I am having frequent eye styes in both eyes every month also having eye allergy from 10 years. Using antibiotic to cure it. What is the permanent solution for it.

Phaco Development Program, Fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology, DNB Ophtalmology, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Mysore
1. Antibiotic cannot cure allergy. You will need to use some anti-allergic drug like Olapatadine (like Pataday once daily in morning or IF2 twice a day) 2. Frequent rubbing of eyes can cause recurrent stye in both eyes. If there is any other lid pathology also this can happen. Use good anti-allergic drugs, a good lubricating drop (like Refresh tears 3-4 times/day). Avoid rubbing your eyes. If you have irritation wash with cold water or place a cube of ice over your closed eyes lightly for half a minute. Also consider taking some omega 3 fatty acid supplementation (like seven seas tablet once daily)

Having cyl no. +sph no. Of +3+1.25 on both eyes giving 6/6( R) & 6/9 (L) vision I face difficulty even with glasses, should I go for Lasik at this age of 44 yrs so that at least my dist vision is corrected properly ?

Phaco Development Program, Fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology, DNB Ophtalmology, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Mysore
I would not recommend LASIK for the following reasons: 1. LASIK for plus powers is not very predictable. 2. Age: there is more chances of residual power or power changing even after LASIK. It is better that once you start developing cataract go in for early cataract surgery rather than go for LASIK now.

It could be due to transient dryness. Use the 20-20-20 rule. That is after every 20 minutes for 20 secs look at a distance beyond 20 feet. Also try palming. Do some eye exercises like pencil pushup. If it still persists please get an eye examination.

I HV myopia, -1.75D . I want to use corneal refractive therapy for curing my eye. What should I do?

I HV myopia, -1.75D . I want to use corneal refractive therapy for curing my eye. What should I do?
Hi, before opting for corneal refractive therapy, you can have homoeopathic medicines which will reduce your power gradually as well as will also reduce the myopic tendency. Include the following for getting better vision: vitamins a, c, e, and minerals like copper and zinc are essential to eyesight. Get the antioxidants from dark leafy greens, egg yolks, yellow peppers, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Include garlic and onions. Blueberries, grapes as they have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help improve your vision. Dha is a fatty acid found in coldwater fish like salmon, sardines and mackerel. Exercises for strengthening eye muscles: -begin by partially closing your eyes; the lids should only be halfway shut. After holding for 10-15 seconds, close your eyes very slowly. Take a few deep breaths to increase oxygen in the blood. -warm your eyes. Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Repeat this three times. -hold a pen at arm's length. Focus your gaze on the tip of the pen. Bring the pen closer to your nose at a slow and steady pace. Repeat this exercise 5-10 times. -concentrate your vision on the tip of your nose. Then shift your gaze to an object further away, either at arm's length or 20 feet away. Then shift your eyes back to the tip of your nose. Repeat this exercise 10 times. -sit in a relaxed but upright position. Begin by look to the left-most position (without moving your head) and hold to stretch your eye muscles. Hold for 5 counts. Blink and return your gaze back to look straight in front of you. Then look to the right-most position with your gaze and hold for 5 counts. Repeat 3 times, blinking between each hold. Then, repeat this exercise looking up and then down. Do not forget about blinking. -sit in a relaxed but upright position. Look up and to your right for 5 seconds. Return your gaze to center. Look up to and to your left for 5 seconds. Return your gaze to center. Look down and to your right for 5 seconds. Return your gaze to center. Look down and to your left for 5 seconds. Insufficient sleep may weaken your vision, so shoot for 8 hours of sound sleep a night. Rest your eyes 10 minutes for every 50 minutes spent reading or in front of the computer. If your eyes feel overly tired, lie down and place cooling cucumber slices over your eyelids. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine which will help you in preventing first and then reducing the power of your eyes (if the eye power is less). Take physostigma 6/ thrice daily for 4-6 months and instill euphrasia eye drops twice a day. Thereafter, revert back for further guidance.

Hello this is probably our third conversation. Nothing is wrong with surgery or lens. -1 number is for distance vision and plus number is for near vision meaning you would need two glasses to see clear for distance and near or you can choose bifocal glasses.

Dear lybrate-user your work stress is also one of the reason for your headache and your irregular food habits. And coukd be junk food, and your age is only 23 years I do not want to say any difficulty things to you. You have to go for regular walking. As brisk walk, which make you active all the day and drink at least 3-4 liters of water eigther it should be chilled or normal room temperature. Have healthy food and a fruit a day and every 3 hrs please have something do all the things what I said above from the say 1 still its not better I will prescribe sone homoeopathic medicines.

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

Hello lybrate-user, if you are not able to see distant objects please go for a vision test and if you have got correction then start wearing glasses. If you are having a number and not wearing glasses then your eyesight might deteriorate and no medications will help. Also start having a balanced diet with more green vegetables and fruits.

My eye and around that area is looking dull. So it always keep my face looks dull.

My eye and around that area is looking dull. So it always keep my face looks dull.
Hi, the skin around the eyes is ten times thinner and sensitive than the skin on the face. As we age, skin loses its elasticity and becomes even thinner due to a breakdown of collagen. This can be further aggravated by sun exposure, smoking, and other environmental exposures. The points which are important in maintaining healthy skin around the eyes: -drink plenty of water. Water plays a crucial role maintaining the elasticity of skin. -avoid smoking cigarettes. Nicotine constricts blood vessels in the face and under the eyes. Constricted vessels also make it difficult for nutrients to be absorbed, which leads to a breakdown of collagen. -stay out of the sun. Overexposure to ultraviolet rays causes melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells, to mature abnormally. This results in age spots and uneven pigmentation. Uv rays are responsible for up to 90% of aging and can add several years to your appearance. -wear sunglasses to avoid squinting and protection from uv-rays. -get plenty of rest. Fatigue can cause skin to look pale and gaunt. -limit alcohol intake. Excessive drinking can cause dehydration, so limit yourself to a glass or two of wine every week -use cotton balls when removing makeup to avoid unnecessary tugging and pulling on the delicate tissue. -use a quality professionally recommended skin care product for the area around the eyes. Apply homoeopathic under-eye cream by bakson twice a day daily.

Hello. I think you have allergic conjunctivitis. 1. Eye allergies, called allergic conjunctivitis, are a common condition that occurs when the eyes react to something that irritates them (called an allergen). 2. The eyes produce a substance called histamine to fight off the allergen. As a result, the eyelids and conjunctiva (the thin, filmy membrane that covers the inside of your eyelids) become red, swollen and itchy, with tearing and burning. The key to treating eye allergies is a. Avoid or limit contact with the substance causing the problem. B. Avoid rubbing eyes instead do cold compresses. Use antiallergic eyedrop along with lubricating eyedrop. This will help you I am very sorry dear to say that there is no medicine that can cure allergy. Only way is to stay away from all those things that you are allergic to.
