My 2 months son's right eye watering from birth. His eye looks small. Please advise.

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Pediatrician, Tumkur
It's due to blockade of the nasolacrimal duct. It takes 6 to 12 months to open up. You must do massaging from the inner angle of the nose downwards morning and evening 20 to 30 times a day.

I was interested in knowing different treatment options for keratoconus in my left eye. Just to give a back ground, I was operated for keratoconus in my right eye through deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty(dalk) way back in 2006 and the results were outstanding. Then problem is I am a working professional and cannot afford to be off work for a long period of time, which I will have to do in case I opted for dalk again. My treatment was undertaken at rp centre delhi. I heard about a new corneal cross-linking treatment done using riboflavin and uv exposure to cornea. I am not sure if this has still made it's way in india. Any guidance I can have will be much appreciated. P. S. Lasik in not a recommended treatment for keratoconus since thickness of our indian cornea is way less than the avenue thickness as in other western countries.

You must have advanced keratoconus in left eye, and underwent dalk keratoconus is a bilateral disease and one eye is affected more. As for the other eye if its progressing and corneal thickness is greater than 360micrometer, you can undergo c3r, which started in rpc in 2008. However if not progressing contact lens is best option, as surgery is not so predictable. You had a great surgery in one eye doesn't mean same for other eye. If you need any help at rpc aiims, I can help you as I have worked there for six years.

Implantable columnar lenses best for eye or specs please suggest me because I am suffering from very low vision.

Hello both are good. It is your choice 1. Implantable lenses/lasik is cosmetic surgery to get rid of glasses. 2. If you r comfortable using glasses then wear glasses but if you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik or implantable lenses.

ur symptoms are allergic which are worsened by worsening air pollution courtesy dialing and fire crackers. u need to continue with systemic anti-allergics. For eye allergies, start cold compresses. depending on severity , other 1-3 drops will have to be instilled.

I have some long sight problem could you please to reduce it? For that give me some advices?

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 25 years so your number will not increase much 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.

Hello madam, eye flu is usually viral which may last upto 2-3 weeks in majority of patients. This redness might be due to some other cause.

I am suffering from eye problems since 6 year and wearing glasses how to remove my glasses.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, you can go for lasik eye surgery under a good eye surgeon. You should do these eye muscle strengthening exercises;- Warm your eyes. Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Repeat this three times. Roll your eyes. Start by looking up and then slowly circle 10 times clockwise and 10 times counterclockwise. Focus. Hold a pen at arm's length, focus your eyes on it, and slowly bring the pen closer until it's about 6 inches away from your nose. Then slowly move it back, keeping your eyes focused on the pen, 10 times in all. Massage your temples. Using your thumb knuckles, massage your temples in small circles, 20 times in one direction and 20 in the other. Repeat the same actions above the mid-point of the eyebrows at the forehead, then below the eyes on both sides of the bridge of the nose. Take a mini-nap. Put your head back, close your eyes, and relax for 3 minutes. Insufficient sleep may weaken your vision, so shoot for 8 hours of sound sleep a night. Rest your eyes 10 minutes for every 50 minutes spent reading or in front of the computer. If your eyes feel overly tired, lie down and place cooling cucumber slices over your eyelids.

Continuously reading small print without proper light should be avoided. Smart phone may cause strain. Don't expose your eyes to extreme sunny weather of cold windy weather. Don't be closer to people with eye infections as you may contact the infection. Get your eyes tested for any vision problem. Homoeopathy has effective treatment for your problem without adverse effects. Take belldonna 200 ---once daily in the morning for 5 days.

Is there any exercises or remedies to improve the eye sight completely that make me free of spectacles?

FICO, DNB Ophtalmology
Ophthalmologist, Gandhinagar
Hello. Unfortunately, there is no such exercise which would make you free of spectacles. Yes, there are a few precautions which would prevent the spectacle power from increasing further. Let me enumerate the diet necessary for healthy eyes. (1) green leafy vegetables including spinach, sprouts, cabbage, beetroot. (2) fruits-blue-berries, black-berries, strawberries, raspberries, kiwi fruit, grapes, pineapple, pomegranate, grapes, guava. (3) dry-fruits: almonds, walnuts, apricots, dates. (4) cereals: oats, barley, millets. (5) drink a cup of green tea daily. (6) drink a glass of milk daily. Also, I have a few suggestions for you regarding the usage of computers, mobile phones and books. 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. 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. 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.) you could consider preservative free lubricant eye drops 4 to 5 times daily. 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. Take care-regards.

FPRS, DNB Ophtalmology
Ophthalmologist, Pune
Here are some useful tips on contact lens wear and care to help you get the best out of your contact lenses. Do Have regular check-ups as advised by your practitioner Always wash and dry your hands prior to handling your lenses Always rub, rinse and store your lenses in the recommended solution before and after each use (except single-use lenses, which should be discarded after each wear) Always clean the lens case with solution, wipe with a clean tissue then air-dry after each use by placing the case and lids face down on a tissue Always apply the same lens first to avoid mixing them up Check the lens is not inside out before applying Check the lens is not damaged before applying Handle carefully to avoid damaging the lens Apply your lenses before putting on make-up Remove lenses then remove make-up Keep your eyes closed when using hairspray or other aerosols Replace your lens case at least monthly Discard lenses and solutions that are past their expiry date Wear only the lenses specified by your contact lens practitioner Stick strictly to the recommended wearing schedule and replacement frequency Make sure you have an adequate supply of replacement lenses or a spare pair Have an up-to-date pair of spectacles for when you need to remove your lense Don’t Use tap water, or any other water, on your lenses or lens case Wet your lenses with saliva Put a lens on the eye if it falls on the floor or other surface, without cleaning and storing again Apply a lens if it is dirty, dusty or damaged Continue to wear your lenses if your eyes don’t feel good, look good, or see well Re-use or top up solution – discard and replace with fresh solution each time lenses are stored Decant solution into smaller containers Wear lenses left in the case for more than seven days without cleaning and storing them in fresh solution Sleep in your lenses unless specifically advised to by your practitioner Wear any lens overnight if you are unwell Use your lenses for swimming, hot tubs or water sports, unless wearing goggles Wear your lenses when showering unless you keep your eyes firmly closed Switch the solution you use except on the advice of your practitioner Use any eye drops without advice from your contact lens practitioner Share contact lenses or wear any lenses not specified by your practitioner Remember that if you have any questions about your contact lenses you should consult your eyecare practitioner for advice.
