Sir, my 15 year old sister has - 6 power in both eyes. Every time her power increases when she visit for checkup. I m afraid if this time also her power increases. Please suggest me how to handle the problem?

MBBS, DOMS
Ophthalmologist, Hyderabad
Power increase can usually happen upto the body growth age, usually until around age 18 in girls. Do continue with your regular checkups with your ophthalmologist and follow if any change in glasses or contact lenses is advised. Also make sure the retina is checked up, after dilating the pupils, at regular intervals. This is to make sure that the retina is not going into some thinning or other changes that could occur in people with high myopia.

LASIK is refractive surgery to correct myopia ,hypermetropia & astigmatism, refractive surgery also include intraocular ocular lens procedure. For LASIK your eyes must be healthy, if you have persistent dry eyes, LASIK surgery may aggravate this condition resulting in burning sensation & blurring of vision after LASIK.   For LASIK cornea must  have sufficient thickness because in reshaping of cornea, you loose the thickness of cornea & if your cornea is too thin ,you are not  fit case for LASI K.  -1Dof myopic correction consumes  35 micron of corneal thicknes. Average thickness of cornea in Indian is 450 micron to 500 micron& after LASIK there  should be around 300 micron thickness of cornea for safety of eye in future. Pupils are usually large in myopic people who undergo LASIK  operation resulting in side effects such as halos, glares especially in those who drive in night. LASIK for the treatment of high retractive errors are less predictable, because very high amount of myopia could require removal of too much corneal tissue putting at increased risk of Vision complications. LASIK should not be undertaken before 21 years in male & 19 years in female because myopic power increases by that age. You must have stable power before LASIK. There is no upper age limit but one should keep in mind that once you are 40 years old, you may still need reading  glass due to presbyopia changing every two years till you develop cataract in old age. Contraindications for LASIK -degenerative disease, Sjogren syndrome, type one diabetes etc. People who are taking immunosuppressive drugs, must think ten times before undergoing for LASIK surgery. One must go LASIK screening before taking decision for LASIK. One undergoes for LASIK should be fully aware of  potential LASIK complications & should not hide anything from operating surgeon about health.

Diabetes - How it Impacts Your Eyes?

Diabetes - How it Impacts Your Eyes?

If you are diabetic then it is important that you consult a ophthalmologist for regular check-ups. Diabetes is known to be one of main causes for blindness across all age groups. If you suffer from bouts of blurred vision then it is not likely due to a long term vision problem. It is temporary and usually occurs due to fluctuating blood sugar levels in the body.

How diabetes affects your eyes?
The lens of your eyes can swell if you are a diabetic, and this can impair your ability to see causing blurry vision. In order to rectify this problem, it is important for you to get your blood sugar levels under optimal levels. This entire procedure of reducing blood sugar levels may take three months or more.

Eye problems that are caused by diabetes
The major eye problems that can occur due to diabetes are

  1. Cataract: Cataract occurs when the lens of your eyes become foggy or cloudy. Although cataract mostly occurs to people who are middle aged or above sixty, you can get affected by this disorder at an earlier age if you are diabetic. Also, the deterioration or clouding of the lens progresses at a much faster rate than usual. Cataracts lead to an inability to focus as the retina is covered by cloudy layer.
  2. Glaucoma: This is another disorder that can occur due to diabetes. This is characterized by the buildup of pressure in the eye due to the fluids within it not draining properly. This intense pressure damages the nerves and blood vessels in the eyes, thus impairing your ability to see.
  3. Diabetic Retinopathy: Diabetic retinopathy is a disorder characterized by damage to the vessels in the retina that carry blood. It can occur if you have either of the type 2 or type 1 diabetes. If not treated in time it can lead to blindness.

If you have a history of diabetes or even borderline diabetic tendencies, it is highly advisable to constantly check your blood sugar levels and also get your eye checked at regular intervals, especially if you feel even the minutest vision problems.

If we have zika virus does our eyes become red. What should I do if we are having zika. Is this caused by mosquitoes.

MBBS, DOMS
Ophthalmologist, Hyderabad
If we have zika virus does our eyes become red. What should I do if we are having zika. Is this caused by mosquitoes.
Yeah, this viral infection can cause redness of eyes. Yes, zika virus is transmitted by mosquito bite. These mosquitoes can also carry dengue virus & or chikungunya virus. If anyone is having fever with severe body pains, they should not delay consulting a physician, as only with blood tests can it be found what is the actual virus that is causing the trouble. Only then specific treatment can be instituted. Care of the eyes during these fevers is quite simple, more important is to overcome the general debility caused by these deadly virus infections. Better still, everyone should take adequate measures to prevent mosquito bites.
