Hi, My eyes are paining. what should i do?

FICO, Specialist in Cataract,Cornea and refractive surgeries , MD - Ophthalmology
Ophthalmologist,
There are various causes of pain in eyes. If it is not associated with redness and it is a chronic problem, more aggravated during reading or doing near work, you may have some refractive error, go to a ophthalmologist and refract your eyes. A common problem when working on a screen or doing work for long periods is'dry eye. This is because concentrated work tends to reduce the blink reflex that replenishes the tears, and the dry atmosphere and lack of fresh air adds to the problem of insufficent tears. Allowing the cornea to become dry can cause irritation and blurred and variable vision. Use some lubricating eye drops like refresh tears, use them at least 4 times a day at least. You do need to look at every aspect of your work environment also. Use proper lighting, dont work in dim conditions should use table and chair. Your table should be of proper height so that you dont have to bend too much. Take rest after 30 mins for few mins, put the tear drops and work again. Do blink intermittently. If pain in eye is associated with redness, most common cause will be conjunctivitis which may be allergic or infectious. Will start treatment empirically on the line of infection start eye drops vigamox 6 times a day eye drops genteal four times a day however other causes of red eyes has to be rule out like allergic, glaucoma, foreign body, uveitis dry eyes, blepharitis. Kindly consult a ophthalmologist.

I am 26 year old. I have frequent headaches and I wear spectacles (cylindrical axis) with eye power 3 in both eyes. I have been wearing cylindrical axis only for one year. Before that I was wearing spectacles for around 10 years. I am unable to work when headache is there and hence I take tablets like crocin. Could the headache be due to change in eye power or cylindrical axis?

Ophthalmologist, Delhi
You should get a neurological consultation for your headache, as if you using glasses (with correct power) should reduce your headache. If its not reduced by use of glasses, other cause might be neurological.

Can i use the same prescription for the contact lens which i use for my spec? i have -3,180d power for both eye(prescribed for spec)

FVRS, DNB Ophthalmology, MS Ophthalmology, MBBS, FICO
Ophthalmologist, Chennai
The contact lens power for those with minus power is usually slightly less than the spectacle power.For small powers ( eg -1 or -2) the power may be the same. It is better to have a trial lens fitting and verify contact lens power before ordering

Watering of eyes can be due to many reasons and the main reasons are------------ 1. Eye allergy due to dust, pollution, infection--------------- 2. Weak eyesight------------ 3. Continuous watching tv, mobile, computor in dim light---------- 4. Any eye injury------------- 5. Lack of sleep------- 6. Continuous headache------------ 7. Hypertension.--------------- so, my suggestion for you is either you provide me the symptoms you are facing due to watering of your eyes or visit a local doctor for an eye check up as a final examination can only be made after physical examination.-------------------

Hello. There is no medication or food for improving eye sight 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 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.

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.

Hello sir my left eye is blur vision what should I do? Please solutions this problem and help us.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello sir my left eye is blur vision what should I do? Please solutions this problem and help us.
Hello, Include the following for getting better vision: Vitamins A, C, E, and minerals like copper and zinc are essential to eyesight. Get the antioxidants from dark leafy greens, egg yolks, yellow peppers, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Include garlic and onions. Blueberries, grapes as they have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help improve your vision. DHA is a fatty acid found in coldwater fish like salmon, sardines and mackerel. Exercises for eyes: Warm your eyes. Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Repeat this three times. Roll your eyes. Start by looking up and then slowly circle 10 times clockwise and 10 times counterclockwise. Focus. Hold a pen at arm's length, focus your eyes on it, and slowly bring the pen closer until it's about 6 inches away from your nose. Then slowly move it back, keeping your eyes focused on the pen, 10 times in all. Massage your temples. Using your thumb knuckles, massage your temples in small circles, 20 times in one direction and 20 in the other. Repeat the same actions above the mid-point of the eyebrows at the forehead, then below the eyes on both sides of the bridge of the nose. Take a mini-nap. Put your head back, close your eyes, and relax for 3 minutes. Insufficient sleep may weaken your vision, so shoot for 8 hours of sound sleep a night. Rest your eyes 10 minutes for every 50 minutes spent reading or in front of the computer. If your eyes feel overly tired, lie down and place cooling cucumber slices over your eyelids. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine which will help you in preventing rather reducing the power of your eyes. Take Physostigma 6/ thrice daily for 1 month. Thereafter, revert back for further guidance.

What is function of retina in the human eye and what is cornea also how can we make better our eye?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
What is function of retina in the human eye and what is cornea also how can we make better our eye?
The Retina is located at the back of the eye and this part of the eye contains multiple layers of sensory tissue. The retina has millions of photosensitive cells known as photoreceptors which work to capture and convert light rays into electric signals. These signals then travel to the brain through the optic nerve where they are converted into the images we see. The cornea is a clear covering over the surface portion of the eye. It is very strong and durable and helps protect the eye from invasive dust, germs and foreign matter. The cornea also focuses images and light onto the retina, which then begins translating them to vision for transmission to the brain through the optical nerve. In total, the cornea accounts for around 65 to 75 percent of the eye's focusing ability. • TIPS FOR CARE OF OUR EYES • 1. Eat for Good Vision • 2. Quit Smoking • 3. Wear Sunglasses • 4. Use Safety Eyewear • 5. Look Away From the Computer Screen • 6. Visit Your Eye Doctor Regularly

Whenever I wake up in morning, I still feel like tired, I am unable to open my eyes properly, so please suggest me.

FICO, DNB Ophtalmology

Whenever I wake up in morning, I still feel like tired, I am unable to open my eyes properly, so please suggest me.
There may be multiple reasons for your complains: (1) inadequate sleep. Do you have an irregular sleep cycle? that may be the reason for your tiredness. (2) improper posture while sleeping. Do you sleep in odd positions such as face down? improper sleeping posture also may cause feelings of fatigue, etc. (3) allergy of the eyes. Certain allergies prevent proper eye opening and can cause a person to feel tired and fatigued. If you have allergy of the eyes, make it a point to maintain eye hygiene. Avoid rubbing your eyes with handkerchief or fingers. Start washing your eye daily with clean hands and clean water daily for 4-5 times. Use a lubricant eye drop and an antihistamine eye drop. Use both of them 4 times daily and maintain an interval of 10 minutes between 2 types of drops. (4) systemic issues. Are you on any systemic medications? if yes, that may be the cause for your tiredness. Excessive obesity leads to a phenomenon known as postural hypoventilation syndrome. This means that the person suffering from this problem has improper breathing during sleep and has occasional periods of suffocation as well. Thus, this should be taken seriously and treatment should be sought from a physician. (5) excessive drinking and smoking may also cause the symptoms of tiredness and inability to open eye completely. This is an avoidable cause. All said and done, you should maintain eye hygiene by washing eyes regularly. Avoid rubbing your eyes with any form of cloth or your fingers. If your problems persist, it would be a better idea to consult an eye specialist in person and get your eyes checked and examined thoroughly. Hope my suggestions helped you-take care-regards.

Importance of Eye Examination

Cornea Cataract & Lasik
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
Importance of Eye Examination

Sight is one of our most important senses. To ensure that your vision is not compromised, regular eye examinations are essential. This is regardless of age and overall health because the only way to diagnose conditions in the eye in the early stages is with a comprehensive eye exam. By arresting them in the early stages, many eye disorders can be easily controlled and treated.

During a routine eye examination, the doctor will look into a number of aspects of your eye's health. An eye examination can also indicate serious health issues like diabetes, macular degeneration and glaucoma. Some of the conditions an eye doctor looks for during an eye exam are:

  • Refractive error: If you already have a prescription this will be checked. In other cases, the strength of the eye muscles is checked for near sightedness, far sightedness and astigmatism which can be corrected with lasik surgery, spectacles or lenses. The earlier a refractive error is corrected, the lower are its chances of increasing. When it comes to children, they often do not realize signs of vision deterioration and hence, an eye examination becomes essential.
  • Amblyopia: This is a condition where one eye has a much higher refractive error than the other or where the eyes are misaligned. If this is not treated in time, amblyopia can stunt vision in the affected eye and result in blindness.
  • Strabismus: Crossed or turned eyes are termed as cases of strabismus. This is caused by the misalignment of the eyes and can cause problems with depth perception. This can lead to amblyopia and eventual blindness if not treated in time.
  • Focusing and communicative problems between the eyes: An eye examination can also determine problems with focusing on objects. With children this can be a sign of underdeveloped focusing skills while in adults it can be a symptom of presbyopia or age related diminished focusing ability. Your doctor will also check how well your eyes work together. If they do not work in tandem, it can cause headaches, eye strains and problems with reading.
  • Diseases: By looking at the blood vessels and retina of the eyes, doctors can detect signs of high blood pressure, cholesterol etc. Leaks in the blood vessels or bleeding in the eyes can also be a sign of diabetes or swelling of the macula.
  • Age related conditions: As with the rest of the body, the eye tissues and muscles also degenerate with time. Cataract is one of the most common age related issues that affect the eyes.
