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 24 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. If you are not comfortable with contact lens then go for lasik One thing I don't understand is how is this pair of glasses affecting your carrier? There are people in all fields who use glasses. please don't get disheartened.

Dear lybrate-user you need complete eye check up to know if there is real squint or sometimes there is apparent or pseudo squint. You need not worry about pseudo squint but if it is real squint then do not take lightly and get through eye check up. There are various types of squint and investigations are required. Some squints are corrected by glasses and eye exercises only others need surgery. If you need any clarification you can ask further.

I have low eye sight. So I want to do laser operation. Does laser treatment harms the eye or not?

I have low eye sight. So I want to do laser operation. Does laser treatment harms the eye or not?
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. We can do lasik anytime after age of 18 years. You need to undergo proper prelasik checkup to decide whether lasik is safe for you or not

Hi, I hope all the required tests have been performed to confirm glaucoma. If it is surely a case of glaucoma then you have to use the prescribed drops lifelong and go for regular follow up to your eye specialist. If you eye pressure is kept under control then you will not face any major eye problem.

I have red eye for 5 days. What should I do? Is it conjunctivitis or something else?

I have red eye for 5 days. What should I do? Is it conjunctivitis or something else?
Dear red eye has many causes. You have to see if it is associated with blurring of vision, pain, discharge and other complaints. But commonly its allergic or infective in origin ie allergic or infective conjunctivitis. Which has simple treatment protocol. But still its wise to see an ophthalmologist for a thorough slit lamp examination to rule out other differentials for acute red eye.

Hi, exposure to bright light or straining to see in dim light can also cause eye fatigue. One of the most common causes of eye fatigue is staring for long periods at digital devices such as: computer screens smartphones video games during sleep, the eyes are replenished with essential nutrients. Lack of sleep may result in persistent eye irritation. Prevention of eye fatigue usually eye fatigue can be prevented or reduced by making simple changes in your work habits or environment. Make changes to your computer screen, such as: place the screen 20-26 inches away from your eyes and a little below eye level. Regularly clean off dust and fingerprints from the screen. Smudges on the screen can reduce contrast and increase problems with glare and reflections. Choose screens that tilt and swivel. Consider using a glare filter over your screen. Make changes to your work environment, such as: change lighting to reduce glare and harsh reflections. Use an adjustable chair. Place a document holder next to your computer screen. Make changes to your work habits, such as: try the 20-20-20 rule. Every 20 minutes, look away about 20 feet in front of you for 20 seconds. Post a note that says" blink" on the computer as a reminder. Take regular breaks from computer work. Take care of your eyes with these steps: apply a washcloth soaked in warm water to tired, dry eyes (with eyes closed). Use artificial tears to refresh your eyes when they feel dry. To help prevent dry eyes while working indoors, use an air cleaner to filter dust and a humidifier to add moisture to the air. Management: give sufficient rest to your eyes with proper sleep. Keep yourself hydrated with intake of 10-12 glasses of water in a day. Eat healthy especially vitamin a rich food (green vegetables, carrots, yellow fruits and vegetables) and avoid junk food. Hold tap water in your flexed palm, dip your one eye closer to the water level, shut and open your eyelids often. Do the same with your other eye. Repeat this whole process 1-2 times more in a day. Give your eyes proper rest. Can keep slices of cucumber or potato or used tea bags over the closed eyes for sometime. Medication: instill 2 drops of euphrasia eye drops in each eye twice daily.

The solution for this problem is its reduced usage and while using computor use in proper light. There is nothing more effective than controlling usage to reduce and negate the effects. You can also reduce the intensity of the computor screen by attaching a filter or by getting an eye-friendly screen. Above all, one must try to reduce the amount of computor usage or take frequent breaks. Homoeopathic medicine CINELUBE EYE DROPS ( HAPDCO) Pour 2 drops 3 times daily.

Don't put water in the eyes it will change the constitution of tears. Just give icecold water splashes over closed eyes. Lubricant drops will help you if vision is clear it is ok otherwise go to refractionist for glasses prescription.

I presume she had a laser iridotomy. Sometimes these can close up with time and may need to be repeated. Best to get it checked by a specialist again. Regards.

Hello. Sorry about the trouble you are facing. Glasses do tend to cause discomfort to the person using them. Also, they take some time to adjust. I have a few suggestions and alternative options for you: (1) contact lens: you could try using contact lens only if you are sure about being able to maintain eye hygiene and proper protocol while using them. (2) if you are okay with using glasses try these few techniques. In the initial period, wear them for half an hour and remove them for 10 minutes. Again wear them for half an hour and discontinue for 10 minutes. This should be repeated so on. This will allow your eyes to get adjusted to the glasses. (3) use of lubricant eye drops: using a lubricant eye drop in the initial phase of glass use would enable your eyes to get some soothing effect. This would enable your eyes to be moist and prevent drying up of the eyes. (4) if you are totally uncomfortable with glasses despite of using them for sometime, you could consider refractive surgery (lasik) option to get rid of your power. This requires a thorough assessment by an eye specialist in person. If you satisfy the various criteria, you could undergo the refractive surgery. (5) get a good healthy, antioxidant rich diet. Try exercising daily for an hour and try certain meditation techniques. All these once done, are sure to help you in adapting to your glasses. For further assistance, feel free to communicate via the audio/ video facility offered by lybrate. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care-

Hello lybrate-user. Relasik depens upon thickness of your cornea and curvature of your cornea. I advice you to go for pentacam test (investigation to measure corneal curvature and thickness). If this test permits relasik can be done.
