Question: i just had laser procedure today for narrow angle glaucoma . the pupil of the eye that was treated is very small. Is this normal? Will this correct itself? Is this important/concern enough that I should have my doctor contacted? I am very reluctant to do this due to the time of night ( past midnight my time).

Brief Answer:
miotic pupil is normal

Detailed Answer:
My Dear,
Thanks for sending yourquery to us.
Small pupil is normal for this procedure. The pupil is made small so that laser can be done at the periphery of iris. Also in such glaucomas we try to keep pupil small so that it doesn't block the drainage angles.
Rest assured and do not worry and follow the instructions properly.
Any further query in this regard please do get back to me .

Brief Answer:
What drugs are you using?

Detailed Answer:

Kindly list the drugs that you are still using for the lasered eye. There are a few drugs that are prescribed after laser treatment to control the eye pressure which make the pupil small.

My problem is with my stomach muscles.Inspite of my exercise and moderate food habits I have a stomach of 36 inches.When I sit down I have to adjust my belt by changing the hole.When I wear underwear I feel very tight in abdominal area.Thats why I stopped wearing underwaear except when I exercise. I consulted a specialist who is into weight loss surgery like gastric band and sleeve who initially suggested to go for liposuction.When I requested for a non surgical solution he offered me a complimentary session on Radio frequency Tripolar machine.He promised that I will loose 2 inches over 6 sittings.For each sitting there should be a gap of 2 weeks.He says the skin also will be tightened apart from fat reduction in the tissues.I have also read that this can be done by Ultrasound Lipolysis and Zerona laser treatments. Please suggest me which is ideal for reducing my stomach sag.
