I have lots of computer works to do, now my eye site getting weak, what should I do?

I have lots of computer works to do, now my eye site getting weak, what should I do?
Hello dear. 1. Computer work can't make your eyes weak. Onlt thing it can do is computer vision syndrome. I will describe computer vision syndrome subsequently. 2. Your refractive error (glass number) will not increase much now as it usually stabilizes at 18-20years age. So relax 3. To get rid of glasses you can try contact lens or go for lasik surgery now coming to computer vision syndrome: prolonged working on laptop/tv/mobile can cause computer vision syndrome. Computer vision syndrome is a condition resulting from focusing the eyes on a computer or other display device for, uninterrupted periods of time. Some symptoms of cvs include a. Headaches b blurred vision c. Neck pain d redness in the eyes e. Eye strain f dry eyes these symptoms can be further aggravated by improper lighting conditions. Measures to reduce this include 1. Work under proper light. 2. Blink a lot. 3. Cold compresses 4. Use good lubricating eyedrop.

When I watch something in bright light and then come back to dim light I use to see some dark spots before me. Is there any problem related to my eyes?

It is a normal Phenomenon and nothing too serious regarding your eyess.This is very similar to the effect that you get when you're standing there at a party and someone takes a photo, and you get those spots in front of your eyes from the flashes and you just can't see anything. It’s because of something called photo-bleaching and it happens to the cells in your retina which is the light sensitive bit at the back of your eye. It’s populated with cells called rods and cones, and these are full of light sensitive pigments. Normally, in a normal situation, you get light as particles called photons coming into your eye, these stimulate the cells by changing this light sensitive pigment, which is called retinal, into a slightly different form and they stimulate the cells to send electrical impulses to your brain. But if you get a really bright light like a flash or if you look at the sun for a long time or even just a really bright light bulb, this sends the cells into overdrive and they get really overexcited, and it takes them a little while to calm down. So then when you look at a normal level of light, like a wall,or in a dark area you get these kind of black spots where you've been looking at light where the cells have been over stimulated. So, you have lost the photo pigment in that particular area temporarily because it’s been broken down by the photons of light hitting it, and when it regenerates, it comes back then you see normal again, but while it’s regenerating up the pigment because of the overexposure, you see a less intense spot, so you therefore see a dark spot. It’s worth noting actually that the retina is less active when light shines on it than in the dark. It’s in fact deactivated by light rather than activated by light.

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 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.

Dear lybrate user, red eyes and itching 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

You could have a corneal abrasion or even a small conjunctival tear. It is advisable to consult an eye specialist as treatment without a proper consultation could result in corneal ulcer which is dangerous to your eye and vision.

My son is six and a half year old. Should I feed him vitamin A as a precautionary measure so that his eye sight gets support and his eyes might not get weak in future. Right now he is not having any specs means his eyes are well. But around 1 week ago he suddenly started blinking his eyes more after getting stressed after his studies or watching TV. After 2- 3 days his blinking became normal. Today he was again blinking more, may be because he slept less at night. So what should I do. Please help.

You should provide vit A in form of Beta carotenoid which is available in plenty in fruits like papaya ,mango etc , you should give vitA directly which is fat soluble & get deposited in liver..Your child is suffering from dryness due to addiction to smartphone , computer,TV , you should lubricating eye drops like Systane ultra eye drops 4-5 times .

Computer vision sundrome may present with such symptoms. You can reduce the brightness of the screen and take regular breaks between work. Do not forget to blink normally. You may also use a lubricating eye drop, but it would be best if an eye doctor checked and prescribed these to you.

Does patching of good eye help reduce squint in the other eye? What are other options available to reduce squint in eye.

Does patching of good eye help reduce squint in the other eye? What are other options available to reduce squint in eye.
Hello. Patching therapy is definitely useful if done at a specific age range. It helps in reducing the squint as well as improving the visual acuity. Other options available to improve squint in the eye are: (1) surgery for the squint. It should be done after patching therapy has been tried or else if there is a risk of vision loss in the affected eye due to amblyopia. (2) certain eye drops are useful and act as an indirect patch for the eye. (3) glasses. Certain types and degrees of squints are correctable by glasses. A squint specialist would be the best person to consult in this regard. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care.

The most common causes of headaches are stress, exposure to strong sunlight or bright lights, inadequate and irregular food and water intake and sinusitis. You seem to already been diagnosed as tension headache. It is due to build up of muscle tension in response to stress. So you need to learn different methods of handling and dealing with stress. Meditation, pranayam, yoga, self hypnosis, reiki are some of the relaxation techniques you may try. For associated eye pain is most likely referred, but can also be due to sinusitis, eye muscle imbalance and uncorrected refractive error. Please get an eye checkup done to make sure your eyes are healthy.

i would advice you to kindly visit a physician for the same. emperically if you feel the cause is related to eye pathology,I would advice you to kindly get a proper and thorough eye examination under slit lamp, peripheral retinal screening, refractive error testing, and orthoptics examination to rule out the differentials of such condition.

Hello lybrate-user, first and foremost KNOW YOUR EYE ALLERGY well. There are various EYE ALLERGIES TRIGGERS: You could be allergic to: •Pollen from grasses, weeds, and trees. These are the most common kinds of eye allergies and are called SEASONAL ALLERGIC CONJUNCTIVITIS. •Dust, pet dander, and other indoor allergens. These eye allergies last year-round and are called CHRONIC (PERENNIAL) CONJUNCTIVITIS. •Makeup, perfume, or other chemicals can trigger eye allergies called CONTACT CONJUNCTIVITIS. •An allergy to contact lenses, called GIANT PAPILLARY CONJUNCTIVITIS, makes eyes sensitive and red. Just like any other allergic reaction, they are caused by a MISFIRING OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM, the body's natural defense mechanism. It releases HISTAMINE, a chemical that causes swelling and inflammation. Thus, the first thing to do would be to identify the trigger and then avoid it altogether. The symptoms to Watch For are: •Red, irritated eyes •Itchiness •Tearing or runny eyes •Swollen eyelids •Soreness, burning, or pain •Sensitivity to light Usually you’ll also have other allergy symptoms, such as a stuffy, runny nose and sneezing. DON'T TAKE YOUR EYES FOR GRANTED! Protect your sight with these six tips: 1. Eat for Good Vision 2. Quit Smoking 3. Wear Sunglasses 4. Wash your eyes 3-4 times a day 5. Look Away From the Computer Screen at regular intervals 6. Avoid rubbing your eyes with fingers/ cloth/ shirt/ dupatta, etc. 7. Use a lubricant (preservative free) eye drop especially in the seasons when you are more prone to allergy.
