I with in an IT firm. I have been working in IT since 6+ years. I wear spectacles with power 3, 3.5 right, left respectively. My left eye vision is a bit blurred without specs. Even though I got eyes tested recently the power is still the same, but blurred vision still exists. Any suggestions?

You need to get properly tested by the specialist. As it's the matter of eyes don't take it lightly. If it persists go to the eye specialist. For now I can suggest you a homeopathic medicine. Ruta Q to instil in eyes. By diluting in distilled water.

Limit your screen time staring at computers, TVs or phones in the evening before going to bed Do eye check-up. Also check if you are having any cervical spondylosis. Splash water on eyes as often as you can Also take Belladonna 30 – for headache one dose when required.

Glaucoma: 2nd leading cause of blindness in the world

Glaucoma: 2nd leading cause of blindness in the world
Glaucoma is a group of diseases that damage the eye's optic nerve and can result in vision loss and blindness. However, with early detection and treatment, you can often protect your eyes against serious vision loss.

At first, open-angle glaucoma has no symptoms. It causes no pain. Vision stays normal. Glaucoma can develop in one or both eyes. Without treatment, people with glaucoma will slowly lose their peripheral (side) vision. As glaucoma remains untreated, people may miss objects to the side and out of the corner of their eye. They seem to be looking through a tunnel. Over time, straight-ahead (central) vision may decrease until no vision remains.

There is no cure for glaucoma. Vision lost from the disease cannot be restored.

Immediate treatment for early-stage, open-angle glaucoma can delay progression of the disease. That's why early diagnosis is very important. Glaucoma treatments include medicines, laser trabeculoplasty, conventional surgery, or a combination of any of these. While these treatments may save remaining vision, they do not improve sight already lost from glaucoma.

If you are being treated for glaucoma, be sure to take your glaucoma medicine every day. See your eye care professional regularly. You also can help protect the vision of family members and friends. Encourage them to have a comprehensive dilated eye exam at least once every two years. Remember that lowering eye pressure in the early stages of glaucoma slows progression of the disease and helps save vision.

Constant work on pc or laptop can cause this. You should take rest from work every 15-20 min for about 20 sec and look at some distant object about 20 feet away. This will help in relaxing your eyes. You can use some lubricant eye drops eg lubrex eye drops 1 drop every 2 hourly.

Normally the number gets stabilised by 18 yrs of age. After 18 yrs if number is stable, depending upon your corneal thickness you can undergo laser eye surgery if thickness is good. Or ICL which is implantable collamer lenses. Presently you can use soft contact lenses , with strict aseptic precautions.

My eyesight is 5 now I have myopia. And I am 19 years Old now. Can this be cured without LASIK surgery?

Old now. Can this be cured without LASIK surgery?
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 19 years so your number will not increase much 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.

People who spend lots of time on computer screens are prone to dry eyes because of increased evaporation of tears due to decreased blinking rate. Use a tear substitute eye drop. Along with this make sure to take a break every 30 -40 min for 10 sec, during which time close your eyes or look the farthest. Consciously try to blink frequently. Use anti glare screens. N take medication n diet to improve eye health. If there is head ache after managing above advice get a vision test and get glasses with anti glare coating on it. Take care.

Sir my brother has eye site problem his eyes will be always red even in the morning also so what is the reason?

Sir my brother has eye site problem his eyes will be always red even in the morning also so what is the reason?
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 Eye infections or inflammation can cause redness as well as possible itching, discharge, pain, or vision problems. These may be due to: • Blepharitis: Swelling along the edge of the eyelid. • Conjunctivitis: Swelling or infection of the clear tissue that lines the eyelids and covers the surface of the eye (the conjunctiva). This is often referred to as "pink eye." • Corneal ulcers: Sores on the cornea most often caused by a serious bacterial or viral infection. • Uveitis: Inflammation of the uvea, which includes the iris, ciliary body, and choroid. The cause is most often not known. It may be related to an autoimmune disorder, infection, or exposure to toxins. The type of uveitis that causes the worst red eye is called iritis, in which only the iris is inflamed. Other potential causes of eye redness include: • Colds or allergies . • Acute glaucoma: A sudden increase in eye pressure that is extremely painful and causes serious visual problems. This is a medical emergency. The more common form of glaucoma is chronic and gradual. • 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. So,visit a local eyespecialist if your problem is in routine .The diagnosis of your problem in eyes can only be made by local examination of eyes

You cannot make out by yourself at first. By the time you realise it will be too late. Consult a eye specialist every year and get your intaocular pressure checked and also get your retina checked.

Hello 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%. Side effects may vary from minimal like mild dryness, DALK, haloes, glare to severe like infection (very rare). Precaution include: a. Avoid face/head wash for 1 week b. Avoid swimming /water sports for 6 weeks c. Avoid eye make up for 6 weeks Cost :depends on Type of lasik which varies from 25000 for standard lasik to 1.10 lacs for SMILE lasik For more details, you can read my health tip on LASIK.

Hi, limcee is good as it helps in healing and improves your imunity to some extent, but one tablet a day is sufficient for maybe 15-20 days. Do not overdose yourself.
