It needs to be investigated. Investigations advised - hb, tlc, dlc, esr, sugar f & pp, uric acid, vit d3 urine r/e x ray of the affected part. Anyway you may try- sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick mattress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck back knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, inform. Consult an eye doctor also.

this is social phobia...Social phobia essentially involves painful symptoms of anxiety that occur in relation to particular social events. Common forms of social phobia have to do with anxiety around dating, or anxiety around public speaking, but there are many people who qualify for the diagnosis with a more general report of anxiety in diverse social interactions. I can’t know that this is your specific problem, but I can say that it’s something you might want to ask a psychologist or psychiatrist to consider when evaluating you for this difficulty. Your choice of visiting a psychologist or psychiatrist is significant in regard to the treatment for this problem. Social Phobia is very treatable in general, but a psychiatrist will most likely treat with anti-anxiety medications and a psychologist with Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Anxiety. In choosing between the two, I’d say the average person is better off with CBT as it has no side-effects, uses no drugs you could get addicted to, and tends to have a longer lasting effect when the therapy ends. Good luck.

I am female 26 year old. I am suffering from severe headache. I use smart phones a lot because of my works. So I got my eyes checked up, and said they were fine. Eye doctor told me to consult a neuro physician. I am scared and little confused. Can anyone please help me?

DNB Ophtalmology, MS - Ophthalmology, MBBS

A neuro physician ref is to ensure there is no neurological cause for headaches. And a neurophysician will been the best expert to diagnose what the cause is. Probably recommended due to severity of your symptoms. Would recommend you increase font size you use on phone. Put in reminder for 20-20-20 rule. Start palming 2-3 times daily. Use lubricating eyedrops. Do some neck muscle and back stretches 1-2 times daily. Will help improve your efficiency n comfort during high smartphone usage.

I get red eyes after taking a nap. I have no glasses and whenever I watch the tv or use my mobile phone I do wear the 0 no. Glasses. But still my eyes get red and tears come in my eyes a lot. What should I do for this.

So take frequent breaks while you are working every 20-25 mins take break to look away from tv screen blink more frequently' ac should not blow directly on your face. 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.

I have been getting pink bumpy and itchy rashes on my skin (legs, arms, face etc). I have consulted 3 doctors but I still have the problem. Bumps comes all of a sudden and vanishes after some time. I find my eyelids swollen one or the other day when I wake up. Eyelids swell after I go for threading too. Rashes are being noticed around the waistline if I wear a belt. One of the doctor told that it is food allergy and the other told it is due to water or climate change. I am facing this problem from 3 months. I am really worried. Please help me on this.

U have developed contact dermatitis .u vil need to take treatment for it.apply aqua soft cream twice daily over it for two weeks.do not massage it in.avoid cosmetics and face wash for the face.U definitely are allergic.allergy is not a one time affair,it's a lifelong affair.u vil need medications regularly.this is because ur body doesn't have the ability to counter a reaction on its own but medicines help normalise this level.so keep at it and don't give up on ur medicines.

Hello, my left eye started hurting last night. I thought it was a stye but I couldn't see anything though I did get that feeling. This morning I wake up, it's badly swollen and it hurts awfully. I'm sure there's a stye in the inner eyelid that's why I can't see it. Please suggest what I must do. I'm scared of doctors so I don't really wish to go to one. Appreciate your time and help. Please help me out.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
It seems from the history that you are having stye of the eyelid. Stye is because of infection of the glands of the eyelids. The treatment for stye is by use of antibiotics eye drops or eye ointments and anti-inflammatory drugs. The swelling of the eyelid is because of reactionary edema and will resolve with treatment for stye. Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and for prescription of drugs. Hope this information is helpful to you. Thank you With regards

Hello, Bloodshot eyes appear red because the vessels at the surface of the white portion of the eye become swollen. Vessels may swell due to: Eye dryness Too much sun exposure Dust or other particles in the eye Allergies Infection Injury Eye infections or inflammation can cause redness as well as possible itching, discharge, pain, or vision problems. Other causes of eye redness include Colds or allergies, Acute glaucoma, Corneal scratches: Injuries caused by sand, dust, or overuse of contact lenses. Sometimes, a bright red spot, called a subconjunctival hemorrhage, will appear on the white of the eye. This often happens after straining or coughing, which causes a broken blood vessel on the surface of the eye. Most often, there is no pain and your vision is normal. It is almost never a serious problem. Because the blood leaks into the conjunctiva, which is clear, you cannot wipe or rinse the blood away. Like a bruise, the red spot will go away within a week or two. Management: - Try to rest your eyes if redness is due to fatigue or eye strain. No other treatment is needed. - Wash your hands, hold clean water in your hand, keep your eyes closer to the water and dip the eyes by blinking the eyelids frequently in the held water in hand. Repeat it for 3-4 times again. - Avoid watching T. V. Working on computer or mobile, reading or frequently keep blinking your eyes to avoid dryness. Take frequent breaks in between. - In case there is itching, use a clean napkin or a tissue to wipe the tears and cleaning the eyelids gently. -Wear an UV-rays protected sunglasses while you are out in sun. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe’s Belladonna 30 and Euphrasia 30 - both thrice daily for 4 days. Use Euphrasia Eye drops twice daily. Revert back thereafter.

Planning for Cataract Surgery

MBBS, DOMS, MS - Ophthalmology, , Fellowship in phacoemusification
Ophthalmologist, Patna
Planning for Cataract Surgery

Planning for a cataract surgery in the family. Here are the must know and eye opening facts.


 

Common public is often sensitized by marketing executives to go for expensive lenses in hospitals without thinking whether patients actually needs them or not as the lens mrp is 2 to 10 times the actual cost price or patient is implanted a extremely low cost lens usually in name of free surgery in charitable hospital.


 

Lens is major factor which determines the cost and quality of cataract surgery and its price varies from Rs. 500 to Rs. 50000.


 

Another important factor is the expertise and experience of surgeon which is a major determinant of surgical outcome.


 

Charitable surgery by charitable hospital exists only where external implants are put in patients like eye, orthopedics etc and not in neurosurgery, ent, general surgery, plastic surgery where mostly removal of the diseased part is done or modification of the surgical site is done. Charitable surgery by eye hospital is supported by vision 2020 of who.


 

The chances of eye infection increases if your surgery is listed lower down as compared to the first surgery on that day.


 

Patients are advised to have their surgery listed as first or second case. With improving standards of ot and sterilization of instruments, the infection rates have decreased drastically but why take a chance.


 

Once there is an eye infection following cataract surgery, there is little hope of return of vision.


 

Patient is advised to choose his doctor and institution or hospital where he is getting the surgery done based on its doctor's past reputation and the reputation of institution and should not get lured by free surgery camps and unless he can't afford to pay, since infection following cataract surgery needs at least 48 hours to manifest and its risk is extremely high in eye camps despite taking various measures due to unavoidable circumstances. Its your eyes after all!


 

Now patient should be aware of various types of iol (intraocular lenses) and its benefit over other lenses.


 

Cataract is also called'motiyabin" in hindi. Phacoemusification also called phaco is the most common procedure done for its removal.


 

Here is a complete summary of type of lens implanted in cataract surgery and it's pros and cons.


 

Monofocal lens- here you will need glasses to look at the near objects after cataract surgery.


 

Accommodating monofocal lenses (crysta lens)-a newer option, accommodating monofocal lenses, can shift from near to far vision in response to movements of the ciliary muscles in your eye, similar to the natural lens in a younger eye. These lenses offer excellent distance and middle vision, but they aren't as reliable for near vision. Eye exercises can help you get used to them, but about half of people who receive them still end up needing reading glasses.


 

Toric lenses-these specialized monofocal lenses are designed for people with astigmatism. Toric lenses offer focused vision at a single distance and correct your astigmatism, so you might not need distance glasses after surgery.


 

Multifocal lenses-like the bifocal or progressive lenses used in glasses, multifocal lenses have different areas designed for distance, intermediate, and near vision. The brain and eye figure out which part of the lens to use. The main drawback of multifocal lenses is they can distort bright light, creating more glare and halos at night.


 

Aspheric lens-designed to improve contrast sensitivity and visual clarity under certain circumstances.


 

Monovision-this implant technique uses a monofocal lens with a different power in each eye so that you don’t have to use glasses for most of your daily activities. Your dominant eye is generally set for distance, and the other eye is set for near. Many people successfully use monovision with contact lenses. Successful monovision requires cataract surgery to each eye.


 

One should remember that all that glitter is not gold in this commercialized world


 

Doctor has done 10000 phaco surgery and 50000 eye surgeries since 1986 and has pioneered phaco surgery in 1995 in bihar and jharkhand and was second person to do this surgery in whole of east india.

Please check that you are not using a thick pillow while sleeping. As it may make a wrong posture which in turn can lead to various signs of pain in neck are shoulders, one of the best natural remedy to cure your problem is to start doing surya namaskar in morning.
