Eye: This could be a plugged up eyelid gland, either a sweat gland (sty) or oil gland ( chalazion). The usual treatment for both is hot packs applied to the site. If not better with that in a few days or if there is redness to the eye and/or discharge, you should get it checked by a doctor. ...Read more

How low does the eyelid need to be for a brow lift? My facial nerve is paralysed and I have alight gold weight implant, but my lid droops to the pupil

How low does the eyelid need to be for a brow lift? My facial nerve is paralysed and I have alight gold weight implant, but my lid droops to the pupil

Contradictory goals: Your facial nerve a paralysis is the primary problem. Without the gold weight pushing down your eyelid to help, with closure, your cornea could be exposed and abraded leading to scarring. Performing a brow lift now may lead to more corneal exposure. It may be better to consider a lighter or less heavy gold weight but this cloud lead to further exposure problems. Springs may be used but problematic. ...Read more

Eyelid : Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, doesn't really change the elasticity of the eyelid skin itself. It can involve removing excess skin and repositioning or removing excess eyelid fat. To change the skin itself topical medications and/or resurfacing may be options. ...Read more

What do we need to do if a paintball splatters in an eye it is red and swollen around the eye

What do we need to do if a paintball splatters in an eye it is red and swollen around the eye

Hi, : Hi, i would be concerned about a couple of things: 1. You may have a rupture in your eye. In this case, don't touch the eye and go straight to er. 2. If you only have the chemicals splattered into eye, you may wash the eye out with water to minimize chemical injury. 3.

What could cause my newborn's eyelid to not close, water, and the eye look slightly larger?

What could cause my newborn's eyelid to not close, water, and the eye look slightly larger?

Sometimes it is a hereditary feature, meaning that one or both parents had the same appearance as a newborn. On rare occasions, there is something wrong with the eye(s, ) such as glaucoma. ...Read more

What is the right cream or ointment to accelerate the healing after nose surgery? I plan to have nose surgery to correct my excessively long and narrow nose. What should I know about choosing a cream or ointment to improve the healing of the skin followin

My : My suggestions to patients regarding how to take care of their incision lines includes twice daily application of diluted peroxide followed by plain vaseline (for 10-14 days). I find this helps the healing process. There's not much else for you to do to accelerate the skin healing otherwise. Your surgeon may have their own recommendations so i would suggest following what he or she suggests. ...Read more
