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 18 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.

My friend has red eyes since last three days is it safe to ask him for watching a 5d movie.
Hello, don't ask him for watching Movie because he will get strain on eyes by watching it. Suggest him to take this treatment to take:- Take Belladonna 30, 3 drops, thrice daily. Use Schwabe's cmd2, eye drop. instill 2 drops in each eye twice daily. Wash your eyes with cold water twice daily. Revert me after 1 week.

Your unprotected anal sex will not give you HIV, if you your partner not have positive HIV. But there is more chance of tranfer of STD, VDRL and other many infections. For future marriage no problem to you or your wife. Please immidite check your blood for VDRL, absulate lymphocyte and neutrophil count and rapid check for HIV at any govt. Hospital ICTC centre free. Its total confidential record at ICTC. Don't fear. There is a chance of cure, if any problem. My advice don't do it again. Sex with condom is good.

This condition is called Eye strain, or asthenopia, in which the eyes get tired from excessive or intense use. It can be annoying, but it tends to disappear with rest. Although it’s not often a serious condition, eye strain could be a symptom of an underlying problem. Eye strain is known to cause fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and headaches----------- Eye strain may lead to other problems, such as:---------- •Headaches--- •Difficulty Concentrating--- •Irritability--- •Burning Sensation--- •Watery Eyes--- •Dry Eyes-- •Photophobia--- •Eyesight weak---. The first thing you can do is change your environment and work habits. By doing this you can relieve the pain without spending money on treatment--------------------- If you studying or reading, taking eye breaks for five minutes every hour can lessen the strain on your eyes. Simply closing your eyes for a few moments can also do wonders. Try standing up, moving around, or taking a short walk to help regain concentration. Regular eye exercises that involve focusing on different distances can help prevent future straining. Blink often. Blinking refreshes and replenishes your eyes naturally. If you are having trouble with blinking due to the dryness of your eyes, try using Homoeopathic ------CINELUBE EYEDROPS (HAPDCO) 3 times daily.-----------Visit an Eye specialist to rule out weak eyesight---------------------

If you want to get freedom from glasses and dont wish for surgery, you can opt for contact lenses. Trial for various types of contact lenses can be done at any eye clinic dealing with contact lens fitting.

For headache take tablet paracetamol and Take a flow of steam (of plain water only ) over the forehead through a crescent steam inhaler, eight hourly and Check your eye sight for refractive error and we also have to rule out sinusitis or migrane as the cause of headache after clinical examination

Hold reading matter at a slightly greater distance from the eyes and always read in good light. If the problem persists then maybe you need a higher spectacle power.

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

There is no major role of food or any other thing in keeping it good. Use of goggles outside to protect against ultraviolet rays and eating green leafy vegetables and fruits may have some effect.

I have cataract in my left eye in my early age 40 years what is reasons behind it.

I have cataract in my left eye in my early age 40 years what is reasons behind it.
The lens inside the eye works much like a camera lens, focusing light onto the retina for clear vision. It also adjusts the eye's focus, letting us see things clearly both up close and far away. The lens is mostly made of water and protein. The protein is arranged in a precise way that keeps the lens clear and lets light pass through it.But as we age, some of the protein may clump together and start to cloud a small area of the lens. This is a cataract, and over time, it may grow larger and cloud more of the lens, making it harder to see.No one knows for sure why the eye's lens changes as we age, forming cataracts. But certain factors that may cause cataracts or are associated with cataract development. Besides advancing age, cataract risk factors include: • Ultraviolet radiation from sunlight and other sources------------------- • Diabetes-------------- • Hypertension--------------- • Obesity-------------- • Smoking---------- • Prolonged use of corticosteroid medications-------------- • Statin medicines used to reduce cholesterol------------- • Previous eye injury or inflammation-------------- • Previous eye surgery------------ • Hormone replacement therapy-------------- • Significant alcohol consumption------------ • High myopia-------------- • Family history--------------------------- One theory of cataract formation that's gaining favor is that many cataracts are caused by oxidative changes in the human lens. This is supported by nutritional studies that show fruits and vegetables high in antioxidants may help prevent certain types of cataracts.---------------------------- Prevention of Cataract--------------------------- Although it iss still a debate if Cataract can be prevented but a number of studies suggest certain nutrients and nutritional supplements may reduce your risk of cataracts.-------------------------Some studies have shown that higher dietary intakes of vitamin E and the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin from food and supplements were associated with significantly decreased risks of cataract.--------------Good food sources of vitamin E include sunflower seeds, almonds and spinach.---------------------------------- Good sources of lutein and zeaxanthin include spinach, kale and other green, leafy vegetables.----------------------Other studies have shown antioxidant vitamins such as vitamin C and foods containing omega-3 fatty acids may reduce cataract risk.-------------------Another step you can take to reduce your risk of cataracts is to wear protective sunglasses that block 100 percent of the sun's UV rays when you are outdoors.-------------------------- Myself is a homoeopath andI have found inmy clinical practise that Cataracts in the first stage can be prevented with some very effective homoeopathic medicines along with Specific Diet and Exercises.Consult me with your details.
