I am having an excessive night fall, sometimes 4 DAYS a week, I can not
Pull any weight and effect eyes as well.
Night emissions if 2-3 in a month are normal but if more than this then it become very serious problem in some individuals. It denotes the infection and weakness of urogenital system. In acute cases the problem of automatic discharge or emission may happens anytime of day or night. Generally over masturbation is the main cause for this problem. Over masturbation and nightfall together destroys sexual life and general health of the patient. Masturbation can become a serious problem if it becomes a habit. Long term over masturbation can cause behavioral disorders, stress, depression, loss of concentration and many sex problems like erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and seminal deficiency. Avoid masturbation or control this habit. Being a homoeopath, I will advise you to go for homoeopathic treatment as these homoeopathic medicines will help to cure your problem from root and that too naturally without any sideeffects. These medicines help in increasing immunity, strength and health of urogenital system and over all body. Infections and weakness of urogenital system, body and brain are washed out by regular course of these medicines. Premature ejaculation, loose or weak erections, flowing of semen in urine and nightfall etc will be washed away with regular course of these homoeopathic medicines after taking them for minimum three four months. --------consult me.

What is hypermetropia? What are the causes for that? How it can be prevented and how it can be corrected?

What is hypermetropia? What are the causes for that? How it can be prevented and how it can be corrected?
Hypermetropia is better known as far sighted-ness. It means that a person having hypermetropia tends to have good vision for distance and poor vision for near. The causes are as follows: (1) axial growth of the eye. The eye tends to be short and thus cause hypermetropic refractive error. (2) age related. With progressive age, there occurs a hypermetropic shift. (3) surgical removal of the lens in the eye tends to render the eye highly hypermetropic. (4) children are seen to have hypermetropic refractive errors. To correct hypermetropia, following treatment options are available: (a) glasses/ spectacles. (b) contact lens. (c) refractive surgery. (d) lens surgery-removal of the lens and placement of an artificial intra-ocular lens. Let me know if further assistance required. Take care.

Hello sir, my eyes are in red color and pain

Don't use refresh tears, examine your eyes if you're having allergy then your eyes will be effected. Both eyelids will have papillae. So use cromal forte eye drop in both eyes or consult eye doctor physically. One drop each eye 3 times for 7 days.

Hello, Bloodshot eyes appear red because the vessels at the surface of the white portion of the eye become swollen. Vessels may swell due to: Eye dryness Too much sun exposure Dust or other particles in the eye Allergies Infection Injury Eye infections or inflammation can cause redness as well as possible itching, discharge, pain, or vision problems. Other causes of eye redness include Colds or allergies, Acute glaucoma, Corneal scratches: Injuries caused by sand, dust, or overuse of contact lenses. Sometimes, a bright red spot, called a subconjunctival hemorrhage, will appear on the white of the eye. This often happens after straining or coughing, which causes a broken blood vessel on the surface of the eye. Most often, there is no pain and your vision is normal. It is almost never a serious problem. Because the blood leaks into the conjunctiva, which is clear, you cannot wipe or rinse the blood away. Like a bruise, the red spot will go away within a week or two. Management: - Try to rest your eyes if redness is due to fatigue or eye strain. No other treatment is needed. - Wash your hands, hold clean water in your hand, keep your eyes closer to the water and dip the eyes by blinking the eyelids frequently in the held water in hand. Repeat it for 3-4 times again. - Avoid watching T. V. Working on computer or mobile, reading or frequently keep blinking your eyes to avoid dryness. Take frequent breaks in between. - In case there is itching, use a clean napkin or a tissue to wipe the tears and cleaning the eyelids gently. -Wear an UV-rays protected sunglasses while you are out in sun. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe’s Belladonna 30 and Euphrasia 30 - both thrice daily for 4 days. Use Euphrasia Eye drops twice daily.

Get your refraction done and wear spectacles eat green veggies. Carrots. Strain less your eyes. Relax your eyes in between work. Blink regularly if working for long time on computer. Lower the brightness of your screen. Work under adequately illuminated conditions. If needed wear corrective spectacles. These r few things you can take care of. Otherwise as such no options available which wd increases your eyesight.

Hello, There are many different causes of white pupil or white reflex. Other conditions also can mimic white pupil.Although the causes of a cloudy or white cornea are different from those of a white pupil or white reflex, these problems also need medical attention right away. Cataracts may also cause the pupil to appear white. Causes Coats' disease - exudative retinopathy Coloboma Congenital cataract (may be hereditary or may result from other conditions, including congenital rubella, galactosemia, retrolental fibroplasia) Persistent primary hyperplastic vitreous Retinoblastoma Toxocara canis (infection caused by a parasite) Uveitis Most causes of white pupil will cause decreased vision. This may often occur before the pupil appears to be white. So, first visit an Opthalmologist and get your eyes tested. Treatment would be given accordingly.

I feel itching in eyes whenever I use mobile phones n computer, may I know wt will be the reason.

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
I feel itching in eyes whenever I use mobile phones n computer, may I know wt will be the reason.
Mobile nd Computer screen is made up of hundreds of tiny pixels that are constantly moving. Our eyes in turn are not naturally able to set focus on these constantly moving pixels, and hence we try to focus on an area behind the actual screen. Therefore, in order to work on a mobile, our eyes need to keep on fluctuating focus between their natural point of focus and the pixels on the screen. And this tires the eyes and causes a lot of wear and tear.As a result, we suffer from irritation, which may range from a number of things like headaches, dry eyes,Itching eyes, blurred vision, problems in focusing and faulty color perception, to something as severe as glaucoma. The electromagnetic waves that are emitted by a mobile phone can be extremely damaging to the eyes. It has been studied and well documented that these cell phone waves can have a damaging effect on the various parts of the eye, including the retina and the cornea. Moreover, they can cause cataract too.Moreover it is more distressing for our eyes to view contents on a tiny screen which requires even more concentration and extenive usage of eyes without blinking thus causing Eye dryness making them vulnerable to frequent Eye problemss. . The solution for this problem I its reduced usage and while uing mobiles use them inproper light. There is nothing more effective than controlling usage to reduce and negate the effects. You can also reduce the intensity of the mobile’s screen by attaching a filter or by getting an eye-friendly screen. Above all, one must try to reduce the amount of mobile usage or take frequent breaks.
