Hi I am 17 years and I'm wearing a specks with no. nearly 3.5 please give me advice how can l remove my specks.
you can go for contact lenses or lasik surgery only after satisfying few criteria like amount and type of refractive error, stability of refractive error and corneal conditions..till then you must not undergo lasik. Get your refraction done and wear spectacles eat green veggies. Carrots, mangoes, butter, nuts. Strain less your eyes. Relax your eyes in between work. Blink regularily if working for long time on computer. Lower the brightness of your screen. Work under adequately illuminated conditions. If needed wear corrective spectacles.

What happen if axis degree change in eye prescription and spec's made are different by 5degree.

M.B.S.(HOMEO), MD - Homeopathy

What happen if axis degree change in eye prescription and spec's made are different by 5degree.
This represents a small change of 10 degrees only (180 is also zero- but for convention we dont write single zeros) and is entirely plausible. Note the higher the degree of astigmastism (or the cyl correction) the more critical the axis is. A 10 degree change on a small cyl up to 1.00 is tiny, whereas on a 4.00 cyl it is critical.

My eyes are going weak and I am suffering from myopia n my spectacle no. Is -4.5 and I am really worried that it goes on increasing rapidly so what I do to control it and reduce it.

FICO, Specialist in Cataract,Cornea and refractive surgeries , MD - Ophthalmology
Ophthalmologist, Srinagar
Normally the number gets stabilised by the age of 18 yrs. If its progressing then it could be progressive myopia or keratoconus. Nothing much can be done to halt the increase in number in progressive myopia. However there are procedures which help on keratoconus. Kindly consult ophthalmologist.

I have red eyes last three weeks what should I do please give me your suggestion and headache I need your help.

I have red eyes last three weeks what should I do please give me your suggestion and headache I need your help.
Lybrate itching, rednessredness of the eyes has multiple causes associated with it. To enumerate a few common causes: (1) allergy of the eye. It is usually caused by improper eye hygiene. There is a tendency to rub the eyes with fingers, handkerchief, cloth, etc. This is not a good habit because it tends to transmit lots of virus, bacteria and dust into the eye. Allergy usually presents with symptoms of watering (clear water), redness and itching of the eye. (2) infectious conjunctivitis: this is usually associated with white-yellowish discharge. If so, it would be a good idea to go and show to an eye specialist in person. (3) foreign body lodged in the eye. This is more commonly associated with people who drive 2 wheeler vehicles without protection. It occurs more commonly in one eye. Foreign bodies that commonly get lodged are eyelashes, insect wings, small insects, dust particles, iron particles (more common with people working in the iron industry) the solution for a foreign body lodged in the eye would be better provided by an eye specialist at the clinic. (4) raised intraocular pressure: this is a condition known as glaucoma. It is not so common as the previous mentioned conditions. There is usually associated pain in the eyes. It is commonly bilateral (occurs in both eyes). There is usually a positive family history of glaucoma associated in a majority of the cases. (5) inflammation of the coats of the eyeball. This is known as" uveitis" it is also a relatively less common condition. There is associated pain. It would require a thorough eye checkup including the retina-thus a good idea would be to visit the eye specialist in person. From the symptoms described by you, it seems more likely to be a case of allergy. Maintaining the precautions and hygiene that I mentioned should probably work well for you. In case you have a family history of glaucoma or if you have pain in the eyes along with the headache, it would be better to get your eye pressures checked.

You need a comprehensive eye checkup to decide that. Your exact number, topography test and detailed retina checkup is required to tell you whether anything can be done or not.

Most common cause is having a spectacles power. Just get it checked with nearest eye care specialist. You cant treat yourself at home for spectacle power.

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

Only after removal of glass, squint is seen. According to doctor he is facing two types of problem muscular and number.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user The senario you have given of your son, If his squint (I presume Convergent squint most likely) is fully corrected by glasses then surgery is not required. If even with glasses there is residual squint then surgery should be done early as remanent squint can detoriate vision in long run. It can develop lazy eye. Physical consultation will be ideal.

I am 49 years old male (weight around 61 kgs.) staying in the city of chennai, south india. I am a pure vegetarian. I am a glaucoma patient since 1983, when first diagnosed. I lost vision in my right eye by the time of diagnosis. Since 1983 I am using timolol maleate 0.5% eye drops twice daily for both my eyes and from the year 2001 my doctor suggested me in addition to timolol maleate to instill latanoprost for my left (has almost normal vision) eye at bed time to prevent any further damage. Now regular monitoring shows iop as very normal. Now my problem is not relating to eyes, but the timolol maleate I am using for past 32 years. As far as I could get information from the internet timolol maleate is beta-blocker and for the past 3 years my ldl & vldl levels are on the rise and hdl on the lower side for unknown reason though there is no major change in total cholesterol. I am not a diabetic (regularly monitored) nor hypertensive. Family doctor suggests to take drugs for the abnormal lipid profile. The other symptoms I am facing for the past 2 months are (1) total fatigue, (2) frequent cold with nasal discharge, (3) drowsiness, (4) shallow breath, (5) ringing sound in ears etc. I just wanted to know whether these symptoms are due to prolonged use of beta-blocker (timolol maleate eye drops), so that I can place before my ophthalmologist your observation and prevent any other future complications.Please tell.

These symptoms are unlikely to be caused by timolol maleate eye drops. It should not be used in cardiac or respiratory condition. Beside regular iop check get periodical glaucoma field examn. Your eye surgeon can monitor the optic disc cupping by funds exam. As you have only one eye on working condition. These tests should be done regularly to monitor the efficacy of the eye drops and at the same time keeping in mind about progression.

First you need to get your eyes tested for any glass power wear protective glasses while you r travelling to avoid dust and dirt entering the eyes. More importantly put on helmet with wisor (front glass covering) while driving two wheeler.

Give me the complete details about lasik laser treatment. I am suffering from short sight. Thank you.
Lasik is a simple laser procedure which changes the shape of the cornea so that the light rays fall on the retina properly. Basically a flap is made on the cornea, the laser is then given to cornea and flap is reposited. It is a painless procedure. It is a day care procedure does not require any injections, does not require admission, you can simply resume your duties in 2 days. Cost varies from centre to centre. Side effects are usually limited to dryness of eyes for few months. We can do lasik anytime after age of 18 years. You need to undergo proper prelasik checkup to decide whether lasik is safe for you or not
