I have sight on both eye. How can I reduce my sight. Can I do any surgery. Please suggest me.
Hello, sight in medical terms is refractive error. Options of treatment are 1. Glasses 2. Contact lens 3. Lasik surgery lasik surgery is almost like permanent treatment. Wait till 20 years of age or have a regular follow up with a lasik surgeon, when you be eligible for surgery you can undergo. If you are not eligible for lasik other options are epi-lasik or icl.

My two eyes are getting red and legs are swelling too much any solutions suggest me.
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.

My eye glasses​ power are-R (-1.75), L (-1.25). Sometime I feel pain on my left eye leap.
Your power is not much & your age is less than 21 yrs, you should get your eye checked up & if needed change your glass .If there is no change of glass then it might be due to dryness & you should use Systane ultra eye drops 5-6 times daily to get immediate relief.

While working on laptop my eyes start burning and this is usually happening, please help.
Prolonged working on laptop/TV can cause computer vision syndrome. Computer vision syndrome is a condition resulting from focusing the eyes on a computer or other display device for, uninterrupted periods of time. Some symptoms of cvs include headaches, blurred vision, neck pain, redness in the eyes, fatigue, eye strain, dry eyes, irritated eyes. These symptoms can be further aggravated by improper lighting conditions. Measures to reduce this include work under proper light. r. Blink a lot. Cold compresses and use good lubricating eyedrop. I would advise you to maintain good posture while working on computer. Keep your back n neck straight and in perfect alignment and also buy a chair which can support your back when you work on computer.

Eye Flu Treatment in hindi - आँखो के फ्लू का इलाज

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)

Eye Flu Treatment in hindi - आँखो के फ्लू का इलाज

हमारी की आँखे शरीर का सबसे अधिक आकर्षण वाला हिस्सा ही नही बल्कि सबसे खास अंग भी है। हमारे शरीर में इनका महत्व तभी तक है जब तक आपकी आँखों की दृष्टि सही सलामत है, दृष्टि एक ऐसा माध्यम है, जिसकी मदद से मनुष्य प्रकाश किरणों की संवेदना, चीजों का स्वरूप, दूरी, रंग आदि को महसूश करता है। आँखों का देखभाल करना उतना ही जरुरी है जितना की शरीर के अन्य भागो का, और अगर आप इनके साथ जरा सी भी लापरवाही बरतेंगे तो आपकी खूबसूरत आँखे खराब हो सकती हैं।

क्या है कंजंक्टिवाइटिस
कंजक्टिवाइटिस या ऑय फ्लू जिसे हम आँख आने के नाम से जानते है एक आम संक्रमण हैं जिसका सामना हम सभी ने कभी न कभी किया होगा। इस संक्रमण में आंखों में जलन होती है। मगर इस समस्या के होने पर क्या करना चाहिए तथा कैसे बचाव करना चाहिए ये कम ही लोग जानते और समझते हैं। आँखों के संक्रमण के कई कारण हो सकते हैं, पर इनके मुख्य कारण होते हैं छोटे जीवाणु और वायरस से हुआ संक्रमण। आमतौर पर यह एक एलर्जिक रिएक्शन की वजह से होता है। लेकिन कई मामलों में बैक्टीरिया का संक्रमण भी इसके लिए जिम्मेदार होता है। कभी कभी ऐसे संक्रमण आँखों में कुछ चले जाने की वजह से होते हैं जैसे धुल या गन्दगी। जो लोग खराब लेंस पहनते हैं उनके भी इस संक्रमण के शिकार होने की संभावना काफी ज़्यादा रहती है। इस संक्रमण की शुरुआत एक आंख से ही होती है, लेकिन जल्द ही दूसरी आंख भी इसकी चपेट में आ जाती है।
आँखों का संक्रमण या ऑय फ्लू साधारणतः मौसम में परिवर्तन के साथ देखा जाता है। यह ठंड मौसम या बरसात के मौसम में ज्यादातर होता है | यह एक फैलने वाली बीमारी है, जो किसी भी व्यक्ति को हो सकता है। एक बार यह किसी को हो जाता है, तो उसके आस पास रहने वाले लोगो में भी फैलने लगता है। आँखों में इन्फेक्शन होने पर आँख पहले गहरे पीले रंग के दीखते है फिर कुछ समय बाद आँखों का रंग बदल कर लाल हो जाता है।

कंजंक्टिवाइटिस के लक्षण 

  • आँखे लाल होना 
  • आँखों में खुजली होना
  • आँखों से धुधला दिखाई देना 
  • आँखों से पानी आना 
  • आँखों में दर्द होना 
  • शुरुआत में यह लक्षण एक आँख में नजर आते हैं और एहतियात या ईलाज न करने पर दुसरे आँख में भी फ़ैल सकता हैं। कंजंक्टिवाइटिस के गंभीर अवस्था में कुछ रोगियों के आँख से खून भी निकल सकता हैं।
  • आँखों से हरा या सफ़ेद चिपचिपा द्रव निकलने से पलके चिपकना एक बड़ा लक्षण है कंजंक्टिवाइटिस होने का।
  • धुप या तेज रोशनी के प्रति असंवेदनशीलता जिसे फोटोफोबिया भी कहा जाता हैं।

ध्यान दें

  • यदि आपको कंजंक्टिवाइटिस हो गया है तो इसका घरेलू इलाज करने से पहले इन बातों का विशेष ध्यान रखना जरूरी है। ऑय फ्लू में सही इलाज तभी संभव है जब कुछ सावधानियां बरती जाए 
  • किसी व्यक्ति से हाथ नहीं मिलाना चाहिए।
  • आंखों को हाथ से नहीं रगड़ना चाहिए।
  • यदि बच्चों के आंख में हो गया हो, तो उसे स्कूल नहीं भेजना चाहिए।
  • आंखों को तीन-चार बार गुनगुने पानी से धोना चाहिए।
  • तीन-चार दिन रोगी को आराम करना चाहिए।
  • किसी दूसरे को तौलिया, रुमाल इस्तेमाल नहीं करना चाहिए

कंजंक्टिवाइटिस का इलाज

1. गुलाब जल 
गुलाब के जल से आँख को धोने से आँखों का इन्फेक्शन कम हो जाता है। गुलाब के जल की दो बूंद आँखों में लगाये और इसे रोजाना दिन में दो बार करने से कंजंक्टिवाइटिस की समस्या खत्म कर सकते है।
2. गर्म पानी 
हलके गर्म पानी के इस्तेमाल से आँख को धोने से आँखों के ऊपर जमने वाले गंदगी हट जाती है। गर्म पानी को किसी बर्तन में निकाल कर हल्का ठंडा कर ले और उस हलके गर्म पानी से आप सीधे अपने आँखों को धो भी सकते है, जिससे आँख में जमी धुल गंदगी बाहर आ जाएगी। 
3. आंवले का रस
3 से 4 आंवले के फल के गूददे को पिस कर उसका रस निकाल ले। एक ग्लास पानी में उस रस को मिला कर पिये। आंवले के रस को सुबह खाली पेट में और रात में सोने से पहले दिन में दो बार इस्तेमाल करे । आँखों में संक्रमण होने पर आंवले का रस पीने से भी लाभ मिलता है।

4. शहद और  पानी का उपयोग
एक ग्लास पानी में 2 चम्मच शहद को मिला ले। फिर उस जल को अपने हांथो से तेज झटके के साथ खुली आँखों में मारे।  शहद से आँखों को धोने से आंखों का संक्रमण दूर होता है। 

5. पालक और गाजर का रस
पालक के 4 या 5 पत्तो को पिस ले और उसका रस निचोड़ ले। 2 गाजर को भी पिस कर रस निकाल ले। एक ग्लास में आधे कप पानी भर ले और उसमे गाजर और पालक के रस को मिला कर पीये। ऐसा रोजाना करने से आंख की संक्रमण कम होने लगता है। पालक और गाजर का रस आँखों के संक्रमण के लिए काफी लाभदायक होता है क्योकि इनमे पाए जाने वाले विटामिन आँखों के लिए काफी महत्वपूर्ण होते है। 

6. हल्दी और गर्म पानी
2 चम्मच हल्दी के पाउडर को 2 से 3 मिनट तक गर्म करे। एक ग्लास गर्म पानी में उस हल्दी को मिला दे। रुई की मदद से आँखों को साफ़ करे। गर्म पानी में हल्दी को मिलाकर रुई से आँखों को पोछना चाहिए। 
7. आलू
  एक आलू को अच्छे से पतले–पतले टुकड़ों में काट ले। रात में सोने से पहले उस कटे हुए आलू को अपने आँखों के ऊपर 10 मिनट तक लगा कर रखे फिर उसे उतार दें। आलू में स्टार्च अधिक मात्रा में होता है जिसके इस्तेमाल से आँखों के संक्रमण को ठीक किया जा सकता है।

What are the precautions for short tightness. Give me the complete details of LASIK laser treatment thank you.
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

Hello, you should take ruta 30 ch, 3 drops twice daily. Take 10mlamla juice daily. Take 1 tsp of triphla ghrit, with milk once daily. Do the below given exercises to strengthen your eye muscles. 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.

I am suffering from the redness on eyes due to laser operation now I wants to remove its redness what should be done?

I am suffering from the redness on eyes due to laser operation now I wants to remove its redness what should be done?
Redness of the eyes has multiple causes associated with it. To enumerate a few common causes: (1)Allergy of the eye. It is usually caused by improper eye hygiene. There is a tendency to rub the eyes with fingers, handkerchief, cloth, etc. This is not a good habit because it tends to transmit lots of virus, bacteria and dust into the eye. Allergy usually presents with symptoms of watering (clear water), redness and itching of the eye. (2)Infectious conjunctivitis : this is usually associated with white-yellowish discharge. If so, it would be a good idea to go and show to an eye specialist in person. (3)Foreign body lodged in the eye. This is more commonly associated with people who drive 2 wheeler vehicles without protection. It occurs more commonly in one eye. Foreign bodies that commonly get lodged are eyelashes, insect wings, small insects, dust particles, iron particles(more common with people working in the iron industry) The solution for a foreign body lodged in the eye would be better provided by an eye specialist AT THE CLINIC. (4)Raised intraocular pressure: This is a condition known as glaucoma. it is not so common as the previous mentioned conditions. There is usually associated pain in the eyes. It is commonly bilateral(occurs in both eyes). There is usually a positive family history of glaucoma associated in a majority of the cases. (5)Inflammation of the coats of the eyeball. This is known as "uveitis". It is also a relatively less common condition. There is associated pain. It would require a thorough eye checkup including the retina-thus a good idea would be to visit the eye specialist in person. IF YOU HAVE REDNESS AFTER THE LASER PROCEDURE FOR YOUR EYES, IT IS LIKELY TO BE TRANSIENT AND GO AWAY IN A FEW DAYS. STILL, IT WOULD BE A BETTER IDEA TO CONSULT YOUR EYE SPECIALIST AND GET THE EYES EXAMINED. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care, regards-Dr. Chaitanya.

Contact Lens Discomfort - What to Do

Cornea Cataract & Lasik
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
Contact Lens Discomfort - What to Do

There are many reasons why we are required to wear glasses or contact lenses including poor vision, far sightedness, inward eyelids and a variety of other conditions. These contact lenses have to cleaned, worn and stored properly so as to avoid complications in the eyes. Contact lens discomfort includes symptoms like redness, puffiness, swelling, itching, watering and burning of the eyes along with cloudy vision and pain.

If you are facing contact lens discomfort, here is what you will need to do:

  • Cleanliness: The first thing to do when you face even a slight discomfort is to check your lenses properly. You will have to ensure that you clean your contact lenses before and after use, especially if they are not the disposable kind. Yet, any discomfort can point at the fact that there may be some contaminants and infectants lurking around on the surface. Ensure that you clean the lenses again and then wear them. You must make sure that your hands are clean when you are handling them and that you are not using a lint ridden towel to dry them off as this lint can easily get onto the surface of the lenses and cause severe itching, irritation and burning.
  • Make Up: Have you used your make up before wearing your contact lenses? Then chances are that you have transferred some of that makeup onto the lenses while wearing them. This makeup can get trapped in the lenses and cause severe discomfort. So remember to apply your makeup only after you have worn your lenses, and remove the makeup only after you have removed the lenses so that you avoid any discomfort.
  • Type of Contact Lenses: Prolonged discomfort and pain may point at the fact that your contact lenses are less than ideal for you. You may want to book an appointment with your ophthalmologist in order to check the lens fit and size as well as the material of the lens, as unbeknownst to us, we may be allergic to certain material. Find out whether you need a hard or a soft material or if the soft disposable lenses have some elements that are not suiting your eyes and skin.
  • Environmental Factors: You may also want to check with your doctor about conditions like humidity and heat as well as harsh winters and rain in case your contact lenses are causing problems for you. The doctor may be able to change the contact lenses as per the weather conditions so that you are more comfortable.

Tear film stability and dryness of the eye should also be checked before wearing a certain type of contact lens. If you wish to discuss about any specific eye problem, you can consult a specilized opthamologist and ask a free question.
