I have eyes which look always sleepy and which do not give good impression about me. Even though I am a normal person with healthy habits this one aspect gives me a feeling of inadequacy. How to rectify this?

Hi. Do the following Exercises for eyes: Warm your eyes. Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Repeat this three times. Roll your eyes. Start by looking up and then slowly circle 10 times clockwise and 10 times counterclockwise. Focus. Hold a pen at arm's length, focus your eyes on it, and slowly bring the pen closer until it's about 6 inches away from your nose. Then slowly move it back, keeping your eyes focused on the pen, 10 times in all. Massage your temples. Using your thumb knuckles, massage your temples in small circles, 20 times in one direction and 20 in the other. Repeat the same actions above the mid-point of the eyebrows at the forehead, then below the eyes on both sides of the bridge of the nose. Take a mini-nap. Put your head back, close your eyes, and relax for 3 minutes. Insufficient sleep may weaken your vision, so shoot for 8 hours of sound sleep a night. Rest your eyes 10 minutes for every 50 minutes spent reading or in front of the computer. If your eyes feel overly tired, lie down and place cooling cucumber slices over your eyelids. Medication: Use Euphrasia eye drops twice daily.

Hi, I hope all the required tests have been performed to confirm glaucoma. If it is surely a case of glaucoma then you have to use the prescribed drops lifelong and go for regular follow up to your eye specialist. If you eye pressure is kept under control then you will not face any major eye problem.

The solution for this problem is its reduced usage and while using computor use in proper light. There is nothing more effective than controlling usage to reduce and negate the effects. You can also reduce the intensity of the computor screen by attaching a filter or by getting an eye-friendly screen. Above all, one must try to reduce the amount of computor usage or take frequent breaks.(blink often during breaks as blinking refreshes and replenishes your eyes naturally)---- homoeopathic medicine------ cinelube eye drops (hapdco) pour 2 drops 3 times daily.---------- take proper ssleep during the day-------------------

What can I do to improve my eye power? My left eye is weaker then the right side.
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 22 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.

Hello , according to me you should take Homoeopathic treatment because it can treat both your problems red watery eyes and headaches. You need to mention more of your symptoms for the prescription of treatment, because Homoeopathy treats the patient as a whole. Now you can use Euphrasia 10 %, eye drops, 2 drops in each eye, twice daily.

I am having itching in my eyes when I use my mobile. Please suggest some solution.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
I am having itching in my eyes when I use my mobile. Please suggest some solution.
Mobile screen is made up of hundreds of tiny pixels that are constantly moving. Our eyes in turn are not naturally able to set focus on these constantly moving pixels, and hence we try to focus on an area behind the actual screen. Therefore, in order to work on a mobile, our eyes need to keep on fluctuating focus between their natural point of focus and the pixels on the screen. And this tires the eyes and causes a lot of wear and tear.As a result, we suffer from irritation, which may range from a number of things like headaches, dry eyes, blurred vision, problems in focusing and faulty color perception, to something as severe as glaucoma. The electromagnetic waves that are emitted by a mobile phone can be extremely damaging to the eyes. It has been studied and well documented that these cell phone waves can have a damaging effect on the various parts of the eye, including the retina and the cornea. Moreover, they can cause cataract too.Moreover it is more distressing for our eyes to view contents on a tiny screen which requires even more concentration and extenive usage of eyes without blinking thus causing Eye dryness making them vulnerable to frequent Eye problemss. . The solution for this problem I its reduced usage and while uing mobiles use them inproper light. There is nothing more effective than controlling usage to reduce and negate the effects. You can also reduce the intensity of the mobile’s screen by attaching a filter or by getting an eye-friendly screen. Above all, one must try to reduce the amount of mobile usage or take frequent breaks. Homoeopathic medicine CINELUBE EYEDROPS ( HAPDCO) Pour 2 drops 3 times daily.

I have a red eye from morning. What could be the reason ?

DNB (ENT), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist,
Hi. This could be due to conjunctivitis or an allergy. Applying artificial tears 2-3 drops twice a day will help clean the conjunctiva. See an ophthalmologist for an evaluation.

After changing medical treatment for glaucoma, it is recommended to u an eye pressure checked after 3-4 weeks to ensure IOP is less than target eye pressure. Blurred vision could be due to advanced glaucoma, uncorrected refractive error, development of cataract or simply dry eye or unhealthy ocular surface or allergies. Add a tear substitute...If it does not help revisit ur treating eye doctor.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user. Sir your headache is most probably related to your weak eyes. So I will strongly advise you get an eye check up done and then take the required actions.
