Hello lybrate-user. There are multiple causes responsible for diminution/ blurring of vision. Let me enumerate them in brief for you: (1) refractive error. This is one of the commonest reasons responsible. Minus or plus number in one eye or both eyes may be responsible for weak/ blurred vision. The solution for this is glasses/ contact lens/ refractive surgery (if applicable). It should be checked by a trained optometrist/ ophthalmologist and proper glasses should be prescribed. (2) cornea related problem: injury, degeneration, infections or inflammation occurring on the cornea tend to causes loss of transparency and lead to weakening of vision. These should be assessed preferably by a cornea specialist and treated appropriately. (3) cataract in the lens of the eye: this usually occurs with increasing age but in some cases may occur at a younger age. There are multiple systemic factors responsible (eg. Diabetes, increased cholesterol levels, etc) injury to the eye may also cause cataract. This should be assessed and treated appropriately by a cataract specialist. (4) retina/ vitreous problems: these occur due to a variety of reasons such as high minus numbers, diabetes, trauma, etc. These issues are best assessed and treated by a retina specialist. There are good quality surgical options available for the same. (5) optic nerve related problems: these may occur due to raised eye pressure (glaucoma), or occur in association with certain conditions related to the brain and the blood vessels. These are best assessed by a retina/ glaucoma specialist (whichever applicable). (6) neurological problems: certain problems in the brain and the central nervous system tend to cause weakening/ blurring of vision. These are best assessed by an eye specialist in concordance with a neurologist and a neurosurgeon if required. Thus, based on the category you fall under, it would be necessary to take appropriate help and treatment. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care.

My age is 36 years old and not married. I am using minoxidil 5% for last 8 months. Earlier it showed significant effect and hair fall stopped and saw few hair growth, but for last 2 months, suddenly more hair fall and hair fall even from roots now. Not seeing any positive effect. So what I should do? Should I stop this minoxidil 5% permanently? Because I do not want to loss more hairs. My middle scalp is showing as bald. Please suggest. If any good solution apart from this, without any single medicines with full head of hair permanently. Please suggest.

Dear lybrate user it is the secondary action of the medicine as every action has an equal and opposite reaction our body reacts same to physiological doses of medicine but in homoeopathy we give dynamic doses of medicine which are similar to your symptoms thus removing this hair fall tendency naturally but one thing I advice you take classical treatment only where single doses of medicine will be given to you do not use any shampoo or perfumed oils use shika powder and coconut oil only also eat healthy diet more in proteins vegetables and whole fruits exercise daily.

You are suffering from squamous blepharitis in which white dandruff like material get deposited on lid margin ,in long run lids gets thickened & gradually eyelashes get lost  causing redness & intense itching in eyes ,it is directly related with dandruff in the scalpe. There in no cure for it ,but you may get relief if you follow as advised below.       Take a small amount of sodium bicarbonate  (mitta soda in Hindi) in a bowel (katora) fill it with  clean water (200 ml)& also add a piece of cotton ,boil it  ,let it be cool at bearable temperature ,clean lid margin with cotton in front of mirror, your eye lids will be cleaned because dandruff or white material is soluble in sodium bicarbonate, let allow lids to dry. When lids gets dried, you should apply optithrocin Eye ointment+ neosporin H Eye ointment 3- 4 times daily & rub it on lid margin clean index finger, you should clean daily at least for 3 months& apply ointment as told above. For dandruff in scalp you should use Nuforce Anti Dandruff lotion at least once or twice a week depending on severity.

Hi. Get your eyes tested from an Opthalmologist (Eye specialist). Night blindness is a condition that makes it difficult to see in low light. The human eye got a very sophisticated system which can function from very dark to very bright light. But in the case of night blindness, the eyes fails to adapt to darkness. Night blindness can be an early sign of vitamin A deficiency, often the result of a diet lacking in vegetables containing beta-carotene, which the body can make into vitamin A. A lack of zinc can reduce retinol dehydrogenase, an enzyme needed to help vitamin A work in the eye. Zinc helps night blindness in those who are zinc-deficient. Most people don’t get enough zinc in their diets. Vitamin A is found naturally in many foods: cod liver oil, liver, sweet potato, carrot, broccoli, butter, kale, spinach, pumpkin, Cheddar cheese, egg, apricot, papaya, mango, pea, milk, tomatoes, seaweed.

Yawning is when your body takes an incredibly deep breath in which your mouth opens wide to take in the desired air. There are a number of different reasons than can lead to yawning excessively. 1 sleepiness ------can be the main reason. Believe it or not, this is not a myth. The majority of excessive yawning is a result of a lack of sleep. Obviously, those that are not getting an adequate amount of sleep will need to increase their time for snoozing in order to minimize the yawning they experience throughout the day. Weshould sleep approximately eight hours of sleep each night. However, people vary and some require more sleep, while others can get by with a little less. Therefore, determining if a lack of sleep is your cause of frequently yawning will fall back on self-examination. Nevertheless, this method will only work if lack of sleep is the initial cause. 2. Sleep apnea.------ This condition should be diagnosed by a doctor and refers to a condition denoted by periods throughout the night in which the person stops breathing. Anyone correcting the amount of sleep they are achieving without yawning less should seek medical attention to ensure that sleep apnea is not the problem. If it is, this condition is generally treated with an automated administration of oxygen throughout the night. 3. Certain medications such as antidepressants may also increase your yawning as well 4.Other reasons for constantly yawning include everything from epilepsy to anxiety. In an anxious situation, yawning may signify a person attempting to catch his or her breath so that proper breathing is resumed. Along with these two conditions, brain tumors, heart attacks, multiple sclerosis, and several other medical conditions may be a cause to the increase in your yawning. Despite the severity of some of these situations, typically the yawning is accompanied by other, more serious symptoms. Therefore, it is essential that you amend the amount of sleep you are obtaining each night in an attempt to rectify this problem before jumping to conclusions. However, if these attempts appear to fail, it is recommended that you seek a medical examination in order to ensure that the problem is not a serious condition.

What should I do ...
Keratoconus is a slow, progressive eye disease in which the normally round, dome shaped cornea (the clear outer front portion of the eye) thins and begins to bulge into a cone-like shape. This cone shape is irregular, bending light as it enters the eye.Cornea Collagen Crosslinking appears to represent one of the most important advances in ophthalmology in the last decade. The laboratory and clinical studies indicate a safe, effective, and elegant treatment for keratoconus. and you can definitely do it and will hlep
