I have done smile laser before 15 days. Everything is fine. Can I play badminton. And can I swim. Or for how many days precaution to be taken.

Hello! 2 weeks post SMILE LASIK you can play badminton and you can swim. But, it would be safer to avoid both for another 2 weeks in order to prevent injury and infection during the healing period. Having said that, its always best to re confirm with your surgeon.

Hypermetropia - Causes And Symptoms!

Hypermetropia - Causes And Symptoms!

Hypermetropia, commonly known as long-sightedness, is a common vision condition in which distant objects appear clear, but nearby objects seem blurry or foggy. A person's ability to focus is greatly dependent on the degree of farsightedness. This condition of the eye is usually observed at birth and is also hereditary to some extent. Although, contact lenses and eye glasses are common methods of treatment, surgeries are also an option.

Before getting to understand the causes one should be aware of the structure of the eye.

The eye has two parts that focus on images:

- The clear surface at the front of the eye known as the cornea

- The second part is the lens, which is a clear structure

In a normal eye, these clear surfaces have a smooth curvature. The cornea and the lens bend or refract the incoming light to direct a sharply focused image on the retina, situated at the back of your eye.

Hypermetropia is caused when:

- The cornea or lens in the eye is not even or smoothly curved. In such cases, light rays are focussed behind retina which gives a blurry vision.

- The condition can also occur when the cornea of the eye is not curved enough. A shorter than the normal eye can also lead to such a condition. Convergent squint with eyes turning in is common in hypermetropes.

Due to these factors, the image is not precisely focused on the retina, causing blurry vision for nearby objects.

Some of the symptoms of farsightedness include:

- Objects that are close may appear blurry or cloudy

- Squinting the eyes might be necessary for viewing clearly

- A person may experience strain in the eye, aching and even inflammation in and around the eye

- Prolonged periods of close task like reading, writing or drawing may cause discomfort in the eye or minor headaches

Chronic eye strain and cross eyes are some of the commonly observed complications. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ophthalmologist.

I am having this itchy, runny nose with lot of sneezing accompanied by red watery eyes? Am I having a allergy or what is it? What to do?

MD Ophthalmology, Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS)
Ophthalmologist, Bangalore
There are many causes of itchy eyes. Most of the time, itchy eyes are caused by allergy. You need to figure out whether your allergy is seasonal or perennial (all year round). You also need to identify the triggers for allergy, which could be pollution, dust, pollen, pool water, pet dander, cosmetics, contact lenses and even eye drops. As, the causes for itchy eyes are so varied, if your symptoms are chronic, getting worse, or don't subside within a few days, make an appointment with your eye doctor for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. 1.Apply a clean, face towel rinsed in chilled water over closed eyes. 2.Do steam inhalation to relieve the stuffy nose. 3.You may start anti-allergic eye drops like OLOPATADINE 0.1% eye drops twice daily 4.Moisturizing eye drops like CMC (carboxymethylcellulose) 0.5% -1% 4 times daily may give some comfort 5.Rubbing releases more histamine that make the itching worse, so avoid vigorous eye rubbing. 6.Rubbing can also weaken your cornea in the long term. The most effective treatments are those that directly address the cause for itchy eyes. In your case there is probably associated allergic rhinitis which may benefit from nasal drops and oral medication. For this reason, consulting with your eye doctor can be very helpful to determine the most effective solution. In mild cases, itchy eyes can be cured with artificial tears or allergy drops. But in most others, a combination of treatments such as topical steroids, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medication and/or oral allergy drugs may be effective.
