Did I permanantly damage my eye by looking into a laser scanner at tj maxx?

Did I permanantly damage my eye by looking into a laser scanner at tj maxx?

Not likely: First, did you lose any vision that you are aware of? If not, then don't worry. Second, the lasers that are used in store check-out registers are of a low level. These are unlikely to cuase damage. Prolonged exposure to laser light of certain wavelengths has been shown to cause damage, but it would have to be intentional. You may want to avoid testing this out, though! ...Read more

See your eye doctor: If the red light was a laser pointer and you stared at it for milliseconds, you might be okay if it was properly labeled in 3-5 mW, it's the nonlabeled ones (green lasers) that are problematic, but this may be a good time for you to visit your eye doctor anyway to have your annual dilated exam done too, and have them check.

Is there any way I can get laser eye correction at 16?

Is there any way I can get laser eye correction at 16?

Serious needs: Lasik is generally not done until about 23 years of age or more due to progression of myopia below that age. A few cases are done for extreme needs, usually widely variant refraction in one eye only, or some with ocular surface disease that the last is being used for correction. Otherwise, you probably should wait until the usual milestones. ...Read more

LASIK after cataract: At the age of 79, I assume that you have had cataract surgery. If not, I suggest that should be first as the power of the implant can reduce or eliminate your need for glasses. If you have had cataract surgery, lasik or prk may be a good option. Most of the lasers available do a good job. My suggestion is to find a reputable surgery. ...Read more

Eye sheilds for laser is covering the area where there is fine lines - under the lash lines. Alternate options?

Scleral shells: There are shields that go directly on the eyeball underneath the eyelids called scleral shells. Your eyes have to be numbed with eye drops. Then a protective gel is placed in the shell, your eyelids are pulled back, and the shell is placed on your eye. Shells are often used during plastic surgery of the eyelids in order to protect the globe (eyeball).
Good luck with your procedure! ...Read more

Laser etc KillsCells: Beware of short term versus long term issues. The easiest, thus most widely done treatments, kill cells.

I had mico laser done on face 1 year ago and have pih lines under my eyes that have not resolved. Besides hq or lytera what are my options?

IPL isn't always: Safe. Need a second opinion from a qualified laser doctor. This is a difficult area to treat, especially since pih can be permanent. Ipl can overheat tissues, because its heat dispersion stays in the tissues (skin) longer, it can be dangerous with a person, who has rosacea.In your case, laser can't be used that close to the eyes or it'll overheat the orbital fat.

Hi. I did laser for my eyes (extra lasic) before 10 days. In forth days, sold became insid my eyes, then I washed them by water, it's ok not.

Postop LASIK: It is best not to rub or touch the eyes for the first week after lasik. Additionally, the eyes are at potential risk for infection for the first two weeks. By 10 days, it should be ok to wash your eyes out, but better to just wash the outsides. Use tear drops if the eyes are uncomfortable.

Yes dr. But my brother has keratoconus & despite my eyes being normal dr said me I can have a slight risk of developing keratoconus after my laser if happend then there vl be CxL surgery. Does this really happens?

Yes dr. But my brother has keratoconus & despite my eyes being normal dr said me I can have a slight risk of developing keratoconus after my laser if happend then there vl be CxL surgery. Does this really happens?

Risk: Refractive surgery typically works by thinning the cornea. If the cornea is too thin, refractive surgery may thin it to levels that make it problematic. The ranges are variable and depend on the measurements specific to your eyes. But in general, the risk of corneal ectasia exists after any surgery that thins the cornea. There are many solutions to this scenario that can be explored if needed. ...Read more

Which laser can completely remove fine lines under the eyes?

None of them: There are several lasers which can help with fine lines, but none that I know of which can guaranteed remove completely all fine lines under the eyes. For less down-time, the fraxel laser is good but may not have a good results as a co2 laser. Discuss your concerns with your cosmetic surgeon and ask to see typical results on his/her patients. ...Read more

Hi docs, is it true that presentation laser pointers are slowly damaging to your eyes?

Do not point at eye: It is never safe to point laser lights directly at the eye. Reflections off mirrors or magnified by binoculars or the like can amplify the light signal and become more dangerous. Injury CAN occur base on exposure time and power. There is no evidence that the proper use of presentation lasers pointing at lecture material would be harmful to the eyes. ...Read more

What does laser for retinal tears essentially do to my eyes? Wouldn't it cause damage to my eyes?

What does laser for retinal tears essentially do to my eyes? Wouldn't it cause damage to my eyes?

Spot welding: Laser for retinal tears essentially 'spot welds' the tear in the retina so that seals and prevents a retinal detachment from occurring. Some retina is damaged in the process, but given the reduction of risk of retinal detachment, on balance it is a good tradeoff. Typically, retinal tears occur in the peripheral retina and the effects of laser treatment aren't noticeable. ...Read more

IPhones and Eyes: The power of a laser can cause damage if it shines into your eye.

The latter may improve with oral decongestants or inhaled nasal steroids. Hydroquinone, applied topically may lighten the dark circles from pigmentation. Chemical peels may also help, but may also provide no help. Go see a dermatologist who provides laser treatments and skin care produc. ...Read more
