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 as your age is now 21 years so 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 after age of 18 yrs.

There is echymosis and subcutaneous haemorrhage which has spread to the eyes. Get xray for nose and the orbits to rule out fractures. Ent and eye exam is required to rule out serious underlying injuries.

I have constipation in my stomach and irritation in my eyes and throat. I have red eyes along three days.
Hello, I am giving you some tips to prevent constipation: 1. Take 6-8 glass of water in a day 2. Regular physical activity keeping mobile and active will greatly reduce your risk of getting constipation. Ideally do at least 150 minutes of physical activity every week. 3. You should have about 30 g of fibre a day. You can increase your fibre intake by eating more: I am giving you list of some fibre containing food fruit vegetables wholegrain rice whole wheat pasta wholemeal bread seeds oats 4. Toilet habits never ignore the urge to go to the toilet consult physician for further management.

My daughter is 8 year old and good at studies and quite bright child. The problem is with her EQ. She usually has her opinion on everything and will make sure that it is been followed. She does not follow what we say at once usually. Sometimes in front of others, when she does something which we have told her not to do, it causes stress and anger in us. She wants us to give her complete attention all the time, which can not happen all the time. (incase of guests etc) during such times she demands for the tv. Which if I do not give. She starts irritating me. And after that she get the avoiding she gets into denial mode. So whatever is been told to do she will say no for it. How should I handle it?

Dear lybrate-user, it must be tough dealing with such a child. Give her instructions of what to do and what no to do very gently at a time when she is absolutely calm and receptive. Make her do more physical activities, like dancing, or aerobics or yoga or outdoor sports. This might take away some of her restlessness and regulate her body and mind. Also remember, one should be firm with children. Hope my suggestion helps you.

I have red eyes before three days, what should I do for fresh white eyes? Help me please lol.
Eyes appear red because the vessels at the surface of the white portion of the eye (sclera) become swollen. Vessels may swell due to: • Eye dryness • Too much sun exposure • Dust or other particles in the eye • Allergies • Infection • Injury Homoeopathic medicine EUPHRASIA 30 ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 2 drops direct on tongue every 2-3 hrly CINERARIA /EUPHRASIA EYEDROPS ( SBL ) pour into eyes 1-2 drops 3 times daily If no relief within 2 days,please cosult an Eye specialist for physical examination.

Is night blindness effects day time vision? Nutritional night blindness is curable?

Phaco Development Program, Fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology, DNB Ophtalmology, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Mysore
Nutritional blindness is mostly due to vitamin a deficiency. Proper supplementation can reverse it. Usually night blindedness will not cause day blindedness. But severe deficiencies can cause other complications like whitening of the cornea, lens which will affect vision

Having cyl no. +sph no. Of +3+1.25 on both eyes giving 6/6( R) & 6/9 (L) vision I face difficulty even with glasses, should I go for Lasik at this age of 44 yrs so that at least my dist vision is corrected properly ?

I would not recommend LASIK for the following reasons: 1. LASIK for plus powers is not very predictable. 2. Age: there is more chances of residual power or power changing even after LASIK. It is better that once you start developing cataract go in for early cataract surgery rather than go for LASIK now.

Yes, you can definitely go for it, nowadays going for surgery to remove these numbers is very common and SAFE too. You can go for it, and then again you will start getting proper vision. Its cost almost starts from 15000/- and more. Depending upon the doctors and the city which you live in. Take care :)

Sir. Your bmi is about 27+. Which means you are just overweight. Definitely there is scope for a bit of reduction. That can be done by diet modification of reducing oils and sugar. As for the formula you have given. Please don't believe in this kind of stuff. There is only one way body fat can burn. That is by activity. And diet reduction. Rest all these things are myths. Wish you success in your quest to be fitter and younger.

I have dry eye problem especially when sitting in front of computers in my job. Trying my best to take breaks between work and using eye drops. Is there anything else I can do, any food I should eat more or any medicine. Please advice as I am just 32 with entire Job life ahead.

You can try superior quality lubricant eye drops during day time and lubricant gel drops or ointment at bedtime. Omega 3 fatty acids taken orally are said to benefit some people by improving the corneal health. Moist chamber goggles could help as well. Temporary or permanent punctal plugs, implanted into lower eye lid puncta are shown to benefit some, by retaining natural tears for longer duration within the eyes. To evaluate if you need these things at all and to know the grade of dry eye condition (usually done by Schirmer strip test), you better get examined by an ophthalmologist.
