Acular

This is an eye drop in the NSAID class of medicines. It is an anti-inflammatory drop with a mechanism similar to Advil or Motrin. It is occasionally used to help with ocular discomfort but mainly used after eye surgery. This class of medicines is good at decreasing the chance of macular edema (retinal swelling) after cataract surgery. It can sting a little going in, however.

Superior Oblique Myokymia

This is an uncommon ophthalmology finding. With this disorder, the superior oblique muscle spasmically fires, and the eye rotates. Look closely at one of the conjunctival vessels and you can see it move. This is different than rotary nystagmus, as nystagmus are more rhythmic.

Pyogenic Granuloma on Eye

This ophthalmology finding is somewhat rare. Not only can pyogenic granulomas form on the inner eyelid (for example, at the site of a chalazion) they can also form on the bulbar conjunctiva. Typically treat with steroids and tears ... and if it doesn't melt away, than consider a surgical excision.

Pyogenic Granuloma on Eyelid

This red mass is a pyogenic granuloma that has formed on the inner surface (the palpebral conjunctiva) of the eyelid. These growths can often form at the site of a chalazion, and will go away with steroids and tears. If they are large, however, like this one than they may warrant surgical removal.

Punctum: Eyelid Anatomy

The punctum (puncta) are tiny holes located in the eyelids near the bridge of the nose. Excess tears drain through the punctum, down the canalicular system into the lacrimal sac, then down into the nose. This explains why you get a runny nose when your eyes are watering.
