I am a single. I just had a break-up with my loved one. My girlfriend. We were in deep relationship. We had immense love. But not she got married. I am missing her every fraction of second. I am hungry for love. Just love. I need that care, love. What do I do ? All negative thoughts are coming to my mind. Since I am cultured I cannot afford to do any stupid mistakes. Please help me, and tell me how to get out of it.

Please take care of your self. Talk to your closed ones or friends who can understand you. You can also take the help of a counselor (psychologist) to guide you. You have to take positive steps to move on in life. There is no benefit in remaining submerged in negativity. Get involved in work and set a goal for your self for your future. Stay fit because that will help you to stay focused. (you can join some yoga class to get involved into positive health. Investing time for self growth will help you a lot.)

No medicine is available till now which cures refractive error. You are suffering from a refractive error namely myopia. It is a condition in which eye length is longer than normal, which increase up to 18 yrs and normally gets stable. No medicine is available which can decrease the length of the eye.

a high intra ocular pressure injures the optic nerve cells and cause irreversible cell death. These cells can't regenerate and hence vision can't be restored. The eye donation - helps treat corneal opacities if the optic nerve and retina are healthy. The cyclocryo has been advised to decrease the production of intra ocular fluid to help decrease the eye pressure. The doctor will have discussed the possible consequences. Of importance , especially if ur father had primary forms of glaucoma is to evaluate ur eyes n that of close family members to identify their risk of developing glaucoma. Early diagnosis and treatment are invaluable in this disease.

My eyes are heated and water coming from eyes when I work on pc and mobile what is problem is this serious or normal.

My eyes are heated and water coming from eyes when I work on pc and mobile what is problem is this serious or normal.
While using mobile/computer for long intervals continuously, eyes get exhausted. While using mobile/computer make sure that the lightening in room is proper to reduce and negate the effects. You can also reduce the intensity of the mobile/computer screen by attaching a filter or by getting an eye-friendly screen. Above all, one must try to reduce the amount of mobile/computer usage or take frequent breaks. Do not use mobile/computer continuously for more than 30 minutes and most important do not use mobile with low battery. The bright light of the mobile/computer screen gets more focused on our eyes and this causes dryness and heating of the eyes and thus causing weakness of vision and eye and watering eyes---------------- homoeopathic medicine----------------------- cinelube eye drops (hapdco) pour 2 drops 3 times daily.

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 26 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. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

I feel pain on my eyes when I reading and tears come out. What's the problem sir.

I feel pain on my eyes when I reading and tears come out. What's the problem sir.
This condition is called Eye strain, or asthenopia, in which the eyes get tired from excessive or intense use. It can be annoying, but it tends to disappear with rest. Although it’s not often a serious condition, eye strain could be a symptom of an underlying problem. Eye strain is known to cause fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and headaches Eye strain may lead to other problems, such as: •Headaches •Difficulty Concentrating •Irritability •Burning Sensation •Watery Eyes •Dry Eyes •Photophobia •Eye Pain The first thing you can do is change your environment and work habits. By doing this you can relieve the pain without spending money on treatment If you studying or reading, taking eye breaks for five minutes every hour can lessen the strain on your eyes. Simply closing your eyes for a few moments can also do wonders. Try standing up, moving around, or taking a short walk to help regain concentration. Regular eye exercises that involve focusing on different distances can help prevent future straining. Blink often. Blinking refreshes and replenishes your eyes naturally. If you are having trouble with blinking due to the dryness of your eyes, try using Homoeopathic CINELUBE EYEDROPS (HAPDCO) 3 times daily.

Apply rose water in eyes and then put a piece of cotton over eyes and put a small ice cube over it for 2 mins. Your eyes will relaxed after it. Do it for 2-3 times in a day whenever you feel such eyes.
