Brief Answer: please read a detailed answer below Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thanks for writing to us. Alcohol can affect eyes if taken in large quantities. It can lead to blurred vision, double vision, tunnel vision, color insensitivity, difficulty in adjusting to light etc. Sonetimes it may cause painless loss of vision. As far as treating keloids in concerned, personally I find these procedures better than laser Intralesional injection of steroid with or without 5 fluoro uracil Cryotherapy with or without intralesional injection Surgical debulking of larger keloids with intralesional steroid These procedures can be done singly or in conbination depending upon the size of keloid. I would appreciate if you could upload some pics of your keloids so that I can guide you better. Thanks and regards
