Mobile screen is made up of hundreds of tiny pixels that are constantly moving. Our eyes in turn are not naturally able to set focus on these constantly moving pixels, and hence we try to focus on an area behind the actual screen. Therefore, in order to work on a mobile, our eyes need to keep on fluctuating focus between their natural point of focus and the pixels on the screen. And this tires the eyes and causes a lot of wear and tear. As a result, we suffer from irritation, which may range from a number of things like headaches, dry eyes, blurred vision, problems in focusing and faulty color perception, to something as severe as glaucoma. The electromagnetic waves that are emitted by a mobile phone can be extremely damaging to the eyes. It has been studied and well documented that these cell phone waves can have a damaging effect on the various parts of the eye, including the retina and the cornea. Moreover, they can cause cataract too. Moreover it is more distressing for our eyes to view contents on a tiny screen which requires even more concentration and extenive usage of eyes without blinking thus causing Eye dryness making them vulnerable to frequent Eye problemss.. The solution for this problem Is its reduced usage and while using mobiles/Laptop use them in proper light. There is nothing more effective than controlling usage to reduce and negate the effects. You can also reduce the intensity of the mobile’s/Computer screen by attaching a filter or by getting an eye-friendly screen. Above all, one must try to reduce the amount of mobile usage or take frequent breaks. ------------- Homoeopathic medicine CINELUBE EYE DROPS (HAPDCO) Pour 2 drops 3 times daily.

I have some eye problem in nights I cant see the roads properly by wearing specs.
may be due to night blindness, consult eye doctor, You may also be asked to give a blood sample. Blood testing can measure your vitamin A and glucose levels. Night blindness caused by nearsightedness, cataracts, or vitamin A deficiency is treatable. Corrective lenses, such as eyeglasses or contacts, can improve nearsighted vision both during the day and at night.

Stop wearing your contacts and show your eyes to ophthalmologist. With soft lenses, you have serious danger of infection. You can wear extended wear breathing menicon contact lenses.

Well its unclear what type of surgery your doctor has advised. And also you need to ask what is cause of vision being cloudy. Based on that only cost of surgery can be determined.

Hello, get your eyes tested from an opthalmologist. Include the following for getting better vision: vitamins a, c, e, and minerals like copper and zinc are essential to eyesight. Get the antioxidants from dark leafy greens, egg yolks, yellow peppers, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Include garlic and onions. Blueberries, grapes as they have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help improve your vision. Dha is a fatty acid found in coldwater fish like salmon, sardines and mackerel. Exercises for strengthening eye muscles: -begin by partially closing your eyes; the lids should only be halfway shut. After holding for 10-15 seconds, close your eyes very slowly. Take a few deep breaths to increase oxygen in the blood. -warm your eyes. Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Repeat this three times. -hold a pen at arm's length. Focus your gaze on the tip of the pen. Bring the pen closer to your nose at a slow and steady pace. Repeat this exercise 5-10 times. -concentrate your vision on the tip of your nose. Then shift your gaze to an object further away, either at arm's length or 20 feet away. Then shift your eyes back to the tip of your nose. Repeat this exercise 10 times. -sit in a relaxed but upright position. Begin by look to the left-most position (without moving your head) and hold to stretch your eye muscles. Hold for 5 counts. Blink and return your gaze back to look straight in front of you. Then look to the right-most position with your gaze and hold for 5 counts. Repeat 3 times, blinking between each hold. Then, repeat this exercise looking up and then down. Do not forget about blinking. -sit in a relaxed but upright position. Look up and to your right for 5 seconds. Return your gaze to center. Look up to and to your left for 5 seconds. Return your gaze to center. Look down and to your right for 5 seconds. Return your gaze to center. Look down and to your left for 5 seconds. Insufficient sleep may weaken your vision, so shoot for 8 hours of sound sleep a night. Rest your eyes 10 minutes for every 50 minutes spent reading or in front of the computer. If your eyes feel overly tired, lie down and place cooling cucumber slices over your eyelids. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine which will help you in preventing further worsening of your myopia. Take physostigma 6/ thrice daily for 3 months and instill euphrasia eye drops twice a day. Thereafter, revert back for further guidance.

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 22 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. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

My three years old daughter have eye problem which may be squint or false squint........ I want to know about this issue , can you help me out of this?

MBBS, MS - Ophthalmology
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
Squint is basically misalignment of visual axis of two eyes (meaning 2 eyes looking in different directions).Type of squint can be detected by few tests conducted by ophthalmologists. Ideally, all squint patients should visit an ophthalmologist at its earliest so as get diagnosed correctly and to save vision with aggressive eye exercises and medical management . And if not managed early, it can lead to significant loss of vision in lazy eye which is almost inevitable to restore vision. However, in later case, only the alignment of eye can be corrected with surgery for cosmetic purposes but no vision is improved.

Hello lasik is very good option to get rid of glasses Doctor will perform few tests (Schirmer test, Pentacam and Fundus examination) and if all tests are normal then you can go for lasik surgery without fear. Success rate of LASIK is over 96%. Lasik is painless Side effects are usually minor like dryness, glare etc Serious side effects like infections etc are very rare.

As you have dust allergy most probably your irritation is also due to allergy. Anti-allergic eye drops will give you relief from itching but i suggest you consult a pulmonologist who specializes in allergic disorders and get yourself desensitized or start taking anti allergic tablets like montelukast

I am suffering from glucoma. There is any authentic treatment & can it be cured permanently.

MBBS, DOMS
Ophthalmologist, Hyderabad
There is no permanent cure, in that sense. But very good control can be achieved in majority of people by eye drops alone and very few people would need surgery. Without getting disappointed, just take care with your exact treatment and you can lead an almost normal life.

Hello I was diagnosed with corneal scar due to conjunctivitis. I was on prednisolone drops in stage by stage process. Visited doctor he told right eye has reduced but left eye still has some scars. Hence he gave tacrolimus ointment to be applied night. I applied night and morning my eyes were like burning and irritation. Is it common or should I stop using them. Please suggest.

Hello lybrate-user. From the symptoms described by you, it seems that you have been suffering from viral keratoconjunctivitis. It is a viral infection of the eye and tends to take long periods of time to resolve. By long periods, I mean that it may take months (upto 6 months) to completely heal. If you have been prescribed tacrolimus and its causing a lot of burning with irritation, it might be a good idea to use a lubricant eye drop copiously. Tacrolimus is known to cause burning, irritation and pricking. You could use a lubricant eye drop 8-10 times in a day. It would help in easing your discomfort. I would suggest not to stop the tacrolimus therapy without the consent of your cornea specialist. Hope my suggestions helped you.

Get your refraction done and wear spectacles eat green veggies. Carrots. Strain less your eyes. Relax your eyes in between work. Blink regularily if working for long time on computer. Lower the brightness of your screen. Work under adequately illuminated conditions. If needed wear corrective spectacles. These r few things you can take care of. Otherwise as such no options available which wd increases your eyesight.

Computer eye strain is known as computer vision syndrome please follow the advice given below. 1. Take a break-use 20-20 rule, take a break for 20 second after working in computer for 20 minutes and look at some thing 20 feet away. 2. Blink frequently to prevent dryness of eyes 3. Use of computer glass- it optimises your eye sight when you are looking at digital screen and helps to decrease glare 4. Keep your monitor bright- this decreases flicker 5. Use proper lighting like incandescent light 6. Check position of monitor- monitor should be placed 4-5inches below eye level and 20-28 inches from eyes 7. Adjust, screen resolution 8. Minimise glare- clean monitor regularly to remove dust and place an anti glare screen 9. Try massage or eye cupping- massaging the area around the eye will relax eye muscle. Rub your hands together to create friction and warmth, then gently cup your palm over the closed eye and rest them 10. Take multivitamin tablet containing vitamin a, c, e, b complex, zinc and antioxidant (one capsule of revital daily after breakfast) 11. Go for yearly eye examination.
