It is a normal Phenomenon and nothing too serious regarding your eyess.This is very similar to the effect that you get when you're standing there at a party and someone takes a photo, and you get those spots in front of your eyes from the flashes and you just can't see anything. It’s because of something called photo-bleaching and it happens to the cells in your retina which is the light sensitive bit at the back of your eye. It’s populated with cells called rods and cones, and these are full of light sensitive pigments. Normally, in a normal situation, you get light as particles called photons coming into your eye, these stimulate the cells by changing this light sensitive pigment, which is called retinal, into a slightly different form and they stimulate the cells to send electrical impulses to your brain. But if you get a really bright light like a flash or if you look at the sun for a long time or even just a really bright light bulb, this sends the cells into overdrive and they get really overexcited, and it takes them a little while to calm down. So then when you look at a normal level of light, like a wall,or in a dark area you get these kind of black spots where you've been looking at light where the cells have been over stimulated. So, you have lost the photo pigment in that particular area temporarily because it’s been broken down by the photons of light hitting it, and when it regenerates, it comes back then you see normal again, but while it’s regenerating up the pigment because of the overexposure, you see a less intense spot, so you therefore see a dark spot. It’s worth noting actually that the retina is less active when light shines on it than in the dark. It’s in fact deactivated by light rather than activated by light.

Hello there are many causes for redness of eyes mainly allergy, infection, inflammation and dry eyes etc. 1. Redness + itching: allergy 2. Redness + pain + watering + decreased vision: infection 3. Redness + pain: inflammation 4. Redness foreign body sensation: dryness if there is only redness then it is normal as slight exposure to dust, temperature or air or eyes may be red in morning. Stress may also cause redness. I usually do not treat when there is only redness, you can 1. Blink a lot 2. Wash eyes with fresh water 3. Cold compresses 4. Use lubricating eye drop like flogel these measures will help to keep your eyes healthy but it will not have any effect on redness (treating general redness alone is not necessary also) having said that you should consult local ophthalmologist for proper examination and treatment. There is no relation between redness and number of glasses.

Hello. You could use preservative free eye drops (eg. Genteal eye drops 4 to 5 times daily for a period of 3 months. I have a few suggestions for you regarding the usage of computers, mobile phones and books. Staring at the computer continuously causes us to subconsciously blink less than normal. This causes the tear film on the surface of the eye to dry up. The result of this is pain, discomfort, etc. You are already following the rule of" 20" this means that every 20 minutes, take a gap of 20 seconds, blink your eyes actively 20 times and focus at an object which is minimum 20 feet away. This will help in relieving your eyes from the continuous strain that is caused due to staring. Another suggestions regarding the usage of computers is to maintain a proper posture. The computer must be positioned at the same height as your eye level. The neck should not be inadvertently flexed or extended. Roughly, an angle of 90 degrees should be maintained between your upper body and thighs. Likewise, a similar angle (90 degrees) should be maintained between your lower legs and thighs. Also the angle between your hands and arms should be roughly 90 degrees. This is the healthy ergonomic way of sitting while using a computer. Maintenance of proper posture would help in further relieving the symptoms of eye discomfort and pain. You could consider preservative free lubricant eye drops 4 to 5 times daily. These eye drops would ensure that your eyes stay well lubricated and fresh. All these suggestions may take a while to sink in and imbibe in your routine. Once followed, they are sure to work wonders for you. Hope my suggestions help you. Take care. Regards-dr. Chaitanya.

Keratoconus can be controlled and not cured c3r corneal collagen crosslinking is treatment of choice to halt progression in cases which progress. Your age is 31, and keratoconus usually stabilises by 35 or 40. If not severe, usually does not cause blindness.

Is there any exercises or remedies to improve the eye sight completely that make me free of spectacles?

Is there any exercises or remedies to improve the eye sight completely that make me free of spectacles?
Hello. Unfortunately, there is no such exercise which would make you free of spectacles. Yes, there are a few precautions which would prevent the spectacle power from increasing further. Let me enumerate the diet necessary for healthy eyes. (1) green leafy vegetables including spinach, sprouts, cabbage, beetroot. (2) fruits-blue-berries, black-berries, strawberries, raspberries, kiwi fruit, grapes, pineapple, pomegranate, grapes, guava. (3) dry-fruits: almonds, walnuts, apricots, dates. (4) cereals: oats, barley, millets. (5) drink a cup of green tea daily. (6) drink a glass of milk daily. Also, I have a few suggestions for you regarding the usage of computers, mobile phones and books. Follow the rule of" 20" this means that every 20 minutes, take a gap of 20 seconds, blink your eyes actively 20 times and focus at an object which is minimum 20 feet away. This will help in relieving your eyes from the continuous strain that is caused due to staring. Staring at the computer continuously causes us to subconsciously blink less than normal. This causes the tear film on the surface of the eye to dry up. The result of this is pain, discomfort, etc. Another suggestions regarding the usage of computers is to maintain a proper posture. The computer must be positioned at the same height as your eye level. The neck should not be inadvertently flexed or extended. Remember the rule of 90. Roughly, an angle of 90 degrees should be maintained between your upper body and thighs. Likewise, a similar angle (90 degrees) should be maintained between your lower legs and thighs. Also the angle between your hands and arms should be roughly 90 degrees. This is the healthy ergonomic way of sitting while using a computer. Maintenance of proper posture would help in further relieving the symptoms of eye discomfort and pain. Also remember the rule of 1. At least 1 time in a day, wash your eyes with clean hands and clean water in a gentle manner. Exercise for at least 1 hour in a day. Try to spend 1 hour with nature. (eg. In a park, garden, etc.) you could consider preservative free lubricant eye drops 4 to 5 times daily. These eye drops would ensure that your eyes stay well lubricated and fresh. All these suggestions may take a while to sink in and imbibe in your routine. Once followed, they are sure to work wonders for you. Take care-regards.

Hi, as the power of eye is so high, only laser lasik surgery would help you, consult an opthalmic surgeon (eye surgeon) for further details and recommendation.

Yes you can for lasik. Some screening test are done before the procedure, to know whether it is feasible the your eyes to go for lasik or not. The number can be completely removed with it. But you should fulfill the criteria before going for lasik.

No sir. In jaundice the white portion of the eye becomes yellowish, not red. But if you are having any abdominal pain, vomitting, loss of appetite then pls visit your physician who can check you to rule out the cause.
