyelids get puffy too. Is this normal?
Maybe: Puffiness of the lower and upper lids can result from fluid retention, sometimes worse in the morning due to lying horizontally while sleeping. When you stand up, gravity pulls the fluid down. The most common cause of "puffy" lower lids is fat prolapsing forward mimicking swelling. The upper lid skin can stretch and become redundant with age appearing swollen. ...Read more

Pressure r side jaw, head & neck.Swollen gum around tooth(no infection, per dentist). R eyelid spasms. Injury to r side of head 16yrs ago(hit by rock)?
Contradictory: How could you have a swollen gum, along with pressure on the right side of the jaw and not having an infection? By definition, swollen gum means there is an antigenic response in your gum and it is an indication of infection. Capillary dilation and chemotaxis of immune cells into the area to fight the infection causes the swelling. I would suspect malocclusion along with localized periodontitis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
