Hello 1. Lasik is very good option to get rid of glasses doctor will perform few tests (schirmer test, pentacam and fundus examination) and if all tests are normal then you can go for lasik surgery without fear. Success rate of lasik is over 96%. 2. If these tests are not okay, then you can go for icl to get rid of glasses 3. Your bank will not pay for this surgery as this is cosmetic surgery.

Your vision will fluctuate in diabetes if your sugar levels are fluctuating. In cases of mvp. The treating doctors evaluates you for risk of stroke and starts prophylactic treatment as and when required. Signs of eminent stroke are technically called tias or transient ischaemia attacks. This means small blood clots that form around your diseased heart valve enters your blood circulation and brain and temporarily blocks a small blood vessel. Depending on area of brain affected you will have symptoms as long as the circulation is compromised. Usually a few seconds to minutes. It could be transient blurring of vision, difficulties in speech or movement of a particular part of body. These blood clots can be readily detected on echo of your heart. I if you r a apprehensive about it. Please discuss with your treating doctor. Reading online about diseases can be scarier than actual reality.

Dear Lybrate User, *Dandruff is a common, non infectious skin disease of the scalp. It may be found even in face, ears, body folds, neck and front of the chest. It is caused due to faster shredding of the dead skin in the lesions. Thus the white dust gets seen on shoulders of the victim. *Ayurvedic treatments such as shirodhara, shirobasti helps not only to relieve dandruff and improve hair quality. They also help you to relieve stress and lack of sleep (which are also cause for dandruff). *As per Ayurveda, most of the skin diseases are related to blood impurities / Dosha imbalance in blood. If that is the cause, then medicine and treatments to treat impurity, then treatment for blood and liver detox *Consume more fluids, fresh fruit juice, avoid more tea, coffee, soft drink, dry, spicy, maida related junk foods. *Practice breathing exercise, yoga, meditation for detoxification.

Hello lybrate user. Gadget and internet addiction is a growing problem today. It has almost taken the identity of a person in our life without whom we get anxious and depressed. It is difficult but can be taken care by many of the techniques including exposure and response prevention that is sit with the laptop in front of you but deliberately and forcibly restrict yourself to touch it or start it. In the start it may be very difficult and anxiety provoking but remember that if you give a freeze response for just a few minutes say 15 to 20 mins, you will find that after reaching a peak your distress starts to melt and that you are able to handle your urge to not use it. It needs practice for sure and may be assistance and help from somebody else initially. The other long term practice I suggest you to learn is the mindfulness practice. We have created a virtual reality around us that actually consists of just materialistic aspects and missions one after the other. This has decreased our ability to actually perceive things as reality around us and ourselves as it is. With mindfulness what we learn is to look at things non-judgementally and effectively which allows us a better self control over ourselves and our lives. For an initial while if your anxiety is too much you can be given medications for the same. If you want to learn more about mindfulness sessions or for medications you may contact.

Many causes of pain in eye. One need to ascertain that it is not vision threatening. You need to show it to nearby eye specialist to rule our any vision threatening problem, it could be mere glasses power or conjunctivitis. But better get it checked.

Generally the refractive error doesn't increase after 20 - 21 years of age. Get a detailed eye exam to rule out any other pathology. For Lasik, a few investigations need to be done to find whether you are eligible. Visit your ophthalmologist.

I have a problem of color blindness so how can I prevent my self with problem can you giv me advice plz.

I have a problem of color blindness so how can I prevent my self with problem can you giv me advice plz.
Color blindness occurs when there is a problem with the color-sensing granules (pigments) in certain nerve cells of the eye. These cells are called cones. They are found in the retina, the light-sensitive layer of tissue that lines the back of the eye. If just one pigment is missing, you may have trouble telling the difference between red and green. This is the most common type of color blindness. If a different pigment is missing, you may have trouble seeing blue-yellow colors. People with blue-yellow color blindness usually have problems identifying reds and greens, too. The most severe form of color blindness is achromatopsia. A person with this rare condition cannot see any color, so they see everything in shades of gray. Achromatopsia is often associated with lazy eye,nystagmus (small, jerky eye movements), severe light sensitivity, and extremely poor vision. Most color blindness is due to a genetic problem. About 1 in 10 men have some form of color blindness. Very few women are color blind.-------------- Symptoms------------- Symptoms vary from person to person, but may include:----------- • Trouble seeing colors and the brightness of colors in the usual way----------- • Inability to tell the difference between shades of the same or similar colors--------- Often, the symptoms may be so mild that some people do not know they are color blind. A parent may notice signs of color blindness when a child is learning his or her colors.---------- Rapid, side-to-side eye movements (nystagmus) and other symptoms may occur in severe cases.------------------- There is no known treatment. However, there are special contact lenses and glasses that may help people with color blindness tell the difference between similar colors.---------------------------- Color blindness is a lifelong condition. Most people are able to adjust to it without difficulty or disability.----------------- Homoeopathic medicine----------------------- SANTONINE 3X ( Dr Reckeweg) Chew 2 tab twice daily for 3 months.------------------- If the color blindness is partial ie. If one pigment is missing then the above homoeopathic medicine is very useful in that case as seen in my general practise.I will advise you ,that what ever is your condition,you should start taking this medicine.Purely homoeopathic,noside effects.

Why Our Eyes Twitch?

Cornea Cataract & Lasik
Ophthalmologist
Ask Free Question
Eye twitching, tics in the eyelids and spasms in the eye are pretty common. In case of eye twitching, usually the lower eyelid becomes involved. The upper eyelid may also twitch in certain cases. Twitches are not permanent in nature, and they leave after some time. In some cases, eye twitching may last for long durations of time such as weeks or months.

Eye twitching is not a critical medical condition. It is a temporary prickling and irritation in the eyes, which ceases after some time. Common twitching of the eyes is not related to any neurological disorder.

Here are some reasons which cause eye twitches-

Stress
Every individual goes through some amount of stress, and the body reacts differently in different people as a result of stress. An eye twitch may be caused due to stress, especially related to strain in the eyes.
In order to reduce stress you should practice yoga, meditation, perform breathing exercises and take a break. Reducing the stress would also cease the twitching in the eyes.

Tiredness
Eye twitching can appear when you are fatigued or very tired. Lack of proper sleep makes your body tired, and this might trigger eye twitching.
You should improve upon your sleeping hours and sleep more.

Eye strain
Vision problems and any issue related to the eyes can cause stress, which may result in constant twitching in your eyes. Whenever too much stress is imposed upon your eyes, they tend to react and twitching occurs. Any problem would make the eyes put in more effort, which results in strain.
You should have an eye check up if you experience an eye strain accompanied by twitching sensation in your eyes.

People who use computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones for a profuse period of time experience pain and twitching in the eyes. There is a 20-20-20 rule to be followed while using such devices, which reduces eye strain and reduces itching or twitching. You can also avail special eyeglasses for people who spend a lot of time on computers.

Caffeine
Intake of an excess amount of caffeine leads to eye twitching. Cut down your doses of coffee, tea, dark chocolates and soft drinks in case of eye twitching and you may observe an easing in the twitching.

Alcohol
Alcohol also leads to eye twitching so you must abstain from alcohol in case you are having twitching in the eyes.

Dry eyes
This disorder develops in people who have crossed the age of 50. People who use computers a lot also develop dry eyes, which leads to eye twitching.

Our eyes twitch because of a lot of reasons. You should know the facts right and avoid situations that lead to eye twitching.
