Hello. 1.Diabetic eye disease comprises a group of eye conditions that affect people with diabetes. These conditions include diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema (DME), cataract, and glaucoma. 2.All forms of diabetic eye disease have the potential to cause severe vision loss and blindness. 3.Diabetic retinopathy involves changes to retinal blood vessels that can cause them to bleed or leak fluid, distorting vision. 4.Diabetic retinopathy is the most common cause of vision loss among people with diabetes and a leading cause of blindness among working-age adults. 5.DME is a consequence of diabetic retinopathy that causes swelling in the area of the retina called the macula. 6.Controlling diabetes—by taking medications as prescribed, staying physically active, and maintaining a healthy diet—can prevent or delay vision loss. 7.Because diabetic retinopathy often goes unnoticed until vision loss occurs, people with diabetes should get a comprehensive dilated eye exam at least once a year. 8.Early detection, timely treatment, and appropriate follow-up care of diabetic eye disease can protect against vision loss. 9.Diabetic retinopathy can be treated with several therapies, used alone or in combination. Diabetic retinopathy and DME are detected during a comprehensive dilated eye exam that includes: A.Visual acuity testing. This eye chart test measures a person’s ability to see at various distances. B.Tonometry. This test measures pressure inside the eye. C.Pupil dilation. Drops placed on the eye’s surface dilate (widen) the pupil, allowing a physician to examine the retina and optic nerve. D.Optical coherence tomography (OCT). This technique is similar to ultrasound but uses light waves instead of sound waves to capture images of tissues inside the body. OCT provides detailed images of tissues that can be penetrated by light, such as the eye. The retina problems due to diabetes can be treated with several therapies that may be used alone or in combination. (1) Anti-VEGF Injection Therapy. Anti-VEGF drugs are injected into the vitreous gel. (2) Focal/grid macular laser surgery. In focal/grid macular laser surgery, a few to hundreds of small laser burns are made to leaking blood vessels in areas of edema and bleeding. (3) Corticosteroids. Corticosteroids, either injected or implanted into the eye, may be used alone or in combination with other drugs or laser surgery to treat DME. Being a retina specialist, I do understand your problem. I would again remind you to keep the blood sugar strictly under control and avoid fluctuations of any sort. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care-regards

Dear lybrate user, red eyes could be because of many reasons but commonly it is due to allergy or infection. You need to visit eye specialist to differentiate between the two as the treatment is different. Also get your eyes checked for any glass power

The black dots you see are called floaters which can be seen normally in many people due to vitreous degeneration ( which is a physiological process). But if it increases to such an extent that it hampers your vision than it be pathological ( due to retinal pathology).so if it appears frequently you should get it examined Asap.

Depends on one's need of glasses. If you need glasses right from the time you wake up in the morning, then you will find LASIK a good option to remove your glass dependency.

This in most case is a normal occurence, direct staring at sunlight should not be done any which ways. Though this maybe abnormal if associated with flashes/floaters or a red eye. If thats the case you need an eye examination at the earliest.

I will suggest you to take flow of steam over the forehead when you have ear problem and redness of the eyes might be due to increased flow of blood while washing your face.

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 are few things you can take care of. Otherwise as such no options available which can increase your eyesight. You can also go for contact lens or refractive surgeries.

Hello, you should exercises for eye to strengthen the ocular muscles. These are as follows :- Warm your eyes. Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Repeat this three times. Roll your eyes. Start by looking up and then slowly circle 10 times clockwise and 10 times counterclockwise. Focus. Hold a pen at arm's length, focus your eyes on it, and slowly bring the pen closer until it's about 6 inches away from your nose. Then slowly move it back, keeping your eyes focused on the pen, 10 times in all. Massage your temples. Using your thumb knuckles, massage your temples in small circles, 20 times in one direction and 20 in the other. Repeat the same actions above the mid-point of the eyebrows at the forehead, then below the eyes on both sides of the bridge of the nose. Take a mini-nap. Put your head back, close your eyes, and relax for 3 minutes. 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 rather reducing the power of your eyes. Take Physostigma 6/ thrice daily for 1 month. Thereafter, revert back for further guidance.

Hello, lasik or lasik (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis), commonly referred to as laser eye surgery or laser vision correction, is a type of refractive surgery for the correction of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. The lasik surgery is performed by an ophthalmologist who uses a laser or microkeratome to reshape the eye's cornea in order to improve visual acuity. For most patients, lasik provides a permanent alternative to eyeglasses or contact lenses. After this surgery, risk of getting vision loss due to infection, dry eyes, higher order aberrations, halos, other complications are there. Costs will be told to you by your eye surgeon only.
