When I watching TV and mobile phones constantly my left eyes have tears from it. What is the remedy for this?

When I watching TV and mobile phones constantly my left eyes have tears from it. What is the remedy for this?
Hi. I have a few suggestions for you regarding the usage of computers and mobile phones. Follow the rule of" 20" this means that every 20 minutes, take a gap of 20 seconds, blink your eyes actively 20 times and focus at an object which is minimum 20 feet away. This will help in relieving your eyes from the continuous strain that is caused due to staring. Staring at the computer continuously causes us to subconsciously blink less than normal. This causes the tear film on the surface of the eye to dry up. The result of this is pain, discomfort, etc. Another suggestions regarding the usage of computers is to maintain a proper posture. The computer must be positioned at the same height as your eye level. The neck should not be inadvertently flexed or extended. Roughly, an angle of 90 degrees should be maintained between your upper body and thighs. Likewise, a similar angle (90 degrees) should be maintained between your lower legs and thighs. Also the angle between your hands and arms should be roughly 90 degrees. This is the healthy ergonomic way of sitting while using a computer. Maintenance of proper posture would help in further relieving the symptoms of eye discomfort and pain. All these suggestions may take a while to sink in and imbibe in your routine. Once followed, they are sure to work wonders for you. Hope my suggestions help you. Take care. Cheers.

If its post traumatic optic nerve atrophy as you have mentioned, it means the capacity of the optic nerve of your left eye to carry vision to brain has reduced to great extent and the chances of recovery are almost negligible. You can send me all your reports personally if you want so that I can take a look at them and can explain you better.

Glaucoma - A Complete Guide on It!

Glaucoma - A Complete Guide on It!

Glaucoma is a serious eye condition in which the optic nerve gets damaged and the situation gets worse over time. If untreated, individuals may go permanently blind. Most individuals, with glaucoma, have no previous symptoms or warning signs of this disorder and this is the reason why it is important to have regular eye check-ups.

Causes of glaucoma
Eyes have a liquid called aqueous humor. This fluid flows out of the eyes through mesh like channels for proper lubrication of the eye. However, there can be situations in which these channels may get blocked. In such a case, there would be a build-up of this liquid, thereby causing an increase in fluid pressure. This is usually a major cause of glaucoma. Although there has been no elaborate evidence of what exactly causes this blockage, doctors have noticed that this can be inherited.

Other less common causes include:

  1. Any sort of blunt injury or chemical injury to the eye
  2. Blocking of blood vessels inside the eye
  3. Other inflammatory conditions
  4. Improper eye surgery

Types of glaucoma
There are mainly two kinds of glaucoma than can occur:

  1. Open-angle glaucoma: This is the most common kind of glaucoma and is also called wide-angled glaucoma. In this kind, the tubular meshwork through which the liquid flow occurs is normal. However, the fluid flow isn’t the way it should be.
  2. Angle-closure glaucoma: This is also known as acute glaucoma or chronic angle closure. In this case, the liquid is not able to drain properly because of the angle between the iris and the cornea being too narrow, thus causing the iris to be in the way. This can cause a sudden build-up of pressure, thereby leading to chronic glaucoma.

Facts about glaucoma

  1. This disorder usually has no previous signs or symptoms and occurs all of a sudden.
  2. This disorder mainly affects individuals above 40 years of age.
  3. Glaucoma can be inherited.
  4. People with diabetes have chances of suffering from glaucoma.
  5. If not treated early, it may lead to permanent blindness.

Symptoms of glaucoma
Usually there aren’t many symptoms to warn people about this disorder. However, one of the first signs is definitely losing peripheral or side vision. Other symptoms might include

  1. Chronic vision loss
  2. Visibility of halo around lights
  3. Narrowed vision

Glaucoma is treated by any of the three methods:

  1. Prescription eye drops in order to reduce eye fluid formation, thereby resulting in outflow increase
  2. Laser surgery
  3. Microsurgery

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ophthalmologist.

I have red eyes from last 3 days what should I do now please tell me I WANT GET ANSWER.
Eyes appear red because the vessels at the surface of the white portion of the eye (sclera) become swollen. Vessels may swell due to: • Eye dryness • Too much sun exposure • Dust or other particles in the eye • Allergies • Infection • Injury Homoeopathic medicine EUPHRASIA 30 ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 2 drops direct on tongue every 2-3 hrly CINERARIA /EUPHRASIA EYEDROPS ( SBL ) pour into eyes 1-2 drops 3 times daily

Dry eyes due to Lasik is a common symptom for the first 3-6 months. If dryness persists beyond that you may require additional treatment. Mild dryness maybe environmental and not related to Lasik - this requires regular instillation of drops. Kindly visit your eye surgeon for further check up
