How to reduce number of eyes?How to get rid of specs?

FICO, Specialist in Cataract,Cornea and refractive surgeries , MD - Ophthalmology
Ophthalmologist,
Medical treatment has no proven role in improving weak eye sight. Also food has not a major role in improving vision Eating green leafy vegetables ,fresh fruits and fish may keep the eyes healthy. Normally the number gets stabilised by 18 yrs of age. After 18 yrs if number is stable, depending upon your corneal thickness you can undergo laser eye surgery if thickness is good. Or ICL which is implantable collamer lenses. Presently you can use soft contact lenses , with strict aseptic precautions.

Hello there is only one treatment for cataract and that is surgery. If you are comfortable with glasses then you can wait for surgery else surgery is required.

Your red eye can be due to alcoholafter effects or High BP.If you have left the hbit of taking alcohol preently and if your BP is normal,then nothing to worry about,slowly your eyes will be normal as due to alcohol intake ,the blood vessels insside your eyes have expanded giving red appearance to your eyes.

I dont have retina in my left eye since birth . Is there any treatment for curing the blindness?

MBBS, DOMS
Ophthalmologist, Hyderabad
As of now, there is no treatment for this condition. However, research is going on for bio-engineered artificial retina to be surgically implanted. Since these are still in research status, they are not commercially available. If you wish, you can volunteer in such research programs at major eye institutes. LV Prasad Eye Institute at Hyderabad is an example. You will first need to get evaluated to know if you are eligible for the same.

1. Does having diabetes mean that I am at higher risk for other medical problems? 2. Should I start seeing other doctors regularly, such as an eye doctor? 3. How often should I test my blood sugar, and what should I do if it is too high or too low? 4. Are there any new medications that I could use to help manage my diabetes? 5. Does diabetes mean I have to stop eating the foods I like best? 6. How can exercise make a difference in my diabetes? 7. If I'm overweight, how many pounds do I have to lose to make a difference in my health? 8. Are my children at increased risk for the disease? 9. What is the importance of diet in diabetes? 10.

Mr. Lybrate-user, your questions make a big list, answering each of them in detail will be too much for me. Still I will clarify certain points. 1) having diabetes does make a person susceptible to many other diseases like cardiac problems, hypertension, kidney diseases, nervous system problems and eyes. 2) a person with diabetes has to get his or her eyes examined once a year for retinal involvement plus any other problem. 3) blood sugar testing should be more often initially (daily 2 or 3 times). Later when condition is stabilised, once in 2 - 3 days, later once a week. Once if the sugar is in good control even once in 15 days is ok. Plus you have to check hba1c% every 3 to 6 months. 4) there are many new medications available now, depends on what treatment is currently on. 5) total dietary intake has to be restricted to a specific number of calories per day, depending upon ideal body weight, exercise and sugar level. Sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods and pastries to be avoided. 6) exercise increases glucose utilisation, reduces insulin resistance, burns calories, helps reduce weight, improves fitness and well being. 7) your bmi should be <23 kg/m2.8) t2 dm is a familial disease, children do get it but it is a preventable condition. 9) diet is important because that is the source for glucose, fat and proteins other nutrients. Excess glucose can aggravate diabetes. 10) medication is necessary on all days till one lives.

Take frequent breaks while studying and dip a handkerchief in cold water and keep it over closed eyes for 2 minutes during breaks, you will feel better. Also get your eyes checked for any spectacle number.

Visual gain depends on where, how n how much of the retina has been damaged. If u have had some inflammation our 8n fiction which has healed and left some scarring in retina .it usually will not progress. Some retinal degeneration are stationary n some progressive to blindness. Off u have had retinal detachment, with central retina off...The visual prognosis is guarded with risk of long term complication. .but benefit in preserving some functional vision in the eye.

There is no medication or food for improving eyesight or to get rid of glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser as your age is now 18 years so your number will not increase now whether you wear glasses or not as number becomes stable at age of 18-20 yrs. Having said that I advise you to eat balanced diet including green vegetables and seasonal fruits for keeping eyes and body healthy. As you are not comfortable with contact lens then go for lasik. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

Dear lybrate user, red eyes 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

Please get your both eyes dilated retinal examination done. Theses black spots are called as floaters and r markers of vitroretinal pathology. So it is must to identify the cause for them and d treatment laser done.
