It seems probably you spend a long time on your computer and you have developed computer vision syndrome. Go to a clinic for eye check up. Get your refraction done. Orthoptics done. To find any refractive error or muscle weakness. Also try to blink your eyes properly while work. Use good tear substitutes. And anti glare screen for your system. Use zoneph thrice and genteal four times day.

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 23 years so your number will not increase much 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.

I constantly keep thinking of getting rid of my spectacles. My family took me to psychiatrist and they have put me on OCD and anxiety medicine. Should I take it or just go for eye surgery as I am eligible for it.

Dear lybrate-user, Your family is interested in you. Probably they felt you are more worried about getting rid of specs than other serious signs of anxiety interfering in your studies. Please ask the psychiatrist what is the diagnosis. You are eligible to ask for it. It may be a body dysmorphic disorder or OCD or Anxiety disorder. If it is so, even after eye surgery, your other symptoms will not improve. Only expensive surgical cost. Please take the medicines prescribed by psychiatrist. Many medicines are given for many other illnesses. There are no OCD medicine - they are antidepressants and anxiolytics. Names and dose differs according to diagnosis. Your parents will take you for eye surgery, if your education. Improves and you have a good opinion of yourself.

Hello, you should take ruta 30 ch, 3 drops twice daily. Take 10mlamla juice daily. Take 1 tsp of triphla ghrit, with milk once daily. Do the below given exercises to strengthen your eye muscles. Warm your eyes. Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Repeat this three times. Roll your eyes. Start by looking up and then slowly circle 10 times clockwise and 10 times counterclockwise. Focus. Hold a pen at arm's length, focus your eyes on it, and slowly bring the pen closer until it's about 6 inches away from your nose. Then slowly move it back, keeping your eyes focused on the pen, 10 times in all. Massage your temples. Using your thumb knuckles, massage your temples in small circles, 20 times in one direction and 20 in the other. Repeat the same actions above the mid-point of the eyebrows at the forehead, then below the eyes on both sides of the bridge of the nose. Take a mini-nap. Put your head back, close your eyes, and relax for 3 minutes. Insufficient sleep may weaken your vision, so shoot for 8 hours of sound sleep a night. Rest your eyes 10 minutes for every 50 minutes spent reading or in front of the computer. If your eyes feel overly tired, lie down and place cooling cucumber slices over your eyelids.
