Default Re:Laser Treatment on Newborn's Eyelid

Hi newdad, My name is hank and I have PWS on my eye lids and I have used the shield on my eyes and I strongly suggest waiting until you can use the shields because when the laser is used with out the shield your daughters eyes are not protected my the beams of the laser. It will destroy the cornea of her eye. Put it into this prospective, it would be the samething as if you did some welding on a project with out a helmet. It would make you go blind evenually.

Good luck and hope all goes well.

Hank
