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 17 years so your number will not increase much 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. As 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.

Dear lybrate-user! greetings the red eye can be treated by homoepathy without any side effects. 1. Do not strain much 2. Use adequate light while reading 3. Check your vision from eye specialist 4. Take more of green leaves, carrot and liver 5. Wash your face frequently 6. Do eye exercise which help to relax the muscles of orbit and you will get relief 7.

Watering 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. (6) refractive error: change of the power of the glasses, or, if not using glasses beforehand-you might be in the need for glasses. 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. You should also get your eye power tested. Maybe you might require glasses. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care,

Get your refraction done and wear spectacles eat green veggies. Carrots. Strain less your eyes. Relax your eyes in between work. Blink regularily if working for long time on computer. Lower the brightness of your screen. Work under adequately illuminated conditions. If needed wear corrective spectacles. These r few things you can take care of. Otherwise as such no options available which wd increases your eyesight. And myopia has a tendency to increase till adulthood.

Hello, you should do these exercises to strengthen the eye muscles. Exercises for eyes: warm your eyes. Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Repeat this three times. Roll your eyes. Start by looking up and then slowly circle 10 times clockwise and 10 times counterclockwise. Focus. Hold a pen at arm's length, focus your eyes on it, and slowly bring the pen closer until it's about 6 inches away from your nose. Then slowly move it back, keeping your eyes focused on the pen, 10 times in all. Massage your temples. Using your thumb knuckles, massage your temples in small circles, 20 times in one direction and 20 in the other. Repeat the same actions above the mid-point of the eyebrows at the forehead, then below the eyes on both sides of the bridge of the nose. Take a mini-nap. Put your head back, close your eyes, and relax for 3 minutes. Insufficient sleep may weaken your vision, so shoot for 8 hours of sound sleep a night. Rest your eyes 10 minutes for every 50 minutes spent reading or in front of the computer. If your eyes feel overly tired, lie down and place cooling cucumber slices over your eyelids.

Hi Doctor, 6 months back I got hit by a drumstick tip in my left eye and got severe pain. I went to a near by ophthalmologist and got it treated and now its fine. But at times I get sudden reflex like pain especially when I wake up from sleep. It lasts only for few seconds and it happens only occasionally .also the vision in the affected eye is a little bit blurry when compared to the other eye. Could you tell me why I get that pain and suggest me some remedies for that pain and blueness please.

Use lubricating gel or ointment like Lacrimal or iflomax just before sleeping at night and if required also in morning..It should be OK in7-10 days..But continue with ointment for at least 1 month. If no significant relief, please consult an eye doctor again

Hello this number depends on the distance where you do your near tasks. You consult the doctor again but this time you. Keep the booklet (given by the doctor to check your near vision) at exactly the same distance where you keep your miniature sculptures. Then only doctor will be able to give you exact number. You might feel better with 2 number.

Dryness can last upto one year also after laser surgery so continue lubricating eye drops eye liner and mascara temporarily can increase dryness and cause allergy also. Just continue lubricating eye drops at increased frequency visit your lasik surgeon if you still face problems.

We need to identify cause of recurrent eye lid infection and then treat it. Rule out diabetes by checking blood sugar levels -both fasting and 2 hours after a meal. Rule out refractive error, eyelid inflammation called blepharitis, eye allergies, dryness...They cause eye rubbing and germs from ur hands cause eye infections. maintain eyelids hygiene as well. So wash your hands or use a hand sanitiser every 1-2 hours. DON'T touch your eyes.

I am a 30 years old and I am using laptop regularly 10 to 12 hours so now my eyes and also getting head ache pain.
Hi, the solution to your problem mostly lies in your question itself. You seem to be overly stressed out because of long hours of work on your laptop on a day to day basis, and hence the headache. I would advise you to take regular breaks, relax yourself for sometime and then get back to your work. Remember that de-stressing yourself periodically is not only good for your health but also is essential for you to stay engaged with your work and enjoy the same. Make sure, you take care of your posture and the needful ergonomics while at work. Working on computers/ laptops et al for long hours exposes one to repeated stress related injuries (rsis) and consequently one may land up in headache as well. It is advisable that you get your eyes checked by an eye specialist for sometimes problems with vision lead to headaches too. Taking due care of diet and lifestyle including exercise/ yoga/ meditation on a daily basis shall go a long way in protecting your overall health and fitness levels. Hope this helps.

Hello lybrate-user. For retinal detachment. In early cases. Only treatment is surgery but you had rd 10 years back I am afraid surgery will help you now. Regarding crossed eye (squint/strabismus) your eyes can once again become straight by surgery. You can consult squint specilist in your city for same.
