I am suffering from conjunctivitis commonly called 'MADRAS EYE' here. Initially my left eye only affected. Dr. Prescribe eye drop MOXIBLU KT for one week. Which is very irritating.

I'm using contact lens and it's a 1 month expiry soft lens. As I never remove my lens even if I sleep or take bath and will take precautions for getting out the lens from eye. During bike riding I use sun glasses. Will these constant wearing of lens for one month effects eyes? I usually replace the lens every 1 month.
My eyes power every day weak so can you suggest how to improve my eyes power and remove eyes goggles.
In my both eye earlier there was a golden ring around eye but now a day it is spreading toward white surface of my eye.
Hi My mother is suffering from CRVO her left eye vision is blurred so we contacted the doctor in Bangalore and and they told as my mom was not taking BP tablets and cholesterol is more so only the it is affected but my mother was taking homeopathy medicine for BP and also my mother has problem sleep apnea also. Doctor gave Accentrix injection (Imported injection) and it cost 25000. Today we went for second opinion that doctor suggested we can go for Avastin (10000 and it will be shared with 4-5 members so it will be less) or Razumab (15000 and its Indian product) Can you please suggest which injection is good with less side effects also some suggestion for my mother please please. Accentrix or Avastin or Razumab.

A common headache can have a number of reasons behind it, such as defective vision, hetrophoria or convergence deficiency, etc. Now, the question arises as to how they can cause headache. Read on to know more...
Q. Why should defective vision cause headache?
To attain a perfect vision, eyes with defective vision have to make sustained extra efforts, which results in headache. Even if the refractive error is very small, it can be the cause of headache. More prolonged the working and smaller the print, higher the incidence of headache.
Q. Can this occur at all ages?
Yes, it can occur at all ages. However, with age, the resistance decreases and hence elderly people are more prone to get headache. More the use of computer, mobiles, TV or prolonged studies precipitates headache
Q What is Hetrophoria?
Normally, both eyes always remain parallel, but in some cases, eyes have slight tendency to develop minor squint, may be convergent or divergent. This is called Hetrophoria or Latent squint. Such patients have to take extra strain to keep the eyes straight
Q. What is convergence deficiency?
For reading, both eyes have to converge and if there is weakness of convergence, extra strain has to be put on the eyes, which cause headache.
Q. What is the ideal method of refraction in young patients, I,e below 40 years?
Ideal method is to dilate the pupil with Tropicasyl plus drops. This has the advantage that the doctor can see the retina and Optic Disc. This is important to exclude any involvement of brain as the cause of headache. It also relaxes accommodation and hence provides correct refraction. In cases of Hypermetropia, it is extremely essential to dilate the pupil.
Q. What is the role of Autorefractmeter (a computer) in refraction?
It is a very important instrument to provide correct refraction, but it cannot be totally relied upon. Some opticians rely on it and give wrong numbers.
Q. What is acceptance Test?
You have refracted the eyes with Autorefractmeter or Streak Retinoscope but exact power is what a patient accepts. This is very important.
Q. What is astigmatism?
There is a difference in refraction in different meridians and it is important that a cylinder number is prescribed in correct axis. This is a difficult task and needs lot of experience.
Q. Is it important to correct astigmatism?
To relieve headache and strain on the eyes, it is very important that exact cylinder is prescribed.
Q. What is the role of exact centring of Optical Lenses?
.You may give correct number, but if the centre of the Optical lenses and cornea do not coincide, satisfactory results are not obtained. To dispense correct lenses is a big art and the Optician must be qualified and well experienced.
Q. Does the quality of lens affect the visual comfort?
Yes, it is important that quality of lenses should be good, preferable fibre lenses which are Ant reflect coated. Crizal coating with capability to block the UV rays are very popular.
Conclusion: Refractive errors are important cause of headache and needs proper examination of the eyes, preferably after dilating the pupil. Astigmatic error even if too small may be the cause of headache. Spectacle dispensing is an art and a patient must select proper optician. Spectacles if advised for constant use must be used constantly to get full relief.
