What is meant by lasik surgeon for eye what they will do in the lasik surgery. Will you plstell me.
Hello lasik is very good option to get rid of glasses Doctor will perform few tests (Schirmer test, Pentacam and Fundus examination) and if all tests are normal then you can go for lasik surgery without fear. Success rate of LASIK is over 96%. Side effects may vary from minimal like mild dryness, DALK, haloes, glare to severe like infection (very rare). Precaution include: a. Avoid face/head wash for 1 week b. Avoid swimming /water sports for 6 weeks c. Avoid eye make up for 6 weeks Cost :depends on Type of lasik which varies from 25000 for standard lasik to 1.10 lacs for SMILE lasik For more details, you can read my health tip on LASIK.

I am basically a Web/App developer and a student too. I spend about 3-5 hours daily for my part time job but recently I have been sticked with some problem in my eyes. I start having tears in my eye while working on laptop, smartphone or during studies. I recently approached an ophthalmologist and he offered me a Anti-Reflective coating lens with -0.25 D and told me that the problem will be solved. He gave me advice that wear these glasses while working on devices and during studies. But still I am encountering the same problem. Please tell me what could I do as irritation, tears start pouring from my eyes. While writing this issue also I get the same problem. Please tell me the solution to the problem. Any medicine or a home treatment or any precaution or any advice. Please suggest as quickly as possible.

lybrate-user, If you have hypothyroidism and on treatment for it, then your TSH level should be between 3 to 4 mU/L, to be free from all the symptoms of that condition. Hypothyroidism also causes depressive tendency and anxiety episodes. Most important is to achieve a very good control of TSH level as mentioned above. You have not mentioned anything of thyroid test results (most recent or present). It is necessary to know whether current thyroxine dosage is adequate at all. Plus you will have to have a healthy diet and exercise daily for 1 hour. That will make you feel better. Thanks.

Is it safe to use contact lenses? or any problems will occur if I use contact lenses? then, please tell me what are the possibilities of side effects of contact lenses.

Phaco Development Program, Fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology, DNB Ophtalmology, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Mysore
If you use contact lenses from a good brand there will be lesser chances of problems. The following points have to be followed while using contact lenses: 1. Dust must not fall in your eyes when you are using lenses. 2. You must not wear them 24 hrs no matter what anyone claims. It is advisable to use them for maximum 10 hours continuously 3. Better to use monthly disposable lenses 4. Cleaning the lenses daily with a good solution is a must.

Red eye has many causes. You have to see if it is associated with blurring of vision, pain, discharge and other complaints. But commonly its allergic or infective in origin ie allergic or infective conjunctivitis. Which has simple treatment protocol. But still its wise to see an ophthalmologist for a thorough slit lamp examination to rule out other differentials for red eye.

Dear lybrate user, red eyes and itching 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
