This patient presented with a large cyst in the colored part of the eye (the iris) and was sent to us for iris reconstructive surgery. He was beginning to suffer from glare, pain, and decreased vision. Typically we have to perform delicate eye surgery to remove cyst and suture the area which can be very difficult and have high risk of complications. We came up with a plan to use our in- office laser to lyse the cyst and provide healing to our patient without having to go into the operating room. Procedure took about 3-4 minutes. Before and after pictures are seen here. Our patient was overjoyed with the result and the fact he did not have to undergo a risky surgery.
We are honored to do our best to come up with individualized solutions to difficult eye challenges at Eye Specialists and Surgeons of Northern Virginia. Please call us at 571-349-2191 if we can be of assistance.
