Boil water putting a cotton swab in it, after boiling let it cool some what take out cotton squeeze it. Touch it at your cheek to know it is not too hot. If tolerable then put it on effected eye for 2 minutes. Again put in water and repeat this 8 to 10 times twice a day. Do it every time when it happens, after some time you will be relieved. You may need some anti biotic drops and some anti inflamatory treatment also.

Glaucoma is a group of disorders which causes damage to optic nerve. What damage has occurred can't be recovered. The aim of treatment is to preserve as much of the optic nerve and vision as we can. Every eye surgery results in some inflammation and some pain- this varies according to eye risk factors and patients body reactions and his threshold for pain. Its just been one week postoperative. .Please be patient and have faith in the treating doctor. The post op course is very variable and takes a while for eye pressure to stabilise. A close follow up and compliance as recommended is very important-

Dry eye in LASIK is VERY rare. I have encountered just a handful of cases till now. If you are really scared about dry eye go for the most recent procedure called SMILE in which the cut is significantly smaller than LASIK and virtually no chances for dry eye

I have pain in my eyes.Please do help me.

FICO, Specialist in Cataract,Cornea and refractive surgeries , MD - Ophthalmology
Ophthalmologist,
I have pain in my eyes.Please do help me.
There are various causes of pain in eyes. If it is not associated with redness and it is a chronic problem, more aggravated during reading or doing near work, you may have some refractive error, go to a ophthalmologist and refract your eyes. A common problem when working on a screen or doing work for long periods is'dry eye. This is because concentrated work tends to reduce the blink reflex that replenishes the tears, and the dry atmosphere and lack of fresh air adds to the problem of insufficent tears. Allowing the cornea to become dry can cause irritation and blurred and variable vision. Use some lubricating eye drops like refresh tears, use them at least 4 times a day at least. You do need to look at every aspect of your work environment also. Use proper lighting, dont work in dim conditions should use table and chair. Your table should be of proper height so that you dont have to bend too much. Take rest after 30 mins for few mins, put the tear drops and work again. Do blink intermittently. If pain in eye is associated with redness, most common cause will be conjunctivitis which may be allergic or infectious. Will start treatment empirically on the line of infection start eye drops vigamox 6 times a day eye drops genteal four times a day however other causes of red eyes has to be rule out like allergic, glaucoma, foreign body, uveitis dry eyes, blepharitis. Kindly consult a ophthalmologist.

Whenever I do push ups my eyes become red and I feel some pain on my face. Can you suggest what can I do?
Hello, redness of eyes may be caused by several things like an allergy, infection, inflammation and dry eyes, etc. Here are the most likely combinations. 1. Redness + itching: might be caused by allergy 2. Redness + pain + watering + decreased vision: most likely being caused by an infection 3. Redness + pain: there must be an inflammation in the eye. 4. Redness foreign body sensation: this is most likely caused by dryness. Redness alone could be normal due to exposure to dust and temperature where eyes may be red in the morning. Another factor for redness is stress. I would suggest a few remedies for healthy eyes however they may not be effective for redness, they are? try blinking every few minutes? splash your eyes with fresh water? use cold compresses to cool your eyes? use lubricating drops eg flo-gel. This can remove the problem of dry eyes. It is best advised to see an ophthalmologist for examination and treatment.

Hello. After any surgery, it takes 2 to 3 weeks for the eyes to get back to their normal state. Thus, I would advice you to relax and not worry so much. Likewise, it would be a good idea to mention your complains to your operating surgeon as well. In that way, he/she would be able to solve any such doubts. Last but not the least, it is normal to have such symptoms immediately after cataract surgery so most probably, it should not be of any major concern. Hope my suggestions helped you.

Hello lybrate-user. The commonest cause for watering of the eyes is allergy. You should KNOW YOUR EYE ALLERGY first. •There are various EYE ALLERGIES TRIGGERS: A person can be allergic to: Pollen from grasses, weeds, and trees. These are the most common kinds of eye allergies and are called SEASONAL ALLERGIC CONJUNCTIVITIS. •Dust, pet dander, and other indoor allergens. These eye allergies last year-round and are called CHRONIC (PERENNIAL) CONJUNCTIVITIS. •Makeup, perfume, or other chemicals can trigger eye allergies called CONTACT CONJUNCTIVITIS. •An allergy to contact lenses, called GIANT PAPILLARY CONJUNCTIVITIS, makes eyes sensitive and red. Just like any other allergic reaction, they are caused by a MISFIRING OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM, the body's natural defense mechanism. It releases HISTAMINE, a chemical that causes swelling and inflammation. Symptoms to Watch For •Red, irritated eyes •Itchiness •Tearing or runny eyes •Swollen eyelids •Soreness, burning, or pain •Sensitivity to light Usually you’ll also have other allergy symptoms, such as a stuffy, runny nose and sneezing. DON'T TAKE YOUR EYES FOR GRANTED! Protect your sight with these six tips: 1. Eat for Good Vision 2. Quit Smoking 3. Wear Sunglasses / helmets to shield your eyes from dust, sunlight, pollution 4. Wash your eyes 3-4 times a day 5. Look Away From the Computer Screen at regular intervals 6. Avoid rubbing your eyes with fingers/ cloth/ shirt/ dupatta, etc. Everyone, even young children, should get their eyes examined regularly. It helps you protect your sight and see your best. It would also enable the doctor to diagnose any other problem in the eye. Take care-regards

Hello. I am going to gym from the past 1 year and my Eye power seems to be increasing every 3 months. I sit in front of my PC and work. I also work late night. Is that the reason? How can I protect my eye? I already wear glasses. Secondly, I wanted to get my eye laser surgery done. How effective is it? Can I undergo this? My age is 20. But my power keeps changing. My doctor said me that the eye power can change because I workout and become thin. Please suggest me about the laser treatment and also my increasing eye power and solution to siting in front pc for longer period. Any gadget or glasses I need to wear? (i already wear my power glass) Please reply Thank you.

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

Any remedy for protecting the eyes from using laptop, tablet and smartphone.

DOMS, MBBS
Ophthalmologist,
If you are using these gadgets in a balanced way, without feeling eye strain at the end of the day, then you may not need any protection. In general, taking frequent breaks by taking your eyes off the screen (eg, 1 or 2 min every 30 min), gently washing eyes with cool fresh water, using lubricating eye drops such as Zyaqua or Maxmoist 2 or 3 times daily could help a lot. If you are using glasses, make sure they have anti glare or anti reflection coating. If you as such dont have glasses, you can still use zero power anti glare spects. Try these measures and let us know if you feel better.
