My eye power is low doctor may I know how increase my eye power by taking healthy food?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)

My eye power is low 
 doctor may I know how increase my eye power by taking healthy food?
Diet for EYESIGHT Lutein and zeaxanthin are both important nutrients for eye health,6 as both of them are found in high concentrations in your macula—the small central part of your retina responsible for detailed central vision. More specifically, lutein is also found in your macular pigment – known for helping to protect your central vision and aid in blue light absorption—and zeaxanthin is found in your retina.Estimated daily dose of lutein is 10 mg per day, and at 2 mg/day for zeaxanthin. Both lutein and zeaxanthin are primarily found in green leafy vegetables, although zeaxanthin is far scarcer than lutein. Kale and spinach are two of the most lutein-rich foods, but you'll also find it in carrots, squash, and other orange and yellow fruits and vegetables. Both lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids called xanthophylls, which give plants and vegetables their yellow-orange color, and the name "lutein" comes from the Latin word "luteus," which means "yellow." If you remember this, it may help you pick out vegetables that are likely to contain higher amounts of these two nutrients. Egg yolk is another source of both lutein and zeaxanthin that is well absorbed by your body Most of the dark green leafy vegetables, previously recommended for a higher intake of lutein and zeaxanthin, have 15-47 percent of lutein, but a very low content (0-3 percent) of zeaxanthin. study shows that fruits and vegetables of various colors can be consumed to increase dietary intake of lutein and zeaxanthi It is also important to note that lutein is an oil-soluble nutrient, so if you eat the vegetables without some oil or butter your body can't absorb the lutein. Adding a little bit of healthy fat, such as olive oil, coconut oil, or raw organic butter, will maximize your lutein absorption. Lutein content in food Food Mg / serving Orange ( Raw) 0.2/1 large Egg 0.2/1 large Spinach (cooked) 20.4 / 1 cup Papaya(Raw) 0.3/1 large Turnip greens (cooked) 12.2 / 1 cup Green peas (cooked) 4.1 / 1 cup Spinach (raw) 3.7 / 1 cup Corn (cooked) 1.5 / 1 cup Broccoli (raw) 1.3 / 1 cup Broccoli (cooked) 0.8 / 1/2 cup Green beans (cooked) 0.9 / 1 cup

I have problem in my eyes while in sunlight or artificial light? Suggest diagnosis.

I have problem in my eyes while in sunlight or artificial light? Suggest diagnosis.
It is a normal phenomenon to get irritated eyes after exposure to sunlight/artificial light unless and until you do not feel au pain, redness or watering eyes. If you do not have any problem watching tv/computer, proves that you are not suffering from photophobia. So I will advise you to use dark glasses while going in sunlight or while driving at night--------------------- homoeopathic eyedrops--------------- cinelube eyedrops (hapdco) pour 2 drops 3 times daily esp. Night before sleep.

Hello lybrate-user, discontinue contact lenses and get an appointment with an eye clinic as soon as possible. Redness and pain in contact lens users might be a corneal problem which should not be left unattended at any cost.

Hello Doctor recently I done eye operation of glaucoma past 2 months back present I'm normal now can I drink alcohol.
Hello lybrate-user. Alcohol has shown to increase the eye pressure. You already have been diagnosed with glaucoma. I would suggest you to refrain (avoid) from drinking alcohol for at least 6 months. Also avoid tobacco chewing or cigarette smoking. Take care.

You have a refractive error which when corrected to the power that you have mentioned helps you to visualise properly.Similarly with squint though it is a medical condition but not a permanent impairment and also it can be surgically corrected hence it cannot be termed as partial handicap or physical handicap.Therefore it is unlikely that such a certificate can be issued.However you can also check the rules mentioned in your state for qualifying for a status of handicap.This should help you to decide for further. Thanks.

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 17 years so your number might increase a little 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 after age of 18 yrs.

Is it just the squint problem you have in the eye or the blurred vision also? If there is blurred vision in that eye, then you should know that you will never get the clear vision that you have in the good eye coz it's too late to start therapy for that. Now regarding the squint, it can be corrected. Please meet a good squint/occuloplasty surgeon.
