I have a red eye problem. Little red spot is covered on my face. What should I do now. Please help.

I have a red eye problem. Little red spot is covered on my face. What should I do now. Please help.
Redness of the eyes has multiple causes associated with it. To enumerate a few common causes: (1) allergy of the eye. It is usually caused by improper eye hygiene. There is a tendency to rub the eyes with fingers, handkerchief, cloth, etc. This is not a good habit because it tends to transmit lots of virus, bacteria and dust into the eye. Allergy usually presents with symptoms of watering (clear water), redness and itching of the eye. (2) infectious conjunctivitis: this is usually associated with white-yellowish discharge. If so, it would be a good idea to go and show to an eye specialist in person. (3) foreign body lodged in the eye. This is more commonly associated with people who drive 2 wheeler vehicles without protection. It occurs more commonly in one eye. Foreign bodies that commonly get lodged are eyelashes, insect wings, small insects, dust particles, iron particles (more common with people working in the iron industry) the solution for a foreign body lodged in the eye would be better provided by an eye specialist at the clinic. (4) raised intraocular pressure: this is a condition known as glaucoma. It is not so common as the previous mentioned conditions. There is usually associated pain in the eyes. It is commonly bilateral (occurs in both eyes). There is usually a positive family history of glaucoma associated in a majority of the cases. (5) inflammation of the coats of the eyeball. This is known as" uveitis" it is also a relatively less common condition. There is associated pain. It would require a thorough eye checkup including the retina-thus a good idea would be to visit the eye specialist in person. From the symptoms described by you, it seems more likely to be a case of allergy. Maintaining the precautions and hygiene that I mentioned should probably work well for you. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care.

unfortunately there are no natural medications to remove spectacles permanently. you can either try contact lenses or plan for refractive lasik laser surgery Lasik is a simple laser procedure which changes the shape of the cornea so that the light rays fall on the retina properly. It is a painless procedure. It is a day care procedure does not require any injections, does not require admission, you can simply resume your duties in 2 days. Cost varies from centre to centre. Side effects are usually limited to dryness of eyes for few months. We can do lasik anytime after age of 18 years. You need to undergo proper prelasik checkup to decide whether lasik is safe for you or not

Dear lybrate-user:- as per your stated complaints, you had cataract surgery with difficulty in neer vision. After cataract surgery, 2 months duration should be passed under topical medication. It is period, in which eye tissue return back to their normal function. Post operative refractive error is corrected after 2 month period & best vision is achieved.

Hello dear there are many causes for redness of eyes mainly allergy, infection, inflammation and dry eyes etc. 1. Redness + itching: allergy 2. Redness + pain+ watering + decreased vision: infection 3. Redness + pain: inflammation 4. Redness+ foreign body sensation: dryness if there is only redness then it is normal as slight exposure to dust, temperature or air or eyes may be red in morning. Stress may also cause redness. I usually do not treat when there is only redness, you can 1. Blink a lot 2. Wash eyes with fresh water 3. Cold compresses 4. Use lubricating eyedrop like flogel these measures will help to keep your eyes healthy but it will not have any effect on redness (treating generalredness alone is not necessary also) having said that you should consult local ophthalmologist for proper examination and treatment.

What Should You Know About Diabetic Macular Oedema

Cornea Cataract & Lasik
Ophthalmologist
Ask Free Question
The diabetic eye is considered to be the leading cause of the blindness among the working age. It is usually caused by the change in the blood vessels on the retina of the eye. Retina is that layer of the eye which is light sensitive. In case of diabetic macular oedema, the blood vessels cause the fluid to leak into the retina.

How does diabetic macular oedema cause vision loss?
The loss of vision only occurs when the fluid reaches the macula. Macula is the center of the retina which is responsible for a sharp vision. When the fluid reaches the macula it builds up and causes inflammation. Initially this is not noticed but with time the diabetic macular oedema causes a change in the vision making it more blurred. A healthy macula is very essential for a good vision.

Who is at risk of diabetic macular oedema?
People with type 1 and type 2 diabetes are at a higher risk of getting diabetic macular oedema. Also other risk factors are:
1. About 0ne in three people with diabetes develop macular oedema
2. Poor control of blood sugars
3. High blood pressure
4. High cholesterol level
5. Pregnancy
6. In smokers

How to reduce the risks of diabetic macula oedema?
The risk of diabetic macula oedema can be reduced by quitting smoking, and to make sure that blood sugar and cholesterol levels are under control. This is achieved by regularly measuring the cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

How is diabetic macular oedema detected?
Diabetic macular oedema can be detected during regular visits to the doctor. Patients with diabetes should be offered screening tests. Digital photographs of the patients can be taken as they show the early signs of diabetic macular oedema, though changes in vision might not be noticed at this time.

What happens when you attend the medical retina clinic?
When you go for an eye checkup you will undergo a comprehensive examination which includes:

1. Visual acuity test: this is a sight test which measures how well you can see the different distances

2. Eye pressure test: this test is done to measure the pressure of the eyes and usually drops which numb the eyes are used when this test is conducted

3. Dilated eye examination: in this the drops are placed in the eye to dilate the pupils and then the back of the eye is examined.

4. Fluorescein angiography: this is a diagnostic test in which an injection of fluorescein dye is given in the hand and then the photographs are taken.

5. Optical coherence tomography: this is done to measure the retinal swelling.

Red eyes could be due to many reasons. It could be infective or allergic conjunctivitis, or could even be due to dry eyes. It could also be due to certain more serious problems. Pls do consult your eye doctor. Simple measures for dry eye is to: > relax in between work atleast once every 20min. > consciously make an effort to blink at least 12 times a min > use your computer screen at a lower level than your eyes. > finally, consult an ophthalmologist if these measures do not help.

Contact lens are widely used & has both therapeutic and cosmetic benefits to the patients and users. However not much importance of its hygiene and cleaning adhered to. Clean it regularly on daily basis before & after use. Even you are not using , change solutions daily. Keep your hands clean and sterilized while handling contact lens. Don't start any eyes medications without supervision of ophthalmologist. Whenever you get new complaint or not comfortable with your contact lens , stop using contact lens first & then contact your ophthalmologist immediately. Don't spray on face or use kajal while on contact lens.
