Hello lasik is very good option to get rid of glasses doctor will perform few tests (schirmer test, pentacam and fundus examination) and if all tests are normal then you can go for lasik surgery without fear. Success rate of lasik is over 96%. Side effects may vary from minimal like mild dryness, dalk, haloes, glare to severe like infection (very rare). Precaution include: a. Avoid face/head wash for 1 week b. Avoid swimming /water sports for 6 weeks c. Avoid eye make up for 6 weeks cost: depends on type of lasik which varies from 25000 for standard lasik to 1.10 lacs for smile lasik I hope this will help you regards.

Faint sight at your age, with same spectacle power for last two years, could be due to development of cataract. This is the commonest cause. However, there could be other causes as well. You will need to get a complete eye evaluation, called comprehensive eye check-up, with an ophthalmologist. If it is simple early cataract, a change in spectacles can help you, at least for several months. Otherwise, you may need cataract surgery.

Thank you.
So take frequent breaks while you are working every 20-25 mins take break to look away from screen blink more frequently' level of screen should be below the level of eyes ac should not blow directly on your face. Also get your eyes checked for any spectacle power.

Hello lybrate-user. Rheumatoid arthritis has been seen to be associated with an eye condition known as scleritis. This entity is characterized by eye redness associated with pain and inflammation of the coats of the eyeball (uveitis). There may/ may not occur associated reduction of the vision. Also, there may occur dryness of the eye which may vary in intensity. It would be a good idea to get your eyes checked in detail by an eye specialist in person. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care.

I usually face headache or sometimes my eyes also get red by getting in contact of water! What should I do.

I usually face headache or sometimes my eyes also get red by getting in contact of water! What should I do.
You most probably have an allergic disorder. Headache can be due to allergic sinusitis and eye pain due to allergic conjunctivitis. It is recommended you consult a pulmonologist and undergo an allergic workup in the interim you can use olopatadine 0.1% eye drops one drop twice daily to both eyes and tab montek one tablet daily morning use the drops and tablet even if you do not have any symptoms also for one month continuously.

While driving bike sometimes dust particles hits our eyes. Can it cause eyes problems?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
While driving bike sometimes dust particles hits our eyes. Can it cause eyes problems?
Hello, yes, it does. While riding bike only then the dust particles or pollution or blow of wind or else exposure to sunlight could be the reason for making the eyes dry which causes tears from eyes. Wear a branded goggles with uv-protection whenever you are out in the sun, also wear a hat helmet over it (which is mandatory for your head's protection as well as it covers eyes). Keep blinking your eyes frequently. Drink at least 10-12 glasses of water or even more than that in a day if you do have to travel in the sunlight for long hours. Medication: use euphrasia eye drops twice daily and have euphrasia 30/ twice a day for 1 week.

I have a red eye from three days and I don't get sleep from that pain. What can I do for that?

I have a red eye from three days and I don't get sleep from that pain. What can I do for that?
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 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

There are many reasons of pain in your eyes and few important ones are 1. Lack of sleep 2. Weak eye sight, conjunctivitis, allergy due to loss of sleep 3. Overuse of eyes while studying, computers. And esp. In improper light so visit an ophthalmologist to identify the cause of your eye pain and blinking as most of the time it signifies weak eyesight. You can use following homoeopathic eyedrops for general eye pain cineraria euphrasia eye drops.
