Please change your glasses. Take carrot daily twice in your diet. Limit your screen time staring at computers, tvs or phones in the evening before going to bed.

I am 20 year old male. Within 3 months of my joining as a software engineer mt eye sight increased by 0. 5. Doctor advised me to take arc glasses. My question is: should I move to crizal glasses for better results or is it waste of money. As I work on system for hours, please suggest me tips to maintain my eye-sight like what should be the brightness level thankyou

These glasses are too costly to be used. What if your number changes after few months; these will become useless. Better is go for lightweight glasses with additional features that will help you otherwise (like anti glare coating(for computer screens), photochromic glasses(for bright light prevention)).

You need an eye checkup to determine if you require glasses or plain glasses with anti reflection coating. A lubricating eye drop would make your eyes comfortable while working take a break every 30 minutes and look as far as possible for 20 seconds turn your head to the left and right and then get back to work. Also you should blink frequently keep the car ac/ fan away from your face.

Lighting Tips for Less Eye Strain and Better Visibility

Cornea Cataract & Lasik

Lighting Tips for Less Eye Strain and Better Visibility

We are surrounded by light from everywhere on all sides. Wherever we go, there is some source of light, be it natural or man made. However, exposure to bright light in excess can cause strain to your eyes and if this is continued your vision quality might decrease.

Here are some ways you can adjust light in order to lessen eye stress and to increase your visibility:

Make adjustments in your workplace:

According to studies, it has been shown that half of people who work in front of computer screens every day suffer from eye strain. Not only the computer, but the entire lighting around your workstation may also be causing damage.

  1. Reduce the brightness of interior lights. Many offices have bright, fancy interior lighting. Use of light bulbs and fluorescents should be lessened.
  2. In case of the presence of a window right behind or in front of your work desk, more strain is imposed upon your eyes because of the reflections on the screen. You should change the place or use dark, thick curtains or coat the glasses with anti-reflective material in order to reduce the glare.
  3. The blue light emitted from the computer causes a great amount of eye strain. You should adjust the brightness and keep it as low as possible.

Improve your home lighting:

For people who spend a lot of time at home working, adjustments should be made to the lighting in order to reduce eye strain.

  1. Avoid reading in a dim light room. This can give you headaches and produce eye strain. Any kind of activity where a lot of focus is required in dim or poorly lighted environments causes damage and strain to the eyes.
  2. Use desk lamps, reading lamps, under cabinet lights in the kitchen and other types of lights everywhere you work.
  3. If you work in a place for more than an hour, a nearby light would make it less stressful for the eyes.

For people with low vision:

  1. For people with less power of vision, proper lighting is a must. A 60-year old man would need to double the amount of light to carry out any activity which a man of 30 years would require.
  2. People having disorders such as macular degeneration, glaucoma and similar vision disorders need advanced lighting and should consult a doctor for ideas on improving their home lighting.

The presence of proper lighting improves our concentration, our ability to read, and we can differentiate between colors better. Therefore, always opt for the best lighting to avoid giving stress to your eyes.

Hello. The foreign particles only damages the sclera of the eye and wouldn't affect the eyesight as such. But as a precautionary measure, you can take Arnica 30 and Calendula 30 - both thrice daily for 1 week and put Euphrasia eye drops twice daily.

Brisk walk and treadmill can be started immediately but heavy exercises after 10-15 days. Its not that exercises are going to harm. But being surrounded by many people in gym in a closed ac room can make you susceptible for infection.

Hello, Include the following for getting better vision: Vitamins A, C, E, and minerals like copper and zinc are essential to eyesight. Get the antioxidants from dark leafy greens, egg yolks, yellow peppers, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and carrots. Include garlic, onions and capers. Blueberries, grapes, and goji berries have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help improve your vision. DHA is a fatty acid found in coldwater fish like wild salmon, sardines, mackerel, and cod. Exercises for eyes: Warm your eyes. Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Repeat this three times. Roll your eyes. Start by looking up and then slowly circle 10 times clockwise and 10 times counterclockwise. Focus. Hold a pen at arm's length, focus your eyes on it, and slowly bring the pen closer until it's about 6 inches away from your nose. Then slowly move it back, keeping your eyes focused on the pen, 10 times in all. Massage your temples. Using your thumb knuckles, massage your temples in small circles, 20 times in one direction and 20 in the other. Repeat the same actions above the mid-point of the eyebrows at the forehead, then below the eyes on both sides of the bridge of the nose. Take a mini-nap. Put your head back, close your eyes, and relax for 3 minutes. Insufficient sleep may weaken your vision, so shoot for 8 hours of sound sleep a night. Rest your eyes 10 minutes for every 50 minutes spent reading or in front of the computer. If your eyes feel overly tired, lie down and place cooling cucumber slices over your eyelids. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine which will help you in preventing rather reducing the power of your eyes. Take Physostigma 6/ thrice daily for 1 month. Thereafter, revert back for further guidance.

Hello, if symptoms are sneezing, running nose, blocked nose 1. Take proper rest/ lot of fluids 2. Take proper home made diet. 3. Steam inhalation carefully by steam inhaler twice a day for 2-3 days continuous cold may be because of many reasons like: 1. Any ENT problem like DNS, polyp, sinusitis 2. Low immunity 3. Allergic condition like Allergic Rhinitis so you need to consult ENT doctor for proper examination and further management.

Hello at age of 43, there is no way to get rid of glasses. You will need glasses for distance and near both. There are surgeries to get rid of glasses but success rate is less.

DOMS, MBBS
Ophthalmologist,
How to ensure that solution in lens bottle is good? Please help me.
Lenses should always be kept in a sterile clear optisol solution and never in water or saline etc. Solution should be used only till expiry date and never after that. Keep the cap of bottle closed always, replace solution in lens case daily with fresh solution. Clean the lenses before and after wearing with the lens solution always.
