I smoke 2-3 cigarettes a day. Is it bad for my health? I want to know one more thing is it going to effect my eyes as my eyes are weak and I have specs of -0.5.

Smoking is injurious to health. It is a major risk factor for all forms of cancers. Occurring in the eye as well as all parts of the body. It is also the most implicated modifiable risk factor for most age related degenerative diseases and inflammatory conditions. It is best you quit. It will not affect your eye powers but can cause irritations and predispose to a good number of eye disorders.

What Are Eye Floaters?

Cornea Cataract & Lasik
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
What Are Eye Floaters?

The spots which occur in the vision are known as eye floaters. One might feel specks of gray and black or cobwebs and strings drifting in the eyes and the same darts away on staring at them directly. The most common cause of eye floaters is age related. This happens when the vitreous & the jelly like substance of the eye becomes very liquid. The fibers within the vitreous clump to form small shadows on the retina. This gives it an appearance of floaters.

Symptoms of eye floaters Include:

  • Spots in the vision which appear as knobby or dark specs and strings that are transparent float in the eye
  • Spots which move when the eyes are moved and when one tries to look at them these spots quickly move away from the field of vision
  • Spots that are noticed most when looking at plain backgrounds like a white wall or blue sky
  • Spots which settle and drift put slowly from the vision

Causes of eye floaters are:

  • Age-related: The most common cause of eye floaters is the age related changes in the vitreous. Vitreous is a jelly like substance which fills the eyeballs and help it to maintain the round shape. With age the vitreous liquefies partially and this causes it to be pulled away from the interior surface of the eyeball. As the vitreous sags and shrinks, it becomes stringy and clumpy. When the vitreous gets clumpy then small debris block the light which passes through the eye and casts shadows on the retina.
  • Inflammation at the back of the eye: The inflammation of the layers of the uvea in the back region of the eye is called posterior uveitis. This can give rise to eye floaters. Posterior uveitis is usually caused by inflammatory disease or infections.
  • Bleeding in the eye: Bleeding of the eye in the vitreous can have any cause associated with it. Some might be an injury or the problems of the blood vessel.
  • Torn retina: Tearing of the retina occurs when the sagging vitreous applies a pressure on the retina and ends up tearing it. If treatment not given then the retinal tear might lead to the detachment of the retina and accumulation of fluid behind the retina. This causes the retina to separate from the eye. If not treated it might also lead to permanent vision loss.

Treatment of Eye Floaters:

  • Eye floaters are very frustrating and might take time to adjust to them. However, with time one might start ignoring them and noticing them less.
  • Eye floaters which lead to impaired vision might need laser to disrupt the floaters or surgery to remove the vitreous.

Hi I am told that I have carnia in my eyes. I have been advised to go for scan before performance of cataract surgery. Whether by taking macugold tab for 3 months that can be cured and in that case scan may not be needed. Doctors say contract surgery is not needed urgently and can be postponed for 6 months, during this six months period whether the above medicine advised for 3 months will have desired effect on carnia

MBBS, DOMS

Your description of your condition is not very clear. I presume you mean you have cataract (you mentioned carnia). Macugold or any other tablet will not cure cataract, it will need surgery, sooner or later. There is no big advantage is waiting, unless you have financial or social reasons for the 6 months wait. Macugold has multivitamins, minerals and antioxidants, can be useful for general health improvement and retina health.

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 14 years so your number will 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. After age of 18 yrs.

Hello, use cmd2 eye drop, 2 drop in each eye twice day. Take ruta 30, 3 drops twice daily. Also get your eyes tested by an eye specialist. You are suffering from the back pain caused by long continuous sitting posture and sedentary life style. You are advised to take 10 minutes break after every 2 hour sitting. Start a morning walk for at least 30 minutes. Regular walking is also very helpful as it is a wholesome exercise of the body, improves blood circulation and helps lose weight. Try to maintain a correct sitting posture. Take homoeopathic medicine rhus tox. 200, 5 drops twice daily for 10 days, then revert me with feed back.

Sir This is my eyes problem I seen double vision every time and also tear fell every tome please solve my eyes problem.

FICO, DNB Ophtalmology
Ophthalmologist, Gandhinagar
Hello lybrate-user. Sorry about your eye trouble. Doubling of vision has multiple causes associated with it. Let me enumerate them in brief: (1) refractive error-inadequate glass correction or a change in refractive error may lead to doubling of vision. (2) squinting of the eyes: misalignment of the visual axes of the eyes may cause objects to appear double. (3) discharge on the cornea due to conjunctivitis also causes doubling. This is one of the commonest reasons. (4) retinal problems: swelling (edema) of the retinal surface may cause objects to appear double. (5) improper functioning of the muscles holding the eye ball in place. The nerves around the eyes may get paralyzed by certain injuries or infections and cause doubling of vision. This may require assessment by an eye specialist and a neurologist together. (6) neurological problems: there are a few other neurological issues that may cause objects to appear double. This would require investigation by a neurosurgeon/ physician. (7) thyroid related problems may also cause doubling of vision and require treatment by a physician along with an eye specialist. Thus, it would be a good idea to get a thorough eye evaluation by a specialist and then come to a conclusion. Let me know if you require further assistance. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care.
