Is it possible to completely roll your eyes?

Is it possible to completely roll your eyes?

No: The eye is not a simple ball; it actually has a long tail (the optic nerve) that tightly attaches it to the brain, as well as 6 muscles that limit movement. These together prevent the eye from rolling more than a cuple of inches in any direction. ...Read more

Can artefill be used to treat all the wrinkles on my face? I have crows' feet around my eyes and deep laugh lines that go from my nose to the corners of my lips. I wanted to get artefill injections because I heard that they are one of the longest-lasting

Can artefill be used to treat all the wrinkles on my face? I have crows' feet around my eyes and deep laugh lines that go from my nose to the corners of my lips. I wanted to get artefill injections because I heard that they are one of the longest-lasting

I: I agree with the previous answer, artefill is a long lasting filler that is best reserved for deeper type wrinkles or concavities in the face like the nasolabial folds (the lines running form the side of the nose to the side of the mouth. Artefill is used off label however for the depression under the eye (tear trough deformity) very judiciously and conservatively and less frequently for any superficial lines. It is best to keep in mind that with artefill, it is exceedingly difficult to treat lumps and bumps that may occur as side effect any filler treatment (rare) as opposed to reversible fillers like juvederm.
Nromally the crow's feet on the horizontal and oblique lines that jut out on the sides of the eyes are indeed treatable with Botox as that is the most effective treatment.
In general, many of the lines you can create by moving your face in any type of expression are treatable with Botox - ask your cosmetic surgeon more about the types of treatments that are appropriate for each complaint you may have. ...Read more

Run for the hills: This stuff is basically plexiglass injection. There are better options that are safer. In my practice I would never treat a patient I knew had artefill. It has polymethylmethacrylate (pmma) which is basically plexiglass. Run for the hills. ...Read more

In one corner of my eye, it's started to get red/pink a couple days ago. And it's gotten very itchy recently. Is it pink eye or something else?

In one corner of my eye, it's started to get red/pink a couple days ago. And it's gotten very itchy recently. Is it pink eye or something else?

This sounds like: inflammation of the eye, but not bacterial conjunctivitis (pink eye). It may be an allergy, irritation or virus. I would recommend that you have it checked by your primary care doctor, especially if it becomes painful, redder or there is pus draining. ...Read more

Is it normal to get a pressure headache in the same spot every time I get one? Right corner of my left eye and top of my left ear?

If only one of my eyes is blurry, do I need to get glasses?

If only one of my eyes is blurry, do I need to get glasses?

Consider this: Your brain will decide whether your one eye blurriness is a problem. It can decide to ignore the input from one eye, to have a clear image. If it does so over a long period of time (years) the brain can turn off most of the information coming from that eye. The visual loss is called amblyopia (lazy eye). Only a good eye exam and consultation with your eye doc can decide this for you. ...Read more

A few weeks ago my eyes have been acting weird. They seem to focus so much on one thing that it hurts my head. This only occurs when I am in a hot room that is very bright. What is happening to my eyes and should I get them checked?

Sauna photophobia?!: "Hot room that is very bright"?! Where is this? Sounds like a sauna w heat lamps. Probably a natural eye protective mechanism while you're in a noxious environment. More details please or a pic of ths "hot very bright" locale. Sounds strange - a live checkup is warranted. Our creator only gave us one pair. No "screw-in eye spares" available! ;) ...Read more

Cluster headaches: Headaches reoccurring behind one eye with tearing are often what we call cluster headaches. They often occur around the same time of day and can be severe. Over-the-counter pain medications typically have no effect on the pain from a cluster headache. Oxygen and tryptans are treatments. Please see your specialist eye md (ophthalmologist) and a neurologist.
Good luck. ...Read more

One of my eyes get blurry. A silver like blindness and afterward a headache?

Occipital migraine: Seems typical for an occipital (or visual) migraine. In this condition 1/2 of the visual field of each eye is affected (not one eye alone). The next time this happens cover one eye and then the other and you should notice it in both eyes. These are usually infrequent, benign, and short lived. Headache is not common but can occur. Check with a neuro-ophthalmologist if persistent. ...Read more
