Treatment of Farsightedness

Homeopathic Treatment of Farsightedness

Homeopathic remedies are useful in the treatment of various eye problems including farsightedness and shortsightedness. Some of the homeopathic remedies for farsightedness are:

  • Calcarea
  • Ruta
  • Apis
  • Pulsatilla
  • Silica

Acupuncture & Acupressure Treatment of Farsightedness

Acupuncture helps to increase the blood flow to the brain and eye. It helps in stimulating the retinal nerve growth factors and leading to metabolic changes in the central nervous system. It focuses on the activation of eye muscles to facilitate eye focusing.

Conventional / Allopathic Treatment of Farsightedness

The conventional or allopathic treatment for farsightedness is the use of glasses and contact lenses.

Surgical Treatment of Farsightedness

There are different types of surgeries that are used in the treatment of farsightedness:

  • Photoreactive keratectomy (PRK) – The process uses a laser to flatten the back of the eye to help the images focus more closely to the retina.
  • Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) – it involves cutting a flap in the cornea and then removing some of the corneal tissue with a laser, and then the flap is replaced.
  • Laser-assisted subepithelial keratectomy (LASEK) – Instead of creating a flap in the cornea, the surgeon creates a flap involving only the cornea’s thin protective cover (epithelium).

Dietary & Herbal Treatment of Farsightedness

  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables
  • Eat dark green leafy foods
  • Eat foods rich in vitamin A
  • Avoid the intake of refined sugars and processed foods

What is Farsightedness

Farsightedness or hyperopia is a condition where you see far or distant objects clearly, but not objects up close which get blurred. It is caused when light rays overshoot the retina and focus behind it.

Symptoms of Farsightedness

  • Nearby objects may appear blurry
  • You need to squint to see clearly
  • Constant blurred vision
  • Eye strain, burning eyes and aching
  • General feeling of irritability and nervousness
  • Eye discomfort or a headache doing close tasks, such as reading, writing, computer work or drawing
  • Causes of Farsightedness
  • Eyeball being too small
  • The focusing power being too weak

Risk factors of Farsightedness

  • Hereditary factors

Complications of Farsightedness

  • Glaucoma
  • Lazy eye
  • Crossed eyes

 Diagnosis of Farsightedness

Farsightedness is diagnosed by a basic eye exam. A complete eye examination involves the following tests.

  • Eye movement testing
  • Glaucoma testing
  • Refraction test
  • Retinal examination
  • Slit-lamp examination
  • Visual acuity

Precautions & Prevention of Farsightedness

  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables
  • Do not smoke
  • Use good lighting
  • Use the right glasses
  • Wear sunglasses that block UV radiation
  • Have your eyes checked regularly

Most common cause of headache in India is refractive error (chashme ka number). Please get it checked before ruling out other causes of headache.

Cloudy Vision - Can It Be Because Of Cataract?

Cloudy Vision - Can It Be Because Of Cataract?

Cataract is clouding of clear natural lens present inside the eye, this is a major cause of decreased vision in elderly. Cataracts can occur in one or both eyes, usually developing very slowly. Things look blurry, hazy, less colourful and less sharp with cataract.

Most cataracts are related to ageing, however many other factors can either increase the rate of formation or cause cataract formation. 

Causes of Cataract Formation-

  1. Ageing: Most common cause. As the proteins present in the lens of the eye degenerates over the years ( just like any other organ) cataract is formed. If you are having Diabetes or hypertension, the rate of formation gets accelerated.

  2. Radiation: Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays, especially UV-B rays, results in cataract in your eyes. Wearing sunglasses in the daytime helps in slowing down the process of cataract.

  3. Genes: Many genetic disorders can result in congenital cataract ( cataracts present since birth) or early formation. Like in Lowe syndrome or Down's syndrome

  4. Lifestyle Choices: Cigarette smoking, long hours of sun exposure regularly, antioxidant, poor diet etc. are responsible for the onset of cataract.

How To Detect Cataract?

Certain signs and symptoms suggest the existence of cataract in the eye. Depending on the type and level of cataract, problems in vision occurs. The main symptom is foggy cloudy vision as if seeing through a dirty glass window. 

Other Symptoms are- 

  1. inability to see clearly in bright light (during the day) which becomes better in dim light ( evening and night) and vice versa. 
  2. watery, tired eyes - mild pain in and around eyes. 
  3. yellow tinge in vision
  4. Halos around light bulbs or bright light. 

If you are experiencing above symptoms and having problems in viewing things clearly, visit an ophthalmologist and get your eyes checked.  In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

How High Blood Pressure Can Affect Your Eye Sight?

How High Blood Pressure Can Affect Your Eye Sight?

High blood pressure can lead to hypertension, which is known to cause a variety of debilitating side effects or symptoms in the life of the patient. It can also lead to a number of related ailments which can affect the various organs of the body. The eyes are one of the organs that are most susceptible to this kind of spike in the body’s blood pressure. Let us learn more about the connection between the two.

Retina: When high blood pressure goes untreated for a prolonged period, it can easily start to affect the blood vessels that can be found in the retina. The retina is the third or the inner most layer of the eye which is sensitive towards light and usually helps in refraction. This is where the light reaches so that one can focus clearly on an image. When the blood pressure of the patient stays high for a prolonged basis, there is significant pressure on the blood vessels in this part of the eye which can lead to an eye disease known as hypertensive retinopathy.

Symptoms: Symptoms of this eye disease include lack of clarity and focus when the eye comes to rest on an object, as well as headaches and other vision problems that typically spring from eye strain that one will go through while trying to focus even harder. It may be seen that the symptoms do not appear in the very early stages of this disease.

Diagnosis: The diagnosis of the condition is usually done by an ophthalmologist who will use an ophthalmoscope in order to project light towards the specific part of the eye so that the back of the eyeballs can be examined. The signs that the doctor will look for during the examination include narrowing of the blood vessels in this part of the eye, inflammation of the macula which is the central portion of the retina, and bleeding in the back of the eye. Also, the doctor will check for spots in the retina with the help of cotton swabs and exudates.

Treatment: The best and only way of treating this condition is by keeping one’s blood pressure in control with the help of medication prescribed by the doctor.

Prevention: There are many ways of preventing the onset of this disease, including losing weight so that there is less pressure on the body. Also, one must stick to a healthy diet and exercise regularly after taking recommendations on the appropriate exercises from the doctor. Additionally, it is also important to see a doctor on a regular basis so that there is constant monitoring and regulation of the medicines and the blood pressure.
