Medical treatment has no proven role in improving weak eye sight. Also food has not a major role in improving vision Eating green leafy vegetables ,fresh fruits and fish may keep the eyes healthy. 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.

Hello with homoeopathy you can use glutaract drops (take internally 15 drops mor / eve). With this you can continue your eye drop prescribed by ophthalmologist. You can reduce dosage of eye drop. Homoeopathy medicine will stop further damage to optic nerve. For better management consult privately.

These could be signs of muscle tension headaches or stress headache. What you need is relaxation. Try some muscle relaxation exercises like yoga, meditation etc. If you find that difficult and have sleep problems too then do not hesitate to consult a psychiatrist, online if you prefer.

Namaste Happy Holi. I have been using this eyedrops ( I-Kul Plus) for 2-3 times daily from last 3-4 years and continue to do so. Is it ok ? My eyes turn red when I smoke, so I have to use it. :) Thank you for help.

I-Kul plus contaions Phenylephrine which must not be used for very long periods. Continued use of any eye drops without indication is harmful as the preservatives used can also cause harm. I would not suggest using this for prolonged periods.

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. C. Use antiallergic eyedrop like olopat eyedrop twice daily d. Lubricating eyedrop like flogel thrice daily e. Use mild steroid like flurisone in pulse dose in severe allergy 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. This is a provisional diagnosis. Consult your ophthalmologist for detailed examination.

Depends upon which type of allergy and your age. At 6 yrs, it may be Vernal cattarrh. Cold packs and avoiding rubbing is most important. See your doctor.

No medicine is available till now which cures refractive error. You are suffering from a refractive error namely myopia. It is a condition in which eye length is longer than normal, which increase up to 18 yrs and normally gets stable. No medicine is available which can decrease the length of the eye.

I think on clinical evaluation the appearance of your optic nerve was not healthy. Which lead to a series of investigations. Glaucoma is a group of disorders which results in damage to retinal nerve fibres and presents changes in the optic nerve - classically described as thinning of neuro retinal rim. To confirm this, an OCT and a visual field analysis is done. The IOP or eye pressure is one factor that is closely monitored. From your question I am assuming your field report was suspicious of a neurological cause and an MRI was ordered which showed a tumour. A tumour usually grows and compresses and damages part of the visual pathway which damages the optic nerve and affects vision. 'sedo' tumour is likely a typo. Got no result on this tumour on pubmed. Feel free for any further clarification.

Hi, Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety. In children and teens, sleep also helps support growth and development. Management: Here are five tips everyone can use to help improve the quality of their sleep: Keep your bedroom cool and dark Put away/turn off all electronic devices while preparing for bedtime Stick to a regular bedtime and wake time every day, even on weekends Stop drinking caffeine by the early afternoon and avoid large late-night meals Skip the late-afternoon nap, as it can make it harder to sleep at bedtime Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension. Do regular exercise. Go for a brisk walk in the morning. Medication: Take Schwabe's Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos./ once daily at night for 1month.
