Dear lybrate user, red eyes could be because of many reasons but commonly it is due to allergy or infection. You need to visit eye specialist to differentiate between the two as the treatment is different. Also get your eyes checked for any glass power

There is a possibility that you might be gay. But just watching gay videos do not make you gay. So it is advisable to talk to your psychiatrist or a counsellor to know more about your own sexuality and get more clarity about it. It is very important for you to understand and accept your sexual inclination. If you are gay and are unable to accept it, it will be difficult for you to live heterosexual life. Please understand that, being gay is not a crime. Please seek professional help.

This might be floater which is due to vitreous (gel in eye) liquifaction it will not cause any visual damage to eye there is no treatment for floater. Only treatment is to just avoid them in case there are multiple floaters then consult retina specilist.

My friend is having a problem with her eye. During exams or while using laptops for a long time a swelling similar to a pimple appears on the eyelid and it gradually becomes big. She went to some doctors and had some ointment and antibiotics. But still she is not fully cured. Sometime mucus formation is also there inside.

I am a 31 year old male. And have spectacles. - 3. 5 on each eye. I am in a dilemma that is it 100% safe to have a lasic surgery done. Is there even a 0. 01% chance that the surgery may not be correct?

MBBS, MS - Ophthalmology
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
One is always at some risk. Nothing is 100% ideally. We are always at risk while crossing a road, that doesn' t mean should not cross the road. For that, one can take precaution to avoid that small risk. So there is always some (very small) risk while doing lasik, but for that we always pre operative work-up to see whether one' s eye is eligible and ready for lasik surgery or not. You should not be afraid of lasik as many people go for it and had great response after operation. So you can go for it comfortably

Try frequent voluntary blinking, resting (closing) your eyes for short breaks during work, drinking plenty of water, using lubricant eye drops, etc. Better still, get checked up by an ophthalmologist and get proper advice.

If you are having cataract ,you should go for phaco-emulsification with foldable lens (acryosof IQ ),you can have distance vision 6/5 without glass if properly lens power calculated before surgery. LASIK is not advisable once you are above 40 years old & you are having cataract also, with regards.

I have red eyes over 7 days. What should I do? I already used eye drops but no use.
Care of eyes- you have not described the problems with your eyes. Continuously reading small print without proper light should be avoided. Smart phone may cause strain. Don't expose your eyes to extreme sunny weather of cold windy weather. Don't be closer to people with eye infections as you may contact the infection. Get your eyes tested for any vision problem. We have effective treatment in homoeopathy for your problem. Take belladonna200 ---once daily in the morning for 5 days.

I have red eyes, felt week and felt pain in whole body and have little more fever.
Is this viral fever?
Fever is not considered medically significant until body temperature is above 100.4 F (38 C). Fever serves as one of the body's natural defenses against bacteria and viruses which cannot live at a higher temperatures..Also, the body's defense mechanisms seem to work more efficiently at a higher temperature -Fevers of 104 F (40 C) or more may be dangerous and demand immediate treatment The following medications may be used at home for mild fever : -Acetaminophen (dolo-650 mg) twice or thrice can be used to lower a fever . Aspirin should not be used in children during a viral illness. -Wear comfortable loose fitting clothes and donot overdress. Overdressing can cause the temperature to rise further. -Tepid water (85 F [30 C]) baths may help bring down a fever -The body should be cooled with a wet sponge. -Fever can cause dehydration.Drink plenty of fluids.Have citrus fruits, particularly Vitamin C rich ones like mausami,Amla juice etc. -Take light and easily digestible home cooked meals .avoid outside food -Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water especially before meals, or after returning from a public places or using public transport. -Further therapy depends on the cause of fever like urinary infection/typhoid or malaria/dengue infection and the accompanying symptoms that need to be investigated and treated accordingly

This i due to Dryness of eyes due to straining on eyes .While watching TV make sure that the lightening in room is proper and you are at least at a distance of 10 Feet from TV.If problem still persist then consult an Eye specialist for a local examination to rule out weak eyesight and then consult me.I will guide you with proper Diet,Exercises and Homoeopathic medicines and you will be relieved of your problems.For that time start using these homoeopathic eyedrops.

Hello. Maintain a right standing and sitting posture, keep your back always straight (even while sitting or standing), avoid carrying weight on back. Hold or carry weight divided equally in both the hands or shoulders (to avoid over straining on one particular hand or shoulder). Always select a chair with proper back support and hand-rest. (Excessive sitting or standing is to be avoided as well don’t carry much weight on shoulders). Apart from these, stress could be the major cause of pains! Exercise: Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. Management: -Sit straight with a back-rest or back-support. -Stretching or activities that place additional strain on the back are discouraged. -Sleeping with a pillow between the knees while lying on one side may increase comfort. -Lying on your back with a pillow under your knees would also relieves pain and no pillow under your head. -Some people seem to benefit from the use of ice or heat. Take care, do not use a heating pad on ‘high’ or place ice directly on the skin. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Arnica 200 and Rhus Tox. 200 - take both of them thrice daily for 1 week. Also, apply Schwabe's Topi-Arnica and Topi MP Gel on the affected area in circular motions gently thrice a day. Get back to me thereafter.

A chalazion is a cyst due to accumulated secretions from the glands of the eyelids. Hot compresses with a wet towel might help along with antibiotic and antiinflammatory medicines. However, if it does not reduce in size, you might need surgical intervention.
