Presbyopia - How Farsightedness Affects Your Life?

Presbyopia - How Farsightedness Affects Your Life?

As we age we get wiser for our experiences and knowledge, but it is also an accepted fact that our body and organ system get much weaker and there may be little that we can do about it. As we hit the middle ages, we start to experience problems such as wrinkles or greying of hair and general fatigue and tiredness after a short amount of activity. However, the real trouble starts when major system dysfunctions, such as the eyes and the vision.

Simple things like reading a book or a newspaper may become major tasks and it may be time to realise that we may be suffering from presbyopia. Presbyopia is commonly known as farsightedness and this is a problem in which patients find it difficult to see objects clearly when they are too close to the eyes.

How it affects the eyes:
It is a common knowledge that the vision system works with the help of natural lenses and its focal point. When the focal point of vision falls on the lenses, you may be able to experience perfect vision, but when it starts to move slightly off the point you may experience problems in viewing regular things such as printed or written words or even the things on your phone or computer.

Experiencing blurred vision when you try to view closer objects occurs because the elasticity of the lens of the eyes changes and the focal length of the lens changes with it. However, there are a lot of treatment alternatives for the problem and people do not have to start feeling old just because they experience difficulty in vision.

Treatments:
The more conventional treatments for presbyopia include the use of glasses with a power of lens that help in correcting the vision and reading may become a favoured activity again. For those who find the use of glasses to be a hindrance in regular life may also opt for contact lens, which may be a more comfortable alternative for those who may not want to make their problem obvious to the world. In a lot of cases, the people who suffer from the problem of far-sightedness may also choose to undergo surgery for the problem so that it can be corrected completely and no other measures may have to be taken.

Health issues may be a regular occurrence as you advance in age and you may have to find alternatives and treatments that help ease out the situation, but it is most imperative to make sure that you take the best advice from a qualified and certified doctor so that you problem may be diagnosed correctly and you may be able to get treatment suggestions that may cater to your specific body and ailment needs.

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 21 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.

Actually there is less nerve supply to the muscle which holds the eyelids to keep eyes open and hence there is ptosis and if necessary we can resect the involved muscle but it has got its own complications

Hello. 1.Diabetic eye disease comprises a group of eye conditions that affect people with diabetes. These conditions include diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema (DME), cataract, and glaucoma. 2.All forms of diabetic eye disease have the potential to cause severe vision loss and blindness. 3.Diabetic retinopathy involves changes to retinal blood vessels that can cause them to bleed or leak fluid, distorting vision. 4.Diabetic retinopathy is the most common cause of vision loss among people with diabetes and a leading cause of blindness among working-age adults. 5.DME is a consequence of diabetic retinopathy that causes swelling in the area of the retina called the macula. 6.Controlling diabetes—by taking medications as prescribed, staying physically active, and maintaining a healthy diet—can prevent or delay vision loss. 7.Because diabetic retinopathy often goes unnoticed until vision loss occurs, people with diabetes should get a comprehensive dilated eye exam at least once a year. 8.Early detection, timely treatment, and appropriate follow-up care of diabetic eye disease can protect against vision loss. 9.Diabetic retinopathy can be treated with several therapies, used alone or in combination. Diabetic retinopathy and DME are detected during a comprehensive dilated eye exam that includes: A.Visual acuity testing. This eye chart test measures a person’s ability to see at various distances. B.Tonometry. This test measures pressure inside the eye. C.Pupil dilation. Drops placed on the eye’s surface dilate (widen) the pupil, allowing a physician to examine the retina and optic nerve. D.Optical coherence tomography (OCT). This technique is similar to ultrasound but uses light waves instead of sound waves to capture images of tissues inside the body. OCT provides detailed images of tissues that can be penetrated by light, such as the eye. The retina problems due to diabetes can be treated with several therapies that may be used alone or in combination. (1) Anti-VEGF Injection Therapy. Anti-VEGF drugs are injected into the vitreous gel. (2) Focal/grid macular laser surgery. In focal/grid macular laser surgery, a few to hundreds of small laser burns are made to leaking blood vessels in areas of edema and bleeding. (3) Corticosteroids. Corticosteroids, either injected or implanted into the eye, may be used alone or in combination with other drugs or laser surgery to treat DME. Being a retina specialist, I do understand your problem. I would again remind you to keep the blood sugar strictly under control and avoid fluctuations of any sort. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care-regards

I am always suffer from cold. And in morning I am not able to see property because of tears.
If symptoms are sneezing, running nose, blocked nose 1. Take proper rest/ lot of fluids 2. Take proper home made diet. 3. Steam inhalation carefully by steam inhaler twice a day for 2-3 days frequent/ continuous cough cold may be because of many reasons like: 1. Any ent problem like dns polyp sinusitis 2. Low immunity 3. Allergic condition so you need to consult ENT doctor for proper examination and further management.

Eyes appear red and painful because the vessels at the surface of the white portion of the eye (sclera) become swollen. Vessels may swell due to: • Eye dryness • Too much sun exposure • Dust or other particles in the eye • Allergies • Infection • Injury .

Hello, Bloodshot eyes appear red because the vessels at the surface of the white portion of the eye become swollen. Vessels may swell due to: Eye dryness Too much sun exposure Dust or other particles in the eye Allergies Infection Injury Eye infections or inflammation can cause redness as well as possible itching, discharge, pain, or vision problems. Other causes of eye redness include Colds or allergies, Acute glaucoma, Corneal scratches: Injuries caused by sand, dust, or overuse of contact lenses. Sometimes, a bright red spot, called a subconjunctival hemorrhage, will appear on the white of the eye. This often happens after straining or coughing, which causes a broken blood vessel on the surface of the eye. Most often, there is no pain and your vision is normal. It is almost never a serious problem. Because the blood leaks into the conjunctiva, which is clear, you cannot wipe or rinse the blood away. Like a bruise, the red spot will go away within a week or two. Management: - Try to rest your eyes if redness is due to fatigue or eye strain. No other treatment is needed. - Wash your hands, hold clean water in your hand, keep your eyes closer to the water and dip the eyes by blinking the eyelids frequently in the held water in hand. Repeat it for 3-4 times again. - Avoid watching T.V., working on computer or mobile, reading or frequently keep blinking your eyes to avoid dryness. Take frequent breaks in between. - In case there is itching, use a clean napkin or a tissue to wipe the tears and cleaning the eyelids gently. -Wear an UV-rays protected sunglasses while you are out in sun. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe’s Belladonna 30 and Euphrasia 30 - both thrice daily for 4 days. Use Euphrasia Eye drops twice daily. Revert back thereafter.

Mr. Lybrate-user kumar, this could be simple viral fever, which is invariably self limiting, does not need any major treatment. What is required is a good rest, good hydration with oral rehydraton solution, about one and half liter a day and some fever reducing tablets. The condition improves in 3 to 4 days.

You may feel you do not have a refractive error. It is possible that you have ataract and it is also possible that you have some form of refractive errror shich could be corrected with just glasses. Another possibility is that you have some amount of dry eye. It is hence advisable to get yourself personally checked by an ophthalmologist.

Hi lybrate-user. You had injury over left eye orbital space. According to anatomy this used empty space where fluid or blood accumulates very easily. So we got swelling and redness with tenderness over this area. It requires large time to resolve such damage. You had black mark which is remain purpura that is (bleeding beneath skin) mark. You can go with ayurveda use yashtimadhu churna mix with milk and apply over affected area. Take haridra khanda daily morning with milk.

If you have got number checked and hasn't changed, then it could be probably dryness of eyes due to long sitting for studies. Wash your eyes 4 to 5 times in a day, this will keep your eyes cool and decrease dryness. If that doesn't work in that case consult me to know some eye drops regarding this.

My husband had some rust and metal fragments removed from his eye five days ago. He is having severe light sensitivity. What should we do?

MBBS, MS - Ophthalmology
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
It seems that your injury is not resolved completely. If you have taken medication as prescribed properly, it should have been healed by this time. Sometimes, in cases of metallic foreign body removal the rust is left behind in the eye, that later causes irritation and photophobia (light sensitivity) . You should again have a visit and get it removed completely.
