Hi. For avoiding dryness of eyes, avoid excessive use of tablets, laptops, smart phones (while using any of them keep blinking the eyes frequently and take small frequent brakes after every 45min to 1 hr.), keep yourself well hydrated, take more of vitamin A rich food and vegetables like Green leafy vegetables, yellow & orange vegetables, carrots, sweet potatoes, red pepper, whole milk, eggs, liver, fish oils, mangoes, tomato, fruits, some vegetable oils. Medication: Take homoeopathic eye drops - Euphrasia/ twice a day daily.

Dispelling Myths About LASIK!

Dispelling Myths About LASIK!

One of the most cutting edge eye procedures which has been very successful in practice and has been loved by millions of patients is LASIK. LASIK is a form of eye surgery performed with the help of a precise laser and is very effective in correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness as well as astigmatism (imperfections with the shape of the cornea). With any such procedure, there are bound to be myths which arise out of misconceptions. Some of those myths as well as the advantages of LASIK have ben enumerated below.

Myth # 1 – Lasik can only be performed up to a certain age
Many people think that LASIK cannot be performed on people of advanced age. This is a misconception as LASIK has been performed on people above 90 as well. There are some considerations however, such as the health of the person and the condition of the eyes. If there are no medical objections, then LASIK can be performed regardless of the age of the person. Doctors also tend to wait till young adulthood (around 18-20 years of age) before performing LASIK. However, LASIK procedures have been performed on young children with severe vision problems as well.

Myth # 2 – The technology behind LASIK is too new and thus not yet perfected
This is yet another commonly propagated myth about LASIK. The technology for this procedure has been around for quite some time and has ben performed with increasing regularity since the 1980s. There have been multiple long term studies done on people who underwent LASIK surgery and almost all of them have had favorable results both in the short term as well as the long term. It is a properly established field and means of treatment within ophthalmology and is subject to the same stringent standards testing as other treatments within the field of medicine.

Myth # 3 – LASIK can cause many complications such as dry eyes and night glares
Any surgical procedure has a certain chance of complications occurring. However, LASIK tends to have very low occurrences of complications. What many people tend to confuse complications with is the normal healing procedure. Dry eyes and night glares usually occur after the first few weeks of the procedure and is part of the healing process of the body. It usually tends to go way with the first few months itself.

Myth # 4 – Contact lenses are better than LASIK
While contact lenses do serve a purpose in correcting vision, they can often contribute to eye infections as well as irritations and headaches. Also contact lenses need to be changed every few weeks or so. LASIK surgery eliminates all of these hassles and you can have perfectly clear vision without having to worry about all the problems that contact lenses bring with them.

Myth # 5 – The LASIK procedure is painful
No other myth is farther from the truth. In this procedure, the surgeon creates a thin flap like structure out of the tissue within the cornea with the help of a laser. This layer is then used to reshape the cornea and thus correct vision problems. Antiseptic and numbing eye drops are used when performing this surgery which results in minimal discomfort that only stays during the initial stages. Consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Contact lens requires a lot of care and are expensive stuff.Moreover you must have to be very careful in placing and taking out contact lens from eyes.For those person who are into field jobs or drive 2 wheelers,contact lens are not recommended as dust particles can damage lens thus damaging eyes.But now a days contact lens is a common practise and if you can handle it with care then you can opt for lenses but always wear good quality daily wear disposable contact lenss of a good company like PURE VISION.

I am a student and when i am studying for 15 or 20 mins fall the tears from my eyes what should I do?

I am a student and when i am studying for 15 or 20 mins fall the tears from my eyes what should 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. 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.

Hello lybrate-user. Follow the following measures. Wash your eyes thoroughly with water. Continuously for 15 minutes.(1) avoid rubbing your eyes with fingers/ handkerchief/ shirt/ dupatta/ cloth, etc. (2) use a lubricant eye drop every 2 hours for at least 5 days. Then you could reduce the frequency to 5 times in a day.(3) if the irritation persists, you should get your eyes checked with an eye specialist in person.

My eye and around that area is looking dull. So it always keep my face looks dull.

My eye and around that area is looking dull. So it always keep my face looks dull.
Hi, the skin around the eyes is ten times thinner and sensitive than the skin on the face. As we age, skin loses its elasticity and becomes even thinner due to a breakdown of collagen. This can be further aggravated by sun exposure, smoking, and other environmental exposures. The points which are important in maintaining healthy skin around the eyes: -drink plenty of water. Water plays a crucial role maintaining the elasticity of skin. -avoid smoking cigarettes. Nicotine constricts blood vessels in the face and under the eyes. Constricted vessels also make it difficult for nutrients to be absorbed, which leads to a breakdown of collagen. -stay out of the sun. Overexposure to ultraviolet rays causes melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells, to mature abnormally. This results in age spots and uneven pigmentation. Uv rays are responsible for up to 90% of aging and can add several years to your appearance. -wear sunglasses to avoid squinting and protection from uv-rays. -get plenty of rest. Fatigue can cause skin to look pale and gaunt. -limit alcohol intake. Excessive drinking can cause dehydration, so limit yourself to a glass or two of wine every week -use cotton balls when removing makeup to avoid unnecessary tugging and pulling on the delicate tissue. -use a quality professionally recommended skin care product for the area around the eyes. Apply homoeopathic under-eye cream by bakson twice a day daily.

Colour vision defect is most commonly a congenital disease. As such there is no solution for it. You can probably get a certificate stating this disability from a bmc hospital which can help you in some form of employment.

What is function of retina in the human eye and what is cornea also how can we make better our eye?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)

What is function of retina in the human eye and what is cornea also how can we make better our eye?
The Retina is located at the back of the eye and this part of the eye contains multiple layers of sensory tissue. The retina has millions of photosensitive cells known as photoreceptors which work to capture and convert light rays into electric signals. These signals then travel to the brain through the optic nerve where they are converted into the images we see. The cornea is a clear covering over the surface portion of the eye. It is very strong and durable and helps protect the eye from invasive dust, germs and foreign matter. The cornea also focuses images and light onto the retina, which then begins translating them to vision for transmission to the brain through the optical nerve. In total, the cornea accounts for around 65 to 75 percent of the eye's focusing ability. • TIPS FOR CARE OF OUR EYES • 1. Eat for Good Vision • 2. Quit Smoking • 3. Wear Sunglasses • 4. Use Safety Eyewear • 5. Look Away From the Computer Screen • 6. Visit Your Eye Doctor Regularly

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 19 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.

You are suffering from high myopia. High myopia is degenerative condition which can cause various changes in retina. There is no proven role of medicine or food i'm improving it. Wearing uv protective glasses prevents eye of harmful rays. Eating fruits, green vegetables and fish may help, but no proven role in improving or protecting eye.

Hello sir watering from eyes most commonly occurs due to dryness you can use lubricating eyedrop like flogel having said that you should consult local ophthalmologist and ask for syringing test as excessive watering can be due to lacrimal duct blockage also.
