Hi I am rajat I am 21 years old boy. I am eye night time not working and any item no seeing.
Hi. Hi. Night blindness is a condition that makes it difficult to see in low light. The human eye got a very sophisticated system which can function from very dark to very bright light. But in the case of night blindness, the eyes fails to adapt to darkness. Night blindness can be an early sign of vitamin A deficiency, often the result of a diet lacking in vegetables containing beta-carotene, which the body can make into vitamin A. A lack of zinc can reduce retinol dehydrogenase, an enzyme needed to help vitamin A work in the eye. Zinc helps night blindness in those who are zinc-deficient. Most people don’t get enough zinc in their diets. Vitamin A is found naturally in many foods: cod liver oil, liver, sweet potato, carrot, broccoli, butter, kale, spinach, pumpkin, Cheddar cheese, egg, apricot, papaya, mango, pea, milk, tomatoes, seaweed Get your eyes tested from an Opthalmologist. Share the report with me.

My mother ( Age: 66) was suffering from MOTIABIND ( Cataract). She was operated with laser & a lens was fitted to her eye, But even after operation she could not see clearly & when she uses glass she can find some improvement. I discussed the matter with my friends & relatives & all of them said that after operation she should see clearly. Now the doctor who has operated says that there is some problem in her retina. Please suggest what can be done to improve my mother's vision.

You have to understand that power of IOL placed in the eye is based on some measurements taken before surgery. All the methods are not fool proof and there may be some residual power for which she may need to wear glasses. Yes there is a possibility that she has some retina problem which needs to be addressed separately. Consult a good retina specialist and take his/her advice

Cataract Myths and Facts

Super-Speciality Trained Ophthalmologists
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
Cataract Myths and Facts

When Sheena (42), a banking professional, got to know that her mother (72) has been diagnosed with a cataract formation in both her eyes, she didn't know how to react. The thought of 'second opinion' was constantly running through her mind, making it difficult for her to concentrate at work, just then an acquaintance informed Sheena about all the misconceptions she had about Cataract Surgery and the treatments available. Probably, for Sheena, Cataract Surgery still meant the way it used to be during her grandparents' time - waiting for surgery until the cataract ripens, the process of undergoing pain, wearing black tinted glasses for over a month, no TV, and endless list of precautions to be followed post operative. Infact, there are numerous people like Sheena who still are ignorant about the Blade-Free Laser Cataract Surgery.

Apart from being blade-less, through this Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery, it takes less than 1 minute to finish the surgical process! What's more? Well, this latest technique also offers a totally prick-less, painless, bloodless, stitch-less and a bandage free solution to the patient. And, the results are immediate and effective.

Let's debunk the misinformation about Cataract Surgery and help you get to the truth.

Myth#1 Cataracts 'grow' on top of the eye.

FACT:False! Cataracts are a clouding of the eye's lens, and the lens is within the eye, not on its surface. Therefore, during the surgery, the clouded lens of an eye is removed and replaced with an artificial/synthetic lens with a process called Intraocular Lens (IOL) implantation.

Myth#2 Cataract Surgery is scary and painful.

FACT: Not true. Infact, it is one of the safest surgeries possible. Though it can be slightly uncomfortable but shouldn't be painful. Usually four out of five people say that the surgery was easier than they had expected.

Myth#3 I'll need reading glasses after Cataract Surgery.

Fact: Not necessary! New generation Multifocal and 'monovision' replacement lenses correct vision at various points, near and far, and can sometimes reduce the need for glasses too.

Myth#4 A cataract must be 'ripe' before it can be removed.

FACT: In the past this was true, however, with modern cataract surgery, a cataract does not have to 'ripen' to be removed. You can go ahead with a cataract removal surgery as soon as it begins to affect your vision and quality of life.

Myth#5 Only older people develop cataracts.

FACT: Cataracts are common among people over 65 years of age; however, cataracts can occur in people who are younger resulting from conditions such as diabetes, certain medications and other eye problems. In some cases cataracts can be present at time of birth; called congenital cataracts.

Myth#6 Cataracts can spread from one eye to the other.

FACT: False! Cataracts can develop in one eye or both of them, but they do not spread.

Since you are already prescribed spectacles, there could be other, more than one reason for your headaches. These could be migraine type headaches or those due to sinusitis. Migraine headaches can start at any time, can also cause giddiness, vomiting sensation, irritability, etc. Both these conditions need clinical evaluation, apart from an ophthalmologist, a physician or neurologist can also treat migraines. They can also rule out or treat sinusitis medically, though it is ideally done by an ent doctor. Take an appropriate decision as per your symptoms.

Do visit your ent a surgeon again and discuss your problem with him or her. It's seems your sense of balance controlled by inner ear is affected resulting in mild vertigo. Some manoevers are there which help correct this. If you have not had aa routine eye exam done in last 1-2 years. Get your eyes evaluated. It will rule out any refractive error or other eye problem.
