Your pupil measurements in the light and the dark is one factor that affects your suitability for a LASIK procedure. It is measured with a special device called the infrared pupillometer. This test is important because if you have a generally larger pupil size, you are at a higher risk of night vision problems such as glares and haloes. Your surgeon may make some adjustment to the parameters of your surgery in order to minimise this risk.
Each glaucoma medication is prescribed at a certain frequency and recommended to be administered at certain times of the day. The rationale for this is to take into account the half-life of the drug in order to ensure that an effective dose of medication is consistently delivered to the eye to maintain a relatively low and consistent intraocular pressure. Each drug is also recommended at certain times of the day in order to minimise the risk of side-effects and to ensure that the maximum efficacy of the drug coincides with the diurnal peak of intraocular pressure.
Dry eyes and chronic blepharitis do not cause trigeminal neuralgia. However, these conditions may exacerbate the symptoms. The main causes of trigeminal neuralgia include multiple sclerosis or compression of the ganglion due to a tumour. Effective treatments are known to include neuromodulators including anti-convulsants like Tegretol, carbamazepine, anti-depressants (nortriptyline, amitriptyline).
