Itching and redness is commonly due to allergy. Do cold fomentation over the eyes, dip a clean handkerchief in cold water and keep it over closed eyes for 2 minutes.. if severe , you need to start medicines after showing to eye surgeon

My sister is detected with myasthenia gravis. She is having problem of double vision and put on steroids. Currently she is having severe pain in her left eye (same eye which is having problem of double vision). She was suggested for eye muscle exercise by one of the eye specialist but other eye specialist refused to assist in muscle exercise by machines because of myasthenia gravis. We don't know what to do. Can any of you please help in this case. Thanks.

First and foremost double vision is a binocular phenomenon in this case. So you cannot say double vision is in one eye only. Myesthenia gravis is a disease affecting all voluntary muscles in the body. So adequate treatment for the disease is a must. Muscle exercises will not help in her case. Consult the physician who is treating her for myesthenia and get the dose of her medication adjusted.

In most of the cases ,sunken eyes are usually hereditary, but still have plenty of water &balanced diet. For I .T.professional ,CVS (computer vision syndrome) is common problem, to avoid CVS put some lubricating eye drops 4 - 5 times a day.

I am 40 yes old and working on computers many hours in a day. Past few months I am feeling that I have some problem in my vision. Every single image seems me double or some time foggy. I go thru eye checkup also but doctor said I do not have any prob in my eyes nor I required a specs. But I am suffering from eyes convergence problem. He suggested some exercise also which I am doing but not much gain visible to me. Please advise any medication or eye drops will help here?

Seeing that you are 40 years old you may need some form of correction. Even if an eye specialist has checked you I would advise you try using +1.00 glasses while using computers. It may help your problem. Convergence insufficiency cannot be corrected with medications. Exercises are the only go. But be aware that the effect takes weeks to months to be appreciable.

Hello. As your case is very chronic, there are very remote chances of improvement. But still would suggest you to take homoeopathic medicines which tell you as there are no side effects of these medicines! At least you can try. Take Arnica 1M and Causticum 1M - both once daily for 1 month.

It could be the cause as computer usage can lead to drying of eyes. Use a lubricant eye drop and also blink frequently while working on pc.

These could be signs of muscle tension headaches or stress headache. What you need is relaxation. Try some muscle relaxation exercises like yoga, meditation etc. If you find that difficult and have sleep problems too then do not hesitate to consult a psychiatrist, online if you prefer.

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

Hi. I have a few suggestions for you regarding the usage of computers. Follow the rule of" 20" this means that every 20 minutes, take a gap of 20 seconds, blink your eyes actively 20 times and focus at an object which is minimum 20 feet away. This will help in relieving your eyes from the continuous strain that is caused due to staring. Staring at the computer continuously causes us to subconsciously blink less than normal. This causes the tear film on the surface of the eye to dry up. The result of this is pain, discomfort, etc. Another suggestions regarding the usage of computers is to maintain a proper posture. The computer must be positioned at the same height as your eye level. The neck should not be inadvertently flexed or extended. Maintenance of proper posture would help in further relieving the symptoms of eye discomfort and pain. For further queries, it would be a better idea to do a video consultation or audio consultation via lybrate. Hope my suggestions help you. Take care. Cheers.

While using computer for long time every person fail to blink the eyes. So only way to overcome is Use Dim light in laptop or black background in screen. Try to blink for one minute for every 15 minutes if you are so busy. else try to create the habit of blinking eyes very often. Have More Food which are rich in VIT A and D.

After giving hot compressed treatment still my eye having that small bump. Which is knwn as chalazion.
Chalazion goes off with persistent hot fomentation if its small. If you still have bump after 1 month of regular hot compresses than you may consider surgical excision.

Dear Lybrate user:- you are suffering from Strabismus. Strabismus can be corrected by either refractive error correction or orthoptic exercise. If above treatments r not responding then surgical correction of Strabismus is attempted in two steps. Make urgent appointment privately with me for further clarification of your eyes problems.

My son infected by aids consequently his ratina affected and he lost his vision in right eye and left eye vision is now very poor. Alopathy treatment is running. As per doctor no further hope for improvement. But i m informed by some friends that in homeopathy can treat it. So i need guidance on this problem.

Allopathic doctors are not trained in homeopathy. As far as I know once cells in the retina are destroyed the body cannot regenerate them. So I doubt if any form of medicine at present can help him. You can try to get him low vision rehabilitation with some devices made for people with low vision.

Hello. Good question! coming to the point, walking on grass may benefit the body on the whole but there is no proven benefit for the eyesight, per say! I would not discourage you from walking on grass; simultaneously, I wold not give you false hope regarding the benefits of walking on grass. Weak eyesight has multiple factors associated with it. To enumerate a few: (1) refractive error- change of the power of glasses is the commonest cause of weak eyesight. In fact, if you have not used glasses previously, it might be possible that you might need to use them now. (2) age related changes in the lens of the eye-this is generally known as cataract. This is present in varying proportions in a majority of population above 55 years. This means that some degree of cataract is usually found in the age group over 55 years. (3) retina problem-different degenerations of the retina usually lead to weakening of the eyesight. The degeneration may be caused due to progressive age. It may also occur due to a high minus number of the eye (myopia). (4) cornea related problem- cornea is the anterior (front) part of the eye. Certain issues with the cornea may cause weakening of the eyesight. Thus, it would be a good idea to consult an eye specialist in person and get your eyes evaluated for the cause of weakening eyesight. Hope my suggestions help.

I. Have always dirt on my eye lashes even after bathing what should I do. To remove it?

I. Have always dirt on my eye lashes even after bathing what should I do. To remove it?
1. Don't rub or scratch over the affected area vigorously as that would not only worsen the eye condition but also cause the eyelashes to fall out.-- 2. Do pay attention to eyelid hygiene. It would be a good idea to clean the eyelids with a baby shampoo. Applying warm compresses will help in unclogging the oil glands. Take a clean cloth and dip it in warm water. Close your eyes and wipe the lid margins and eyelashes with this cloth. This will help in removing the secretions and debris from the eyelashes and eyelids. 3. Since scalp dandruff could also cause itchy eyebrows and eyelashes, it would be best to seek medical help for treating seborrheic dermatitis. As far as the eye allergy treatment is concerned, use of homoeopathic anti-inflammatory drops (euphrasia eye drops (sbl)) might prove beneficial.--- 4. If the use of any cosmetic product is causing your eyelashes to itch, then discontinue using it immediately. Women suffering with this problem must use non allergic homoeopathic cosmetic products only. Buy eyeliners or makeup products that wash off easily. You must always remove eye makeup at night and clean the makeup brushes so that bacteria are not trapped in them. 5. If you have been diagnosed with dry eyes, then the treatment would involve instilling eye drops or artificial tears (homoeopathic cinelube eyedrops (hapdco)). If you are suffering from severe dryness, your eyes might become photosensitive, so make sure that you wear sunglasses when you step outdoors. This will prevent your eyes from getting dry due to exposure to sun or wind.-- 6. Blink and take breaks when you are working on a computer. Cold compresses will also have a soothing effect on dry and red itchy eyes.- since our eyes are very delicate, one must try not to make any delays in seeking medical help. Itchy eyelids or eyelashes could be a symptom of an eye infection, so do consult an eye specialist if your eyelash follicles itch every now and then.
