This may be due to many factors. Firstly your lashes might be sticking together due to secretions and on cleaning those are removed n you see clearly. Second reason could be fuchs dystrophy in which vision improves not with cleaning but as the day advance vision improves.

Water comes out from my eyes when I concentrate in something for a long time. What should I do?

Make sure you are reading in adequate light, correct distance (about 40 cm for reading books or mobile, 60 to 70 cm for computers), etc. If you are sure everything else you are doing is as per routine standards, but still watering continues, get yourself a complete (called comprehensive) eye evaluation by an ophthalmologist.

If I smell my own armpits then I get sex mood y If I see girls blouse after that I were why It's normal or eels.

MD - Obstetrtics & Gynaecology, MBBS
Gynaecologist,
If I smell my own armpits then I get sex mood y
If I see girls blouse after that I were why
It's normal or eels.
There are many men who get aroused by the smell of their own sweat.....and this is NORMAL....perhaps you like what you smell...... Its an inborn thing, perhaps you may have men aged your age who may not like their armpit smell.....this is ok too, or perhaps they are not keeping it hygenic.......and hence they get put off by the smell..... so its okay to have some arousal and sexy mood after smelling your own body part or armpit If you a girls blouse and want to wear it, it could signify that you like to cross dress ........THIS doesnot make you GAY!!!! Please remember while growing up there are many signals which create a deep impact on our psyche and it moulds our behaviour. At your age of 20, it is perfectly natural to have "ambisexual or bisexual beahviour and tendencies" Even if a man have sex with men it doesnt make him gay, it is just a passing phase. If you indulge in this cross dressing and make it a habit to masturbate ONLY after doing this ded, it may make you a bit uncomfortable to masturbate when the "blouse" is not there..... So dont fall into the trap......keep it away as far as possible and try to enjoy your sex and arousal at masturbation WITHOUT wearing the blouse....... DONT make it a habit. or it will be difficult to leave it later when u marry

I have red since so many I go through doctor they said your eyes is very sensitive please I need your help.
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--------------------- Report after 5 days----------------------

allergy can be controlled easily using eye drops. But there are many eye drops and specific eye drops can only be prescribed after seeing the eye clinically as treatment depends on severity. also dip a handkerchief in little cold water and keep over closed eyes.. you will feel better

Ayurveda therapies and medications could help improve your quality of vision and strengthen your eyes. In Your case i think patching of less numbered eye for about 2 hours a day would equalize the vision in both eyes..

TIPS FOR EYE HEALTH AND MAINTAINING GOOD EYESIGHTS

1. Eat for Good Vision

Nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, lutein, zinc, and vitamins C and E might help ward off age-related vision problems such as macular degeneration and cataracts. Regularly eating these foods can help lead to good eye health:

# Green, leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, and collards
# Salmon, tuna, and other oily fish
# Eggs, nuts, beans, and other non-meat protein sources
# Oranges and other citrus fruits or juices

2. Quit Smoking

Smoking makes you more likely to get cataracts, optic nerve damage, and macular degeneration.

3. Wear Sunglasses

The right kind of sunglasses will help protect your eyes from the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays.
Too much UV exposure makes you more likely to get cataracts and macular degeneration.
Choose sunglasses that block 99% to 100% of both UVA and UVB rays. Wraparound lenses help protect your eyes from the side.

4. Use Safety Eyewear

If you work with hazardous or airborne materials on the job or at home, wear safety glasses or protective goggles every time.
Certain sports such as ice hockey, racquetball, and lacrosse can also lead to eye injury. Wear eye protection (such as helmets with protective face masks or sports goggles with polycarbonate lenses) to shield your eyes.

5. Look Away From the Computer Screen

Staring at a computer screen for too long can cause:

# Eyestrain
# Blurry vision
# Trouble focusing at a distance
# Dry eye

it cant be reduced.. Glasses, contact lenses and surgery are the only three options for good vision if you having spectacle power. If you not comfortable with glasses or contact lens, you can plan lasik surgery after a proper prelasik checkup but only after the age of 18 years..

Is lasik laser is good for eyes does it has any side effect.

Lasik is done only after a complete check up of the eyes of the patient. It is a good method to get rid of glasses. Just choose a good and experienced surgeon.

Hi I have a few suggestions for you regarding the usage of computers, mobile phones and books. Follow the rule of" 20" this means that every 20 minutes, take a gap of 20 seconds, blink your eyes actively 20 times and focus at an object which is minimum 20 feet away. This will help in relieving your eyes from the continuous strain that is caused due to staring. Staring at the computer continuously causes us to subconsciously blink less than normal. This causes the tear film on the surface of the eye to dry up. The result of this is pain, discomfort, etc. Another suggestions regarding the usage of computers is to maintain a proper posture. The computer must be positioned at the same height as your eye level. The neck should not be inadvertently flexed or extended. Remember the rule of 90. Roughly, an angle of 90 degrees should be maintained between your upper body and thighs. Likewise, a similar angle (90 degrees) should be maintained between your lower legs and thighs. Also the angle between your hands and arms should be roughly 90 degrees. This is the healthy ergonomic way of sitting while using a computer. Maintenance of proper posture would help in further relieving the symptoms of eye discomfort and pain. Also remember the rule of 1. At least 1 time in a day, wash your eyes with clean hands and clean water in a gentle manner. Exercise for at least 1 hour in a day. Try to spend 1 hour with nature. (eg. In a park, garden, etc.) you could consider preservative free lubricant eye drops 4 to 5 times daily. These eye drops would ensure that your eyes stay well lubricated and fresh. All these suggestions may take a while to sink in and imbibe in your routine. Once followed, they are sure to work wonders for you. You could also use a preservative free lubricant eye drop 4 to 5 times in a day. Also, adequate sleep of 7 hours a day is essential in order to maintain healthy eyes. Hope my suggestions help you. Take care. Regards.

could be because of many reasons but commonly it is due to allergy or infection. You need to visit eye specialist to differentiate between the two as the treatment is different. Also get your eyes checked for any glass power

Hello. I think you have allergic conjunctivitis. 1. Eye allergies, called allergic conjunctivitis, are a common condition that occurs when the eyes react to something that irritates them (called an allergen). 2. The eyes produce a substance called histamine to fight off the allergen. As a result, the eyelids and conjunctiva (the thin, filmy membrane that covers the inside of your eyelids) become red, swollen and itchy, with tearing and burning. The key to treating eye allergies is a. Avoid or limit contact with the substance causing the problem. B. Avoid rubbing eyes instead do cold compresses. Use antiallergic eyedrop along with lubricating eyedrop. This will help you I am very sorry dear to say that there is no medicine that can cure allergy. Only way is to stay away from all those things that you are allergic to.

The solution for this problem is its reduced usage and while using computor use in proper light. There is nothing more effective than controlling usage to reduce and negate the effects. You can also reduce the intensity of the computor screen by attaching a filter or by getting an eye-friendly screen. Above all, one must try to reduce the amount of computor usage or take frequent breaks. Homoeopathic medicine CINELUBE EYE DROPS ( HAPDCO) Pour 2 drops 3 times daily.
