I have red eye for 5 months and I take many medical treatments but no effect. Provide me the guidance of treatment.

I have red eye for 5 months and I take many medical treatments but no effect. Provide me the guidance of treatment.
Hello, Bloodshot eyes appear red because the vessels at the surface of the white portion of the eye (sclera) become swollen. Vessels may swell due to: Eye dryness Too much sun exposure Dust or other particles in the eye Allergies Infection Injury Eye infections or inflammation can cause redness as well as possible itching, discharge, pain, or vision problems. Other causes of eye redness include Colds or allergies, Acute glaucoma, Corneal scratches: Injuries caused by sand, dust, or overuse of contact lenses. Sometimes, a bright red spot, called a subconjunctival hemorrhage, will appear on the white of the eye. This often happens after straining or coughing, which causes a broken blood vessel on the surface of the eye. Most often, there is no pain and your vision is normal. It is almost never a serious problem. Because the blood leaks into the conjunctiva, which is clear, you cannot wipe or rinse the blood away. Like a bruise, the red spot will go away within a week or two. 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 wash 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. - In case there is itching, use a clean napkin or a tissue to wipe the tears and cleaning the eyelids gently. Medication: 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.

Is macular degeneration hereditary? My mother has it, and I’m wondering if I should be prepared.

Is macular degeneration hereditary? My mother has it, and I’m wondering if I should be prepared.
Hello lybrate-user. Sorry about your mother's eye problem. Macular degeneration has many causes associated with it. Let me enumerate them in brief: (1) age related macular degeneration. It tends to occur in certain people with progressing age. This is usually not totally hereditary. It is more so determined by age and many other factors like consumption of tobacco, etc. Though, there is an element of heredity associated with it, it is not totally hereditary. (2) heredomacular degeneration: as the name suggests, it is hereditary in nature and tends to run in families. It may vary in severity. (3) macular degeneration due to exposure to ultraviolet light, infrared light, etc. There are various other causes as well. It would be a good idea to ask your retina specialist in person regarding the type of degeneration that your mother is suffering from. That would help to predict whether you are at an increased risk or not. Hope my suggestions helped you.

Water flow from my eye during using mobile and laptop please tell me using anti glare glass can solve this problem?
While using mobile/laptop for long intervals continuously, eyes get exhausted. While using mobile /laptop make sure that the lightening in room is proper to reduce and negate the effects. You can also reduce the intensity of the mobile/laptop screen by attaching a filter or by getting an eye-friendly screen. Above all, one must try to reduce the amount of mobile/laptop usage or take frequent breaks. Do not use mobile/laptop continuously for more than 30 minutes and most important do not use mobile with low battery. The bright light of the mobile/laptop screen gets more focused on our eyes and this causes dryness of the eyes and thus causing weakness of vision and eye and head pain and watering-------- homoeopathic medicine cinelube eye drops (hapdco) pour 2 drops 3 times daily.

At this age there may be change in power due to age related changes that happen in the lens. But as you age the power required for near vision will definitely change.

Dear lybrate user, I think it must have been very difficult for you to take insults in the form of teasing. Beating etc since childhood. I sense that these insults have impacted you a lot. Probably no one appreciated you till now. As a result you have low self esteem and low confidence. It appears to me that you believe in what people say about you, hence you think that you are weak and coward. According to me, the reason why you do not retaliate is, that is what your parents/teachers or other elders at home told you to do. Probably, because of your low self esteem, you also thought that you'deserve' this kind of treatment. Though you were angry, you did not fight back, because you thought you were physically weak as well. Emotional abuse is more hurtful than physical abuse. Even if people are making fun of your squint, please accept it as your reality. And look at yourself as a" whole" person and you will realise that you are lucky to have a healthy, normal body. Now please understand that, you are 22 and an adult and not small/weak anymore. Try to get enough physical strength with the help of good nutrition and exercise. Then you will not feel weak, physically. Then make a list of your strengths, that you think you have, read it everyday. Do not take negativity from anyone. Believe in yourself. No one is" born" weak emotionally/morally. The life experiences cause this weakness. Now you need to take charge of your life. Tell yourself that you are valuable. You have many skills/strengths. Keep yourself away from people who try to pull you down. Be with the people who have positive attitude towards life. Only you can help yourself - try to gain more physical and emotional strength. All the best.

I don't like to wear glasses.
Myopic correction is done with glasses, contact lenses and refractory surgery (lasik). Lasik is the only option if you donot intend to wear the glasses or contact lenses. Kindly see your ophthalmologist for the same.

Hello lybrate-user. Sorry about your eye trouble. If you have irritation along with discharge, it would be more likely due to infection of the eyes. You should use an antibiotic eye drops. Use moxifloxacin eye drops 4 times in a day along with tobramycin eye drops 4 times in a day. Keep a gap of 15 minutes between two types of drops. Continue using the lubricant eye drops 6 to 7 times in a day. Wash your eyes regularly. Avoid rubbing your eyes with fingers, handkerchief, cloth, etc with the eye drops and the hygienic precautions mentioned you are sure to get relieved from your signs and symptoms within a short span of time. Take care-regards.

About Amblyopia or Lazy Eye

DNB Ophtalmology, MS - Ophthalmology, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
About Amblyopia or Lazy Eye

Amblyopia is commonly known as 'Lazy Eye'. It is a vision development disorder, which affects eyes and the brain during infancy and childhood. It signifies that the eye does not achieve a normal visual acuity even with refractive correction in form of glasses or contact lens. During normal visual development, the eye and brain learns to 'see' and develop binocularity, that is the ability to perceive depth (Stereoacuity). This occurs in the first 8 to 10 years of life. 

Each eye transmits a clear and identical image from retina to the brain, which fuses the two images into a single image with 3 dimensions ( adding depth). When the image is formed on the retina of two eyes is too dissimilar, the brain cannot fuse the two images and suppresses the more blurred image. As a result, the worse eye does not learn to 'see' and becomes 'lazy'. This condition is seen in 1-4% of population.

The common causes for dissimilar images or Amblyopia are:

1. Misalignment of the eyes or squint: It is the primary reason for Amblyopia is misalignment of the eyes. In case, both your eyes are not aimed in the same direction, the image captured by each eye is different , resulting in diplopia. The brain will see from the dominant eye and suppress image from the other eye. Over a prolonged period of time, the eye dissociates from the visual cortex of the brain.

2. Refractive Amblyopia:

  • Unequal refractive error in both eye. When the eye power of both eyes differ by more than 1.5D of spherical equivalent, which results in dissimilar images between the two eyes. As a result, the visual development in restricted in the worse eye.
  • High refractive error or astigmatism in both eyes, since there is a blurred image in both eyes, the normal vision development does not occur in either eyes resulting in bilateral lazy eyes.

3. Cloudiness in visual system or visual deprivation Amblyopia: Any kind of obstruction or cloudiness in the normal visual axis of the eye tissues can lead to Amblyopia. Disorder of any kind, which blocks a clear image from being focused blocks the formation of a clear image on your retina. Commonly due to congenital or developmental cataracts or corneal opacities or prolonged closure of one eye in early childhood( drooping of one eyelid, eyelid swelling, patching of one eye).

Treatment for Amblyopia: For treatment of Amblyopia, a child must be compelled to utilize his affected, weaker eye. This can be done by correction of causative factor such as, treating refractive error with glasses, surgical correction of misalignment of eyes followed by patching and vision therapy, cataract surgery.

Patching or occlusion of the good eye: This is done to force the brain to pay attention to visual input from the worse eye. This allows nerve connections between affected eye and brain to develop due to, which the eye 'learns to see'. Eye drops such as atropine are also used for blurring the vision of the good eye. Some form of vision therapy may also be required to train both eyes to see together and develop some degree of depth perception.

To be effective, treatment should be implement as early as possible , within the period of normal visual development best within first 8 years of life. Some visual gain has been seen in selected patients up to age of 14 to 18 years. This also highlights the importance of a comprehensive eye examination as a routine in young children.

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 b. Lasik laser as your age is now 20 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.

If your power has become stable , you may go lasik if you don't want to use glass , Myopic power is inherited from either mother or father side & is basically hereditary in nature ,maximum increase in myopic power takes place between 13 to 21 yrs in male & between 13 yrs to 19 yrs in female because maximum body growth takes place between these periods. There is no direct medicine to check the increase in myopic power but with the help of balanced diet ,green vegetables & seasonal fruits  one can slow the speed in the increase of myopic  power,one can take the help of yoga pranayam, swimming, gym &these things definitely slow the speed of increase in myopic power.
