Surgery is the only option. But make sure you have good corrected vision in the right eye otherwise it will squint again.

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 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, My wife has got eye stye on the left eye. It started with one where she used to have pain. This was converted into a pimple and no pain in that now. However, she has developed another stye on the left corner of the same eye. It is paining a lot but no pimple yet. Now I have below questions: 1. Does she need to take any medication or it can heal on its on. 2. We heard that once it starts, there will be minimum 6 or 7 stye. Is it true. If yes how to avoid it. 3. Is it contagious. What precautions we need to take as we have two kids. Appreciate your early response. Thanks, ankush Chaudhari.

I have red eye for last one month to what I should to do not to Red my eyes please tell me.

FICO, DNB Ophtalmology

I have red eye for last one month to what I should to do not to Red my eyes please tell me.
Redness of the eyes has multiple causes associated with it. To enumerate a few common causes: (1) allergy of the eye. It is usually caused by improper eye hygiene. There is a tendency to rub the eyes with fingers, handkerchief, cloth, etc. This is not a good habit because it tends to transmit lots of virus, bacteria and dust into the eye. Allergy usually presents with symptoms of watering (clear water), redness and itching of the eye. (2) infectious conjunctivitis: this is usually associated with white-yellowish discharge. If so, it would be a good idea to go and show to an eye specialist in person. (3) foreign body lodged in the eye. This is more commonly associated with people who drive 2 wheeler vehicles without protection. It occurs more commonly in one eye. Foreign bodies that commonly get lodged are eyelashes, insect wings, small insects, dust particles, iron particles (more common with people working in the iron industry) the solution for a foreign body lodged in the eye would be better provided by an eye specialist at the clinic. (4) raised intraocular pressure: this is a condition known as glaucoma. It is not so common as the previous mentioned conditions. There is usually associated pain in the eyes. It is commonly bilateral (occurs in both eyes). There is usually a positive family history of glaucoma associated in a majority of the cases. (5) inflammation of the coats of the eyeball. This is known as" uveitis" it is also a relatively less common condition. There is associated pain. It would require a thorough eye checkup including the retina-thus a good idea would be to visit the eye specialist in person. (6) increased blood pressure. This has known to cause redness which is also known as sub-conjunctival hemorrhage. In this regard, a complete ophthalmic evaluation and a systemic evaluation is warranted. From the symptoms described by you, it seems more likely to be a case of allergy. Maintaining the precautions and hygiene that I mentioned should probably work well for you.

I'm suffering from headache from 2 years I always my eye and headache pain please sir suggested me what should I do?
The most common causes of headaches are stress, exposure to strong sunlight or bright lights, inadequate and irregular food and water intake and sinusitis. You seem to already been diagnosed as tension headache. It is due to build up of muscle tension in response to stress. So you need to learn different methods of handling and dealing with stress. Meditation, pranayam, yoga, self hypnosis, reiki are some of the relaxation techniques you may try. For associated eye pain is most likely referred, but can also be due to sinusitis, eye muscle imbalance and uncorrected refractive error. Please get an eye checkup done to make sure your eyes are healthy.

At the time of sleeping also my eyes are open only, usually whenever I am in deep sleep eyes getting open.

At the time of sleeping also my eyes are open only, usually whenever I am in deep sleep eyes getting open.
one of the initial ways to treat nocturnal lagophthalmos is by simply wearing a mask while snoozing. So, we thought we’d try just that! We recently tried a pair of specialized goggles that provided coverage, comfort and a hot compress option by TranquilEyes. The Eye Hydrating Therapy Goggles not only helped seal our eyes and protect them from drafts and drying out during the night, they also blocked all light for a comfortable, undisturbed slumber. (An added bonus? The flexible, hypoallergenic goggles come with beads that can be conveniently heated in the microwave to stimulate tear production. The beads can also be placed in the freezer to reduce eye puffiness and relieve itch.) - See more at: http://allaboutdryeye.com/2013/04/03/sleeping-with-your-eyes-open/#sthash.rtGeFPvq.dpuf

MBBS, DOMS

The eyes continue to get further remodelled for about six months or even upto one year. You may wait and see for improvement. Even a repeat LASIK can be done, provided there is enough residual bed in cornea, and on how much was the original power corrected. Actually, 0.5 spherical power is hardly noticeable, you may even ignore this and it will not affect most types of lifestyles.

Get your refraction done and wear spectacles Eat green veggies. Carrots. Strain less your eyes. Relax your eyes in between work. Blink regularily if working for long time on computer. Lower the brightness of your screen. Work under adequately illuminated conditions. If needed wear corrective spectacles. These r few things you can take care of. Otherwise as such no options available which wd increases your eyesight.
