Eyes sensitive to light after laser surgery for glaucoma

Can eyes become sensitive to light after laser surgery for glaucoma? How long does the sensitivity last? Are there any other side effects from laser surgery to eyes? ## Any procedure carries the risk of causing side effects. The FDA includes light sensitivity among them, as well as eye pain, stinging, and tearing. Did your surgeon not provide you with any details on the possible side effects, or risks? Did they provide you with any special instructions for aftercare? Are you on any medications? Can you please post back with more details, so I can research this more for you? Thanks!

Taxim O 200 uses

Hi. I am a 24 year old girl. For the last two days I've felt pain in my left eye and swelling. My doctor prescribed me Taxim-O-200 and also tells me that if it happens next time you'll have to use power spect, but right now my eye sight is ok. Please tell me if everything will be ok with me? ## Hello, Sunny! How are you? This is an antibiotic that's used to treat various types of infections. But what type of doctor did you see for it? It's incorrect to assume that such a thing would have any effect on your eyesight, if it occurs again, because not all such afflictions do. Did they mention what caused it? ## Yesterday I went out of town and couldn't go to the washroom and couldn't drink water for 8 hours; and today this morning I'm experiencing a burning sensa...

Eylea injection

Has anyone experienced loss of smell and taste since getting injections? ## What did your retinal specialist say about the cause of loss of smell and taste? Were you on Lucentis or Avastin before the start of Eylea? ## I haven't been able to find any information that lists such symptoms as being known side effects of this medication, but it's very difficult to know how any drug will affect any given person that takes it.

Hello, my dad is 76 years old and two months ago an embolism occurred to his right eye. The upper half of the right eye lost the vision in curtain form.

After surgery, embolus arised again to the same eye and he lost the vision of this eye again. Subsequently, all controls and hyperbaric oxygen therapy were repeated.

Hi. When my partner got an sti they gave him doxytet capsules and now his vision is being affected. What might be the underlying problem? ## Hello, Nompilo! How are you? I'm sorry, but I don't quite understand what you mean.

List Of Eye Drops

Is there an over the counter eye drop that starts with T? ## Based on my research, I only came across two brands that started with a T. I can't say however, if these are the only one's on the market that begin with this letter: -"Tears" Naturale Free Lubricant Eye Drops, 60 Single-Use Vials -"TheraTears" Lubricant Eye Drops, Single-Use Containers TheraTears appears to be a common brand here in the U.S.; so I think it's a good match. Was there anything in particular that was special about this brand of eye drops you're looking for? ## I feels pain in eyeballs with tears. Eyes got reddish and iching. I spend lot of time in computer work. ## Anyone ever heard of eye drops with these names - Luzazone or Visiusmidriatic? I can't get the names right, but I ...

Can Latisse backfire?

I used Latisse successfully for several months & loved the look. But then my lashes started to fall out, leaving me with short stubby ones less full than when I began the latisse. Does anyone know if it stops working, or the body gets resistant to it, or have any of you had the same reaction? Thanks. ## Same thing happened to me - I am wondering if this is a bad batch of Latisse - how would one know until eyelashes stop growing or fall out? ## It is normal for your body to eventually get used to any type of medication you are using, even a topical one and it may stop working as well as it once did. The warnings in the product information also say that other changes in hair growth may occur and though it is rare, this could involve shorter or less lashes. Some drugs don't work at...

Inherent wide angle glaucoma at age 50

My (inherent) wide-angle glaucoma was diagnosed by a kind man, my Optician. His body language guarded, he searched for someone along with me, to break bad news, noting irreversible damage. I'd rapidly lost by failure to account for 30% of my adult vision. Being without all/any treatment for the Glaucoma for about twenty agonizing months. Indicating that I begin using Xalatan "one drop in each eye before bed daily." Adding "If I used more drops that it would not help my situation." I believe I disagree yet without power to convince. Factually; for whatever reason, I DO enjoy relief from pain, headache, visible swelling, (iop?) when that prescribed amount is readministered 8 or 12 hours again later (BID). I experienced marked relief; well, what and why the discussion? ...

shelf life of latisse?

How long can you have latisse before it stops being effective? If you don't open it and use it for a few months does the active ingredient(bimatoprost) stop working? Do you have to have fresh product? ## What is the expiration date provided on the packaging, or label? It is always best to stick with that, and not use it past that date, since it may lose effectiveness. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including dry eyes, darkening of the eyes, headache, and light sensitivity. Are there any other questions?

Rastasis eye drops

eye drops ## Is it possible for rastasis eye drops to cause the blood to thin so that clotting is difficult. My husband has been using these drops for about a week and a cut on his hand was still bleeding profusely the next morning.

How is he doing, now? Has there been any change?

Using Lumigan for glaucoma

Do other glaucoma patients run out of Lumigan much quicker than their other eye drops? ## Hello people. notice I am new to the privileges of using this Interweb. More to the point, I am also new to the awareness of and treatments for my "inherent wide-angle Glaucoma". The (use before bedtime eye-drops Latanoprost) was RX dispensed in a teensy container. One drop in each eye daily and ALWAYS empties 5-7 days after it is opened. This container ALWAYS shows 1-2 more applications remaining in the container which; so far, I can't get out. This container is $101.93. The label "claims" to hold 29 days of doses. This IS mathematically impossible by my understanding. This fact being ALSO supported by several lucid and perplexed medical professionals. I am relieved to read ano...

Terramicina vs Tobradex for stye on outer top side of eyelid

Hello. I am curious if Terramicina works at all or better on a stye than Tobramycin? ## Most do not require treatment, according to NIH reports, they will usually go away on their own, though it may take about a week, or so. As to using either of these medications, since they are not specifically formulated for optical use, thus, they might not be sterile and safe for use in your eye. According to the FDA that means they could worsen the issue, or cause additional infections. How are you doing? Has there been any change?

Terramicina - Does It Go In The Eye Or Around?

I have pink eye. Can I use terramicina in my eye as a salve, or just around the eye? ## I think it really depends on whether or not you have the ointment, powder or the eye drops. There should be instructions on the package, no? That's just wrong if there isn't, as from what I can tell it can be used to treat pink eye. Based on information i've gathered, the application guidelines are simple. Listed below are the indications for the ointment: "Broad-spectrum antibiotic ideal for mild bacterial eye infections Easy to use - simply apply ointment directly on the affected area" I'm assuming that the eye drops are no different other than actually dropping it into your eye. Here is an information link to the powdered form of this medication as well (it states: puff pow...
