A female asked:

how do i pick a surgeon for asian eyelid surgery? should i focus only on surgeons who specialize in asian eyelid surgery? or is it similar enough to regular blepharoplasty that i can use someone who specializes in that but not necessarily asian eyes?

The : The surgeon who has enough training to perform asian blepharoplasty( eyelid surgery) and also has performed good numbers of that surgery with good post op results. ( always ask to see the pre and post operative pictures!).

You : You should first focus on a surgeon who specializes in eyelid surgery (an oculoplastic surgeon). Look at the american society of ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgeons (asoprs) website at www.Asoprs.Org to find one near you. There are not that many who "specialize" in asian lid surgery but if you find one, interview him before you sign up for surgery.

You : You should pick your doctor the way you would pick any other doctor. Verify credentials and hospital affiliations. Get referrals from other trusted medical professionals. Meet with at least 2 or 3 and discuss your concerns and expectations.

Asian blepharoplasty: Have your eyelids evaluated by a board certified surgeon with expertise in these procedures. Having a lot of experience in Asian blepharoplasty is a plus.

A member asked:

My baby has itchy eyes and continues to rub them. Does this mean that she has allergies?

Maybe: Itchy eyes are a very common allergy sign. Infants can sometimes rub their eyes when they are tired as well. If you see other signs of allergy, such as sneezing, runny nose and tearing of the eyes, consult your doctor. If the whites of your baby's eyes become very red, or if there is a thick mucous discharge, call your pediatrician (this may be a sign of infection).

Peristomal wound: When i see a patient who has difficulties with peristomal wound or pain, i generally try to ascertain cause. Usually, if there is no underlying pathology, the skin is irritated by the adhesive. Using a hydrocolloid dressing beneath the adhesive may reduce the difficulties.
