: red eye has many causes. You have to see if it is associated with blurring of vision, pain, discharge and other complaints. But commonly its allergic or infective in origin ie allergic or infective conjunctivitis. Which has simple treatment protocol. But still its wise to see an ophthalmologist for a thorough slit lamp examination to rule out other differentials for red eye.

I have type 1 duane retraction syndrome. I want to plan my child and my family is very disturbed about this. Will my children inherit it biologically from me or will face them any time in their life?

Generally they are not inherited, less commonly they can be autosomal recessive or dominant. Get a gene mapping done (look for chn1 mutation)

You should consult ophthmologist for refraction & if any ,use antiglare glass & if no retractive power use plane antiglare glass .You are also suffering from dryness (computer Vision syndrome) because you don't know how to work on computer. One should have normal blinking while working on computer or smartphone but number of blinking drastically goes down from around 24 per minute to around 8 per minute causing all your problem .one should use lubricating eye drops (Refresh liquigel) regularly 4-5 times who are addicted to smartphone or computer, with regards.

For last two weeks I have been feeling dryness in both my eyes. When I close my eyes, it becomes difficult to some extent to open the eyes. The eyes are felt heavy unlike in normal situation. Earlier, I had problems of tears in both eyes. I took eye drop "Genteal" on specialist's advice. That problem has mostly been solved. I have got eye drop "Refresh Tears" with me. Can it be taken now for my present problem? Your valuable advice is solicited. Thank you.

The problem seems to be of dry eye. Refresh tears are artificial year drops. May be used when needed. Best is to use kseerabala101 drops. Which you may buy from. Any ayurveda shops. Apply a drop of the medicated ghee on you finger tips and use it to massage around your eyes at bed time. Morning after waking up wash eye and face with Luke warm water. Do this regularly. From a month. Also you may use ophthacare eye drop which is ayurveda ,but available at all shops as it is a himalaya brand medicine, instead of refresh tears .u can use ophthacare 1 drop I each eye, whenever you feel irritation or dryness or burning like ,twice or thrice a day. Another thing you should remember to do is to frequently blink your eye. Because in dry eye people the blinking of eye is also usually less. So remind yourself to blink your eyes often.

Glaucoma: What You Need to Know?

MBBS, MS - Ophthalmology
Ophthalmologist, Ghaziabad
Glaucoma: What You Need to Know?

Glaucoma is a group of diseases that causes damage to your eye's optic nerve and gets worse over time. The optic nerve is a bundle of millions of nerve fibres which carry visual impulse from the retina at the back of eye to the brain. The increased Eye pressure, called intraocular pressure, can damage the optic nerve and fasten the natural nerve fibre loss. Since nerve cells can't regenerate this damage is permanent and irreversible.

Without treatment, glaucoma can cause total permanent blindness within a few years. Because most people with glaucoma have no early symptoms or pain from this increased pressure, it is important to see your eye doctor regularly so that glaucoma can be diagnosed early and treated before significant functional visual loss occurs.

If you are over age 40 and have a family history of glaucoma, you should have a complete eye exam with an eye doctor every one to two years. If you have any risk factors, you may need to visit your eye doctor more frequently.

What Are the Symptoms of Glaucoma?

For most people, there are usually few or no symptoms of glaucoma. The first sign of glaucoma is often the loss of peripheral or side vision, which can go unnoticed until late in the disease. This is why glaucoma is often called the "Sneak Thief of Vision" or "Silent Thief of Eye Sight".

If you have any of the following symptoms, seek immediate medical care:

  1. Seeing halos around lights
  2. Vision loss
  3. Redness in the eye
  4. Eye that looks hazy (particularly in infants)
  5. Nausea or vomiting
  6. Pain in the eye
  7. Narrowing of vision (tunnel vision)

Risk Factors-

There are several risk factors, which may lead to glaucoma, such as

  1. Age of the individual
  2. Ethnicity- African, Caribbean, Hispanics and Asians are at higher risk
  3. Increased eye pressure or IOP History of glaucoma in family or relatives
  4. Presence of Myopia or Hyperopia
  5. Previous eye injuries
  6. Use of steroids- as injections, tablets, eye or ear drops or ointments or protein supplements for muscle building in gyms or inhalers
  7. Previous history of anemia
  8. Individuals conditions affecting blood flow like hypertension, diabetes or high blood sugar, migraine etc are also at risk.

Treatment-

The treatment for glaucoma relies on the nature and seriousness of every case. Generally, glaucoma cannot be totally cured, but it can be controlled. Eye drops, pills, laser strategies, and means of surgery are utilized to maintain and prevent further harm from happening. Talk to your eye doctor to find out if you are at risk of developing glaucoma. Consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
