Is there a surgical procedure that can correct amblyopia?

Is there a surgical procedure that can correct amblyopia?

Varies with duration: Ambliopia is the process where the brain ignores the "camera" picture from one eye because it is less clear or causes double vision. It can sometimes be improved if the weaker eye is strengthened (glasses), the stronger eye is patched or if the eye is lined up better with surgery. If the process has gone on too long, the brain ignores the fix & surgery is simply cosmetic. ...Read more

Is plastic surgery the only possible way to correct an asymmetrical epicanthal fold?

Is plastic surgery the only possible way to correct an asymmetrical epicanthal fold?

"Plastic Surgery": Is a blanket term that means different things to different people- especially plastic surgeons! if you have an asymmetric fold, we need to determine why. You need to see a plastic surgeon or an ophthammologist with experience with eyelid ptosis. They will need to assess if you have, and to what degree: eyelid ptosis (droop) and levator muscle dysfunction. With this they can make a DX and tx plan. ...Read more

Is there a surgery to correct a lazy eye?

Is there a surgery to correct a lazy eye?

Yes and no: Lazy eye, or amblyopia is a condition where the brain begins turning off one eye because the image is different/fuzzy. It may be improved by non-surgical means if the eyes line up correctly, but it often leads to cross eyes.

If a surgeon can realign the eyes surgically, is it possible the brain will fix residual problems between the two eyes? I'm looking at a 2nd surgery.

If a surgeon can realign the eyes surgically, is it possible the brain will fix residual problems between the two eyes?  I'm looking at a 2nd surgery.

Get 2nd opinion: If you've had strabismus surgery already, and there are still double vision uncorrected by glasses with prisms, then you need a second opinion before undergoing another surgery.In children, it's easier for the brain to self correct after strabismus surgery, more than adults. However, there's been some success with Botox used in kids in place of surgery. See if that's an option 4 u r not as a thot. ...Read more

I have significant astigmatism, is doing cataract surgery with a lens. Surgeon said the lens can only correct 10 to 25% astigmatism. Is it worthy?

I have significant astigmatism, is doing cataract surgery with a lens. Surgeon said the lens can only correct 10 to 25% astigmatism. Is it worthy?

High Astigmatism : I'd get a second opinion regarding this. If your astigmatism is so high that a toric IOL is only able to correct 10-25%, of you astigmatism, I'm wondering whether you have an underlying corneal degenerative condition, like keratoconus. An acrysof toric will correct a max of about 4 diopters. If what has been measured is 75% more or about 7 diopters oF astigmatism, it's not worth it in my opinion. ...Read more

Is surgery needed to fix a torn ACL or is there another way?

Is surgery needed to fix a torn ACL or is there another way?

Yes: Unfortunately, an acl cannot heal on its own. Once torn, the acl can scar back down, but cannot function like the original acl. Because of this, knees with persistent instability require acl reconstructions to restore function. Some patients can get by without acls if they limit all cutting and rotation activities through the knee. Others will have persistent impairment. ...Read more
