I wear spectacles from past 10 years. I really wanna get rid off it. Any suggestions? What should I eat.
unfortunately there are no natural medications to remove spectacles permanently. you can either try contact lenses or plan for refractive lasik laser surgery Lasik is a simple laser procedure which changes the shape of the cornea so that the light rays fall on the retina properly. It is a painless procedure. It is a day care procedure does not require any injections, does not require admission, you can simply resume your duties in 2 days. Cost varies from centre to centre. Side effects are usually limited to dryness of eyes for few months. We can do lasik anytime after age of 18 years. You need to undergo proper prelasik checkup to decide whether lasik is safe for you or not

Weak eyesight has multiple factors associated with it. To enumerate a few: (1) refractive error- change of the power of glasses is the commonest cause of weak eyesight. In fact, if you have not used glasses previously, it might be possible that you might need to use them now. (2) age related changes in the lens of the eye-this is generally known as cataract. This is present in varying proportions in a majority of population above 55 years. This means that some degree of cataract is usually found in the age group over 55 years. (3) retina problem-different degenerations of the retina usually lead to weakening of the eyesight. The degeneration may be caused due to progressive age. It may also occur due to a high minus number of the eye (myopia). (4) cornea related problem- cornea is the anterior (front) part of the eye. Certain issues with the cornea may cause weakening of the eyesight. Thus, it would be a good idea to consult an eye specialist in person and get your eyes evaluated for the cause of weakening eyesight. Hope my suggestions help.

Reduce wearing of glasses at home. Do eye exercises. Avoid too much of near gadgets like video games mobile etc. Ayurveda therapies and medications could help improve your vision gradually.

Eye redness is most often due to swollen or dilated blood vessels. This makes the surface of the eye look red .There are many causes of a red eye or eyes like infection, allergy. foreign body in eyes. Some are medical emergencies and some are a cause for concern, but not an emergency. Others are nothing to worry about.Consult ur local eye specilist to see what is the cause

Hello. Sorry about your sister; s eye trouble. Redness of the eye is one of the most prevalent problems observed. 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. It occurs with symptoms of pricking, itching, irritation, watering, foreign body sensation and discomfort. 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. Thus, eye hygiene remains the principal modality of treatment along with eye drops as a supplement. (2) infectious conjunctivitis: this is usually associated with white-yellowish discharge. There may occur associated pain and sensation of itching, pricking, watering and discomfort. 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 because it would require immediate removal from the eye and appropriate therapy. (4) raised eye 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 covering layers 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. (6) increased blood pressure. This has known to cause redness which is also known as sub-conjunctival hemorrhage. The redness in this case tends to be deep dark and usually occurs only in one portion of the eye. In this regard, a complete ophthalmic evaluation and a systemic evaluation is warranted. 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. You could also use a lubricant eye drop along with an anti-histamine eye drop. (3-4 times daily) also, you might require a complete eye evaluation in order to rule out other causes. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care.

Hello, you are suffering with Hay fever.Hay fever is an allergic disorder which is caused due to exaggerated response of the immune system to allergic substances or allergens. It is also known as “Allergic rhinitis” and has symptoms similar to the common cold, they often last for more than two weeks and do not include fever. Signs and symptoms of allergic rhinitis are running nose, sneezing, nasal congestion, stuffy nose, and eye irritation. Homeopathy seeks to stimulate a self-healing response from the person’s own immune system. The main goal of the treatment is to strengthen the weak immune system. The most common Homoeopathic remedy For HAY Fever is Allium cepa 30 ch, 3 drops thrice daily when hay fever starts with thin, watery and excoriating discharge and sneezing. Also take Alpha WD , 20 drops with warm water once daily for the weak defence system.

Many causes of pain in eye. One need to ascertain that it is not vision threatening. You need to show it to nearby eye specialist to rule our any vision threatening problem, it could be mere glasses power or conjunctivitis. But better get it checked.

The choice is yours. To see clearly, you either need to wear glasses or contact lenses or undergo a very safe refractive surgery- commonly LASIK. Or you live with blurred vision. Healthy diet and exercise helps maintain healthy body and eyes. Will improve efficiency of eye muscles but not correct the entire refractive error. Else none of us would be wearing glasses.

Eye sight can be corrected either by lasik or crt (corneal refractive therapy) but both have it's own limitations and disadvantages, my advice to you is that you stick to your spectacles or contact lenses.

Visual gain depends on where, how n how much of the retina has been damaged. If u have had some inflammation our 8n fiction which has healed and left some scarring in retina .it usually will not progress. Some retinal degeneration are stationary n some progressive to blindness.
