My mother had the operation of motiyabind for one eye at near 40 years of age and then almost after one year motiyabind operation for the second eye. Is it too early at this age to have this operation? If yes, then what could be the possible cause for motiyabind operation being too early?

Hi. It's a myth unless you come in direct contact with the discharge from the eyes or in case it's there in the air in suspended form, then the chances of getting infection are high!

Does eye sight decreases? I have short sight of +1.0 is it decreases? Please advise.
Normally +1 may disappear when you grow as the eye ball grows. Ayurveda therapies and medications do help in such stages to improve your vision without glasses.

I got swelling under my eyes when I woke in the morning. Can you tell me the reason.

I got swelling under my eyes when I woke in the morning. Can you tell me the reason.
Puffiness beneath the eyelids has various causes associated with it. (1) age related distribution of fat. With progressive time and age there occurs a re-distribution of a lot of body fat. This may lead to puffiness/ sagging/ bagginess of the lower eyelids. (2) excessive alcohol consumption has at times seen to be associated with puffiness of eyelids. (3) hypersensitivity/ allergy of the eyes may cause puffiness. It may be caused due to dust, pollen, insect bite, etc. (4) thyroid level fluctuation has at times been seen to be associated with puffiness of eyelids. (5) excessive obesity has been shown to be associated with puffiness of eyelids. (6) extreme condition such as orbital cellulitis: very rare. Also, it is usually associated with eye injury, surgery, systemic infection, etc. It is very less likely to be so in your case. (7) grave's disease: this has a tendency to be associated with thyroid disease (or other autoimmune conditions). It s also rare. It is associated with fatigue and weakness that progresses throughout the day. Thus, it would be a good idea to identify in the category that you come into and then tackle the situation. The reason for this being that each cause would have a different pattern of treatment. Let me know if I can be of further help. Hope my suggestions helped you.

Either you go for change in the specs and get the new one done or you can go for LASIK surgery to remove the number of eyes. Take care.

Tell me about the available treatment for retinitis pigmentosa, Is there any hope for future? Is it hereditary? What is the percentage of its transmission to consecutive generation?

MD - Ophthalmology

As of now there is no treatment known to benefit those with RP. Extensive research is ongoing in many centres for stem cell therapy it artificial retina. No headway yet! However if there is an associated disease they can be corrected.

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

Hellolybrate-user. Operations done to remove the refractive error (power) of the eyes are known as refractive surgery (lasik). There are certain basic criteria that most patients need to fulfill before they can safely undergo refractive surgery. To enumerate, they are: (1) stability of refraction: the power of the eyes should have become stable for a period of 1.5 years minimum without any change. (2) curvature of the cornea should be tested by a technique which is known as topography. (3) thickness of the cornea should be measured by a test known as pachymetry. The minimum thickness required is 550 microns. (4) dilated retina evaluation: this is one of the most important tests that should be performed by a trained retina specialist. This test helps in detection of any offensive lesion on the central or peripheral retina. In case of any retinal abnormality, these should be treated before undergoing the surgery for number reduction. (5) there should be no pre-existent corneal abnormality. (example: corneal scar, opacity, defect, etc.) another important suggestion is that whenever you go for the assessment (the above mentioned tests), you should discontinue the use of contact lenses at least 4 weeks prior to the assessment. The reason for this being that use of contact lens temporarily alters the contour of the cornea. It takes around 3-4 weeks for the restoration of the original corneal contour after removal of the contact lens. Another important point is that you, as a patient, should be compliant to put post operative medication in your eyes for at least 2 months. There is bound to be some discomfort, watering, foreign body sensation, pain after the surgery in most cases-you should be ready to tolerate that. A leave from work for 7-10 days after the surgery should be generally sufficient. Last but not the least, you should set realistic expectations from this surgery. Though extremely rare, there is a remote possibility that the surgery may need to be repeated. Also, the need for subsequent treatment for the eye may be required. Thus, you should be compliant enough to trust and follow your eye specialist. In case you have any other queries, feel free to contact me. Hope my suggestions help you, take care, regards.

My eyes are getting weak day by day. What type of exercise should I do to increase my eye sight?
None, exercise won't help. By weakness I suppose you mean deterioration of vision. This could be either refractory or pathological. If refractory proper testing and glasses will do but if pathological the ophthalmologist may find out.

Yes these are the symptoms associated with a dust allergy. When the eyes are very watery or turn red the allergy may have increased - for this you need to take anti - allergic eye drops. However there are many types of drops and which one you need will be decided once an eye surgeon has examined you. Occasionally, anti allergic tablets maybe helpful during the acute phase.

I met with an accident due to which I had eye surgery (vitrectomy, IOL). Due to this accident I now have low eye pressure (9 mmHg). Is there any way to increase eye pressure naturally or through surgery? Due to this low pressure I have blurred vision.

MBBS, MS - Ophthalmology
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
The low pressure could be due to ciliary shock which should be ruled out on examination before giving any treatment. Kindly visit your ophthalmologist to get it evaluated.
