I have a dimp on the side of the top nose bridge. I've added a picture that shows the location where it is and where i would like to have some filler injected. I went to a PS and discussed the issue with him. He told me that it was too dangerous to inject any filler in that area. It could get in a vein and end up getting in my eye causing a blind spot or blindness. Are there any other solutions? and is it really that dangerous in that area? ps. i've added a picture of the veins in the face.

Blindness and Fillers
There is a small risk of blindness if the injection is placed in the wrong place. A strong knowledge of the anatomy is critical as well as finding a skilled injector who is a specialist to help address your area of concern. Please consult with a board certified specialist who can assist you with achieving the results you seek.
Your plastic surgeon is correct. There is a risk of blindness injecting in that area. The risk, however is extremely small and has only been reported a handful of times anywhere in the world. The vast majority of those reports have been with injections of fat and not a filler like Radiesse or hyaluronic acid. Obviously, you would be better going to an expert injector, someone with experience injecting in that area. I hope you find this helpful.
