Weak eye sight is not a disease and not caused due to deficiency of anything. It is just an error of refraction. When rays entering your eyes do not focus on the retina, we make them focus with the help of glasses or contact lenses. So just eat normal healthy diet and continue wearing your spectacles.

Most Common Eye Injuries That Happen and Prevention Tips

While it's assumed that numerous eye injuries are inflicted at work, just about the same number of them may happen while at home. Luckily, most eye wounds are preventable. Find ways to prevent eye injuries, as the eyes are very sensitive and delicate.
Here is a list of some of the most common eye injuries and tips on how to prevent them:

1. A lot of eye injuries happen from dust particles entering the eyes, causing itching and burning sensation. Protective glasses should be worn when doing any kind of activity in a dusty area with flying particles.

2. Pencils, scissors, forks, knives and all similar sharp objects can cause a serious eye injury. Day to day household items like bungee cords, wire coat hangers, rubber bands and fishhooks are capable of causing eye injuries. You must always remain aware and super conscious while using such objects.

3. While performing activities such as dusting, sweeping or lawn mowing, make sure to protect your
eyes well as dust is involved.

4. Children are very curious by nature. Thus, all hazardous stuff like fertilizers, acids should be kept away from their reach. These contain harmful chemicals, which may inflict fatal damage to the eyes.

5. Cooking powder and spices like chili powder can cause injury to the eye. Always wash your hands
after using these items, so that you don't harm the eyes if you by chance rub them with your hands.

6. Precautions should be taken while dealing with heat or boiling water or oil. They may spill and cause damage to the eyes.

7. Secure floor coverings and railings. On the off chance that a kid or elderly man lives in your home, use a safety gate at the top and base of stairs, and consider covering sharp furniture edges and corners with a padding material.

8. While travelling in a car, abrupt jerking or breaks may cause the head to bump and cause injury to the eye. Always put on your seat belt and do not allow children to sit in the front of a car.

9. Many modern toys, which are very attractive have got sharp edges because of their fancy design. Abstain children from playing with these kinds of toys.

10. Laser pointers, a common fun gadget for children is very harmful and causes permanent damage to the retina. Stay away from laser pointers.

11. Wear eye gear to protect your eyes during sports activities. Also wear goggles during swimming as chlorine in swimming pool water damages the eyes.

Eye injuries may happen out of nowhere. You must always remain alert to avoid eye injuries.

Hi Sir/Madam, Could you please tell me what is the reason for having thin cornea. I have short sight problem. Doctor ...
Hello lybrate-user. Sorry about your eye trouble. Thinning of the cornea is usually genetically determined. There are certain infections of the eyes that may cause thinning of the cornea as well. I guess you have never had any infection of the eye or any injury to the eyes. This means that your thin cornea is definitely genetically determined. Thinned corneas may be associated with raised eye pressure at times so it would be better to have your eye pressures assessed. Unfortunately, if the thickness of the cornea is not sufficient enough, a person cannot be eligible for lasik. It might be a better idea to consider other options such as using contact lens. If you do not wish to use contact lens, then surgical options might work for you (in case you have extreme high numbers) the surgical option includes clear lens exchange. This procedure involves replacing the clear lens in the eye with an artificial lens (just like in cataract surgery). You should seek the opinion of a cornea specialist. The reason being that thin corneas may also cause a condition known as keratoconus. This condition causes conical protrusion of the cornea leading to subsequent complications. Let me know if you require further assistance. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care.

Does it comes and go in front of your eyes or is it constantly in front of vision all the time? it likely seems to be floaters(according to your description as it is moving). Floaters can be due to vitreous degeneration or retinal pathology. It first to be examined to confirm the diagnosis and then managed accordingly.

: red eye has many causes. You have to see if it is associated with blurring of vision, pain, discharge and other complaints. But commonly its allergic or infective in origin ie allergic or infective conjunctivitis. Which has simple treatment protocol. But still its wise to see an ophthalmologist for a thorough slit lamp examination to rule out other differentials for red eye like uveitis. Allergy. Etc.

Get your eyes tested for vision. Wear glasses as prescribed by the eye specialist. Continuously reading small print without proper light should be avoided. Smart phone may cause strain. Don't expose your eyes to extreme sunny weather of cold windy weather. Don't be closer to people with eye infections as you may contact the infection. Homoeopathy has effective treatment for your problem without adverse effects. Take belldonna 200 ---once daily in the morning for 5 days.

Yes your eye number changes as your body grows but usually stabilizes by the age of 20-22. So do not worry no specific diet required. Just avoid junk food.

Most probably, you are beginning to develop dry eyes. Lubricant drops give relief, but the problem returns when drops are discontinued. Ideally, you should get a complete eye evaluation by an ophthalmologist.

Pain is unusual in eyes. You need to make sure that vision is not affected. You need to visit eye surgeon to rule out any vision threatening problem.

Do not panic. Just get your eyes examined by an eye doctor to rule out presence of night blindness. Difficulty in seeing at night or in dim light is the symptom of night blindness. But even if you have problem seeing at night does not actually mean color blindness.
