Unfortunately there are no natural medications to remove spectacles permanently. You can either try contact lenses or plan for refractive surgery.

Hello doctor. Please tell me the symptom of colour blindness and how can it be treated?
In day to day life it is very difficult to detect color blindness, till you asked to recognize letters in Ishihara's test, there is no treatment for color blindness ,it is genetically transferred from mother or father side, colour blindness is only manifested in male & females are not colour blind but just they are carrier of genes of colour blindness, with regards.

Strain On Eye - How It Can Cause Headache?

Strain On Eye - How It Can Cause Headache?

Eye Strain is an umbrella term that denotes a number of symptoms that relate to the extended use of eyes as well as discomfort that may come from excessive smartphone and computer use. This condition may or may not lead to significant eye damage and is usually characterised by blurry vision, headaches and a feeling of dryness in the eye as you blink less which creates less tears. This may happen due to the extended use of the eye when you are following objects on a screen or staring at a screen for too long. So, is eye strain the cause of your headaches?

Causes: Eye Strain or Asthenopia is caused by concentrating on visually intense tasks like reading from texts that have a fine print, the use of computers and other screens for prolonged periods, and trying to focus on objects in the dark. This can lead to distress of the muscles in this area which can also cause eye strain leading to a variety of symptoms including double imagery and even headaches and mild migraine like conditions.

Eye Muscle Imbalance: When there is eye strain which leads to headaches, it can also give rise to eye muscle imbalance which makes it difficult to concentrate with both eyes at the same time. In such cases, one may need bifocal glasses so as to fix the issue and prevent such debilitating headaches to remain on a persistent basis.

Diagnosis: Digital eye fatigue and ocular eye strain leading to headaches can be diagnosed by a doctor with the help of regular eye examinations. In any case, one should have the eyes checked at least once a year. This is especially important if your job involves sitting in front of the computer screen for prolonged hours.

Symptoms: There are a variety of symptoms of these headaches that are caused by eye strain. Apart from blurry vision which does not allow the patient to see properly and clearly without glasses, it can also cause headaches with symptoms like nausea and sensitivity to light. Retinal or eye migraines do not necessarily have to come with headaches, but the pressure can be painful enough.

Treatment: To begin with, the best form of treatment for headaches born from eye strain includes prevention which can be done by getting plenty of rest and sleep even as we limit the hours spent in front of the screen. One can also lower the resolution of the screen and make it more ambient. Also, the screen should be placed at a considerable distance from the eyes. The doctor can also prescribe glasses and eye drops for better eye lubrication.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My wife suddenly lost her right eye sight since about three weeks. Doctors say she has Hemorrhage and blood clot behind her right eye or may be within her retina. Doctors say she needs an injection in her right eye or surgery with the said injection. The doctors can't say whether bleeding in her eye will permanently stop after one surgery - they say bleeding may continue even after surgery and similar operation with injection needs to be repeated with each such bleeding. Each such surgery and injection will cost about 50K + 10K = rupees 60 K. What should be done now? What is this disease? Any solution? Thanks for a response.

This type of bleeding problem is often seen in people with long term uncontrolled diabetes or blood pressure OR both. Other rarer causes include some bleeding disorders, medications to prevent stroke (blood thinning agents), etc. If not done already, you shall consult a Physician (Internist, General Medicine) to evaluate and treat the primary cause. Your eye doctors have correctly suggested the available surgical treatment, and their limitations as well.

You are suffering from squamous blepharitis in which white dandruff like material get deposited on lid margin ,in long run lids gets thickened & gradually eyelashes get lost  causing redness & intense itching in eyes ,it is directly related with dandruff in the scalpe. There in no cure for it ,but you may get relief if you follow as advised below.       Take a small amount of sodium bicarbonate  (mitta soda in Hindi) in a bowel (katora) fill it with  clean water (200 ml)& also add a piece of cotton ,boil it  ,let it be cool at bearable temperature ,clean lid margin with cotton in front of mirror, your eye lids will be cleaned because dandruff or white material is soluble in sodium bicarbonate, let allow lids to dry. When lids gets dried, you should apply optithrocin Eye ointment+ neosporin H Eye ointment 3- 4 times daily & rub it on lid margin clean index finger, you should clean daily at least for 3 months& apply ointment as told above. For dandruff in scalp you should use Nuforce Anti Dandruff lotion at least once or twice a week depending on severity.
