I have a hemi Retinol occlusion. I do not want to have injections. Can I take any medication for it. Can the eye repair itself?
Several things:: There is no medication for hemiretinal occlusion (stroke). The spontaneous recovery is at the edges of the damaged area but the central area where the blood supply was cut off will loss function. Injections are to prevent abnormal vessels from growing which can threaten the rest of the retina. Before the injections there was no realistic treatment. It is your choice to decline them or not. ...Read more

I have macular edema. I got an injection a month ago. I was better for a week. Now I am not ok. Can I use eye drops to cure macular edema?
No eye drops: Macular edema is due to leakage of blood vessels surrounding the central retina - the macula. No current eye drops can affect this although extensive laboratory research is being done to develop such an eyedrop. You need to return to your retina surgeon to have the edema re-evaluated and further injection be done if required. ...Read more

Many reason: It sounds like you had cataract surgery, laser Yag capsulatomy, steroid injection and blepharoplasty.

Yes and no? Maybe mo: Any muscle which loses its innervation (which occurs with botox) may suddenly begin to twitch or fasciculate. Generally this subsides over a few days. However any imbalance in muscle action can also cause this and Botox is indicated for the medical treatment of blepharospasm (eye twitching). Therefore more botolinummay be the answer. Juvederm is not likely to cause eye twitching. ...Read more

Botox type injections into static frown lines caused major droopy eye lids. I suppose that ultherapy or peleve would do the same for my whole face?
Options to treat: Lid ptosis from Botox A occurs when the botox crosses the tarsal plate in the upper lid and inhibits the lid lifting muscles or because you are using your forehead muscles to lift the lids and Botox reduces the lift. Ulthera and Peleve can be used to lift lids. Topical treatments are available. I would revisit whoever did the Botox for treatment of the lid ptosis. Or get a second opinion. ...Read more

Different causes: Botox produces paralysis in any muscle injected. Beside the direct effect on the upper eyelid muscle that can produce a temporary droop, in many cases when Botox is injected in the forehead area to smooth down the wrinkles, it can produce a droop of eyebrow and consequently a droop of the eyelid skin. You should use a reputable surgeon with experience with Botox to avoid most side effects. ...Read more
Facelift options: I have noticed so many people with droopy eye lids and few forehead creases after facial injections. Is this supposed to happen?
No: Botox is used to prevent muscles from contracting and thus smooth out facial lines, especially in the forehead, between the eyes (to reduce the look from frowning). Eyelid droop can occur if the medication is injected too close to the eyebrow on the forehead. The droop is self limiting but of course is annoying. ...Read more
