आँख के रोग - Aankh Ke Rog!

आँखों से ही हम इस दुनिया के दृश्य रूप का अनुभव कर पाते हैं या फिर इसके अद्भुत सौंदर्य को निहार पाते हैं. इसीलिए आँखों को इवान ज्योति भी कहा जाता है. आँख के रोग होना आम तौर पर होने वाली परेशानियों में से एक है. इस समस्या के लिए कोई ख़ास उम्र नहीं होती है. ये किसी को भी कभी भी हो सकती है. ये रोग आपको जीवाणु, विषाणु, कवक या अन्य किसी प्रकार से भी हो सकता है. ये रोग आँखों के विभिन्न भागों में हो सकता है. हो सकता है कि ये एक साथ दोनों आँखों को प्रभावित कर दे. एक रोग होने के कारण ये एक व्यक्ति से दुसरे व्यक्ति को हो सकता है. इस दौरान आपको लालिमा, खुजली, सूजन, दर्द जैसी समस्याओं का सामना करना पड़ सकता है. आइए इस लेख के माध्यम से हम आँखों के विभिन्न रोगों के बारे में जानें ताकि इस विषय में लोगों को जागरूक किया जा सके.
 

आँख के रोग के प्रकार

हमारे आँखों में होने वला ये रोग मुख्य रूप से दो प्रकार का होता है. एक है कंजंक्टिवाइटिस जिसे हम आम तौर पर पिंक आई के रूप में भी जाना जाता है. इस रोग का असर बच्चों पर बहुत ज्यादा पड़ता है. दुसरे का नाम है स्टाई, इसके होने का कारण है जीवाणुओं का हमारी त्वचा से पलकों के हेयर फॉलिकल पर आ जाना. इसकी वजह से ये प्रभावित होता है.

 आँखों को के रोग के लक्षण
इसके लक्षणों में लालिमा, खुजली, सूजन, दर्द जैसी समस्याएं शामिल हैं. उपचार रोग के कारणों पर निर्भर करता है और इसमें आई ड्रॉप्स, क्रीम, या एंटीबायोटिक्स शामिल हो सकते हैं. नेत्र रोग आम तौर पर आत्म-सीमित होते हैं, और यह न्यूनतम इलाज या बिना इलाज के ठीक हो जाता है. कभी-कभी समस्या इतनी गंभीर हो जाती है कि यह अपने आप ठीक नहीं होता और दवाइयों और इलाज की आवश्यकता पड़ती है.

आँखों में होने वाले रोग का उपचार
अक्सर डॉक्टर आपके लक्षणों को देखकर और आपकी आँख की जाँच करके कंजंक्टिवाइटिस का निदान कर लेते हैं. हालांकि, कभी-कभी संक्रामक कंजंक्टिवाइटिस और अन्य प्रकार के कंजंक्टिवाइटिस के निदान में भ्रम हो सकता है. संक्रामक कंजंक्टिवाइटिस में डॉक्टर इसके लक्षणों और उपस्थिति से इसका निदान करते हैं. इसमें आंख को आमतौर पर एक स्लिट लैंप से देखा जाता है. संक्रमित रिसाव के नमूने को एकत्रित करके जाँच के लिए प्रयोगशाला भेजा जाता है ताकि रोग करने वाले जीव का पता लगाया जा सके.

लक्षण गंभीर पाए जाने पर
जब लक्षण गंभीर या बारम्बार होते हैं. जब रोग की वजह क्लैमाइडिया ट्रैस्कोमैटिस या नेइसेरिया गानोरिआ को माना जाता है. जब व्यक्ति को प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली का एक नुकसान होता है. जब व्यक्ति को कोई आंख की समस्या होती है जैसे कि कॉर्नियल ट्रांसप्लांट या ग्रेव्स रोग के कारण आंख में फुलाव. स्वैब टेस्ट इस टेस्ट में स्वैब (जो कि रुई के फोहे जैसा दिखता है) के द्वारा आपकी संक्रमित आँख से चिपचिपे पदार्थ जिसे म्यूकस कहते हैं के एक छोटे से नमूने को इकट्ठा करके परीक्षण के लिए प्रयोगशाला में भेजा जाता है ताकि कंजंक्टिवाइटिस के प्रकार की पुष्टि हो सके.

कंजंक्टिवाइटिस
इसका उपचार इसके होने की वजह पर निर्भर करता है. यदि आपको यह एक रासायनिक पदार्थ की वजह से हुआ है तो शायद कुछ ही दिनों में अपने आप ठीक हो जाएं लेकिन यदि यह एक जीवाणु, वायरस, या एलर्जी से हुआ है, तो कुछ उपचार विकल्प हैं - बैक्टीरियल कंजंक्टिवाइटिस बैक्टीरियल रोग के लिए, एंटीबायोटिक दवाओं का उपयोग किया जाता है. एंटीबायोटिक दवा से लक्षण कुछ ही दिनों में चले जाते हैं. वायरल कंजंक्टिवाइटिस वायरल रोग के लिए कोई इलाज उपलब्ध नहीं है. यह रोग सात से दस दिनों में अपने आप ठीक हो जाता है. तब तक, सिकाई करने से आपके लक्षणों में कमी आ सकती है.

एलर्जिक कंजंक्टिवाइटिस
एलर्जी के कारण हुए कंजंक्टिवाइटिस के इलाज के लिए आपके डॉक्टर शायद सूजन को रोकने के लिए आपको एंटीहिस्टामाइन देंगे. लोराटाडिन और डिफेनहाइडरामाइन एंटीहिस्टामाइन होते हैं जो केमिस्ट के पास आसानी से उपलब्ध हैं. वे एलर्जिक कंजंक्टिवाइटिस सहित एलर्जी के लक्षणों को ठीक करने में मदद करते हैं. डॉक्टर आपको एंटीहिस्टामाइन आईड्रॉप्स या एंटी-इंफ्लेमटरी आईड्रॉप्स भी दे सकते हैं.

Computer Vision Syndrome - Symptoms And Treatment!

With everything requiring a computer to execute, more and more people end up looking at the computer screen for hours on end. This could range anywhere from a couple of hours to really long hours like 16 to 18. The effect of is a group of symptoms, which are collectively known as computer vision syndrome or CVS (syndrome means a collection of symptoms). The cause of this is the strain and pain resulting from constant staring at the monitor.

It is a type of repetitive stress injury, where a particular organ, the eye here, is subjected to repeated action (staring at a monitor) resulting in a group of symptoms. This is also compounded by age, where the flexibility to adjust to near and far vision is gradually reduced.

Symptoms of CVS:

There is no damage per se, but a constant strain on the eyes leads to:

  1. Blurred vision
  2. Double vision
  3. Dryness of the eyes
  4. Redness of the eyes
  5. Irritation of the eyes
  6. Headaches and neck/back aches

This could be a progressive condition, where the symptoms get worse with time. Treatment is definitely an option once the problem sets in, but this is a condition which can be definitely prevented with some simple, effective steps.

  1. Desk arrangement: Make sure the desk or monitor is slightly below eye level, about 30 inches away from the face. If you are straining the neck or the back to look at the monitor, it requires a change. The chair also can be changed in height to suit the seating. Also, prints can be pinned to the workstation when something is being typed, so constantly looking up and down while typing is avoided.
  2. Screen type: Move away from the older tube-style monitor with an LCD screen, which is easier on the eye. Check the computer settings so that brightness, contrast, and font size and shape and contrast are altered to suit your convenience. Ensure you are not requiring to strain to read.
  3. Alter the lighting: Look around you, and ensure there is adequate lighting with no glares on the monitor from surrounding windows or bright lights. A glare filter on the monitor is an effective way to manage this.
  4. Rest your eyes: Follow the 20-20-20 rule, with a 20-second break every 20 minutes where you look at something 20 feet away.
  5. Keep them moist: Blink your eyes constantly to ensure there is enough moisture. Eye drops can be used if required additionally.
  6. Frequent breaks: Not just your eyes, this also reduces strain on the neck and the back.
  7. Regular eye checkups: An annual visit, especially after 40, is a must for optimal eye health.

What Causes Computer Vision Syndrome?

What Causes Computer Vision Syndrome?

Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) refers to a spectrum of eye-related problems caused due to continuous excessive use of computers and LED screens. Staring at a computer screen has become a daily routine for many of us. Work and pleasure both include using a computer or a tablet. Working on computers for long periods leads to pain in the eyes, strain and headache.

Why does CVS occur?

The mechanism of focus on a computer screen is far different from that of books. Books have to be focused a single time for reading. But the image on computer screen is being refreshed rapidly (40 – 60 times per second). So the eyes have to focus and defocus every time to see a new image clearly leading to strain. Apart from this main factor, other factors contributing to CVS are:

• Uncorrected spectacle power

• Inappropriate glasses

• Reduced blinking rate

• Wrong work posture

Dry eyes

• Job stress

• Age (after forties, the focusing power of eyes decrease)

What are the symptoms of CVS?

Common symptoms of CVS include eye pain, strain, headache, blurred vision (especially when changing focus from near to distance), tired eyes, redness and discomfort.

How to prevent CVS?

Following measures are advised for prevention of CVS:

Workstation ergonomics

• The top level of screen should be at eye level to prevent undue stress on neck

• Dark background behind the computer screen

• Avoid placing any light source immediately behind the computer screen

• Workstation should be placed in such a way that the user is not facing an air conditioner or cooler

• Footrest on floor

• Maintaining proper posture during work

Tips for user

• Follow the simple rule of 20:20:20, i.e., after every 20 mins of computer work, look at distant target and blink 20 times in 20 seconds

• Regular small breaks after every 45 minutes to one hour of work if working for long hours

• Regular eye examination by ophthalmologist

How to detect CVS?

Detection of CVS requires detailed eye examination by an ophthalmologist with the following tests:

• Refractive error

• Dry eye status

• Convergence power

• Evaluation of arrangement of computer workstation

How to manage CVS?

CVS is managed as per its cause.

• Prescription and use of correct refraction

• Using anti-glare/ blue cut glasses

• Dry eye management

• Orthoptic exercises for convergence insufficiency

Take home message CVS is a common eye problem among computer users and warrants proper evaluation and treatment by an eye specialist.

All About Myopia And Its Treatment In Homeopathy!

Myopia -

--> A condition in which close objects appear clearly, but far ones don't.

--> People with myopia can have difficulty clearly seeing a movie or tv screen or the whiteboard in school.

Myopia symptoms and signs:-

If you are nearsighted, you typically will have difficulty reading road signs and seeing distant objects clearly, but will be able to see well for close-up tasks such as reading and computer use.
Other signs and symptoms of myopia include squinting, eye strain and headaches. Feeling fatigued when driving or playing sports also can be a symptom of uncorrected nearsightedness.
If you experience these signs or symptoms while wearing your glasses or contact lenses, schedule a comprehensive eye examination with your optometrist or ophthalmologist to see if you need a stronger prescription.

What causes myopia?

Myopia occurs when the eyeball is too long, relative to the focusing power of the cornea and lens of the eye. This causes light rays to focus at a point in front of the retina, rather than directly on its surface.
Nearsightedness also can be caused by the cornea and/or lens being too curved for the length of the eyeball. In some cases, myopia is due to a combination of these factors.
Myopia typically begins in childhood and you may have a higher risk if your parents are nearsighted. In most cases, nearsightedness stabilizes in early adulthood but sometimes it continues to progress with age.

Myopia treatment:-

Nearsightedness can be corrected with glasses, contact lenses or refractive surgery. Depending on the degree of your myopia, you may need to wear your glasses or contact lenses all the time or only when you need very clear distance vision, like when driving, seeing a chalkboard or watching a movie.

Good choices for eyeglass lenses for nearsightedness include high-index lenses (for thinner, lighter glasses) and anti-reflective coating. Also, consider photochromic lenses to protect your eyes from UV and high-energy blue light and to reduce your need for a separate pair of prescription sunglasses outdoors.

If you're nearsighted, the first number (" sphere") on your eyeglasses prescription or contact lens prescription will be preceded by a minus sign (–). The higher the number, the more nearsighted you are.

The advantage of homeopathic treatment:-
Homeopathy is a wonderful science of treatment with medicines made from natural substances. These medicines are safe from toxic side-effects and make a dynamic impact at the root level to heal the condition and restore good health. A major advantage of the homeopathic mode of treatment in myopia is that it stops further progression of the condition. Homeopathic medicines can thus provide supportive treatment in myopia. They are equally effective in persons of all age groups.

Homeopathic medicines for myopia:-
Top grade homeopathic medicines for myopia are pysostigma, Ruta, Viola odorata, oleum animale, and phosphorus.

  • Pysostigma - Pysostigma is well indicated for nearsightedness which is progressing rapidly, accompanied by pain in the orbits. The person experiences photophobia along with blurred vision. Spasm of the ciliary muscle, irritability of the eyes and dim vision are treated best with pysostigma.
  • Ruta - Ruta is one the most suitable homeopathic medicines for myopia with a severe headache. The person experiences pain while reading, sewing and performing other near-sighted activities. The weakness of the ciliary muscles and blurred vision are the signs to look out for prescription of Ruta. Ruta acts very well for eyestrain occurring from overuse of eyes.
  • Viola Odorata - Another of the useful homeopathic medicines for myopia is viola odorata. Myopia, where it is accompanied by severe pain in the eyes, is treated most effectively with homeopathic medicine viola odorata. In such cases, the person complains of severe pain in the eyes which radiates to the top of the head (vertex). The heaviness of the eyelids, flames before the eyes and nearsightedness are other symptoms that merit use of Viola odorata
  • Oleum Animale - Oleum animale is one of the most wonderful homeopathic medicines for myopia where the symptoms include blurred vision with smarting in the eyes. The person often sees glistening bodies before his eyes and complains of dim vision. Nearsightedness accompanied by twitching of the eyelids is also treated well with homeopathic medicine oleum animale.
  • Phosphorus - Phosphorus is one of the most highly recommended homeopathic medicines for myopia. Fatigue of the eyes and head even when the eyes are not being overused is a key symptom for prescription of phosphorus. It is one of the best indicated homeopathic medicines for myopia with weak eyesight and an aversion to light. A feeling of having sand in the eyes which gets better by rubbing may also be present. Frequent itching in the eyes with profuse lachrymation is also present. Nearsightedness with atrophy of optic nerve is treated well with homeopathic medicine phosphorus as well.
