Get your eyesight checked for power. Eat healthy diet rich in vitamin a and if you are above 20 years you can undergo laser surgery.

I constantly keep thinking of getting rid of my spectacles. My family took me to psychiatrist and they have put me on OCD and anxiety medicine. Should I take it or just go for eye surgery as I am eligible for it.

Dear lybrate-user, Your family is interested in you. Probably they felt you are more worried about getting rid of specs than other serious signs of anxiety interfering in your studies. Please ask the psychiatrist what is the diagnosis. You are eligible to ask for it. It may be a body dysmorphic disorder or OCD or Anxiety disorder. If it is so, even after eye surgery, your other symptoms will not improve. Only expensive surgical cost. Please take the medicines prescribed by psychiatrist. Many medicines are given for many other illnesses. There are no OCD medicine - they are antidepressants and anxiolytics. Names and dose differs according to diagnosis. Your parents will take you for eye surgery, if your education. Improves and you have a good opinion of yourself.

Hello, if you are excessively involved in the masturbation then you should control it because it may ham you also. You should do the below exercises to strengthen the eye muscles. Exercises for eyes: Warm your eyes. Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Repeat this three times. Roll your eyes. Start by looking up and then slowly circle 10 times clockwise and 10 times counterclockwise. Focus. Hold a pen at arm's length, focus your eyes on it, and slowly bring the pen closer until it's about 6 inches away from your nose. Then slowly move it back, keeping your eyes focused on the pen, 10 times in all. Massage your temples. Using your thumb knuckles, massage your temples in small circles, 20 times in one direction and 20 in the other. Repeat the same actions above the mid-point of the eyebrows at the forehead, then below the eyes on both sides of the bridge of the nose. Take a mini-nap. Put your head back, close your eyes, and relax for 3 minutes. 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 rather reducing the power of your eyes. Take Physostigma 6/ thrice daily for 1 month. Thereafter, revert back for further guidance.

Hi, yes, there is a strong relation with eye-sight having refractive errors causing headache. The eyes during accommodation for normal vision sends signals to the brain, when there is mismatch like what happens in refractive errors then vision center in brain has to face extra load identifying and correcting the signals. Hence in situations like this will experience in the form of headache. Try to consult your eye doctor and get appropriate glasses for your refractive error accordingly. Take care.

Her right eye shows red spots over white area in right side suddenly. Wat is the reason and treatment for that.

Her right eye shows red spots over white area in right side suddenly. Wat is the reason and treatment for that.
Looks like she has a sub conjunctival hemmorage that is. A small vessel has ruptured and some blood has accumulated there which is showing of as a small red spot. Of sudden nature. But you have not mentioned the age of patient .It is very important as causes of this rupture of vessel or accumulation of blood differ in different age groups. For example in elderly it could be one of the signs of uncontrolled sudden rise in blood pressure, where in younger patients it could be due to simple reason like sever cough or it be trauma or it cold be a sign of bleeding disorder .so history of any other body problems is of prime importance depending on the age of patient. Consult your ophthalmologist or neuro ophthalmologist for guidance.

yes you can plan lasik laser surgery. Lasik is a simple laser procedure which changes the shape of the cornea so that the light rays fall on the retina properly. It is a painless procedure. It is a day care procedure does not require any injections, does not require admission, you can simply resume your duties in 2 days. Cost varies from centre to centre. Side effects are usually limited to dryness of eyes for few months. We can do lasik anytime after age of 18 years. You need to undergo proper prelasik checkup to decide whether lasik is safe for you or not

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

For temporary relief of itching, try these self-care measures: use a high-quality moisturizing cream on your skin. Apply an anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area as prescribed by me avoid scratching whenever possible. Apply cool, wet compresses. Take a lukewarm bath. Wear smooth-textured, loose cotton clothing. Do reply back for private consultation for a detailed treatment plan which will cure your itching problem.

Hello, Apply Homoeopathic medicine – Thiosinaminum Q few drops mixed in a glycerin solution on scars that are visible (as it is less greasy, so is more easily absorbed into the skin). Also take Causticum 200 orally twice daily for 4weeks.

Contact lenses and lasik laser surgery are the two options for you. Contact lenses will just require a contact lens trial and would not cost you much for lasik surgery, cost varies from center to center. You need to undergo a proper prelasik checkup before planning your lasik surgery.

Hello. There is no medication or food for improving eye sight or to get rid of glasses. Get your vision tested and wear glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser as your age is now 16 years so your number will not increase much 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. After age of 18 yrs.

Types, Causes and Symptoms of Glaucoma

Diploma in Ophthalmology, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Hyderabad
Types, Causes and Symptoms of Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a disease that damages your eye's optic nerve. It usually happens when fluid builds up in the front part of your eye. That extra fluid increases the pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve.Glaucoma is the second largest cause of eye blindness in the world.

There are several types of Glaucoma:

  1. Open-angle Glaucoma
  2. Normal-tension Glaucoma
  3. Angle-closure Glaucoma
  4. Congenital Glaucoma
  5. Secondary Glaucoma
  6. Glaucoma suspect

How will you know that you are suffering from Glaucoma?

Only half the people with glaucoma are aware that they are suffering from this condition. When Glaucoma develops, there are usually no early symptoms. This is why glaucoma can 'steal' sight gradually.

Symptoms:

  1. In its early stages, open-angle Glaucoma has no obvious symptoms. As the disease progresses more blind spots develop in the peripheral (side) view.
  2. An attack of angle-closure Glaucoma includes the following:
  • Severe pain in the eye or forehead
  • Redness of the eye
  • Decreased vision or blurred vision
  • Vision rainbows or halos
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

If you get any of the symptoms rush to your doctor and take an eye exam as soon as possible.

Causes:

  1. Eye injury
  2. Inflammation of the eye
  3. Dilating eye drops
  4. Blocked or restricted drainage in your eye
  5. Use of steroid-containing medications (pills, eye drops, sprays)
  6. Poor or reduced blood flow to your optic nerve
  7. High or elevated blood pressure

Who is at Risk for Glaucoma?
People with more risk of developing Glaucoma include people who:

  1. Are over age 40
  2. Have family members with glaucoma
  3. Have high eye pressure
  4. Are farsighted or nearsighted
  5. Have had an eye injury
  6. Have diabetes, migraines, high blood pressure, poor blood circulation or other health problems affecting the whole body.
