Follow-up" I have graves ophthalmology. Is it possible for my eyes to return to normal(no bulging) without surgery? Mine is not that severe.

Follow-up" I have graves ophthalmology.  Is it possible for my eyes to return to normal(no bulging) without surgery? Mine is not that severe.

Observe for now: If your appearance is not severe and you don't have many symptoms as a result, surgery is probably not indicated. It may or may not get better with conservative treatment, but if you don't have symptoms which bother you greatly, you probably don't need surgery. That is, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." :) best wishes. ...Read more

Will using a full-time prism lens after horizontal strabismus surgery help or hinder the residual over-correction to move the eye closer to alignment?

Will using a full-time prism lens after horizontal strabismus surgery help or hinder the residual over-correction to move the eye closer to alignment?

Use travatan z to treat right eye for glaucoma. How would i apply travatan to base of left eye to grow eyelashes so the eyelashes in both eyes match?

Use travatan z to treat right eye for glaucoma. How would i apply travatan to base of left eye to grow eyelashes so the eyelashes in both eyes match?

Not recommended, but: Travatan and similar drugs that grow the lashes have side effects that can leave the lid skin hyperpigmented. For that reason, it is not recommended to apply it to your lower lashes. You may want to get a liquid eyeliner from the drug store, take the tiny brush out, wash it, & use it to brush the upper lashline with travatan nightly. Be sure to use as little as possible. Good luck! ...Read more
