Dear partho...Lutivit is basically multivitamin and multimineral tablet. Usually out diet lacks in essential nutrients so these tablets helps in overcoming deficiencies of our diet. There is no direct role of lutivit on ur eyes but yes indirectly it helps in overall performance of body. I hope this answers ur question

You have something called as computer vision syndrome. So take frequent breaks while you are working every 20-25 mins take break to look away from screen blink more frequently' level of screen should be below the level of eyes ac should not blow directly on your face. Also get your eyes checked for any spectacle power.

My age is 22. My eye sight is not very good what to do for better eye sight. I can not see clearly without spectacle.

All About Blepharoplasty

MBBS, MS Surgery
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon
Ask Free Question
The surgical procedure to correct the appearance of eyelids is called blepharoplasty. The correction is done by removing extra skin, fat and muscle that make the eyelids droop.
Uses-
Eyelids start drooping when the muscles supporting your eyelids weaken as you grow older. Excess fat accumulates below and above your eyelids as a result, which leads to eye bags and droopy eyelids.
Besides making you look older than your age, droopy eyelids can also affect your vision. Blepharoplasty can improve your vision and give your eyes a polished look at the same time. Some other benefits include:
Excess deposits of fat that make eyelids look puffy are removed with the help of blepharoplasty.
Eye bags are reduced.
Drooping eyelids which end up revealing the sclera (the white part in your eyeballs) are fixed.
Fine wrinkles and excess skin around lower eyelids are corrected.
Blepharoplasty is usually combined with procedures such as skin resurfacing, face-lift or brow-lift.
Risks-
Blepharoplasty, like every other surgical procedure, has certain risks, which include
Bleeding and infection
Irritated, dry eyes
Trouble closing eyes and other associated problems
Prominent scarring
Eye muscle injury
Skin discoloration
Follow-up surgery is needed
Short-term blurry vision, or in unusual cases, loss of vision
General risks associated with surgery such as blood clots, anaesthetic reactions, cardiac and other coronary problems.
Preparation-
Before the surgery can be scheduled, a surgeon and ophthalmologist will be consulted to record your medical history and discuss your expectations about the surgery. Then, before the procedure can begin, the following steps will be followed:
First, you will be examined physically; your doctor will test your tear ducts and take measurements of your eyelids.
Second, your eyes will be examined and your vision will be tested.
Lastly, your doctor will take photographs of your eyes which will facilitate and guide him/her through the course of the surgery.
Results-
The effects of blepharoplasty are long-lasting and the corrections are permanent. Durable sun protection of the eyes helps in maintaining the corrections made.
Although, you can get excellent results from one surgery, sometimes you may need multiple procedures to achieve the desired look.

Here are seven super quick and easy ways to give your eyes a break during your all those smartphone marathon sessions. 1. Blink, blink and blink again. Blinking often (and for more than a second) keeps your eyes moist and reduces dryness and irritation. We tend blink about a third less than we normally would when we stare at our smartphone screens, which starves our poor peepers of protective tears. Keep your eyes wet by blinking about 10 times every 20 minutes or so and you should be good to go. 2. Minimize glare. Unless you have a smartphone equipped with anti-glare Corning Gorilla Glass or use a matte screen protector film, you’re probably coping with a fair amount of annoying reflective glare. 3. Take breaks. Follow 20-20-20 rule. The concept is to take a break from looking at your screen every 20 minutes for 20 seconds while looking at something 20 feet away. Doing so relaxes your eye muscles 4. Adjust your brightness. Having your screen too bright or too dark stresses your eyes out and can cause problems maintaining focus. To eliminate either issue in about a matter of seconds, simply go into your smartphone settings and adjust your screen brightness so it’s about the same as the light level in the environment around you 5. Tweak your text size and contrast. Adjusting your smartphone text contrast and size also provides a little much-needed relief. 6. Keep a clean screen. Routinely wipe down your smartphone screen with a dry (not wet!) cleaning cloth to remove distracting dust, grime, smudges and fingerprints. 7. Hold your smartphone farther away. Try holding yours at least 16 to 18 inches away from your eyes to give your eyes a break.

If you suffered from this problem, most probably cataract formation in your eyes, or some retinal degeneration may be, I suggest visit to any ophthalmologist near by you, if cataract developing you may starts eye drops elaneer kuzambu 1-1 drops in eyes only morning (ayurvedic drop) it stops the further progression and some short of reversal also founds.

Hye. There are no health benefits of alcohol. What little bit of antioxidant you may get from wine does not justify it's intake. You can have many other foods that are healthy give you many more nutrients as well as antioxidants.

Any ways wearing contacts for more than 7 to 9 hours will harm your cornea am chances are high to lead to blindness. Contact lenses reduces oxygen supply to cornea and causes rubbing on the corneal surface which in turn lead to opacity and later ulcer.

It's your choice whether you like spectacles or contact lenses. Both are good. When using contact lenses take the precautions that the ophthalmologist suggests depending on the kind of lenses you use. When using the computer - do not sit for long hours because you may end up having back and neck problems added to your minor eye problem. Follow fitness rules while working on a computer (tips for which you can get on the internet.)

Get your refraction done and wear spectacles eat green veggies. Carrots. Strain less your eyes. Relax your eyes in between work. Blink regularily if working for long time on computer. Lower the brightness of your screen. Work under adequately illuminated conditions. If needed wear corrective spectacles. These r few things you can take care of. Otherwise as such no options available which wd increases your eyesight.
