I'm just wondering, if you're blind can you get surgery to be able to see again?

I'm just wondering, if you're blind can you get surgery to be able to see again?

Depends on cause: Some causes of "blindness" are treatable. One of the most common causes of worldwide "blindness" is the simple need for a glasses correction. Cataract can always be treated to restore vision no matter how severe, unless there are other additional eye problems. Some retinal and corneal causes of blindness can also be helped medically or surgically. An ophthalmic exam is needed to know for sure. ...Read more

Iol had shifted and has been corrected. How long will it take to see clearly after surgery.?

Depends: Iol corrective surgery is designed to prevent further decay in your vision. It will not restore vision that is lost. If you saw clearly prior to surgery, or saw at a given level, then you can expect the vision to return to those levels when the pressure gets close to the end-point aimed for by your glaucoma surgeon. This can be several days to several weeks in most cases. ...Read more

Stress fx 3rd met.- not healed after 9 mths (ORIF, BG 4 mths ago). Still swells, some pain and redness. Seeing dr 4 weeks- another surgery necessary?

Non-union: We are not sure why they occur so we cannot predict how they will heal. Sorry. I, too, am a runner. Magnetic induction may help. You are not obese. Get a DEXA scan and try Rx for that if positive. If everything fails try use in a more supportive foot wear. We runners know "It's only pain." Be sure your doc is an orthopedist. Aussie docs are better trained thanAussie podiatrists. Luck. ...Read more

I had a scleral buckling surgery about 4 months ago but see little improvement; what should the end result be?

I had a scleral buckling surgery about 4 months ago but see little improvement; what should the end result be?

It varies.: It depends on whether your macula, the central portion of your retina where we obtain our most precise vision, was originally detached at the time of your procedure and how long it was detached prior to the surgery. If your macula was attached prior to your surgery, your vision generally recovers more quickly. If your macula was detached at the initial procedure, your vision may not recover fully. ...Read more

What do you suggest if my psa has risin from 0 to 6.2 in 5 yrs after having radical surgery. What symptoms will I see?

Re-staging: The PSA should be zero after surgery. A rise in PSA should prompt re-staging to look for signs of local and /or distant recurrence. Symtpoms may not be present until a large enough mass forms in one location to cause a problem. Symptoms will depend on the location of the recurrence. ...Read more

I had arrhroscopic surgery on my knwe aug. 9 still hurts bad. Dr. Said it I shoud been better a long rime ago. Should I see anorhwr ortho dr.?

Possibly: Before getting a second opinion, I think it is best to follow up with your current doc. You may need additional testing in the way of an xray or mri. You may need further treatment in the way of an injection or additional surgery. Give your current doc a chance to make it right. If they can't give you a satisfactory answer/treatment, then see another ortho. ...Read more

Are you able to see what's happening during cataract surgery?

Are you able to see what's happening during cataract surgery?

Depends on anestheia: If eye drop anestheia (topical) is used without an injection, you will see lights but not specific details of the surgery. If an injected block of anesthetic is used (retrobulbar, peribulbar block), you might not see anything at all because the optic nerve itself might be affected by the anesthetic. I use topical and people are not bothered by what they see. ...Read more

After contract surgery my bf is not able to see properly. What did the doctor do wrong?

After contract surgery my bf is not able to see properly. What did the doctor do wrong?

Various causes: Cataract surgery takes some time to heal but the results usually are good in the long run. Some eyes have defects in the back hidden by the cataract and these can be finally detected after cataract surgery. This surgery is not perfect and there can be complications. Your bf should discuss this with his surgeon and could get a second opinion if the answer is not satisfactory. ...Read more

Can cryo surgery (they see some infection so suggested crysurgery before the frozen et) and FET happen in same cycle?

Unclear question: I think you are asking if cryosurgery could affect the success of ivf. There is no clear data on that but the answer is probably. Generally it is more typical to handle a medical problem first and then try ivf. Since you already did it just wait and take a pregnancy test at the appropriate time. Good luck. ...Read more

I did the prk surgery 2 weeks ago, I used to see by glasses better than now, how long will it take me to see as I used to see with glasses?

I did the prk surgery 2 weeks ago, I used to see by glasses better than now, how long will it take me to see as I used to see with glasses?

Not to worry!: Prk, unlike lasik has a much more slow return of vision, but ultimately the visual outcome should be the same. Even though the surface layer that is removed in prk (epithelium) has grown back at the 2 week mark, it can take weeks or months to "normalize". At the 3 month mark, if the vision is still not satisfactory, the decision to "fine tune", or enhance the vision will be made. ...Read more

I had lasik surgery week ago till now I can't see 100% thers a problem in focusing its hard to drive how much time will it take to perfect vision?

Vision can fluctuate: Vision can fluctuate for up to a month after lasik. In addition to dry eyes, I have seen lasik patients that have undiagnosed lid margin disease, which can also affect vision. Your lasik surgeon will be able to help if you have other conditions or dry eyes. For now, be patient and use prescribed drops and artificial tears. ...Read more
