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.

I was diagnosed with a retinal detachment and given a gas injection to the eye. I went back the next day and he lasered the tears shut and said everything looked good. However, I can still see the gas bubble in my eye. When does that go away? What do I do for it?

The bubble will go away by itself with time, you should not worry about it. In case of any other problem, just be in touch with your Retinal specialist.

Hello You must consult local ophthalmologist and he will perform cycloplegic refraction to evaluate if any glasses are required Moreover your child is old enough. We have many techniques which can give us fair idea about vision Trreatment of squint depends on type and amount of deviation. If required. Early surgery is better.

If your headache is not resolving. Its best to see a physician or a neurologist. Antibiotics should be used 9nly for infections when prescribed by a doctor- else you can later develop drug resistant infections which r really difficult to control. Antibiotics have no role in treatment of headache unless it is cause by an infection eg you have severe urti n fever associated with headache. Seeing light spots, bright lights or colorful lights are called visual phenomena n are sometimes part of migraine. Per se no treatment is required for them.

Hello, often when we are undergoing mental & emotional stress, our body tends to respond to it by disturbing our sleep & appetite. There are also times when we recognise our resources which help us survive the stress. Wanting to sleep is a way of your body to survive. It would be helpful if you are able to work around the stress by consulting a psychologist who can guide you to develop functional resources.

DRY EYES: MAJOR EYE PROBLEM

In modern time, dry eye has become a major ophthalmic problem. Itching, grittiness, watering, foreign body sensations, discharge and at times blurred vision can be the symptoms of dry eyes. Such patients feel relief when they wash their eyes with water.

The condition can be diagnosed by the symptoms or by shirmer test. Even those who use computer get "computer vision syndrome" which is due to dry eyes. Post lasik or after any eye surgery, patient can have dry eyes. Most of the women at menopausal age get dry eyes. The incidence of dry eyes increases with age.

You must consult an ophthalmologist if you have any of these complaints.

Healthy Vision - 8 Tips For It!

Healthy Vision - 8 Tips For It!

During summer you try to take special care about the overall health of your body, particularly, your eyes. Eyes are one of the most important organs of the body, and the scorching summer heat can cause serious eye problems like conjunctivitis, infections, red eye, migraines etc., which is why it's important to take proper care of eyes during the summer season.

Here are some tips to keep your eyes cool and protected during the summer:

  • Wearing sunglasses is very important when you are outdoors as it protects your eyes from the harmful UVA and UVB light. This will help in avoiding migraines and even serious conditions like cataract.
  • Avoid midday sunshine. Stay indoors as much as possible during the middle of the day to avoid the sunshine then when the effect of the sun and ultraviolet radiation exposure are at their peak.
  • When you plan to go for a swim, make sure you wear your swimming goggles. Otherwise you might catch conjunctivitis.
  • You should not splash water into the eyes directly unless any foreign particles such as dust enter your eyes. This might damage the tear film of the eye, which protects your eyes.
  • You need to maintain proper hygiene by washing your hands and face properly as soon as you reach home so that dust or grime does not enter the eyes as their entry can result in allergies and infections.
  • You can keep a slice of cucumber on each of your eyes to relax and cool them down.
  • 6 to 8 hours of sleep are a must as they help in revitalizing your eyes.
  • Adding green vegetables, carrots, nuts, liver and fruits to your diet would be very beneficial for the health of your eyes. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ophthalmologist.

Hello, Consult a paediatric ophthalmologist. It could a plain eye infection or eye power. Avoid giving him things to play which exert strain on his eyes.

Hello Doctor recently I done eye operation of glaucoma past 2 months back present I'm normal now can I drink alcohol.
Hello lybrate-user. Alcohol has shown to increase the eye pressure. You already have been diagnosed with glaucoma. I would suggest you to refrain (avoid) from drinking alcohol for at least 6 months. Also avoid tobacco chewing or cigarette smoking. Take care.
