Hello, I am an software engineer and I had to work on computer throughout day. My eyes soon get strained after half or one hour of work. Can this be because our office is in underground and it is lighted by dim LED lights?

Constant work on pc or laptop can cause this. You should take rest from work every 15-20 min for about 20 sec and look at some distant object about 20 feet away. This will help in relaxing your eyes. You can use some lubricant eye drops eg lubrex eye drops 1 drop every 2 hourly.

Computer Eye Strain is known as computer vision syndrome Follow the advice given below. 1. Take a break-Use 20-20 rule, Take a break for 20 second after working in computer for 20 minutes and look at some thing 20 feet away. 2.Blink Frequently to prevent dryness of eyes 3.Use of computer glass- it optimises your eye sight when you are looking at digital screen and helps to decrease glare 4. Keep your monitor bright- this decreases flicker 5. Use proper lighting like incandescent light 6. Check position of monitor- monitor should be placed 4-5 inches below eye level and 20-28 inches from eyes 7. Adjust, screen resolution 8.Minimise glare- clean monitor regularly to remove dust and place an anti glare screen 9.Try massage or eye cupping- Massaging the area around the eye will relax eye muscle. Rub your hands together to create friction and warmth, then gently cup your palm over the closed eye and rest them 10. Take multivitamin tablet containing vitamin A, C,E, B complex, Zinc and antioxidant (one capsule of Revital daily after Breakfast) 11. Go for yearly eye examination.

Use reckeweg cineraria eye drops, instill 2 drops, twice daily for a week and revert for follow up. While driving wear goggles this will protect your eyes from dust.

Do this: Apply Rose water in eyes and then put a piece of cotton over eyes and put a small ice cube over it for 2 mins. Repeat this for 3 times in a day for 3 days. You will feel relax after it.

Lasik is a simple laser procedure which changes the shape of the cornea so that the light rays fall on the retina properly. It is a painless procedure. It is a day care procedure does not require any injections, does not require admission, you can simply resume your duties in 2 days. Cost varies from centre to centre. Side effects are usually limited to dryness of eyes for few months. We can do lasik anytime after age of 18 years. You need to undergo proper prelasik checkup to decide whether lasik is safe for you or not

Regular eye checkup and wearing your glasses. Unfortunately there are no natural medications to remove spectacles permanently. You can either try contact lenses or plan for refractive lasik laser surgery.

Which type of Laser machine will be best suited for vision correction at 44 yrs of age for dist. Vision of +3+1.25 ?

MS - Ophthalmology
Ophthalmologist, Gurgaon
Dear deepak, more than knowing laser machine what you ought to know more is that at 44 yrs apart from distance vision you would be needing near vision glasses too. So LASIK for distance will only eliminate need for distance vision but need for near vision might remain.
