Why is snellen's operation for treatment of entropion obsolete?


we have better newer techniques  (+ info)

Can contact lenses treat entropion?


I would think not. Considering the effects of entropion can damage the contact lens as much as it would the actual surface of the eye. The only way to treat it, is to get a simple surgery to remove the excess skin from the outer lid.  (+ info)

Entropion Operation?


My friend has what appears to be an entropion and her doctor has recommended surgery. Has anyone had this and had surgery to correct it? And if so, can you tell me how it went and about your experience?

Thank you so much
----------

i regret I haven't had that experience.

DOC  (+ info)

I have an entropion, ca it be corrected cos ive had 6 sugeries and i'm fed up?


My eye has been stiched with quickert stutures 3 times, and ive had 3 general anestetics which included a graft taken from my mouth, which was agony. The doc is now thinking about doing another op, with a graft from my ear, this sounds worse, but i need it fixed cos its diving me nuts, im only 17, what should i do?
----------

That sounds awful, worse than getting freezing in your nose which was bad. hope all goes well for you  (+ info)

Im 13 and i think i have Entropion?


My bottom eyelashes fold inwards.
Not all my eyelashes at the bottom just a few of them (the ones closer to my nose)
It hasnt been EXTREMELY irritating.
Occasionally my eye would itch so i'd have to put some eye drops in but it may or may not be because i have a dust allergy aswell.

I went to the doctor and they told me to see a specialist and well i forgot about my appointment there so it just ended about there and didnt go back to the doctor again.

Im also really scared of surgery, my mom told me my uncle had Entropion and he had to get surgery to fix it permanently. She also told me my eyes would look funny afterwards.

Are there any before and after pictures i can look at?
and will the surgery hurt?
----------

I'm more willing to bet it's trichiasis rather than entropion. You're a little young for that. Trichiasis is a condition in which the eyelashes grow inwards and make contact with the cornea. What kind of doctor did you see, because even an optometrist is capable of plucking the offending eyelashes out with a forceps (it does not hurt).  (+ info)

Should I ask for money back on my vet bill?


My 19 month mix just got entropion eye surgery on Tue. (an inverted eye lid, rubbing on the cornea)The Dr call and said everything went well and he was very aggressive with the surgery to make sure the lid won't rub. I went to pick my baby up.... and what do you know they did the WRONG eye. I have him in surgery once again today because his eye is very painful and of course this surgery is free ( I paid $1000.00) before I saw him come out. Anytime any animal goes under it's dangerous... Should I ask for some money back for being incompetent? Is that some sort of malpractice? Oh and the eye that should of been done has a huge ulcer on the cornea that even a child could see... which means he didn't take the time to examine him before sugery.

Call your state vet, explain the issue - they will direct you from there - there could be other issues current with this vet - pay your bill - that was you are totally in the right and there might be compensation later on down the road. Contact a referal clinic (that do eyes, ortho, etc) and have the dog checked out to see if there is further damage that was created or another course that needs to be taken - don't go back to the vet that you used - you can contact another clinic to get the referal info - but get you records transfered to the referal clinic - they are yours and they have tansfer them - good luck and think about getting another vet for all your other stuff - you never know, you might be able to get the vet to pay for the specialist since he messed things up to begin with  (+ info)

Short term memory loss, from traumatic experience. Anyone out there suffer this, how long and how did you cope


My dog, a 1yr 4 moth old rottie was taken to an opthamologist to correct a condition entropion. Entropion is where the eye lid flips towards the eye and the lashes run against the cornea, making the dog uncomfortable. Long and short of it, she was dropped off in the a.m. and I received a telephone call at 345pm stating the operation went perfectly, and words verbatim by the vet, "With your permission we would like to keep her over night so she does not "paw" at her stitches." A little worried, I agreed. The vet called me at 0804am the next morning and told me my dog hung herself while trying to escape the facility. What was a collar on her for in a holding area, more importantly...she was supposed to be monitored. I am seeing a therapist over this, and I have Acute Stress Disorder and Bi-Polar "Mixed" state. Have any of you had trauma severely to cause short term memory loss? I asked this question earlier, but haven't come across any real answers. Thank you, and please no ridicule.

August 15 this year I was caught up in a terrible earthquake and got locked in my sisters house all by myself during the almost 4 minutes it lasted.

From that day I began to have memory problems, I still don't remember what happened during the quake, I got lost twice & it so happens I was just around the corner from the house, I did not remember where I left things, I would go out and not know where to, would come back and not close the door & slept with a wide opened front door twice & could never find my keys. I would even forget to eat & sleep.

Once I became aware of this, I had a medical check up as it could have been my cholesterol or any other physical issue, but it was not. The doctor told me it was stress & that I did not want to remember what I had been through. So what I have done is this:
- Have my medicines in very small plastic bottles, one for each day and ten of those on my night table, all labeled.
- I hired a lady to do the house work, to remind me to eat and serve my food.
- I have set my night table alarm clock to the time I am supposed to go to bed.
- Have all my bills and others in separate envelopes, hung those envelopes on a rack & wrote on them what they are.& when due for payment. The driver pays the bills.
- Made four additional key sets, gave a copy to each of my two neighbor friends + one set on a small chain around my neck + the last one in charge of the driver I have known for years.
- Made an ID for myself, had it plasticized & also hang it on the chain around my neck.
- Reprogrammed my phone now only one number to get medical care from my insurance company to which I have placed one of their pink stickers and another for the Heart Trauma Center with one of their yellow stickers.
- Made a photocopy of my Insurance ID and scotch taped it to the phone.
- I donĀ“t read anymore nor watch TV.
- I keep my self busy exercising my memory with Internet trivia, puzzles and others that oblige me to think & remember and are also much fun.
-I have a new calendar where I write what I am supposed to do each of the comming days.
- I keep my private phone book updated, very easy to read & attached to the phone with a small chain.
- I have given back 4 of my Credit Cards to the banks, have only kept one + written instructions to not pay out anything over a certain amount, without first checking with me. I keep track of what I spend in a small note book along with my credit card.

All the above has taken away the horrible feeling of loosing my memory, I am much better now & the stress in beginning to drop day by day. What I have done has helped me to not be afraid of any possible consequences by memory loss, everything is where I can find it & under control.

This has helped me a lot though I am not yet capable of answering on Yahoo Q&A. It will come back as I get better so I don't feel any stress about it, there are some days I can not answer anything so I just forget it and use my time in the garden with the plants & listen to music.

Sorry for the long post but I had to remember all this & it has cost me a lot, I am very tired & going to bed.

Regards.  (+ info)

Short term memory loss, in a traumatic situation have you experienced short term memory loss?


Some of you know, but Tuesday it will be 9 miserable weeks for me. My beloved family member Betsy, a 1yr 4 moth old rottie was taken to an opthamologist to correct a condition entropion. Entropion is where the eye lid flips towards the eye and the lashes run against the cornea, making the dog uncomfortable. Long and short of it, she was dropped off in the a.m. and I received a telephone call at 345pm stating the operation went perfectly, and words verbatim by the vet, "With your permission we would like to keep Betsy over night so she does not "paw" at her stitches. A little worried, I agreed. The vet called me at 0804am the next morning and told me my dog hung herself while trying to escape the facility. What was a collar on for in a holding area, more importantly...she was supposed to be monitored. I am seeing a therapist over this, and I have Acute Stress Disorder and Bi-Polar "Mixed" state.
Have any of you had trauma severely to cause short term memory loss? Experiences? How long?
See the dog was under the vets care and custody. Apparantly while she was NOT being watched so she would not paw at her stitches, she tried to get out of the pen, had a collar on (no-no collars in crates or holding areas) and she tried to climb over the fence and her collar got stuck on the top of the fence and she hung herself. Horrible death. I am suffering from this ordeal tremendously and wondering if any of your folks experienced it? Used to be right on top of things with work now always lookin' lookin' lookin to see what is going on.
Yes, she hung herself while the vet was supposed to monitor her. Thanks for answers and sharing experiences
yes, the doctor was kicking himself for telling me what happended. I took her for an examination to my vet to determine the death. Strangulation.
Yes, I am sure she died from strangulation. 2nd opinion. Please folks, I am asking about the short term memory loss, and have explained why I have acquired it, I am not asking answers like "wow I never heard of a dog hanging itself"
Again, I am asking if anyone has experienced short term memory loss after trauma, she was not just a dog to me, that is me, to others maybe "just a dog". How long did it last, and how did you cope with it? That is all I am asking. Please, serious answers. Thank you.
