I used melalite under my eyes my eyes goes inside. And I got eye wrinkles please tell me what should I do now.
Kal night me 11: 30 bje soya tha n fir kya huaa ki raat ko 3 bje nind jagi aur ek right se aansu yaa pani jaisa aane lag gaya tha aur glass me dekha to right wali eye bahut hi jaida red red thi balki left wali thori thik thi .to fir wo red wali aankh thande water se dhoi bhi thi .fir bhi nind nhi aa rahi thi aur Jalan jaisa lag raha tha .fir half hour me dheere dheere nind aa gai aur fir mrng me bhi thora thora SA mehsus ho raha tha jo night me .abhi thik lag raha hai .to iska kya karan hai .sab thik hai na?
I have red eyes problem I can't sit in front of the computer for long time shall I get any eye drops for this. My eyes goes painting too I am facing this problem since last six months.
Is there any problem if he gets blurry vision while trying to focus on red LED lights such as those used in traffic lights?
If I will eat chicken or fried egg. After some time my eyes looking blurred and they get hot. What's my problem? And what should I have to do?
How to take care of my eyes? I don't have specs now. But now I am studying mechanical engg. Hence I have to do continuous work in workshop. There I continuously cone in contact with sparks from grinding machine, sparks from welding machine. Now I realise that due to this work I am suffering from continuous headache problem. 1) So please tell me how to face this problem? 2) Is it possible that incomplete sleep is also a reason for headache? 3) Please suggest some food also so that to minimize my problem?
A common headache can have a number of reasons behind it, such as defective vision, hetrophoria or convergence deficiency, etc. Now, the question arises as to how they can cause headache. Read on to know more...
Q. Why should defective vision cause headache?
To attain a perfect vision, eyes with defective vision have to make sustained extra efforts, which results in headache. Even if the refractive error is very small, it can be the cause of headache. More prolonged the working and smaller the print, higher the incidence of headache.
Q. Can this occur at all ages?
Yes, it can occur at all ages. However, with age, the resistance decreases and hence elderly people are more prone to get headache. More the use of computer, mobiles, TV or prolonged studies precipitates headache
Q What is Hetrophoria?
Normally, both eyes always remain parallel, but in some cases, eyes have slight tendency to develop minor squint, may be convergent or divergent. This is called Hetrophoria or Latent squint. Such patients have to take extra strain to keep the eyes straight
Q. What is convergence deficiency?
For reading, both eyes have to converge and if there is weakness of convergence, extra strain has to be put on the eyes, which cause headache.
Q. What is the ideal method of refraction in young patients, I,e below 40 years?
Ideal method is to dilate the pupil with Tropicasyl plus drops. This has the advantage that the doctor can see the retina and Optic Disc. This is important to exclude any involvement of brain as the cause of headache. It also relaxes accommodation and hence provides correct refraction. In cases of Hypermetropia, it is extremely essential to dilate the pupil.
Q. What is the role of Autorefractmeter (a computer) in refraction?
It is a very important instrument to provide correct refraction, but it cannot be totally relied upon. Some opticians rely on it and give wrong numbers.
Q. What is acceptance Test?
You have refracted the eyes with Autorefractmeter or Streak Retinoscope but exact power is what a patient accepts. This is very important.
Q. What is astigmatism?
There is a difference in refraction in different meridians and it is important that a cylinder number is prescribed in correct axis. This is a difficult task and needs lot of experience.
Q. Is it important to correct astigmatism?
To relieve headache and strain on the eyes, it is very important that exact cylinder is prescribed.
Q. What is the role of exact centring of Optical Lenses?
.You may give correct number, but if the centre of the Optical lenses and cornea do not coincide, satisfactory results are not obtained. To dispense correct lenses is a big art and the Optician must be qualified and well experienced.
Q. Does the quality of lens affect the visual comfort?
Yes, it is important that quality of lenses should be good, preferable fibre lenses which are Ant reflect coated. Crizal coating with capability to block the UV rays are very popular.
Conclusion: Refractive errors are important cause of headache and needs proper examination of the eyes, preferably after dilating the pupil. Astigmatic error even if too small may be the cause of headache. Spectacle dispensing is an art and a patient must select proper optician. Spectacles if advised for constant use must be used constantly to get full relief.
