Most abnormal blinking or twitching of the eye clears up quickly , within a few hours of when the symptoms appear. Similarly, if the eye feels tired or dry or the eyelid feels heavy, the problems usually go away quite quickly. If the blinking or eyelid twitching does not respond to treatment or is continuously blinking for a few days, possible cause is an eye dystonia (the medical term for this is Blepharospasm)or Weak Eyesight. Symptoms include increased blinking and involuntary closure of the eyelids. Also sometimes the eye feels tired or dry or the eyelid heavy. The symptoms of eye dystonia vary and may be one or more of the following: Excessive / uncontrollable blinking Twitching around the eyes where the twitching does not go away Dry or gritty eyes, but where the treatment for dry eyes does not work Sensitivity to bright lights and sunshine. For some people the flickering of a television or computer screen can also trigger the spasms The eyelids feel heavy frequently or the eyes feel tired and these feelings don't go away. Symptoms may become more obvious and troublesome when tired, reading, stressed, driving, or around bright lights and sunshine, or in windy or dusty environments. Eye dystonia commonly appears in people between the ages of 50 and 70 but does sometimes affect younger people. It is one form of dystonia – a condition that causes uncontrollable and often painful muscle contractions believed to be as a result of incorrect messages from the brain to the muscles. Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder Homoeopthic medicine GELSEMIUM 30 ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 1 drop direct on tongue evert 1-3 hrly depending upon frequency of blinking eyes. If problem persists even after usage of this medicine for 5 days,consult an Eyespecialist first to rule out weak eyesight and if Eyesight found out to be normal then consult a Neurologisst.

Usually redness in eyes on waking up is due to dryness. Also eye strain can cause redness. It will be good if you consult an ophthalmologist. Good wishes.

Is that pain associated with redness, diminution of vision or any other symptoms? if yes then it's of infective origin. Else if none of these present and you are using /not using glasses in either case get your refraction done. May be the number might have changed. If your vision is normal, you have to go for orthoptic checkups which may be probable cause for asthenopic symptoms.

Get your refraction done and wear spectacles Eat green veggies. Carrots. Strain less your eyes. Relax your eyes in between work. Blink regularily if working for long time on computer. Lower the brightness of your screen. Work under adequately illuminated conditions. If needed wear corrective spectacles. These r few things you can take care of. Otherwise as such no options available which wd increases your eyesight.

Dear, if you are unable to see objects clearly from left eye, you need to get your vision tested for any refraction error and corrective spectacles can be worn for that. Please see an opthalmologist for detailed examination of eye including slit lamp for any other pathology of cornea etc.

Get to know about BLADE FREE LASIK , STANDARD LASIK , ADVANCED SURFACE PRK and PHAKIC ICLS . These are the techniques that can help you gain freedom form your glasses.

If you are using glasses, are 18 years or older , have to wear glasses and wish to seek treatment for your glasses , you need to read on.


Brief information about LASIK Laser Vision Correction

What does Laser vision correction do ?

Laser vision correction is a technique used for the correction of spectacle number being worn by the patient . This treatment enables the patient to see clearly without glasses.

Who are the likely candidates for laser vision correction ?

Patients of Myopia ( wearing minus glasses ) , Hypermetropia ( wearing plus glasses ) with or without astigmatism are suitable candidates for laser vision correction. In addition , the patient must have achieved 18+ age and his/her spectacle number must have remained stable for 6-12 months .

What types of eye glass numbers can be treated ?

We can treat :

(-) Minus numbers

(+) Plus numbers

& Cylindrical numbers

What are the different techniques for correcting eye glasses ?

Beyond using glasses and contact lenses , there are basically two different ways of correcting the number of glasses.

1. Laser Vision Correction popularly known as LASIK

2. ICL or Phakic Lenses

Are there more than one techniques of Laser vision correction ?

Yes , there are different techniques to correct glasses with Laser

1. PRK / LASEK / ASA

2. Microkeratome based LASIK

3. Bladefree LASIK

The choice of technique for a particular patient depends upon the suitability determined after assessing the various parameters of the eyes with Pentacam topography which tells us about the thickness of the cornea amongst many other details. Depending upon the number of your eye glasses and calculating it against the corneal thickness helps us deriving the technique(s) available for your eyes specifically .

Bladefree LASIK utilizes two different lasers for doing laser vision correction .

Bladefree Lasik workstation with the Femtosecond Laser on the left , the Excimer laser on the right and a swinging patient bed which shifts the patient between these two lasers.

What is ICL ?

If after detailed checking ,corneal thickness is inadequate to carry out Laser vision correction , then ICL phasic intraocular lens implantation is considered as the final frontier.

With the ICL , very high numbers can be corrected quite accurately. Here also we have to test the patient suitability for ICL implantation.


How long do I need to stay in the Hospital for Laser vision correction ?

For PRK you may need to stay for approximately 6 days

For Normal LASIK , approximately 3 days

For Bladefree LASIK , approximately 3 days.

Local patients can reside at home.

Cancer can have many symptoms depending on where the cancer has arisen from. For example, if there is a lung cancer, it can present as coughing with lot of sputum or blood. It may present as a lump or swelling like in breast cancer, etc prevention is always better than cure. So it is always wise to prevent things that cause cancer, eg. Smoking. Any cancer if detected early, can be treated ususally. So we should be more aware and guarded. It is not necessary that a person has diabetes if he/she has cancer. I hope that helps you.

Carrots and other orange-colored fruits and vegetables promote eye health and protect vision, : Beta-carotene, a type of vitamin A that gives these foods their orange hue, helps the retina and other parts of the eye to function smoothly.
