Hello lybrate-user. I have a few suggestions for you: (1) get a physician opinion for assessment of various systems in the body. If needed, a neurological opinion would be good. (2) get your blood pressure assessed (mostly it is likely to be normal). (3) avoid tobacco consumption in any form (tobacco chewing, smoking) (4) avoid mental stress if possible. If the assessment by the physician is normal, you could try meditation. In meditation, after closing your eyes, it would be a good idea to focus at a point between the 2 eyes located on the center of the forehead. The basic idea of meditation is to attain a thoughtless state. This may be achieved by passing through various stages. In the initial stages the mind is bound to get a thousand different thoughts with the eyes closed. Allow this to happen. Do not resist the thoughts. Just try and focus on the hypothetical third eye. This will gradually bring you to the peaceful thoughtless final stage of meditation. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care.

Tips on How To Keep Eyes Healthy!

Tips on How To Keep Eyes Healthy!

Your eyes are an important part of your health. There are many things you can do to keep them healthy and make sure you are seeing your best. Follow these simple steps for maintaining healthy eyes well into your golden years.

  • Regular checkup: Get your eyes regularly checked once a year after the age of 40 years as it helps to detect age-related ocular changes like macular degeneration (the part of the retina that processes light deteriorates), cataracts (the lens of your eye becomes cloudy) and glaucoma (pressure in the eye damages the optic nerve). 
  • Eat Well: Eat healthy diet, include food rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Lutein, Zinc, etc. which includes all green, yellow and red vegetables, fruits and fish as it is rich in omega-3 fatty acid. All these food prevents early degeneration in eyes and also delays the onset of cataract. To get them, fill your plate with:
    • Green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale, and collards
    • Salmon, tuna, and other oily fish
    • Eggs, nuts, beans, and other nonmeat protein sources
    • Oranges and other citrus fruits or juices
    • Oysters and pork

A well-balanced diet also helps you stay at a healthy weight. That lowers your odds of obesity and related diseases like type 2 diabetes, which is the leading cause of blindness in adults.

  • First Eye Exam: Children should have their first eye exam between the ages of 6 and 12 months as it is important to detect visual problems as it is vital to ensure your child has the visual skills that that will have the ability to learn in school.
  • Healthy Lifestyle: Maintain a healthy lifestyle to prevent any eye damage due to diabetes, hypertension, etc.  
  • Quit Smoking: Quit smoking or don’t start as it is known that smoking increases the rate of macular degeneration and early cataract formation. It makes you more likely to get cataracts, damage to your optic nerve, and macular degeneration. If you've tried to kick the habit before only to start again, keep at it. The more times you try to quit, the more likely you are to succeed. Ask your doctor for help.
  • Wear Sunglasses: Always wear your corrected prescription as advised by your doctor Wear sunglasses/shades whenever you go out in sunlight as you need to protect your eyes from harmful UV radiation from the sun. The right pair of shades will help protect your eyes from the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays. Too much UV exposure boosts your chances of cataracts and macular degeneration. Choose a pair that blocks 99% to 100% of UVA and UVB rays.
  • Use Safety Eyewear: Use safety glasses while playing games like hockey, racquet ball to prevent eye injury. If you use hazardous or airborne materials on the job or at home, wear safety glasses or protective goggles. Look Away From the Computer Screen: Staring at a computer or phone screen for too long can cause:
    • Eyestrain
    • Blurry vision
    • Trouble focusing at a distance
    • Dry eyes
    • Headaches
    • Neck, back, and shoulder pain
  • Follow the Rule: If you are an avid screen reader/computer user follow the rule of 20/20/20 i.e. look at 20 feet distance, after every 20 minutes for 20 second. This will help your eyes to take rest and also improve the blinking rate for lubrication. 
  • To protect your eyes:
    • Make sure your glasses or contacts prescription is up to date and good for looking at a computer screen.
    • If your eye strain won’t go away, talk to your doctor about computer glasses.
    • Try to avoid glare from windows and lights. Use an anti-glare screen if needed.
    • If your eyes are dry, blink more.
    • Drink plenty of water to prevent dryness in your eyes. 
    • Wash your hands regularly and avoid touching eyes as much as possible to prevent eye infections and lumps (stye) in the lids. 
    • Don’t use any self-medication as some drops may contain steroid, and after long use of it can lead to cataract, glaucoma and infection in the eye. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a ophthalmologist.

Hello. Dear there is nothing as such that will reduce your eyes number. Please do not be misguided by this. Better just get your eye massage done so that internal muscles gets toned up and your numbers will be not increasing anymore. And may be by that. Your number may reduce. But please don't use any such eye drops. Take care.:)

How you can relax your eyes after working on the Computer all day

MD in Ophthalmology, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
How you can relax your eyes after working on the Computer all day

In today’s world, most of the work that you do is on your computer. With an increasingly digitized world, computers can’t be replaced. Though they have made your work easier, they do come with certain disadvantages as well. The rays emitted by a computer screen can be harmful to your eyes if exposed for an extended duration.

It is important that you take certain precautionary measures to protect your eyes:

1. Wash your eyes: Wash your eyes on a regular basis; it facilitates cooling and relaxation of the eyes. Make it a routine to wash your eyes at least 5 to 6 times in a day.

2. Get computer glasses: Use computer glasses to protect your eyes as they help to minimize the effect of the radiation from the screen. If you work for long hours in front of the computer, then you should consider getting a pair of computer glasses.

3. The position of your screen: The screen should ideally be positioned at an arm’s length and the viewing angle of the monitor should be around 35 degrees. Make sure you position your chair accordingly keeping these tips in mind.

4. Eye exercise: You should exercise your eyes to reduce the strain and relax your eyes. Follow the 20-20 rule wherein after working on your computer for 20 minutes, you redirect your gaze to an object that is around 20 feet away. This helps your eye muscles to relax and thus, improves your eye health.

5. Don’t work at a stretch: Take breaks in between your work sessions to reduce fatigue in your eyes. Constantly staring at a screen for an extended amount of time can cause problems in your eye. Take 2 minute breaks for every 30 minutes you spend working on your computer. This helps to reduce the strain on your eyes also helps to release tension in the muscles of the neck and back.

6. Blink more than usual: Blinking moistens your eyes and causes tear production which does not allow the eye to suffer from dryness. It also prevents eye irritation and helps in clearing out dirt from the eyes. If you wish to discuss about any specific eye problem, you can consult a specilized opthamologist and ask a free question.
