You should do an exercise. Take a plain paper, draw a big black circle and colour it with black too. Stick that paper on wall and sit in front of that circle at a distance of 1 meter and keep looking at it without blinking your eyes. Do it for 5 min. Repeat this cycle 2- 3 times a day. Keep handkerchief with to wipe out the eyes in between.

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--------------------- Report after 5 days---------------------- What is your weight and height Sukhram----------------

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.

My age is 27. I have been using contact lenses from last 10 years. My power is minus 4.5 on both eyes. Should I go for a laser surgery for a permanent solution. Are there any complications? Is Lasik surgery a good option?

If your power remains stagnant and there are no frequent changes then you can go for Lasik and if done by an experienced surgeon then there should be no complications. But yes there are always complications associated with any surgery. Which are occasional and rarely happens.
