A year after an accidental scratch on the inside of my eyelid, I still have pain sometimes. Can this be treated?
While riding bike something went into the eyes in morning. Generally foreign particles gets auto flushed if I keep the eye closed for 10-15 min, but this problem persisted till night even after sleeping for 2 hrs in between. Also I was studying till late night. Next day the irritation had gone but the eye started twitching. Am just worried is it normal or requires doctors attention.

Brief information about LASIK Laser Vision Correction
What does Laser vision correction do ?
Laser vision correction is a technique used for the correction of spectacle number being worn by the patient . This treatment enables the patient to see clearly without glasses.
Who are the likely candidates for laser vision correction ?
Patients of Myopia ( wearing minus glasses ) , Hypermetropia ( wearing plus glasses ) with or without astigmatism are suitable candidates for laser vision correction. In addition , the patient must have achieved 18+ age and his/her spectacle number must have remained stable for 6-12 months .
What types of eye glass numbers can be treated ?
We can treat :
(-) Minus numbers
(+) Plus numbers
& Cylindrical numbers
What are the different techniques for correcting eye glasses ?
Beyond using glasses and contact lenses , there are basically two different ways of correcting the number of glasses.
1. Laser Vision Correction popularly known as LASIK
2. ICL or Phakic Lenses
Are there more than one techniques of Laser vision correction ?
Yes , there are different techniques to correct glasses with Laser
1. PRK / LASEK / ASA
2. Microkeratome based LASIK
3. Bladefree LASIK
The choice of technique for a particular patient depends upon the suitability determined after assessing the various parameters of the eyes with Pentacam topography which tells us about the thickness of the cornea amongst many other details. Depending upon the number of your eye glasses and calculating it against the corneal thickness helps us deriving the technique(s) available for your eyes specifically .
Bladefree LASIK utilizes two different lasers for doing laser vision correction .
Bladefree Lasik workstation with the Femtosecond Laser on the left , the Excimer laser on the right and a swinging patient bed which shifts the patient between these two lasers.
What is ICL ?
If after detailed checking ,corneal thickness is inadequate to carry out Laser vision correction , then ICL phasic intraocular lens implantation is considered as the final frontier.
With the ICL , very high numbers can be corrected quite accurately. Here also we have to test the patient suitability for ICL implantation.
How long do I need to stay in the Hospital for Laser vision correction ?
For PRK you may need to stay for approximately 6 days
For Normal LASIK , approximately 3 days
For Bladefree LASIK , approximately 3 days.
Local patients can reside at home.

Conjunctivitis is a medical condition that is marked by redness in the eyes owing to the inflammation of the conjunctiva, which is the membrane covering the white part of the eye. The condition is further characterized by the discharge of yellowish pus fluid from the corner of the eye. This condition, which is essentially an infection, can occur to people of all age brackets.
Causes and Symptoms:
Conjunctivitis can be caused due to several reasons namely allergies, irritants, bacterial and viral infections, among others. Apart from the redness in the eye, some other apparent symptoms of conjunctivitis are:
- Thin and watery discharge in viral conjunctivitis
- Thick, mucous like discharge ranging from yellow to green in case of bacterial conjunctivitis
- Sticky eyelids
- Increased reactivity to light
- Blurred or foggy vision
- Nasal discharges
It is difficult to distinguish between viral, allergic and bacterial conjunctivitis. Different fields of medicine prescribe treatments according to the cause of the condition. Although subtle differences, such as thick and thin discharges can be observed, in Homeopathy the cause is not that important.
Homeopathic medicines are natural and highly effective. The medications, which are prescribed in Homeopathy can more than manage the discharges, swelling, the sandy sensation and redness in the eyes. Homeopathic medicines are effective when the condition causes the eye to get dry, red, congested and swollen. Bathing the eyes with sterilized salt water is also a popular method of treating the infection. In addition to these, Homeopathic doctors also provide tips to curb the likelihood of further complications. Removing your contact lenses while treatment and cleaning your spectacles on a regular basis, if you wear any, are duly recommended.
