There is no medication or food for improving eyesight or to get rid of glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser as your age is now 28 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. As you are not comfortable with contact lens then go for lasik. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

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.

I have cataract in my left eye in my early age 40 years what is reasons behind it.

I have cataract in my left eye in my early age 40 years what is reasons behind it.
The lens inside the eye works much like a camera lens, focusing light onto the retina for clear vision. It also adjusts the eye's focus, letting us see things clearly both up close and far away. The lens is mostly made of water and protein. The protein is arranged in a precise way that keeps the lens clear and lets light pass through it.But as we age, some of the protein may clump together and start to cloud a small area of the lens. This is a cataract, and over time, it may grow larger and cloud more of the lens, making it harder to see.No one knows for sure why the eye's lens changes as we age, forming cataracts. But certain factors that may cause cataracts or are associated with cataract development. Besides advancing age, cataract risk factors include: • Ultraviolet radiation from sunlight and other sources------------------- • Diabetes-------------- • Hypertension--------------- • Obesity-------------- • Smoking---------- • Prolonged use of corticosteroid medications-------------- • Statin medicines used to reduce cholesterol------------- • Previous eye injury or inflammation-------------- • Previous eye surgery------------ • Hormone replacement therapy-------------- • Significant alcohol consumption------------ • High myopia-------------- • Family history--------------------------- One theory of cataract formation that's gaining favor is that many cataracts are caused by oxidative changes in the human lens. This is supported by nutritional studies that show fruits and vegetables high in antioxidants may help prevent certain types of cataracts.---------------------------- Prevention of Cataract--------------------------- Although it iss still a debate if Cataract can be prevented but a number of studies suggest certain nutrients and nutritional supplements may reduce your risk of cataracts.-------------------------Some studies have shown that higher dietary intakes of vitamin E and the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin from food and supplements were associated with significantly decreased risks of cataract.--------------Good food sources of vitamin E include sunflower seeds, almonds and spinach.---------------------------------- Good sources of lutein and zeaxanthin include spinach, kale and other green, leafy vegetables.----------------------Other studies have shown antioxidant vitamins such as vitamin C and foods containing omega-3 fatty acids may reduce cataract risk.-------------------Another step you can take to reduce your risk of cataracts is to wear protective sunglasses that block 100 percent of the sun's UV rays when you are outdoors.-------------------------- Myself is a homoeopath andI have found inmy clinical practise that Cataracts in the first stage can be prevented with some very effective homoeopathic medicines along with Specific Diet and Exercises.Consult me with your details.

Hello lybrate-user. Burning of eyes in the evening /night time could be due to allergy of eyes. During the course of the day, we tend to expose the eyes to a lot of dust, pollution, sunlight, etc. Additionally, we tend to rub the eyes with fingers, clothes, handkerchief, etc. All this cumulatively causes a lot of eye allergy and tends to cause burning and irritation. The proper way to get rid of your problems would be to maintain eye hygiene. Wash your eye with clean hands and clean water daily at least 3-4 times. Avoid rubbing your eyes with fingers or handkerchief or clothes. Use a lubricant eye drops 4 times a day. In case the problem persists, it would be a better idea to have a look at your eyes in person.. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care. Regards. Dr. Chaitanya.

I have problem in my eyes due to overstraining on mobile. My eyes get tiered very fast. What can I do?

Follow the rule of 20. After every 20 minutes, take a break for 20 seconds; blink your eyes actively for 20 times and subsequently focus at an object placed 20 feet away from you. This will help in eliminating the over strain. Also try to maintain a proper posture while you use the mobile or a computer. 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. Maintenance of proper posture would help in further relieving the symptoms of eye discomfort and pain.

Hi. 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. 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. 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. 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. Cheers.
