Hello dear I am sorry but there is no way or medicine to recover that burn without leaving scar. Major burns do heal with proper medicines but it will leave a scar for sure. With medicines and laser size of scar will be less but full recovery without scar is not possible.

Operations done to remove the refractive error (power) of the eyes are known as refractive surgery. There are certain basic criteria that most patients need to fulfill before they can safely undergo refractive surgery. To enumerate, they are: (1) stability of refraction: the power of the eyes should have become stable for a period of 1.5 years minimum without any change. (2) curvature of the cornea should be tested by a technique which is known as topography. (3) thickness of the cornea should be measured by a test known as pachymetry. The minimum thickness required is 550 microns. (4) dilated retina evaluation: this is one of the most important tests that should be performed by a trained retina specialist. This test helps in detection of any offensive lesion on the central or peripheral retina. In case of any retinal abnormality, these should be treated before undergoing the surgery for number reduction. (5) there should be no pre-existent corneal abnormality. (example: corneal scar, opacity, defect, etc.) another important suggestion is that whenever you go for the assessment (the above mentioned tests), you should discontinue the use of contact lenses at least 4 weeks prior to the assessment. The reason for this being that use of contact lens temporarily alters the contour of the cornea. It takes around 3-4 weeks for the restoration of the original corneal contour after removal of the contact lens. Another important point is that you, as a patient, should be compliant to put post operative medication in your eyes for at least 2 months. There is bound to be some discomfort, watering, foreign body sensation, pain after the surgery in most cases-you should be ready to tolerate that. A leave from work for 7-10 days after the surgery should be generally sufficient. Last but not the least, you should set realistic expectations from this surgery. Though extremely rare, there is a remote possibility that the surgery may need to be repeated. Also, the need for subsequent treatment for the eye may be required. Thus, you should be compliant enough to trust and follow your eye specialist. Hope my suggestions help you, take care, regards.

I fell comfortable without glasses too and hence after few year my number increased. I want to know if it can be cured. I used diamond eye drops for sight. It had some good results. I want to know if my eyesight can be improved with any method and how to use medicine?

Myopic power usually increase upto age of 21 years because it is related with body growth & in male body growth is completed by 21 years of age & maximum body growth takes place between 13 to 21 years that is why maximum myopic power increases between these periods, to keep eye healthy one should take lot of green vegetables. There is no direct medicine to reduce myopic power, with regards.

Excessive times spend on laptop/tv/ mobile could lead to computer vision syndrome. It is the result of long prolonged hours of focusing the eyes on a computer screen or any other display device. The symptoms include? headache and neck pain? blurred vision? eye strain? dry eyes along with redness the situation can further be aggravated by poor lighting environment. The way to reduce the symptom is to? work under adequate lighting? blink a lot? cold compresses? use lubricating eye drops.

Hello. Glaucoma is a condition usually caused by raised intra-ocular pressure that affects the field of vision in the eye. I am sure that appropriate medications must have been prescribed to keep the eye pressure under control. Coming to your question, I would like to suggest a few precautions and a few exercises to avoid raising the intra-ocular pressure. Avoid exercises that raise your eye pressure: (1) certain breathing exercises (eg. Pranaayam, valsalva technique-the art of exhaling with closed mouth as well as pinched nose) tend to increase the intra-ocular pressure. This should be avoided strictly by patients who have glaucoma. (2) lifting heavy weight should be avoided. This is because carrying heavy objects (more than 5 to 6 kilograms) would tend to increase the intra-ocular pressure. (3) exercises involving vigorous jumping should be avoided. (4) at times, high altitude (mountain travel) may cause increased intra-ocular pressure. This should preferably be avoided. To conclude, glaucoma can be controlled but to get complete cure is honestly not possible. Likewise, taking adequate care and regular follow-up with your eye specialist should be sufficient to keep it under control. It is sometimes a hereditary problem. Thus, children of parents suffering from glaucoma should get their eyes checked regularly as well. Similarly, grand children should also get their eyes screened to rule out glaucoma or its effects. Hope my suggestions help you, take care, regards.

Eye strain, or asthenopia, is when the eyes get tired from excessive or intense use. It can be annoying, but it tends to disappear with rest. Although it’s not often a serious condition, eye strain could be a symptom of an underlying problem. Eye strain is known to cause fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and headaches Homoeopathic medicine EUPHRASIA 30 ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 2 drops direct on tongue every 2-3 hrly EUPHRASIA EYEDROPS ( SBL ) pour into eyes 1-2 drops 3 times daily
