It seems you have developed computer vision syndrome due to working on system for long hours. Get your refraction done and wear spectacles eat green veggies. Carrots. Papayas, mangoes yellow fruits nuts butter. 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. Also try to blink your eyes properly while work. Use good tear substitutes like genteal 4 times a day. And anti glare screen for your system. You can go for lasik surgery depending upon the type severity and stability of refractive error, and condition of the cornea. Till then you must not undergo lasik. Use eyedrops genteal 3 times a nd zoneph 4 times a day.

My younger Son of 5 Years old have undergone squint surgery on right eye recently in Feb 2016. The squint was appeared in right eye (only) in Jan 2016 end week & that too instantly. Earlier to that, all was fine. To recover from the situation, our doctor suggested us to have squint muscle surgery which is common treatment.    Now after six month of surgery, the squint has appeared again on same eye. It is not constant squint on same eye & now sometimes both eyes looks fine, sometimes only right eye shows squint or sometimes his left eye shows squint. Our doctor says this is normal case & we will try to make it clear by using glasses & patching daily.    I am bit confused & don't know whether we are taking correct treatment or not? We are using glasses since yesterday as per Doctors advice & don't have complete result now.    Just wanted to have your expert opinion on below   1. Can squint reappear after surgery also?  2. Why the squint is not constant, sometime angle is more inward & sometimes in clean.  3. What tests I should do for my son to recover from this situation & do you feel that, we are taking correct treatment. 4. Do we need to visit Neurologist also? 5. Will my son can make confirmed outcome from this squint issue? 6. Is this is common or rare case?     Kindly support.

Squint can reappear after surgery. Eye alignment is variable. And depends upon eye muscle strenght, balance and coordination. During times of intense concentration n focus, sometimes the binocularity breaks and one eye will squint. Also, when sick or tired, the eye muscle also get fatigued readily, that's when the squint may also become evident. Sometimes following squint surgery, some vision therapy exercises are recommended to build on eye muscle strength and coordination. For the glasses power, doctor may need to under/ over or give full correction depending on a detailed squint examination n impact on squint surgery. I don't think you need to do any tests or visit a neurologist, but the judgement will remain with the treating doctor. I strongly suggest you discuss your apprehensions with the treating doctor. Squint and vision development in an ongoing process, with many factors contributing to outcome. There will never be any confirmation. Orthophoria or no squint is a rare phenomena. So have a reasonable expectation. All the best.

I have burning sensation in my eyes and eyes turn red color. Sometimes I can feel something is pricking inside my eyes. I contacted an eye specialist. They said its mainly due to dust allergies and gave some eye drops. Whenever I go outside I used to wear glasses. But still I can feel all those above mentioned problems, especially when I use laptops (min 8 hours) at work and mobile phone at home. I noticed all these to doctor but still they say nothing to worry its dust infection. What should I do now? Please help me.

You can think of lasik laser surgery. Lasik is a simple laser procedure which changes the shape of the cornea so that the light rays fall on the retina properly. It is a painless procedure. It is a day care procedure does not require any injections, does not require admission, you can simply resume your duties in 2 days. Cost varies from centre to centre. Side effects are usually limited to dryness of eyes for few months. We can do lasik anytime after age of 18 years. You need to undergo proper prelasik checkup to decide whether lasik is safe for you or not.

Pain is unusual in eyes. You need to make sure that vision is not affected. You need to visit eye surgeon to rule out any vision threatening problem.

Dip cotton pads in this mixture and place on the eyes for 20 minutes, this well help in reducing the swelling around the eyes. 4. Cucumber relief: Cucumbers are a fantastic natural remedy to get rid of under eye puffiness. Take 2 slices of fresh refrigerated cucumber and place it on your eyes for 25 minutes.

Homoeopathic treatment UNDER EYE CREAM ( BAKSON) Apply at night under the eye in circular fashion GLOWCARE DROPS ( LORDS) 20 drops in 20 ml freh water 3 times daily Take a good Iron rich diet likeApple,Pomegranate,Spinach nd all other green vegetables 2 glass milk daily 6-8 glass extra water daily Try to have a sound sleep HOME REMEDIES Slice up a papaya. Papaya fruit contains the enzyme papain. Papain helps exfoliate the skin, making way for new skin cells to emerge. Papaya also contains Vitamin C and Vitamin E, so it's a dark spot fading superstar. Papain is most concentrated while the papaya is still green, but you can use riper fruit as well. Peel and remove the seeds from a papaya, and try one of the following treatments: 1. Slice a piece off of the papaya, and lay or hold it on the dark spots that you want to get rid of. Hold it there for 20-30 minutes. Repeat twice a day for best results. 2.Make a papaya facial mask. Cut the papaya into chunks, then use a blender or food processor to blend the fruit into a smooth paste. Apply the mask to your face and neck. Leave it on for about 30 minutes, then rinse well.

Hi, Since you mentioned allergic bronchitis, associated eye allergies also could present the way you mentioned. Alternatively, it could be a dry eye problem. A complete eye evaluation by an ophthalmologist could solve your problem.

So far I know there is no medicine in allopath or ayurveda which can reduce myopic power, myopic power in female increases upto 19 yrs& if you are above 19 yrs, there is no chance of increase in myopic power, your myopic power is very less & I will never advise you to go for LASIK, there is lots of advantage in later life with less myopic power which are not told to the patient who undergo for lasik, if you don't want to wear glass you may go for contact lens.

Yes you can plan lasik surgery. You need to undergo pre lasik workup which will include corneal topography. If your corneal thickness is fine and topography is normal, then you can safely go for lasik. Lasik has much predictable results with the current advanced technology. Side effects include dryness and glare for few months which eventually subsides.
