From last two three days aim not able to sleep because of which my eyes are red please help me out.
Hi, Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety. In children and teens, sleep also helps support growth and development. Management: Here are five tips everyone can use to help improve the quality of their sleep: Keep your bedroom cool and dark Put away/turn off all electronic devices while preparing for bedtime Stick to a regular bedtime and wake time every day, even on weekends Stop drinking caffeine by the early afternoon and avoid large late-night meals Skip the late-afternoon nap, as it can make it harder to sleep at bedtime Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension. Do regular exercise. Go for a brisk walk in the morning. Medication: Take Schwabe's Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos./ once daily at night for 1month.

MBBS, DOMS

Eye irritation could be due to dust allergy or dry eyes. Try simple soothing eye drops such as nefacool or opticool and see if you get relief. If not, better go for a complete eye evaluation.

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

conjunctivitis takes a week to 10 days to go and if its viral it can take a little long to go. antibiotics is the only solution for it rest other drops u can use for reducing ur symptoms to some extent like refresh tears for soothing sensation and mezol eye drops for reducing the redness.

I dont have retina in my left eye since birth . Is there any treatment for curing the blindness?

MBBS, DOMS
Ophthalmologist, Hyderabad
As of now, there is no treatment for this condition. However, research is going on for bio-engineered artificial retina to be surgically implanted. Since these are still in research status, they are not commercially available. If you wish, you can volunteer in such research programs at major eye institutes. LV Prasad Eye Institute at Hyderabad is an example. You will first need to get evaluated to know if you are eligible for the same.

Are You a Good Candidate for LASIK?

Are You a Good Candidate for LASIK?

Are You a Good Candidate for LASIK?

First and foremost you should dislike the options of spectacles and contact lenses. It then means that you are well motivated.

Your age should be above 18 years and your spectacle power should be stable over past one year. Lasik works well for powers from about -10.0 to +6.0 including cylindrical power.

Certain tests will done to confirm you have suitable corneal curvature (topography), and that you have adequate corneal thickness (pachymetry)
 
You should have realistic expectations from the procedure this means you should expect significantly reduced dependence on spectacles and not an exact zero power. 

If you satisfy above criteria and clear a routine eye examination you should be an ideal candidate for lasik!

I am 59 years old and have been operated twice for allergic nasal polyps (1985 and 1993). Now I have again nasal block due to polyps and have to use medicines. Also I have cataract right eye (in very early stage). Is there any effective treatment for these conditions in ayurveda. Thank you.

Allergic nasal polyps are known for recurrence if proper precautions and postop care are not taken. Continous steroid spray, suction cleaning and steam inhalation prevents recurrence.
