My eye was artificial eye it becomes back side of the eye is blacked and bad smell why? Any problem are not?

FICO, DNB Ophtalmology
Ophthalmologist, Gandhinagar
My eye was artificial eye it becomes back side of the eye is blacked and bad smell why? Any problem are not?
The cause for blackening and bad smell emanating from the artificial eye is most likely due to poor hygiene of the socket and the prosthesis (artificial eye). Proper hygiene and cleanliness of the prosthesis (artificial eye) as well as the eye socket is of paramount importance. You should clean the prosthesis (artificial eye) daily twice (minimum) with clean water and soap-subsequently allow it to dry completely and then wear it. In the empty socket, you should use antibiotic eye drops or ointments and keep it specifically clean. Currently, it would be a good idea to get it checked up personally by an eye specialist and initiate proper treatment for the same. Doing this would prevent further infection and deterioration of the empty socket as well as your artificial eye. Hope my suggestions helped you. let me know if you require further guidance. Take care, regards. Dr. Chaitanya.

My 5-year-old daughter has asthma. What is the effect of using an asthma preventer long-term? I heard that using it for years might cause bone shrinkage. Is it true? Are there any vitamins or supplements to help vision?

Asthma is a disease of the lungs, not the bones. So the question is that is there any connection between Asthma and bones. The most important connection relates to the anti-inflammatory steroids (corticosteroids) used to treat asthma. Corticosteroids, if taken regularly or for many months of the year, can have major effects on the bones. This is especially true of steroids taken orally. In children, they can impair bone growth, leading to lesser height as an adult. In adults, steroids can decrease bone mass and predispose them to osteoporosis, a thinning of the bones. Osteoporosis can put you at risk for fractures, sometimes with minimal or no trauma. It can cause vertebrae in your back to collapse in on themselves (vertebral compression fractures), ribs to break with coughing or twisting, and hips to break when you fall. Because of the impact on bones and other side effects of oral corticosteroids, safer alternatives to treat asthma were developed. Inhaled corticosteroids are now available in many forms ( dry-powder inhalers, or a solution for nebulization). Inhaled steroids are far safer for your bones because they are given at a fraction of the dose of oral steroids, with only a small portion entering the bloodstream. However, if the dose of inhaled steroid is high enough and the duration of use long enough (several years), it is possible that inhaled steroids, like oral steroids, can still affect your bone health.

Hello. There is no medication or food for improving eye sight or to get rid of glasses. Get your vision tested and wear glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens as your age is now 13 years so your number will increase little now whether you wear glasses or not as number becomes stable at age of 18-20 yrs. Having said that I advise you to eat balanced diet including green vegetables and seasonal fruits for keeping eyes and body healthy. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik after the age of 18 yrs.

Hello, get your eyes tested from an opthalmologist. Include the following for getting better vision: vitamins a, c, e, and minerals like copper and zinc are essential to eyesight. Get the antioxidants from dark leafy greens, egg yolks, yellow peppers, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Include garlic and onions. Blueberries, grapes as they have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help improve your vision. Dha is a fatty acid found in coldwater fish like salmon, sardines and mackerel. Exercises for strengthening eye muscles: -begin by partially closing your eyes; the lids should only be halfway shut. After holding for 10-15 seconds, close your eyes very slowly. Take a few deep breaths to increase oxygen in the blood. -warm your eyes. Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Repeat this three times. -hold a pen at arm's length. Focus your gaze on the tip of the pen. Bring the pen closer to your nose at a slow and steady pace. Repeat this exercise 5-10 times. -concentrate your vision on the tip of your nose. Then shift your gaze to an object further away, either at arm's length or 20 feet away. Then shift your eyes back to the tip of your nose. Repeat this exercise 10 times. -sit in a relaxed but upright position. Begin by look to the left-most position (without moving your head) and hold to stretch your eye muscles. Hold for 5 counts. Blink and return your gaze back to look straight in front of you. Then look to the right-most position with your gaze and hold for 5 counts. Repeat 3 times, blinking between each hold. Then, repeat this exercise looking up and then down. Do not forget about blinking. -sit in a relaxed but upright position. Look up and to your right for 5 seconds. Return your gaze to center. Look up to and to your left for 5 seconds. Return your gaze to center. Look down and to your right for 5 seconds. Return your gaze to center. Look down and to your left for 5 seconds. Insufficient sleep may weaken your vision, so shoot for 8 hours of sound sleep a night. Rest your eyes 10 minutes for every 50 minutes spent reading or in front of the computer. If your eyes feel overly tired, lie down and place cooling cucumber slices over your eyelids. Medication: take homoeopathic medicine which will help you in preventing first and then reducing the power of your eyes (if the eye power is less). Take physostigma 6/ thrice daily for 1 month and instill euphrasia eye drops twice a day. Thereafter, revert back for further guidance.

The extent or degree of squint is important. Also, if it is recent or is there from childhood. It can be corrected by surgery, if appearance is a concern. Generally, no exercise can correct it.

I get alot of puffiness under my eyes especially in morning what is the reason and cure for it?

FICO, DNB Ophtalmology

I get alot of puffiness under my eyes especially in morning what is the reason and cure for it?
Puffiness beneath the eyelids has various causes associated with it. (1) age related distribution of fat. With progressive time and age there occurs a re-distribution of a lot of body fat. This may lead to puffiness/ sagging/ bagginess of the lower eyelids. (2) excessive alcohol consumption has at times seen to be associated with puffiness of eyelids. (3) hypersensitivity/ allergy of the eyes may cause puffiness. It may be caused due to dust, pollen, insect bite, etc. (4) thyroid level fluctuation has at times been seen to be associated with puffiness of eyelids. (5) excessive obesity has been shown to be associated with puffiness of eyelids. Thus, it would be a good idea to identify in the category that you come into and then tackle the situation. The reason for this being that each cause would have a different pattern of treatment. Take care-regards.

Hello 1. Please don't worry 2. This must be power of your near vision glasses 3. Near vision glass power increases with age and it is natural 4 there is no way to stop this as this is just aging process 5. Computer does not affect your eyes. It can't increase power of your glasses.

Dear:- you have started contact lens wearing recently. Insertion of cl: the moistened cl is placed on tip of right finger, & brought to eye, while the lids r retracted and eye gazes steadily at approaching cl until it is applied gently to cornea. When in position the upper lid is released first & then lower lid. Removal of cl: the eye is opened widely so that lid margins r beyond edge of lens. Index finger is placed at outer can nothus possibly touching sclera & with firm pressure backward stretches the skin & therewith the lid laterally. The taught lids expel lens which will either dislocate on to lashes or on to waiting hand.
