I am suffering from colour blindness is there is any medicine for it? Or there is any yoga to cure it for a bit?
There is no known treatment. However, there are special contact lenses and glasses that may help people with color blindness tell the difference between similar colors. Color blindness is a lifelong condition. Most people are able to adjust to it without difficulty or disability. Homoeopathic medicine SANTONINE 3X ( Dr Reckeweg) Chew 2 tab twice daily for 3 months. If the color blindness is partial ie. If one pigment is missing then the above homoeopathic medicine is very useful in that case as seen in my general practise.I will advise you ,that what ever is your condition,you should start taking this medicine.Purely homoeopathic,noside effects.

How did we have to increase our eyesight when there is 1.75 less of right and left eye.

How did we have to increase our eyesight when there is 1.75 less of right and left eye.
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 21 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.

Is that pain associated with redness, diminution of vision or any other symptoms? if yes then it's of infective origin. Else if none of these present and you are using /not using glasses in either case get your refraction done. May be the number might have changed. If your vision is normal, you have to go for orthoptic checkups which may be probable cause for asthenopic symptoms.

Get to know about BLADE FREE LASIK , STANDARD LASIK , ADVANCED SURFACE PRK and PHAKIC ICLS . These are the techniques that can help you gain freedom form your glasses.

If you are using glasses, are 18 years or older , have to wear glasses and wish to seek treatment for your glasses , you need to read on.


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.

Our Daily energy requirements for proper functioning of our body is 1600-2200 K cal of Energy if we want to remain fit and healthy.But there is a misconception that weight is reduced by dieting.But weight is not reduced by only skipping our meals or prohibition from sugars but until we are not aware what are our body energy requirements ,it will be difficult to loose weight.If we restrict ourself from taking daily diet to 1100-1200 Kcalories ,and increases our workouts,only then we can think about reducing our weight and for that we must obtain proper knowledge of exact energy levels in a particular dish we are eating,only then we can achieve our target of reducing weight by means of simple mathematical calculation. Diet Plan for Weight Loss (1200 calories) Food Item Amount Calories (kcal) Protein (g) Early Morning Lukewarm water with lemon 1 cup Tea (without sugar) 1 cup 35 4 Marie biscuits 2 56 Breakfast Skimmed milk with sugar 1 glass 90 8 Brown bread upma 1 plate 205 6 OR Besan Chilla 2 290 12 Mid-Morning Fruit salad 1 small bowl 40 Lunch Veg Khichdi 1 medium bowl 202.5 9.5 Veg raita 1 small bowl 75 3.5 Mix veg salad 1 bowl 30 2 Evening Tea (without sugar) 1 cup 35 4 Wheat rusk 2 120 6 Dinner Missi roti (without oil) 2 200 6 Mix veg 1 medium bowl 95 4 Curd 1 small bowl 30 1.5 Total 1213 kcal 54.5 g 10 INDIAN FOODS FOR WEIGHT LOSS 1] Flax seeds: – Our diet plan for weight loss will not be complete without flax seeds. flax seeds are grown in northern and central parts of India and have been a part of the staple local diet since centuries. Flax seeds have been enjoying the attention of dieters all over the world Role In weight loss diet – • Lignans – the lignans and fiber in flax seeds helps in reaching early satiety (the feeling of fullness). This helps you in cutting down on your food intake. Flax seeds also help in weight loss by keeping you full for longer time. The glycemic index of flax seeds is very less, and hence when you add grounded flax seeds to your yogurt or sprinkle it over your salad, it gets absorbed slowly and keeps your blood sugar stable for longer and you do not feel hungry early. • Lecithin – Flax seeds contain lecithin. Lecithin helps in breaking the fat from the food and the fiber in the flax seeds helps in carrying these fats to the intestine for elimination. And thus saves you from absorbing most of the calories these fats were to provide you with. • Fiber – The soluble and insoluble fiber in flax seeds makes it a natural laxative. Flax seeds help in cleansing your intestine of the metabolic wastes produced during fat break down while you are on a weight loss regime. Flax seeds help in promoting the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut and thus helping in better digestion. • Omega 3 – As we all know, Omega 3 helps in improving heart health. Hence flax seeds are especially good for those who have diabetes and blood pressure or any other heart problem and want to manage their weight. Tips to include flax seeds in diet plan for weight loss : • Use freshly ground flax seed powder to sprinkle over your yogurt / curd bowl, salads, whole wheat flour dough, dals and on your vegetable preparations too. * Precaution – while using flax seeds powder, ground flax seeds freshly. The oils in flax seeds powder undergo oxidation quickly when exposed to air. • Use roasted flax seeds to make accompaniments like chutneys. • You can take a tsp of flax seeds and eat on empty stomach in the mornings. 2] Curd: – Curd is an inseparable part of a vegetarian diet for weight loss. If I tell you that you can consume more calories and still lose weight, you will think I am joking. But this is for true.

It improves digestion and immunity and ensures better nutrient absorption. These probiotics helps in weight loss too. Although yogurt alone cannot bring about weight loss, but if you are already following a weight loss regime for diet and exercises, curd will help you in achieving your weight loss goals faster and then maintaining them in the long run. • Protein – The protein present in curd facilitates the weight loss process by becoming the source of energy as well as taking care of the ill effects of strict dieting. It will help in prevention of hair fall and dullness and dryness of skin. So that your skin glows while you shape up your body. Tips to include yogurt in Indian diet plan for weight loss – • You can have a cup of plain, low fat yogurt before or after your meal. • You can mix a fruit and flavor curd / yogurt and have it as a mid meal snack. • You can use curd as a dressing for your simple salads. • You can make buttermilk out of curd and drink it in between the meals whenever hungry or thirsty.

This will indirectly help in improving immunity and stamina so that you can work out better and burn more calories. Lycopene also helps you in becoming healthier as you lose weight , It helps you reduce the bad cholesterol from the blood vessels and improves your heart health too. • Oligofructose – After a fatty meal, the small intestine releases a Hormone called CCK (cholecyctokinin) in the stomach. CCK tightens the valves between stomach and intestine contributing to feeling of fullness and helps in reducing the chances of over eating. Oligofructose in tomatoes helps in sustaining this feeling of fullness for longer • Carnitine – Tomatoes contain Carnitine that speeds up the process of fat break down in the body. Tips to include Tomatoes in Indian diet plan for weight loss– • You can use tomatoes in your salads before both the main meals. • You can add tomatoes to your juices • Have tomato soups or add tomatoes to your vegetable based soups.

It helps in burning up extra calories from the body by raising the body’s temperature. • Piperine – In some scientific studies done over mouse, it was found that piperine in black pepper help in preventing the formation of new fat cells in the body.

As mentioned above, have a bowl of yogurt / curd, skimmed milk and paneer (cottage cheese). • Increase your fluid intake. Have a lot of soups, fruit juices (without adding sugar), coconut water, buttermilk, milk, and plain water. Consuming fruits with a lot of water content like water melons are of help too. • Change your cooking methods. Give up on deep frying and use microwave or air fryer, replace frying with grilling and steaming or cook in microwave. These would help in cutting down on a lot of calories. • Understand the reason behind your weight. If your weight is attributed due to hormonal issues, diet alone cannot help you in weight loss. You will need to take medical support as well. If sedentary lifestyle is the reason behind your weight, exercising will be equally important as is dieting.

Improve your eyesight -  5 Top foods to eat

Good eyesight can be an outcome of a diet rich in Omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin C. Including certain foods in your diet can be directly beneficial for your eye health and can improve your vision. Here is a list of 5 foods which will help you combat age-related vision problems and will supplement your overall eye health.

1. Eggs - Eggs are rich in vitamin A and lutein, which help you combat age-related vision problems and night blindness. Eggs are also beneficial for dry eyes and improving your eye health. Egg yolks are considered to be one of the best foods for your eyes and should be included in your regular diet. It also helps prevent age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which is one of the primary causes of blindness in the 60+ age group.

2. Leafy Greens - Leafy green vegetables like spinach and kale are rich in lutein and zeaxanthin which reduce the chance of cataracts. It is best to consume them raw as they have more antioxidants when uncooked. Other green vegetables like broccoli, collard greens, and zucchini are rich in lutein and play an important part in preventing age-related vision problems.

3. Carrots - Carrots improve your overall eye health as it contains vitamin A, the lack of which is one of the leading causes of loss of vision. The orange hue in carrots is due to Beta-carotene which helps the retina function better. Other foods rich in beta carotene are apricots, mangoes, pumpkin and cantaloupe which also contribute to healthy eyes. So make sure you include them in your diet.

4. Almonds - Almonds are rich in vitamin E, which prevents macular degeneration. Include a handful in your daily diet as it not only improves your eyesight but also effectively lowers cholesterol and prevents heart diseases. Nuts like pistachios and walnuts contain omega 3 fatty acids which contribute to the maintenance of your vision.

5. Citrus Fruits and Berries - Citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruits and lemons are rich vitamin C which reduces the risk macular degeneration and cataracts. Blueberries also aid in the protection of the retina from damage caused due to sunlight and oxygen.

Sir, if you have some irritaion in the eye, it is more likely that you might sustained foreign body injury to your eye. Just wash your eyes thoroughly to remove the debris as much possible and then get it extracted from an ophthalmologist.

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. You need to undergo proper prelasik checkup which includes a test called as topography to decide whether lasik is safe for you or not.
