Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment.

Hi, at 19 usually the power of the eyes stabilises. And if you don't want to wear glasses, a lasik refractive surgery is the ideal choice but for that a complete evaluation is required.

You need to identify the causative agent for allergy. Then need to avoid allergic agent. Can take tab cetrizine 10 mg two times a day. For eye start eye drop olopatadine 0.1 % two times (once in morning and once in evening) a day for 1 month.

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

Eye allergies are very common, and could be to any known allergen or dust/pollution, etc. They are chronic conditions which tend to recur. They require medications for relief of acute symptoms and may requirre some long term medications too. They also tend to be associated with atopic conditions eg asthma, eczema, etc.

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

My son having eye infection kind of Pronunciation. His having cough and cold too. Please suggest.

My son having eye infection kind of Pronunciation. His having cough and cold too. Please suggest.
It's probably acute bacterial conjunctivitis. Dont. Worry. Put topical eyedrops toba and flur four times a day and tearsubstitute like genteal four times a day in d affected eye. It would be okay in 3 -4 days. Take care of eye hygiene that you yourself/other family members don't share the clothes and hankie of the affected eye to the normal eye else the normal eye wd also contract the infection. You can wash your eyes twice to thrice but not very frequently as it washes away the tear film which naturally contains imp antibacterial and anti infective elements: 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 acute red eye.
