I had conjunctivol plasti done. I had an abrasion to my conjuntiva that didn’t heal properly and was causing pain, irretation, dry eye, as well as a droopy eye lid.
I had the surgery on OCT 23rd. So far not much has changed but I am optomistic. They said full healing would take 6-8 weeks, but at the 4 week mark we’re going to look into autologous serum tears for my dry eye issue and then eventually look into plastic surgery to “lift” my upper eye lid. (They were hoping that the surgery would fix everything but all signs are not pointing in that direction.) [/quote]
Ahh. So your most probably suffering from dry eye symptoms.
Google “thera -tears”. Those are one of the better eye lubricants on the market. Depending on severity and aetiology, you might want to consider “cyclosporin-A” eye drops. Although I would discuss this with your ophthalmologist.
Using a more viscous gel like eye drop just before bed may benefit you, to protect your eyes from dry eye as you sleep and help provide an optimum environment for the anterior surface of your eye to repair. I would also suggest supplementation with fish oil and vitamin A. Use sunglasses outside, and try and avoid any direct contact from forced air sources such as air conditioners.
Well right now I’m prescribed prednisolone and tobradex oinment. I see the doctor on Thursday to see if I can start wein(sp) myself off of those. I was looking for things other than tears or gels, those are more just fixing a sympton rather than a problem.
I had 20/20 vision and not a single eye problem pre incident and I intend to do whatever it takes to get back to that.
