Have pressure in eyes. GOT CHECK UP DONE. FINE. EYE DROPS -NEPALACT and ALPHAGAN Z. STILL PERSISTING. Vision Perfect....
If you have "pressure in your eyes" you need a full glaucoma workup including perimetry (mapping of your visual field), A scan of your optic nerve head (OCT or GDxVCC), Central corneal thickness measurement and applanation tonometry (to check the pressure in your eyes) together with gonioscopy. If glaucoma is confirmed then treatment is usually by means of eye drops for life for most patients with regular monitoring, initially more frequently, when things are stable monitoring can be brought down to 6 monthly or even yearly. Alphagan Z is a drop to bring down the pressure in your eyes. I am not sure why you are on Nepalact. There is probably some reason for giving it which is not included in your short description.

Diabetes is a condition which can cause many problems. Control of blood sugar, blood pressure and other things like weight loss and dietary advice are essential. A good diabetologist or Endocrinologist should be able to advise your mother about these things. As far as the retinopathy is concerned I would need to see details of her vision and eye examination findings, to be able to give any meaningful advise.

I think you are referring to LASIK. LASIK surgery is very safe, and millions of people have had it worldwide including eye specialists. But no surgery is a 100% safe, the operating surgeon will be able to inform you about the potential complications of the procedure. If any doctor tells you any surgical intervention is 100% safe, please do not go to that doctor, as that is just not possible in medicine. We are dealing with a human body which is unique and often unpredictable.

I presume she had a laser iridotomy. Sometimes these can close up with time and may need to be repeated. Best to get it checked by a specialist again. Regards.

Know More About Diabetic Retinopathy!

Know More About Diabetic Retinopathy!

Diabetic Retinopathy is one of the leading causes of blindness.

Every person with diabetes, should get their retina (the film at the back of the eye) checked once a year. This is irrespective of whether you think your diabetes is 'mild' or 'under control', as even newly diagnosed diabetics can have retinal changes (diabetic retinopathy). You will not notice any changes in your vision until the condition is advanced. If diagnosed early, this can be treated without significant damage to your vision. So, it is important to make an annual retinal check a routine part of your life if you have diabetes. Examination is done after putting in drops to dilate your pupils and is ideally accompanied by photographing the back of your eye to document any changes, so any progression can be monitored and treated early if required.

Know More About Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS)!

Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), also known as digital eyestrain, is a group of vision-related problems arising due to prolonged use of computer, smartphones and tablets. Many people experience visual discomfort while viewing digital screens for a long period.

Computer vision syndrome (CVS)
Symptoms Causes Treatments
  • Uncorrected spectacle power
  • Decreased blink rate
  • Inappropriate glasses for computers
  • Improper Lighting
  • Stress on eye muscles due to style of work
  • Proper eye care
  • Proper positioning of body for using computers and digital devices
  • Regular blinking
  • Rest breaks
  • Proper lighting


A good rule to follow is often called the 20-20-20 rule. When working at a
computer: every 20 minutes, look away from your computer screen and
find an object that’s at least 20 feet away to look at for 20 seconds. This
relaxes eye alignment and focusing muscles that are used for close up
work, reducing your risk of eyestrain and eye fatigue. If you still have
problems please see your eye specialist, who will be able to advise further
and also check your eyes in detail for any problems.

Glaucoma - The Silent Thief Of Vision!

Glaucoma - The Silent Thief Of Vision!

Glaucoma is a group of diseases that can lead to damage to the eye's optic nerve and result in blindness. Open-angle glaucoma, the commonest form of glaucoma, has no symptoms at first. However, over the years it can steal your sight. With early treatment, you can usually protect your eyes against serious vision loss and blindness. Most people over the age of 40 should have an annual eye check, which includes measurement of eye pressure and assessment of the optic nerve, this is more important if you have a family history of glaucoma.

Types and Treatment for Astigmatism

Types and Treatment for Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a typical vision problem that occurs when the shape of the cornea is distorted due to injuries or other causes. With astigmatism, the lenses of the eye or the cornea curves. This irregular curve can change the way light refracts or passes through your retina. This causes hazy, fluffy, or twisted vision. Farsightedness and partial blindness are two different sorts of issues with the way light goes to your retina. Farsightedness is called hyperopia. Partial blindness is called astigmatism.

Types: There are two types of Astigmatisms. These are:

  1. Corneal astigmatism: It happens when your cornea itself is distorted.
  2. Lenticular astigmatism: Lenticular astigmatism happens when your lens is distorted.

Risks: Astigmatism can happen in youngsters and grown-ups. Your danger of creating astigmatism might be higher if you have any of the following:

  1. A family history of astigmatism or other eye issues like dislocation of the cornea.
  2. Scarring or diminishing of your cornea
  3. Excessive partial blindness, which makes foggy vision at a separation
  4. Excessive farsightedness, which makes hazy close-up vision
  5. A past of eye surgeries, for example, cataract surgery (surgical expulsion of a blurred focal point)

Symptoms: The side effects of astigmatism include:

  1. Hazy, Bended, Or Fluffy Vision At All Separations (Close-Up And Far Away)
  2. Trouble seeing during evening
  3. Lazy eye
  4. Squinting
  5. Irritation in the eye
  6. Cerebral Pains

Diagnosis:

  • Visual Acuity Assessment Test: Patients are required to read letters from a graph at a particular distance to decide how well they can see the letters.
  • Refraction Test: A refraction test uses a machine called an optical refractor. The machine has various remedial glass lenses that are used to read an outline while looking through lenses on the optical refractor.

Treatment:

  • Keratometry: Keratometry is a route for your specialist to measure the bend of your cornea. They will do this by taking a look at your eye through a keratometer.
  • Corrective Lenses: Remedial eyeglasses and contact lenses prescribed by a specialist are the most well-known and least obtrusive solution for astigmatism.
  • Orthokeratology: Orthokeratology is a treatment that uses contact lenses to correct the deformation and flow of your cornea. You will wear inflexible contact lenses for certain time-periods. It is easier to wear them while you are sleeping and remove them during the day.

Surgery: Your specialist may suggest refractive surgery if your case is a serious one. This kind of surgery includes use of lasers or little blades to reshape your cornea. This will correct astigmatism permanently. The three basic surgeries for astigmatism are:

  1. Laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK)
  2. Photorefractive keratectomy (PRK)
  3. Spiral keratotomy (RK).

All these surgeries might carry some risks depending upon the symptoms of your problem. As innovation advances, it is very important for the patient to explore more options before choosing which refractive surgery is a good fit for him or her. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a ophthalmologist.

Tips for Improved Eye Health

Tips for Improved Eye Health

Most of us take our eyes for granted. It has been often noticed that an individual splurges on expensive sunglasses for looking smarter. But, when it comes to the health of eyes, he or she is either ignorant or simply reluctant to do anything. This tendency is bad for the health of your precious eyes.

Remember, how you use them to stare at the screens of your gadgets all day long. Take out some time from your busy schedule and take care of your eyes. They are precious and vulnerable too.

Follow the tips below to keep your eyesight intact till your dying day:

  1. Eat right for a good vision: It is very important to provide the right and sufficient amounts of nutrients to your body for developing or maintaining a good eye sight. Include nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids, lutein, zinc, and vitamins C and E in your regular diet to boost your eyesight. Food items like green and leafy vegetables, salmon, tuna, and other oily fish, eggs, nuts, beans, and other non-meat protein sources, oranges and other citrus fruits or juices and oysters and pork are excellent for the eye. The intake of a balanced diet keeps you away from diabetes, which causes blindness.
  2. Give up smoking: Cigarettes or other tobacco products are bad for your eyes. They make your eyes more vulnerable to diseases like cataracts, optic nerve damage, and macular degeneration.
  3. Guard your eyes from sunlight: It has been found that long exposure to sunlight leads to damage of the eyeballs. This happens as the UV rays in sunlight have an adverse impact on our eyes. You must put on sunglasses when you are outdoors for a longer period. You must choose sunglasses which give you 90 to 100 percent protection against sunlight. UV rays can cause cataracts and macular degeneration.
  4. Avoid the screen: It is advisable to not spend long hours sitting in front of the computer screen or TV. Take breaks while working on the computer. Also, remember blinking your eyes while staring at the screen to avoid drying up of the eyes. Blinking increases tear production, keeping the eyes moist and healthy.
  5. Use safety devices: If you work with hazardous substances, it is advisable that you put on safety devices on your eyes for their protection.
  6. Hydrate your eyes: In order to have a good vision, you must hydrate your eyes by splashing water on your eyes wide open at specific intervals in a day. When you wash your face after returning from outside, don't forget to wash your eyes as well. As you splash water on the eyes, the dust particles on the surface of the eyelid, gathered from outside, gets washed away. f you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a ophthalmologist.
