Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

Depending on how strong the adhesion is, it might be able to be broken free and then, by keeping it broken free constantly until it heals up again, you can get rid of the adhesion.

Dr. Rick :

Another thing that could be tried is another surgery to remove the adhesion with the placement of a graft. This might work.

Dr. Rick :

If that doesn't work then you might consider having the adhesion excised again and then treated with mitomycin C to prevent another adhesion....this is kinda risky though.....

Dr. Rick :

The best thing to do, if you haven't done it by now, is to consult with an oculoplastic surgeon.

Dr. Rick :

Does this make sense to you?

I have been to if it it is graphed it will be rectified but I am a bit scared that another operation would be detrimental to the eye?
Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 5 years ago.
I don't blame you for being afraid. Even though I've not seen your adhesion I really think that an oculoplastic surgeon can safely repair the adhesion without damaging your eyeball.

The adhesion could, in time, cause problems with dryness, exposure etc, depending on the morphology and the amount of distortion to your eyelid.
