You might be having a refractive error & may need glasses. Visit your ophthalmologist to rule it out. Once it is ruled out, then try other therapies.

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 contact lens or lasik 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.

Well its unclear what type of surgery your doctor has advised. And also you need to ask what is cause of vision being cloudy. Based on that only cost of surgery can be determined.

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

Yawning is when your body takes an incredibly deep breath in which your mouth opens wide to take in the desired air. There are a number of different reasons than can lead to yawning excessively. 1 sleepiness ------can be the main reason. Believe it or not, this is not a myth. The majority of excessive yawning is a result of a lack of sleep. Obviously, those that are not getting an adequate amount of sleep will need to increase their time for snoozing in order to minimize the yawning they experience throughout the day. Weshould sleep approximately eight hours of sleep each night. However, people vary and some require more sleep, while others can get by with a little less. Therefore, determining if a lack of sleep is your cause of frequently yawning will fall back on self-examination. Nevertheless, this method will only work if lack of sleep is the initial cause. 2. Sleep apnea.------ This condition should be diagnosed by a doctor and refers to a condition denoted by periods throughout the night in which the person stops breathing. Anyone correcting the amount of sleep they are achieving without yawning less should seek medical attention to ensure that sleep apnea is not the problem. If it is, this condition is generally treated with an automated administration of oxygen throughout the night. 3. Certain medications such as antidepressants may also increase your yawning as well 4.Other reasons for constantly yawning include everything from epilepsy to anxiety. In an anxious situation, yawning may signify a person attempting to catch his or her breath so that proper breathing is resumed. Along with these two conditions, brain tumors, heart attacks, multiple sclerosis, and several other medical conditions may be a cause to the increase in your yawning. Despite the severity of some of these situations, typically the yawning is accompanied by other, more serious symptoms. Therefore, it is essential that you amend the amount of sleep you are obtaining each night in an attempt to rectify this problem before jumping to conclusions. However, if these attempts appear to fail, it is recommended that you seek a medical examination in order to ensure that the problem is not a serious condition.

I have problem in my left eye, the size of the eyeball in my left eye is a much bigger than normal eyeball (28) and the doctor told me that the power of my lens will be 10d. Wearing glasses would cause a double image (because of so much power), so I need to wear eye contact lens of less power. I wanted to know that is there is a surgery or a laser operation to cure this?(I have myopia and the vision of my left right eye is normal).

For reading: take frequent breaks while studying and dip a handkerchief in cold water and keep it over closed eyes for 2 minutes during breaks, you will feel better. Also get your eyes checked for any spectacle number. For pc: you have something called as computer vision syndrome. So take frequent breaks while you are working every 20-25 mins take break to look away from screen blink more frequently' level of screen should be below the level of eyes ac should not blow directly on your face.

Since only two days indicates mild infection which is causing pain & redness. You can take antibiotic orally for 3-4 days ( tab L-cin 500 mg once daily) & antibiotic eye drops 4-5 times a day( vigamox eye drops ).
