Hello, Include the following for getting better vision: 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 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 first and reducing the power of your eyes. Take Physostigma 6/ thrice daily for 1 month. Thereafter, revert back for further guidance.

I am using contact lens I have used the expired lens for a day. And I got irritation in my eye. Could you please tell me it will make any problem in my eyes?

MBBS, DOMS
Ophthalmologist, Hyderabad
If irritation persists or increases, it could be a concern, you will need to get yourself checked up by an ophthalmologist to make sure cornea is not infected. If irritation reduces or is relieved completely, you probably had a lucky escape. Meanwhile, you can try using a lubricant eye drop such as zyaqua, 2 or 3 times per day and inform us the response.

Sir meri ankh me allergy ho rhi he aur bahut jyada presaan Kar rhi he give me any suggestion.
If you an allergic tendency which gets aggravated with the change of season, then you should consult your doctor before its onset. Allergy could be seasonal or perennial. It could be due to a particular component or very commonly dust. In either case, you should try to avoid the allergan and visit your eye specialist. If the allergy is mild itching, it can be handled with simple washing of eyes with clean cold water and using mild anti allergic drops like olopatadine along with a lubricant drop. But if the allergy is severe leading to severe itching with redness and watering, its better to consult an eye specialist who will not only prescribe you stronger anti allergic drops but also oral anti allergic tablets. You can even do cold fomentation for severe itching. Never rub your eyes. Its a vicious cycle, the more you rub, more you feel like doing it.

6/9 is measure of how much vision you have, its close to normal 6/6. Your glasses number is -1.75 so you willl not be able to see without glasses. Unfortunately there are no natural medications to remove spectacles permanently. You can either try contact lenses or plan for refractive (lasik) surgery.

I was using an eye drop'acupat' since day before yesterday. I was known that this drop has some side effect on sinus and I was having sinus infection after started using the drop. But now also the infection has not gone. Will it go after some days automatically? Or should I do something for this? I am so thankful to the doctor who will help me.

Hello acupat is basically an antiallergic. To best of my knowledge it has no bad effect on sinus. Regarding allergy. You should avoid rubbing eyes. Do cold compresses and keep using acupat twice daily.

Get your refraction done and wear spectacles eat green veggies. Carrots. Strain less your eyes. Relax your eyes in between work. Blink regularily if working for long time on computer. Lower the brightness of your screen. Work under adequately illuminated conditions. If needed wear corrective spectacles. These r few things you can take care of. Otherwise as such no options available which wd increases your eyesight.
