I am curious about the surgery where they put a stitch or two in lids to close them more... first of all, is it noticeable? Does it look odd, or can you not even tell they're stitched? My son has slight ectropian with his LI and the doctor mentioned this surgery as a possibility in the future. I am wondering if I should just have it done to avoid the abrasions in the meantime.
I am wondering if he got an abrasion this week. He woke up one morning with one eye bright red in the inner corner. The white part of the eye. It looked like a few of the little blood vessels broke. He was able to open the eye and he didn't rub it or complain about it unless I was trying to open his eye to check on it. It has gotten more pink than red now, so it must be healing. Is that what it looks like? I had originally thought he must have rubbed some Amlactin in it or something, but now I'm wondering...
