Hi My mother is suffering with varicose veins from 3 years in the left leg feet. She is 63 years old. The blood is not passing upwards and her foot is terribly swollen. We tried all medicines like ayurveda, accu pressure, siddha but no use. She is afraid of taking allopathy treatment because in allopathy they have only one solution, that is surgery. At this age she fears of surgery and more than all her body condition is too weak to go for surgery options. Now her weight is just 45 kgs only. We are pure vegetarians. The condition worsened day by day. When her foot turned blackish and completely swollen and some openings on the surface of the skin occurred. Some serum oozing out from the open of the skin. Finally we went for homeopath doctor. He prescribed lachesis 1M 1 dose. The next day half mug blackish blood came out through the opening on her foot. Then the coming out of blood stopped automatically. Then the doctor prescribed echenisia, hamamelis, r 42 and r 63 mother tinctures and dilutions thrice a day. The swelling decreased a little. And then he referred lachesis 200 one dose once a week. And then after 15 days again he referred vipera 200 1 dose just for one day. She started the medicines 2 months before and the doctor advised to take echenesia, hamamelis, r 42 and 63 regularly 3 times a day each dilution 10 drops in a little water. But now the problem is her foot again swollen worse and the wound in the opening on the foot is not healed a bit from 2 months. The wound is still opened and the flesh inside is visible. Some serum is always oozing out. She is unable to walk. Whenever she land her foot on the land it severely pains for her. More over the leg is swollen more and at present her right leg also started swelling a little. More over some swelling started under her both eyes and it turned to bluish black now. Even her eye lids also swollen. She is not able to open her eyes widely. She is loosing her weight day by day and also becoming very feeble. She is suffering a lot. It seems very horrible for me also to see her suffering at this old age. My question is, Is the medicines given by that doctor is right? If he given right medicines, then why there is no improvement? Why the wound is not healed? And why the condition of the leg is worsen and swollen more? Why the swelling started in her right leg also? Why she is loosing weight? If any other medicines should she take? If the doctor is giving right medicines then why the curing process is delaying this much? How long this treatment should be taken? I want to save her from this disease and she must spend her rest of life healthy and peacefully. Can any experienced home doctor whoever read this can help me? Kindly answer my questions on humanity basis. I will share her present photos of her legs if needed. Please help me. Thank you.

It seems probably you spend a long tym on your computer and you hav developed computer vision syndrome. Go to a clinic. Get your refraction done. Orthoptics done. To find any refractive error or muscle weakness. Also try to blink your eyes properly while wrk. Use good tear substitutes. And antiglare screen for yr sysytem.

Hi Doctor, Because of Eye sight whether the Blood pressure get increases? With headache on the back head?
Yes, definitely it can increase. Any stressful situation for body will increase blood pressure. This, in the simple term I said you. :) Hope you understood. So if you feel like eye problems leading to High Blood Pressure, you can consult an ophthalmologist and get cleared up and you can get clear-cut cause of it and can workout in that direction so your BP will also remain in normal levels. Take care. :)

You may also be asked to give a blood sample. Blood testing can measure your vitamin A and glucose levels. Night blindness caused by nearsightedness, cataracts, or vitamin A deficiency is treatable. Corrective lenses, such as eyeglasses or contacts, can improve nearsighted vision both during the day and at night.

CRVO is when a major blood vessel in the eye gets blocked. It is like a " stroke " in the eye. CRVO is associated with macular edema in a number of patients. In this case, anti-VegF drugs like Avastin or Lucentis are needed. Laser might also be needed at a later stage.
