Ck w/ur eye surgeon: It is wise to speak to your cataract surgeon about this. They usually use very light weight lid speculum, the injection for anesthesia to keep your eye from moving around during surgery is deeper, and usually never causes deep eye pain, but s/he needs to be made aware of this, especially if you might have had any interoperative issues with your surgery. It may be even unrelated like sinuses too.

My daughter recently had acquired periorbital cellulutus while in her daycare setting. Is there any way to detrrmine what the specific cause was?

My daughter recently had acquired periorbital cellulutus while in her daycare setting. Is there any way to detrrmine what the specific cause was?

Probably not.: Periorbital cellulitis is an infection of the tissues around the eye, and can start with a break in the skin (even a bug bite), or spread from infection of nearby tissues (impetigo, stye, conjunctivitis), from a sinus infection or even through the bloodstream. A wide variety of bacteria can cause this, and antibiotic treatment is needed, sometimes by iv. I hope she feels better soon!
