C3R operation of my left eye has vision, but is very fragile, please do what I tell me it should.

C3R operation of my left eye has vision, but is very fragile, please do what I tell me it should.
It’s important that patients are aware that C3R is a treatment not a cure. This means that you are likely to continue to need to wear glasses following your treatment, although the treatment should prevent your keratoconus from getting worse.Most patients with keratoconus should be suitable for treatment with C3R. There are a couple of exceptions to this. For example, if your keratoconus is particularly advanced then you might not be suitable to have the treatment, but your AVC consultant will discuss the alternative options with you. However, the majority of patients with progressive keratoconus should be fine to have the treatment.

Hi, there are Homoeopathic medicines which works well but the treatment depends upon the individual symptoms of the patient. Management:- Nutritional supplements may be helpful, Night blindness can be an early sign of vitamin A deficiency, often the result of a diet lacking in vegetables containing beta-carotene, which the body can make into vitamin A. Rich diet like milk ,animal liver and green leafy vegetables Vitamin supplements should be given to patient with vitamin A deficiency. Avoid driving at night. Wear sunglasses outside on bright days to protect against UVA light. So please consult a goosd Homoeopath physician.

Tips on How To Keep Eyes Healthy!

Tips on How To Keep Eyes Healthy!

Your eyes are an important part of your health. There are many things you can do to keep them healthy and make sure you are seeing your best. Follow these simple steps for maintaining healthy eyes well into your golden years.

  • Regular checkup: Get your eyes regularly checked once a year after the age of 40 years as it helps to detect age-related ocular changes like macular degeneration (the part of the retina that processes light deteriorates), cataracts (the lens of your eye becomes cloudy) and glaucoma (pressure in the eye damages the optic nerve). 
  • Eat Well: Eat healthy diet, include food rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Lutein, Zinc, etc. which includes all green, yellow and red vegetables, fruits and fish as it is rich in omega-3 fatty acid. All these food prevents early degeneration in eyes and also delays the onset of cataract. To get them, fill your plate with:
    • Green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale, and collards
    • Salmon, tuna, and other oily fish
    • Eggs, nuts, beans, and other nonmeat protein sources
    • Oranges and other citrus fruits or juices
    • Oysters and pork

A well-balanced diet also helps you stay at a healthy weight. That lowers your odds of obesity and related diseases like type 2 diabetes, which is the leading cause of blindness in adults.

  • First Eye Exam: Children should have their first eye exam between the ages of 6 and 12 months as it is important to detect visual problems as it is vital to ensure your child has the visual skills that that will have the ability to learn in school.
  • Healthy Lifestyle: Maintain a healthy lifestyle to prevent any eye damage due to diabetes, hypertension, etc.  
  • Quit Smoking: Quit smoking or don’t start as it is known that smoking increases the rate of macular degeneration and early cataract formation. It makes you more likely to get cataracts, damage to your optic nerve, and macular degeneration. If you've tried to kick the habit before only to start again, keep at it. The more times you try to quit, the more likely you are to succeed. Ask your doctor for help.
  • Wear Sunglasses: Always wear your corrected prescription as advised by your doctor Wear sunglasses/shades whenever you go out in sunlight as you need to protect your eyes from harmful UV radiation from the sun. The right pair of shades will help protect your eyes from the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays. Too much UV exposure boosts your chances of cataracts and macular degeneration. Choose a pair that blocks 99% to 100% of UVA and UVB rays.
  • Use Safety Eyewear: Use safety glasses while playing games like hockey, racquet ball to prevent eye injury. If you use hazardous or airborne materials on the job or at home, wear safety glasses or protective goggles. Look Away From the Computer Screen: Staring at a computer or phone screen for too long can cause:
    • Eyestrain
    • Blurry vision
    • Trouble focusing at a distance
    • Dry eyes
    • Headaches
    • Neck, back, and shoulder pain
  • Follow the Rule: If you are an avid screen reader/computer user follow the rule of 20/20/20 i.e. look at 20 feet distance, after every 20 minutes for 20 second. This will help your eyes to take rest and also improve the blinking rate for lubrication. 
  • To protect your eyes:
    • Make sure your glasses or contacts prescription is up to date and good for looking at a computer screen.
    • If your eye strain won’t go away, talk to your doctor about computer glasses.
    • Try to avoid glare from windows and lights. Use an anti-glare screen if needed.
    • If your eyes are dry, blink more.
    • Drink plenty of water to prevent dryness in your eyes. 
    • Wash your hands regularly and avoid touching eyes as much as possible to prevent eye infections and lumps (stye) in the lids. 
    • Don’t use any self-medication as some drops may contain steroid, and after long use of it can lead to cataract, glaucoma and infection in the eye. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a ophthalmologist.

Three Stages Of Age Related Macular Degeneration!

Three Stages Of Age Related Macular Degeneration!

Even something as small as an eyeball, has multiple parts within it. The retina at the back of the eye ball is responsible for the clarity of vision. The central area of the retina is known as the macula. Macular degeneration is the deterioration of this part of the retina. Macular degeneration is not incurable, if detected early, the wet form of macular gegeneration can be treated very effectively by the use of drugs which are given as an injection into the eye. People suffering from macular degeneration experience blurred vision, black spots and may eventually lose central vision while retaining peripheral vision.

There are two types of macular degeneration; wet and dry. The dry form of this disease is more common than its wet form. Of these, the latter causes more serious vision loss. Dry macular degeneration leads to white or yellow deposits on the retina leading to further degeneration. In the wet form of this disease, blood vessels beneath the retina start growing towards the macula and may pull it away from the base when they break or leak fluid.

There are three stages of age related macular degeneration (AMD).

- Early AMD

This is diagnosed by the presence of deposits on the retina. In most cases, ether is no vision loss at this stage but regular check-ups are essential.

- Intermediate AMD

A comprehensive eye exam will show the presence of larger deposits or pigment changes in the retina. At this stage, slight vision loss may be experienced.

- Late AMD

People suffering from late AMD have noticeable vision loss.
Though this disease is linked to aging, the exact triggers for macular degeneration are unknown. It is understood to be a combination of hereditary and environmental factors. The presence of certain genes and their variants has been associated with a number of cases of this disease. Studies also show that caucasions are at the highest risk of suffering from this disease. Depriving cells in the retina of oxygen can also increase a person's risk of contacting this disease. Other risk factors for this disease are obesity, smoking, high blood pressure and a light eye colour. The side effects of certain drugs can also induce this condition.

Macular degeneration is considered to be incurable but certain forms of treatment can improve vision and slow down the rate of deterioration.  Treatment prescribed by a doctor depends on stage of the disease and whether it is wet or dry. Studies suggest that a diet rich in omega 3 fatty acids can prevent AMD and lower the risk of its progression. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!
