My boy is 13 days old and has a lot of Eye discharge. What should be done?

Phaco Development Program, Fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology, DNB Ophtalmology, MBBS
Ophthalmologist,
It is mostly a block in the naso-lacrimal duct. It is common in infants. You will have to use some antibiotic eye drops like toba 4 times per day and perform criggler's massage . But sometimes there may a serious infection too so better consult a doctor who has specialised in pediatric ophthalmology

Please check your blood for bilirubin if you are having Gilbert's Syndrome. If not then it would be due to working too long on laptops/mobiles/exposure to fumes/gas/smoke/dust..... try to wear glasses (0-power) when working/studying.

Sinus congestion often causes watering of eyes. You may inhale steam with tulsi so that the sinuses get cleared up. Protect your eyes from direct steam.

I am having the issue of Retinitis pigmentosa from last 7 years. Please let me know by any way i can rectify this issue.?

Retinitis pigmentosa is a genetic disorder and it cannot be rectified. There are gene therapies in research but have not yet come to clinical trial stage. For now you'll have to use glasses or if vision is very poor then you have to use low vision aids. Also get all family members evaluated.

I am struggling with my red eyes daily someone says it as a dust allergy but it is too irritating what can I do?

I am struggling with my red eyes daily someone says it as a dust allergy but it is too irritating what can I do?
hello...i think u have allergic conjunctivitis..Eye allergies, called allergic conjunctivitis, are a common condition that occurs when the eyes react to something that irritates them (called an allergen). The eyes produce a substance called histamine to fight off the allergen. As a result, the eyelids and conjunctiva (the thin, filmy membrane that covers the inside of your eyelids) become red, swollen and itchy, with tearing and burning. The key to treating eye allergies is to avoid or limit contact with the substance causing the problem.Avoid rubbing eyes instead do cold compresses. Use antiallergic eyedrop along with lubricating eyedrop. this will help u I am very sorry dear to say that there is no drud that can cure allergy..only way is to stay away from all those things that u r allergic to .

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

Hi, don't worry,Homeopathy does offer treatment for eye floaters. there are many medicines available like kali-iod, kali-carb, phosphorus, thuja, suphur, senega, silecia, natrum-mur etc. But the medicine that may help varies from person to person and it’s not possible to tell u what u need without a detailed case analysis.So please share your symptoms in detail for a proper medication. Get checked your eye sight by an ophthalmologist.

Hello lybrate-user. Sorry about your eye trouble. You could consider using glasses or contact lens. Otherwise you could consider undergoing surgery to remove the power of your glass. Operations done to remove the refractive error (power) of the eyes are known as refractive surgery (lasik). There are certain basic criteria that most patients need to fulfill before they can safely undergo refractive surgery. To enumerate, they are: (1) stability of refraction: the power of the eyes should have become stable for a period of 1.5 years minimum without any change. (2) curvature of the cornea should be tested by a technique which is known as topography. (3) thickness of the cornea should be measured by a test known as pachymetry. The minimum thickness required is 550 microns. (4) dilated retina evaluation: this is one of the most important tests that should be performed by a trained retina specialist. This test helps in detection of any offensive lesion on the central or peripheral retina. In case of any retinal abnormality, these should be treated before undergoing the surgery for number reduction. (5) there should be no pre-existent corneal abnormality. (example: corneal scar, opacity, defect, etc.) another important suggestion is that whenever you go for the assessment (the above mentioned tests), you should discontinue the use of contact lenses at least 4 weeks prior to the assessment. The reason for this being that use of contact lens temporarily alters the contour of the cornea. It takes around 3-4 weeks for the restoration of the original corneal contour after removal of the contact lens. Another important point is that you, as a patient, should be compliant to put post operative medication in your eyes for at least 2 months. There is bound to be some discomfort, watering, foreign body sensation, pain after the surgery in most cases-you should be ready to tolerate that. A leave from work for 7-10 days after the surgery should be generally sufficient. Last but not the least, you should set realistic expectations from this surgery. Though extremely rare, there is a remote possibility that the surgery may need to be repeated. Also, the need for subsequent treatment for the eye may be required. Thus, you should be compliant enough to trust and follow your eye specialist.
