My friend had an Eye trauma. Is there any type of surgery that can allow someone to close their eye and blink normally after a serious eye accident?

It is more likely that your friend has sustained some nerve damage which supplies to eyes which is preventing him/her from blinking the eyes. For this you may consult a neuro-ophthalmologist in your vicinity for further management depending upon the power eyelid muscles. But as such there is no surgery for regain blinking movement of eye.

Hello, you can take homoeopathic medicine belladonna 30 (4 drops in little water) thrice a day for 3 days and update. *massaging the head with soothing oils is also an excellent way to get relief from head pain. *avoid stress and anger. *take a sound sleep. If pain continues, then go for eye check up.

You have written that your eyesight is proper, have you got it checked by the doctor? if not, then you may be having vision defect which you are not aware of. Sometimes even if the vision is ok then you may have headache due to convergence deficiency. If you are lying down & reading books at night then also you can have headache.

Mr. Lybrate-user, fasting 111 mg & pp 149 mg /100 ml is in the category of pre-diabetes. Normal blood glucose: 70 to 110 mg fasting, pp <140 mg, pre-diabetes fasting 108 to 125 mg & pp 141 to 199 mg. Confirmed diabetes fasting 126 mg and above & pp 200 mg and above. Since you are in a pre-diabetes stage, it necessary to take certain precautions like avoid sweets, deep fried foods, pastries and bakery items, items made from maida and high fat containing foods. Exercise regularly for 1 hour a day to maintain normal weight.

Hello I was diagnosed with corneal scar due to conjunctivitis. I was on prednisolone drops in stage by stage process. Visited doctor he told right eye has reduced but left eye still has some scars. Hence he gave tacrolimus ointment to be applied night. I applied night and morning my eyes were like burning and irritation. Is it common or should I stop using them. Please suggest.

Hello lybrate-user. From the symptoms described by you, it seems that you have been suffering from viral keratoconjunctivitis. It is a viral infection of the eye and tends to take long periods of time to resolve. By long periods, I mean that it may take months (upto 6 months) to completely heal. If you have been prescribed tacrolimus and its causing a lot of burning with irritation, it might be a good idea to use a lubricant eye drop copiously. Tacrolimus is known to cause burning, irritation and pricking. You could use a lubricant eye drop 8-10 times in a day. It would help in easing your discomfort. I would suggest not to stop the tacrolimus therapy without the consent of your cornea specialist. Hope my suggestions helped you.

Dear lybrate-user. You can use goggles when in sunlight. Cold compresses (soak cotton in cold water and put it over your eyes) will help a lot and use lubricating eyedrop.

Macular Degeneration - All You Want to Know About

Super-Speciality Trained Ophthalmologists

Even something as small as an eyeball, has multiple parts within it. The retina at the back of the eyeball is responsible for the clarity of vision. The central area of the retina is known as the macula. Macular degeneration is the deterioration of this part of the retina. Macular degeneration is age related and is considered as an incurable condition. People suffering from macular degeneration experience blurred vision, black spots and may eventually lose central vision while retaining peripheral vision.

There are two types of macular degeneration; wet and dry. The dry form of this disease is more common than its wet form. Of these, the latter causes more serious vision loss. Dry macular degeneration leads to white or yellow deposits on the retina leading to further degeneration. In the wet form of this disease, blood vessels beneath the retina start growing towards the macula and may pull it away from the base when they break or leak fluid.

There are three stages of age related macular degeneration (AMD).
- Early AMD
This is diagnosed by the presence of deposits on the retina. In most cases, ether is no vision loss at this stage but regular check-ups are essential.
- Intermediate AMD
A comprehensive eye exam will show the presence of larger deposits or pigment changes in the retina. At this stage, slight vision loss may be experienced.
- Late AMD
People suffering from late AMD have noticeable vision loss. Though this disease is linked to aging, the exact triggers for macular degeneration are unknown. It is understood to be a combination of hereditary and environmental factors. The presence of certain genes and their variants has been associated with a number of cases of this disease. Studies also show that caucasians are at the highest risk of suffering from this disease. Depriving cells in the retina of oxygen can also increase a person's risk of contracting this disease. Other risk factors for this disease are obesity, smoking, high blood pressure and a light eye colour. The side effects of certain drugs can also induce this condition.

Macular degeneration is considered to be incurable, but certain forms of treatment can improve vision and slow down the rate of deterioration. Treatment prescribed by a doctor depends on stage of the disease and whether it is wet or dry. Studies suggest that a diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids can prevent AMD and lower the risk of its progression.

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.

You can use them for long duration but many time improper handling of lenses cause infection in eye so take care while using them. Change the lenses when they expire.
