Hello. There is no medication or food for improving eye sight 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 22 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. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

My eyes get tired due to computers. Please help what can I do?

Some people who have a minimal refractive error will often get away without wearing glasses, but when working on a computer screen or doing a lot of concentrated work, the small prescription can begin to cause symptoms and under these circumstances correcting the prescription with glasses can be helpful. An anti-reflection coating (ultraclear) is often advised to reduce the annoying reflections of light from the lens surfaces. If your eyes are fine and normal then there is no proven glasses that can be prescribed to help. However, some people find that wearing glasses with a tint that absorbs the blue spectrum of light makes vision more comfortable. They are usually tinted a yellow colour. A common problem when working on a screen for long periods is'dry eye. This is because concentrated work tends to reduce the blink reflex that replenishes the tears, and the dry atmosphere and lack of fresh air adds to the problem of insufficent tears. Allowing the cornea to become dry can cause irritation and blurred and variable vision. Use some lubricating eye drops like refresh tears, use them at least 4 times a day at least. You do need to look at every aspect of your work environment also. Use proper lighting, dont work in dim conditions should use table and chair. Your table should be of proper height so that you dont have to bend too much. Take rest after 30 mins for few mins, put the tear drops and work again. Do blink intermittently.

Dear lybrate user, if you are not having sex and are not masturbating, the semen that is produced in your body comes out while you are sleeping. This is a natural process, hence there is nothing to worry about the nightfall. If your depression is related to this, you need not worry. Otherwise please consult a counsellor for getting rid of your negative thoughts. Regarding your low hearing and problem with the vision in the right eye, you need to see ent specialist and an optholmologist (eye specialist). Take care.

Dark circles may be genetical, due to increased vascularity around eyes, low eyesight etc. Take a proper sleep, plenty of water, be regular in using your sunscreen and avoid excessive usage of mobile/laptop. Nutritious diet rich in antioxidants(green vegetables and fresh fruits) and avoidance of stress will help. An undereye cream can be given to you by looking at a picture of your condition .

Weak eye sight is not a disease and not caused due to deficiency of anything. It is just an error of refraction. When rays entering your eyes do not focus on the retina, we make them focus with the help of glasses or contact lenses. So just eat normal healthy diet and continue wearing your spectacles.

Blackish or grayish floating images are generally called floaters and are not cause of concern. But you should get your eyes examined by a retina specialist to rule out any abnormality.

Dear in my opinion you need complete eye checkup specially for assessment of squint. As there are many causes for squint. After identifying the cause management and treatment differs accordingly. In time meantime if you can share your recent and old pics (one close up and other normal) showing squint. This will help me in assessing your condition better and advise accordingly.

I got new specs but the moment I wore them there is a stress on my eyes. Can you tell me what can be the cause for it. Power are right as prescribed?
