How much LASIK eye surgery will cost? Is it safe? How much time required to do this surgery?
Hi, Lasik surgery usually should cost approximately 40000 rupees but it’s better to do it before 25 years for good results.

It's nice to see you r well read. Since you r a software professional with obviously high computer usage. Please read up on computer vision syndrome and computer ergonomics. Also few exercises for people with long desk hours. You may be right attributing cause to tension headaches. Stress is one of the most common cause in our times. Learning relaxation exercises, yoga, meditation, reiki, praanayama etc helps us deal more positively with stress. You should consult a physician to rule out major causes. Also an eye exam for refractive error, muscle balance dryness etc. ENT dental and cervical problems can also cause headaches. A physician will refer if required.

Usually redness in eyes on waking up is due to dryness. Also eye strain can cause redness. It will be good if you consult an ophthalmologist. Good wishes.

Hello. There is no medication or food for improving eye sight or to get rid of glasses. Get your vision tested and wear glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser as your age is now 21 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. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

Uveitis can be a tricky eye condition to treat.. finding the underlying cause sometimes help choose the correct immunosuppresants. But Inspite of extensive testing, the underlying disease may be difficult to diagnose. It may become apparent in some years time. Macular edema is a result of chronic inflammation in the eye. For uveitis, long term immunosuppression becomes a necessity...u will need to choose one Inspite of he side effects. Sometimes intra or para ocular steroid injections are given. But these will treat only the eye and not the systemic effects the disease may or may not be having on different organs of ur body. The retina n uvea team at Icare is very competent...trust their judgement and continue treatment there.

Bulging Eyes - 10 Things That May Cause It

Bulging Eyes - 10 Things That May Cause It

There is a marked difference between having big eyes and eyes that bulge abnormally. This abnormality should not be confused with having large eyes. Bulging eyes can be defined as eyes where the white of the eyes is visible above the cornea (circular black portion of the eye). Medically, this is referred to as Proptosis or Exophthalmos. 

Eyes protrude from the eye sockets if there is a swelling of muscles, fat or tissue behind the eyes. This is dangerous because it exposes the cornea and makes it difficult for the eyes to stay moist and lubricated. In extreme cases, it can also put the optic nerve under pressure and lead to potential vision loss. This is especially serious if noticed only in one eye. 

An overactive thyroid gland is one of the most common triggers for bulging eyes. Another common cause for bulging eyes is Graves disease. Graves disease is an autoimmune condition that makes the thyroid gland release cells and antibodies that fuse the eye muscles. This can directly trigger the condition by inflaming the tissue around the eye or indirectly trigger the condition as it also causes hyperthyroidism. 

Other causes for this condition are: 

  1. Any injury that causes bleeding behind the eye 
  2. Vascular Disorders : A build up of blood vessels in the skin or inside the orbit 
  3. Leukemia 
  4. Neuroblastoma or nerve cancer 
  5. Infection

Seeing the white of the eye above the cornea is the most obvious symptom of bulging eyes. Excessive dryness, pain and redness of the eyes are other symptoms of this condition. The patient may also find it difficult to close their eyes completely and have difficulty with eye movements. A doctor may use further blood test and imaging tests to confirm a diagnosis. 

Treatment for bulging eyes depends on the condition triggering it. Usual forms of treatment include: 

  1. Eye drops or artificial tears 
  2. Wearing sunglasses 
  3. Corticosteroids 
  4. Chemotherapy or radiation to treat tumors 
  5. Surgery to repair damaged blood vessels 

In cases where eyes bulge because of Graves disease, the below forms of treatment may also be used: 

  1. Beta blockers 
  2. Anti-thyroid medications 
  3. Removal of the thyroid gland 
  4. Replacement hormones 
  5. Radiation to lower the functioning of the thyroid gland 
  6. Orbital decompression surgery where one or more eye socket walls is removed

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.
