Nevus of ota

I've been born with the most embarrassing eye and face condition- nevus of ota. It seems like there are few options available for the cure in the face - laser treatments. but i don't seem to find even one solution that would help me in a long run for "eye" in India! I need help reg this issue. Please help me get through with this ordeal. It would really lift up my spirits!

There are many find ophthalmologists in India, many of whom are attached to medical school faculty.  You need to see an oculoplastic surgeon.  There is no quick and easy fix. Laser may be the best thing that can be offered.   Lately beta blockers have been used for childhood angiomas with good success. I do not know if its helpful to NOO

Occuoplastic surgeons or general facial plastic surgeons would be the type of physicians to contact or perhaps a very skilled dermatologist. All of these do cosmetic surgery

No one can see that. Any it can't be removed and usually causes no problem.
