Hello. There is no medication or food for improving eye sight or to get rid of glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser as your age is now 21 years so your number will not increase now whether you wear glasses or not as number becomes stable at age of 18-20 yrs. Having said that I advise you to eat balanced diet including green vegetables and seasonal fruits for keeping eyes and body healthy. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

Dear lybrate user, red eyes 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.

What the reason of red eye. I have red eye but my eye not naturally red. Red line are present in. What do for normal.
Hello, Bloodshot 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 Eye infections or inflammation can cause redness as well as possible itching, discharge, pain, or vision problems. Other causes of eye redness include Colds or allergies, Acute glaucoma, Corneal scratches: Injuries caused by sand, dust, or overuse of contact lenses. Sometimes, a bright red spot, called a subconjunctival hemorrhage, will appear on the white of the eye. This often happens after straining or coughing, which causes a broken blood vessel on the surface of the eye. Most often, there is no pain and your vision is normal. It is almost never a serious problem. Because the blood leaks into the conjunctiva, which is clear, you cannot wipe or rinse the blood away. Like a bruise, the red spot will go away within a week or two. Management: - Try to rest your eyes if redness is due to fatigue or eye strain. No other treatment is needed. - Wash your hands, hold clean water in your hand, keep your eyes closer to the water and wash the eyes by blinking the eyelids frequently in the held water in hand. Repeat it for 3-4times again. - Avoid watching T.V., working on computer or mobile, reading. - In case there is itching, use a clean napkin or a tissue to wipe the tears and cleaning the eyelids gently. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe’s Belladonna 30 and Euphrasia 30 - both thrice daily for 4 days. Use Euphrasia Eye drops twice daily. Revert back thereafter.

I am sixty five. I have some puffiness below my eyes. 1. Is it due to some deficiency? 2. Can I get rid of it?

Usually due to BP changes. Get it checked. Or might be just insufficient sleep , diabetes, and age (skin laxity). Treatment is cosmetic surgery.

How to Decide the Type of Eye Lens (Spherical/Monofocal/Multifocal) in Cataract Surgery?

How to Decide the Type of Eye Lens (Spherical/Monofocal/Multifocal) in Cataract Surgery?

Cataract also called 'motiyabin' in hindi. Phacoemusification also called phaco is the most common procedure done for removal of cataract in the world now.

Common public is often misguided by marketing professionals/staff in hospitals to opt for expensive lenses without thinking whether patients actually needs them or not.

Here is a complete summary of type of lens implanted in cataract surgery and it's pros and cons.

Fixed-focus monofocal lenses-these lenses can help you see at a distance, but you'll need reading glasses to see up close.

Accommodating monofocal lenses (crysta lens)
-a newer option, accommodating monofocal lenses, can shift from near to far vision in response to movements of the ciliary muscles in your eye, similar to the natural lens in a younger eye. These lenses offer excellent distance and middle vision, but they aren't as reliable for near vision. Eye exercises can help you get used to them, but about half of people who receive them still end up needing reading glasses.

Toric lenses-these specialized monofocal lenses are designed for people with astigmatism. Toric lenses offer focused vision at a single distance and correct your astigmatism, so you might not need distance glasses after surgery.

Multifocal lenses-like the bifocal or progressive lenses used in glasses, multifocal lenses have different areas designed for distance, intermediate, and near vision. The brain and eye figure out which part of the lens to use. The main drawback of multifocal lenses is they can distort bright light, creating more glare and halos at night.

Aspheric lens-designed to improve contrast sensitivity and visual clarity under certain circumstances.

Monovision-this implant technique uses a monofocal lens with a different power in each eye so that you don't have to use glasses for most of your daily activities. Your dominant eye is generally set for distance, and the other eye is set for near. Many people successfully use monovision with contact lenses. Successful monovision requires cataract surgery to each eye.

Hello, its not inappropriate to say that technology is taking a toll on our health these days. Your problem is shared by many people in your age group especially those using screens (mobile n computers) for more than 6-7 hrs a day. The eye ache and discomfort is caused mainly due to dryness (due to high tear evaporation rate in screen users), refractive errors, muscle weakness and spasm. As in your case its good you are using antiglare glasses while working, please do continue it. Try and lessen the screen time if possible. Take balanced diet with more green vegetables and fruits. You can also start with a multivitamin supplement and cod liver oil capsules (if non vegetarian you can have 2 serves of fish per week). Go for some tear substitute eye drops and use it on regular basis. Take a break of 10 sec (close eyes or look farthest) every half hour while working on screens, in order to relive exhausted muscles. Take care.
