Eye strain, or asthenopia, is when the eyes get tired from excessive or intense use. It can be annoying, but it tends to disappear with rest. Although it’s not often a serious condition, eye strain could be a symptom of an underlying problem. Eye strain is known to cause fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and headaches Eye strain may lead to other problems, such as: • Headaches • Difficulty Concentrating • Irritability • Burning Sensation • Watery Eyes • Dry Eyes • Photophobia • Eye Pain The first thing you can do is change your environment and work habits. By doing this you can relieve the pain without spending money on treatment. If you work on the computer, try taking more eye breaks by looking down the hall or out the window, or by closing your eyes for thirty seconds. You should get your eyes checked at least once a year, especially as you grow older. Routine eye exams give you the opportunity to discuss with your Eye Specialist any issues you may be having, and they may enable you to catch any problems in their early stages. If you work on a computer, taking eye breaks for five minutes every hour can lessen the strain on your eyes. Simply closing your eyes for a few moments can also do wonders. Try standing up, moving around, or taking a short walk to help regain concentration.Regular eye exercises that involve focusing on different distances can help prevent future straining. Blink often. Blinking refreshes and replenishes your eyes naturally.If you are having trouble with blinking due to the dryness of your eyes, try using Homoeopathic CINELUBE EYEDROPS ( HAPDCO) 3 times daily.

Hello. Glaucoma is a condition usually caused by raised intra-ocular pressure that affects the field of vision in the eye. I am sure that appropriate medications must have been prescribed to keep the eye pressure under control. Coming to your question, I would like to suggest a few precautions and a few exercises to avoid raising the intra-ocular pressure. Avoid exercises that raise your eye pressure: (1) certain breathing exercises (eg. Pranaayam, valsalva technique-the art of exhaling with closed mouth as well as pinched nose) tend to increase the intra-ocular pressure. This should be avoided strictly by patients who have glaucoma. (2) lifting heavy weight should be avoided. This is because carrying heavy objects (more than 5 to 6 kilograms) would tend to increase the intra-ocular pressure. (3) exercises involving vigorous jumping should be avoided. (4) at times, high altitude (mountain travel) may cause increased intra-ocular pressure. This should preferably be avoided. To conclude, glaucoma can be controlled but to get complete cure is honestly not possible. Likewise, taking adequate care and regular follow-up with your eye specialist should be sufficient to keep it under control. It is sometimes a hereditary problem. Thus, children of parents suffering from glaucoma should get their eyes checked regularly as well. Similarly, grand children should also get their eyes screened to rule out glaucoma or its effects. Hope my suggestions help you, take care, regards.

Know More About Diabetic Retinopathy!

Know More About Diabetic Retinopathy!

Diabetic retinopathy is an eye problem that affects the retina of the eye and causes total and irreparable blindness. It usually occurs after 15 to 20 years of diabetes. Poorer the control earlier is the onset. Association of hypertension and increased blood cholesterol make the condition more serious.

In initial stages, there may not be any visual symptoms. Some patients may get macular edema marked with a decrease in the vision without exhibiting diabetic retinopathy.

Here is some important aspect of the disease that you should know:

Symptoms as the condition progress: you might experience blurred or fluctuating vision, impaired color vision, spots or dark strings floating in your vision, dark or empty areas in your vision and an even significant decrease in vision which is not corrected with glasses. Diabetes can cause early cataract formation (diabetic cataract) in the eye.

Causes: In an uncontrolled diabetic patient, the blood supply to the retina is decreased due to vascular constriction, in due course of time. This causes anoxia which promotes new vessel formation which may leak causing macular edema and or exudates. The newly formed vessels are fragile, can cause small projections (aneurysms) or may bleed. This all happens in the most sensitive central part of the retina (macula) thereby affecting vision to varying degree.

Advanced diabetic retinopathy: more edema, exudates, and hemorrhages occur. The newly formed vessels may profusely bleed in the cavity of the eye, seriously affecting vision. In due course of time, retinal fibrosis occurs which may cause retinal detachment and total blindness. Few eyes may develop an increase in intraocular pressure (glaucoma) at any stage of the disease, causing blindness even without advanced diabetic retinopathy.

When does the risk increase: longer the duration, higher the incidence. If you have an uncontrolled blood sugar ideally evaluated by hb1ac (glycosylated HB) test, hypertension and increased cholesterol. Pregnancy too increases the risk. Ethnicity plays an important role. More prevalent in native Americans, Hispanics and Africans and now some studies highlight incidence in southeast Asia, including Indians.

When should you consult ophthalmologist: once you are declared diabetic, you must consult an ophthalmologist. Thereafter as per his advice every one or two years or even early if your control is poor or if your parents suffered from advanced diabetic retinopathy. If you are pregnant, eye examination may be needed frequently. Remember, proper control of risk factors and timely examination and intervention can prevent you from becoming blind. A Recent introduction of oct evaluation & intravitreal therapy has significantly helped patients with diabetic retinopathy.

Seeing floaters is usually due to degeneration of vitreous (jelly like structure in back of eye). If floaters are sudden or suddenly increase in size or number, one needs to show to a retina specialist. Other wise floaters are benign n doesn't cause problem. In your case as it is increasing better show it to a retina surgeon.

You have the option of surgical removal (lasik) of spectacle number but only after the age of 18. It is better that you use glasses in the meantime so that your eyesight doesn't deteriorate. Also lasik can be done only when your glasses number is stable.

I am 24 year old. My number of spectacles is -5.50. What should I do to reduce this number.
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 laser as your age is now 24 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.
