Medication doesn't remove scar tissue. Whether surgery would help you or not can only be determined by an Eye MD that can examine your eye.

"scar tissue" is not a specific diagnosis. It says nothing about what caused the scar, how big the scar is or where the scar is. So I cannot respond to your question.  If you are not comfortable with your situation get a second opinion.

Use the search feature and archives to look up the many discussions we've had in previous posts.

Also Google "blepharitis emedicine"
