What Homeopathic Remedy Is Recommended For Eye Surgery
Healing from surgery: Homeopathic remedies can help healing after surgery. For instance, the remedy aconite is known as "the arnica of the eye." arnica is a commonly used homeopathic remedy for bruising and pain related to trauma, so here aconite is being compared to this for eye wounds and foreign bodies. There are many more remedies which could facilitate healing, depending on the type of surgery being done. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had eye surgery done 6 weeks ago. The incision is great but it burns and my eyes stay red. Any remedies. ?
Blepharoplasty?: I am guessing you had eyelid surgery. The following refers to that (as incisions on the eye generally cannot be seen). If so you had some skin removed and the upper lid elevated. This opens the eye a little more and alters the tear distribution. The redness is from dryness. Get some over the counter lubricating drops and use them regularly until the eye surface adapts. ...Read more

Monovision: Monovision is the term for one eye corrected for distance (it may be natural as in your case) and one eye corrected for near which allows for reasonable vision at all distances to compensate for older age sight (presbyopia). When I do this, i insist that my patients mimic this with contact lenses for a couple of weeks to see if it works for them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
18 and older: Lasik is fda-approved for those 18 and older. More importantly, surgery is held off until there is no appreciable change in your prescription from year to year. Cataract surgery can be done at any age, and refractive lens surgery is similar to lasik - usually reserved for those over the age of 18. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes: 21 is an acceptable age to have laser eye surgery, so long as your eye glass or contact lens prescription has remained stable. You need a pre-operative evaluation by an experienced refractive surgeon to make sure your eyes meet the standards to make you a good candidate. Most lasik surgeons do not charge for the initial examination. ...Read more
My 5 y/o niece is very shortsighted with 1 eye worse than the other + astigmatism on both. Should she have eye surgery now or wait until she's older?
Confusing question: The primary treatment of unequal eye power is through glasses, not surgery. If the child is developing amblyopia, (vision loss in the weaker eye), glasses and/or patching would still be the 1st effort. If the eyes did not line up correctly, patching might help first, but delicate eye muscle surgery may be needed. ...Read more
PRK surgery?: I am guessing you mean prk surgery - which is a form of laser refractive surgery (he other being lasik). Prk produces good long term results with good stability. It is a little more uncomfortable in the beginning for a week or less. It is useful for certain patients with thinner corneas and to remove corneal scars. Discuss the optimum for you with your ophthalmologist. ...Read more
