I had pinguecula surgery 4 months ago. How long does it take for the conjuctove tissue to grow back over my eye? Also, one of my eyes had more red veins than it did before and it looks worse. I'm afraid to get the same procedure done again, because of the risk of sclera thinning. Does I-Brite work with Dr. Boxer Walcher? I just feel that my doctor made it sound like my eyes would be white after the procedure and I wasn't aware that veins would grow back. Also, I've seen other people with the exact same sugrery done from the same doctor with no veins? Does that mean he cut a too thick layer out of my conjuctival tissue?
Can't speculate on exactly what happened with your surgery but the veins to sometimes grow back more than before. I personally am very much against the Ibrite procedure because it could lead to terrible complications down the road. Also, if you ever get another eye problem and need eye surgery for glaucoma or a retinal problem, having had the conjunctiva removed will interfere. I would highly advise against it.
