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
Postal worker shined the red light laser scanner in my eye from 2 feet away. Looked at it for a few seconds. Any permanent damage to eyes or vision?
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.

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

There are many laser vision correction procedures, lasik/lasek/prk/intra-lasik etc. Which one is best for you is dependent on the physical attributes of your eyes, your profession, hobbies and visual goals.

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.

Eye sheilds for laser is covering the area where there is fine lines - under the lash lines. Alternate options?
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
Is eribum laser better than peels for fine lines under the eyes? And which method would get rid of the fine lines?
Laser etc KillsCells: Beware of short term versus long term issues. The easiest, thus most widely done treatments, kill cells. Laser is a way of applying heat (generated when the laser light is absorbed) to kill cells. Suggest focusing more on health than only short-term cosmetic sales which are likely to damage your long term health. Read more

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.
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.
