Foggy and Cloudy Vision - A Sign Of Cataract?

DOMS, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
Foggy and Cloudy Vision - A Sign Of Cataract?

Cataract is clouding of clear natural lens present inside the eye, this is a major cause of decreased vision in elderly. Cataracts can occur in one or both eyes, usually developing very slowly. Things look blurry, hazy, less colourful and less sharp with cataract.

Most cataracts are related to ageing, however many other factors can either increase the rate of formation or cause cataract formation. 

Causes of Cataract Formation-

  1. Ageing: Most common cause. As the proteins present in the lens of the eye degenerates over the years ( just like any other organ) cataract is formed. If you are having Diabetes or hypertension, the rate of formation gets accelerated.

  2. Radiation: Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays, especially UV-B rays, results in cataract in your eyes. Wearing sunglasses in the daytime helps in slowing down the process of cataract.

  3. Genes: Many genetic disorders can result in congenital cataract ( cataracts present since birth) or early formation. Like in Lowe syndrome or Down's syndrome. 

  4. Lifestyle Choices: Cigarette smoking, long hours of sun exposure regularly, antioxidant, poor diet etc. are responsible for the onset of cataract.

How To Detect Cataract?

Certain signs and symptoms suggest the existence of cataract in the eye. Depending on the type and level of cataract, problems in vision occurs. The main symptom is foggy cloudy vision as if seeing through a dirty glass window. 

Other Symptoms are- 

  1. inability to see clearly in bright light (during the day) which becomes better in dim light ( evening and night) and vice versa. 
  2. watery, tired eyes - mild pain in and around eyes. 
  3. yellow tinge in vision
  4. Halos around light bulbs or bright light. 

If you are experiencing above symptoms and having problems in viewing things clearly, consult an ophthalmologist and get your eyes checked.

  • Wash, especially after coming back from outside, your eyes regularly: Washing your eyes regularly with water helps in clearing out debris from the eyes and relaxing the eye muscles. 
  • Eat Healthy: Eating a healthy diet that has lots of fruits and vegetables are good for the eyes as they contain important nutrients such as vitamin A. You should include foods such as carrots, fish oil, cabbage and eggs in your diet. 
    • Carrots: Carrots are a good source of phosphorus, calcium, vitamin A and iron which are very good for your eyesight. You may consume carrot in the form of juices or salads. 
    • Almonds and other nuts:Nuts such as almonds and walnuts are rich in antioxidants which are beneficial for the eyes. 
  • Walk barefoot: Walking barefoot on green grass is therapeutic for your eyes as it enhances your eye power. It is recommended you walk early in the morning to get maximum benefits.

Causes and Treatment of Amblyopia

DOMS, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
Causes and Treatment of Amblyopia

What is amblyopia or lazy eye? Amblyopia is decreased vision in one or both eyes due to abnormal development of vision in infancy or childhood. In amblyopia, there may not be an obvious problem of the eye. Vision loss occurs because nerve pathways between the brain and the eye aren't properly stimulated. The brain, learns to see only blurry images with the amblyopic eye even when glasses are used. As a result, the brain favors one eye, usually due to poor vision in the other eye. Another word for amblyopia is 'lazy eye'. It is the leading cause of vision loss amongst children.

The major causes of Amblyopia are as follows:

  1. Eye Misalignment: The most basic reason for amblyopia is misalignment of the eyes. In case, both your eyes are not aimed in the same proportion or direction, the image from the affected eye is turned off by the brain. Only the better eye functions. Double vision is restricted.  The persistence of this defect for a prolonged time, makes the eye lose connection with the brain's visual cortex. Amblyopia develops.
  2. Imbalanced error of refraction: If the refractive blunder of both the eyes is not the same, both eyes can't be in the center at the same time. Amblyopia happens when one eye stays out of the center since it is more myopic, farsighted, or astigmatic than the other. One eye becomes dominant. This results in the neglect of the unfocused eye, which neglects to associate with the mind. Treatment with glasses or contact lenses to adjust the refractive blunder of the eye is required.
  3. Cloudiness in the visual system: Any kind of obstruction or cloudiness in the normal functioning of the eye tissues can be another reason, which leads to amblyopia. Disorder of any kind which blocks a clear image from being focused is capable of blocking the formation of a clear image on your retina. This may lead to amblyopia. This is perhaps the most severe type of this disease.

How to cure amblyopia?
For treating amblyopia, a child must be compelled to utilize his affected, weaker eye. This can be done by correction of any disorder of the affected eye such as refractive error, problems in the retina, etc. The goal is to correct the amblyopic eye. The normal eye is usually covered up by a patch, so that only the affected eye can be used for vision. The patching up may continue for weeks, months or years until the best vision gets restored. The improving eye should be maintained well. Spectacles are also prescribed for correction of errors regarding refraction. Eye drops such as atropine are also used for blurring the vision of the good eye. Amblyopia makes you visually impaired. The earliest symptoms must be perceived and acted upon.

Lens Vs Specs

DOMS, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
Lens Vs Specs

Eyeglasses and contact lenses are both used for vision correction. Both of the options have their advantages and disadvantages but a number of factors like lifestyle, comfort and age etc. are important while deciding which one to choose.

Here is a list of the fundamental differences between using spectacles and using contact lenses:

  1. Distance from the cornea: Lenses are worn directly on the eye and are in constant physical contact with the cornea while glasses are worn over the eyes. Contact lenses may cause infections in the eye because the user has to touch the eye in order to wear them and to take them off.
  2. Difference in vision: Since the lenses of spectacles are a little distance away from the eye, vision can be slightly distorted but contact lenses can provide natural and accurate vision. Also, side vision is not improved by glasses as you have to turn your head to see what is beside you. The contacts move around with your eyeballs and the peripheral vision is in focus.
  3. Ease of use: Some people find eyeglasses difficult to use because of the constant weight on the face and the obstruction caused by the frames of the glasses. There may also be a constant need to adjust the frames. Often eyeglasses slip down the nose when you sweat or engage in rigorous physical activity. Contact lenses are free from all these hassles - they are not distracting or obstructive and so they are extensively used by dancers and athletes. Spectacles is very uncomfortable to wear during the rains or in humid weather because they fog up.
  4. Infections and complications: Contact lenses can get displaced inside the eye and they can be difficult to reposition. They also cause the eyes to itch and water if you wear them for a very long time at a stretch or if tiny dust particles enter your eyes. The use of eyeglasses is far more flexible in this respect - they can be removed in case your eye itches or burns, but regular use of glasses causes dark circles and bags under the eyes.
  5. Aesthetic differences: People often prefer contact lenses as they do not change the physical appearance - they help you look natural and you can also use colored lenses to change the color of your eyes. Glasses may look slightly unnatural but some people also prefer them for the fashion quotient.

Hello, its not inappropriate to say that technology is taking a toll on our health these days. Your problem is shared by many people in your age group especially those using screens (mobile n computers) for more than 6-7 hrs a day. The eye ache and discomfort is caused mainly due to dryness (due to high tear evaporation rate in screen users), refractive errors, muscle weakness and spasm. As in your case its good you are using antiglare glasses while working, please do continue it. Try and lessen the screen time if possible. Take balanced diet with more green vegetables and fruits. You can also start with a multivitamin supplement and cod liver oil capsules (if non vegetarian you can have 2 serves of fish per week). Go for some tear substitute eye drops and use it on regular basis. Take a break of 10 sec (close eyes or look farthest) every half hour while working on screens, in order to relive exhausted muscles. Take care.

Hello, it seems you are having allergy symptoms in your eye. This might be increasing after bath due to irritation of already sensitised eye tissues by hard water or soap. Make sure that no soap foam enters your eye while washing your face, also avoid splashing supply water in your eyes. Applying ice to the eyes is a good thing you are doing, this is infact suggested to sooth itchy eyes. Additionally always wash your eyes with clean drinking water whenever you come home from outside. If the symptoms persist try using an antihistamine eye drop.

When do you need a LASIK Eye Surgery?

When do you need a LASIK Eye Surgery?

What is LASIK ?

Laser-Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis (LASIK) uses a computer controlled laser to reshape the eye's cornea ( the transparent part in the front region of the eye), so as to enable light passing through it to focus correctly onto the retina of the eye.

When do you need this surgery?

This surgical procedure is ideal for people having following conditions making spectacle use mandatory :

1. Myopia or nearsightedness - Far off objects appears blurry
2. Hypermetropia or farsightedness - Close objects appear indistinct
3. Astigmatism - Overall fuzzy vision

Facts about the surgery -

- Practically painless procedure done under numbing drops
- Short surgery time as well as recovery time
- No use of stitches
- Reduced dependency on glasses and contact lenses
- Better vision as compared to vision through high power glasses
- Minimum age to opt for the procedure is 18 years

LASIK in Presbyopia or Presbylasik:

The surgery can also be opted for individuals who suffer from presbyopia, which is long-sightedness brought on by the loss of flexibility of the eye lens, and usually occurs in individuals in their middle and old age. The condition renders individuals with the inability to focus on objects that are close by, leading to difficulty in reading smaller prints or doing chores close up.

In Presbylasik or Multifocal LASIK different power zones are created for seeing at varying distances - near , intermediate and distance vision.Consulting a doctor is best as he or she can help you to decide on the right course of action.

Hello, well healthy nutritious diet, some eye drops and some ayurvedic medicines do support eye health but it cannot remove glasses altogether especially a number like -8 d. Please try and understand that the glasses are a form of treatment for your poor eyesight, without them you will not be able to see clearly and might end up losing some eyesight permanently. If you do not want to wear glasses you can use contact lenses but with all proper precautions and hygiene. Another option is surgical correction of eyesight by lasik, but it will cost you atleast 20k- 25k. The health supplements and nutritious diet are important to keep your retina healthy so please do continue with them. Take care.

Hello, as per your age sir, this seems to be due to presbyopia or weakening of accommodating muscles caused due to age. This is an almost universal phenomenon and affects everybody around the age of 40 years (average age). As a remedy you will have to use prescription glasses for doing near work. Please get your near vision correction and wear the glasses only while doing near work. Proper balanced diet and multivitamin supplements will not cure the problem as such but will help in overall good health, so you can go for them. Take care.

Hello, you can use lenses instead of spectacles but you need to consult an eye specialist in order to ascertain the number of the contact lenses required for you. Also the doctor can guide you on how to wear and remove it safely and tell you the safety and hygiene protocol so that your eyes are safe n sound while using them. These are necessary as the lenses are worn directly over the cornea and irresponsible handling can have serious implications, damaging the cornea or contracting infection and allergies. Once you are acquainted with the protocol and you follow it wearing lenses is a routine. Take care.

Hello, it seems you are getting recurrent stye in your eyes. Given your age most common causes are refractive error and chronic allergies which prompts frequent rubbing of eyes with hands, transferring dirt and infection. Get a vision test done at an eye clinic and if there is any refractive error please wear prescription glasses. Also avoid touching eyes. If you feel persistent itching or discomfort in your eyes try using a tear substitute and an antihistamine eye drop when there are no infections. For swollen eyelids with pus use an antibiotic eye drop and some analgesic (pain killer) tablet. Take care.

Hello, if the swelling is there since two months, I doubt that its a stye, probably its a chalazion (painless nodular swelling due to chronic infection). If its small it might dissolve away with regular hot compresses done persistently over a month. If this does not then you might have to consider surgical excision. For time being do not touch the eye frequently and do hot fomentation regularly. Take care.

Hello, I think you should get a vision test done to rule out any refractive error. If there is any, go for prescription glasses. If you are using computer / mobile for long use a tear substitute eye drop and try and cut screen hours as much possible. Take a balanced diet, you can also start with a multivitamin supplement. Take optimum sleep. Take care.

Hello, well lybrate-user glasses are a remedy to your poor eyesight so to detest them is not a very good idea. There is no medications available which can remove glasses. Ok if you do not want to wear glasses, you can go for contact lenses, but with all proper precautions and hygiene. As far as surgical removal of spectacles is concerned, you can opt for lasik if your number is stable for last 6 months. Take a balanced diet with more green vegetables and fruits and if convenient a multivitamin supplement. Take care.

Hello, for spectacle removal you can go for lasik surgery but to ascertain whether you are a suitable candidate for this you have to get some tests done in an eye clinic to calculate your corneal thickness and see its contour. Your eye power should also be stable for atleast 6 months before you opt for surgery. To prevent retinal degenerative changes due to high number take balanced diet with more green vegetables and fruits. Take some multivitamin supplements and fish or fish oil. Take care.

Hello, well your problem seems to emanate from dry eyes which is becoming very common these days due to increased use of screens (mobile n computers) in our lives. Try using some tear substitute eye drops and increase intake of omega 3 fatty acids in your diet (found in fish, flax seeds, walnuts, almonds. Also increase fluid intake. Take proper sleep. Try and reduce time in front of screens. I hope there is no itching or redness which might indicate some allergic issues. Take care.

Hello, first of all get a vision test and if your eyesight is poor get prescription glasses since poor eyesight might be causing pain while studying. Also in your age weakness of eye muscles is very common, do convergence exercises every morning 20-25 times (hold a pen or pencil at arm's length, at your eye level and focus on the tip then slowly bring the pen towards your eyes persistently looking at the tip, stop when the tip becomes double or blurred, focus hard and repeat the process again). Take balanced diet with more green vegetables and fruits. Moreover resting your eyes is also very important, do not compromise on your sleep. Take care.
