My eyes were treatment by femto lasik 3 years ago. Now I have conjunctivitis in one eyes. Which medicine should be used?
Infective conjunctivitis is an infection of the thin skin (the conjunctiva) on the front of the eye. It is very common and often starts in one eye but then spreads to the other. Conjunctivitis is a very common condition in which one or both eyes become red or pink and may be sticky or watery. Almost everyone will have experienced it several times and will be familiar with the symptoms of sensation of grittiness and discomfort in the eyes, with redness and discharge. Most episodes of infective conjunctivitis settle down in less than a week with simple self-management. That means that in many cases, you don't need medical help at all. Antibiotics are only occasionally needed.

Lasik Surgery - Know Utility Of It!

Lasik Surgery - Know Utility Of It!

LASIK is a corrective eye surgery that aims at repairing vision impairment. It is known as laser in situ keratomileusis. This surgery is typically used to fix nearsightedness, farsightedness and even astigmatism. So can this surgery help in removing your spectacles and giving you crystal clear vision? Let us find out!

Definition: The LASIK procedure basically works towards reshaping the cornea, which is the clear portion that coats the eye. This is responsible for proper travel of light to the retina where it must focus in an appropriate manner so as to reach the back of the eye.

Corrective Technique: With its cornea reshaping technique, this procedure is effective in correcting vision and removing spectacles for at least 96% of the patients who go through this treatment.

Convenient: LASIK surgery is a highly convenient one that hardly creates any pain. Numbing drops are used to minimise the pain that may be felt during the procedure. Also, the time taken for the correction is very little with most procedures commencing within a day or two. Further, this procedure does not require any bandages or stitches and usually works with a powerful laser beam.

Eyeglass Dependence Reduction: Most patients have a dramatic improvement in the quality of their vision and do not require glasses, while other patients usually have a reduced dependence on eyeglasses once the surgery is done.

Preparing for the Surgery: To prepare for the surgery, it is imperative to meet and coordinate the details with the eye specialist of the ophthalmologist who will examine your eye care and seek to determine the risk of any kind of side effect. Also, the doctor will ask specific questions regarding the medical history of the patient before conducting the surgery. As a part of the preparation, the doctor will also take measurements of the corneal thickness and other such factors like refraction, corneal mapping, pupil dilation and air pressure, so as to carry out the surgery in the most effective manner. Do not wear your contact lenses for at least three weeks before this evaluation so as to get the correct reading which will make the surgery much more effective due to the correct settings applied to the pulses.

Procedure: During the procedure, an instrument known as a microkeratome laser will be used to lift the flap of the cornea which will be peeled back while the corneal tissue is reshaped. Then the corneal flap will be put back in its position.

Remember to be prepared for some amount of dryness in the eyes once the surgery is over. Talk to your doctor about other side effects.

Yes you can get it. But it may not be permanent. And the numbers come back in absence of care and post operative treatment. You can consult me at Lybrate for homoeopathic treatment.

It can be reduced by homoeopathic treatment and other methods. Try to do it first. Then take lasik. It may need 1-2 years.

It can cost anything between 30000/- to 120000/- or more. Depending on technique n clinic you choose. Pain is not these but yes you need to use various eye drops for almost 2 months. Limitations (if any) your attending physician will tell you after having a thorough checkup of your eyes.

You have post-surgical inflammation of the cornea and it will take a few weeks or months to settle down and you will be able to see well.

Hello, I am 22 years old. I’ve been using spectacles from the age 10 and I am planning to do laser eye surgery to remove specs, so I am confusing about which one is better to do which one is safer, lasik or prk, please suggest me which one is best to do.

Details of your power and the cornea status need to be considered. Most commonly though, patients have prk instead of lasik because the prk procedure requires less corneal tissue thickness than lasik does, which is of significant consideration for patients with naturally thinner corneas or higher amounts of nearsightedness or both.
