Am suffering with cold and eye pain. Wat can I do for escape from this. And my mother suffer with chest pain. What is the best way to solve.
My eyes start paining after reading for a long time also they become watery and I need to close my eyes for 10 min for normal vision to come back please help.
Contact lenses (cl) are like a layer on top of your eyeball (cornea). Whenever you blink or cloae ypur eyes it completely becomes a part of your body. Thus contact lenses are akin to medicine which you either ingest or inject.
So it is very essential to have a proper selection and ise of contact lenses. Just like your suit, cl ate available over the counter or can be custom made by an eye specialist. So choose wisely
The side effects of a cl doesnot start immediately. So you might get away with an improper cl for even upto some years. But the side effects build up and can start showing its ugly side anytime after you wesr te cl.
Very important is the care you take. Cl abuse is like any other abuse. It leaves a very bad impression on the eye which can be permanent at times.
So please treat your eyes well with proper contact lense.
From last two years I had been facing problem with my eyes. When I drive or go out, lots of water comes out from my eyes. What should I do?
I have years coming from eyes if I use computer for half an hour time. Is this any symptoms of vision loss?
Refraction is a test for eye examination, which measures prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses for individuals. The test can be performed by either an ophthalmologist or optometrist or in layman terms, an eye doctor.
Procedure for the test
In this test, the individual sits on a chair, which has a special device attached to it, called the refractor or phoropter. The individual has to look through the device and properly focus on an eye chart which is exactly 6 meters or 20 feet away. This device has lenses of various strengths that can be moved into the individual’s view. The test is conducted on one eye at a time. The doctor will be asking the individual about the chart whether it appears clearer or less clear, thereby determining the refractory error of the eye.
No special preparation is required for this test and also this test does not cause any discomfort. The purpose of the test is to determine whether the individual has a need for glasses or contacts or not. In other words, it checks if the individual has a refractory error or not.
How can the results be inferred?
If the vision without glasses is normal, it means that the refractive index is zero and the vision should be 20/20. This means that one can read a one-centimeter letter at a distance of six meters.
If an individual has a refractive error, a combination of lenses will be required for a 20/20 vision. In case of a refractive error, there would be a prescription and that would have in it a series of numbers describing the power of the lens required to correct the vision.
Abnormal results can be due to the following reasons
- Myopia or near-sightedness (capability to see near objects clearly, but having difficulty in seeing objects far away)
- Hypermetropia or far-sightedness (capability to see far away objects clearly, but not the nearby objects)
- Astigmatism (blurred vision due to abnormally curved cornea)
- Presbyopia (inability to see nearby objects clearly, which usually occurs due to age)
Other reasons that cause abnormal results can be
- Macular degeneration causing loss of sharp vision
- Corneal infections or corneal ulcers
- Retinal detachment, which means separation of the retina from its supporting layers
- Retinitis pigmentosa or damage of the retina
- Blockage of a small artery carrying blood to the retina or retinal vessel occlusion
One should have an eye examination conducted every three to five years even if they suffer from no serious eye problem. However, after the age of 40, one should schedule eye appointments every year and have a test for refraction error of glaucoma conducted.
