Peripheral Vision (Definition)

When you look at someone's face, you can still see their hand, even though you are not looking directly at it. When you are walking through a doorway, you are not looking at the sides, or looking directly at the threshold, but you see it through your peripheral vision. Anything outside of your direct focus spot, is considered peripheral. Which can be measured ...Read more

Damage to optic nerve is 30 percent. With treatment how likely is it that in the future i will notice loss of peripheral vision in my sight?

Damage to optic nerve is 30 percent. With treatment how likely is it that in the future i will notice loss of peripheral vision in my sight?

Depends on cause: If you have a progressive disorder, which eludes treatment success, there is risk of added loss, but if this was an acute event, unlikely that you will experience peripheral involvement in near future. Talk to an ophthalmologist and get better informed of cause, future prognosis, and efficacy of various treatment.S. ...Read more

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

Will an eye lift procedure make a big difference in the elasticity of the skin around my eyes? I have finally accepted the fact that a surgical procedure is the only way to correct the effects of age and sun damage on my eyes. Will an eye lift improve som

Eyelid : Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, doesn't really change the elasticity of the eyelid skin itself. It can involve removing excess skin and repositioning or removing excess eyelid fat. To change the skin itself topical medications and/or resurfacing may be options. ...Read more

Is there a way of preventing a brain tumor after years of heavy mobile phone use or will the damage already be done ?

Is there a way of preventing a brain tumor after years of heavy mobile phone use or will the damage already be done ?

No proven danger: There is no convincing scientific evidence to suggest that cell phone use, heavy or otherwise, causes brain tumors. This has been looked at in several major studies, and there is neither a plausible mechanism nor clinical evidence of a connection. Don't worry about this. ...Read more

As long as glaucoma is caught early and treated early the majority of patients do well. Unfortunately there is no 'cure' for glaucoma but it is a manageable condition. Damage from glaucoma is not reversible, the goal of treatment is to prevent further vision loss. ...Read more

Is there a way to reverse vision loss without surgery?

Is there a way to reverse vision loss without surgery?

Not likely: Vision loss implies a decrease in the eye's ability to record an image and/or send the image to the brain. Most causes of vision loss require medical or surgical treatment, or both. One of the few causes of vision loss that can be reversed without surgery is refractive amblyopia (lazy eye due to an uncorrected need fro glasses). If treated at a young age, it can be nonsurgically reversed. ...Read more

Is there a way of preventing a brain tumor after years of heavy mobile phone use or will the damage already be done?

Unclear: Most of the studies linking cell phone use with brain tumors are poor studies and the current stand of both neurosurgery associations is that there is not enough data to suggest there is a link between cell phone use and brain tumor. If there is such a link, then decreasing your use may improve your chances but again, i suspect there is not direct causative link between cell phone use and tumors. ...Read more
