Hi, Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe’s Belladonna 30 and Euphrasia 30 - both thrice daily for 4 days. Use Euphrasia Eye drops twice daily. Revert back thereafter. Management: - Try to rest your eyes if redness is due to fatigue or eye strain. No other treatment is needed. - Wash your hands, hold clean water in your hand, keep your eyes closer to the water and dip the eyes by blinking the eyelids frequently in the held water in hand. Repeat it for 3-4 times again. - Avoid watching T. V. Working on computer or mobile, reading or frequently keep blinking your eyes to avoid dryness. Take frequent breaks in between. - Maintain hygiene, use a clean napkin or a tissue to wipe the tears and cleaning the eyelids gently. -Wear an UV-rays protected sunglasses while you are out in sun.

Carrot - Good for Improving Vision

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Carrot - Good for Improving Vision

Carrots improve eyesight and deficiency of vitamin A can cause some difficulty seeing in dim light. Since carrots are rich in vitamin a, they are good for improving eyesight and preventing conditions like night blindness from developing as we age.

Lutivit is simple multivitamin, it will not cause any problems. You can take these capsules. For specific problems like gall stone, cholesystectomy is required.

Hello dear there are many causes for redness of eyes mainly allergy, infection, inflammation and dry eyes etc. 1. Redness + itching: allergy 2. Redness + pain+ watering + decreased vision: infection 3. Redness + pain: inflammation 4. Redness+ foreign body sensation: dryness if there is only redness then it is normal as slight exposure to dust, temperature or air or eyes may be red in morning. Stress may also cause redness. I usually do not treat when there is only redness, you can 1. Blink a lot 2. Wash eyes with fresh water 3. Cold compresses 4. Use lubricating eyedrop like flogel these measures will help to keep your eyes healthy but it will not have any effect on redness (treating generalredness alone is not necessary also) having said that you should consult local ophthalmologist for proper examination and treatment.

success rate is very good if properly selected cases are done with good machinery ,the success rates are close to 99% 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

If I see girls first my I eyes will be on there breasts and body. I want to get rid of this.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
If I see girls first my I eyes will be on there breasts and body. I want to get rid of this.
It's okay if this is a problem for you -- after all, you're only human -- but if you want the girl to respect you and to not feel objectified, then you have to make an effort to change your habit.For this I haave developed below given strategies and hope you can benefit from this 1.Find another place to rest your eyes. So making eye contact is great, but you can't do it 24/7 without freaking the girl out, so decide on a place where you will rest your eyes from time to time. It can be the clock above the girl's head, it can be your watch or the books you're holding, or it can be the door to the left of you. Whenever your eyes need to take a break, return them to that same location so they don't end up wandering over to an inappropriate area. One of the reasons that you may be looking at the girl's chest is because you feel the need to break eye contact and naturally rest your eyes on an appealing place.Sure, the girl may think it's a little strange that you're looking at the clock every minute, but that's better than staring at her chest, isn't it? 2.Get lost in conversation. Talk to her about anything -- movies, school, events, or whatever interests you enough to distract you from her breasts. Practice the art ofgood conversation and attentive listening. If you're having a great conversation, then soon enough, you won't be thinking about her boobs. Think of ways to make her laugh, impress her, or to make her feel special, and soon enough, you'll be focusing on the right things.

If you are having itching in your eyes then its because of some allergy. The allergy can result from dust, smoke, fumes, pets, automobile exhausts, fumes from insence stick (agarbatti), house mites, cosmetics like face powder, cream, shampoo, hair dyes & for ladies it can be because of eyeliner or muscara. When the itching is severe then take tab. Lecope or tab histafree at night for 3days & histafree eye drop 4-5 times/day x 7 days. Along with it start cromal forte eye drop 4 times/day x 3months so that the next attack is delayed & is less severe.

There is no medication or food for improving eyesight or to get rid of glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser as your age is now 18 years so your number will not increase 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. As you are not comfortable with contact lens then go for lasik. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.
