Why can't I get Juvederm to fill in eye hollows? I like the results I've gotten with Juvederm for the lines around my nose and lips. So I wanted to try it to fill in the spaces under my eyes, but my dermatologist says she doesn't like to use fillers for e

Expert area

Lips
Eye hollows, also called tear troughs, are a more difficult area to inject. The tissue is thin and unforgiving. Lumps and bumps are more likely. Chances of complications are higher. So, not all injectors treat that area. Seek out someone with significant experience.

If my eyes are dry, should I put my contacts in eye drop solution?

Drops to the eye

Putting a contact in the drops does not help but using eye drops 4-5x per day may help with your dry eyes. Please make sure to get contact lenses for dry eyes that has a better water solubility and permeability to oxygen. Please drink more fluid, if you have allergy treat it or avoid the allergen, eye lid hygiene and omega 3 also helps with dry eyes.

I hate having to put in eye drops. Is there an alternate solution to lubricate my eyes permanently?

Maybe

Eyes
You may want to try some of the artificial tear gels, some other alternatives are punctual plugs or lacricerts. A review of your medications may reveal use of antihistamines, anticolinergics or diuretics. Oral supplements of Omega fatty acids are available specifically for dry eye.

Please explain the best way to use eye drops for glaucoma. Leave eyes shut for 2 minutes putting drop in eye?

Can see videos

Head-eye
online. but best way is whatever gets a single drop into the eye (cul-de-sac or lid lake without touching the bottle to the lid or contaminating tip) without missing the eye either, followed by keeping the eye closed or covering the tear duct for a minute or two to keep the medicine from exiting the lacrimal tear drain. use the medicine regularly and at correct intervals within reason.

I noticed a floater now spider dots as well in eye, im 26 could it be sumthin wrong with my system & not my eye?? also dark nerve vains in my eyes

Flashes Floaters ...

New floaters and flashes are good reason to undergo a dilated retinal exam which can pinpoint tears in the retina which could lead to retinal detachment. Dark veins are not related to the floaters but sometimes occur with age.

Feeling like eye floater & mild burning in eye. It gets better when I wash eyes with cold water. Is this inflammation, Allergy, infect, or floater.

Burning vs itchiness

Floaters
Burning is usually due to drying out of the tear film (ie, dry eye, meibomian gland dysfunction, chemical exposure); allergies usually cause itchiness. Viral infections usually cause severe itchiness; bacterial infections cause severe yellowish/green discharge. Floaters are the black objects many see when looking at a white background. If in doubt, see your eyeMD. eyedoc2020.blogspot.com may help.
