If you have eye sight, you must use any one type of correction, either spectacles, or contact lenses. Otherwise, if found suitable you can go for permanent correction by laser / lasik or lens implantation inside the eye. These methods are the only ones with scientific evidence to take care perfectly. General care includes eating a well balanced diet, sleeping adequately, giving good rest to the eyes if you are a power user of computer or other hand held gadgets. Otherwise, you may have to face increasing powers, eye strain, and so on.

There are no unequivocal studies to support any claim. May be stem cell treatment will offer some hope. Trials are on and you can join one. It is expensive as each cycle may cost over a lac of rupees depending upon the centre.

I have sight issue with my eyes. Getting headache pain. Current sight is left eye -2.75 and -2.5.
First of all pls visit an eye doctor to check if your number has changed - that could be the first reason for the headache. Secondly, are you using glasses constantly? if not, that's the other reason for headache. Lastly, if you have long hours in front of the pc this maybe another cause of headache. For this you can start lubricating eye drops. Pls visit an eye surgeon for ruling out all of the above.

Don't use refresh tears, examine your eyes if you're having allergy then your eyes will be effected. Both eyelids will have papillae. So use cromal forte eye drop in both eyes or consult eye doctor physically. One drop each eye 3 times for 7 days.

Yes, surely you can for for lasix. Myself is a homoeopath and if you feels like you can improve your eyesight with diet, exercise and some very effective homoeopathic medicines. But for your present eyesight it will take apprx. 1.5 years of medicine and exercise to get your eyes normal. So it is up to you whether to go for lasix or homoeopathic treatment-----------------

It could be due to mild dryness due to high flow air striking your eyes. You can try some lubricating drops in that case after getting it examined to rule out any other causal factor.

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. Use antiallergic eyedrop along with lubricating eyedrop. 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.
