Dr. Susan : Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I am currently online and able to help answer your questions. Are you available to chat?
Dr. Susan : Hi- so the pupil is peaked at a specific area?
it is slightly enlarged
Dr. Susan : But round?
Dr. Susan : Or teardrop?
very slightly out of round
Dr. Susan : Well if it is that noticeable and it doesn't bother you too much- I would leave it alone
Dr. Susan : With every surgery you increase the risk of new problems
the glare is bothering me he said something a sweep does that soung familiar
Dr. Susan : Like an infection. You have been very lucky so far.
Dr. Susan : Ok- that is a different issue
what is a sweep?
Dr. Susan : A sweep implies that's small part of the pupil is stuck either in itself or other tissue. The surgeon will sweep it out and flatten it.
a risk of bleeding also?
Dr. Susan : That is quick and simple
is this a risky surgery with risk of bleeding in the iris?
Dr. Susan : Depend how tightly the tissues are attached
Dr. Susan : Should not be too much
what is this proceedure referred as?
Dr. Susan : Well every time you enter the eye there is risk of infection, bleeding, etc! It does not have one name but iris reconstruction or lysis of adhesions
Dr. Susan : Depends how involved the case turns out.
is it worth considering?
Dr. Susan : Of course! It's simple and you are symptomatic. The glare can be very bothersome.
1 more thing what is usually the outcome of this proceedure
Dr. Susan : Of course the best person to ask is your surgeon- he know how you heal, what previous problems you've had, his own skill. Although he sounds like he is very skill!!!
yes im very fortunate with my 2 surgeons they are wonderful
Dr. Susan : Yes! So don't worry- its worth a try!
Dr. Susan : He used the term sweep- that tells me he is not worried! That it is simple
