Torn retina laser surgery recovery my surgery was yesterday should I still have large floaters today?
Torn retina laser surgery recovery should I still have large floaters day after laser surgery for torn retina?
There could be none.: There may be no possible consequences if your head movement was when the laser had not been "fired". If you moved during application of the laser you will have a loss of vision where the laser treatment occurred. If the laser treatment was away from your best area of vision you may never notice the additional area of loss. It would be best to ask the doctor that performed the procedure. ...Read more
I've already got lasered on both eyes for tears a while ago and now I need more laser. What are the risks to laser surgery for retinal holes?
Small: Laser for retinal holes is almost always done on the peripheral portions of the retina where vision is usually minimal or absent. The effect is to seal off the holes so they do not lead to a retinal detachment. Sometimes this needs to be repeated if the initial treatment did not have the full effect. ...Read more
I had a laser surgery for a tear in my retina. They put gas bubbles in my eye to keep it steady, 4 weeks later I still cannot see? Help me please?
No: The bubble was emplaced to push the retina back in its proper position. The vision recovery depends mostly on the type and degree of detachment. If it is air, then your eye will absorb it. If it is a silicone based gas, then it will need removal at some time after the retina is stabilized. Discuss this with your retinal surgeon. ...Read more
Had retinal holes (age 23). laser surgery 8 months ago. Have habit of masturbating (daily).Can it cause retinal holes in future? Recently eye pain also
No relationship: Retinal holes are in effect thin stretched spots in the peripheral retina which can be a site of retinal detachment. Vigorous activity canSo break loose a preexisting hole, but is very unlikely to create one. My understanding of masturbation is that it is not that vigorous. I think you are safe from a risk here. ...Read more

Depends.: If the stone was completely fragmented and no ureteral stent was placed, recovery tends to be quick, 1-2 days. Some patients, despite this, can have a significant amount of pain or discomfort requiring pain medication. Residual stone disease, residual ureteral edema, ureteral stent pain, and urinary symptoms may persist and prolong recovery. ...Read more
Can be: Much depends on exactly what type of laser surgery is being performed and exactly what the aftercare is. For example, patients who are undergoing co2 laser surgery may have significant discomfort if the areas are left uncovered; this discomfort can be decreased if the treated areas are covered and away from contact with air. Your physician will be able to provide you with more precise answers. ...Read more

Better drainage: Intraocular pressure results from the aqueous fluid being prodeuced in the eye and being drained out of the eye. Just as a sink can back up from poor drainage, so can the eye fluid, however, with no place to go the pressure increases. Glaucoma laser treatment (ALT/SLT) helps the fluid drain better, reducing pressure. ...Read more
Yes: Yes it works well in many glaucoma patients. There is four laser treatments that are used for glaucoma. Slt and alt used to lower the pressure by increasing the outflow drainage, ciliary body ablation will decrease the ciliary body which produces the fluid inside the eye (and treatment slows the production, lowering the pressure). Laser peripheral iridotomy prevents of treats angle closure. ...Read more
Effective: There are several types of laser surgery for glaucoma. The most popular is selective laser trabeculoplasty or SLT. This treatment is about as effective as the first-line drops for glaucoma. Generally, it is not used unless drops are not effective or are not tolerated. Generally, SLT is safe and effective about 85% of the time. ...Read more

TURP vs laser TUVP: Main differences occur with the surgeon's experience. Both procedures (mandated by insurers) must be scheduled/performed on an "outpt" basis, and may leave you with a Foley catheter for ~ 1 week. Reports suggest longer post-operative discomfort following laser tuvp. Also, no tissue is typically obtained for review with a laser procedure, unless the surgeon is performing a laser "resection.". ...Read more
Target: Nd:yag is a type of laser that targets primarily water. It is excellent for larger veins and can also be used for laser hair removal, skin tightening, acne and tattoos (when q-switched). Erbium:yag also primarily targets water but it vaporizes the skin and is used for laser skin resurfacing. Essentially it is the wavelength of light the laser produces that determines what it will work on. ...Read more
