I am 20 year s old I have eyesight and hair loss problem so please give me suggestions to reduce it.
There are no scientifically proven methods to decrease eyesight loss due to refractive error other than using corrective aids like glasses or contacts or undergoing refractive procedures like lasik. However good nutritious diet and physical exercise will help in eye wellness.

Hello lybrate-user. Myasthenia Gravis is a neuromusular disorder. If she has problem in eyes thn she has to use eye patch during watching, reading, writing. Avoid foods that requir more chewing. Take proper rest. Avoid stress. To cure all complains she can use homeopathic medicines because they have no side effects and give effective results.

When Sheena (42), a banking professional, got to know that her mother (72) has been diagnosed with a cataract formation in both her eyes, she didn't know how to react. The thought of 'second opinion' was constantly running through her mind, making it difficult for her to concentrate at work, just then an acquaintance informed Sheena about all the misconceptions she had about Cataract Surgery and the treatments available. Probably, for Sheena, Cataract Surgery still meant the way it used to be during her grandparents' time - waiting for surgery until the cataract ripens, the process of undergoing pain, wearing black tinted glasses for over a month, no TV, and endless list of precautions to be followed post operative. Infact, there are numerous people like Sheena who still are ignorant about the Blade-Free Laser Cataract Surgery.

Apart from being blade-less, through this Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery, it takes less than 1 minute to finish the surgical process! What's more? Well, this latest technique also offers a totally prick-less, painless, bloodless, stitch-less and a bandage free solution to the patient. And, the results are immediate and effective.

Let's debunk the misinformation about Cataract Surgery and help you get to the truth.

Myth#1 Cataracts 'grow' on top of the eye.

FACT:False! Cataracts are a clouding of the eye's lens, and the lens is within the eye, not on its surface. Therefore, during the surgery, the clouded lens of an eye is removed and replaced with an artificial/synthetic lens with a process called Intraocular Lens (IOL) implantation.

Myth#2 Cataract Surgery is scary and painful.

FACT: Not true. Infact, it is one of the safest surgeries possible. Though it can be slightly uncomfortable but shouldn't be painful. Usually four out of five people say that the surgery was easier than they had expected.

Myth#3 I'll need reading glasses after Cataract Surgery.

Fact: Not necessary! New generation Multifocal and 'monovision' replacement lenses correct vision at various points, near and far, and can sometimes reduce the need for glasses too.

Myth#4 A cataract must be 'ripe' before it can be removed.

FACT: In the past this was true, however, with modern cataract surgery, a cataract does not have to 'ripen' to be removed. You can go ahead with a cataract removal surgery as soon as it begins to affect your vision and quality of life.

Myth#5 Only older people develop cataracts.

FACT: Cataracts are common among people over 65 years of age; however, cataracts can occur in people who are younger resulting from conditions such as diabetes, certain medications and other eye problems. In some cases cataracts can be present at time of birth; called congenital cataracts.

Myth#6 Cataracts can spread from one eye to the other.

FACT: False! Cataracts can develop in one eye or both of them, but they do not spread.

I am having far eye farsightedness with both the eyes having -3.5 from almost more than two years. Can you suggest me a way to get rid of get rid of specs I am wearing? Should I go for lasik or contacts? From either of them which is long lasting and safe for the person? Do I need to consult a ophthalmologist in person to consult this? Please suggest.

Hello dear. To get rid of glasses you have 2 options. Contact lens and other is lasik surgery. Both are equally safe if done properly. Contact lens is temporary but lasik is permanent way to get rid of glasses. Both are long lasting and both are safe. My opinion is if you want permanent removal of glasses then choose lasik as it is hassle free and permanent.

Hello lybrate-user. Rolling movements of the eyes occur due to various reasons and are of various types. Let me enumerate in brief: (1) they may be nystagmus movements, (2) nystagmoid movements, (3) bobbing, (4) roving, these rolling movement may or may not occur in association with certain genetic conditions (syndromes). Thus the approach, assessment and treatment for such cases should be made by an eye specialist and a pediatric specialist in concordance. I would suggest erg (electroretinogram) and vep (visually evoked potentials) studies to be done for your daughter. This would give an early and fair idea regarding the health of the eye.

I use specs for last ten years. Glass is a combination of cylindrical and spherical. Is it safe to do laser treatment?

There are a few points to be considered before advising laser 1. How much power you have? 2. Is the power stable for atleast a year now? 3. Do you have any other systemic problems? before undergoing lasik a test called corneal topography is done. If the results of that are fine then you can safely undergo laser without any problems.

yes its pretty safe now with the new technology. Lasik is a simple laser procedure which changes the shape of the cornea so that the light rays fall on the retina properly. It is a painless procedure. It is a day care procedure does not require any injections, does not require admission, you can simply resume your duties in 2 days. Cost varies from centre to centre. Side effects are usually limited to dryness of eyes for few months. We can do lasik anytime after age of 18 years. You need to undergo proper prelasik checkup to decide whether lasik is safe for you or not

I suffering from night blindness I am 45 year old would you help me with that pleas3.
Night blindness is due to a disorder of the cells in the retina that are responsible for vision in dim light. It has many causes, including:--------- •Short-sightedness----------- •Glaucoma medications that work by constricting the pupil----------- •Cataracts-------------- •Retinitis pigmentosa----------------- •Vitamin A deficiency-------------------- Treatment for night blindness will depend upon its cause. Treatment may be as simple as a new prescription for your glasses or switching glaucoma medications, or it may require surgery in cases of cataracts---------------------- Dietary Management For Night Blindness--------------------Vitamins A, C and E are potent antioxidants which slow down age related macular degeneration and help maintain healthy tissues and cells in the eyes. Vitamins C and E may also inhibit the development or progression of cataracts. Lutein and zeaxanthin are two antioxidants called carotenoids, which help in neutralizing free radicals and maintaining eye health.------------------------ Sources of Vitamin A: Yellow-orange fruits and vegetables such as carrots, mango, papaya, pumpkin, dark green leafy vegetables, broccoli, eggs, milk and milk products. Vitamin A can be stored in your body, so you can opt for your favorite seasonal foods!--------------------- Sources of Vitamin C: Citrus fruits such as oranges, tangerines and grapefruit, peppers, tomatoes, kiwis, gooseberries, strawberries and Brussels sprouts.--------------------- Sources of Vitamin E: Nuts like almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, fortified oils, seeds, eggs, milk and dairy.--------------- Sources of Lutein: Green leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale, broccoli and chard, yellow peppers, mango and bilberries.------------------------ Sources of Zeaxanthin: Oranges, tangerines, eggs, spinach, dark green lettuce, corn, broccoli and orange sweet peppers.-------------------------- For maximizing the benefits of the above vegetables, it is best to have then lightly cooked rather than raw. Cooking or steaming breaks down the cells, making it simpler for the body to absorb these nutrients from the foods.------------------------ Aim to eat at least 2 to 4 servings or more of these foods every day to ensure that you are getting enough of these 5 powerful nutrients.---------------------------------

It seems you have developed a condition called computer viion ssyndrome due to working on computer for a long time. Relax your eyes in between work. Blink regularily if working for long time on computer. Lower the brightness of your screen. Work under adequately illuminated conditions. Also try to blink your eyes properly while work. Use good tear substitutes like genteal 4 times a day. And anti glare screen for your system. Use eyedrops genteal 3 times a nd zoneph 4 times a day. Get your refraction done and wear spectacles eat green veggies. Carrots. Papayas, mangoes yellow fruits nuts butter. Strain less your eyes.
