    I have been experiencing eye problems for the past three months mainly severe eye pain. Because of this I had to stop wearing contacts.

  • How risky is eye lift surgery, also known as Blepharoplasty? My mom is set to have one next week. She is excited about it, but equally scared if it affects vision or if any other side effects will happen. Her surgeon at the Lakeview Surgery Centre, http://www.lakeviewsurgery.com/procedures/blepharoplasty , assures her that the chances of side effects are minimal, but just like any person who is...

    Eye screening
