My age is 30 my eye power is -8 of both eyes. Many times I used to contact lenses and one more thing is LASIK laser therapy I s safe?

It works! it corrects vision. Around 96% of patients will have their desired vision after lasik. An enhancement can further increase this number. Lasik is associated with very little pain due to the numbing drops that are used. Vision is corrected nearly immediately or by the day after lasik. No bandages or stitches are required after lasik. Adjustments can be made years after lasik to further correct vision if vision changes while you age. After having lasik, most patients have a dramatic reduction in eyeglass or contact lens dependence and many patients no longer need them at all. Disadvantages: changes made to the cornea cannot be reversed after lasik. Lasik is technically complex. Problems may occur when the doctor creates the flap, which can permanently affect vision. Lasik can rarely cause a loss of" best" vision. Your best vision is the highest degree of vision that you achieved while wearing your contacts or eyeglasses. Side effects:-- some patients experience discomfort in the first 24 to 48 hours after lasik eye surgery. Other side effects, although rare, may include: glare seeing halos around images difficulty driving at night fluctuating vision dry eyes.

Glaucoma - 7 Signs You Are Suffering From It!

MBBS, MS
Ophthalmologist, Navi Mumbai
Glaucoma - 7 Signs You Are Suffering From It!

Glaucoma is a group of diseases that causes damage to your eye's optic nerve and gets worse over time. The optic nerve is a bundle of millions of nerve fibres which carry visual impulse from the retina at the back of eye to the brain. The increased Eye pressure, called intraocular pressure, can damage the optic nerve and fasten the natural nerve fibre loss. Since nerve cells can't regenerate this damage is permanent and irreversible.

Without treatment, glaucoma can cause total permanent blindness within a few years. Because most people with glaucoma have no early symptoms or pain from this increased pressure, it is important to see your eye doctor regularly so that glaucoma can be diagnosed early and treated before significant functional visual loss occurs.

If you are over age 40 and have a family history of glaucoma, you should have a complete eye exam with an eye doctor every one to two years. If you have any risk factors, you may need to visit your eye doctor more frequently.

What Are the Symptoms of Glaucoma?

For most people, there are usually few or no symptoms of glaucoma. The first sign of glaucoma is often the loss of peripheral or side vision, which can go unnoticed until late in the disease. This is why glaucoma is often called the "Sneak Thief of Vision" or "Silent Thief of Eye Sight".

If you have any of the following symptoms, seek immediate medical care:

  1. Seeing halos around lights
  2. Vision loss
  3. Redness in the eye
  4. Eye that looks hazy (particularly in infants)
  5. Nausea or vomiting
  6. Pain in the eye
  7. Narrowing of vision (tunnel vision)

Risk Factors

There are several risk factors, which may lead to glaucoma, such as

  1. Age of the individual
  2. Ethnicity- African, Caribbean, Hispanics and Asians are at higher risk
  3. Increased eye pressure or IOP History of glaucoma in family or relatives
  4. Presence of Myopia or Hyperopia
  5. Previous eye injuries
  6. Use of steroids- as injections, tablets, eye or ear drops or ointments or protein supplements for muscle building in gyms or inhalers
  7. Previous history of anemia
  8. Individuals conditions affecting blood flow like hypertension, diabetes or high blood sugar, migraine etc are also at risk.

Treatment-

The treatment for glaucoma relies on the nature and seriousness of every case. Generally, glaucoma cannot be totally cured, but it can be controlled. Eye drops, pills, laser strategies, and means of surgery are utilized to maintain and prevent further harm from happening. Talk to your eye doctor to find out if you are at risk of developing glaucoma.

Regular eye wash is a must to remove all the dust particles which settles in the eye. Also try using antihistaminic eye drops to reduce the allergy.

Its a naevus, the white part is sclera. Yes it has to be removed as soon as possible, as increase in size may indicate malignant changes. Consult your ophthalmologist urgently.

Chamomile possesses antispasmodic properties and is also a great remedy for digestion related problems such as gas, dyspepsia and indigestion. It stimulates appetite which, in turn, enables one to put on weight by eating more. Drink chamomile tea on a regular basis for quick results. Peppermint tea also works wonders.

Eat healthy and exercise daily - join a gym. Your diet must include a glass of juice (any juice), fresh fruits and a full serving of salads at every meal: cucumber, tomato, carrot, beetroot, radish, onion slices or spring onion, raw cauliflower, cabbage leaf, sprouted seeds etc. Add other greens I hv not mentioned. All this is essential to give you a balanced nutrient boost. Cut out any junk food and aerated drinks totally. Generally foods that come out of a packet, or tin can, or bottle shud be avoided. Exercise to increase circulation:- 2 mins of hard exercise then 1 min rest - do this four times a day. You can either do it all in one go or split it into sessions through the day. In total it is only 12 mins a day so should not be a big issue. A very useful exercise is to jump in one place simulating skipping. Build up your time to 2 mins. Of jumping. The benefits of this is ungaugeable, and cannot be explained medically as yet, it effects the entire body. In conclusion, live and eat healthy and you will develop energy, a glowing skin and a healthy'go' in life -regardless of age. In todays urban atmosphere, exercise indoors unless you live in rural areas or in the hills. Otherwise buy electrical air purifiers, put it on full and exercise in front of it.

Hello dear recurrent uveitis warrant some tests like cbc, esr, crp, chest x ray, mantoux test, s. Ace and ana and canca. If all these are normal then take steroid treatment depending on whether it is anterior, intermediate or posterior uveitis. We usually give steroid sparing drugs in case uveitis persistd for long and warrants treatment for long.
