I am 32 years old and looking for LASIK surgery, can you please tell me what is phacoemulsification?

I am 32 years old and looking for LASIK surgery, can you please tell me what is phacoemulsification?
Phacoemulsification refers to modern cataract surgery in which the eye's internal lens is emulsified with an ultrasonic handpiece and aspirated from the eye. Aspirated fluids are replaced with irrigation of balanced salt solution, thus maintaining the anterior chamber, as well as cooling the handpiece.

After going through your symptoms and history, you might be suffering from Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS). It is commonly seen in software engineers or those who use computers/ mobiles/ tabs constantly for a long duration. Here are a certain tips I suggest which you bring relief to your symptoms. 1. Minimize the glare from the screen to an optimum level or use an antiglare coated screens on iPad/ laptops/ desktops. 2. Blink frequently. We invariably tend to blink less when focussing on the screen. Make sure you blink frequently so that there is adequate tear secretion and lubrication to the eyes which will prevent dryness and the problems associated with it. 3. To reduce your risk of tiring your eyes by constantly focusing on your screen, look away from your computer/ mobile at least every 20 minutes and gaze at a distant object (at least 20 feet away) for at least 20 seconds. 4.Use cooling glasses to protect your eyes from the radiation from your system. 5. These symptoms tend to aggravate during summer. So you can use lubricating eye drops such as Refrest tears eye drops or Tears naturale forte eye drops which will be available over the counter. I hope these remedies will help you alleviate your symptoms. Please do write to me whether this helps or not.

Cataract at an Early Age

Ophthalmologist, Gurgaon

I am Dr Neeraj Sanduja, a retina specialist working in Fortis hospital and I have got my own Centre we are nine retina Centre Gurgaon. I will tell you briefly about cataract Safed Motia which is prone to occur in almost every patient with age. Jo cataract hota hai Safed Motia uska most common reason hai aap ki age jaise jaise age badti hai chances of cataract increases, iske alawa agar aapka high blood sugar level hai to bhi aapko cataract jaldi ho sakta hai. Even injury to the eye koi bhi traum ho therefore, ball lage aapki aankh pe, it can lead to cataract formation. Baccho mein bhi cataract ho jata hai, isko congenital cataract kehte hain, development lead cataract bolte hain. Toh yeh bahut zaroori hota hai cataract jaldi pata lage, isko time pe detect kiya jaye eye specialist se aur uska treatment kiya jaye. Cataract ke symptoms kya hote hain, isme usually kya hota hai aapki vision jo hoti hai woh dheere- dheere kam hone lag jati hai aap ko dur ki cheezein jo hain saaf nazar nahi aati hain, TV pe jo font hote hain woh aap ko saaf nazar nahi aa rahe hote, aap cricketers ka score acche se nahi pad pa rahe hote, even jawab drive kar rahe hote hain toh light aapko faily hui lag rahi hoti hai, yeh sab cheezein indicate karti hai ki aap ki aap ke saath kuch galat ho raha hai. So this is the time to you should go for an eye doctor to rule out whether you are having cataract or any other problem. Agar aap ka doctor, eye doctor aapko cataract diagnose karta hai to uska treatment sirf surgical treatment hota hai, koi medical treatment nahi hota hai iske liye. Surgical treatment mein hum microincision cataract surgery karte hain jo Phacoemulsification techniques se kiya jata hai, jisse bahut hai chote cheeray se, around 2 millimeter cheeray se, incision se hum cataract ko dissolve karke nikal lete hain aur uski jagah par artificial foldable intraocular lens ankh ke andar laga dete hain, jisse aap ki vision kafi acchi ho jati hai. Jo wo lenses hote hain woh monofocal hote hain matlab jo ki sirf dur ya nazdik ke liye kaam karenge. Multifocal bhi aate hain, multifocal mein aap ko dur aur nazdik dono jagah pe chashme ki requirement kam ho jati hai but uske sath kuch side effect bhi involved hote hain jaise aap ko night vision aapko driving me dikkat aati hai multifocal lenses ke sath. Toh good standard hum yehi kehke chalet hain ki monofocal lenses are the fantastic durable lenses. Surgery ke baad jo thoda bahut aapka glasses ka number badta hai, woh aapko chashmay de diye jate hain, surgery ke baad precaution bahut jyada nahi hoti hai sirf aapko ek se do hafte ke liye ankh me pani dalna hota hai aur dhul mitti se bachana hota hai aur aaj ke time mein jo surgery hai kafi predictable safe ho gayi hai aur surgery se related complication bahut kam ho gaye hain. Toh agar aapko koi bhi dikkat aati hai vision main, toh aapko apne eye doctor ko consult karna chahiye and he will decide that what problem you are having and what is the treatment.

Thank you very much.

Dear lybrate-user:- as per your stated complaints, you r suffering from simple myopia. If you're feeling discomfort with specks then contact lens is another better & safe option. Lasik laser is advance laser keratectomy. It give rid of speck/contact lens. It is opd procedure, safer, painless procedure. You can attend social ceremony after surgery also.

Hello, get your eyes tested from an opthalmologist. Include the following for getting better vision and healthy eyes: 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. 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: use euphrasia eye drops twice a day. Thereafter, revert back for further guidance.

How Homeopathy Helps Treat Conjunctivitis?

BHMS, M.D.

How Homeopathy Helps Treat Conjunctivitis?

Conjunctivitis is a medical condition that is marked by redness in the eyes owing to the inflammation of the conjunctiva, which is the membrane covering the white part of the eye. The condition is further characterized by the discharge of yellowish pus fluid from the corner of the eye. This condition, which is essentially an infection, can occur to people of all age brackets. 

Causes and Symptoms:

Conjunctivitis can be caused due to several reasons namely allergies, irritants, bacterial and viral infections, among others. Apart from the redness in the eye, some other apparent symptoms of conjunctivitis are: 

  1. Thin and watery discharge in viral conjunctivitis 
  2. Thick, mucous like discharge ranging from yellow to green in case of bacterial conjunctivitis
  3. Sticky eyelids
  4. Increased reactivity to light 
  5. Blurred or foggy vision
  6. Nasal discharges 

It is difficult to distinguish between viral, allergic and bacterial conjunctivitis. Different fields of medicine prescribe treatments according to the cause of the condition. Although subtle differences, such as thick and thin discharges can be observed, in Homeopathy the cause is not that important. 

Homeopathic medicines are natural and highly effective. The medications, which are prescribed in Homeopathy can more than manage the discharges, swelling, the sandy sensation and redness in the eyes. Homeopathic medicines are effective when the condition causes the eye to get dry, red, congested and swollen. Bathing the eyes with sterilized salt water is also a popular method of treating the infection. In addition to these, Homeopathic doctors also provide tips to curb the likelihood of further complications. Removing your contact lenses while treatment and cleaning your spectacles on a regular basis, if you wear any, are duly recommended.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
