Hi, please check with an eye specialist if you are having a sight problem and need to wear glasses, as they can cause such problems. Also take break once every 20mins when you are working on the computer.

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

After the age of 18 the numbers does not change and so does not the eye-sight. But instead of contact lenses if you go for a surgery called" clear lens exchange" then definitely the quality of vision will increase as compared to right now.

There is no known treatment. However, there are special contact lenses and glasses that may help people with color blindness tell the difference between similar colors. Color blindness is a lifelong condition. Most people are able to adjust to it without difficulty or disability. Homoeopathic medicine santonine 3x (dr reckeweg) chew 2 tab twice daily for 3 months. If the color blindness is partial ie. If one pigment is missing then the above homoeopathic medicine is very useful in that case as seen in my general practise. I will advise you, that what ever is your condition, you should start taking this medicine. Purely homeopathic, no side effects.

To identify the reason for it...requires your history. But during that time, just put rose water in eyes for 2-3 mins and keep it closed. You will feel better. Do this 3 times in a day for 3 days, then your eyes won't get red anymore.

Redness 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. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care.

Always Always wash your hands with a mild soap and dry them with a lint-free towel before touching your lenses. Always clean, rinse, and disinfect your lenses each time you remove them. Follow your eye care professional's instructions. Always handle the same lens first to avoid confusing the right and left lenses Always keep all solution bottles closed when not in use. Always clean your lens case daily and let air dry. Replace your lens case every three months. Always use solution before expiration date marked on bottle, or discard. Always remove contacts before you go swimming. Always carry your contact lens case along with a bottle of multi-purpose solution to have a safe place to store your lenses. Always schedule regular appointments with your eye care professional as he/she recommends. Never Never allow soaps, cosmetics, or other substances to come into contact with your lenses. Never touch the tip of a lens care solution bottle to any surface, including your finger or the contact lens. Never re-use any lens care solution. Never use eye drops or solutions not intended for use with contact lenses. Never wear your contact lenses in the presence of harmful or irritating vapors or fumes. Never wear lenses for more than the prescribed time. Never swap contact lenses with anyone. Never apply hairspray after putting your contact lenses on.

Hello, you should these exercises for eyes. Exercises for eyes: Warm your eyes. Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Repeat this three times. Roll your eyes. Start by looking up and then slowly circle 10 times clockwise and 10 times counterclockwise. Focus. Hold a pen at arm's length, focus your eyes on it, and slowly bring the pen closer until it's about 6 inches away from your nose. Then slowly move it back, keeping your eyes focused on the pen, 10 times in all. Massage your temples. Using your thumb knuckles, massage your temples in small circles, 20 times in one direction and 20 in the other. Repeat the same actions above the mid-point of the eyebrows at the forehead, then below the eyes on both sides of the bridge of the nose. Take a mini-nap. Put your head back, close your eyes, and relax for 3 minutes. 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 rather reducing the power of your eyes. Take Physostigma 6/ thrice daily for 1 month. Thereafter, revert back for further guidance.

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 b. Lasik as your age is now 21 years so your number will not increase 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.

Hello lybrate-user, you seem to have symptoms that are typical of migraine. This is a particular variant of headaches which are similar to what you described. This needs urgent attention. You need to visit a neurophysician immediately, and he/ she may ask for an mri in the first step (to rule out if there is any underlying cause in the brain) if not, then you will be started on specific anti migraine treatment. Please avoid coffee/ cheese/ chocolates as these are common triggers apart from anything specific to you eg, loud noise / sunlight / etc.
