I have nose running and eye itching problem.What can i do?

DNB (ENT), MBBS
Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist,
Running nose, sneezing & itching of the eyes, palate & nose are most commonly symptoms of allergic rhinosinusitis. Early upper respiratory infections & eosinophillia need to be ruled out. In allergy symptoms remain consistent and will decrease/increase depending on factors like weather, stress or exposure to dust/smoke. In infections symptoms evolve with additional complaints like fever, headache or throat pain. Blood tests can distinguish these conditions if diagnosis is in doubt. Most often mild, short duration symptoms as you mentioned should settle down with an once daily oral dosage of an antihistamine like tab. Cetzine 10mg or tab. Allegra 120mg.

Hello. The foreign particles only damages the sclera of the eye and wouldn't affect the eyesight as such. But as a precautionary measure, you can take Arnica 30 and Calendula 30 - both thrice daily for 1 week and put Euphrasia eye drops twice daily.

This is because of over exertion,which causes dryness or watering of eyes. Get your eye test done. If vision is normal then avoid prolong working on computer. Take frequent breaks in order go give rest to your eyes. You may contact opthalmologist too..

Glasses, contact lenses and surgery are the only three options. If you not comfortable with contact lens or glasses, you can plan lasik surgery after a proper prelasik checkup. Lasik is a simple laser procedure which changes the shape of the cornea so that the light rays fall on the retina properly. Basically a flap is made on the cornea, the laser is then given to cornea and flap is reposited. It is a painless procedure. It is a day care procedure does not require any injections, does not require admission, you can simply resume your duties in 2 days. Cost varies from centre to centre. Side effects are usually limited to dryness of eyes for few months. We can do lasik anytime after age of 18 years. You need to undergo proper prelasik checkup to decide whether lasik is safe for you or not.

My mom has red eyes for last 3 days. What should I do than my mom feeling better for it.
Eye redness is most often due to swollen or dilated blood vessels. This makes the surface of the eye look red .There are many causes of a red eye or eyes like infection, allergy. foreign body in eyes. Some are medical emergencies and some are a cause for concern, but not an emergency. Others are nothing to worry about.Consult ur local eye specilist to see what is the cause

You are most likely suffering from a condition called cluster headache. In this condition there is headache, redness/ watering of eyes and nose on one side. The headache is severe and poking like, occurs in cyclical pattern in clusters. Acute episodes of cluster headache are relieved by oxygen therapy and analgesics you should consult a pain specialist in your city for preventive medication and treatment like sphenopalatine ganglion block to get relief.

Foggy and Cloudy Vision - A Sign Of Cataract?

DOMS, MBBS

Foggy and Cloudy Vision - A Sign Of Cataract?

Cataract is clouding of clear natural lens present inside the eye, this is a major cause of decreased vision in elderly. Cataracts can occur in one or both eyes, usually developing very slowly. Things look blurry, hazy, less colourful and less sharp with cataract.

Most cataracts are related to ageing, however many other factors can either increase the rate of formation or cause cataract formation. 

Causes of Cataract Formation-

  1. Ageing: Most common cause. As the proteins present in the lens of the eye degenerates over the years ( just like any other organ) cataract is formed. If you are having Diabetes or hypertension, the rate of formation gets accelerated.

  2. Radiation: Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays, especially UV-B rays, results in cataract in your eyes. Wearing sunglasses in the daytime helps in slowing down the process of cataract.

  3. Genes: Many genetic disorders can result in congenital cataract ( cataracts present since birth) or early formation. Like in Lowe syndrome or Down's syndrome. 

  4. Lifestyle Choices: Cigarette smoking, long hours of sun exposure regularly, antioxidant, poor diet etc. are responsible for the onset of cataract.

How To Detect Cataract?

Certain signs and symptoms suggest the existence of cataract in the eye. Depending on the type and level of cataract, problems in vision occurs. The main symptom is foggy cloudy vision as if seeing through a dirty glass window. 

Other Symptoms are- 

  1. inability to see clearly in bright light (during the day) which becomes better in dim light ( evening and night) and vice versa. 
  2. watery, tired eyes - mild pain in and around eyes. 
  3. yellow tinge in vision
  4. Halos around light bulbs or bright light. 

If you are experiencing above symptoms and having problems in viewing things clearly, consult an ophthalmologist and get your eyes checked.

Wear protective glasses while you r travelling to avoid dust and dirt entering the eyes. Dip a handkerchief in cold water and keep it over closed eyes for 2 minutes during breaks, you will feel better. Also get your eyes checked for any spectacle number.

Hi, I want to know the difference between FACO, MICS and FAMTO. I also want to know which lence is best/Safe for both visions (Far and Short). The patient is aged 58, diagonsed very initial stage cataract, enhancement in numbers of glasses from 1 to 2. She is diagonsed for Cataract surgery. Doctor also said that he may remove her glasses by surgery.

Phaco Development Program, Fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology, DNB Ophtalmology, MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Mysore
I think you mean phaco. It is actually short for phacoemulsification which is a type of cataract surgery where we emulsify the cataract in the eye. It requires a small incision. Depending upon the type of lens you opt the incision given will vary form 2. 6mm to 3. 2mm. Mics is a variant of phaco where the incision will be 2. 2mm. In femto the incisions are given by laser and the cataract will be softened by laser but the rest of the procedure will be done by phaco itself. If you want to opt for intaocular lenses which will give both clarity for near and distant vision then you will have to go for multi-focal iols. It has both advantages and disadvantages (like glare etc.) discuss it with the surgeon itself.

First of all rule out any organic cause. Get checked for thyroid, bp, sugar, lipids and testosterone levels etc. If everything is normal, then go for vascular assessment (penile doppler). If that too is normal, then it is psychogenic and you can consult a psychiatrist. For, more details and explanation. If you want to consult me, ask a private chat/call/video call through lybrate.

Watering can be commonly due to allergy or infection, you need to visit nearby eye surgeon to check that. Also get your glass power checked take frequent breaks while studying and dip a handkerchief in cold water and keep it over closed eyes for 2 minutes during breaks, you will feel better.
