Being on medication for so long might cause her those troubles. I'd suggest you opt for LASIK surgery for eyes. It is both quick and (cost) efficient. Please find out with the doctors in your city about it and choose from your options.

You are not disabled and you have only refractive error which most people have and you need to use glasses or contact lens.

Ensure that she is not using glasses of higher power than needed, for the headache part. Floaters are common in myopic eyes and may not be of much concern unless they are recent and/or accompanied by seeing flashes of light, in which case, a retinal check up is needed.

Using a laser to dissolve floaters – During laser therapy, an ophthalmologist aims a special laser at the floaters in the vitreous. The laser may break up the floaters and make them less noticeable.
Using surgery to remove the vitreous – During a vitrectomy procedure, an ophthalmologist makes a small incision in your eye and removes the gel-like vitreous.

Treatment of Farsightedness

Homeopathic Treatment of Farsightedness

Homeopathic remedies are useful in the treatment of various eye problems including farsightedness and shortsightedness. Some of the homeopathic remedies for farsightedness are:

  • Calcarea
  • Ruta
  • Apis
  • Pulsatilla
  • Silica

Acupuncture & Acupressure Treatment of Farsightedness

Acupuncture helps to increase the blood flow to the brain and eye. It helps in stimulating the retinal nerve growth factors and leading to metabolic changes in the central nervous system. It focuses on the activation of eye muscles to facilitate eye focusing.

Conventional / Allopathic Treatment of Farsightedness

The conventional or allopathic treatment for farsightedness is the use of glasses and contact lenses.

Surgical Treatment of Farsightedness

There are different types of surgeries that are used in the treatment of farsightedness:

  • Photoreactive keratectomy (PRK) – The process uses a laser to flatten the back of the eye to help the images focus more closely to the retina.
  • Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) – it involves cutting a flap in the cornea and then removing some of the corneal tissue with a laser, and then the flap is replaced.
  • Laser-assisted subepithelial keratectomy (LASEK) – Instead of creating a flap in the cornea, the surgeon creates a flap involving only the cornea’s thin protective cover (epithelium).

Dietary & Herbal Treatment of Farsightedness

  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables
  • Eat dark green leafy foods
  • Eat foods rich in vitamin A
  • Avoid the intake of refined sugars and processed foods

  • Eyeball being too small
  • The focusing power being too weak

Risk factors of Farsightedness

  • Hereditary factors

Complications of Farsightedness

  • Glaucoma
  • Lazy eye
  • Crossed eyes

 Diagnosis of Farsightedness

Farsightedness is diagnosed by a basic eye exam. A complete eye examination involves the following tests.

  • Eye movement testing
  • Glaucoma testing
  • Refraction test
  • Retinal examination
  • Slit-lamp examination
  • Visual acuity

Precautions & Prevention of Farsightedness

  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables

Strange But Actual Reasons Behind Computer Vision Syndrome!

MS - Ophthalmology, MBBS, FRCS

Strange But Actual Reasons Behind Computer Vision Syndrome!

Eye problems that are caused due to the computer can be termed as Computer Vision Syndrome. Staring a computer screen has become a part of our daily lives, for many of us. Work and pleasure both include using a computer or a tablet. Looking at this screen for prolonged periods can cause many problems including strain, pain and stress due to the repeated eyeball movements and non-blinking nature of the work that we do when we stare at a screen for many hours. Let us find out more about the causes of computer vision syndrome or CVS.

Repeated Movements: When the same motion is carried out on a continuous basis, it can lead to stress based injuries due to the strain and stress caused in that part of the body. Much like carpal tunnel syndrome and other injuries like tennis elbow and shoulder joint problems, this condition is also caused due to the constant and repetitive movements which are known to lead to stress injuries. The longer you continue the activity, the worse it is bound to get.

Focus: When you sit in front of a computer screen and work, one of the most important things that you are doing is called focus. When you focus on a screen on a continuous basis, to align your eyes with what you need to read or see, you are causing long term damage if this activity is carried out for too many hours on a daily basis. This back and forth motion that makes us focus can lead to pressure and strain on the eyes, which should be broken by concentrating on other activities like writing on a paper or reading from a book.

Eye Muscles: These types of movements and activities can actually put a lot of pressure and undue strain on the muscles of the eyes. Also, things become even more difficult for the delicate eye muscles with the glare and blue light emanating from the computer screen which also has other elements like a flicker. This causes the eyes to align themselves by putting pressure on the eye muscles, which makes working on a computer that much more challenging than reading a book.

Wrong Glasses or Lenses: If you have nearsightedness or farsightedness, then these problems can become even more severe due to this kind of condition. Also, if you are wearing the wrong prescription glasses or lenses, your eyes are bound to suffer even more when you stare at a screen for such a long time.

Apart from all these factors, working on a computer gets even more challenging after a certain age like your forties.
