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 20 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.

Hi, some of the squint conditions can be corrected surgically not all. To know if your eyes are fit for such surgery you have to visit a squint specialist. Most of the time they are a cosmetic surgery meant to improve the cosmetic appeal of the patient. The vision will however remain the same, it wll not improve much. So please consult a squint specialist and get the best treatment.

I see weird white structure in vision after closing eyes for 10 to 20 sec in sunshine. And white flashes in vision. My eyes are red at night. I have negative glasses -2 in both eyes.

You are having myopia of minus 2, the symptoms you have described point towards what are called as" floaters" these are very minor issues, quite common in myopes, you can ignore them to a large extent. Only if they become too many or too troublesome to ignore, do they need serious attention. Red eyes by evening may suggest that you may need change in your eye glasses, or some kind of allergy, especially if it is associated with itching. An ophthalmologist consultation will give you clarity on all these issues, including ruling out your fear of retinal detachment.

My eyesight has been stable for the past 15 years. Although now I feel that my eyes are always stressed. Even washing with water gives temporary relief. Even when I get up in the morning, my eyes feel heavy, irritated and stressed. Closing eyes bring relief, and I feel like I should keep my eyes closed all the time. I don't watch tv or use laptop for extended periods. Mobile use however is extensive. I'm not on any medication currently and have no history of any disease. Please suggest the proper course of action.

What is MOTIYABIND ? CAN IT BE CURED BY MEDICINES AT EARLY STAGE WITHOUT OPERATION ?

Phaco Development Program, Fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology, DNB Ophtalmology, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Mysore
Motiyabind in english is known as cataract. Within the eye there is a natural lens. It is transparent. As we age the lens looses its transparency and become cloudy. This is known as cataract/motiyabind. As of now there are no medicines that can cure this condition even if it is in early stage. It is advisable for a patient with cataract to undergo surgery. With the latest advances the cataract surgery is virtually painless. So do not hesitate to undergo cataract surgery if your eye specialist advises it.

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.

First, apply heat to your eyes by rubbing your palms together and then placing them over your eyes. Hold your hands over your eyes for five to 10 seconds, and then repeat. Do this before performing any eye exercises in order to prepare your eyes! Start exercising by rolling your eyes. Eating a healthy diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables will seriously help improve your eyesight and keep it from deteriorating. It is also important to eat the right vitamins to support eye health. Vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamin A, C, and E, are all important to eye health. Anti-oxidants (remember eating carrots for your eyes?) are also a great source of nutrients for healthy eyes. Our Rebuild Your Vision Program actually recommends 17 different vitamins you should take to support your eyesight Supporting your eye health is just one of the many benefits of getting enough sleep and taking breaks during the work day. If you work on a computer all day, your eyes are probably under a lot of strain. Do yourself (and your eyes) a favor by taking a break for about 10 minutes for every 50 minutes spent in front of the screen. Simply close your eyes for a minute or get up and walk around the office. Focus on something that isn’t a screen. You can also rest your eyes by following the 10-10-10 rule. This means you should look at something 10 feet away for 10 seconds for every 10 minutes you spend working on the computer! One of the fastest ways to improve your vision naturally is to perform daily eye exercises. Eye exercises are meant to strengthen the eyes and improve vision. Using eye exercises can even eliminate your need for contacts or glasses. Get a regular schedule of eye exercises and try to do them daily – this will help you get in the habit of performing exercises and also help you achieve better vision fast Start exercising by rolling your eyes. Rolling is one of the easiest eye exercises! Without straining your eyes (remember to stop if it hurts), look up as far as you can. Then, look down. Repeat this 10 times. Now look to each side, repeating 10 times. After that, look in each diagonal direction. Finally, roll your eyes in a counter-clockwise motion about 10 times, then reverse the movement and roll them clockwise. Grab a pen and hold it at arm’s length, making sure the pen is at eye level. Focus on the tip of the pen as you move it closer to your eyes. Stop when you get about six inches away from your face, and focus on the tip as you move it back to arm’s length. Remember to do this slowly and focus on the tip of the pen. Repeat about 10 times. Massage your eyes after exercising. First, massage your temples with your fingertips or one of your knuckles. Move in a clockwise motion several times, and then switch to a counter-clockwise motion. Massage over your eyebrows and under your eyes as well. When you’re done exercising and massaging, apply heat to your eyes once more by rubbing your palms together. If your eyes are really tired, close them and rest for a few moments. Resting your eyes frequently, as described in the previous section, is very important to preserving the health of your eyes!

Glaucoma prevention not help full any idea to fix this. When I can stop drops? How can I get relief? Please suggest something.

MS - Ophthalmology, FICO, FRCS - I & II
Ophthalmologist, Mathura
Dear patient yes to prevent glaucoma is very difficult but what is required is regular checkup of vision and eye pressure (intra ocular pressure) by eye specialist after the age of 40 years specially if you have family history of glaucoma. If glaucoma is diagnosed early and treatment started loss of vision is reversible and vision is stabilized. How to fix glaucoma depends on type of glaucoma. Silent or painless glaucoma also known as chronic simple glaucoma, painful glaucoma (acute congestive glaucoma. In first type patient does not know till late as no pain so diagnosis is delayed. But in acute type it is diagnosed early so vision is restored fast. Many tests are required to confirm the diagnosis of glaucoma and type of glaucoma like eye pressure measurement, automated visual field analysis, fundus exam specially optic disc, corneal thickness, retinal nerve fiber thickness around optic disc and gonioscopy. Once glaucoma is diagnosed use of anti glaucoma eye drops are life long under supervision usually causing lot of financial burden on patient that, s why glaucoma surgery is done bit early to reduce medications but this is case specific. You will get relief by properly following doctor, s advise. Normally first medical treatment is started. Many anti glaucoma eye drops and tablets (diamox) are there, best decided by eye specialist. If eye pressure is controlled by medications usually medications are life long but in very select cases surgery is done to control eye pressure. One of common side effect of long use of anti glaucoma eye drops is dry eye which also need to be tackled with eye soothing eye drops like refresh tears. Hope this answers your query about glaucoma.
