Lybrate-user you may have computer vision syndrome. With computer use, it is advised you follow the 20-20-20 rule. It means-after every 20 minutes for 20 seconds look at a distance beyond 20 feet. Also try palming. Rub your hands to warm them and then cover your eyes. It will help relax your eyes. Get your eye power checked especially if your last eye checkup has been more than a year ago. Consider using a lubricating eyedrops. One you can use one r your contact lenses though. Get an eye exam if this does not help.

Things to Know About Lasik Surgery

Cornea Cataract & Lasik

Things to Know About Lasik Surgery

If you suffer from vision loss and have to wear spectacles in order to see clearly you may be considering lasik surgery. Lasik surgery can be used to treat near sightedness, far sightedness and astigmatism. It involves reshaping the cornea with the help of a laser beam. This is an outpatient procedure where you can get back to work in a day or two.

To be able to undergo a lasik surgery, you must be:

  1. Aged 18 or more
  2. Suffer from nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism
  3. Lead an active lifestyle
  4. Be in general good health
  5. Have strong tear production
  6. Have thick corneas

Before the surgery begins, numbing eye drops are applied to prevent any discomfort during the procedure. The surgery itself involves the creation of a thin flap in the cornea. This is the folded back to reveal the corneal tissue below. If you suffer from nearsightedness, an excimer laser is used to flatten the cornea while if you suffer from nearsightedness, it creates a steeper cornea. In cases of astigmatism, the cornea is smoothened into a normal shape. Once this has been done, the flap is laid back in place and the cornea is allowed to heal naturally. An uncomplicated lasik surgery for one eye usually takes less than five minutes. You may feel some pressure on your eyes and hear a steady clicking sound while the laser is in use.

You may feel temporary burning or itching immediately after the procedure. Do not in any condition rub your eyes to relieve this sensation. Also, do not attempt to drive and have somebody else drive you home. The blurred vision and haziness will clear by the next morning. You may also experience heightened sensitivity to light and may see halos around lights. The whites of your eyes may also look bloodshot for a few days. In most cases, vision improves immediately but in a few rare cases, it could take several weeks or longer.

Though you can return to work the next day, it is a good idea to take a few days off. Also refrain from strenuous activities of any sort for a week after the surgery. Take the medication prescribed by the doctor regularly and do not change the eye drops without consulting him first. Avoid using makeup or cream around the eye for up to two weeks after the surgery to minimize the risk of infection. You should also avoid using swimming pools or hot tubs for 1-2 months after the surgery.

My eyes regularly releases water while reading and working on phone. What is its cure?

FICO, DNB Ophtalmology
Ophthalmologist, Gandhinagar
My eyes regularly releases water while reading and working on phone. What is its cure?
Hi lybrate-user. Sorry about your eye trouble. The problem faced by you is common in today's age. The problem actually is not cause by the use of the phone-it is cause by improper posture and habits while using the phone. I have a few suggestions for you regarding the usage of phones, computers, and books. Follow the rule of" 20" this means that every 20 minutes, take a gap of 20 seconds, blink your eyes actively 20 times and focus at an object which is minimum 20 feet away. This will help in relieving your eyes from the continuous strain that is caused due to staring. Staring at the computer continuously causes us to subconsciously blink less than normal. This causes the tear film on the surface of the eye to dry up. The result of this is pain, discomfort, etc. Another suggestions regarding the usage of computers is to maintain a proper posture. The computer must be positioned at the same height as your eye level. The neck should not be inadvertently flexed or extended. Roughly, an angle of 90 degrees should be maintained between your upper body and thighs. Likewise, a similar angle (90 degrees) should be maintained between your lower legs and thighs. Also the angle between your hands and arms should be roughly 90 degrees. This is the healthy ergonomic way of sitting while using a computer. Maintenance of proper posture would help in further relieving the symptoms of eye discomfort and pain. You could consider preservative free lubricant eye drops 4 to 5 times daily. These eye drops would ensure that your eyes stay well lubricated and fresh. All these suggestions may take a while to sink in and imbibe in your routine. Once followed, they are sure to work wonders for you. You could also use a preservative free lubricant eye drop 4 to 5 times in a day. Also, adequate sleep of 7 hours a day is essential in order to maintain healthy eyes.

Procrastination is process of putting of things that are important and indulging into not that important things. It is like doing activities which are preferred over activities which are not preferred but important. To stay away from procrastination 1. Identify that you are procrastinating on some activity 2. Find out the reason for procrastination 3. Use strategies against procrastination eg: rewarding yourself on completing the unpleasant task, ask someone to keep a tab on your work, make a to do list. Finally always remember these tips will only help if you work on them there is no substitute for hard work.

Hairs on face also known as hirsutism is one of the symptoms of pcos. Please don't do laser treatment as it can harm your skin. Homoeopathic treatment can clear your problems. Polycystic ovarian syndrome can be completely cured with homoeopathic medicines. No side effects in homoeopathic medicines. We can prevent further recurrence. Avoid non veg and bakery items. Reduce intake of oily and fatty foods. Drink plenty of water. Daily walk about 45 mins. While taking homoeopathic medicines please avoid coffee and soft drinks for fast and better action of medicines. Nothing to worry. Homoeopathic medicines like apis, thuja, natrum mur, etc can cure pcos within 2 to 4 months if properly taken as per the instructions of a qualified homoeopath or me either directly or online. Please check thyroid profile, lh and fsh level. And also do usg pelvis and abdomen. Please consult online.

Lasik is a permanent surgery. Laser recon tours the cornea so that light focuses crisply on retina. If you r power is not stable. What ever power change occurs will present as residual refractive error in due course after surgery. If you r keen. Start maintaining your glasses prescription with or without corneal topography. Can plan for Lasik once all parameters stabilise for best long term results.

Constant work on pc or laptop can cause this. You should take rest from work every 15-20 min for about 20 sec and look at some distant object about 20 feet away. This will help in relaxing your eyes. You can use some lubricant eye drops eg lubrex eye drops 1 drop every 2 hourly.

It can be due to progressive myopia, also one should rule out keratoconus. If it becomes stable, you can undergo icl (lens implantation in the eye) even if cornea is thin. Kindly consult ophthalmologist.

Yes you can plan lasik. 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.

The fever may be because of viral infection which is common now a days you may take tab paracetamol 500 mg three times a day. But in the mean time you should consult your family physician for better understanding of the problem. It is important to know whether you are having cough, cold etc and to examine to know your blood pressure etc.

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 laser as your age is now 31 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.
