I have a week eyesight for which I wear glasses. My prescription number is -1.5 for both eyes. Is it possible to improve my eyesight through Yoga and Pranayama?

There is no medication or food for improving eyesight or to get rid of glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser as your age is now 21 years so your number will not increase now whether you wear glasses or not as number becomes stable at age of 18-20 yrs. Having said that I advise you to eat balanced diet including green vegetables and seasonal fruits for keeping eyes and body healthy. As you are not comfortable with contact lens then go for lasik. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

Hello lybrate-user. Sorry about your eye trouble. There are certain cases wherein even after refractive surgery (lasik), it might be required to wear glasses. This could occur due to a variety of reasons. For you, the best solution would be to visit the center where you underwent lasik and get yourself evaluated regarding the same. It might be possible that the doctor might be able to help you. Eventually, you may not have to wear glasses. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. Take care.

In continuation of my preceding question I will like to bring in your knowledge the brief history regarding the case. It was at the age of 15/16 yrs when I for the first time experienced weakness in my eye sight (more in left eye which was termed as lazy eye) and doctor advised me to wear +1.5 sph+1 cyl no. on both my eyes, the no. progressively but slowly increased over years to +2.5sph+1.5cyl , however at the time of Lasik Surgery in the yr 2000 I was having even more no. with dilated eyes .

You should understand that patients with plus number have different numbers when tested without eye drops and after dilatation of eyes. This is known as actual and manifest refraction (number). The manifest number increases gradually as we advance in age, hence glasses need to be changed .

Hi, I suffer from myopia and my both eye power is -9. My age is 46 and I am healthy. Doctor has suggested me to go for lasik surgery which can help me to get back my 20/20 vision which is not good right now. I am a bit skeptical to go for the surgery of eyes which are the most delicate part of the body. Should you suggest me whether it is risky to go for the surgery? Is it painful or not? Are there any side effects later? Please advice.

Considering your age I will not suggest you lasik. Even if your distance sight is corrected you would require glasses for close. There are many other complications associated with lasik. If you ever develop cataract, your myopia would be corrected. So continue with your glasses.

Hi. For avoiding dryness of eyes, avoid excessive use of tablets, laptops, smart phones (while using any of them keep blinking the eyes frequently and take small frequent brakes after every 45min to 1 hr.), keep yourself well hydrated, take more of vitamin A rich food and vegetables like Green leafy vegetables, yellow & orange vegetables, carrots, sweet potatoes, red pepper, whole milk, eggs, liver, fish oils, mangoes, tomato, fruits, some vegetable oils. Medication: Take homoeopathic eye drops - Euphrasia/ twice a day daily.

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.

Redness of the eyes has multiple causes associated with it. To enumerate a few common causes: (1) allergy of the eye. It is usually caused by improper eye hygiene. There is a tendency to rub the eyes with fingers, handkerchief, cloth, etc. This is not a good habit because it tends to transmit lots of virus, bacteria and dust into the eye. Allergy usually presents with symptoms of watering (clear water), redness and itching of the eye. (2) infectious conjunctivitis: this is usually associated with white-yellowish discharge. If so, it would be a good idea to go and show to an eye specialist in person. (3) foreign body lodged in the eye. This is more commonly associated with people who drive 2 wheeler vehicles without protection. It occurs more commonly in one eye. Foreign bodies that commonly get lodged are eyelashes, insect wings, small insects, dust particles, iron particles (more common with people working in the iron industry) the solution for a foreign body lodged in the eye would be better provided by an eye specialist at the clinic. (4) raised intraocular pressure: this is a condition known as glaucoma. It is not so common as the previous mentioned conditions. There is usually associated pain in the eyes. It is commonly bilateral (occurs in both eyes). There is usually a positive family history of glaucoma associated in a majority of the cases. (5) inflammation of the coats of the eyeball. This is known as" uveitis" it is also a relatively less common condition. There is associated pain. It would require a thorough eye checkup including the retina-thus a good idea would be to visit the eye specialist in person. From the symptoms described by you, it seems more likely to be a case of allergy. Maintaining the precautions and hygiene that I mentioned should probably work well for you.
