I am suffering from nose and eye allergy since 2 years. I take some medicine from an ENT specialist doctor, but it not cured my disease. The under wall of nose and cone of both eyes itches a lot. When I touch my nose lot of sneezing coming on that time. So can you please suggest me what should I do?

Hi, Am 21 years old. I have Hypermetropia from past 5-6 years. I continuously wear spectacles but now I want to get rid of this. Its so, irritating for me now, I don't swim , I can't go any adventurous place without my specs and many other things. Please help me how I could go far from specs. I heard about Lasik (laser) operation is it ok for me or what will be the charges if I go for the Lasik operation. Need a good suggestion. Please help me Respected Doctors.
Normally the eyes are the best friends. They blink together. They move together and always keep the visual axis parallel, how paradoxical it is that healthy eyes visual axis never meet but it is the eyes who make you meet the desired person in your life.
When visual axis is not parallel in any direction of gaze, we call it a squint
Squint can be congenital or acquired. Congenital squints are usually more difficult to treat. Acquired squint may be due to refractive error. They can be traumatic causing paralytic squint which is more difficult to treat.
If both eyes converge (turn inside), we call it convergent squint. If they diverge, we call it divergent squint.
The squint can be constant or inconstant (sometimes).
A squint patient has to be examined fully by a very competent ophthalmologist at the earliest opportunity. The doctor shall find out the type of squint, its degree, and its nature. Fundus has to be examined. Refraction has to be done. Convergent squint patients quite often have a hypermetropic refractive error and sometimes can be cured by spectacles and exercise. Myopic eyes most often have a divergent squint. In some patients, the squint is quite hidden (latent) and it appears occasionally when patient have a strong emotion or absent minded. Most often these squints are divergent.
Management of squint needs spectacles, exercise at home or at syn optophone machine in the hospital and if it does not respond, then a surgery by an expert.
The challenge in surgery shall depend on a degree of squint, an age of onset, type, and age of surgery. Ideal age of squint surgery is 5-10 years. More the age, unpredictable results. Simply drugs do not cure squint. Paralytic squint more challenging. Earliest the better
