Healthy Eyes - 6 Tips At Your Rescue!

Healthy Eyes - 6 Tips At Your Rescue!

Eyes are very important organs as they provide you with the ability to process visual detail and detect light. However, because your eyes are exposed to harsh climate and pollutants, they can get spoilt. Here are a few basic tips you can follow to take care of your eyes:

  1. Eye yoga: Eye Yoga is an ancient method of relaxing your eyes and is also known as “palming”. All you need to do is cup your palms and place them over closed eyes in a way wherein your fingertips are touching your forehead. This helps in blocking out light completely. While cupping your eyes, take long, deep breaths which can help relax your eyes and mind.
  2. Eat healthy: It is important to eat healthy in order to maintain healthy eyes. Medical practitioners believe that vitamins have anti oxidants which slow down age related problems in the eye. You should be eating foods rich in Vitamin A, C and E, Zinc rich foods and foods with folic acid. Food items such as carrots, lettuce, spinach and kale can help in keeping your eyes healthy for longer.
  3. Wear dark sunglasses: Every time your eyes are exposed to the sun, they have to tolerate the harmful UV-A and UV-B rays. The ultraviolet rays can prove to be very damaging for your eyes as they affect the optic nerve. Hence, you should always wear dark coloured sunglasses in the sun to protect your eyes.
  4. Take breaks: Staring at a computer screen or a mobile screen all day can prove to be very harmful to your eyes. According to a study, when you stare a screen for too long, you blink lesser. This can lead to dry eyes.
  5. Get required rest: It is important to rest your eyes and free them of the strain they endure daily. Hence, you should aim to get at least 6-8 hours of sleep time daily to give them the required rest time.
  6. Quit smoking: Smoking cigarettes can be harmful for your eyes as it increases chances of macular degeneration and cataracts. Smoking also increases chances of optic nerve damage as it impairs blood circulation to the eyes. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ophthalmologist.

I am a colour blindness person. I just want to know that I can get a treaent on colour blindness.

I am a colour blindness person. I just want to know that I can get a treaent on colour blindness.
Hello lybrate-user. There are different reasons for color blindness. (1) majority people have color blindness since childhood/ birth. This is chiefly due to genetic alteration in the chromosomes of the body. (2) a small fraction of color blindness may occur later on in life. It may have associations with problems of the optic nerve or the macula of the retina. There are a few neurological problems that have been known to cause color blindness. Thus, to conclude, a total thorough evaluation is necessary to decide whether treatment is possible. If you have your eye examination past and present records, send them to me. I will have a look at them and guide you further. (use the lybrate facility for sending your reports). We should definitely try and get a solution to your problem if possible. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care-regards.

I have red eyes last 3 months sometimes they are yellow too is this due to less water consumption?

I have red eyes last 3 months sometimes they are yellow too is this due to less water consumption?
Eyes appear red because the vessels at the surface of the white portion of the eye (sclera) become swollen. Vessels may swell due to: • Eye dryness • Too much sun exposure • Dust or other particles in the eye • Allergies • Infection • Injury Eye infections or inflammation can cause redness as well as possible itching, discharge, pain, or vision problems. These may be due to: • Blepharitis: Swelling along the edge of the eyelid. • Conjunctivitis: Swelling or infection of the clear tissue that lines the eyelids and covers the surface of the eye (the conjunctiva). This is often referred to as "pink eye." • Corneal ulcers: Sores on the cornea most often caused by a serious bacterial or viral infection. Uveitis: Inflammation of the uvea, which includes the iris, ciliary body, and choroid. The cause is most often not known. It may be related to an autoimmune disorder, infection, or exposure to toxins. The type of uveitis that causes the worst red eye is called iritis, in which only the iris is inflamed Homoeopathic medicine EUPHRASIA 30 ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 2 drops direct on tongue every 2-3 hrly CINERARIA /EUPHRASIA EYEDROPS ( SBL ) pour into eyes 1-2 drops 3 times daily

My 5 year kid got heavy redness in his left eye. The eye was swollen and tears were coming slightly. The doctor suggested microscopic scraping citing holy color entering in the eyes. He was normal all these days post holy. Not sure whether the diagnosis is correct. Should we go for the treatment suggested as it looks rather painful from what he described

Phaco Development Program, Fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology, DNB Ophtalmology, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Mysore
If there are any particles stuck to the cornea then the irritation will persist until it is removed. And holi colours these days have many chemicals which is not good for the eye. A definitive answer is difficult to give without examining the child. I suggest to trust your doctor if he has a good reputation.

I am suffering from dry cough for the last two weeks and I have red eye for three days. What should I do?

MD in Ophthalmology, MBBS

Coughing per se can cause red eyes and needs no treatment. Red eyes can also be part of viral upper respiratory tract infection that also resolves spontaneously. Just wash eyes with cold water, whiling keeping them shut.
