Smartphone and Kids- It's not so smart effect on eyes.

Smartphone and Kids-  It's not so smart effect on eyes.

Is this a common sight at your home?

Parents using smartphone may not experience much harm but your little ones are prone to serious consequences which rarely anyone tells you. Read on. (early myopia, crossed eye, dry eyes, attention deficit, aggressive behavior, poor concentration and of course obesity leading to diabetes and hypertension later are the consequences)

 

Many pediatric eye doctors believe that heavy computer (smartphone is even worse) use among children puts them at risk for early myopia.

 

Haven't you seen today's generation wearing more specs than ever before? remember lasik lasers for eyeglass removal is not as safe as it is made out to be.

 

Symptoms of dry eye disease were more common in children who spent more time on smartphones and less time outdoors than other young people.

 

Staring at smartphones, computers and other screens has been linked to reduced blinking, which can lead to faster evaporation of the tear film and increase the risk of dry-eye disease, it's a most common problem among it professionals and now it's affecting children who are just 10 years old.

 

Smartphones also have a short watching distance due to their small screens that can tire the eyes.

 

 

Can you afford burning eyes in your child where the tear glands have stopped tear production and needs lifelong lubricating eye drops?

Excessive smartphone use may lead to a rare form of strabismus, or" crossed eyes" known as acute acquired comitant esotropia (aace). Strabismus most often appears in infancy, but sometimes kids develop it suddenly.

 

Computer use demands fine motor skills from young eyes that are not well developed. Only when the visual system matures is a child better able to handle the stress of a computer on that system. Remember brain and eyes are linked, a poor reception by eyes leads to poor mental development.

 

What to do now?

1) push your child to play outdoor sports (must).

 

2) before starting school eyes must be checked by an experienced doctor, serious eye problem if found early can save your child vision.

 

3) please limit the smartphone exposure of your child. Their eyes are not same as yours. Their brain development is also incomplete and eyes play a major role in development of brain.

 

4) encourage kids to take 20-second breaks from the computer every 20 minutes to minimize the development of eye focusing problems and eye irritation. (some eye doctors call this the" 20-20 rule")

 

5) check the ergonomics of the workstation. For young and small children, make sure the computer workstation is adjusted to their body size. The recommended distance between the monitor and the eye for children is 18 to 28 inches.

 

Viewing the computer screen closer than 18 inches can strain the eyes. For smartphone, the answer is complete avoidance for kids less than 10 years. Smartphone is causing much more harm than desktop due to its small screen size and convergent

Hello. 1. Your eye sight is not bad. So do not panic 2. 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 25 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.

How to deal with eye squint in adults? Are there any eye exercises or squint surgery is the only option?

How to deal with eye squint in adults? Are there any eye exercises or squint surgery is the only option?
Hi, squints in adults can be treated using several methods, including: eye muscle exercises glasses containing prisms eye muscle surgery muscle exercises can be helpful in treating a form of squints in adults in which the eyes cannot align themselves for close work or reading. However, eye muscle exercises are rarely useful in other cases of squints in adults. Eye glasses with prisms can correct mild double vision associated with squints in adults. The prisms can be worn on the outside of the eye glass frames or can be manufactured directly into the lens itself. Prism eye glasses usually cannot correct more severe cases of double vision where images are far apart or double vision caused by weak or tight muscles. Eye muscle surgery is the most common treatment for squints. Typically, squints occur when the muscles surrounding the eyes are either too stiff or too weak. Squint surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis using general or local anesthesia. You can often return to your normal activities within a few days. More than one surgery may be needed to treat this condition depending on the severity of the case. Consult an opthalmologist (eye specialist) for detailed information.

It can be diagnosed by the ophthalmologist only. But if you feel that you having that (I cannot say without hard facts - reports), then go for Naturamore male powder one spoon morning and evening. This contains all sorts of minerals and vitamins; as night blindness is caused because of deficiency of Vitamin A. Still if you have any query, in which I can help you, just let me know. Take care. :)

Fellowship in Comprehensive Ophthalmology, DOMS
Ophthalmologist, Sangrur
Symptoms of glaucoma are decreased vision in acute cases, photophobia, pain etc. But many of glaucoma patients do not have any sumptoms and they are diagnosed on routine eye check up. To know glaucoma, you have to consult eye specilist and get retinal (optic disc, and iop) evaluation done. Glaucoma can be managed by medicines.

Hello lybrate-user. I have a few suggestions for you: (1) get a physician opinion for assessment of various systems in the body. If needed, a neurological opinion would be good. (2) get your blood pressure assessed (mostly it is likely to be normal). (3) avoid tobacco consumption in any form (tobacco chewing, smoking) (4) avoid mental stress if possible. If the assessment by the physician is normal, you could try meditation. In meditation, after closing your eyes, it would be a good idea to focus at a point between the 2 eyes located on the center of the forehead. The basic idea of meditation is to attain a thoughtless state. This may be achieved by passing through various stages. In the initial stages the mind is bound to get a thousand different thoughts with the eyes closed. Allow this to happen. Do not resist the thoughts. Just try and focus on the hypothetical third eye. This will gradually bring you to the peaceful thoughtless final stage of meditation. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care.

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 Homoeopathic medicine EUPHRASIA 30 ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 2 drops direct on tongue every 2-3 hrly CINERARIA /EUPHRASIA EYEDROPS ( SBL ) pour into eyes 1-2 drops 3 times daily

Hello lybrate-user. The symptoms experienced by your mother are suggestive of inadequate eye hygiene that seems to be causing infection as well. I would advice a combination of eye drops along with proper eye hygiene maintenance. I have the following suggestions for her: (1) avoid rubbing the eyes with fingers, handkerchief, dupatta, cloth, etc. (2) wash eyes daily 3 to 4 times with clean hands and clean water in a gentle manner. (3) avoid dust, sunlight exposure to the eyes. Protect them using proper eye glasses, helmets, etc. (4) use a lubricant eye drop 4 to 5 times in a day (eg. Systane ultra eye drops) (5) use an antihistamine eye drop 3 times in a day (eg. Olopat eye drops, i-kul plus eye drops) (6) if there is discharge emanating from the eyes, use an antibiotic eye drops (eg. Moxifloxacin eye drops 3 times in a day) hope my suggestions were of help.

Hi pavithra if your belly is lowering your self-confidence and giving you sleepless nights, here are the tips to give you flatter and fitter tummy. 1. Add fiber to your diet constipation distends your belly, add veggies and fruits to your daily diet to relieve you of constipation, reduce intakes of refined cereals like maida, noodles, pasta and whole grains instead add dalia and oats. This would relieve you of constipation and bloat to give you a flat tummy. 2. Decrease sodium intake sodium retains water in the body and hence your belly swells up, reduce intake of junk food as it contains a lot of sodium. Stop adding extra salt to dishes, also packaged and processed food contains a lot of salts so better avoid it. 3. Increase potassium foods rich in potassium help you get rid of balancing sodium, fruits are very good source of potassium, adding them to their daily diet not only provides this nutrient but also increase the fiber content of your daily intake 4. Avoid sugar alcohols we do not completely digest these low-calorie sweeteners usually found in flavoured low-calorie drinks, diabetic and sugar-free foods. Bacteria in a large intestine ferment during gas and distension so check food labels and avoid sorbitol, xylitol and lacitol. 5. Increase liquids drinking plenty of liquids helps flush out toxins from the body. Keep yourself hydrated with at least 8 glasses of water, also include lassi, coconut, water, lemon water in your daily routine. Make sure to include homemade soups only, as packaged soups are not that nutritious and contain added sodium in them. 6. Carbonated beverages and alcohol these give you extended bellies and your dream of flat tummy falls flat. Alcohol gives you empty calories with zero nutrition. 7. Probiotic curds include low fat curd in your diet regime as it contains live bacteria which tame bloating by increasing intestinal motility. 8. Method of cooking no doubt salads and sprouts are good for our health but if experience distension with them then saute, blanch or steam them also fried foods are best to be avoided not only because of their high-calorie content but also because frying leads to changes in oil composition which may result in bloating. 9. Avoid chewing gums and candies while chewing them air enters our digestive system, giving us feeling of bloating, also candies are zero in nutrition but contain loads of calories. Also, eat slowly as gulping down increases air passage to the digestive system 10. Individual tolerances some individuals are more intolerant to certain foods like radish, capsicum, tea, cauliflower etc, so with your own personal experience omit them from your diet.

Hello. I think you have allergic conjunctivitis. 1. Eye allergies, called allergic conjunctivitis, are a common condition that occurs when the eyes react to something that irritates them (called an allergen). 2. 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 a. Avoid or limit contact with the substance causing the problem. B. 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 medicine that can cure allergy. Only way is to stay away from all those things that you are allergic to. For high contrast screen use antiglare glasses cold compresses use lubricating eyedrop.

Hello lybrate-user. There is no muscle weakness. This is all due to axial length or curvature of eye ball in most of cases. All you require is pair of glasses.

Using laptop does not keep decreasing the eyesight so rapidly, but avoid if you can. There is probably another reason for your eyesight. Get a regular check up. To remove blackheads, -you get a blackhead reveal tape. -you can scrub the area, give steam with hot water and massage with scrub again, then remove with a blackhead remover tool (it's a small metal tool with a head)
