I had left eye irritation for 20 days and had blurred vision in the same. So I consulted an ophthalmologist and after check up and he told me that it may be because of some allergy and prescribed me with two eye drops for one week. Also he said that I have minus 0.75 power. It has been a week and now I feel better with the irritation. But sometimes I feel like my left eye gives blurred vision and sometimes like it gives normal. What is the reason? What is the solution?

I use contact lenses fr daily use and by the evening the white portion of an eye goes reddish please give some tips.

I use contact lenses fr daily use and by the evening the white portion of an eye goes reddish please give some tips.
The symptoms described by you indicate that you are suffering from eye allergy due to contact lens use. It would be a good idea to discontinue the contact lens use at least for sometime. Contact lens induced hypersensitivity/ allergy has multiple causes associated with it. To enumerate a few: (1) it may be caused due to over wear (use for more than 6-7 hours at a stretch) (2) overnight wear of contact lens. (3) improper hygiene of the contact lens. If handled with dirty hands, contact lens associated infection/ allergy may occur. Thus, hands must be thoroughly washed before handling contact lens. (4) likewise, the contact lens cleaning solution, if not handled properly, may cause major eye problems. It should not be used beyond its expiry date. Nor should it be over used (using the same fluid for 2-3 days!) now, the first thing you should start with is discontinue the contact lens usage. Subsequently, just go through the points mentioned by me. If you match any of the mentioned points, rectify them. You might want to consider changing the contact lens pair that you are currently using and start with a fresh pair.

The first timers while using contact lens do face such problems as they are not used to it.Slowly as your eyes are used to contact lens,all will be normal for your eyes.Along with contact lens start using TEARPLUS EYE DROPS.

Hello, - Try to rest your eyes if redness is due to fatigue or eye strain. No other treatment is needed. - Wash your hands, hold clean water in your hand, keep your eyes closer to the water and dip the eyes by blinking the eyelids frequently in the held water in hand. Repeat it for 3-4 times again. - Avoid watching T. V. Working on computer or mobile, reading or frequently keep blinking your eyes to avoid dryness.

Does intermittent exotropia/esotropia resolved itself without any treatment? In adulthood?
It needs to be regularly checked by the doctor (eye specialist) so that the correct diagnosis is arrived at and corrective actions can be taken at the right time. Depending on the type and cause the treatment differs (exercises, eye glasses and surgery etc ). So its better to get proper guidance by approaching an eye clinic or hospital (govt /private hospital ). If proper treatment is not begun then more complications may arise later.

Hi, I am suffering from Uveitis since last 10 years. I went to AIIMS, PGI Chandigarh but did not find any cure. Currently taking steroids injection under supervision of care Noida.

Uveitis can be a tricky eye condition to treat.. finding the underlying cause sometimes help choose the correct immunosuppresants. But Inspite of extensive testing, the underlying disease may be difficult to diagnose. It may become apparent in some years time. Macular edema is a result of chronic inflammation in the eye. For uveitis, long term immunosuppression becomes a necessity...u will need to choose one Inspite of he side effects. Sometimes intra or para ocular steroid injections are given. But these will treat only the eye and not the systemic effects the disease may or may not be having on different organs of ur body. The retina n uvea team at Icare is very competent...trust their judgement and continue treatment there.

Easy Remedies to Maintain your Eyesight

Problems in vision are a common occurrence these days; various factors such as spending a lot of time looking at smartphones and computers are a major cause of these problems. There are various natural remedies which can help you improve your eyesight, they are:

  • Wash, especially after coming back from outside, your eyes regularly: Washing your eyes regularly with water helps in clearing out debris from the eyes and relaxing the eye muscles. 
  • Eat Healthy: Eating a healthy diet that has lots of fruits and vegetables are good for the eyes as they contain important nutrients such as vitamin A. You should include foods such as carrots, fish oil, cabbage and eggs in your diet. 
    • Carrots: Carrots are a good source of phosphorus, calcium, vitamin A and iron which are very good for your eyesight. You may consume carrot in the form of juices or salads. 
    • Almonds and other nuts:Nuts such as almonds and walnuts are rich in antioxidants which are beneficial for the eyes. 
  • Walk barefoot: Walking barefoot on green grass is therapeutic for your eyes as it enhances your eye power. It is recommended you walk early in the morning to get maximum benefits.
  • Eye exercises: You should do various eye exercise to improve your eyesight as these exercises help in rejuvenating muscles of the eye. The muscles in the eye are strengthened which leads to better vision.
  • Triphala remedy: This is a treatment that combines three herbal fruits which treat various eye disorders, eye weaknesses and hair problems. Triphala helps in eliminating toxins from your body and make your eyes healthy.
  • Reduce screen time: Avoid extra working hours on computers and mobiles as far as possible. Especially playing video games. This can save you from computer vision syndrome. 
  • Avoid frequent rubbing of eyes: This habit can lead to frequent infections and shedding of eyelashes . Also, this is one of the causes of dark circles. 
  • Proper sleep: Importance of proper rest to the eyes cannot be denied and is equally important in general wellbeing.

Lastly, if anything is bothering your eyes seek help immediately before the problem increases.

MBBS, DOMS
Ophthalmologist, Hyderabad
Depending on the actual amount of refractive error (eg -2.00, etc), and suitability of your eyes (determined by topography and pachymetry tests), it can be corrected by Lasers (LASIK, etc) or implantable lenses (ICL). Then one can become spectacle independent.

Dear lybrate-user it seems there is some confusion in understanding the treatment modality. Yes if there is an advance stage od diabetic retinopathy then injection in th eye will help but its a repeated process where the patient will require multiple injection there is chance the patient may develop cataract early which can be removed later and anyway he is diabetic so chances of developing / progression of cataract are always there.

I have a yellowish colour inside my eyes and having a swear pain? So Please tell me what can I do for that.
Yellow Eyes since one year indicates many problems and some of the important ones are 1. Liver diseases such as jaundice, hepatitis and cirrhosis 2.Pterygium is a growth on the cornea (the clear front window of the eye) and the conjunctiva , the thin, filmy membrane that covers the white part of your eye (sclera). This growth is noncancerous and is fairly common. It is a triangular-shaped growth of fleshy tissue on the white of the eye that eventually extends over the cornea. This growth may remain small or grow large enough to interfere with vision. A pterygium can often develop from a pinguecula. Some pterygia may become red and swollen on occasion, and some may become large or thick, making you feel like you have something in your eye. If a pterygium is large enough, it can actually affect the shape of the cornea’s surface, leading to astigmatism. 3.Pinguecula is also a growth on the cornea (the clear front window of the eye) and the conjunctiva , the thin, filmy membrane that covers the white part of your eye (sclera).This is Non-Cancerous. It is a yellowish patch or bump on the conjunctiva, near the cornea. It most often appears on the side of the eye closest to the nose. It is a change in the normal tissue that results in a deposit of protein, fat and/or calcium. It is similar to a callus on the skin It is not entirely clear what causes pterygia and pinguecula to develop. Ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun is believed to be a factor in the development of these growths. Other factors believed to cause pterygia and pingueculae are dry eye and environmental elements such as wind and dust. My suggestion for you is to 1.Go for Blood tests empty stomach for CBC,THYROID PROFILE,LIPID PROFILE,LFT 2.Consult an Eye Specialist for a physical examination to rule out Pterygium and Pinguecula
