My mother had a cataract operation of one eye and after the operation the vision was become good. However now after one month she was feeling that something is in her eye and the vision is also become less. Doctor says it is a dryness and given drop. Pls advice is this dryness because the vision is also becoming less.
I am 25 years old and I want to go for laser eye treatment to remove my eye number. What should I do?
I have problem in my left eye, the size of the eyeball in my left eye is a much bigger than normal eyeball (28) and the doctor told me that the power of my lens will be 10d. Wearing glasses would cause a double image (because of so much power), so I need to wear eye contact lens of less power. I wanted to know that is there is a surgery or a laser operation to cure this?(I have myopia and the vision of my left right eye is normal).
Hello Dr. I'm 21 years old and recently i'am facing a problem with dry eyes and redness in both the eyes. please recommend some soft lubricating eye drops for my eyes.

I underwent a laser operation 15days ago. The operation was done, but still there is a blueness in my left eyes. Is it normal or should I consult my doctor. please help me. I m worried.
Eyes are the most important part of our lives. There are various branches of medicine, which treat different aspects of the eye. Chief among them are:
Ophthalmology deals with the structure, physiology and diseases of the eye. On the other hand, optometry is a vision care science, which involves the treatment and rectification of the visual system. Specialists emerging from these two schools of medicines are called Ophthalmologists and optometrists respectively. Though, they both deal with the corrective measures and examination of healthy eyes, there are crucial differences between them.
Some of those differences are listed below:
- Meaning: A specialist in surgical and medical eye problems, who performs operations in the eye is called an Ophthalmologist. On the other hand, an Optometrist is a specialist who has a degree in Doctor of Optometry (OD). He is not a doctor but a trained individual.
- Area of Specialization: Both these specialists have different areas of specialization. An Ophthalmologist specializes in only vision and eye care. He/she has the necessary training to perform operations on the eye. On the other hand, an Optometrist is not a doctor, but a specialist who is involved in diagnosis, management and treatment of vision changes. He/she has the license to perform eye exams and tests and can prescribe corrective lenses.
- Training: Both the specialists differ vastly in their training. An Ophthalmologist is trained to treat all eye problems and is equipped to perform operations. He/she undergoes four years of medical school and one year of internship in any hospital. Optometrists on the other hand, after three or more years in college have to undergo four years of training before receiving a doctor of Optometrist. (OD).
