I am 44 yr old female having Glaucoma in both the eyes having pressure 22-24 despite regularly administering Timolol eye drop suggested by Eye specialist.What should I do.My perimetry test is normal and optic nerve is not affected but all the time heaviness in eyes and headeche sometimes create lot of problem

MBBS, DOMS
Ophthalmologist, Hyderabad
Hi, Glaucoma needs continuous long term followup. You may need one or more eye drops added to timolol, or be prescribed a replacement for it. Any eye drop prescribed, needs to be reviewed for the required efficacy (desired result achieved in you or not) and for any unwanted side effects.

There is no medication or food for improving eyesight or to get rid of glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser as your age is now 24 years so your number will not increase 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. As you are not comfortable with contact lens then go for lasik. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

How to remove spectacle without operation?

Phaco Development Program, Fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology, DNB Ophtalmology, MBBS
Ophthalmologist,
As of now you CANNOT remove spectacles without operation. There are currently NO exercises/medicines that can help you. Anyone telling you otherwise is cheating you. The only other alternative you have is contact lenses and a technique called orthokeratology where you have to wear contact lenses only when you sleep at night (but it has its own complications)

I have a tumor near my eye what should I do ?

DNB (ENT), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist,
Hi . If the tumour is benign and is not hindering visual function then it may be left alone. If the tumour is malignant then it will need surgical excision. See a general surgeon for an evaluation. It may need biopsy. If you can share a photo of the tumour with me then I will be able to suggest if it is benign or not by the physical appearance.

Dear lybrate-user, Eyes too need rest! Do decrease the use of electronic gadgets to minimum, get adequate sleep. If the problem still persists, consult an eye specialist to check for other causes like power-issue, Migraine etc.

My younger Son of 5 Years old have undergone squint surgery on right eye recently in Feb 2016. The squint was appeared in right eye (only) in Jan 2016 end week & that too instantly. Earlier to that, all was fine. To recover from the situation, our doctor suggested us to have squint muscle surgery which is common treatment.    Now after six month of surgery, the squint has appeared again on same eye. It is not constant squint on same eye & now sometimes both eyes looks fine, sometimes only right eye shows squint or sometimes his left eye shows squint. Our doctor says this is normal case & we will try to make it clear by using glasses & patching daily.    I am bit confused & don't know whether we are taking correct treatment or not? We are using glasses since yesterday as per Doctors advice & don't have complete result now.    Just wanted to have your expert opinion on below   1. Can squint reappear after surgery also?  2. Why the squint is not constant, sometime angle is more inward & sometimes in clean.  3. What tests I should do for my son to recover from this situation & do you feel that, we are taking correct treatment. 4. Do we need to visit Neurologist also? 5. Will my son can make confirmed outcome from this squint issue? 6. Is this is common or rare case?     Kindly support.

Squint can reappear after surgery. Eye alignment is variable. And depends upon eye muscle strenght, balance and coordination. During times of intense concentration n focus, sometimes the binocularity breaks and one eye will squint. Also, when sick or tired, the eye muscle also get fatigued readily, that's when the squint may also become evident. Sometimes following squint surgery, some vision therapy exercises are recommended to build on eye muscle strength and coordination. For the glasses power, doctor may need to under/ over or give full correction depending on a detailed squint examination n impact on squint surgery. I don't think you need to do any tests or visit a neurologist, but the judgement will remain with the treating doctor. I strongly suggest you discuss your apprehensions with the treating doctor. Squint and vision development in an ongoing process, with many factors contributing to outcome. There will never be any confirmation. Orthophoria or no squint is a rare phenomena. So have a reasonable expectation. All the best.

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
