You can undergo laser surgery if your age is above 18 yrs and your number is stable for 1 yr. Complications rate is less than 1%, even lesser with the femtosecond lasik. In private hospital they will charge in range of 35000 to 50000rs for microkeratome assisted surgery and 50000 to 75000 for fem to second lasik in govt set up like aiims delhi they charge around 20000 for femto lasik.

There has been a very small lining in my vision floating types which I searched as EYE FLOATERS. Now after I have started wearing glasses I have more disturbance in the vision. Its very problematic in my studies and work as mostly I am sitting in front of a system or on my mobile phone. Is there any way that I may get my glasses removed and better vision.

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 20 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.

The brain tumour can cause pressure symptoms. As it grows it compresses surrounding brain tissue damaging it. For eyes, it may affecting different cranial nerves which control eye movements resulting in double vision. It may also cause damage to optic nerve. Serial eye examination are important to monitor changes. According you may be suggested further tests like HESS charting for diplopia, automated visual field analysis or VEP. The same may also be monitored by treating neurologist. Press on prisms on glasses may help decrease double vision.
