I have my right side eyes is paining form last 5 to last day. What can I do for it.
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. Homoeopathy has effective treatment for your problem without adverse effects. Take belldonna 200 ---once daily in the morning for 5 days.

Inner corners of the eye are itchy from past 4-5 days. What can be done to avoid it?

Inner corners of the eye are itchy from past 4-5 days. What can be done to avoid it?
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. C. Use antiallergic eyedrop like olopat eyedrop twice daily d. Lubricating eyedrop like flogel thrice daily e. Use mild steroid like flurisone in pulse dose in severe allergy 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. This is a provisional diagnosis. Consult your ophthalmologist for detailed examination.

I haven't slept for 3 days. Now there are always tears coming from my eyes constantly. What should I do?

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
I haven't slept for 3 days. Now there are always tears coming from my eyes constantly. What should I do?
There are three possible reasons why your eye is streaming. First, your body could simply be producing too many tears. This is usually because the front surface of the eye is inflamed due to an ulcer or infection. It's not always easy to spot, but it can be treated with antibiotic drops. However, much more likely is a problem with the eye's drainage system, caused by a blockage in the punctum. This is the plughole through which tears drain off from the front of the eye. Each eye has a punctum in the upper lid and one in the lower lid, at the corner of your eye nearest your nose. You can easily see the inner punctum if you look closely in a mirror. A blockage can occur as a result of a cold or mild infection - the hole gets blocked with gunge. It can easily be sorted out by an eye specialist under a local anaesthetic - he will probe the punctum and clear it out. Alternatively, the pipework from the punctum could be blocked - again, perhaps with mucus - or it may be that the punctum is no longer correctly attached to the eyeball. This is common in older people, when the eyelid sags (usually due to stretching of the tissues, which lose elasticity as you age). As a result, the punctum no longer reaches to the surface of the eye, so it can't drain away the tears.

Hello. Get your eyes tested first. Include the following for getting better vision: Vitamins A, C, E, and minerals like copper and zinc are essential to eyesight. Get the antioxidants from dark leafy greens, egg yolks, yellow peppers, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Include garlic and onions. Blueberries, grapes as they have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help improve your vision. DHA is a fatty acid found in coldwater fish like salmon, sardines and mackerel. 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.

How to maintain a good health of eyes? I'm a heavy user of mobile and computer and I feel tiredness in eyes and I'm addicted to mastrubation to get some sleep.

Phaco Development Program, Fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology, DNB Ophtalmology, MBBS

Read about Computer vision syndrome and 20-20-20 rule. When you are using computers fir a long time due to sustained accommodation (changes in eye that happens when you focus for near) and reduced blink rate, the eyes get strained. So every 20 minutes you have to take a short break and see any object which is atleast 20feet (6meters) away from you for 20 seconds. Also see to that the air from AC/fans do not hit your eyes directly.

allergy can be controlled easily using eye drops. But there are many eye drops and specific eye drops can only be prescribed after seeing the eye clinically as treatment depends on severity. also dip a handkerchief in little cold water and keep over closed eyes.. you will feel better
