ER & eyelid surgeon: If an er is available, you should be seen there as you may have more extensive injuries, including a fractured eye socket, nose or facial bone. A ct scan may be ordered to assess your facial bones as well as check for any bleeding inside the head. An oculoplastic surgeon can then be called in to take care of your eyelid laceration. ...Read more
No!: Any cut may have foreign material that can causes an abcess or infection. Sealing it can increase these risks! If it is very superficial it should heal on its own. If it is deep it needs medical attention. ...Read more
I have a small cut on both eyelids that developed suddenly. They'll heal and then tear again- it's a vicious cycle. I don't know what this is about.?

Hi I've had the white part of my eye scratched slightly by our dog and have a slight cut just under my top eyelid what should I do?

Here's help: If the laceration is small (less than 1/2 inch) and if the eye is not involved or the lid margin, and you do not suspect infection, then you can treat it by cleaning it, and taping the edges together.

I've read about people using medical super glue to seal cuts, but would it be safe to do it on the eyelid?

I have a small hard lump on the inside of my bottom eyelid that looks almost like a cut. What is it?
What is the difference between endoscopic ptsosis surgery and surgery that cuts out the eyelid hooding tissue? Which one is least invasive?
This sounds bogus!: There is a difference between eyelid ptosis and excess eyelid skin. Some patients have both. An endoscope is neither needed nor an advantage--this is straightforward blepharoplasty with ptosis repair if needed. Any abps-certified plastic surgeon can do skillful blepharoplasty; most do ptosis repairs also. Ophthalmologists do ptosis repairs, but may have less cosmetic skills with blepharoplasty. ...Read more
I just noticed a cut on my 9 mo old eyelid. It happened with the babysotter so I don't know how. Its not bleeding. Can I put neosporin there?
Yes: Wash the area with soap and water, put neosporin on it, and make an appointment with an eye doctor. Eyelid cuts may be superficial and heal well, but if they are deep, they should be tended to promptly. If you are unsure how severe the cut is or if there is a lot of swelling and tenderness, go to an emergency room rather than wait a day. ...Read more

Will I have pain after Asian eyelid surgery? I know any surgery causes some pain, but Asian eyelid surgery sounds like a really small cut. Does that mean the pain will be "small" too? Will tylenol (acetaminophen) or Aleve be enough to treat it? .
Of course: The eye is well protected and many get facial cuts without the eye being involved. But sometimes sharp things can actually impact the eye and scratch the surface, cut partially into the outer coats or in the worse case, penetrate to the interior which causes major problems. If you suspect any of these an ophthalmologist should be consulted pronto. ...Read more

See your doctor if redness, swelling or drainage starts. ...Read more
Depends: If the cut is to the skin surrounding the eye, such as your eyelid, I would suggest keeping the area clean by washing with soap and water. Topical antiseptic cream may be used if cut is not too close to eye itself. If you have scratched the eye itself, refrain from contact wear (if you wear them) and have the eye examined if no better in 24hrs to assess for possible corneal abrasion. ...Read more
