Try to increase your sleeping time or try to take short naps to refresh yourself. You can also use used greentea bags (cold) on your eyes for good result and take a healthy diet.

Dear:- you have started contact lens wearing recently. Insertion of cl: the moistened cl is placed on tip of right finger, & brought to eye, while the lids r retracted and eye gazes steadily at approaching cl until it is applied gently to cornea. When in position the upper lid is released first & then lower lid. Removal of cl: the eye is opened widely so that lid margins r beyond edge of lens. Index finger is placed at outer can nothus possibly touching sclera & with firm pressure backward stretches the skin & therewith the lid laterally. The taught lids expel lens which will either dislocate on to lashes or on to waiting hand.

You have got simple myopia. You require glasses to correct your refractive error. However, if you don't wish to wear glasses you can go in for contact lenses or any refractive procedure to correct your myopia. But you need to consult a refractive surgeon for that and undergo a battery of investigations.

Which is the best inta ocular lens for cataract? and what precautions we have to take after surgery and for how many days?

Phaco Development Program, Fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology, DNB Ophtalmology, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Mysore
Best lens in the market is a very controversial topic. It depends upon your needs and condition. It is very vast to explain in this platform better to discuss the pros and cons with your doctor, precautions to be taken (assuming that you will undergo cataract by phaco technique) 1. You should avoid eating very hard/chewy things for about a week. 2. You must avoid headbaths / swimming / water sports for atleast 2 weeks 3. Use medications that have been prescribed to you as instructed by our doctor. 4. Avoid dust. 5. Visit your doctor whenever he advises you to.

Things You Must Know About Your Eye Doctor!

M.S. Ophthalmology
Ophthalmologist, Vadodara
Things You Must Know About Your Eye Doctor!

It is very essential in the present times to understand the training, ability and skills of the doctors whom you select for your needs.

An Eye Doctor is called an Ophthalmologist. He/she can possess following qualifications

  1. M.S (Ophth) : This is called Master Of Surgery in Ophthalmology. It takes Three years of training in a Medical Council recognized Medical College after passing M.B;B.S and includes undertaking and submission of a thesis or research Paper during the training. It can be done by obtaining seat based on Merit, Based on reservation or Based on Donation

  2. D.O (Ophth) : This is called Diploma in Ophthalmology. It is similar to M.S. except that training period is TWO years and does NOT include doing research paper

  3. DNB (Ophth): This is called Diplomat of National Board in ophthalmology. The training is done after M.B;B.S in some private institutes or hospitals recognized by National board of examinations and not in MCI recognized Medical college

Long Term Fellowships:  As the knowledge base is increasing, there is further training undertaken for super specializing in some specific field of eye surgery through a process called FELLOWSHIP. This includes training for about two years after M.S., D.O or D.N.B in some Institues of repute like Shankar Nethralaya Chennai, Aravind Eye Care Systems ( Madurai/ Coimbatore), L.V.Prasad Eye Institute ( Hyderabad) to name a few. The training involves doing actual work in specialized techniques under supervision and guidance of experts in respective fields like Retina, Cornea, Glaucoma, Oculoplasty, Phaco and Refractive Surgery, Paediatric Ophthalmology, Neurophthalmology etc.

Short Term Fellowships: They are similar to long term fellowships but training period is very short , like 2-3 months . The training helps a general ophthalmologist to acquire some skills in a speciality but not sufficient to be able to be a super specialist. However, some doctors with such training may claim to be superspecialists!

ACEDEMIC FELLOWSHIPS: Such fellowships test the knowledge of Doctor through two or three steps of examinations/ Viva. There is no practical training given Examples are,

FRCS: Fellow of Royal College of Surgeons

FICO: Fellow of International Council of Ophthalmologists

FAICO: Fellow of All India Collegium of Ophthalmologists

Some senior Ophthalmologists who were trained in multiple eye diseases and worked for a long time in handling them may be as good as superspecialists in some areas.

Besides Ophthalmologists, some trained personnel can undertake some eye care tasks like

Optometrists: They can assess and prescribe Spectacle power(numbers), prescribe and dispense contact lenses, run some eye tests on machines.

Opticians: They can make/ sell glasses or contact lenses as prescribed by Ophthalmologists/ optometrists. They can not prescribe. Yet, many shops do so without Optometrists.

Ophthalmic Technicians: They can operate machines like Perimetry, OCT, A scan ultrasonography, Topography etc.

Hope that now the readers are better informed about their eye care providers. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ophthalmologist.

I am having squint in my left eye, Is it possible to correct it through a laser surgery/other?

FICO, DNB Ophtalmology
Ophthalmologist, Gandhinagar
I am having squint in my left eye, Is it possible to correct it through a laser surgery/other?
Hello lybrate-user. Squint of the eye has multiple causes associated with it. Let me enumerate them in brief: (1) significant difference in the refractive error (glasses power) between both eyes. (2) injury to the eye. (3) cataract/ opacity of the lens in one eye (in pediatric age group specifically). (4) eye having undergone surgery would have the possibility of getting deviated with time. (5) long standing retinal problem in an eye. (6) amblyopia/ lazy eye. It would be possible to correct squint with surgery. This would not be a laser surgery. Also, you must understand the fact that there is a chance that the squint would recur after surgical correction. The duration between the surgery and recurrence could be variable.

Unfortunately there are no natural medications to remove spectacles permanently. You can either try contact lenses or plan for refractive lasik laser surgery.
