How many percent does traumatic cataract effect on vision and can be recover vision after surgery. Which surgeries are carried out for it.

The percent of vision affected depends on the cause or intensity of injury that caused the cataract, and also how long back the injury occurred. The eye surgeon who is going to do the surgery can give you a clear estimation of the possibility of percentage of visual recovery. The procedure will be to clear the cataract by phacoemulsification or laser emulsification, or total removal of cataract and implanting an intraocular lens (iol). Do not unduly worry about the outcome, best method is to get the surgery done and hope for the best possible results.

I have lots of computer works to do, now my eye site getting weak, what should I do?

I have lots of computer works to do, now my eye site getting weak, what should I do?
Hello dear. 1. Computer work can't make your eyes weak. Onlt thing it can do is computer vision syndrome. I will describe computer vision syndrome subsequently. 2. Your refractive error (glass number) will not increase much now as it usually stabilizes at 18-20years age. So relax 3. To get rid of glasses you can try contact lens or go for lasik surgery now coming to computer vision syndrome: prolonged working on laptop/tv/mobile can cause computer vision syndrome. Computer vision syndrome is a condition resulting from focusing the eyes on a computer or other display device for, uninterrupted periods of time. Some symptoms of cvs include a. Headaches b blurred vision c. Neck pain d redness in the eyes e. Eye strain f dry eyes these symptoms can be further aggravated by improper lighting conditions. Measures to reduce this include 1. Work under proper light. 2. Blink a lot. 3. Cold compresses 4. Use good lubricating eyedrop.

Hi lybrate-user! You need to consult with Neurologist to check if there is any underlying problem. This doesn't seem to be Psychological, Only Neurologist can explain you the exact reason and it is your option to take English medicine or allopathic. Take care. Have check up and be relieved. With regards, Psy. MSV.

I have power in my eyes. I am a teenager. Is it curable or it works increase or remain the same for my whole life?
Depends on how much is your power. It usuallly stabilizes by 18-20 years. Unfortunately there are no natural medications to remove spectacles permanently. You can either try contact lenses or plan for refractive lasik laser surgery.

Hello. There is no medication or food for improving eye sight or to get rid of glasses. Get your vision tested and wear glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens as your age is now 17 years so your number will increase little now whether you wear glasses or not as number becomes stable at age of 18-20 yrs. Having said that I advise you to eat balanced diet including green vegetables and seasonal fruits for keeping eyes and body healthy. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. But as your number is huge lasik is not good option for you you can go for phakic iol to get rid of glasses after age of 18 yrs.

Sir please guide me for lasik treatment for eyes. And what will be the cost for this.

Sir please guide me for lasik treatment for eyes. And what will be the cost for this.
Lasik is a simple laser procedure which changes the shape of the cornea so that the light rays fall on the retina properly. It is a painless procedure. It is a day care procedure does not require any injections, does not require admission, you can simply resume your duties in 2 days. Cost varies from centre to centre. Side effects are usually limited to dryness of eyes for few months. We can do lasik anytime after age of 18 years. You need to undergo proper prelasik checkup to decide whether lasik is safe for you or not.
