Hi, yes, you need to wear spectacles while studying or working on computer/ laptop or smart phones, etc. Where eyes gets strained. Visit any reliable sources and get made an anti-glare coating to reduce eyestrain.

your message is a little confusing, but, you seems to have multiple problems more, and since you do not use glasses regularly, you are developing eyestrain.May I suggest you to have a complete eye checkup to rule out all causes for eyestrain and also dryness in your eyes.

hello nishu...there is nothing to worry....there is continuous production of tears in our eyes..and that water goes from eye to nose from lacrimal pathway. now 80% of this transport is from lower puncta and 20% from upper puncta...as ur lower puncta is blocked...so upper puncta is doing its work....it usually starts working more but sometimes insufficient to transport whole water that is produced.....there is no indication for surgery except when patient demands surgery (like in ur case as ur upper puncta is not sufficent to transport whole water)

The causes of pain are - allergies, inflammation of eyelids, contact lens problem, corneal abrasion, blocked tear duct, dry eyes, foreign object in eye, pink eye, stye, chalazion, ectropion, entropion, cluster headache, injury, iritis, etc. So, will have to rule out any of these possibilities and as per that can give you treatment.

Wearing and Caring for Your Contact Lenses

Cornea Cataract & Lasik
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
Wearing and Caring for Your Contact Lenses

There are a number of eye conditions that make the use of glasses and eye lenses mandatory for a more comfortable life where your vision is as normal as is medically possible. Poor eyesight and conditions like inward eyelids and others can lead to the prescription of contact lenses and glasses. Contact lenses are delicate optical tools that glide easily over your eyes and need a lot of care. One should also know how to wear them properly. If one does not wear and care for the contact lenses properly, it may lead to a variety of complications.

Read on to know how you can take better care of your contact lenses:

  • Cleanliness: To begin with, keeping the lenses clean is of utmost importance. Since these lenses will go on to the eye and remain there for most part of the day, it is imperative that they should be clean so that no dirt comes to settle on the eye to cause complications and even possible infections in the long run. While the disposable soft contact lenses do not need a whole lot of care as they can be disposed as and when the wearer needs a new pair, the soft lenses are the ones that need regular care so as to avoid vision affecting problems in the long run.
  • Clean Hands: Before you handle the contact lenses, you must wash and clean your hands thoroughly with a non cosmetic soap that is free of additives like fragrances and artificial perfumes, oils and other lotions. These may get transferred to the lens which will leave you with blurry vision. Dry your hands properly using a lint free towel.
  • Makeup: If you have to wear makeup, we would suggest doing so after you have safely installed the contact lenses in your eyes. Also, you must remember to remove your lenses before you begin the makeup removal procedure. This is to be done so that you do not get any makeup on to the delicate surface of the lens.
  • Disinfecting Solution: When you buy your contact lenses, you will also get a disinfecting solution as well as a set of instructions for taking care of your lenses. So ensure that you use the correct disinfecting solution, eye drops as well as the prescribed enzymatic cleaners to keep your lenses clean and free of germs with a light rubbing action. Let the lenses stand in this solution at night too so that the germs cannot travel to the surface.

Never use tap water or your mouth to clean these lenses as the microorganisms found even in distilled water can latch on to the surface.

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 20 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. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik. Power of your glasses is very small. You need not to worry.

For computer use: You have something called as computer vision syndrome. So take frequent breaks while you are working Every 20-25 mins take break to look away from screen Blink more frequently' Level of screen should be below the level of eyes Ac should not blow directly on your face. Also get your eyes checked for any spectacle power For mobile use: Here are seven super quick and easy ways to give your eyes a break during your all those smartphone marathon sessions. 1. Blink, blink and blink again. Blinking often (and for more than a second) keeps your eyes moist and reduces dryness and irritation. We tend blink about a third less than we normally would when we stare at our smartphone screens, which starves our poor peepers of protective tears. Keep your eyes wet by blinking about 10 times every 20 minutes or so and you should be good to go. 2. Minimize glare. Unless you have a smartphone equipped with anti-glare Corning Gorilla Glass or use a matte screen protector film, you’re probably coping with a fair amount of annoying reflective glare. 3. Take breaks. Follow 20-20-20 rule. The concept is to take a break from looking at your screen every 20 minutes for 20 seconds while looking at something 20 feet away. Doing so relaxes your eye muscles 4. Adjust your brightness. Having your screen too bright or too dark stresses your eyes out and can cause problems maintaining focus. To eliminate either issue in about a matter of seconds, simply go into your smartphone settings and adjust your screen brightness so it’s about the same as the light level in the environment around you 5. Tweak your text size and contrast. Adjusting your smartphone text contrast and size also provides a little much-needed relief. 6. Keep a clean screen. Routinely wipe down your smartphone screen with a dry (not wet!) cleaning cloth to remove distracting dust, grime, smudges and fingerprints. 7. Hold your smartphone farther away. Try holding yours at least 16 to 18 inches away from your eyes to give your eyes a break.

Hello lybrate-user. Let me enumerate the diet necessary for healthy eyes. (1) green leafy vegetables including spinach, sprouts, cabbage, beetroot. (2) fruits-blue-berries, black-berries, strawberries, raspberries, kiwi fruit, grapes, pineapple, pomegranate, grapes, guava. (3) dry-fruits: almonds, walnuts, apricots, dates. (4) cereals: oats, barley, millets. (5) drink a cup of green tea daily. (6) drink a glass of milk daily. All said and done, get a complete eye evaluation done in person by an eye specialist. It will help in identification of any other eye problem and possible treatment options.

I have an eye sight, I can't see the long distance please help me, which type solution should I take.
For your sight, simplest solution is to use spectacles. Another alternative is to use contact lenses (needs everyday insertion & removal before sleep at night). Long term, permanent solution includes getting laser vision correction or lasik. Depending on your profession, suitability, life style & affordability, you can go for one of the options.

My younger Son of 5 Years old have undergone squint surgery on right eye recently in Feb 2016. The squint was appeared in right eye (only) in Jan 2016 end week & that too instantly. Earlier to that, all was fine. To recover from the situation, our doctor suggested us to have squint muscle surgery which is common treatment.    Now after six month of surgery, the squint has appeared again on same eye. It is not constant squint on same eye & now sometimes both eyes looks fine, sometimes only right eye shows squint or sometimes his left eye shows squint. Our doctor says this is normal case & we will try to make it clear by using glasses & patching daily.    I am bit confused & don't know whether we are taking correct treatment or not? We are using glasses since yesterday as per Doctors advice & don't have complete result now.    Just wanted to have your expert opinion on below   1. Can squint reappear after surgery also?  2. Why the squint is not constant, sometime angle is more inward & sometimes in clean.  3. What tests I should do for my son to recover from this situation & do you feel that, we are taking correct treatment. 4. Do we need to visit Neurologist also? 5. Will my son can make confirmed outcome from this squint issue? 6. Is this is common or rare case?     Kindly support.

Squint can reappear after surgery. Eye alignment is variable. And depends upon eye muscle strenght, balance and coordination. During times of intense concentration n focus, sometimes the binocularity breaks and one eye will squint. Also, when sick or tired, the eye muscle also get fatigued readily, that's when the squint may also become evident. Sometimes following squint surgery, some vision therapy exercises are recommended to build on eye muscle strength and coordination. For the glasses power, doctor may need to under/ over or give full correction depending on a detailed squint examination n impact on squint surgery. I don't think you need to do any tests or visit a neurologist, but the judgement will remain with the treating doctor. I strongly suggest you discuss your apprehensions with the treating doctor. Squint and vision development in an ongoing process, with many factors contributing to outcome. There will never be any confirmation. Orthophoria or no squint is a rare phenomena. So have a reasonable expectation. All the best.
