Does patching of good eye help reduce squint in the other eye? What are other options available to reduce squint in eye.
Hello. Patching therapy is definitely useful if done at a specific age range. It helps in reducing the squint as well as improving the visual acuity. Other options available to improve squint in the eye are: (1) surgery for the squint. It should be done after patching therapy has been tried or else if there is a risk of vision loss in the affected eye due to amblyopia. (2) certain eye drops are useful and act as an indirect patch for the eye. (3) glasses. Certain types and degrees of squints are correctable by glasses. A squint specialist would be the best person to consult in this regard. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care.

I am wearing eye lenses from last one week does they are harmful to my eyes.
Eye lenses are not harmful to eyes if worn properly with few precautions. Use lenses for not more than 8 hours a day. Do not wear while sleeping, washing face or taking bath. Never keep lenses in water or saline, always store in a solution. Keep the lenses case closed always. Always clean the lens with lens solution before and after using. Use soft contact lenses. If you find redness or watering while using lenses, discontinue and show to an ophthalmologist in view of allergy to lens material or lens solution and needful can be done.

hello...i think ur child has conjunctivitis or else there is some trauma leading to bleeding...consult your local eye specilist

I am almost 27 years old, male. I got LASIK done about 1.5 years back. Post the surgery, I'v always had some problem or the other with my eyes. I have on many many occasions felt one of my eyes had become smaller. I also had an eye infection soon after my LASIK but was it had not relation with that. I'v had difficulty watching movies in theatre/laptop most of the times. On and off, after consulting the doctor I have taken tear lubricants. This problem is especially severe in winter, I think. Now, since the past 2.5 months the problem has been increasing. Now I have immediate dry eyes while using laptop, tv or driving. Even if I use the lubricant five minutes before I sit down infant of the laptop, I get uncomfortable within minutes. One side of my heads starts to get strained, and it reaches the back of my head. This stress in my head then lasts for a while even if I don't strain my eyes. I have also been taking omega-3. I generally drink decent amount of water as well. I am also finding it very difficult to capture everything in front of me, which causes difficulty in driving/watching tv. Also, please note there have been days where I did not use laptop/tv/drive, but even then I get the strain in my head by evening. I have difficulty looking at people after a few seconds, and eventually become so cripple by night that I have to go to bed. As the evening progresses, so does my need to use the lubricant. What can be done?

Hello. I think you have allergic conjunctivitis. 1. Eye allergies, called allergic conjunctivitis, are a common condition that occurs when the eyes react to something that irritates them (called an allergen). 2. The eyes produce a substance called histamine to fight off the allergen. As a result, the eyelids and conjunctiva (the thin, filmy membrane that covers the inside of your eyelids) become red, swollen and itchy, with tearing and burning. The key to treating eye allergies is a. Avoid or limit contact with the substance causing the problem. B. Avoid rubbing eyes instead do cold compresses. C. Use antiallergic eyedrop like olopat eyedrop twice daily d. Lubricating eyedrop like flogel thrice daily e. Use mild steroid like flurisone in pulse dose in severe allergy this will help you I am very sorry dear to say that there is no medicine that can cure allergy. Only way is to stay away from all those things that you are allergic to. This is a provisional diagnosis. Consult your ophthalmologist for detailed examination.

Hi. The mminimum age should be 18 years though it should be decided judicially by the eye specialist assessing your eyes. Operations done to remove the refractive error (power) of the eyes are known as refractive surgery (lasik). There are certain basic criteria that most patients need to fulfill before they can safely undergo refractive surgery. To enumerate, they are: (1) stability of refraction: the power of the eyes should have become stable for a period of 1.5 years minimum without any change. (2) curvature of the cornea should be tested by a technique which is known as topography. (3) thickness of the cornea should be measured by a test known as pachymetry. The minimum thickness required is 550 microns. (4) dilated retina evaluation: this is one of the most important tests that should be performed by a trained retina specialist. This test helps in detection of any offensive lesion on the central or peripheral retina. In case of any retinal abnormality, these should be treated before undergoing the surgery for number reduction. (5) there should be no pre-existent corneal abnormality. (example: corneal scar, opacity, defect, etc.) another important suggestion is that whenever you go for the assessment (the above mentioned tests), you should discontinue the use of contact lenses at least 4 weeks prior to the assessment. The reason for this being that use of contact lens temporarily alters the contour of the cornea. It takes around 3-4 weeks for the restoration of the original corneal contour after removal of the contact lens. Another important point is that you, as a patient, should be compliant to put post operative medication in your eyes for at least 2 months. There is bound to be some discomfort, watering, foreign body sensation, pain after the surgery in most cases-you should be ready to tolerate that. A leave from work for 7-10 days after the surgery should be generally sufficient. Last but not the least, you should set realistic expectations from this surgery. Though extremely rare, there is a remote possibility that the surgery may need to be repeated. Also, the need for subsequent treatment for the eye may be required. Thus, you should be compliant enough to trust and follow your eye specialist. Take care, regards.
