A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing. It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more
Two images obvious?: Double vision occurs when someone who didn't previously, acquires a condition or injury resulting in two images (diplopia). The images can overlap, be stacked or be side by side. Closing one eye blocks one image. Lazy eye usually indicates a long term problem where the two eyes do not provide single, simultaneous vision. If from childhood, the weaker eye's image is often suppressed and not seen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends: Everything depends on the reason for blindness. If it is acquired cataract or other media opacity usually vision can be restored.

Post Cataract Surg: Yes, an intraocular lens (IOL) can still be placed into the eye even with an extensive loss of iris.

I heard that you can't get lasik surgery if you have a dot on the side of your eye. Is this true?
Depends: It depends on what you mean by a 'dot'. If you have a growth on your cornea called a pterygium, which is a medical problem, this could affect your ability to have lasik. Most eye surgeons would take care of that first before giving you the refractive surgery. If the dot is a pingueculum, or sun damaged conjunctiva, then that might not be a problem. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers

Work up?: An MRI can determine if a lesion in bone is an active process. Many times, sclerotic lesions in bones, or bone islands, are innocuous, and cause no problems. If there is pain associated with the lesion, then it may signal a more serious problem. Seek care or additional workup. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Amblyopia (lazy eye) develops when one eye is not used early in life. This is usually due to not using both eyes together due to eye position (ie. Crossed), or amount of eyeglass correction. If not caught early in life the brain does not make the proper connections to see well out of that eye. If the amblyopia is due to eye position eye muscle surgery at a young age may help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How can an ophthalmologist know that blurry vision out of one eye is undetected amplyopia and not a symptom of neurological/other underlying issue?
Is it something serious when you have a slight superior medial mensicus displacement? What usually is the treament for that? Does it require surgery?
Not necessarily: Surgery is always an option, but just depends on your symptoms. If you don't have significant swelling or pain, then conservative management is appropriate. If you have pain that impacts your daily activities, having the meniscus "fixed" (through an arthroscopy) is an option. "displacement" of a meniscus likely means that if you re-tweak your knee, you'll complete the tear. Good luck! ...Read more

Is it broken or fractured is a question I am often asked. The answer is basically that a broken or fractured bone is the same thing.
