Hellolybrate-user. 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. In case you have any other queries, feel free to contact me. Hope my suggestions help you, take care, regards.

Ayurveda therapies and medications could help improve your quality of vision and strengthen your eyes gradually along simple eye exercises. Especially effective in numbers as low as 2. Needs admission for the same. It's always good to give the eyes opportunity to see without glasses so that they work better and get activated to adjust the focus itself. So that the power does not progress.

He may be having what we call congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction. You need to massage the nasal area. Google'crigler massage' or check on youtube and do it dutifully till the baby is one year old. Most of the time, the condition subsides on its own just with the massage. If there is too much discharge then you need to put mild antibiotic drops to prevent further infection.

Is there any remedy for retinitis pigmentosa? Is it hereditory? What are the chances of transmission to second generation?

Sorry to say but there are many researches going on for this still with no full proof result. Some people are doing omentoplasty for it. You should search for ongoing research.

Yes your eye number changes as your body grows but usually stabilizes by the age of 20-22. So do not worry.
