Eye strain, or asthenopia, is when the eyes get tired from excessive or intense use. It can be annoying, but it tends to disappear with rest. Although it’s not often a serious condition, eye strain could be a symptom of an underlying problem. Eye strain is known to cause fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and headaches Eye strain may lead to other problems, such as: • Headaches • Difficulty Concentrating • Irritability • Burning Sensation • Watery Eyes • Dry Eyes • Photophobia • Eye Pain The first thing you can do is change your environment and work habits. By doing this you can relieve the pain without spending money on treatment. If you work on the computer,or watch tv, try taking more eye breaks by looking down the hall or out the window, or by closing your eyes for thirty seconds. You should get your eyes checked at least once a year, especially as you grow older. Routine eye exams give you the opportunity to discuss with your Eye Specialist any issues you may be having, and they may enable you to catch any problems in their early stages. Age Frequency 0 to 6 months Minimum of once a year 6 months to 18 years Every 2 – 4 years 19 to 39 years Every 3 – 5 years 40 to 64 years Every 2 – 4 years 65 and older Every 1 – 2 years If you spend a lot of time sitting in front of a tv or reading, you may need prescription glasses solely for those activities. Homoeopathic Medicine CINELUBE EYEDROPS ( HAPDCO) 3 times daily.

Hello dear. Lasik laser is a safe procedure. I know many good hospital in hyderabad but as per guidelines of lybrate I can not recommend any hospital on public platform regarding insurence cover. Lasik is a cosmetic surgery so it is not covered by any insurance company.

Lasik can be done if his number is stable for 1 yr. However it also depends on corneal thickness, in your case it should be above 480 micrometer.

Most probably you are suffering from MYOPIA or Near sightedness.First of all visit an Eyespecialist to confirm Weak eyesight so that you can put required glasses,thereafter consult me.Myself being a homoeopath, will advise you to undergo homoeopathic treatment as homoeopathic medicine along with exercises and a diet plan are very effective combination for improving eyesight and slowly removing your glasses permanently.consult me

I had full eye test and pupil dilation test in march 2017 and Evey thing was normal. My eyes were totally healthy. But since yesterday I am having little pain at the corners of my eye and I am able to see far objects with little blurred and not clear enough. So please tell me whether a myopia can be developed after 2 months of full examination of eye or it is just because of summer and lack of water in my body?

It is due to dryness causing blurring of vision due to addiction to smartphone , laptop or watching TV for long time without break. Dryness is not a disease which you can cure by putting lubricating eye drops for few days, while working on smartphone , computer & watching TV for long time without giving importance to the health of eyes. Number of blinking drastically goes down from around 24 per minute to around 8 per minute while working on computer etc causing severe dryness, blurring of vision, headache & increased blinking to compensate dryness .One who works on smartphone etc will have to change &will have to learn how to work on computer for long time without giving any trouble to eyes .One should look away from computer after every 10 minute & should take rest for 10 minutes after every two hours .Every body knows that to become man from monkey took millions of years according to Darwin theory & how you expect that our eyes will adjust to computer in 20 yrs,nature takes its own time, computer development is just 20 yrs history, so you will have to take the help of lubricating eye drops to neutralise the effect of computer etc, you may use Refresh liquigel eye drops 5-6 times daily.

Hello lasik is very good option to get rid of glasses Doctor will perform few tests (Schirmer test, Pentacam and Fundus examination) and if all tests are normal then you can go for lasik surgery without fear. Success rate of LASIK is over 96%. Lasik is painless Side effects are usually minor like dryness, glare etc Serious side effects like infections etc are very rare.

You are suffering from high myopia. High myopia is degenerative condition which can cause various changes in retina. There is no proven role of medicine or food i'm improving it. Wearing uv protective glasses prevents eye of harmful rays. Eating fruits, green vegetables and fish may help, but no proven role in improving or protecting eye.

. Myopic power increases upto 21 yrs of age because body growth in male gets completed by 21 yrs.There is no direct medicine to improve vision but it you can take lots of green vegetables.--2.5D is considered very normal power, maximum increase in myopic power takes place between 13 yrs to 21yrs in male because maximum body growth takes place between these periods in male.You are 19 yrs old & you may take plenty of green vegetables &seasonal fruits so that minimum increase in myopic power occur. You may go for LASIK after 21 yrs if you are allergic to glass but you should go through in detail about LASIK or Smile LASIK on goggle.
