I want a details for laser surgery for eyes is there any age limit what are the instructions we take before laser surgery.

FPRS, DNB Ophtalmology
Ophthalmologist, Pune
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

I went to eye specialist. He diagnosed it as refractive error. And gave me -.25 for left eye and -.75 for right eye. How can I be sure it is not because of prodep.

Hello A. Prodep does not induce refractive error B. Prescribed power is very small. You can avoid using Glasses.

I am a student of 25 years age. I am having left ocular pain for last two days, the pain (no congestion, foreign body sensation, photophobia) being increased on upward and medial gaze accompanied by frontal headache. It is relieved by nsaids and sleep. I also have myopia of left eye (corrected by -1. 75 spherical) and vision of right eye is emmetropic. No positive family history for ocular disorder except refractive error.

You have not mentioned your visual acuity of right eye, if it is 6/6 then get your e. N. T. Check Up done for sinusitis, or it may be because of convergence deficiency which is to be checked by an eye specialist.

I am a engineering student. Because of my health problems such as tears are coming automatically from my eyes when I was reading something or driving bike. And also my eyes become red in morning time so what can I do?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
Watering and redness of eyes can be due to many reasons and the main reasons are------------ 1. Eye allergy due to dust, pollution, infection--------------- 2. Weak eyesight------------ 3. Continuous watching tv, mobile, computor in dim light---------- 4. Any eye injury------------- 5. Lack of sleep------- 6. Continuous headache------------ 7. Hypertension.--------------- so, my suggestion for you is to visit a local doctor for an eye check up as a final examination can only be made after physical examination.-------------------till then start using following homoeopathic medicine for 5 days---------- 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--------------------- report after 5 days----------------------

No way except controlling blood sugar either with medicine or insulin otherwise you are going to cataract & diabetic retinopathy in eye ,kidney involvement leading to kidney failure & cardiac problem.Now you have to take decision.

Actually I am suffering from my left eye pain since 3 years while I sleep deep. Why it is?

FPRS, DNB Ophtalmology
Ophthalmologist, Pune
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

I have shiver pain backbone continuously from 3 months. And eyes get red in every 1 hours. Please help me.

DOMS, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
Red eye has many causes. You have to see if it is associated with blurring of vision, pain, discharge and other complaints. But commonly its allergic or infective in origin ie allergic or infective conjunctivitis. Which has simple treatment protocol. But still its wise to see an ophthalmologist for a thorough slit lamp examination to rule out other differentials for acute red eye. For pain in backe, I advice refer to an orthopaedician and tests done like xray, vit d levels, calcium levels, bone densitometry and vit b12 levels.

I constantly keep thinking of getting rid of my spectacles. My family took me to psychiatrist and they have put me on OCD and anxiety medicine. Should I take it or just go for eye surgery as I am eligible for it.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Your family is interested in you. Probably they felt you are more worried about getting rid of specs than other serious signs of anxiety interfering in your studies. Please ask the psychiatrist what is the diagnosis. You are eligible to ask for it. It may be a body dysmorphic disorder or OCD or Anxiety disorder. If it is so, even after eye surgery, your other symptoms will not improve. Only expensive surgical cost. Please take the medicines prescribed by psychiatrist. Many medicines are given for many other illnesses. There are no OCD medicine - they are antidepressants and anxiolytics. Names and dose differs according to diagnosis. Your parents will take you for eye surgery, if your education. Improves and you have a good opinion of yourself.
