I have perfectly healthy eyes but a prominent eye vessel which really bothers me cosmetically.
My eye doctor who is a an eye surgeon with over 20 years experience says he can cauterize specifically this vessel to make it smaller/disappear.
He said he has done this a few times and has good experience with it. But I want at least 1 second opinion before I proceed, off course I'm scared but I'm considering it because I'm so self aware of it.
What do you guys think ?
Thanks for your Question
I strongly advise against this procedure. These prominent conjunctival blood vessels supply certain parts of the conjunctiva, sclera and deep eye structures with oxygen and nutrients.
Destroying these blood vessels can prevent oxygen and nutrients to reach these parts of the eye which can cause conjunctival and scleral scarring that can lead to severe dry eyes with foreign body sensation and eye irritation.
