Dear lybrate user, 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 wear protective glasses while you r travelling to avoid dust and dirt entering the eyes.

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. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

There are many reasons of pain in eyes but inyour case it is due to overstraining of your eyes either due to overuse of eyes or due to deficient lightening systemin your study room.Weak Eyeight can also be the reason.I will advise you to undergo thorough Eye checkup from an Eye specialist to rule out possibility of weak eyesight.Meanwhile start using these homoeopathic eye drops CINERARIA /EUPHRASIA EYE DROPS ( SBL) Pour 2 drops 3 times daily.

Relief. 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.

Pimples do not occur on the leg. It may be due to bacterial infection. You need to take proper medicine for it. Avoid oily/ junk food, drink plenty of water daily and also avoid hair oil application. Use facewash and cream meant for acne on your face.

Eyes do become red after shower temporarily. If redness does not last longer then do not worry. Headstand or shirshaasana can sometimes increase the pressure within the eye. If your not a glaucoma patient then. It is quiet safe.
