Question about ViewSonic VA721 17" LCD Monitor

3 Answers

My monitor seem's to be fine but i am having eye problem's.

I had catarac surgery on my right eye back on 06/23/08 and it turned out just fine. I had the same surgery on my left eye on07/14/08. I have had problem's with tearing in that eye ever since. The eye Dr. is still treating me and has used every kind of drop's you can imagine. My eye seem's to be okay untill i have been on the computer for about 15 minutes. I thought that if i could turn down the brightness it might help. The only other course is go on check my email's and get off. You see what is happening is the Dr. is trying to get a true reading for my glasses but twice i have had to take them back because they were to strong. Maby if i could dim the screen a little my eye would stop tearing. That's my story and i'm sticking to it. Hope you can help. Thank's

Its better if you could take some weeks off from your monitor . Consult with an eye surgery specialist. He will give you advice on how vulnerable your eye is.

You should take a few months off from your computer between those doctors visits...You see the small print on your monitor makes you the bloodvessels in your eye to work harder. You dont know's automatic. Another option is to make the print on ur monitor much bigger.

What is the difference with regular cataract surgery and laser cataract surgery

Normal cataract surgery uses a phacoemulsification unit. This unit unit has a small tip on the end of it which uses a jackhammer type motion, it is irrigating as well as aspirating the eye to remove the debris from the eye (loosened catatact) while not collapsing the eye.

The laser technique is an alternative way to break up the cataract yet it still will need irrigation and aspiration for removal.

Can you wear eye makeup within 2 days after cataract eye surgery?

No; the rule of thumb is at least one week; but then again, I am not an Ophthalmologist...I would highly recommend contacting your physician/surgeon who performed the procedure; he or she is responsible for your care and recovery before, during, and after surgery. You don't want to end up with any serious complications or infections that could cause temporary or permanent blindness. In this case- place vanity aside and don't compromise your health, safety, and well being.

Best wishes and a speedy recovery!

For anyone who has lasik eye surgery?

Corrective eye surgery like Lasik is extremely safe when performed by qualified doctors. Like any surgical procedure, there can be complications, but the complication rate is extremely low. Complications affecting vision after laser eye surgery is very less, even it carries less risk of infection than wearing contacts.Most of the eye surgeries are covered by insurance and some surgeons offer payment plans that help you get the surgery done within your budget. Cost is not an issue when it is the matter of your eyes.

Is it possible that my vision could get worse after having eye laser surgery to correct my vision, rather than better?

It is very rare for vision to actually get worse rather than better after eye laser surgery. Very rarely there are complications, but it would have to be a really significant one to have this kind of effect. Make sure you talk through all your concerns with the surgeon before you agree to the surgery.

Is it normal to experience some weird lights and sensations in the eye after eye laser surgery? I have these occasional starbursts and am freaking out.

Don't worry - it's actually perfectly normal to experience vision issues such as light sensitivity, starbursts, halos etc for a few weeks after laser corrective surgery. If after a month, you are still experiencing the symptoms or something is bothering you about your vision, then you should go back to your doctor.

I went to one eye laser clinic and they told me I was not a suitable candidate for corrective eye surgery. Should I give up or is it ok to shop around for a second opinion?

Different clinics have different criteria for accepting people for eye laser surgery. Just because one place has turned you away as unsuitable doesn't mean you should give up altogether. But - it's very important that you only use a clinic that is registered and has a good reputation for safety procedures. Some clinics have better technology for treating more complex cases, but just be sure that the clinic fully understands your medical situation before you agree to the surgery.

If I have corrective eye surgery, how long will I have to wait before I can drive again?

People usually take 2-4 days off work after eye laser surgery. You can drive when your vision is back to 20/40 but some people prefer to wait until they feel more confident that they can really see properly. A lot of people start using their computers and watching tv within a few hours of the surgery but any heavy activity and bright lights etc should be avoided for a few days. Make sure you get specific instructions from the medical team before you are sent home.

What are the risks of having laser surgery? Everyone says it is really safe but I am sure there are some risks. Can anyone tell me what they are?

You are right there are some risks associated with corrective laser eye surgery. They are unlikely to happen but like all procedure's, however minor, there are always some possible side effects and you should be aware of them before you go ahead and have your eyes fixed.

Here are the main potential risks:

1. Fully removing the cap of the cornea instead of just lifting it. It will heal in time but will require extra care.

2. Infection

3. Loss or damage to the corneal cap

4. Tissue growth under the corneal cap

5. Causing a stigmatism

Is it unhealthy for your eyes to have eye surgery to correct your vision? I really want to get rid of my glasses as I hate them but am worried about the long term effects of the surgery.

In the meantime there are no reports of any long term damage after the eye surgery. The cornea is very sturdy and apparently suffers no long term effects from the corrective surgery. But if you are worried you should talk it all through with your doctor before you have it done.

If you have laser eye surgery, how long do the results last?

some people say that corrective eye surgery lasts for the rest of your life. But there have been some cases of regression after many years. But those people often have a second surgery to correct their vision again.
