SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hey Guys, I'm asking for your advice, got an ophtho question (I'm a physician but in an unrelated field). So my right eye has always had a patch of large blood vessels and a small 'pinguecula' according to a couple opthalmologists I've seen, who basically told me to ignore the red appearance as its still 'healthy.' Nonetheless, it does bothers me and I've had some of my pts ask me if I have pink eye, esp since it can be bright red at the end of the day. Anyhow I looked into options and found only one or two ophthalmologists with websites describing surgeries to reduce the appearance of prominent blood vessels. One guy is Dr Brian Boxer-Wachler who invented the i-brite procedure. http://www.boxerwachler.com/whiteeyes/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfRmCIpBXBA&feature=related My question is, how safe is this procedure? I know not many ophthalmologists do this. I had a consult with Dr Boxer-Wachler and he saws he removes the entire conjunctiva and then uses some mitomycin C for a few days. Is this safe? Is this a similar procedure as one would do for pterygium removal? Thanks for any input.
