There is watering during driving bike in spite of using helmet, then you should consult ophthmologist for refraction, otherwise watering during driving bike is due to air which faces cornea & conjunctiva of our eyeball.

Hi I am 20 years old I have head pain wen ever I study. I had a consulted a eye specialists also. Wht should I do?
If the eye specialist has ruled out eye problems, it could be chronic tension type headache if it is occurring frequently and feels like a tight band around your head. Another contributor could be bad posture causing certain muscle to tense up and refer pain to head. Try frequent breaks during study sessions with good posture. Visit a neurologist if it persists.

How to improve cylindrical vision of -7.5 Is there any medicine to get it correct.
Hello dear. R you sure that you have 7.5d cylinder. If thats true, I would suggest a test" pentacam" to rule out keratoconus. If keratoconus is ruled out then you can go for toric phakic lens to get rid of glasses.

When I stand up after 2-3 hour sitting I fell pain in my heel and my eyes ate dry also.

FICO, DNB Ophtalmology
Ophthalmologist, Gandhinagar
When I stand up after 2-3 hour sitting I fell pain in my heel and my eyes ate dry also.
Hello lybrate-user. Regarding dry eyes, I have a few suggestions for you: (1) the first thing to remember is that long term continuous usage of mobile phones or computers is harmful for the eyes. Ranging from dry eyes to multiple postural defects, there are many consequences. The good news is that there are simple tips and solutions to avoid these problems from occurring. Let me enumerate them in brief: avoid continued staring at computer screens, television. Mobiles, books, etc. Continuous staring tends to aggravate dry eye condition. (2) 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. (3) 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. Remember the rule of 90. 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. (4) also remember the rule of 1. At least 1 time in a day, wash your eyes with clean hands and clean water in a gentle manner. Exercise for at least 1 hour in a day. Try to spend 1 hour with nature. (eg. In a park, garden, etc.) (5) you could consider preservative free lubricant eye drops 4 to 5 times daily. (eg. Tears naturale ii eye drops) 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.

My son is 4. 10 yrs in age and rubs his eyes a lot? can his eyes be weak? should I get an eyesight test done?

Pediatrician, Ghaziabad
Age is 4 yr and 10 months, if I am correct. Most common cause is dust and enviormental allergen for itchy eyes. You can go for a vision test if itching persists even after avoiding allergens

I have a eye problem. My eye always use to give me some kind of trouble. But not a serious affect. every time water use to come. I have a power. I wear power glass. Now my question is - my right eye is fine and left eye is little bigger as compared to right eye. And if I watch tv or mobile continuously for 15 to 20 minutes my left eye starts paining. And my left eyeball is little bigger. And I dint notice it for a long time. My mother told me that your eyes is little bigger (left eye) as compared to right eye. Then only I saw. So now my question is can one eye be smaller and the other big? Why does it happen like this? Can I make both the eyes look smaller? I actually visited a doctor and she told your eyes are totally fine. Your retina is good. Your one eye little big nothing else no need to worry. But I am worried because I want to know how it happened? Can it be made small. If the glass power increased means the eye ball becomes big? How to make both the eyes look small. What are the treatments. Then I have headaches also. I saw my childhood pics and the recent photos which I took.in that all my one eye is little big. So I am little tension free. But what is the solution for this? Will the eye balls become more big? And sometime my left eye shakes little bit. If the power of glass is little more than my actual power do my eyes pain? Or the eyes become big?

He is having myopia and his number will keep on increasing till he is 20 coz the number generally stabilises at that age when body growth stops. Make him eat green veggies and carrots more as there is nothing much which you can do.

Hello sir My father underwent cataract surgery in left eye. The doctor told me that during the surgery he came to know that my father had posterior polar cataract. And during surgery cortex of lens was strongly adherent to posterior capsule. So he had to do anterior vitrectomyou also. After surgery he has blurred vision and now keratitis is cured after the medication. His vision is also improved after 5 days of surgery bt he says that he feels a horse shoe shaped black area in his visual field. . His retina is checked and it's normal. So what can be the reason for disabled black view? Should we wait for 1 month till the medication gets over or should we go for further investigation?Please tell.

Dear:- posteriour polar cataract surgery needs better preplanned investigation (sle) to diagnosed accurately & manage accordingly. As per your information, posterior capsule has been ruptured accidently. Posteriour capsule rupture will cause vitreous prolapse, keratitis, post. Op. Glaucoma, impairment of vision & other complication later also. Through fundus examination is needed to exclude any retinal detachment or hole. Vitreous floater may be rule out also.

Hi, feel sorry to hear that. Remember everybody has to die, you don't think that you are the only sufferer, everybody suffers in this world. Recently I lost my son in united states, he was 6 feet 1 inch very handsome, died because of sleep apnoea during sleep. You can understand my level of sufferings. So adapt to the day to day circumstances and try to console yourself by answering the questions to yourself. It will take a while till you become normal. Spend good times with your dear ones. Take care.

Tips to Prevent Vision Loss in Elderly People

Cornea Cataract & Lasik
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
Tips to Prevent Vision Loss in Elderly People

A person is said to have great vision more in the metaphorical way than in the literal sense. However, having both is just so important, especially as the ability to see reduces as a person gets older. Old age comes with its own set of problems, and vision loss is one of them. If kept in check from an early age, however, vision loss can be deferred indefinitely.

While a person's eyesight is likely to deteriorate over the course of his life, there is a lot which can be done in an effort to make sure that this is not the case. To start with, it makes good sense to be regular with eye check-ups. After a person attains the age of sixty, he or she should have a doctor take a look at his or her eyes on a yearly basis. There is no point trying to conserve eye sight if a person is too late in taking corrective action. By paying a visit to the ophthalmologist, a person will get to know the exact problem that he is suffering from.

A good diet which is rich in the nutrients which improve a person's eye sight does go a very long way in the long run. A person should make sure that is diverse enough to take care of the needs of a person and should include grapefruit, strawberries as well as berries and nuts.

One of the main things which can be done in order to preserve the health of a person's eyes until he or she reaches an advanced age is to stop smoking in all forms. As a matter of fact, tobacco leads to cyanide entering the blood stream and this does a lot of damage to the eyes. In fact, quite a few irreversible conditions of the eye are caused due to this.

Exercise is said to be good for a person at any age for a variety of reasons and it is really good for even the eyes, though the link may not be immediately so clear. It reduces the risk of age related degeneration by up to 70 per cent!

What is really interesting about a person's eyes is that they can be signs of trouble in other parts of the body. For example, if a person has blurry vision, they should get checked for diabetes. Also, eyes which do not produce enough natural lubrication can show a risk of rheumatoid arthritis and perhaps even thyroid disease.

All in all, a person's eyesight is so crucial to his or her overall health and wellbeing. We have only one pair of eyes, so we might as well take care of them!

My eyes are itching from 5 days what should I do to prevent this itching in my eyes?

My eyes are itching from 5 days what should I do to prevent this itching in my eyes?
Is your itching very severe? are you on the laptop entire day? for starters, please wash your eyes every time you come home from outside coz the itching/ allergy is often due to the dust and pollutants which settle in the eye, which is not washed away. Alternatively use some antiallergic eyedrops.

It happens sometimes with chlorine, you can put antiallergic & some antibiotic eye drops 4-5 times for 2-3 days (Pataday & Tobrex eye drops). It will be alright if you don't get relief consult local Opthalmologist.

Hi, Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe’s Belladonna 30 and Euphrasia 30 - both thrice daily for 4 days. Use Euphrasia Eye drops twice daily. Revert back thereafter. Management: - Try to rest your eyes if redness is due to fatigue or eye strain. No other treatment is needed. - Wash your hands, hold clean water in your hand, keep your eyes closer to the water and dip the eyes by blinking the eyelids frequently in the held water in hand. Repeat it for 3-4 times again. - Avoid watching T. V. Working on computer or mobile, reading or frequently keep blinking your eyes to avoid dryness. Take frequent breaks in between. - Maintain hygiene, use a clean napkin or a tissue to wipe the tears and cleaning the eyelids gently. -Wear an UV-rays protected sunglasses while you are out in sun.
