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 Eye infections or inflammation can cause redness as well as possible itching, discharge, pain, or vision problems. These may be due to: • Blepharitis: Swelling along the edge of the eyelid. • Conjunctivitis: Swelling or infection of the clear tissue that lines the eyelids and covers the surface of the eye (the conjunctiva). This is often referred to as "pink eye." • Corneal ulcers: Sores on the cornea most often caused by a serious bacterial or viral infection. • Uveitis: Inflammation of the uvea, which includes the iris, ciliary body, and choroid. The cause is most often not known. It may be related to an autoimmune disorder, infection, or exposure to toxins. The type of uveitis that causes the worst red eye is called iritis, in which only the iris is inflamed. Other potential causes of eye redness include: • Colds or allergies . • Acute glaucoma: A sudden increase in eye pressure that is extremely painful and causes serious visual problems. This is a medical emergency. The more common form of glaucoma is chronic and gradual. • Corneal scratches: Injuries caused by sand, dust, or overuse of contact lenses. Sometimes, a bright red spot, called a subconjunctival hemorrhage, will appear on the white of the eye. This often happens after straining or coughing, which causes a broken blood vessel on the surface of the eye. Most often, there is no pain and your vision is normal. It is almost never a serious problem. Because the blood leaks into the conjunctiva, which is clear, you cannot wipe or rinse the blood away. Like a bruise, the red spot will go away within a week or two. So,visit a local eyespecialist.The diagnosis of your problem in eyes can only be made by local examination of eyes

Hi, thoroughly wash your eye with plain water. Try and remove whatever went inside the eye. There will be some redness for a day but it will reduce on its own. If the redness doesnt reduce, you can put" tears" eye drops in your eye.

Simple trick is to reverse cycle. Wake her up and take her out at 6 am everyday for just 15 days. Do not allow her to sleep in the afternoon or any other time except after 8.30 pm. The cycle will be restored. You got to be creative and firm in waking her up early in the morning. Keep window curtains open in the night. Sunlight is great sleep repeller.

What Should You Know About Diabetic Macular Oedema

Cornea Cataract & Lasik
Ophthalmologist
Ask Free Question
The diabetic eye is considered to be the leading cause of the blindness among the working age. It is usually caused by the change in the blood vessels on the retina of the eye. Retina is that layer of the eye which is light sensitive. In case of diabetic macular oedema, the blood vessels cause the fluid to leak into the retina.

How does diabetic macular oedema cause vision loss?
The loss of vision only occurs when the fluid reaches the macula. Macula is the center of the retina which is responsible for a sharp vision. When the fluid reaches the macula it builds up and causes inflammation. Initially this is not noticed but with time the diabetic macular oedema causes a change in the vision making it more blurred. A healthy macula is very essential for a good vision.

Who is at risk of diabetic macular oedema?
People with type 1 and type 2 diabetes are at a higher risk of getting diabetic macular oedema. Also other risk factors are:
1. About 0ne in three people with diabetes develop macular oedema
2. Poor control of blood sugars
3. High blood pressure
4. High cholesterol level
5. Pregnancy
6. In smokers

How to reduce the risks of diabetic macula oedema?
The risk of diabetic macula oedema can be reduced by quitting smoking, and to make sure that blood sugar and cholesterol levels are under control. This is achieved by regularly measuring the cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

How is diabetic macular oedema detected?
Diabetic macular oedema can be detected during regular visits to the doctor. Patients with diabetes should be offered screening tests. Digital photographs of the patients can be taken as they show the early signs of diabetic macular oedema, though changes in vision might not be noticed at this time.

What happens when you attend the medical retina clinic?
When you go for an eye checkup you will undergo a comprehensive examination which includes:

1. Visual acuity test: this is a sight test which measures how well you can see the different distances

2. Eye pressure test: this test is done to measure the pressure of the eyes and usually drops which numb the eyes are used when this test is conducted

3. Dilated eye examination: in this the drops are placed in the eye to dilate the pupils and then the back of the eye is examined.

4. Fluorescein angiography: this is a diagnostic test in which an injection of fluorescein dye is given in the hand and then the photographs are taken.

5. Optical coherence tomography: this is done to measure the retinal swelling.

If the discolouration is since childhood there is nothing that can be done to whiten your eyes. Just llike few people have dark coloured skin some people have brownish tinge in the conjunctiva. There is nothing to worry about.

Hi, the skin around the eyes is ten times thinner and sensitive than the skin on the face. As we age, skin loses its elasticity and becomes even thinner due to a breakdown of collagen. This can be further aggravated by sun exposure, smoking, and other environmental exposures. The points which are important in maintaining healthy skin around the eyes: -drink plenty of water. Water plays a crucial role maintaining the elasticity of skin. -avoid smoking cigarettes. Nicotine constricts blood vessels in the face and under the eyes. Constricted vessels also make it difficult for nutrients to be absorbed, which leads to a breakdown of collagen. -stay out of the sun. Overexposure to ultraviolet rays causes melanocytes, the pigment-producing cells, to mature abnormally. This results in age spots and uneven pigmentation. Uv rays are responsible for up to 90% of aging and can add several years to your appearance. -wear sunglasses to avoid squinting and protection from uv-rays. -get plenty of rest. Fatigue can cause skin to look pale and gaunt. -limit alcohol intake. Excessive drinking can cause dehydration, so limit yourself to a glass or two of wine every week -use cotton balls when removing makeup to avoid unnecessary tugging and pulling on the delicate tissue. -use a quality professionally recommended skin care product for the area around the eyes. Apply homoeopathic under-eye cream by bakson twice a day daily.
