Am a 25yr old female. Me have astigmatism. What all are precautions to be taken?

Phaco Development Program, Fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology, DNB Ophtalmology, MBBS
Ophthalmologist,
Wear glasses regularly. Avoid rubbing your eyes. Contact lens is also a good option but get it from a reputed ophthalmologist as for astigmatism you will need special lenses called toric lenses which need to be fitted for your eye and trial given for few hours before a final pair is ordered.

There is a general problem were I had to rub my eyes and ears continuously. Do know why it is happening.

There is a general problem were I had to rub my eyes and ears continuously. Do know why it is happening.
Rubbing of the eyes has multiple causes associated with it. To enumerate a few common causes: (1) allergy of the eye. It is usually caused by improper eye hygiene. There is a tendency to rub the eyes with fingers, handkerchief, cloth, etc. This is not a good habit because it tends to transmit lots of virus, bacteria and dust into the eye. Allergy usually presents with symptoms of watering (clear water), redness and itching of the eye. (2) infectious conjunctivitis: this is usually associated with white-yellowish discharge. If so, it would be a good idea to go and show to an eye specialist in person. (3) foreign body lodged in the eye. This is more commonly associated with people who drive 2 wheeler vehicles without protection. It occurs more commonly in one eye. Foreign bodies that commonly get lodged are eyelashes, insect wings, small insects, dust particles, iron particles (more common with people working in the iron industry) the solution for a foreign body lodged in the eye would be better provided by an eye specialist at the clinic. (4) inflammation of the coats of the eyeball. This is known as" uveitis" it is also a relatively less common condition. There is associated pain. It would require a thorough eye checkup including the retina-thus a good idea would be to visit the eye specialist in person. From the symptoms described by you, it seems more likely to be a case of allergy. Maintaining the precautions and hygiene that I mentioned should probably work well for you. You could also use a lubricant eye drop along with an anti-histamine eye drop. (3-4 times daily) hope my suggestions helped you. Take care.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, you are most probably suffering from computer vision syndrome. You must use corrective spectacles with anti-glare coating, screen should at working distance, adjust brightness, contrast and font size according to your convenience. Use lubricating eye drops frequently to avoid dryness of eyes.

Sir I am 22 years old and suffering from eye weakness and currently having a specs 1.5 please suggest me a better diet.

Sir I am 22 years old and suffering from eye weakness and currently having a specs 1.5 please suggest me a better diet.
Hello lybrate-user. Let me enumerate the diet necessary for healthy eyes. (1) green leafy vegetables including spinach, sprouts, cabbage, beetroot. (2) fruits-blue-berries, black-berries, strawberries, raspberries, kiwi fruit, grapes, pineapple, pomegranate, grapes, guava. (3) dry-fruits: almonds, walnuts, apricots, dates. (4) cereals: oats, barley, millets. (5) drink a cup of green tea daily. (6) drink a glass of milk daily. The basic essence to healthy eyes is in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. In addition to a proper diet, a proper posture and proper sleep patterns are essential. Also, addiction to tobacco and smoking tends to harm the eyes in a bad manner. These should be refrained. Thus, maintain a diet rich in antioxidants. These substances are present in good proportions in the previously mentioned list. Hope my suggestions helped you.

Dear lybrate-user, do not worry about the sleepless night. 1. Do not get tense or anxious for any matters 2. Be calm and relax yourself in all stressful issues 3. Do not take much caffeine at evening. 4. Do not watch the tv late night 5. Do not hang yourself in too much time with mobile and laptop 6. Finish your dinner by 8 pm and go to bed by 10 pm 7. Do not eat too much, beyond your threshold level at night, do not eat much spicy or oily or fatty food at night 8. While going to sleep, calm your mind - relax and sleep do not take any medicine for sleep, than you will be addicted to it.

It's a myth. Eye power is not affected by diet, exercise or supplements. These may improve the eyes auto-focus and result in some apparent benefit. The saliva has a good number of bacteria present. It may cause infections.

Hii, when at home or anywhere sometimes I continiously keep closing my eyes again and again because of the air of fan etc. And water comes continiously and I feels to rub my eyes again and again. I m facing this problem from many months.

Ophthalmologist, Delhi
It could be due to mild dryness due to high flow air striking your eyes. You can try some lubricating drops in that case after getting it examined to rule out any other causal factor.

I have red eyes when I ride bike with open eyes and eye tear drop frequently. What can I do and what presumption I take?

I have red eyes when I ride bike with open eyes and eye tear drop frequently. What can I do and what presumption I take?
Eyes water because , while driving the rate at which the eye dries up increases , hence of rate of secretion of tears also goes up. since we are not driving at a constant speed there is a mismatch between the tear secretion and eyes drying up . our body always tries to over perform. this over secreted tears is too much to handle by the normal tear route from the eyes to the nose. hence the excess tears overflow leading to watering.So it is a normal process.Dont worry about this.Your eyes are normal.But wear goggles while driving

While you are using the desktop or laptop your blinking rate decreases by half the normal blinks per minute, which indirectly decreases the nutrition to you eye, leading to dry eye syndrome in the long run. Blink blink blink.

Glaucoma prevention not help full any idea to fix this. When I can stop drops? How can I get relief? Please suggest something.

MS - Ophthalmology, FICO, FRCS - I & II
Ophthalmologist, Mathura
Dear patient yes to prevent glaucoma is very difficult but what is required is regular checkup of vision and eye pressure (intra ocular pressure) by eye specialist after the age of 40 years specially if you have family history of glaucoma. If glaucoma is diagnosed early and treatment started loss of vision is reversible and vision is stabilized. How to fix glaucoma depends on type of glaucoma. Silent or painless glaucoma also known as chronic simple glaucoma, painful glaucoma (acute congestive glaucoma. In first type patient does not know till late as no pain so diagnosis is delayed. But in acute type it is diagnosed early so vision is restored fast. Many tests are required to confirm the diagnosis of glaucoma and type of glaucoma like eye pressure measurement, automated visual field analysis, fundus exam specially optic disc, corneal thickness, retinal nerve fiber thickness around optic disc and gonioscopy. Once glaucoma is diagnosed use of anti glaucoma eye drops are life long under supervision usually causing lot of financial burden on patient that, s why glaucoma surgery is done bit early to reduce medications but this is case specific. You will get relief by properly following doctor, s advise. Normally first medical treatment is started. Many anti glaucoma eye drops and tablets (diamox) are there, best decided by eye specialist. If eye pressure is controlled by medications usually medications are life long but in very select cases surgery is done to control eye pressure. One of common side effect of long use of anti glaucoma eye drops is dry eye which also need to be tackled with eye soothing eye drops like refresh tears. Hope this answers your query about glaucoma.
