Frankly speaking. You cant stop d progess of catarct. It s an ageing phenomenon. Still all you can do is maintain good hydration. Eat green veggies and fruits. If you hav systemivc illness like diabetes try to keep it under normal levels. Go for a walk stay fit. Avoid eye infections.

Hello lybrate-user, from the symptoms described by you, it seems more likely to be a case of allergy. Usually, allergy in children persists and stays till a certain age after which it naturally reduces and eventually disappears. You might need to use these drops frequently but you should do so only after consulting your eye specialist each and every time. Also, try and maintain strict eye hygiene in your child. This involves not touching your eyes with hands, not rubbing the eyes with any type of cloth or handkerchief, etc. Also, it would be a good idea to wash the eyes with clean water and clean hands 3-4 times daily. Doing so will help in preventing recurrence of the allergy. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care.

How Diabetes Can Affect Vision

Diabetes is the condition where the blood glucose levels in your body tend to be quite high and can have an adverse effect on many of the organs in your body. The eyes are no exception and can be quite adversely affected by diabetes as well. Let's look at the various problems you could face if you have diabetes.

1. Blurry vision: diabetes can cause the lens in the eye to swell and this will affect the way you see. Because of the increased lens size, the eyes have difficulty in focusing on objects resulting in blurry vision. You will have to get your blood sugar levels back to normal and only then the vision will begin to correct itself. This will however take time to happen.

2. Cataract: blurry vision for an extended period of time which progressively gets worse can be a symptom of cataract. Although cataracts can develop even with normal patients, they tend to accelerate and happen earlier in adults who have diabetes. Cataracts are usually fixed with surgery where the natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens.

3. Diabetic retinopathy: diabetic retinopathy and retinal detachment are one of the leading causes of blindness in adults who suffer from diabetes. The retina is a very important part of the eye which allows us to see the images by capturing light and then sending them to the brain via the optical nerve. With diabetic retinopathy the smaller blood vessels in your retina may get damaged and thus end up causing damage to your vision. This can be of three types:

A. Proliferative retinopathy: in this condition very small blood vessels grow from the surface of the retina. The retina is the film at the back of your eye, and the tiny blood vessels are capillaries. These growing blood vessels are very delicate and bleed easily.

If you have had diabetes for years your retinae may develop this condition. As the retina is damaged by diabetes, the diseased retina releases special growth chemicals. These chemicals make tiny blood vessels grow: these are called'new blood vessels.

B. Background retinopathy: background or nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy (npdr) is the earliest stage of diabetic retinopathy. With this condition, damaged blood vessels in the retina begin to leak extra fluid and small amounts of blood into the eye

C. Maculopathy: the macula is the central area of your retina. It is responsible for all your sharp vision, such as used for watching tv or reading. It can become damaged in diabetes, with leaks developing (oedema).

4. Glaucoma: this is a condition where fluids build up inside the eye and it results in the pressure within it building up. This may damage the blood vessels within the eye and cause vision changes. Problems within the eye may not be detected till you experience vision loss. Some of the symptoms of glaucoma may include:

1. Blurry vision

2. Watering from eyes

3. Difficulty in vision

4. Pain in the eyes

5. Lights appear to have halos

6. Headaches

Treatments

Blurry vision also tends to go away slowly once the level of blood glucose is controlled either via medicines or by diet changes. However, glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy may require a range of medicines to ease the pressure on the eye or to discharge fluid buildup. If none of these works, then relevant surgery may be required to resolve the problems.

I want to do laser for eyes. What is the minimum age for this treatment. And what about its cost?
Hi. The mminimum age should be 18 years though it should be decided judicially by the eye specialist assessing your eyes. Operations done to remove the refractive error (power) of the eyes are known as refractive surgery (lasik). 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. Last but not the least, you should set realistic expectations from this surgery. Though extremely rare, there is a remote possibility that the surgery may need to be repeated. Also, the need for subsequent treatment for the eye may be required. Thus, you should be compliant enough to trust and follow your eye specialist. Take care, regards.

Smoking weed can cause many eye problems and are three times more likely to develop cataracts. This is a clouding of the eye lens which may lead to blindness. Smoking has also been linked to a disease that causes the muscle behind the eyeball to swell making the eyes protrude as we as increase the wrinkles around the eye area and causes yellowing of the white of the eyes.Smoking weed can cause Pupils to dilate due to its active ingredient THC and can cause redness of eyes .

FICO, Specialist in Cataract,Cornea and refractive surgeries , MD - Ophthalmology

Contact lenses if not used properly can lead to serious complications like corneal infection contact lenses should be used with proper aseptic precautions. The nutrition to cornea comes from oxygen in air, which gets compromised when using contact lens, making eye prone to infections. Different contact lenses have different period of time for which it can be used. Dont used it beyond that period. Never use contact lens in dusty conditions. Never sleep with contact lens on. If you abide by these things you will have no problems.
