What is left eye conjunctivitis and left eye iridocyclitis (traumatic? How can it affect the other eye?

What is left eye conjunctivitis and left eye iridocyclitis (traumatic? How can it affect the other eye?
Hi lybrate-user. Conjunctivitis is usually caused by infection or allergy of the conjunctiva (the white portion that is visible in the eye). Iridocyclitis tends to affect the iris and the ciliary muscle of the eye. Iridocyclitis, as you mentioned, may occur due to trauma or in certain infections. It should be taken seriously. Trauma may cause inflammation in the eye, which in turn could affect the iris (the structure that gives the eye its color). Iridocyclitis may cause pain, blurring of vision, and redness. If it is of traumatic origin, it would usually not affect the other eye. On the other hand, conjunctivitis has more chances of spreading to the other eye if proper hygiene is not maintained. Rubbing both eyes with fingers or using handkerchief to wipe both eyes could result in spread of the conjunctivitis from one eye to the other. Let me know if you require further assistance.

In disease like diabetes and hypertension, the systemic metabolic control of blood sugar levels, blood pressure, cholesterol levels etc is very important since diagnosis. This helps reduce and slow down the inevitable damage to various small n larger blood vessels and help in prolonging life. Unfortunately, the first few years control is ignored as the patient is largely asymptomatic as the body compensates for gradual damage. U r father seems to have gone into a stage of proliferative diabetic retinopathy and has undergone retinal surgery. The prognosis depends on extent of damage and existing blood supply to macula. It is difficult to comment without any further info.

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 16 years so your number will 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. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

Hello lybrate-user, for healthy functioning of body and eyes you should eat a balanced diet with more of green vegetables and fruits. If you are non vegetarian consider eating fish twice a week. Also spend minimum time possible on screens (mobile n computer). Antiglare glasses do not help eyesight per se but they help get better vision in strong lights (esp while driving) and while working on screens. You can get your spectacles removed by lasik surgery but only when you are 18+ and your glasses power is stable for atleast 6 months. Take care.

I have age spot only below my left eye, it makes it appear like a sunken eye. I have got laser, chemical peeling, microdermabrasion for that but it just does not go. The doctor says it will need another laser session but it will again leave a mark. Any solution? I just apply a concealer on it everyday to hide it.

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

First of all you should take rest for 1-2 days so that your body can fight with underlying infection with its full immunity and start the below medication:- take belladonna 200, twice daily. Take eupatrium perf 200, 5 drops thrice daily. Take antifebrinum 3x, 2 tabs, thrice daily. Take alfavena malt, 1 tsf, thrice daily. Drink lots of water and take light homemade food like dalia and khichdi, avoid oily, spicy, fried, junk and cold drinks. If fever does not goes then go for a set of blood tests. Revert me with feedback. Take care of your health. Good day.

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 are few things you can take care of. Otherwise as such no options available which can increase your eyesight.
