My eyes has been suffering from the allergy of sun light when I go in sun light than my eyes get red.

My eyes has been suffering from the allergy of sun light when I go in sun light than my eyes get red.
Hello. I think you have allergic conjunctivitis. Eye allergies, called allergic conjunctivitis, are a common condition that occurs when the eyes react to something that irritates them (called an allergen). The eyes produce a substance called histamine to fight off the allergen. As a result, the eyelids and conjunctiva (the thin, filmy membrane that covers the inside of your eyelids) become red, swollen and itchy, with tearing and burning. The key to treating eye allergies is to avoid or limit contact with the substance causing the problem. Avoid rubbing eyes instead do cold compresses. Use antiallergic eyedrop along with lubricating eyedrop. This will help you I am very sorry dear to say that there is no drud that can cure allergy. Only way is to stay away from all those things that you are allergic to.

Dear friend lybrate-user, I am extremely sorry to tell you either you have not understood what your doctor has explained you or may be you have not consulted a squint specialist ,also called as pediatric ophthalmologist who are trained and are experts in adult and children squint management, as can see in my qualifications listed in latika eye and maternity clinic. Squint is measured either in degrees or in prism diopters. But apart from this what is more important in your case is to know ,since when you have noticed or your friends have told you that you have squint. If it is sudden in onset than it is very important to find out why this squint has developed all of a sudden and will required full investigation in addition to your basic eye check up about vision and fundus exam. If this squint has developed gradually then it is imp to know is it the same or has been gradually increasing, and do you any problem in vision or glass prescription. DO YOU NOTICE SQUINT CONSTANTLY OR ONLY SOMETIMES. Also important to find out are you suffering from any disease or neurological problem at present or in past. Only after answering all these questions along with your eye exam ,can one understand the "cause of your squint" and the treatment will be directed accordingly. We do not have any eye drops or tablets for the cure of squint. Only after understanding the cause of squint -treatment can be initiated aiming towards the disease which in turn will help your squint. In Short treatment of the cause is done. We have very specific and straight forward modalities for the treatment of squint namely, 1. Treatment of the cause of squint for example disease like thyroid, myasthenia, hypretension etc 2. Exercises- again depending on the cause of squint 3. Surgery - again depending on the cause we have no other eye drops or other medication other than the tablets for the causative disease. So I will suggest you to consult "pediatric ophthalmologist & Neuro-ophthalmologist" available at Latika eye and maternity specialty clinic, Mumbai ,who are squint specialists ,consult them and take proper steps as they advise. Hope this helps, all the best..

For your friend continuously reading small print without proper light should be avoided. Smart phone may cause strain. Don't expose your eyes to extreme sunny weather of cold windy weather. Don't be closer to people with eye infections as you may contact the infection. Get your eyes tested for any vision problem. Homoeopathy has effective treatment for your problem without adverse effects. Take belldonna 200 ---once daily in the morning for 5 days.

Dear lybrate user, red eyes could be because of many reasons but commonly it is due to allergy or infection. You need to visit eye specialist to differentiate between the two as the treatment is different. Also get your eyes checked for any glass power

What Happens When You Are Seeing Eye Flashes?

FICO-1, DOMS
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
What Happens When You Are Seeing Eye Flashes?

Eye flashes or photopsia can be caused by many conditions. Although flashes are harmless, they might indicate some serious eye issue which needs to be addressed immediately. Medical attention should be taken when flashes cause loss of vision and also small spots seem to float from one side to the other, thereby hindering the vision.

Migraines

Migraines and very severe recurrent form of headaches which last for few hours to many days can cause visual symptoms. The light flashes look like zigzag lines, geometric patterns and sparkles when they occur with a migraine. Flashes might affect one eye or both and occur in the peripheral area of the vision. Light flashes sometime also occur due to ophthalmic migraine, a migraine without a headache.

Posterior Vitreous Detachment

The jelly like substance or the vitreous fluid fill the center of the eye and also gives it shape, is attached to the retina. With age and over time there is shrinking of the vitreous and it begins to detach from the retina. This is known as posterior vitreous detachment. In this the vitreous tugs or pulls on the retina, while the retina gets detached and stimulates it thus causing flashes to occur.

There is no known treatment for posterior vitreous detachment, through regular monitoring of the eye through eye checkups are helpful. Symptoms of this are similar to those of retinal detachment (condition in which there is permanent vision loss).

Retinal Detachment or Tear

Retinal tear and detachment also cause light flashes in the eye. This needs to be treated promptly. In case of permanent vision loss there is detachment of retina at the back of the eye, especially if the detachment takes place over the macula which is the main focus of the vision on retina. When the retina detaches from the eye, it loses the main source of nutrients. As there are photosensitive cells in the retina which are responsible for vision, the results of retina tear are severe.

Retinal damage occurs after trauma or as a complication from diabetes or posterior vitreous detachment. Vitreous gel tends to seep under the retina from the small crevices and holes formed by the retinal thinning. This in turn raises the sections and disconnects it from the eye. This can be corrected by laser treatment, cryopexy or an eye surgery.

Other Causes:

A trauma like a hard blow on the head can lead the person to experience flashes of light. Also some medications can lead to toxic levels, like Digitalis can cause flashes of light. The symptoms of eye flashes also occur with macular degeneration, which is an age-related disease and in this the vision reduces gradually.

Glaucoma -- The Silent Thief of Eyesight

Glaucoma -- The Silent Thief of Eyesight

Glaucoma -- The Silent Thief of Eyesight

Glaucoma or "Kala Moti" is often an ignored disease as in many cases it does not cause redness ,pain or watering of eyes but the vision decreases gradually and, most importantly , irreversibly !!

Due to its irreversible nature , early detection is vital . All those above fifty and especially those with a blood relative having Glaucoma , should go for regular eye checkups with an eye doctor. A check up in an eye clinic includes an "eye pressure" measurement. Often this pressure is raised in Glaucoma. Also the eye doctor will take a look at your optic nerve to see if it is showing any signs of glaucoma damage.

All suspicious cases are subjected to two important tests. First is Perimetry where we asses the side vision or field of vision which is first to be affected in early Glaucoma.Second is an OCT which scans the retina of the eye and measures the actual loss of nerve fibre layer.

If detected early Glaucoma can be well controlled with regular use of eye drops. If the reduction in eye pressure is inadequate with eye drops then we have the options of Laser or finally Anti Glaucoma Surgery.
