I want to leave my eye sight spectacle on my eyes please try to solve this problem.
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 20 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.

It may go away in about a months time. Give cold packs. If there is a direct hit to the eye, you must consult an eye surgeon.

I am 14 years old. My eyesight is very weak, my right eye is weaker. I have been wearing glasses since 3 to 4 years. My doctor said they won't improve until I am completely grown. He suggested me to put my left eye closed for 3 to 4 hours a day and try to use my right eye more than that of left. Is he right? Will this really work?

Along with myopia ,you are also suffering from amblyopia ,at the age of 14 yrs amblyopia or lazy eye is uncureable, you should consult some experienced ophthmologist to understand your problem , just wearing glass is no solution .Myopic power is inherited from either mother or father side & is basically hereditary in nature ,maximum increase in myopic power takes place between 13 to 21 yrs in male & between 13 yrs to 19 yrs in female because maximum body growth takes place between these periods. There is no direct medicine to check the increase in myopic power but with the help of balanced diet ,green vegetables & seasonal fruits  one can slow the speed in the increase of myopic  power,one can take the help of yoga pranayam, swimming, gym &these things definitely slow the speed of increase in myopic power.

This is called floaters. It could be normal but also it could be a sign of some retinal problem. Get your eyes cheeked by an ophthalmologist preferably a retina specialist.

For temporary relief of itching, try these self-care measures: use a high-quality moisturizing cream on your skin. Apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area as prescribed by me avoid scratching whenever possible. Apply cool, wet compresses. Take a lukewarm bath. Wear smooth-textured, loose cotton clothing. Do reply back for private consultation for a detailed treatment plan which will cure your itching problem.

I am 23 year's old and I have a amblyopia in my left eye , is treatment is available to cure this lazy eye issue?

I am 23 year's old and I have a amblyopia in my left eye , is treatment is available to cure this lazy eye issue?
Hello lybrate-user. Sorry about your eye trouble. Amblyopia/ lazy eye develops during the initial years of one's life (2 to 12 years of age). As you would probably know, there are multiple reasons associated with it. Let me enumerate them in brief: (1) unequal refractive error in both eyes causing one eye to become lazy. (2) squint in one eye. (3) cataract at a young age in one eye / both eyes. (4) retinal tumor/ detachment/ pathology occurring at a young age. (5) injury to one eye. If treated early (2 to 12 years of age) and followed up regularly, there is a chance of preventing amblyopia. Unfortunately, at your age (23 years), it would be difficult to treat and cure it. Early intervention in the form of patching therapy would have made it possible to cure it.

Hello sir, I am suffering from short sightedness. What should I do to avoid increasing my specs number! Please tell me.
Get your refraction done and wear spectacles. Eat green veggies. Carrots. Strain less your eyes. Relax your eyes in between work. Blink regularly if working for long time on computer. Lower the brightness of your screen. Work under adequately illuminated conditions. If needed wear corrective spectacles. These are few things you can take care of. Otherwise as such no options available which with increases your eyesight. You cant do anything to prevent your refractory error. Looking at your age I think it will stabilize in an year or two.

Actually there is less nerve supply to the muscle which holds the eyelids to keep eyes open and hence there is ptosis and if necessary we can resect the involved muscle but it has got its own complications

Hi this is tera. I have red eye. I was watching tv more. Please tell me best suitable glasses for my eye s?
For this you will have to get computerised eye checkup by eye care specialist. Also I would recommend you that take frequent breaks while watching tv. If you get too much eye strain. Dip a handkerchief in cold water and keep it over closed eyes. That will give you relief.

No, there is no other way to remove squint other than surgery you need to get yourself evaluated before to assess whether you are fit for squint surgery also or not there are many types of squint and what surgery you require is another question to be asked so please go ahead and get yourself consulted.

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?

Computer eye strain is known as computer vision syndrome please follow the advice given below. 1. Take a break-use 20-20 rule, take a break for 20 second after working in computer for 20 minutes and look at some thing 20 feet away. 2. Blink frequently to prevent dryness of eyes 3. Use of computer glass- it optimises your eye sight when you are looking at digital screen and helps to decrease glare 4. Keep your monitor bright- this decreases flicker 5. Use proper lighting like incandescent light 6. Check position of monitor- monitor should be placed 4-5inches below eye level and 20-28 inches from eyes 7. Adjust, screen resolution 8. Minimise glare- clean monitor regularly to remove dust and place an anti glare screen 9. Try massage or eye cupping- massaging the area around the eye will relax eye muscle. Rub your hands together to create friction and warmth, then gently cup your palm over the closed eye and rest them 10. Take multivitamin tablet containing vitamin a, c, e, b complex, zinc and antioxidant (one capsule of revital daily after breakfast) 11. Go for yearly eye examination.

My eyes are getting pain after sitting in front of screen for sometime even after using specs. What should I do.

My eyes are getting pain after sitting in front of screen for sometime even after using specs. What should I do.
Computer screen is made up of hundreds of tiny pixels that are constantly moving. Our eyes in turn are not naturally able to set focus on these constantly moving pixels, and hence we try to focus on an area behind the actual screen. Therefore, while watching on a creen, our eyes need to keep on fluctuating focus between their natural point of focus and the pixels on the screen. And this tires the eyes and causes a lot of wear and tear.As a result, we suffer from irritation, which may range from a number of things like headaches, dry eyes,redeyes,, blurred vision, problems in focusing and faulty color perception, to something as severe as glaucoma. Moreover it is more distressing for our eyes to view contents on a screen which requires even more concentration and extenive usage of eyes without blinking thus causing Eye dryness and Redness making them vulnerable to frequent Eye problemss. . The solution for this problem I its reduced usage of TV andd computers and use them inproper light. There is nothing more effective than controlling usage to reduce and negate the effects. You can also reduce the intensity of the computer screen by attaching a filter or by getting an eye-friendly screen. Above all, one must try to reduce the amount of computer usage or take frequent breaks.
