Can injury lead to removal of the eye?

Can injury lead to removal of the eye?

Unfortunately yes!: Depending on severity of a closed, penetrating or perforating ocular injury, vision may not be recoverable. A blind, painful eye is removed for pain relief, cosmetic reasons or to protect the opposite eye, which as strange as it sounds can be lost to a condition called sympathetic ophthalmia, an inflammatory reaction to injury in the opposite eye! ocular prostheses look amazingly real nowadays! ...Read more

Should i put hair removal cream under my eye skin to remove the fine lines? As dermalogist said nothing is possible as lines are below the eye lash?

Irritating to eye: Hair removal cream is almost certainly going to cause a lot of irritation if it gets in the eye.

Now if you have abundant hair in wrong places (hirutism) which can be caused by systemic diseases(eg pcod, cushings, androgen secreting tumor, etc), you may have problems conceiving. If you had cataract removed, could have been caused by too much circulating cortisol. ...Read more

Silk'n flash & go hpl home laser hair removal device doesn't require eye protection, are my eyes really safe? What goggles can I get just to be sure?

Silk'n flash & go hpl home laser hair removal device doesn't require eye protection, are my eyes really safe? What goggles can I get just to be sure?

Just say N0!: This is not a laser. It is a flash lamp. The likelihood of it being able to generate enough energy to actually destroy the hair follicle is pretty low. And if it does you just don't want to flash it in your eyes. I'd say don't waste your money. There's a reason commercial units cost way more and must be purchased by physicians--they have enough power to work. ...Read more

I am a 62 yr old female  just has cataract removal & multifocal implants. my rt eye now dr says looks like it has adies tonic pupil. can it go away?

Post op dilation: If you have a true Adie's pupil, your pupil is dilated looking into distance and then when you focus at near for a while your pupil slowly gets smaller and will not redilate when you look back into distance. This gives night glare and makes reading very hard. It can get better as time goes on (1-2 years). It is not too unusual post surgery and may result from pressure spike. Not a true Adies pupil ...Read more

I had a retina tear that has been sealed with laser. But since, i bleed in the eye once about every month. Should i get vitreous removal operation ?

A possible issue: In some patients, the vitreous gel creates a retinal tear next to or right through a retinal blood vessel. Even if the tear is sealed well with laser, the gel still remains attached to the flap of the tear and the blood vessel. In some cases, persistent traction creates periodic hemorrhage. While this often decreases with time, surgery may be warranted if recurrent, severe, ; impacting daily life. ...Read more
