I have a refractive error in my right eye and doctors say I need surgery as soon as possible But right now I can't afford it, so what should I do to stop my condition from getting worse? Due to my job I have to look at computer screen for whole day I will get the surgery done maybe in a year but until then is there any way to slow my condition Like special glasses or something?

I am having floaters which is very annoying heard of laser floater removal. Is it performed anywhere in india?

BDS, MDS
Dentist, Gorakhpur
You are just 21 so do not take stress. Over a period of time floaters reduces in size and becomes less annoying. YAG laser can treat your problem but unfortunately in india success rate is low though many self proclaimed specialist can perform it. Now you know the risk so do a thorough study before accepting the treatment.

FPRS, DNB Ophtalmology

first you need to get your eyes tested for any glass power wear protective glasses while you r travelling to avoid dust and dirt entering the eyes.. Take frequent breaks while studying and dip a handkerchief in cold water and keep it over closed eyes for 2 minutes during breaks, you will feel better

Eyesight is -1.5 . Suggest the best way to correct it so that I can avoid glasses.

Fellowship in Comprehensive Ophthalmology, DOMS
Ophthalmologist, Sangrur
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 21 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. 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.

Hello, chances of having fungal infection on the private part are high as the area is always covered where air can't pass through as well as it sweats also. But then as well more symptoms are required to know the exact diagnosis. And associated medical condition or symptoms. Medication: meantime, can take homoeopathic medicine - tellurium 30/ 3 times a day daily for 15 days. Revert.

Crossed Eyes - How Can It Be Treated

Crossed Eyes - How Can It Be Treated

Vision is one of our most important senses. Reduced vision that triggers the need for corrective glasses is one of the most common disorders associated with the eyes. Crossed eyes are another such common disorder that affects the eyes. In medical terms it is also known as Strabismus. This condition is a result of miscommunication between the brain and the eye muscles that result in misalignment of the eyes. It is largely a hereditary condition and should not be confused with a lazy eye syndrome.

Crossed eyes can cause double vision and disorientation. Your depth perception may also be affected. It also causes eye strains and headaches that affect the quality of your life. This condition is seen mostly in children. If not treated in time, it can continue into the adult years as well. The development of crossed eyes in adults who have not suffered from this condition as children is usually a sign of a serious condition such as a stroke.

Some symptoms characteristic of this condition are:

  1. Independent movement of eye balls
  2. Tilting the head to a side
  3. Squinting
  4. Varied points of reflection in each eye
  5. Frequently bumping into things as a result of impaired depth perception.

Treatment for this condition can be surgical as well as non surgical. Non surgical treatment aims at strengthening the eye muscles and treating the visual system as a whole. The aim is to not allow the eye to become lazy or amblyopic. Wearing an eye patch over the strong eye and forcing the weak eye to be used is one of the most common form of this treatment. Corrective glasses can also be used to treat this condition in cases where it has been triggered by excessive farsightedness. In some cases, medication may also be injected into the eye to relax the eye muscles.

Surgery to correct this disorder involves correcting vision by strengthening or weakening the eye muscles. To do this, a surgeon must first make a small incision in the outer layer of the eyeball to reach the affected muscles. To strengthen the muscle a small section is removed from the muscle and the remaining part is then rejoined. This makes the muscle shorter and forces the eye to turn towards that side. Alternatively, the doctor may make a partial cut across the muscle to elongate it and let the eye turn further away from it.
