hello Dr. Rick

 

my left eye lens colour has become white and grey and always my cornea area are always in red, both the eye look so different. i'm wearing powerfull lens almost 10 number which i can see only big thing and we can get only from hospital, and as per doc information my eye will remain same.

what i really want is my eye look normal even i loss my vision. so what you can suggest me

Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 3 years ago.
Thanks for that extra information.

Let me explain what the doctor means when she says that she can do squint surgery but that after 6 months or so your squint will return.

Since you have such poor vision in your affected eye there is no stimulus for your brain to keep both eyes pointing in the same direction. In other words, your brain doesn't care where your, mostly blind, eye is pointing since it can't see well enough out it anyway.

Sure, the muscles can be moved to get your eyes to point in the same direction, but without the long-term help of your brain holding the eyes in position they will just drift apart again.

So. How can you look normal? The most aggressive thing to do, if you are blind in that eye (and I don't think you are...just really bad vision, correct?) is to remove the eye and get an artificial eye.

You could also get a cosmetic contact lens that fits on your globe and makes your eye look like it is pointing straight ahead when it is not.

Take home message? Your problem really is a tough nut to crack and has no easy solution. Sorry about that :(

The best place to go for a solution to your problem would be a University Teaching Hospital where a large group of super-sub specialists can all get together and approach your problem from a lot of different angles at once.

And, now, the obligatory word from our sponsors: :o)

Dr. Rick

 

thanks for your reply

 

2 weeks back i had a check up with my doc and they have advice me to do tatooing of cornea should i do that and do you know any doc or hospital in dubai which they can do cosmetic len surgery.

 

 

Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 3 years ago.
That is not a bad choice as long as you understand it can not be reversed.

I'm sorry, but corneal tattooing is a very specialized procedure and I don't know anyone in your area who would do that type of work. Your best bet for finding someone is to ask local ophthalmologists if they know anyone, ask the local ophthalmological society for a referral or check local internet listings.

Best of luck to you. Let me know how things turn out.
