Eye Flu Treatment in hindi - आँखो के फ्लू का इलाज

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Lakhimpur Kheri
Eye Flu Treatment in hindi - आँखो के फ्लू का इलाज

हमारी की आँखे शरीर का सबसे अधिक आकर्षण वाला हिस्सा ही नही बल्कि सबसे खास अंग भी है। हमारे शरीर में इनका महत्व तभी तक है जब तक आपकी आँखों की दृष्टि सही सलामत है, दृष्टि एक ऐसा माध्यम है, जिसकी मदद से मनुष्य प्रकाश किरणों की संवेदना, चीजों का स्वरूप, दूरी, रंग आदि को महसूश करता है। आँखों का देखभाल करना उतना ही जरुरी है जितना की शरीर के अन्य भागो का, और अगर आप इनके साथ जरा सी भी लापरवाही बरतेंगे तो आपकी खूबसूरत आँखे खराब हो सकती हैं।

क्या है कंजंक्टिवाइटिस
कंजक्टिवाइटिस या ऑय फ्लू जिसे हम आँख आने के नाम से जानते है एक आम संक्रमण हैं जिसका सामना हम सभी ने कभी न कभी किया होगा। इस संक्रमण में आंखों में जलन होती है। मगर इस समस्या के होने पर क्या करना चाहिए तथा कैसे बचाव करना चाहिए ये कम ही लोग जानते और समझते हैं। आँखों के संक्रमण के कई कारण हो सकते हैं, पर इनके मुख्य कारण होते हैं छोटे जीवाणु और वायरस से हुआ संक्रमण। आमतौर पर यह एक एलर्जिक रिएक्शन की वजह से होता है। लेकिन कई मामलों में बैक्टीरिया का संक्रमण भी इसके लिए जिम्मेदार होता है। कभी कभी ऐसे संक्रमण आँखों में कुछ चले जाने की वजह से होते हैं जैसे धुल या गन्दगी। जो लोग खराब लेंस पहनते हैं उनके भी इस संक्रमण के शिकार होने की संभावना काफी ज़्यादा रहती है। इस संक्रमण की शुरुआत एक आंख से ही होती है, लेकिन जल्द ही दूसरी आंख भी इसकी चपेट में आ जाती है।
आँखों का संक्रमण या ऑय फ्लू साधारणतः मौसम में परिवर्तन के साथ देखा जाता है। यह ठंड मौसम या बरसात के मौसम में ज्यादातर होता है | यह एक फैलने वाली बीमारी है, जो किसी भी व्यक्ति को हो सकता है। एक बार यह किसी को हो जाता है, तो उसके आस पास रहने वाले लोगो में भी फैलने लगता है। आँखों में इन्फेक्शन होने पर आँख पहले गहरे पीले रंग के दीखते है फिर कुछ समय बाद आँखों का रंग बदल कर लाल हो जाता है।

कंजंक्टिवाइटिस के लक्षण 

  • आँखे लाल होना 
  • आँखों में खुजली होना
  • आँखों से धुधला दिखाई देना 
  • आँखों से पानी आना 
  • आँखों में दर्द होना 
  • शुरुआत में यह लक्षण एक आँख में नजर आते हैं और एहतियात या ईलाज न करने पर दुसरे आँख में भी फ़ैल सकता हैं। कंजंक्टिवाइटिस के गंभीर अवस्था में कुछ रोगियों के आँख से खून भी निकल सकता हैं।
  • आँखों से हरा या सफ़ेद चिपचिपा द्रव निकलने से पलके चिपकना एक बड़ा लक्षण है कंजंक्टिवाइटिस होने का।
  • धुप या तेज रोशनी के प्रति असंवेदनशीलता जिसे फोटोफोबिया भी कहा जाता हैं।

ध्यान दें

  • यदि आपको कंजंक्टिवाइटिस हो गया है तो इसका घरेलू इलाज करने से पहले इन बातों का विशेष ध्यान रखना जरूरी है। ऑय फ्लू में सही इलाज तभी संभव है जब कुछ सावधानियां बरती जाए 
  • किसी व्यक्ति से हाथ नहीं मिलाना चाहिए।
  • आंखों को हाथ से नहीं रगड़ना चाहिए।
  • यदि बच्चों के आंख में हो गया हो, तो उसे स्कूल नहीं भेजना चाहिए।
  • आंखों को तीन-चार बार गुनगुने पानी से धोना चाहिए।
  • तीन-चार दिन रोगी को आराम करना चाहिए।
  • किसी दूसरे को तौलिया, रुमाल इस्तेमाल नहीं करना चाहिए

कंजंक्टिवाइटिस का इलाज

1. गुलाब जल 
गुलाब के जल से आँख को धोने से आँखों का इन्फेक्शन कम हो जाता है। गुलाब के जल की दो बूंद आँखों में लगाये और इसे रोजाना दिन में दो बार करने से कंजंक्टिवाइटिस की समस्या खत्म कर सकते है।
2. गर्म पानी 
हलके गर्म पानी के इस्तेमाल से आँख को धोने से आँखों के ऊपर जमने वाले गंदगी हट जाती है। गर्म पानी को किसी बर्तन में निकाल कर हल्का ठंडा कर ले और उस हलके गर्म पानी से आप सीधे अपने आँखों को धो भी सकते है, जिससे आँख में जमी धुल गंदगी बाहर आ जाएगी। 
3. आंवले का रस
3 से 4 आंवले के फल के गूददे को पिस कर उसका रस निकाल ले। एक ग्लास पानी में उस रस को मिला कर पिये। आंवले के रस को सुबह खाली पेट में और रात में सोने से पहले दिन में दो बार इस्तेमाल करे । आँखों में संक्रमण होने पर आंवले का रस पीने से भी लाभ मिलता है।

4. शहद और  पानी का उपयोग
एक ग्लास पानी में 2 चम्मच शहद को मिला ले। फिर उस जल को अपने हांथो से तेज झटके के साथ खुली आँखों में मारे।  शहद से आँखों को धोने से आंखों का संक्रमण दूर होता है। 

5. पालक और गाजर का रस
पालक के 4 या 5 पत्तो को पिस ले और उसका रस निचोड़ ले। 2 गाजर को भी पिस कर रस निकाल ले। एक ग्लास में आधे कप पानी भर ले और उसमे गाजर और पालक के रस को मिला कर पीये। ऐसा रोजाना करने से आंख की संक्रमण कम होने लगता है। पालक और गाजर का रस आँखों के संक्रमण के लिए काफी लाभदायक होता है क्योकि इनमे पाए जाने वाले विटामिन आँखों के लिए काफी महत्वपूर्ण होते है। 

6. हल्दी और गर्म पानी
2 चम्मच हल्दी के पाउडर को 2 से 3 मिनट तक गर्म करे। एक ग्लास गर्म पानी में उस हल्दी को मिला दे। रुई की मदद से आँखों को साफ़ करे। गर्म पानी में हल्दी को मिलाकर रुई से आँखों को पोछना चाहिए। 
7. आलू
  एक आलू को अच्छे से पतले–पतले टुकड़ों में काट ले। रात में सोने से पहले उस कटे हुए आलू को अपने आँखों के ऊपर 10 मिनट तक लगा कर रखे फिर उसे उतार दें। आलू में स्टार्च अधिक मात्रा में होता है जिसके इस्तेमाल से आँखों के संक्रमण को ठीक किया जा सकता है।

The solution for this problem is its reduced usage and while using computor use in proper light. There is nothing more effective than controlling usage to reduce and negate the effects. You can also reduce the intensity of the computor screen by attaching a filter or by getting an eye-friendly screen. Above all, one must try to reduce the amount of computor usage or take frequent breaks. Homoeopathic medicine CINELUBE EYE DROPS ( HAPDCO) Pour 2 drops 3 times daily.

Hypermetropia And Its Symptoms!

DOMS, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Gurgaon
Hypermetropia And Its Symptoms!

Hypermetropia, commonly known as long-sightedness, is a common vision condition in which distant objects appear clear, but nearby objects seem blurry or foggy. A person's ability to focus is greatly dependent on the degree of farsightedness. This condition of the eye is usually observed at birth and is also hereditary to some extent. Although, contact lenses and eye glasses are common methods of treatment, surgeries are also an option.

Before getting to understand the causes one should be aware of the structure of the eye.

The eye has two parts that focus on images:

- The clear surface at the front of the eye known as the cornea

- The second part is the lens, which is a clear structure

In a normal eye, these clear surfaces have a smooth curvature. The cornea and the lens bend or refract the incoming light to direct a sharply focused image on the retina, situated at the back of your eye.

Hypermetropia is caused when:

- The cornea or lens in the eye is not even or smoothly curved. In such cases, light rays are focussed behind retina which gives a blurry vision.

- The condition can also occur when the cornea of the eye is not curved enough. A shorter than the normal eye can also lead to such a condition. Convergent squint with eyes turning in is common in hypermetropes.

Due to these factors, the image is not precisely focused on the retina, causing blurry vision for nearby objects.

Some of the symptoms of farsightedness include:

- Objects that are close may appear blurry or cloudy

- Squinting the eyes might be necessary for viewing clearly

- A person may experience strain in the eye, aching and even inflammation in and around the eye

- Prolonged periods of close task like reading, writing or drawing may cause discomfort in the eye or minor headaches

Chronic eye strain and cross eyes are some of the commonly observed complications.

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. Age Frequency 0 to 6 months Minimum of once a year 6 months to 18 years Every 2 – 4 years 19 to 39 years Every 3 – 5 years 40 to 64 years Every 2 – 4 years 65 and older Every 1 – 2 years If you spend a lot of time sitting in front of a computer or reading, you may need prescription glasses solely for those activities.

There is no medication or food for improving eyesight or to get rid of glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser as your age is now 34 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. As you are not comfortable with contact lens then go for lasik. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

Eyes appear red because the vessels at the surface of the white portion of the eye (sclera) become swollen. Vessels may swell due to: • Eye dryness • Too much sun exposure • Dust or other particles in the eye • Allergies • Infection • Injury Homoeopathic medicine EUPHRASIA 30 ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 2 drops direct on tongue every 2-3 hrly CINERARIA /EUPHRASIA EYEDROPS ( SBL ) pour into eyes 1-2 drops 3 times daily Wear Goggles in Sunlight/Polluted areas.

Take pain relief tablets. Or consult ophthalmologist. Why you worried small things. I think you are not expressed any feelings with others. It is better to share the feelings with friends. Do not be alone. You are thinking alone too much on every aspect. Because that you are facing small problems and worrying very much. Do not develop sad movements. Be pleasant in all the time. It is good to you. It is better to consult psychologist he will analyse the problem and suggest some of modifications in your behaviour. Or otherwise yourself analyse and take further modifications. First thing better to share your personal feelings with your elders and friends. Take the advise of them and feel always comfortable and be friendly with your agemates. Enjoy the every movement of life. Eye pain may be psycho somatic means there is no problem but person affected severely. It should be rectified in psychologist. Better to consult a good psychologist. Best of luck. Best wishes.

MBBS, DOMS
Ophthalmologist, Hyderabad
If irritation persists or increases, it could be a concern, you will need to get yourself checked up by an ophthalmologist to make sure cornea is not infected. If irritation reduces or is relieved completely, you probably had a lucky escape. Meanwhile, you can try using a lubricant eye drop such as zyaqua, 2 or 3 times per day and inform us the response.

My eyes are becoming red day by day? I don't feel pain. What could be the reason? Please help me.
Hello, Bloodshot eyes appear red because the vessels at the surface of the white portion of the eye become swollen. Vessels may swell due to: Eye dryness Too much sun exposure Dust or other particles in the eye Allergies Infection Injury Eye infections or inflammation can cause redness as well as possible itching, discharge, pain, or vision problems. Other causes of eye redness include Colds or allergies, Acute glaucoma, Corneal scratches: Injuries caused by sand, dust, or overuse of contact lenses. Sometimes, a bright red spot, called a subconjunctival hemorrhage, will appear on the white of the eye. This often happens after straining or coughing, which causes a broken blood vessel on the surface of the eye. Most often, there is no pain and your vision is normal. It is almost never a serious problem. Because the blood leaks into the conjunctiva, which is clear, you cannot wipe or rinse the blood away. Like a bruise, the red spot will go away within a week or two. Management: - Try to rest your eyes if redness is due to fatigue or eye strain. No other treatment is needed. - Wash your hands, hold clean water in your hand, keep your eyes closer to the water and dip the eyes by blinking the eyelids frequently in the held water in hand. Repeat it for 3-4 times again. - Avoid watching T. V. Working on computer or mobile, reading or frequently keep blinking your eyes to avoid dryness. Take frequent breaks in between. - In case there is itching, use a clean napkin or a tissue to wipe the tears and cleaning the eyelids gently. -Wear an UV-rays protected sunglasses while you are out in sun. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe’s Belladonna 30 and Euphrasia 30 - both thrice daily for 4 days. Use Euphrasia Eye drops twice daily. Revert back thereafter.

I have nearsightedness problems how can I minimize this problem please help me sir.

FICO, DNB Ophtalmology
Ophthalmologist, Gandhinagar
I have nearsightedness problems how can I minimize this problem please help me sir.
Near sighted-ness is also known as myopia. There are various techniques for tackling this problem. (1) glasses: you could get the refractive power of the eye checked and get glasses made for the same. (2) contact lenses: these are alternatives to glasses. Provided you are capable of maintaining proper eye hygiene and contact lens cleanliness, there should be no harm with using contact lenses. (3) refractive surgery: lasik, prk, etc are various techniques by which myopia can be permanently rectified. There are certain basic criteria that most patients need to fulfill before they can safely undergo refractive surgery. To enumerate, they are: (1) stability of refraction: the power of the eyes should have become stable for a period of 1.5 years minimum without any change. (2) curvature of the cornea should be tested by a technique which is known as topography. (3) thickness of the cornea should be measured by a test known as pachymetry. The minimum thickness required is 550 microns. (4) dilated retina evaluation: this is one of the most important tests that should be performed by a trained retina specialist. This test helps in detection of any offensive lesion on the central or peripheral retina. In case of any retinal abnormality, these should be treated before undergoing the surgery for number reduction. (5) there should be no pre-existent corneal abnormality. (example: corneal scar, opacity, defect, etc.) another important suggestion is that whenever you go for the assessment (the above mentioned tests), you should discontinue the use of contact lenses at least 4 weeks prior to the assessment. The reason for this being that use of contact lens temporarily alters the contour of the cornea. It takes around 3-4 weeks for the restoration of the original corneal contour after removal of the contact lens. Another important point is that you, as a patient, should be compliant to put post operative medication in your eyes for at least 2 months. There is bound to be some discomfort, watering, foreign body sensation, pain after the surgery in most cases-you should be ready to tolerate that. A leave from work for 7-10 days after the surgery should be generally sufficient. In case you have any other queries, feel free to contact me. Hope my suggestions help you, take care, regards.
