I'm thinking of doing laser on my eyebrows. Being so close to the eyes will this possibly cause a seizure?

Unlikely: I am guessing that you have stroboscopic light induced seizures or something like that. If you have laser treatment for your brows, your eyes will be covered and protected so seizures will not be caused by the light. ...Read more

How to stop a child's eye from changing shape, to prevent his myopia from worsening?

Wish there was: Wish i knew, i'd be a millionaire. Theoretically, you could have him not look at near objects and always look to the distance. Studies have shown constant near vision may increase myopia. But it was a small study, so i'd take that with a grain of salt. But its not practical.

Would I have ongoing symptoms if sand that got in my eyes scratched the surface of the eyes?  Or the only way to tell is to get an eye exam?

It's possible : Sand has a lot of ground up minerals & rock, and who knows what else.

If by chance the sand has iron in it, a significant inflammatory reaction may result. So, an exam is important to elucidate. ...Read more
