I want to do laser treatment for my eyes, I want to know is that treatment useful and safe.

I want to do laser treatment for my eyes, I want to know is that treatment useful and safe.
Operations done to remove the refractive error (power) of the eyes are known as refractive surgery. There are certain basic criteria that most patients need to fulfill before they can safely undergo refractive surgery. To enumerate, they are: (1) stability of refraction: the power of the eyes should have become stable for a period of 1.5 years minimum without any change. (2) curvature of the cornea should be tested by a technique which is known as topography. (3) thickness of the cornea should be measured by a test known as pachymetry. The minimum thickness required is 550 microns. (4) dilated retina evaluation: this is one of the most important tests that should be performed by a trained retina specialist. This test helps in detection of any offensive lesion on the central or peripheral retina. In case of any retinal abnormality, these should be treated before undergoing the surgery for number reduction. (5) there should be no pre-existent corneal abnormality. (example: corneal scar, opacity, defect, etc.) another important suggestion is that whenever you go for the assessment (the above mentioned tests), you should discontinue the use of contact lenses at least 4 weeks prior to the assessment. The reason for this being that use of contact lens temporarily alters the contour of the cornea. It takes around 3-4 weeks for the restoration of the original corneal contour after removal of the contact lens. Another important point is that you, as a patient, should be compliant to put post operative medication in your eyes for at least 2 months. There is bound to be some discomfort, watering, foreign body sensation, pain after the surgery in most cases-you should be ready to tolerate that. A leave from work for 7-10 days after the surgery should be generally sufficient. Last but not the least, you should set realistic expectations from this surgery. Though extremely rare, there is a remote possibility that the surgery may need to be repeated. Also, the need for subsequent treatment for the eye may be required. Thus, you should be compliant enough to trust and follow your eye specialist.

I was punched the other day between the eyebrows. Forehead partly. Now I have badly swollen eyes. I think my sinuses may have been damaged. I always have clogged nose. What should I do?

It is diffused blood from forehead area, wait for 10-12 days for complete resolution may take little longer. If want to verify bony # or doubt exists then investigate with CT scan / Plain X-ray orbital region/ MRI. You can even apply Ice fomentation to the affected area.

Eye redness is most often due to swollen or dilated blood vessels. This makes the surface of the eye look red. There are many causes of a red eye or eyes like infection, allergy. Foreign body in eyes. Some are medical emergencies and some are a cause for concern, but not an emergency. Others are nothing to worry about. Consult your local eye specilist to see what is the cause.

Redness can be commonly due to allergy or infection, you need to visit nearby eye surgeon to check that. Also get your glass power checked. Take frequent breaks while studying and dip a handkerchief in cold water and keep it over closed eyes for 2 minutes during breaks, you will feel better.

Keratoconus is progressive eye disease in which round cornea thins& begin to bulge into a cone like shape. This cone deflects the light as it enters the eye causing distorted vision. It may occur inone or both eyes & usually begins in growing age.   Research suggests the weakness of the corneal tissue leading to keratoconus, may be due to imbalance in enzyme within cornea making it susceptible for free radical causing it weaken& bulge forward.In mild  keratoconus, soft contact lens may help.  Treatment for progressive  keratoconus may include corneal cross-linking, custom soft  contact lens, permeable contact lens, scleral or semiscleral lens, corneal  transplant, piggyback contact lens, corneal collagen cross-linking non-invasive procedure using topical application of vit B2 & ultra violet light to strengthen chemical bond in cornea effectively stabilising the eyes of children with keratoconus. Last remedy to be considered is penetrating keratoplasty. In.

See viral conjuctivitis is in the air right now. It is very much possible you might have acquired infection in both your eyes. You need a slit lamp examination.
