Dr. A.S. Desai :

Hello, Welcome to Just Answer

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Are you available for chat now?

JACUSTOMER-g9vze360- :

yes, i'm available

Dr. A.S. Desai :

What was the nature of injury and is only left inner canthus burnt?

JACUSTOMER-g9vze360- :

i got burnt from the stove, something bursted in there, n i closed my eyes. i just got stucked on my inner canthus. and now its just a black spot there. i were glasses because i feel uncomfortable about it....yes only the left inner canthus

Dr. A.S. Desai :

The most likely cause for unequal canthi is formation of scar tissue ( from natural healing process).

JACUSTOMER-g9vze360- :

so, how can i get help. i no longer want to wear glasses as i'm hiding that, any help please

Dr. A.S. Desai :

If you want to get rid of the scar then it would require oculoplastic surgery by a oculoplastic surgeon.

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Oculoplasctic surgeon is an ophthalmologist with additional training in ocular plastic surgery.

JACUSTOMER-g9vze360- :

do we have any here in south africa, i'm in MPUMALANGA N wil do anything to remove that

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Do you wear glasses only to hide the scar or do you need glasses to see clearly?

JACUSTOMER-g9vze360- :

to hide actually, yes i'm myopic, but i can still do without glasses

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Just trying to find out if there are doctors available in your part of the country....

JACUSTOMER-g9vze360- :

o.k. i'l wait

JACUSTOMER-g9vze360- :

must i still wait, are you still there

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Sorry my search was not very fruitful .

Dr. A.S. Desai :

I could get the list of hospitals but finding a specialist was not possible.

JACUSTOMER-g9vze360- :

are they there in those hospitals?

Dr. A.S. Desai :

What I can suggest you to do is consult the nearest ophthalmologist who in turn would be able to guide you further to an oculoplastic surgeon.

JACUSTOMER-g9vze360- :

o.k. thanx...i will do so. is there no any medication that maybe i can use that can remove the dark spot slowly but surely

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Since you have mentioned unequal canthi, it points towards scarring which is why the need for corrective surgery.

JACUSTOMER-g9vze360- :

0.k. thank u

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Oops, sometimes the chat system just freezes! Thank you and best wishes
