Keep blinking: It washes your eyes in naturally therapeutic tears. Normally a person blinks 15 times/min, but while working on a computer, the blink rate comes down to 5 times /min because of continuous staring at the screen. Remember 20-20-20: Every 20 minutes, spend 20 seconds looking at something 20 feet away, minimum. Get the right light: Good lighting isn’t just flattering – it’s healthy for your eyes. So, keep bright lighting overhead to a minimum. Keep your desk lamp shining on your desk, not you. Try to keep window light off to the side, rather than in front or behind you. Use blinds and get a glare screen. Position the computer screen to reduce reflections from windows or overhead lights. Monitor your monitor: Keep it at least 20 inches from your eyes. Center should be about 4 to 6 inches below your eyes. Also, make sure it’s big enough and with just the right brightness and contrast. Adjust the screen so you look at it slightly downward and are about 24 to 28 inches away. Adjust the screen settings to where they are comfortable — contract polarity, resolution, flicker, etc. Wear those computer glasses: Your doctor can prescribe a pair of eyeglasses just for viewing the computer screen well. If necessary, wear the appropriate corrective lenses while at the computer.

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.

Hi there is no way one can keep a cataract small or not allow it to grow. Over next few weeks to months it will develop and then it has to be operated. Restricted diet helps in controlling blood sugar. When blood sugar is control fasting should be closer to 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%, 7 if this is achieved, then that is good. Basically avoid sweets, deep fried food, junk foods, pastries and sweetened aerated drinks. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads, permitted fruits (100 g a day). Use whole grain products and whole grain flour for roti and chapati. Diet should provide exact calories based on your weight, extent of daily exercise and blood sugar levels. With regards.

So,my suggestion for you is visit a local doctor for an eye check up as a final examination can only be made after physical examination.

Is there any way with the help of which we can remove specs from our eyes and our eyes can get normal again. I have also heard of the news which says that Stem Cells in your eyes can RESTORE your vision, Said by the scientists from City-based L.V. Prasad Eye Institute in collaboration with U.S. Scientists who claimed to have discovered potent stem cells in the eye that possess the ability to restore lost eye sight (HYDERABAD). If you don't believe me then you can find this news in the HINDU NEWSPAPER dated 12th December 2014 (page no. 5). I am an IAS aspirant, that's why I know about this. PLEASE REPLY.

Hi , You have got the correct information, but this stem cell therapy is not required for those vision is correctable by spectacles; this kind is only a refractive error, which means a variation (not disease or defect) in the focusing mechanism of the eye which can be overcome by spectacles or contact lenses. On the other hand, stem cell treatment shall bring great hope to people whose retina is not properly developed or not at all developed or severely damaged, and is not amenable to existing medical or surgical therapies. The research is still in its infancy, but when it becomes available for the common man, it sure brings joy to several people who would need that treatment. Meanwhile, for those above 18 years of age, spectacle dependence can be eliminated by Laser vision correction methods (LASIK, LASEK, etc) or by Implantable lenses (inside the eyes, example ICL). Hope I am clear.

Hello, Bloodshot eyes appear red because the vessels at the surface of the white portion of the eye become swollen. Vessels may swell due to: Eye dryness Too much sun exposure Dust or other particles in the eye Allergies Infection Injury Eye infections or inflammation can cause redness as well as possible itching, discharge, pain, or vision problems. Other causes of eye redness include Colds or allergies, Acute glaucoma, Corneal scratches: Injuries caused by sand, dust, or overuse of contact lenses. Sometimes, a bright red spot, called a subconjunctival hemorrhage, will appear on the white of the eye. This often happens after straining or coughing, which causes a broken blood vessel on the surface of the eye. Most often, there is no pain and your vision is normal. It is almost never a serious problem. Because the blood leaks into the conjunctiva, which is clear, you cannot wipe or rinse the blood away. Like a bruise, the red spot will go away within a week or two. Management: - Try to rest your eyes if redness is due to fatigue or eye strain. No other treatment is needed. - Wash your hands, hold clean water in your hand, keep your eyes closer to the water and dip the eyes by blinking the eyelids frequently in the held water in hand. Repeat it for 3-4 times again. - Avoid watching T. V. Working on computer or mobile, reading or frequently keep blinking your eyes to avoid dryness. Take frequent breaks in between. - In case there is itching, use a clean napkin or a tissue to wipe the tears and cleaning the eyelids gently. -Wear an UV-rays protected sunglasses while you are out in sun. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe’s Belladonna 30 and Euphrasia 30 - both thrice daily for 4 days. Use Euphrasia Eye drops twice daily. Revert back thereafter.

Homoeopathic cream ANTIMARKS CREAM ( BIOVALLEY) Apply twice daily in circular fashion Dark spots are primarily caused by acne, blemishes and black heads. The percentage of dark spots increases as the exposure to the sun increases too. Since the rate of melanin would be decreases, it leads in turn to the darkening of the skin. So, apply sunscreen (Homoeopathic SUNCARE cream of BAKSON Company) , every time you go out and follow the recipes below in order to get relief from dark spots. Instead of using the chemical products for your skin, try using some natural home remedies. Using home remedies can work out to be much cheaper than chemical based products and they can help treat your condition without any side effects. Caring for your skin is highly important. Here are some home remedies that allow your skin to be free of dark spots, black spots or pimple marks or even acne scars on the face. 1.Take a medium sized tomato and squeeze the juice from it, add one tablespoon of lemon juice to the tomato juice and stir the mixture well. Apply on the face and let it dry for 20 minutes. Rinse the face with warm water. 2.Take pulp from Aloe Vera leaves and let it dry in the sun for 5 minutes and then add few drops of lemon juice to the dried pulp. Apply this mixture on the face and wash it off after 15 minutes. The results are quite good. The solution for this problem is its reduced usage and while using computor use in proper light. There is nothing more effective than controlling usage to reduce and negate the effects. You can also reduce the intensity of the computor screen by attaching a filter or by getting an eye-friendly screen. Above all, one must try to reduce the amount of computor usage or take frequent breaks. Homoeopathic medicine CINELUBE EYE DROPS ( HAPDCO) Pour 2 drops 3 times daily.

Hello. There is no medication or food for improving eye sight or to get rid of glasses. Get your vision tested and wear glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser 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. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

Red eye has many causes. You have to see if it is associated with blurring of vision, pain, discharge and other complaints. But commonly its allergic or infective in origin ie allergic or infective conjunctivitis. Which has simple treatment protocol. But still its wise to see an ophthalmologist for a thorough slit lamp examination to rule out other differentials for red eye.
