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 If no relief within 5 days,please cosult an Eye specialist for physical examination.

Cancer can have many symptoms depending on where the cancer has arisen from. For example, if there is a lung cancer, it can present as coughing with lot of sputum or blood. It may present as a lump or swelling like in breast cancer, etc prevention is always better than cure. So it is always wise to prevent things that cause cancer, eg. Smoking. Any cancer if detected early, can be treated ususally. So we should be more aware and guarded. It is not necessary that a person has diabetes if he/she has cancer. I hope that helps you.

itching sensation in the corner of right eye. It is not continuous. Repeatingly occurring.

itching sensation in the corner of right eye. It is not continuous. Repeatingly occurring.
The symptoms described by you are suggestive that you have an eye allergy. Recurrent itching (not continuous) may occur seasonally or throughout the year. It may/ may not be associated with other allergies. The best treatment for allergy is eye hygiene. It should be remembered as a rule not to rub the eyes with fingers. Doing so transmits a lot of dust and bacteria in the eye. Please avoid it. Also, another good idea would be clean your hands with soap and water and subsequently splash your eyes with clean water (may be done thrice daily). This will help in getting rid of your allergic symptoms. If the itching persists, it would be a wise idea to consult an eye specialist personally and get the eyes checkd in detail. Hope my suggestions help you. Take care.

Kaem Chho Jagdish Bhai ? There is no permanent treatment for GPC and steroids are the only medicine that provide some relief from this problem . Try using steroid ointment instead of drops. Also try using Tacrolimus ointment twice a day after consulting your eye doctor. Best wishes.

Wear glasses regularly. Avoid rubbing your eyes. Contact lens is also a good option but get it from a reputed ophthalmologist as for astigmatism you will need special lenses called toric lenses which need to be fitted for your eye and trial given for few hours before a final pair is ordered.

Hello. There is no exercise which can reduce number. As you r already 26 years old. Your number is now stable as your height. So if you want to get rid of glasses. Try contact lens or lasik surgery.

you can plan lasik laser surgery Lasik is a simple laser procedure which changes the shape of the cornea so that the light rays fall on the retina properly. It is a painless procedure. It is a day care procedure does not require any injections, does not require admission, you can simply resume your duties in 2 days. Cost varies from centre to centre. Side effects are usually limited to dryness of eyes for few months. We can do lasik anytime after age of 18 years. You need to undergo proper prelasik checkup to decide whether lasik is safe for you or not

When ever I use mobile phone longer and ride my bike so my eyes drop a water very much please give me a solution.

When ever I use mobile phone longer and ride my bike so my eyes drop a water very much please give me a solution.
For bike ride: First you need to get your eyes tested for any glass power Wear protective glasses while you r travelling to avoid dust and dirt entering the eyes. More importantly put on helmet with wisor (front glass covering) while driving two wheeler Here are the instructions for mobile phone use: 1. Blink, blink and blink again. Blinking often (and for more than a second) keeps your eyes moist and reduces dryness and irritation. We tend blink about a third less than we normally would when we stare at our smartphone screens, which starves our poor peepers of protective tears. Keep your eyes wet by blinking about 10 times every 20 minutes or so and you should be good to go. 2. Minimize glare. Unless you have a smartphone equipped with anti-glare Corning Gorilla Glass or use a matte screen protector film, you’re probably coping with a fair amount of annoying reflective glare. 3. Take breaks. Follow 20-20-20 rule. The concept is to take a break from looking at your screen every 20 minutes for 20 seconds while looking at something 20 feet away. Doing so relaxes your eye muscles 4. Adjust your brightness. Having your screen too bright or too dark stresses your eyes out and can cause problems maintaining focus. To eliminate either issue in about a matter of seconds, simply go into your smartphone settings and adjust your screen brightness so it’s about the same as the light level in the environment around you 5. Tweak your text size and contrast. Adjusting your smartphone text contrast and size also provides a little much-needed relief. 6. Keep a clean screen. Routinely wipe down your smartphone screen with a dry (not wet!) cleaning cloth to remove distracting dust, grime, smudges and fingerprints. 7. Hold your smartphone farther away. Try holding yours at least 16 to 18 inches away from your eyes to give your eyes a break.

Working on laptops will not change your eye power. It is true that it leads to dryness of the eyes which can result in redness, burning, watering and sometimes blurring of vision which can cause eye pain or headache. For dryness (also known as computer vision syndrom) you have to blink frequently and to relax every 20 minutes looking at 20 feet distance for 20 secs (20-20-20 rule. And lubricant eye drops. For eye power you have to glasses or contact lenses if you want to avoid glasses. But no tablet can improve eyesight.

Hello. Get your eyes tested again from some other good opthalmologist, may be the power of your eyes has increased. While using computer for long hours, take small frequent breaks after every 1 hour, keep your eyes blinking frequently, do eye exercises regularly. Include the following for getting better vision: Vitamins A, C, E, and minerals like copper and zinc are essential to eyesight. Get the antioxidants from dark leafy greens, egg yolks, yellow peppers, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Include garlic and onions. Blueberries, grapes as they have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help improve your vision. DHA is a fatty acid found in coldwater fish like wild salmon, sardines and mackerel. Use Euphrasia eye drops twice daily.
