    Red eye

    A red eye is a very common condition, an eye that appears red due to illness or injury. Fortunately, many a time, the red eye is of short duration, not very troublesome, and resolves by itself.

    Simple red eyes usually clear by remedies such as washing with plain cold water, applying cold packs to closed eyes, taking a short period of rest, etc.

    Commonest cause is conjunctivitis, either due to allergy, or due to infection. Allergies can cause itchy, red eyes that appear swollen. Infection, on the other hand, can cause stickiness of the eye lids or eye lashes with some discharge in addition. While the very mild may clear by themselves, others will need specialist treatment.

    Other causes of red eye, which need proper treatment are, keratitis (injury/infection of cornea), scleritis & episcleritis (involvement of white layers of eye).

    Glaucoma or iritis can also cause redness of the eye, and these conditions would need immediate treatment. Acute glaucoma, if treatment is delayed, can lead to permanent loss of vision.

    To prevent delay in treatment, any one of the following feature indicates that an urgent consultation with an ophthalmologist is important:

    Along with redness of eyes, if there is:

    (1) pain in or around the eyes.
    (2) watering from the eyes.
    (3) photophobia, or inability/hypersensitivity to tolerate light.
    (4) diminution of ability to see clearly, which was good until the onset of red eye.

    Lubricating eye drops and general soothing eye drops usually give some relief in almost all the conditions. That could be a reason sometimes when we may delay seeking specialist consultation.
    One big danger is in using steroid eye drops, while very essential in treating some of the conditions mentioned above, has exactly the opposite and very harmful result in some other conditions. Hence, only a well trained ophthalmologist can identify these conditions quickly and advise accordingly.
    Today being world diabetes day, we should take simple measures to prevent the occurrence of all complications of diabetes.
    One of the most troublesome complication of diabetes is retinopathy, where the retina (very sensitive vision structure at the back of the eye) gets damaged, resulting in near permanent, total loss of vision.
    This damage is more common in people whose diabetes is not properly controlled, are having diabetes for a very long time (several years), have other conditions like blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc.
    Unfortunately, this condition can also affect those diabetics who are very careful with all the measures and have perfectly controlled sugar levels.
    One good news is that if detected very early, and treated promptly and adequately, severe vision loss can be prevented.
    Only way to achieve this, as per well established international protocols, is to undergo detailed retina evaluation, also known as eye fundus evaluation, by an experienced ophthalmologist (eye doctor). This test is best done after putting pupil dilating eye drops, so that the entire retina is properly studied.
    This should ideally be done at least once every year, if no abnormalities are detected and once every 6 months even if minor lesions start showing up. This test should be done even if one's vision is very clear, with or without spectacles, since in mild early stages of diabetic retinopathy, vision may still remain reasonably good, leading to delays in getting checked up. So, one should get this retina test done even without any symptoms of disturbed eye sight or any other difficulties.
    In addition, if diabetic retinopathy has already started, it could indirectly indicate that kidney damage (called nephropathy) might also have started, or vice versa.
    Being in alert mode and taking simple preventive steps could go a long way in preventing complications of diabetes.
    LASIK or Laser Vision Correction is a proven, highly successful procedure to give up spectacles or contact lenses.

    Most types of eye sight problems, such as short sight (minus power) or long sight (plus power) can be corrected by these procedures.

    The benefits are clear:

    • First of all, It works! It corrects vision. Around 96% of patients will have their desired vision after LASIK. An enhancement, if at all needed, can further increase this number.
    • LASIK is associated with very little pain due to the numbing drops that are used. The discomfort experienced hardly lasts few seconds.
    • Vision is corrected nearly immediately or by the next day after LASIK.
    • No bandages or stitches are required after LASIK.
    • Adjustments can be made years after LASIK to further correct vision if vision changes while you age.
    • After having LASIK, most patients have a dramatic reduction in eyeglass or contact lens dependence and many patients no longer need them at all.

    The actual procedure:

    Basically, Lasik or Laser Vision Correction can be done in different ways. The most commonly done procedure needs a thin flap to be taken from the cornea ( the curved glass like structure which makes the front of our eyes ). This flap making can be done by an automated, very thin, rotating blade (microkeratome) or by a very advanced Laser, called Femtosecond. The femtosecond laser option is the best, but also the most expensive, may not be suitable for all eyes. After creating the flap, the next most important part is the application of excimer laser, which is a must for all Laser Vision Correction procedures.

    There are few side effects or complications, but most of them can be prevented by careful preoperative planning or can be overcome by treatment or eye drops after the procedure.
