I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. Exotropia is common and treatable, especially when diagnosed and corrected at a young age. By about 4 months of age, the eyes should be aligned and able to focus. If you notice misalignment after this point, have it checked out by an eye doctor. Let's connect over a call so that we can discuss your concern in details and make a suitable treatment plan for you.

I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. Osteomas are benign head tumors made of bone. They're usually found in the head or skull, but they can also be found in the neck. While osteomas are not cancerous, they can sometimes cause headaches, sinus infections, hearing issues or vision problems – however, many benign osteomas don't require treatment at all.

Osteoporosis & Osteomalacia - How Distinct Are They?

Osteoporosis & Osteomalacia - How Distinct Are They?

Osteoporosis:

Osteoporosis is a condition whereby the density of the bone decreases and the body ceases to manufacture the same quantity of bone as it did previously. Although it tends to affect both females as well as males, it is most commonly seen in women. The reason for this is the decreased production of estrogen during the menopause phase. The hormone, estrogen provides protection against osteoporosis.

When someone suffers from this condition, all their bones become weak and they become highly susceptible to fractures in the event of an accident or even a slight knock.

The word osteoporosis means porous bones. Once a person crosses the age of 35 years the rate of bone renewal or rebuilding slows down. When this happens on a prolonged basis the concerned person is highly prone to develop osteoporosis.

Key Points:

• Those who smoke and have a poor diet are more likely to suffer from osteoporosis.
• Osteoporosis targets areas of the body such as the hip, wrists and spine.
• Although there is no particular outward sign of osteoporosis you are likely to develop a stoop as a result of a weak spine. This will further lead to bone pain.

Osteomalacia:

Osteomalacia is a condition that is similar to osteoporosis where the bones are weakened. But what makes this condition different from osteoporosis is that in osteomalacia there is difficulty in the process of bone-building. In osteoporosis, existing bones become weak.

Reasons for Osteomalacia:

Osteomalacia occurs when there is vitamin D deficiency. As a nutrient, the benefits of vitamin D are enormous because it is instrumental for the absorption of calcium in the stomach.

Vitamin D is helpful for the maintenance of phosphate and calcium levels which is needed in the proper formation of bones. Vitamin D can be acquired from ultraviolet rays of the sun and also from food items such as fish and dairy products.

Signs of Osteomalacia:

Signs of osteomalacia are few. The most common signs include fracturing of the bones and weakening of the muscles. A person who suffers from the condition of osteomalacia has a difficult time walking and may develop abnormal gait.

Treatment of Both Osteoporosis and Osteomalacia:

When it comes to the treating osteoporosis it is mainly focussed on preventing the onset, maintaining healthy bone density, preventing fractures and reducing pain. This treatment is done by making adjustments to your lifestyle as we daily meal plan in addition to taking medications and health supplements.

As the first line of treatment of osteomalacia, the patient will be prescribed a number of phosphate, vitamin D and calcium health supplements. Additionally, the patient will be asked to spend some time out in the sun for the absorption of sunlight.

Osteomalacia - How To Get Rid Of It?

Osteomalacia - How To Get Rid Of It?

The weakening of the bones during the bone development or formation process is called Osteomalacia. Osteomalacia, when it occurs in children, is called Rickets. A lot of people confuse it with osteoporosis, which affects bones that have already been formed.

One’s bones need phosphorus and calcium to remain strong and healthy. However, the minerals get broken down by Vitamin D. Osteomalacia occurs when the body is lacking in Vitamin D, without which, bones become flexible and soft. The primary symptom of Osteomalacia is pain in the bones, generally experienced in the hips. The pain can also be felt in the arms, legs and the spine. As the disease progresses, the bones become weaker and the pain increases.

Causes of Osteomalacia
The primary cause behind Osteomalacia is the lack of Vitamin D. Vitamin D gets generated in the skin when it is exposed to the sun’s UV rays. Vitamin D can also be found in dairy products and fish. A lack of exposure to the sun and the absence of Vitamin D-rich foods from the diet may lead to Osteomalacia. However, even if you are getting enough sun and Vitamin D in your food, there are other ways in which Vitamin D deficiency can occur:

  1. Some forms of cancer inhibit the absorption of Vitamin D
  2. Celiac disease can damage the lining of the intestine, preventing the absorption of Vitamin D.
  3. Liver disorders
  4. Kidney disorders
  5. A lack of phosphate in the diet can also lead to Osteomalacia
  6. Some drugs that are used to treat seizures can also cause Osteomalacia

Treatment of Osteomalacia
The treatment of Osteomalacia, if the disease is diagnosed early, is fairly simple. You just need to increase your consumption of Vitamin D. Your doctor may ask you to take Vitamin D supplements, increase the intake of the vitamin in your diet in the form of milk products and fish. Getting just the right amount of exposure to the sun is also important in this regard. Getting Vitamin D injected into the body is another way to make up for the deficiency in this vitamin in the body.

Blepharoplasty - Who Can Opt It?

Blepharoplasty - Who Can Opt It?

Sagging eyebrows, baggy eyelids (both upper and lower eyelids) or under eye bags can be quite annoying and uncomfortable. Though mostly observed among aged people, the problem can equally affect people of other age groups. Left unattended for a long time, the sagging eyebrows or droopy eyelids can even interfere with one's vision, especially the peripheral vision. The Eye Lift or Blepharoplasty comes as a much-needed savior that can work wonders to deal with droopy eyelids and similar problems with efficiency and precision.

Who can undergo the Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty comes as the best option under the following situations

  • The droopy upper eyelids affecting the side or peripheral vision to a great extent.
  • The increased bagginess of the lower eyelids results in the appearance of wrinkles, making one look older than their age.
  • The appearance of under eye bags, especially in young adults.

The steps involved in Blepharoplasty

  • Before the surgery, a patient is given local anesthesia in the form of intravenous (IV) sedation to ease the pain and the discomfort.
  • Incisions are then made along the natural lines of the eyelid to remove the excess skin and the fats.
  • The surgeon then carefully makes minute stitches to close the incisions. This is mainly carried out in the case of upper eyelids.
  • For the lower eyelids, the procedure may be different depending on the type of incision.
    • In some case, the saggy and excess muscles, fats or skin may be excised through incisions made along the margins of the eyelash.
    • Alternately, the excess fats can also be removed through incisions made inside the lower eyelids. This may be followed by an Erbium Laser Resurfacing to take care of the fine lines (in both the cases).
  • The surgery, however, may not be as simple as it sounds. Make sure you opt for an experienced surgeon. Research on the matter well enough before you go for the surgery.
  • In most of the cases, sans any complications, the stitches are removed within a week or two.
  • Minor side-effects such as swelling, irritation, watery eyes, bruising, blurred vision, pain, the eyelids appearing numb may be observed.
  • However, consult your surgeon immediately in the case of excruciating pain, loss of vision, infection at the incision site, severe bleeding, difficulty in closing the eyes, dry eyes, to name a few.

Precautionary steps for a faster healing
The hourly use of cold compress or ice packs (for about 10-12 minutes) following the surgery can be of great help.

  • Avoid rubbing the eyes or wearing a contact lens for some days following the surgery.
  • Do not miss out on a single medicine or eyedrops advised by the doctor.
  • Smoking, strenuous and rigorous physical activities such as exercise, swimming or lifting of heavy objects should be avoided for at least a week or as advised by the surgeon.
  • Avoid direct contact with the sun or going outside the house without wearing dark glasses.
  • Practice good personal hygiene. Keep the eyelids clean but don't be harsh.

Blepharoplasty - Things You Should Be Aware Of!

Blepharoplasty is the surgery of the upper or lower eyelids. It is usually done for cosmetic purposes but can be done to correct any deformity around the eyes. Blepharoplasty is an operative method to improve the vision by removing the extra tissues, skin, fat, and muscles under or above the eyelids. With the elimination of the saggy eyelids, the eyes look more alert and younger. This surgery can be performed for many reasons such as to remove extra skin on the upper and lower eyelids that can cause poor or disturbed vision. It can also be done for droopy eyelids and to remove bags under the eyes.

Blepharoplasty is usually done with other surgeries like skin resurfacing, forehead or facelifts, and filler injections. Before one decides to go for the surgery, he/she should consult the surgeon about all the risk factors that are involved in it and should also be open to the doctor regarding one’s medical history and condition. There are a number of risks involved in Blepharoplasty such as reaction to anesthesia, dry eyes, blood clots, irritated eyes, skin discoloration, transitory blurred vision, loss of vision, bleeding, troubled shutting and opening of eyes, visible scars or markings, infection, and damaged eye muscles.

Procedure:

Before the surgery, there are a number of procedures that are needed to be followed. The surgeon or doctor should be well aware of the patient’s medical and surgical histories especially if there are any medical history and condition related to eyes and allergies. It is the patient’s responsibility to make the concerned medical team well aware about his/her expectations from the surgery before proceeding.

The patient will have to undergo some lab tests and examinations to help the doctor know the overall medical condition and the expected outcome and the expected risks of the surgery.

  1. The doctors will physically examine the patient which includes measurement of eyelids and tear production test.

  2. As the surgery is concerned with the eye area, eye tests will be performed that includes a vision test and other eye-related examinations.

  3. In these kinds of surgeries, the concerned part is photographed from various angles to help the surgeons plan the surgery and to know the instant and long-term outcomes.

Before the Surgery:

The patient should follow the instructions provided by the surgeon before the surgery. An individual should take into account some of the precautions before the surgery.

  1. Eliminate smoking weeks before the operation or surgery;

  2. Eliminate alcohol consumption weeks before the surgery;

  3. Eliminate medications or other supplements related to amplified bleeding such as aspirin, warfarin, and likewise;

  4. Consume medications prescribed by the doctor;

  5. Give maximum rest to the eyes;

  6. Avoid using electronics or devices that can affect eyes.

Take Away:

Blepharoplasty is a surgery used to improve the drooping eyes by removing the extra skin, tissue, fat, and muscles from the upper or lower eyelids. This surgery is usually done for the cosmetic purpose to make the eye look younger and alert but is also performed often on the senior citizens to help improve their vision. There are many risks involved in the surgery depending upon the medical history and conditions of the patient. One should not go for the surgery unless needed for medical purpose or suggested by the doctor as it makes the eyes more prone to infections and other problems.
