You require good rest and relaxation. Cause may be anything like eyesight, sinus, migraine, lack of sleep, anxiety stress. Try paracetamol tablets for two days if no relief see your doctor.

Am a 27 years old male suffering from redness in my eyes with little pain and blurred vision for the last three years. It stays for 2-3 days and recurred within 15 days or a month. The doctor gave me two eye drops - Winolap and Tearplus. After using prescribed eye drops, I got relief but it recurred within a month. Working on computer, watching TV makes the problem worse. I consulted another doctor who recommended Lotepred eye drop and Lacryl eye gel. Why am I suffering from persistent redness in the eyes?

Hi. I have a few suggestions for you regarding the usage of computers, mobile phones and books. Follow the rule of" 20" this means that every 20 minutes, take a gap of 20 seconds, blink your eyes actively 20 times and focus at an object which is minimum 20 feet away. This will help in relieving your eyes from the continuous strain that is caused due to staring. Staring at the computer continuously causes us to subconsciously blink less than normal. This causes the tear film on the surface of the eye to dry up. The result of this is pain, discomfort, etc. Another suggestions regarding the usage of computers is to maintain a proper posture. The computer must be positioned at the same height as your eye level. The neck should not be inadvertently flexed or extended. Roughly, an angle of 90 degrees should be maintained between your upper body and thighs. Likewise, a similar angle (90 degrees) should be maintained between your lower legs and thighs. Also the angle between your hands and arms should be roughly 90 degrees. This is the healthy ergonomic way of sitting while using a computer. Maintenance of proper posture would help in further relieving the symptoms of eye discomfort and pain. All these suggestions may take a while to sink in and imbibe in your routine. Once followed, they are sure to work wonders for you. Redness of the eyes has multiple causes associated with it. To enumerate a few common causes: (1) allergy of the eye. It is usually caused by improper eye hygiene. There is a tendency to rub the eyes with fingers, handkerchief, cloth, etc. This is not a good habit because it tends to transmit lots of virus, bacteria and dust into the eye. Allergy usually presents with symptoms of watering (clear water), redness and itching of the eye. (2) infectious conjunctivitis: this is usually associated with white-yellowish discharge. If so, it would be a good idea to go and show to an eye specialist in person. (3) foreign body lodged in the eye. This is more commonly associated with people who drive 2 wheeler vehicles without protection. It occurs more commonly in one eye. Foreign bodies that commonly get lodged are eyelashes, insect wings, small insects, dust particles, iron particles (more common with people working in the iron industry) the solution for a foreign body lodged in the eye would be better provided by an eye specialist at the clinic. (4) raised intraocular pressure: this is a condition known as glaucoma. It is not so common as the previous mentioned conditions. There is usually associated pain in the eyes. It is commonly bilateral (occurs in both eyes). There is usually a positive family history of glaucoma associated in a majority of the cases. (5) inflammation of the coats of the eyeball. This is known as" uveitis" it is also a relatively less common condition. There is associated pain. It would require a thorough eye checkup including the retina-thus a good idea would be to visit the eye specialist in person. (6) increased blood pressure. This has known to cause redness which is also known as sub-conjunctival hemorrhage. In this regard, a complete ophthalmic evaluation and a systemic evaluation is warranted. From the symptoms and past history described by you, it is likely to be a case of allergy. Maintaining the precautions and hygiene that I mentioned should probably work well for you. You could also use a lubricant eye drop along with an anti-histamine eye drop on a long term basis. (3-4 times daily). Avoid using lotepred eye drops for long term. (strictly) hope my suggestions helped you. Take care

Tips for good sleep *Try to keep to a regular timing for going to bed *Avoid fried and heavy foods. Eat early and light food at night so that the food is almost digested by the time you go to bed. *Prefer fruits and green vegetables. *Fix daily work schedule and be busy with your work. Don?t keep pending problems in mind. Note down the points and leave them for next day?s action. *Don?t do stimulating mental work or keep watching TV which can keep your mind agitated or active. This will not allow you to sleep. *Day?s physical exercise makes you tired and induces sleep. *A warm bath in the evening will also be helpful. *Low volume music also induces sleep. *Keep your bed room neat, dark and cool. You may cover your eyes with bed sheet. *Drink plenty of water during the day rather than toward bedtime. *Don?t have stimulating drinks like tea or coffee We have good homoeopathic treatment without causing adverse effects If you are interested, please let me know- *Since how long you have this problem of sleeplessness? *. What is your profession? * Marital status and children * Any long term worries? *.Any other heath problem? Explain how the problem started and whether you took sleeping pills for long. Smoking or such habits.

I want to do laser treatment for my eyes, I want to know is that treatment useful and safe.
Operations done to remove the refractive error (power) of the eyes are known as refractive surgery. 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.

No sir. In jaundice the white portion of the eye becomes yellowish, not red. But if you are having any abdominal pain, vomitting, loss of appetite then pls visit your physician who can check you to rule out the cause.

My wife suddenly lost her right eye sight since about three weeks. Doctors say she has Hemorrhage and blood clot behind her right eye or may be within her retina. Doctors say she needs an injection in her right eye or surgery with the said injection. The doctors can't say whether bleeding in her eye will permanently stop after one surgery - they say bleeding may continue even after surgery and similar operation with injection needs to be repeated with each such bleeding. Each such surgery and injection will cost about 50K + 10K = rupees 60 K. What should be done now? What is this disease? Any solution? Thanks for a response.

This type of bleeding problem is often seen in people with long term uncontrolled diabetes or blood pressure OR both. Other rarer causes include some bleeding disorders, medications to prevent stroke (blood thinning agents), etc. If not done already, you shall consult a Physician (Internist, General Medicine) to evaluate and treat the primary cause. Your eye doctors have correctly suggested the available surgical treatment, and their limitations as well.

I am having glaucoma in both eyes both eyes have been operated for cataract I am 77 years of age I am using 0.1mg/ml lumigan daily at 9 pm any other advice.

MBBS, DOMS
Ophthalmologist, Hyderabad
If your eye pressures are under good control with lumigan eye drops, it is well & good. Use the drops at night everyday, without a miss. Recommended frequency of eye pressure verification is every 3 months. Visual fields (humphrey's) should be done every 6 months, to make sure that there is no progression of the condition. If you have additional risk factors like diabetes and high blood pressure, they too need to be under proper control, obviously. With these measures, you can be sure of maintaining very good vision for your entire life!
