Hello 1. If ideally speaking you should wear glasses. That will help you to see better 2. Practically. If you don't have any visual complaint or no headache you can avoid them I would recommend you to wear one.

I work for an IT firm, hence most of the time I'm in front of computer screen. I sleep for at least 7 hrs. But if I don't drink tea in morning I get headaches by afternoon. Can I consider tea as a trigger for headache or is it working with computer cause of headaches?

Every one hour of computer time should follow by 5 min break. Constant stooping before computer can cause many problems. If you can do some backward bending exercise during those 5 minutes it will be still better.

Dear lybrate user, 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.

If your eye has become white or become small, then you should try to get an artificial cosmetic shell custom made with the perfect fitting and matching with the other eye.

Hello, Include the following for getting better vision: Vitamins A, C, E, and minerals like copper and zinc are essential to eyesight. Get the antioxidants from dark leafy greens, egg yolks, yellow peppers, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Include garlic and onions. Blueberries, grapes as they have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help improve your vision. DHA is a fatty acid found in coldwater fish like salmon, sardines and mackerel. Exercises for eyes: Warm your eyes. Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Repeat this three times. Roll your eyes. Start by looking up and then slowly circle 10 times clockwise and 10 times counterclockwise. Focus. Hold a pen at arm's length, focus your eyes on it, and slowly bring the pen closer until it's about 6 inches away from your nose. Then slowly move it back, keeping your eyes focused on the pen, 10 times in all. Massage your temples. Using your thumb knuckles, massage your temples in small circles, 20 times in one direction and 20 in the other. Repeat the same actions above the mid-point of the eyebrows at the forehead, then below the eyes on both sides of the bridge of the nose. Take a mini-nap. Put your head back, close your eyes, and relax for 3 minutes. Insufficient sleep may weaken your vision, so shoot for 8 hours of sound sleep a night. Rest your eyes 10 minutes for every 50 minutes spent reading or in front of the computer. If your eyes feel overly tired, lie down and place cooling cucumber slices over your eyelids. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine which will help you in preventing first and reducing the power of your eyes. Take Physostigma 6/ thrice daily for 1 month. Thereafter, revert back for further guidance.

Hello lybrate-user, aapki chot se agar cornea white ho gayi hai to wo replace ho sakti hai operation se. But agar eyes andar se damage ho gayi hain to thik hona mushkil hai. Behtar hoga, aap kisi bade eye institute mein dikha le. Agar extensive damage nai hoga to chasma bhi diya ja sakta hai. Take care.

Her right eye shows red spots over white area in right side suddenly. Wat is the reason and treatment for that.

Her right eye shows red spots over white area in right side suddenly. Wat is the reason and treatment for that.
Looks like she has a sub conjunctival hemmorage that is. A small vessel has ruptured and some blood has accumulated there which is showing of as a small red spot. Of sudden nature. But you have not mentioned the age of patient .It is very important as causes of this rupture of vessel or accumulation of blood differ in different age groups. For example in elderly it could be one of the signs of uncontrolled sudden rise in blood pressure, where in younger patients it could be due to simple reason like sever cough or it be trauma or it cold be a sign of bleeding disorder .so history of any other body problems is of prime importance depending on the age of patient. Consult your ophthalmologist or neuro ophthalmologist for guidance.

At the time of sleeping also my eyes are open only, usually whenever I am in deep sleep eyes getting open.
one of the initial ways to treat nocturnal lagophthalmos is by simply wearing a mask while snoozing. So, we thought we’d try just that! We recently tried a pair of specialized goggles that provided coverage, comfort and a hot compress option by TranquilEyes. The Eye Hydrating Therapy Goggles not only helped seal our eyes and protect them from drafts and drying out during the night, they also blocked all light for a comfortable, undisturbed slumber. (An added bonus? The flexible, hypoallergenic goggles come with beads that can be conveniently heated in the microwave to stimulate tear production. The beads can also be placed in the freezer to reduce eye puffiness and relieve itch.) - See more at: http://allaboutdryeye.com/2013/04/03/sleeping-with-your-eyes-open/#sthash.rtGeFPvq.dpuf

I don't exactly remember when I get caught by this problem. I'm feeling like I'm losing my memory very soon and can't memorize a instance or event or name or number immediately I see. I feel nervous and lack of confidence all the time due to my bodily reflexes. It shivers while I stand in front of a crowd or in front of my manager and when I take a glass full of water. I always live with anxiety and with trembling hands and head. My memory fades while I'm getting into something. I can't sustain myself in cold whether as well as in little hot I sweat like a pig. My eyesight is getting weaker year by year. I have gastric disorders like indigestion and gastritis, sexual disorder like quick ejaculation. I feel like I'm always disturbed. Please help me.

You are suffering from anxiety disorder. Because of this one. You suffered very much. Better to consult psychiatrist for medical help. Along with medicine you need psychological counselling. Sometimes internal frustration and excessive stress may cause to develop this type of symptoms. It is better to control yourself. Do not imagine negative aspects. Do not underestimate yourself. Feel always comfortable manner. When we are under excessive stress we have a feeling of memory loss. We may develop fear also. I think you alone thinking excessively these aspects. Better to share when you feel bad. Breathing exercises will help to you very much. Practice yoga and meditation. Feel always relaxed. Your negative thinking is your enemy. Better to control it. Be feel always in a relaxed manner. I am very good capable person. I can solve any type of problems think like that do not depress small things. If you think negative aspects it may lead to further aspects. Feel always confident. It is better to come from yourself without any one help. If not possible your self it is better to take the help of professions. Be sociable and be friendly always. It is good for your health. Ok best of luck.

My right eye is twitching continuously since last 1 week! Is there any immediate cure for ths?
Eyelid twitching is due to abnormal functioning of basal ganglia, a part of brain responsible for controlling the brain. Other eye conditions may cause twitching which includes blepharitis, dry eye and conjunctivitis. For dry eye you can try refresh liquigel 5 to 6 times regularly for few days and if you don't get relief, you should consult a neurologist.

Bloodshot Eyes - Complications It May Involve!

MS - Ophthalmology
Ophthalmologist, Jabalpur
Bloodshot Eyes - Complications It May Involve!

Bloodshot eyes indicate the reddening of the eye vessels. They can cause irritation and make the eye swollen. The condition may arise due to allergies, eye infections, allergies, fatigue and other illness of the eye. It does not signify a disease but indicates an eye condition which might have caused the eye to redden. Bloodshot eyes can be encountered in one or both the eyes.

Causes of Bloodshot Eyes:

One of the frequent causes of bloodshot eyes is irritants such as dry air, pollen, pet dander, dust and UV rays of the sun. Shortage of sleep also tends to make the eyes red. Inflammations of the eye can also make them red giving a bloodshot appearance. It can even happen with people who wear contact lens for more than 16 hours without soaking it in the disinfectant. At times excessive dryness can make the eyes red. Some other reasons for the eye to become red include conjunctivitis, blepharitis, glaucoma and corneal ulcer. Another concerning reason of bloodshot eyes is a subconjunctival haemorrhage. While the latter is not dangerous in nature, it can cause significant trouble if proper care is not taken on time.

Symptoms of Red Eyes:

Some of the common signs of bloodshot eyes include watery eyes, foreign sensation, burning feeling, dermatitis, falling of eye lashes, light sensitivity, swollen eyelid, itching of the eye and feeling of irritation of the eye.

The Complications Involved:

In most of the cases, bloodshot eyes do not imply serious complications. In case it happens from conjunctivitis, a person may not be able to go to work, wear cosmetics and come in public places since it is a communicable disease. If bloodshot eyes arise from a serious condition such as glaucoma and trauma, some of the possible complications may involve the following:

  1. Eye scarring

  2. Vision loss due to complete blindness

  3. Spreading of the existing condition to other persons

  4. Eye loss in severe cases

Preventive Measures:

Bloodshot eyes might arise from an array of reasons. While it cannot be totally dodged, some general preventive measures can ensure that such a condition does not arise:

  1. Keeping hands clean by thoroughly washing them with liquid soap

  2. Not sharing personal belongings such as washcloths, linen, and cosmetics

  3. Get immediate medical attention in case of any eye injuries

  4. Stay away from an environment that is full of allergens

  5. Staying away from people who are suffering from infectious eye diseases such as conjunctivitis

  6. Taking a shower immediately after getting in touch with an infected person suffering from conjunctivitis

  7. Wearing eye glasses in a dusty environment
