Hi, I would advise you to take regular breaks, relax yourself for sometime and then get back to your studies. Remember that de-stressing yourself at periodically is essential to your staying engaged with your studies, and enjoying learning throughout. Also, if you stay relaxed and focused, probably you may not require to study that hard as you you do now and still be able to learn/ score the maximum with minimum effort. Make sure, you take care of your posture and the needful ergonomics to make learning/ studying a joyful experience. You may get your eyes checked by an eye specialist for sometimes problems with vision lead to headaches. Taking due care of diet and lifestyle is equally important in line with the above-mentioned. Hope this shall help. Take care and all the best.

I am a myopic since the age of 12. My number is -6 and 0.25 cylindrical power. I want to get rid of these glasses.

I am a myopic since the age of 12. My number is -6 and 0.25 cylindrical power. I want to get rid of these glasses.
Operations done to remove the refractive error (power) of the eyes are known as refractive surgery. There are certain basic criteria that most patients need to fulfill before they can safely undergo refractive surgery. To enumerate, they are: (1) stability of refraction: the power of the eyes should have become stable for a period of 1.5 years minimum without any change. (2) curvature of the cornea should be tested by a technique which is known as topography. (3) thickness of the cornea should be measured by a test known as pachymetry. The minimum thickness required is 550 microns. (4) dilated retina evaluation: this is one of the most important tests that should be performed by a trained retina specialist. This test helps in detection of any offensive lesion on the central or peripheral retina. In case of any retinal abnormality, these should be treated before undergoing the surgery for number reduction. (5) there should be no pre-existent corneal abnormality. (example: corneal scar, opacity, defect, etc.) another important suggestion is that whenever you go for the assessment (the above mentioned tests), you should discontinue the use of contact lenses at least 4 weeks prior to the assessment. The reason for this being that use of contact lens temporarily alters the contour of the cornea. It takes around 3-4 weeks for the restoration of the original corneal contour after removal of the contact lens. Another important point is that you, as a patient, should be compliant to put post operative medication in your eyes for at least 2 months. There is bound to be some discomfort, watering, foreign body sensation, pain after the surgery in most cases-you should be ready to tolerate that. A leave from work for 7-10 days after the surgery should be generally sufficient. Take care, regards.

Use genteel eye drop more frequently. Do not sleep with contact lenses on and you can use that for 12 - 14 hours a day.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Concentration is the result of interest, love and dedication. In your present stage, the priorities are shifting. Sometimes thd priority is career, sometime it is girlfriend, friendship, role confusion etc. In this scenario, concentration is difficult. Dedicate yourself and you can see the difference. Take care.

I am suffering from red eyes from three days kindly give me some good solution regarding this.

I am suffering from red eyes from three days kindly give me some good solution regarding this.
Basically red eye can be due to conjunctivitis, uveitis or glaucoma. The ophthalmologist will be able to differentiate to come to a proper conclusion so you must see the ophthalmologist but in the mean time if there is discharge one should put antibiotic drop frequently. If the red eye is due to conjunctivitis certainly it will do no harm. I suggest to put' vigamox' eye drop hourly alongwith hot fumentation and consultant ophthalmologist.

If scarring has occurred nothing can be done. Some causes of scarring are recurrent. And sometimes asymptomatic. Hence will recommend regular comprehensive dilated eye checkup. At 6 to 24 months interval depending on the cause of scarring and your eye status.

Hi. Photophobia is a symptom of abnormal intolerance to visual perception of light. As a medical symptom, photophobia is not a morbid fear or phobia, but an experience of discomfort or pain to the eyes due to light exposure or by presence of actual physical sensitivity of the eyes.

Yes,your son will have to wear glasses as right now there is no other option.Dont worry,initially it will be problematic for your son but as time passes,he will get used to it.Myself is a homoeopath and although I prescribe homoeopathic medicines,and exercises with which eyesight improves but right now your son is too small for medicines but yes I can do one thing right now,I can prescribe you a Homoeopathic Medicine used as a tonic to strengthen eye muscles,just 10 drops to be given once a day along with an eye rotation exercise for next 1-2 years.We will have a review after every 4 months for any change in eyesight anf after he is 5 years old there we will decide the future course or may be by then his eyes are normal with this tonic and exercise.But for this make your son wear glasses and then consult me for medicine and exercise.

You have something called as computer vision syndrome. So take frequent breaks while you are working every 20-25 mins take break to look away from screen blink more frequently' level of screen should be below the level of eyes ac should not blow directly on your face. Also get your eyes checked for any spectacle power.

You will need to either wear spectacles/contact lenses or undergo laser surgery. As of now there is no medical cute for refractive errors.

How to reduce eye power and get less strain on eyes. Some exercise that helps to reduce eye power.
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.

I am suffering from keratoconus. I just got c3r done in my right eye (3 weeks ago), but my vision is still not good. I read the cornea would take 3-6 months to reshape. I also wanted to know can I change my spectacles and is it sure my number will not further increase of my right eye. When will my left eye be operated?

Hello I think you should not change your glasses as soon as your keratometry becomes stable, your doctor may advise you contact lens (RGP lenses) Your left eye can be operated now. Having said, I need to see pentacam reports of left eye to guide you better.
