I have headache and red eyes for 4 days. Have taken crocin but could not got relief so please tell me what should I do?
Are you having any other problem eg discharge from eyes, swelling, pain in eyes, fever. Take over-the-counter painkiller if intolerable pain. Do hot wet fomentation of eyes for 5-10 min 3-4 times a day. Keep eyes clean. Don't touch your eyes. Hope this helps you. If required, consult.

Ptosis is the medical term for a drooping eyelid. It refers only to the upper eyelid sagging. Upper eyelid drooping can sometimes affect your vision if the drooping is severe. Ptosis is not a disease, but a symptom of another condition that must be treated like Diabetic Neuropathy,Stroke,Muscular Dystrophy,Myasthenia Gravis,Botulism,Brain Aneurysm,Brain Tumour,Intra cranial Haemorrhages,Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome,Turner Syndrome.So if we can understand the exact underlying cause of ptosis,only then it will be easy to treat it.Myself is a homoeopath and I will definitely guide you in your treatment but for that I want full case history of your problem.

Normally the number gets stabilise after 18yrs. If it has not stabilise after that, it can be progressive myopia or keratoconus. No major role of food or any exercise has been established in stabilising the number or improving vision. Kindly consult ophthalmologist to rule out keratoconus. If you want to remove spectacles, you can consider laser surgery.

Hi , Injections called 'fillers' can give you good remedy, but they may need to be repeated. Surgical ('plastic') options give long term, predictable results.

It is better to avoid such situation of performing second operation. Chances of post operative complication are more in second operation.

Hello this may be due to dryness you can 1. Blink a lot 2. Wash eyes with fresh water 3. Cold compresses 4. Use lubricating eye drop like flogel regarding flying particles: in eye we have 2 segments: anterior and posterior. In posterior segment we have a gel called vitreous this vitreous is made of collagen fibres. In some people, these collagen fibres gets meshed up and they start floating in vitreous gel when light enters the eye, these meshed collagen fibres cast a shadow on retina which is seen as floaters by patient. There is no treatment for this just avoid seeing them these are entirely normal consult ophthalmologist if these suddenly increase in number This is a provisional diagnosis. Consult your ophthalmologist for detailed examination.

Hi lybrate-user. Pcod is a condition due to hormone imbalance. Mainly due to excess male harmone androgen. You should check blood sugar. Blood pressure lipid profile and ultrasound abdomen to diagnose. Treatment may be stated by medicines but if the menstruation is not regular go for surgical treatment.

Redness can be commonly due to allergy or infection, you need to visit nearby eye surgeon to check that. Also get your glass power checked

Looks like you are experiencing a normal entoptic phenomenon. For safety sake get your retina evaluated. If that is fine then you dont have to worry.

My eye is dry. Which medicine I use for this dryness?

FICO, Specialist in Cataract,Cornea and refractive surgeries , MD - Ophthalmology
Ophthalmologist,
Different types of medications are used according to the severity of the dry eyes. If you have mild dry eyes use refresh tears (car boxy methyl cellulose 0.5%) 4 times a day. Add refresh liquigel if severity is moderate 4 times a day. Environmental modifications are important also like 1. Use of goggles 2. Avoid hot and dusty conditions 3. Dont sit directly under the fan.

capsaicin, a compound found in jalapeno and cayenne peppers, may increase your body's release of stress hormones such as adrenaline, which can speed up your metabolism and your ability to burn calories. What's more, eating hot peppers may reduce your appetite, tremblay says, helping to curb your cravings. So spice up your stir-fried veggies, eat low-calorie chili or salsa (try them on salads and baked potatoes), and watch the pounds come off faster.

Yellow colour/paleness of eyes is not a disease but an indication of underlying disease. Yellow eyes along with yellow urine strongly suggests jaundice which can be due to various reasons like obstructive jaundice or simple hepatitis etc, I strongly advice you to visit a physician and get few tests like live function tests, ultrasonography abdomen done and clinical correlation

Hello. There is no medication or food for improving eye sight or to get rid of glasses. Get your vision tested and wear glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser as your age is now 15 years so your number will not increase much 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. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik. After age of 18 years.
