-1.50 or +1.50. If your distance sight is normal, your reading glasses should be plus power. Continue with genteal eye drops and get your eye sight tested again. I think you need change of glasses.

I have allergies and my eyes are affected the most. They're puffy, red and itchy. What can I do?

I have allergies and my eyes are affected the most. They're puffy, red and itchy. What can I do?
Hello. I think you have allergic conjunctivitis. 1. Eye allergies, called allergic conjunctivitis, are a common condition that occurs when the eyes react to something that irritates them (called an allergen). 2. 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 a. Avoid or limit contact with the substance causing the problem. B. 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 medicine that can cure allergy. Only way is to stay away from all those things that you are allergic to.

If I smell my own armpits then I get sex mood y If I see girls blouse after that I were why It's normal or eels.

If I smell my own armpits then I get sex mood y
If I see girls blouse after that I were why
It's normal or eels.
There are many men who get aroused by the smell of their own sweat.....and this is NORMAL....perhaps you like what you smell...... Its an inborn thing, perhaps you may have men aged your age who may not like their armpit smell.....this is ok too, or perhaps they are not keeping it hygenic.......and hence they get put off by the smell..... so its okay to have some arousal and sexy mood after smelling your own body part or armpit If you a girls blouse and want to wear it, it could signify that you like to cross dress ........THIS doesnot make you GAY!!!! Please remember while growing up there are many signals which create a deep impact on our psyche and it moulds our behaviour. At your age of 20, it is perfectly natural to have "ambisexual or bisexual beahviour and tendencies" Even if a man have sex with men it doesnt make him gay, it is just a passing phase. If you indulge in this cross dressing and make it a habit to masturbate ONLY after doing this ded, it may make you a bit uncomfortable to masturbate when the "blouse" is not there..... So dont fall into the trap......keep it away as far as possible and try to enjoy your sex and arousal at masturbation WITHOUT wearing the blouse....... DONT make it a habit. or it will be difficult to leave it later when u marry

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 as your age is now 15 years so your number will not increase much 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 it's allergic or infective in origin ie allergic or infective conjunctivitis. Which has simple treatment protocol. But still its wise to get a check up done with an ophthalmologist for a thorough slit lamp examination to rule out other differentials for acute red eye.

Myopia is near sightedness. Means you cannot see far objects clearly. Reasons: 1. Increase in axial length of eyeball 2. Increase in curvature of cornea 3. Lens changes etc. This is natural phenomenon and treatment is glasses/contact lens/lasik.

I have cataract in both my eyes. The left eye has more blurring. The doctors recommended that the cataract should mature for operating it. however I have been told that now it is not necessary for the cataract and pin hole laser surgery can be done at any stage. What is it's cost and where can I get it done at a economic rate. I am an activist and have not earned for last 20 years and devout my entire time for various causes. I live in Delhi NCR.

MBBS, MS - Ophthalmology

As you told sir that you want cheaper cost so best is that you go for phaco surgery but it is preferred that cataract should not be hypermature as it can lead to complications. In case of hypermature cataract, femtolaser surgery can be done but it is way too costly for you and of not much benefits.
