Hello, follow the below tips:- exercises for eyes: warm your eyes. Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Repeat this three times. Roll your eyes. Start by looking up and then slowly circle 10 times clockwise and 10 times counterclockwise. Focus. Hold a pen at arm's length, focus your eyes on it, and slowly bring the pen closer until it's about 6 inches away from your nose. Then slowly move it back, keeping your eyes focused on the pen, 10 times in all. Massage your temples. Using your thumb knuckles, massage your temples in small circles, 20 times in one direction and 20 in the other. Repeat the same actions above the mid-point of the eyebrows at the forehead, then below the eyes on both sides of the bridge of the nose. Take a mini-nap. Put your head back, close your eyes, and relax for 3 minutes. Insufficient sleep may weaken your vision, so shoot for 8 hours of sound sleep a night. Rest your eyes 10 minutes for every 50 minutes spent reading or in front of the computer. If your eyes feel overly tired, lie down and place cooling cucumber slices over your eyelids. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine which will help you in preventing rather reducing the power of your eyes. Take physostigma 6/ thrice daily for 1 month. Use cmd2 eye drop, 2 drop in each eye twice daily. Thereafter, revert back for further guidance.

I was applying for an exam. The criteria for vision is 6/6. What does it mean? How much minus- point is that?

6/6 means fully normal vision. Some people don't need glasses, minus or plus, and some do need correction. The implication for job purpose, especially for police or military service, is 6/6 (full vision) without the need for any correction by spectacles or any means.

I am 60 yrs old lady yesterday while colouring my hair a little amount entered in my right eye even though I have cleaned with water immediately still pain is persisting. What I should do?

MBBS, DOMS
Ophthalmologist, Hyderabad
If the amount is very little, and if it has not involved your cornea (the central" black" of the eye), then some lubricating eye drops such Zyaqua or Irivisc or Refresh, may help. However, if the pain is significant, it is safer to get your eyes examined by an ophthalmologist and get the appropriate treatment.

Hi, do regular exercise. Stop eating junk and processed food. Take 2 banana with warm milk in the morning and evening. Eat soaked dry grapes or dates soaked in warm milk overnight. Include protein rich food in your diet like soyabean, sattu with milk, eggs, sprouts, milk and milk products, combination of cereals and pulses, take healthy and heavy breakfast. No drink before and with meals. Take frequent meals instead of 3 big meals. You can consult me privately online on lybrate i" ll give you diet chart. Ok.

Excessive times spend on laptop/tv/ mobile could lead to computer vision syndrome. It is the result of long prolonged hours of focusing the eyes on a computer screen or any other display device. The symptoms include? headache and neck pain? blurred vision? eye strain? dry eyes along with redness the situation can further be aggravated by poor lighting environment. The way to reduce the symptom is to? work under adequate lighting? blink a lot? cold compresses? use lubricating eye drops.

I think simple lubricating eye drops would give you much needed relief, but get your eyes examined by your eye doctor for better management of the problem.

Hello. There is no medication or food for improving eye sight or to get rid of glasses. Get your vision tested and wear glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser as your age is now 27 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.

both are pretty safe . you can wear contact lens but if you dont want to then lasik is good option Lasik is a simple laser procedure which changes the shape of the cornea so that the light rays fall on the retina properly. It is a painless procedure. It is a day care procedure does not require any injections, does not require admission, you can simply resume your duties in 2 days. Cost varies from centre to centre. Side effects are usually limited to dryness of eyes for few months. We can do lasik anytime after age of 18 years. You need to undergo proper prelasik checkup to decide whether lasik is safe for you or not

I have shot tightness and red eye and water flow is it a problem glasses is a solution what is your opinion.

I have shot tightness and red eye and  water flow is it a problem glasses is a solution what is your opinion.
Dear red eye has many causes. You have to see if it is associated with blurring of vision, pain, discharge and other complaints. But commonly its allergic or infective in origin ie allergic or infective conjunctivitis. Which has simple treatment protocol. But still its wise to see an ophthalmologist for a thorough slit lamp examination to rule out other differentials for red eye. There r many causes of watering eyes. Is yours associated with redness? and mild pain then its probably infective in origin. If its associated with headache with blurry vision den get your refraction done and vision tested. If its watery or ropy discharge with redness its probably allergic in nature. So I wd suggest you to see a doctor. Put ed cmc four times a day.

could be due to allergy allergy can be controlled easily using eye drops. But there are many eye drops and specific eye drops can only be prescribed after seeing the eye clinically as treatment depends on severity. also dip a handkerchief in little cold water and keep over closed eyes.. you will feel better

My friend is having a problem with her eye. During exams or while using laptops for a long time a swelling similar to a pimple appears on the eyelid and it gradually becomes big. She went to some doctors and had some ointment and antibiotics. But still she is not fully cured. Sometime mucus formation is also there inside.

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

Dear lybrate-user, squint will not cause headache directly but it is only a cosmetic issue of squint. Cause of headache will be refractive errors and computer vision syndrome. You need to wash /splash water in your eyes every 2-4 hourly and blink your eyes. You can put lubricating eye drops for eye pain. Regs.
