My eyes will turn red oftenly, and feel like rubbing. I think when I see more mobile phone or laptop it happens like that. But when I consulted a opthalmology doctor they told it was due to infection. Please suggest your opinion and remedy for this.

Hello. I think you have allergic conjunctivitis. 1. Eye allergies, called allergic conjunctivitis, are a common condition that occurs when the eyes react to something that irritates them (called an allergen). 2. The eyes produce a substance called histamine to fight off the allergen. As a result, the eyelids and conjunctiva (the thin, filmy membrane that covers the inside of your eyelids) become red, swollen and itchy, with tearing and burning. The key to treating eye allergies is a. Avoid or limit contact with the substance causing the problem. B. Avoid rubbing eyes instead do cold compresses. C. Use antiallergic eyedrop like olopat eyedrop twice daily d. Lubricating eyedrop like flogel thrice daily e. Use mild steroid like flurisone in pulse dose in severe allergy this will help you I am very sorry dear to say that there is no medicine that can cure allergy. Only way is to stay away from all those things that you are allergic to. This is a provisional diagnosis. Consult your ophthalmologist for detailed examination.

How to avoid or reduce the frequent drying of eyes and getting sleepy due to the dry eyes.
Me lybrate-user, dryness of eyes at your age is not good. I suspect it may not actual dry eyes. Simple way of avoiding dryness is proper blinking of eyes. Keep your brain alert about blinking. You can use ophthacare eyedrops (himalaya) but not more than one month.

Ayurveda therapies and medications could help improve your quality of vision and strengthen your eyes. In Your case i think patching of less numbered eye for about 2 hours a day would equalize the vision in both eyes..

The symptoms described by you indicate that you are suffering from eye allergy and infection due to contact lens use. It would be a good idea to start using lubricant eye drops every hour (use preservative free genteal eye drops or any other preservative free eye drops). Along with these, start an antibiotic eye drop (4 to 5 times daily). Keep washing your eyes with clean hands and clean water repeatedly (4 to 5 times in a day). It would be better to discontinue the contact lens use at least for sometime. Contact lens induced hypersensitivity/ allergy/ infection has multiple causes associated with it. To enumerate a few: (1) it may be caused due to over wear (use for more than 6-7 hours at a stretch) (2) overnight wear of contact lens. (3) improper hygiene of the contact lens. If handled with dirty hands, contact lens associated infection/ allergy may occur. Thus, hands must be thoroughly washed before handling contact lens. (4) likewise, the contact lens cleaning solution, if not handled properly, may cause major eye problems. It should not be used beyond its expiry date. Nor should it be over used (using the same fluid for 2-3 days!) (5) using contact lens beyond expiry date (this being the cause in your case) now, the first thing you should start with is discontinue the contact lens usage. Subsequently, just go through the points mentioned by me. If you match any of the mentioned points, rectify them. You might want to consider changing the contact lens pair that you are currently using and start with a fresh pair. Take care.

Sir meri ankh me allergy ho rhi he aur bahut jyada presaan Kar rhi he give me any suggestion.
If you an allergic tendency which gets aggravated with the change of season, then you should consult your doctor before its onset. Allergy could be seasonal or perennial. It could be due to a particular component or very commonly dust. In either case, you should try to avoid the allergan and visit your eye specialist. If the allergy is mild itching, it can be handled with simple washing of eyes with clean cold water and using mild anti allergic drops like olopatadine along with a lubricant drop. But if the allergy is severe leading to severe itching with redness and watering, its better to consult an eye specialist who will not only prescribe you stronger anti allergic drops but also oral anti allergic tablets. You can even do cold fomentation for severe itching. Never rub your eyes. Its a vicious cycle, the more you rub, more you feel like doing it.

You. Have not mentioned your age, if you are above 20 yrs, then you should not worry at all because -1d & -0.5d has no value & there is no chance of further increase. There is lots of advantage of this type of myopia after age of 40 yrs. I will never advise you LASIK for this type of myopic power, with regards.

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 as your age is now 23 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. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

I have a pain sensation in my leg extending to the feet. Sometimes it is mostly a little pain sensation or weakness near the knee. Sometimes I have a burning pain in my fingers (not sure if it is finger joints) which grows and suddenly drops and is gone. I have been having a twitching left eye for nearly a week. And also I have problem of acidity mostly after junk and spicy food or if I have an empty stomach. Please tell what possibly could be the problem or is it just because of lifestyle?

Lasik is better than icl (refractive lens technique) as it is least invasive and very less side effects are seen with it. Also cost is very less compared to icl. Icl is preferably done cases where lasik cannot be done.

I have a problem in my eyes when I play in very bright sunlight my eye become dark red how I will control it.

I have a problem in my eyes when I play in very bright sunlight my eye become dark red how I will control it.
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. From the symptoms described by you, it seems more likely to be a case of allergy. Maintaining the precautions and hygiene that I mentioned should probably work well for you. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care, regards.

This is called puffy eyes. There are few reasons why one have puffy eyes in morning -: 1.If your sleeping position is not right,you got to have puffy eyes morning. Don't sleep in flat position. Do keep a pillow under head due which the gravity comes into play and fluid does not collect in eyes. 2. If you are not taking complete sleep of 7 hours,then you are likely to have puffy eyes and dark circles. 3. If you had high sodium diet and taken lots of alcohol at night,then there is high chance of having puffy eyes. Therefore,keep these things in mind. You may take homoeopathic treatment too...
