Hello lybrate-user. People with weak retina should follow a few precautions: (1) as mentioned by your doctor, it would be good not to lift heavy weights. (2) avoid sports involving balls that would pose a chance of injury to the eye. (eq. Soccer, basketball, rugby, etc.) (3) avoid exercises that require you to perform the valsalva manouvre (this involves trying to exhale with nose and mouth closed simultaneously. Certain pranayams and yogasan have these exercises. (4) you should undergo a 6 monthly / yearly retina examination. (5) in case you have symptoms of flashes of light or floaters in front of the eyes, it would be a better idea to get an immediate retina evaluation done. (6) eat a healthy antioxidant rich diet. Let me enumerate the diet necessary for healthy eyes. (a) green leafy vegetables including spinach, sprouts, cabbage, beetroot. (b) fruits-blue-berries, black-berries, strawberries, raspberries, kiwi fruit, grapes, pineapple, pomegranate, grapes, guava. (c) dry-fruits: almonds, walnuts, apricots, dates. (d) cereals: oats, barley, millets. (e) drink a cup of green tea daily. (f) drink a glass of milk daily. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care-regards.

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. You can go for contact lens or refractive surgery if you satisfy d eligibility criteria after detailed refraction, stability of error and if your corneal conditions satisfy.

Glaucoma: 2nd leading cause of blindness in the world

Phaco Development Program, Fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology, DNB Ophtalmology, MBBS

Glaucoma: 2nd leading cause of blindness in the world
Glaucoma is a group of diseases that damage the eye's optic nerve and can result in vision loss and blindness. However, with early detection and treatment, you can often protect your eyes against serious vision loss.

At first, open-angle glaucoma has no symptoms. It causes no pain. Vision stays normal. Glaucoma can develop in one or both eyes. Without treatment, people with glaucoma will slowly lose their peripheral (side) vision. As glaucoma remains untreated, people may miss objects to the side and out of the corner of their eye. They seem to be looking through a tunnel. Over time, straight-ahead (central) vision may decrease until no vision remains.

There is no cure for glaucoma. Vision lost from the disease cannot be restored.

Immediate treatment for early-stage, open-angle glaucoma can delay progression of the disease. That's why early diagnosis is very important. Glaucoma treatments include medicines, laser trabeculoplasty, conventional surgery, or a combination of any of these. While these treatments may save remaining vision, they do not improve sight already lost from glaucoma.

If you are being treated for glaucoma, be sure to take your glaucoma medicine every day. See your eye care professional regularly. You also can help protect the vision of family members and friends. Encourage them to have a comprehensive dilated eye exam at least once every two years. Remember that lowering eye pressure in the early stages of glaucoma slows progression of the disease and helps save vision.

There is no direct medicine to improve eyesight but you can take plenty of green vegetables & seasonal fruits to keep your eyes healthy with yearly check up by retina specialist to explore retina fully because in power around-10 D you have to be under constant watch .At age of 23 years there is no chance of increase in myopic power because myopic power is stabilised by 22 yrs.

You should consult ophthmologist for refraction & if any you should use glass. Nausea with headache is also symptom of migraine so if there is no refractive error you should consult neurologist for migraine .You should also use lubricating eye drops 4-5 times daily because dryness is very common due to use of smartphone, computer & pollution, with regards.

I am having Age Related Macular Degeneration in my both eyes. It was detected in the year 2005. Now I developed Cataract also. My age is 72 Years . Need your suggestion

MBBS, MS - Ophthalmology

ARMS is retinal pathology so vision affected due to it cannot be restored but that due to cataract can be restored. Anyways you have to undergo cataract surgery even if it doesn't improve your vision because if it is untreated it can lead to complications like glaucoma, etc
