Hello if floaters are many then consult local retina specialist as it may be associated with some retinal disease. If retina is ok, then there is nothing to worry there is no cure for floaters just avoid them.

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. Use antiallergic eyedrop along with lubricating eyedrop. 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.

How Homeopathy Can Help With Eye Problems?

DM & S
Homeopath, Akola
How Homeopathy Can Help With Eye Problems?

While most of us complain of eye problems as pain or redness or itching or excessive tearing, there is more to it than what meets the eye! As with all diseases, the homeopath will try to unravel the problem in its deeper form. A detailed discussion to ask related symptoms happens, after which a diagnosis will be made. Treatment is then done accordingly which will not just get rid of the eye symptoms but also improve the overall health of the person.

Conditions like cataract and glaucoma need to be surgically corrected; however, others can be managed via homeopathic medicines effectively. The following are the top five homeopathic medicines described along with the symptoms in which they are used. A detailed discussion with your homeopath to arrive at the diagnosis should definitely precede use of these medications. Self-medication is not advised.

Mercurius - Mercurial preparations are used when the following symptoms are seen:

  1. Thickened, red eyelids that are worse at night
  2. Profuse, offensive-smelling discharge that causes burning
  3. Boils around the eyes with pus formation
  4. Floaters in the eyes
  5. Worsens with warmth and damp weather
  6. Syphilitic eye infections

Belladonna: One of the most widely used eye remedies in homeopathy; it is extremely useful in the following situations

  1. Ophthalmic conditions with severe inflammation, dryness,
  2. Injected eyes with iritis or retinitis
  3. Fear of light (photophobia)
  4. Eyes affected due to excessive light or poor light
  5. Retinal hemorrhage conditions
  6. Sudden, acute onset of these symptoms
  7. Great intolerance to light

Euphrasia and Allium cepa: This is used as a combo, with both used in similar situation but with contradicting symptoms. The person has symptoms similar to hay fever or cold.
While euphrasia is used where there is a bland nasal discharge and burning tears, allium is used when there is a strong burning sensation with nasal discharge. Some doctors even try one, and if it is not effective, they prescribe the other one. Other conditions where Euphrasia and Allium cepa are used include:

  1. Watery eyes that blink frequently
  2. Acute catarrhal conjunctivitis
  3. Bland and watery coryza
  4. Burning of the eyes with corrosion of the margins
  5. Opaque, blistering cornea with thick discharge
  6. Eye swelling improves when in open air, worsens in the evening and with light

Arsenica - This common homeopathy medicine is used in the following situations:

  1. Sharp eye pain caused by day light
  2. Closing eyes produces pain in the eyes
  3. Running of letters when trying to read
  4. Affected tear ducts
  5. Cataracts in office goes
  6. Worsened during new moon and cold weather, improved with warmth.

These are some common homeopathy medicines, but again, as noted above, self-medication should be avoided. Any of these should be used only if prescribed by a homeopath.

What are the precautions to be taken after completion of retinal surgery and how long?

FICO, DNB Ophtalmology
Ophthalmologist, Gandhinagar
What are the precautions to be taken after completion of retinal surgery and how long?
You should adopt the following precautions after retinal surgery: (1) positioning of the face: if oil/ gas has been implanted into the eye, you would require strict head down/ face down positioning (prone positioning) for as many hours a day as possible. (2) putting drops regularly as advised by the retina specialist. (3) avoid over head bath/ soap application on the face and head for at least 15 days after the surgery. (4) wear protective glasses to protect eyes from sunlight, dust, pollutants, injury, etc. (5) avoid lifting heavy objects (more than 8-10 kgs) (6) avoid any jerky movement of the eyes. (7) if gas has been implanted in the eye, avoid air travel (traveling by airplane) or traveling to high altitudes. (8) avoid smoking/ tobacco chewing life long. Regarding the face down/ head down positioning that I mentioned, it should be done for as many hours as possible in the initial 2 weeks after surgery (if advised by your retina surgeon). After the first 2 weeks, it can be reduced to 4 hours a day for another 2 weeks. Subsequently it may be stopped. Hope my suggestions help you.

For the past 3 days I have had eye pain at the back of both my eyes. It also hurts when I move my eyes. It is in both my eyes but it appears to alternate. I also feel as though my eye muscles are very stiff and sore and limits my eye movement. I also feel as though my vision is zoning out, blurring my vision and making it difficult to focus. I feel as though I am constantly fighting to keep my eyes focused. Furthermore I have a heavy pressure feeling behind and around my eyes and in my head. It also feels around my nose. I have heavy brow ache and also tension type headache. In general my face, eyes and head feels tense and sore. I am also getting intermittent ear ache, my temples are tender, my cheek also feels slightly numb and I feel like I have toothache slightly. I do not have any nose congestion or cold symptoms so just wondering what this can be?

Hello this is not a serious matter 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 22 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.

Eyes appear red because the vessels at the surface of the white portion of the eye (sclera) become swollen. Vessels may swell either due to---------- 1. Dim light in the room where you study------------------------ 2. Weak eyesight------------------------------------- 3. Eye strain due to continuous study without breaks or dimlight----------- 4. Eye dryness due to continuous study-------------------------- the first thing you can do is change your environment and work habits. By doing this you can relieve the pain and redness without spending money on treatment. Try taking more eye breaks by looking down the hall or out the window, or by closing your eyes for thirty seconds.--------------------- if you spend a lot of time sitting and reading, you may need prescription glasses solely for those activities.-----------------while studying taking eye breaks for five minutes every hour can lessen the strain on your eyes. Simply closing your eyes for a few moments can also do wonders. Try standing up, moving around, or taking a short walk to help regain concentration. Regular eye exercises that involve focusing on different distances can help prevent future straining. Blink often. Blinking refreshes and replenishes your eyes naturally. If you are having trouble with blinking due to the dryness of your eyes, try using homoeopathic cinelube eyedrops (hapdco) 3 times daily.

Eye Flu Treatment in hindi - आँखो के फ्लू का इलाज

Eye Flu Treatment in hindi - आँखो के फ्लू का इलाज

हमारी की आँखे शरीर का सबसे अधिक आकर्षण वाला हिस्सा ही नही बल्कि सबसे खास अंग भी है। हमारे शरीर में इनका महत्व तभी तक है जब तक आपकी आँखों की दृष्टि सही सलामत है, दृष्टि एक ऐसा माध्यम है, जिसकी मदद से मनुष्य प्रकाश किरणों की संवेदना, चीजों का स्वरूप, दूरी, रंग आदि को महसूश करता है। आँखों का देखभाल करना उतना ही जरुरी है जितना की शरीर के अन्य भागो का, और अगर आप इनके साथ जरा सी भी लापरवाही बरतेंगे तो आपकी खूबसूरत आँखे खराब हो सकती हैं।

क्या है कंजंक्टिवाइटिस
कंजक्टिवाइटिस या ऑय फ्लू जिसे हम आँख आने के नाम से जानते है एक आम संक्रमण हैं जिसका सामना हम सभी ने कभी न कभी किया होगा। इस संक्रमण में आंखों में जलन होती है। मगर इस समस्या के होने पर क्या करना चाहिए तथा कैसे बचाव करना चाहिए ये कम ही लोग जानते और समझते हैं। आँखों के संक्रमण के कई कारण हो सकते हैं, पर इनके मुख्य कारण होते हैं छोटे जीवाणु और वायरस से हुआ संक्रमण। आमतौर पर यह एक एलर्जिक रिएक्शन की वजह से होता है। लेकिन कई मामलों में बैक्टीरिया का संक्रमण भी इसके लिए जिम्मेदार होता है। कभी कभी ऐसे संक्रमण आँखों में कुछ चले जाने की वजह से होते हैं जैसे धुल या गन्दगी। जो लोग खराब लेंस पहनते हैं उनके भी इस संक्रमण के शिकार होने की संभावना काफी ज़्यादा रहती है। इस संक्रमण की शुरुआत एक आंख से ही होती है, लेकिन जल्द ही दूसरी आंख भी इसकी चपेट में आ जाती है।
आँखों का संक्रमण या ऑय फ्लू साधारणतः मौसम में परिवर्तन के साथ देखा जाता है। यह ठंड मौसम या बरसात के मौसम में ज्यादातर होता है | यह एक फैलने वाली बीमारी है, जो किसी भी व्यक्ति को हो सकता है। एक बार यह किसी को हो जाता है, तो उसके आस पास रहने वाले लोगो में भी फैलने लगता है। आँखों में इन्फेक्शन होने पर आँख पहले गहरे पीले रंग के दीखते है फिर कुछ समय बाद आँखों का रंग बदल कर लाल हो जाता है।

कंजंक्टिवाइटिस के लक्षण 

  • आँखे लाल होना 
  • आँखों में खुजली होना
  • आँखों से धुधला दिखाई देना 
  • आँखों से पानी आना 
  • आँखों में दर्द होना 
  • शुरुआत में यह लक्षण एक आँख में नजर आते हैं और एहतियात या ईलाज न करने पर दुसरे आँख में भी फ़ैल सकता हैं। कंजंक्टिवाइटिस के गंभीर अवस्था में कुछ रोगियों के आँख से खून भी निकल सकता हैं।
  • आँखों से हरा या सफ़ेद चिपचिपा द्रव निकलने से पलके चिपकना एक बड़ा लक्षण है कंजंक्टिवाइटिस होने का।
  • धुप या तेज रोशनी के प्रति असंवेदनशीलता जिसे फोटोफोबिया भी कहा जाता हैं।

ध्यान दें

  • यदि आपको कंजंक्टिवाइटिस हो गया है तो इसका घरेलू इलाज करने से पहले इन बातों का विशेष ध्यान रखना जरूरी है। ऑय फ्लू में सही इलाज तभी संभव है जब कुछ सावधानियां बरती जाए 
  • किसी व्यक्ति से हाथ नहीं मिलाना चाहिए।
  • आंखों को हाथ से नहीं रगड़ना चाहिए।
  • यदि बच्चों के आंख में हो गया हो, तो उसे स्कूल नहीं भेजना चाहिए।
  • आंखों को तीन-चार बार गुनगुने पानी से धोना चाहिए।
  • तीन-चार दिन रोगी को आराम करना चाहिए।
  • किसी दूसरे को तौलिया, रुमाल इस्तेमाल नहीं करना चाहिए

कंजंक्टिवाइटिस का इलाज

1. गुलाब जल 
गुलाब के जल से आँख को धोने से आँखों का इन्फेक्शन कम हो जाता है। गुलाब के जल की दो बूंद आँखों में लगाये और इसे रोजाना दिन में दो बार करने से कंजंक्टिवाइटिस की समस्या खत्म कर सकते है।
2. गर्म पानी 
हलके गर्म पानी के इस्तेमाल से आँख को धोने से आँखों के ऊपर जमने वाले गंदगी हट जाती है। गर्म पानी को किसी बर्तन में निकाल कर हल्का ठंडा कर ले और उस हलके गर्म पानी से आप सीधे अपने आँखों को धो भी सकते है, जिससे आँख में जमी धुल गंदगी बाहर आ जाएगी। 
3. आंवले का रस
3 से 4 आंवले के फल के गूददे को पिस कर उसका रस निकाल ले। एक ग्लास पानी में उस रस को मिला कर पिये। आंवले के रस को सुबह खाली पेट में और रात में सोने से पहले दिन में दो बार इस्तेमाल करे । आँखों में संक्रमण होने पर आंवले का रस पीने से भी लाभ मिलता है।

4. शहद और  पानी का उपयोग
एक ग्लास पानी में 2 चम्मच शहद को मिला ले। फिर उस जल को अपने हांथो से तेज झटके के साथ खुली आँखों में मारे।  शहद से आँखों को धोने से आंखों का संक्रमण दूर होता है। 

5. पालक और गाजर का रस
पालक के 4 या 5 पत्तो को पिस ले और उसका रस निचोड़ ले। 2 गाजर को भी पिस कर रस निकाल ले। एक ग्लास में आधे कप पानी भर ले और उसमे गाजर और पालक के रस को मिला कर पीये। ऐसा रोजाना करने से आंख की संक्रमण कम होने लगता है। पालक और गाजर का रस आँखों के संक्रमण के लिए काफी लाभदायक होता है क्योकि इनमे पाए जाने वाले विटामिन आँखों के लिए काफी महत्वपूर्ण होते है। 

6. हल्दी और गर्म पानी
2 चम्मच हल्दी के पाउडर को 2 से 3 मिनट तक गर्म करे। एक ग्लास गर्म पानी में उस हल्दी को मिला दे। रुई की मदद से आँखों को साफ़ करे। गर्म पानी में हल्दी को मिलाकर रुई से आँखों को पोछना चाहिए। 
7. आलू
  एक आलू को अच्छे से पतले–पतले टुकड़ों में काट ले। रात में सोने से पहले उस कटे हुए आलू को अपने आँखों के ऊपर 10 मिनट तक लगा कर रखे फिर उसे उतार दें। आलू में स्टार्च अधिक मात्रा में होता है जिसके इस्तेमाल से आँखों के संक्रमण को ठीक किया जा सकता है।
