"Sarvendriya Naam Nayanam Pradhanam" this Sanskrit proverb means, in all sensory organs of our body the eye is very important organ. Now a days not only in adolescence but also in most of the children the eye sight problems are starting. It is nothing but due to the continuous usage of their android cell phones, computers & late night sleeping. So with these various causes due to the stress happening on the retina of the eye these eye sight problems are arising. So to avoid these eye sight problems certain foods were explained to eat regularly as follows:-

(1) all the seasonal fruits are regularly to be taken, because the fruits are having plenty of vitamins especially" c. More over the orange fruits are having full of vitamin - c.

(2) the carret vegetable is having vitamin-" a" carotenoid content is more useful for healthy eye sight.

(3) in our old ancient system of ayurveda the" haridra" was explained to use for avoiding the cataract formation. The haridra is having a, b, e vitamins, more over having antioxidants. So the glass of milk with little harendra, will give good results.

(4) tamata the vegetable is having vitamin" c. It improves the good eye sight.

(5) the olive oil is having full of vitamins antioxidants. It keeps up the eye sight in a healthy manner, so in our kitchen we can use olive oil for our food curries preparation.

As per the ayurvedic principles for the good eye sight the best medicines were explained.

The pain of eyes is due to staining on eyes .While watching TV or using mobile for long intervals continuously,eyes get exhausted. While watching TV/Mobile make sure that the lightening in room is proper and you are at least at a distance of 10 Feet from TV to reduce and negate the effects. You can also reduce the intensity of the TV/Mobile screen by attaching a filter or by getting an eye-friendly screen. Above all, one must try to reduce the amount of TV/Mobile usage or take frequent breaks. Homoeopathic medicine CINELUBE EYE DROPS ( HAPDCO) Pour 2 drops 3 times daily.

The retina is the light- sensitive layer of tissue that lines the back of your eye. The retina is vital for vision. Retina requires a constant supply of blood to make sure your cells (Rods and cones) get enough nutrients and oxygen. However, it’s possible for one of the vessels carrying blood to or from the retina to become blocked or have a blood clot. This is called an occlusion and this can cause blood or other fluids to build up and prevent the retina from properly filtering light. When light is blocked or fluids are present, a sudden loss of vision can occur. The severity of vision loss may depend on where the blockage or clot occurred. Retinal vascular occlusion is a potentially serious condition, especially if hardening of the arteries, or atherosclerosis, already exists. It most often occurs in middle-aged and elderly people. -------------------------------The specific cause of vascular blockage or blood clots in the retina is unknown. It may occur when the veins of the eye are too narrow. However, other factors that affect blood flow can put you at a higher risk of having retinal vascular occlusion. These risk factors include:------------- •atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries-------------------- •blood clots, which often travel from elsewhere in the body to the eye--------- •a blockage or narrowing in the carotid arteries of the neck----------- •heart problems, including irregular rhythm or valve issues-------------- •diabetes----------- •high blood pressure-------- •high cholesterol----------- •intravenous (IV) drug use------------- •glaucoma, which is a condition that damages your optic nerve----------- •smoking-------------- •rare blood disorders---------------- •macular edema, which is fluid buildup, swelling, and thickening of the central part of the retina------------------------------- --------------------So Mr. Sharma please consult your Family doctor immediately so that he can diagnose the cause of your Eye clot thet whether it is a localized problem in the Eye or the roots are some where else in your body and he will guide you future course of ytreatment along with consulting an Opthalmologist---------------------------Don’t waste time-----------

Me lybrate-user, dryness of eyes at your age is not good. I suspect it may not actual dry eyes. Simple way of avoiding dryness is proper blinking of eyes. Keep your brain alert about blinking. You can use ophthacare eyedrops (himalaya) but not more than one month.

Hello lybrate-user. Redness of the eye is one of the most prevalent problems observed. Redness of the eyes has multiple causes associated with it. To enumerate a few common causes: (1) allergy of the eye. It is usually caused by improper eye hygiene. It occurs with symptoms of pricking, itching, irritation, watering, foreign body sensation and discomfort. There is a tendency to rub the eyes with fingers, handkerchief, cloth, etc. This is not a good habit because it tends to transmit lots of virus, bacteria and dust into the eye. Allergy usually presents with symptoms of watering (clear water), redness and itching of the eye. Thus, eye hygiene remains the principal modality of treatment along with eye drops as a supplement. (2) infectious conjunctivitis: this is usually associated with white-yellowish discharge. There may occur associated pain and sensation of itching, pricking, watering and discomfort. If so, it would be a good idea to go and show to an eye specialist in person. (3) foreign body lodged in the eye. This is more commonly associated with people who drive 2 wheeler vehicles without protection. It occurs more commonly in one eye. Foreign bodies that commonly get lodged are eyelashes, insect wings, small insects, dust particles, iron particles (more common with people working in the iron industry) the solution for a foreign body lodged in the eye would be better provided by an eye specialist at the clinic because it would require immediate removal from the eye and appropriate therapy. (4) raised eye pressure: this is a condition known as glaucoma. It is not so common as the previous mentioned conditions. There is usually associated pain in the eyes. It is commonly bilateral (occurs in both eyes). There is usually a positive family history of glaucoma associated in a majority of the cases. (5) inflammation of the covering layers of the eyeball. This is known as" uveitis" it is also a relatively less common condition. There is associated pain. It would require a thorough eye checkup including the retina-thus a good idea would be to visit the eye specialist in person. (6) increased blood pressure. This has known to cause redness which is also known as sub-conjunctival hemorrhage. The redness in this case tends to be deep dark and usually occurs only in one portion of the eye. In this regard, a complete ophthalmic evaluation and a systemic evaluation is warranted. (7) injury/ trauma to the eye in any form may cause redness of the eyes. This should be taken seriously and assessed in detail by an eye specialist in person. From the symptoms described by you, it seems more likely to be a case of allergy. Maintaining the precautions and hygiene that I mentioned should probably work well for you. You could also use a lubricant eye drop along with an anti-histamine eye drop. (3-4 times daily). Avoid tobacco chewing, cigarette smoking, hukka smoking, alcohol consumption as a rule. Also, you might require a complete eye evaluation in order to rule out other causes. This would be possible only by examining your eyes in person. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care, regards.

Ok if this the first time you have checked, then just wear glasses, repeat after 3-6 months if increasing then it would be a matter of concern.

I have a problem in vision. When I see on white objects or shiny objects. A black spot appears before my left eye. When I rotate my eye that spot moves along with the eye. Even if I see at sky, I would see that black spot in front of my eye. Which rotates along with my eye. It disturbs me mostly during studies as a black spot appears on the pages, that diverts my attention.

Hello lybrate-user good morning 1. That black spot is floater 2. Floaters are due to vitreous (gel in eye) liquifaction. Which is natural phenomenon 3. This floater will not affect your vision 4. There is no cure/treatment for floater 5. One solution is to avoid it. Try to avoid it. Keep doing your work. After few days. Your brain will start neglecting it. Avoid it and concentrate on your studies. I hope this will help you.

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 24 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. You can use lubricating eyedrops to get rid of that pain.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user, well your son is having chronic allergy, frequent cold and redness of eyes with frequent eye rubbing are the symptoms. Chronic allergy is quite commonly seen these days and this is seen frequently in your son's age group. Don't worry about it but this problem continues for long and you have to be vigilant to get him treated properly everytime. He has to use glasses everytime as this will help with his eyesight as well as keep dust n other allergens away from eyes. Wash his eyes every time he comes home from outside. Start with some immunity booster preprations and multivitamin supplements along with antihistamines. Take care.

Dont worry. Caract is an old age problem. If it is present n person less dan 50 yrs its termed as presenile. It can b presenile perse or secondry to trauma, ocular infection, etc (complicated cataract) it has surgical cure. But the type of surgery will depend after accesing your lens status. Lens capsule status, state of the pupil and associated conditions. So see an ophthlmologist who would asses all dese and explain you the surgical procedure. Do not panic.
