There is no medication or food for improving eyesight or to get rid of glasses. If not interested in glasses then you can try a. Contact lens b. Lasik laser as your age is now 18 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. If you are not comfortable with contact lens then go for lasik. Lasik is a very easy and painless procedure. If you want to get rid of glasses then go for lasik.

Macular Degeneration- Is Sun Exposure The Leading Cause For It?

Macular Degeneration- Is Sun Exposure The Leading Cause For It?

We spend so much time out in the sun every single day, going about our usual routine, heading for work, mostly preoccupied with our own thoughts that it hardly comes to our mind how our health is getting affected. Of course, most people take necessary precautions to avoid tanning, skin problems and other common conditions. But how often do we think of the damage caused to our eyes?

Research studies show that people who spend a considerable amount of time outdoors and are exposed to sun light almost all the time, are likely to develop severe eye problems such as macular degeneration.
Macular degeneration affects the retina, the layer present at the back of your eyeball. This layer consists of light-sensitive cells that help you see the world around. The tissues of your eyes become affected and dry out due to over exposure to sun’s UV rays. Macular degeneration can cause you to lose your central vision, which means your vision gets obstructed when you look straight ahead.

Types of Macular Degeneration-
Macular degeneration can be of two types-

  1. Dry macular degeneration- This is the most common form of macular degeneration. This condition occurs when yellow-coloured small deposits (known as drusen) start to develop beneath the macula. This leads to retinal damage and loss of vision. Nearly 85-90% of people are affected by dry macular degeneration.
  2. Wet macular degeneration- This eye condition is not that common, and only affects about 10-15% of people. Wet macular degeneration develops when abnormal blood vessels are formed beneath the macula and retina. You may observe a dark spot right at the center of the vision due to bleeding or leakage of the blood vessels.

Symptoms of Macular Degeneration-
Macular degeneration is a progressive disorder, meaning the condition will worsen over time. Recognizing the symptoms of this condition at an early stage is crucial. So watch out for the following signs-

  • Blurred vision
  • Difficulty adjusting to low light
  • Inability to recognize faces
  • Reduction in central vision
  • A curvature of straight lines in the field of your vision
  • Need for brighter lights

Macular degeneration prevents you from looking at things that are placed directly in front of you. It does not, however, cause complete blindness.

How is the condition treated?
Macular degeneration cannot be cured completely. But there are a number of ways to manage the severity of this condition.
High dose of zinc and antioxidant vitamins are prescribed to slow down the progression of Dry Macular Degeneration-

  • 500mg of Vitamin-C
  • 400 IU of Vitamin-E
  • 2mg of copper as cupric oxide
  • 80mg of zinc as zinc oxide

Laser surgery is performed to destroy the permeable blood vessels at the back of the retina.

Eye injections are given to block the growth factors responsible for development of abnormal blood vessels.

Photodynamic therapy involves injecting a light-activated drug into your bloodstream. After injecting the drug, your eyes are exposed to light for about 90 seconds. This allows the therapy to improve your vision. You may have to undergo multiple sessions of this procedure.

Photocoagulation therapy is primarily directed towards treating Wet Macular Degeneration. High-energy laser beams are used in this procedure to destroy the abnormal blood vessels. The objective of the treatment is to prevent bleeding, thereby reducing further damage to the macula. Nevertheless, the laser can leave you scarred or leave behind a spot on the eyes.

Apart from the aforementioned treatment methods, one must adopt certain lifestyle changes to protect their eyes. These include- wearing sun glasses and magnifying lenses, adjusting the font size and brightness level on your computer, including lots of green veggies etc. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

hello a. most important factor is the pocket of patinet...usually alcon or AMO lenses are very good but these may be expensive...if you can afford then go for these lenses else go with simple hydrophilic lenses

Hello, Bloodshot eyes appear red because the vessels at the surface of the white portion of the eye become swollen. Vessels may swell due to: Eye dryness Too much sun exposure Dust or other particles in the eye Allergies Infection Injury Eye infections or inflammation can cause redness as well as possible itching, discharge, pain, or vision problems. Other causes of eye redness include Colds or allergies, Acute glaucoma, Corneal scratches: Injuries caused by sand, dust, or overuse of contact lenses. Sometimes, a bright red spot, called a subconjunctival hemorrhage, will appear on the white of the eye. This often happens after straining or coughing, which causes a broken blood vessel on the surface of the eye. Most often, there is no pain and your vision is normal. It is almost never a serious problem. Because the blood leaks into the conjunctiva, which is clear, you cannot wipe or rinse the blood away. Like a bruise, the red spot will go away within a week or two. Management: - Try to rest your eyes if redness is due to fatigue or eye strain. No other treatment is needed. - Wash your hands, hold clean water in your hand, keep your eyes closer to the water and dip the eyes by blinking the eyelids frequently in the held water in hand. Repeat it for 3-4 times again. - Avoid watching T. V. Working on computer or mobile, reading or frequently keep blinking your eyes to avoid dryness. Take frequent breaks in between. - In case there is itching, use a clean napkin or a tissue to wipe the tears and cleaning the eyelids gently. -Wear an UV-rays protected sunglasses while you are out in sun. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Schwabe’s Belladonna 30 and Euphrasia 30 - both thrice daily for 4 days. Use Euphrasia Eye drops twice daily. Revert back thereafter.

Dear friend lybrate-user, I am extremely sorry to tell you either you have not understood what your doctor has explained you or may be you have not consulted a squint specialist ,also called as pediatric ophthalmologist who are trained and are experts in adult and children squint management, as can see in my qualifications listed in latika eye and maternity clinic. Squint is measured either in degrees or in prism diopters. But apart from this what is more important in your case is to know ,since when you have noticed or your friends have told you that you have squint. If it is sudden in onset than it is very important to find out why this squint has developed all of a sudden and will required full investigation in addition to your basic eye check up about vision and fundus exam. If this squint has developed gradually then it is imp to know is it the same or has been gradually increasing, and do you any problem in vision or glass prescription. DO YOU NOTICE SQUINT CONSTANTLY OR ONLY SOMETIMES. Also important to find out are you suffering from any disease or neurological problem at present or in past. Only after answering all these questions along with your eye exam ,can one understand the "cause of your squint" and the treatment will be directed accordingly. We do not have any eye drops or tablets for the cure of squint. Only after understanding the cause of squint -treatment can be initiated aiming towards the disease which in turn will help your squint. In Short treatment of the cause is done. We have very specific and straight forward modalities for the treatment of squint namely, 1. Treatment of the cause of squint for example disease like thyroid, myasthenia, hypretension etc 2. Exercises- again depending on the cause of squint 3. Surgery - again depending on the cause we have no other eye drops or other medication other than the tablets for the causative disease. So I will suggest you to consult "pediatric ophthalmologist & Neuro-ophthalmologist" available at Latika eye and maternity specialty clinic, Mumbai ,who are squint specialists ,consult them and take proper steps as they advise. Hope this helps, all the best..
