One of my close relations had the side of her mouth twisted a bit to the right and it affects the mouth and the eye alike to the extent that water drops from the affected eye often and could not chew normally. What is the cause of this, and what is the prescription or remedy?

You may also be asked to give a blood sample. Blood testing can measure your vitamin A and glucose levels. Night blindness caused by nearsightedness, cataracts, or vitamin A deficiency is treatable. Corrective lenses, such as eyeglasses or contacts, can improve nearsighted vision both during the day and at night.

After cataract operation my husband has heaviness/drowsiness in the head/eyes esp. In the evenings. He is a very nervous person and after the operation he has become worse. Does not want to go anywhere, impatient in a traffic and wants to return back. He has to do the second eye operation. Soon but looking to his condition I feel apprehensive.

I have allergies. My eyes are itching and watery. They are always red and feels sneezing every morning. please help?
Hello. I think you have allergic conjunctivitis and allergic rhinitis. 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 you I am very sorry dear to say that there is no drug that can cure allergy. Only way is to stay away from all those things that you are allergic to. For allergic rhinitis. Consult ent specilist.

Hi. I am experiencing eye twitching since around 2 years. It happens only in the right eye. Have been taking homeopathy medicines for the same. There has been 20-30% improvement but not any further. Off late lower part of my right cheek just above the lips has also started twitching. The whole thing is really bothering me. Is there any treatment for this? please advice.

U might be having involuntary movement, need to examine. Visit neurologist before it increases. You can send short video clip of it, then it will help to diagnose.

There is no medication or food for improving eyesight or to get rid of glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser as your age is now 18 years so 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. As you are not comfortable with contact lens then go for lasik. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

I am having redness, foreign body sensation and irritation in both eyes since last 6 months. Initially, it was diagnosed as allergy/conjunctivitis. Subsequently, it was diagnosed as Trachoma due to concretions under both eyelids which were later removed surgically. However, now a new problem of involuntary blinking has started. The problem increases while driving or in sun. Is this Dystonia? How to get rid of this problem?

Hello involuntary blinking of both eyes suggests blepharospasm. Most common cause of this is dry eyes. You should use lubricating eyedrop frequently. I would suggest you to consult local ophthalmologist and get proper ophthalmic check up.

Ophthalmologist Vs. Optometrists

M.S., MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
Ophthalmologist Vs. Optometrists

Eyes are the most important part of our lives. There are various branches of medicine, which treat different aspects of the eye. Chief among them are: 

  1. Ophthalmology
  2. Optometry

Ophthalmology deals with the structure, physiology and diseases of the eye. On the other hand, optometry is a vision care science, which involves the treatment and rectification of the visual system. Specialists emerging from these two schools of medicines are called Ophthalmologists and optometrists respectively. Though, they both deal with the corrective measures and examination of healthy eyes, there are crucial differences between them.

Some of those differences are listed below:

  1. Meaning: A specialist in surgical and medical eye problems, who performs operations in the eye is called an Ophthalmologist. On the other hand, an Optometrist is a specialist who has a degree in Doctor of Optometry (OD). He is not a doctor but a trained individual.   
  2. Area of Specialization: Both these specialists have different areas of specialization. An Ophthalmologist specializes in only vision and eye care. He/she has the necessary training to perform operations on the eye. On the other hand, an Optometrist is not a doctor, but a specialist who is involved in diagnosis, management and treatment of vision changes. He/she has the license to perform eye exams and tests and can prescribe corrective lenses.
  3. Training: Both the specialists differ vastly in their training. An Ophthalmologist is trained to treat all eye problems and is equipped to perform operations. He/she undergoes four years of medical school and one year of internship in any hospital. Optometrists on the other hand, after three or more years in college have to undergo four years of training before receiving a doctor of Optometrist. (OD).
