I have a problem in my eyes and that is redness and also pain at the time of study.

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.

I am a 44 year old male. I have some slight difficulty reading small print. An optemtrist said I have have a slight number of 0.5 for long distance plus a cylinderical number. She fitted me with specs that help me read better. Why does a spec for long sightedness work for near sight problems? Should I wear this?

When the power is placed on your eye, you can see it for yourself. Proof of pudding is in eating it. If you have hypermetropia, it helps.

The white part of eyes is alway red in color can you tell me I there any problem in it and how can I increase it whiteness.

General Physician,
You seem to have allergic conjunctivitis and need eye test and suitable drops Red eyes usually are caused by allergy, eye fatigue, over-wearing contact lenses or common eye infections such as pink eye (conjunctivitis). However, redness of the eye sometimes can signal a more serious eye condition or disease, such as uveitis or glaucoma.

Sir/mam I have done cornea translation before 60 days I can read only 3 lines in reading chat. I have 14 stitches cornea is well set. Pls help me to know when I will receive full vision.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Your eyesight should gradually improve a few weeks after a corneal graft, but it could take anywhere from a couple of months up to a year to have stable vision in the eye that receives the donor tissue. After your cornea transplant has fully healed, it's possible to undergo LASIK eye surgery to improve your vision.

I am suffering from glucoma. There is any authentic treatment & can it be cured permanently.

MBBS, DOMS
Ophthalmologist, Hyderabad
There is no permanent cure, in that sense. But very good control can be achieved in majority of people by eye drops alone and very few people would need surgery. Without getting disappointed, just take care with your exact treatment and you can lead an almost normal life.

Hello there are many causes for redness of eyes mainly allergy, infection, inflammation and dry eyes etc. 1. Redness + itching: allergy 2. Redness + pain + watering + decreased vision: infection 3. Redness + pain: inflammation 4. Redness foreign body sensation: dryness if there is only redness then it is normal as slight exposure to dust, temperature or air or eyes may be red in morning. Stress may also cause redness. I usually do not treat when there is only redness, you can 1. Blink a lot 2. Wash eyes with fresh water 3. Cold compresses 4. Use lubricating eye drop like flogel these measures will help to keep your eyes healthy but it will not have any effect on redness (treating general redness alone is not necessary also) having said that you should consult local ophthalmologist for proper examination and treatment.

Hi. Myopia generally stops increasing by the age of 20-21. If you have to work on computer for longer time at a stretch, take 2 minutes break every 30-40 minutes to relax your eyes. You may also use under corrected glasses for reading or working on computer. Wearing rgp contact lenses too helps in controlling progressive myopia.

Styes - How Homeopathic Remedies Can Help?

DHMS (Hons.)

Styes - How Homeopathic Remedies Can Help?

Styes are normally caused by a proliferation of natural bacterial flora within the eye. This causes an inflammatory reaction and is known to affect children more than adults. It resembles a pimple in exterior appearance and may grow both inside and outside of the eyelid. The symptoms of styes include redness, pain, swelling and tenderness. Though the styes do not lead to any kind of visual problems, they can cause significant discomfort.

What can cause styes?
Your eyelids have lots of tiny oil glands, which can become clogged by dead skin, dirt, or oil buildup. When a gland is blocked, bacteria can grow inside. This is what causes a stye to develop.

What are the symptoms of styes?
The most common symptom of styes includes swelling of the eyelid, redness, pain, tenderness, eyelid crusts and burning in the eye. It frequently leads to a yellowish-white discharge which becomes very uncomfortable and may also continue to drain out of the eye. Doctors recommend not to press or squeeze the styes as it may lead to further complications.

You should call your doctor if:

  1. The child`s eye is swollen shut
  2. He has a severe pain
  3. He has a high-grade fever
  4. Swelling lasts for more than 20 days
  5. Pus continues to drain from the eye
  6. His eyelid bleeds
  7. He has problems with his vision

Homeopathic medicines for sty are safe and effective with no side effects. They play a vital role in improving the health and immune levels of the body. The recurrence of any symptoms in a body can be prevented by homeopathic medicines. These medicines are easy and comfortable for all age groups as they taste sweeter and give quicker results.

Styes tend to dry out on its own although applying homeopathic medication can aid in hastening the process of healing.

  1. Amalki: This homeopathic medicine aids in repairing damaged tissue which in turn aids the stye infection to dry out. It is recommended to add a teaspoon of Amalki, which is available in most homeopathic outlets, into a glass of pure water. Then the mixture must be left on its own for the whole night for at least 10 to 12 hours. The mixture should then be filtered and used for washing the affected eye.
  2. Heper Sulphur: Heper sulphur aids in speeding up the rupture of styes so that the pain is instantly relieved. This remedy is particularly suited for the styes that cause significantly red and swollen. It also aids in reducing the tenderness and swelling. In the case of some children, styes tend to secrete a liquid discharge and are extremely painful. Heper sulphur along with warm compress can be extremely helpful in relieving the pain. 
  3. Pulsatilla: Some styes do not cause any pain but cause significant swelling and secrete a yellowish discharge. People affected with such type of styes can be significantly benefited by the use of homeopathic remedy called pulsatilla. It has also been found useful in preventing reoccurrence of styes.
  4. Staphisagria: Staphisagria is for chronic or recurrent styes that appear mainly on the upper eyelid. The eyes are very dry and have rheum. The corner of the eye and the edges of the eyelids may be chapped and infected.

It is important to keep the eye clean and flush it with cold water. If the pain and related symptoms do not go away after 3 to 4 days, it is best to consult a doctor for further treatments.

I have noticed small blood vessels in my both eyes, what should I do? Please help.

If there is no redness or discharge or pain and if your vision is fine, then it could be normal also. But better show it to a nearby eye surgeon to rule out any problem.

Sir I have gone through lasik laser. Can I start gym now. 4 days has been to lasik. So is this ok to start heavy exercise?

FPRS, DNB Ophtalmology
Ophthalmologist, Pune
Brisk walk and treadmill can be started immediately but heavy exercises after 10-15 days. Its not that exercises are going to harm. But being surrounded by many people in gym in a closed ac room can make you susceptible for infection.

There are flashes in my left eye also there appears to be a small dark spot towards the left corner of left eye this condition is existing since two months what may be the cause and treatment also I am diabetics and use glasses.

Mr. Please get your eye checked, particularly to rule out involvement of retina (diabetic retinopathy). It is urgent, so do not delay. It is an eye examination done with dilatation of pupil so go to a good eye hospital in your town and get the eye tested. Another important thing is that see that blood sugar levels are maintained near normal to avoid complications of diabetes. Fasting should be 1round 100 mg and pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c%<7.
