Should You Wash Your Eyes Daily?

M.S. Ophthalmology
Ophthalmologist, Vadodara
Should You Wash Your Eyes Daily?

Often many patients who visit wash their eyes daily with water based on the practice followed by their ancestors or other family members and friends.

Is this necessary? Let’s understand.

The idea behind washing eyes with water appears to be to clean the eyes and remove dust/dirt, feel fresh and cool in hot weather etc.

The fact is, eyes clean themselves every minute through tear exchange during blinking which happens about 12-16 times per minute and so there is no need for additional cleaning. To feel cool in hot weather, one can always clean face with their eyes closed

Is there any harm in washing?

Yes. The tear fluid has a special composition friendly for the eye surface. Its pH, osmolarity, antimicrobial property, etc. gets disturbed by putting water or drops in the eyes. Water coming down from the overhead tank into tap or wash basin may be containing bacteria, fungus, parasites, etc. of serious nature. It can also contain other impurities. So there can be a risk of infections or irritation of the eye.

So eyes should never be washed?

The only situation when eye should be profusely washed with water or any sterile liquid like sodium chloride bottle is when some chemical falls in the eye. Do not wait for anything and wash the affected eye with lot of water even before contacting a doctor. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am a 15-year-old male. I always suffer from eye itching which is beyond my control. My doctor suggested not to rub the eyes in any case but due to severe eye itching, I cannot help. My vision/eye-sight is proper. My doctor suggested eye drops like zed +, NPF, fml. They are effective no doubt but for a short period of time only. There is no disease or infection in my eyes as I have got it checked by eye doctor itself kindly help.

Use plane large glasses to protect eyes from wind, dust, sun whenever you go out. Apply cool water compresses on eyes when the itching happens but don't rub. Don't splash water in eyes. About drugs, need to discuss. If you wish you may phone consult.

Hello sir, Please advice can glaucoma be cured by using medicine's or it requires an operation.
Glaucoma can be controlled by medicines. As long as visual function and eye pressure remains stable with medicines, and if you are regular in taking medicines and follow ups, surgery is not needed.

You could be having Amblyopia (lazy eye) in Right eye. At grown up age it is usually not possible to improve vision in that eye by any means. Such eyes can be treated upto 8 years of age. You should accept vision as it is and move on in life. You may get your squint cosmetically corrected by surgery.

If your vision is good in both eyes and sufficient for your job, esp if your CV is good, presence of squint by itself may not be a hindrance in getting a job. However, some hirers like governments or defence services may have rigid exclusion criteria which you may check with them in advance.

Less Can Be More In Health Care!

Less Can Be More In Health Care!

Staying healthy is considered to be the first happiness. And, rightly so. Over years, there has been a lot of advancement in Medical Science and understanding of Health. Such has been the knowledge explosion that now we have Superspecialists treating just one system or one organ of the body. For e.g Knee Surgeon, Retina Surgeon, Liver Specialist etc.

While this is good for those patients who have difficult organ-specific troubles, let’s be clear that very few people (less than 10%) need such care. Most people are born healthy and if they live a disciplined life in terms of diet, physical activity, good sleep, etc., they will stay healthy and are unlikely to need a lot of medical interventions. There may be some routine illnesses like cough, fever, diarrhea, minor injuries, etc. which either subside or heal themselves or with a little support from a family doctor. Not all ills need pills.

In recent times, however, it is observed that thousands of procedures and prescriptions of doubtful benefit are employed due to multiple factors like scattered care, payment system, Free check-ups by companies or so called charities or marketing process, defensive medicine are provided to safeguard corporate players from litigations. Diagnostic Packages, etc. e.g, Preoperative ECG is not routinely required before eye surgery unless there is a known heart trouble or risk thereof. Quite often it appears like Services on “Sale” like you have for merchandise.

“Free check-ups or care” can become very expensive in long run. Even if free, a procedure or a drug can be potentially harmful. The first check-up may be free but it may lead to subsequent paid interventions which may be needless for all you know.

Hence in present times choosing your eye care provider and care process wisely is very necessary. Don’t get carried away by luring and fake advertisements of health improvement, etc. Don’t fall for “Free” checkups or care. There is no free lunch, someone pays either in cash or in kind! Health care interventions need to be customized to your specific needs and cannot be generalized and for that you need personalized services of a trusted doctor more than an impersonal huge glossy corporate setup.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

How to deal with my mom. She is showing high partiality between me and my brother. Some times I feel like what is the purpose of my life even mom dislikes me. In every single thing she gives importance to him only. Am elder to him am 24 and he is 18. It started from the day he born. I hate him so much because of my mom. He is sweet too. But all my life from age 6 am searching for a reason why is she doing this to me. She does all her duties for me. She loves me. I know that. But in a situation like If she wanted to choose between me and him. She chooses him blindly. This irritates me. Even dad has more affection for him than me I know that but it is not an issue to me. I hate this life no one likes me so much. I have no one to be with. I know am a grown up girl but I can't handle this. Doctor please suggest me to deal with this situation. I used to dream of an angle mother when I was a kid she never hated me or beat me. But that solution is long gone now I can't console myself by dreaming I am in need of a real solution.

Your feelings of being discriminated are reflective of Indian mindset which is heavily biased for a male child. This bias is also root cause of female foeticide and a skewed male to female ratio. The bias is based on beliefs that sons are assets and daughters are liabilities which is completely incorrect in present times when girls study more, earn like boys in any profession and can be independent. I suggest you ignore such behavior of your parents, esp mother. You focus on your study/career/ life goals as you would like them to be. With all your energy, try to be as independent, educated and confident about yourself as possible in your circumstances and have a network of friends, guides, colleagues who are strong and well meaning citizens of 21st century India. Don't feel vulnerable physically, emotionally or economically. Take charge of your own life and don't let old and wrong thinking of your mother dampen your spirits. Best wishes.

If she feels visual trouble due to ptosis, she should consider surgery. If there is no visual or functional difficulty, she may elect to leave it alone till then.

Things You Must Know About Your Eye Doctor!

Things You Must Know About Your Eye Doctor!

It is very essential in the present times to understand the training, ability and skills of the doctors whom you select for your needs.

An Eye Doctor is called an Ophthalmologist. He/she can possess following qualifications

  1. M.S (Ophth) : This is called Master Of Surgery in Ophthalmology. It takes Three years of training in a Medical Council recognized Medical College after passing M.B;B.S and includes undertaking and submission of a thesis or research Paper during the training. It can be done by obtaining seat based on Merit, Based on reservation or Based on Donation

  2. D.O (Ophth) : This is called Diploma in Ophthalmology. It is similar to M.S. except that training period is TWO years and does NOT include doing research paper

  3. DNB (Ophth): This is called Diplomat of National Board in ophthalmology. The training is done after M.B;B.S in some private institutes or hospitals recognized by National board of examinations and not in MCI recognized Medical college

Long Term Fellowships:  As the knowledge base is increasing, there is further training undertaken for super specializing in some specific field of eye surgery through a process called FELLOWSHIP. This includes training for about two years after M.S., D.O or D.N.B in some Institues of repute like Shankar Nethralaya Chennai, Aravind Eye Care Systems ( Madurai/ Coimbatore), L.V.Prasad Eye Institute ( Hyderabad) to name a few. The training involves doing actual work in specialized techniques under supervision and guidance of experts in respective fields like Retina, Cornea, Glaucoma, Oculoplasty, Phaco and Refractive Surgery, Paediatric Ophthalmology, Neurophthalmology etc.

Short Term Fellowships: They are similar to long term fellowships but training period is very short , like 2-3 months . The training helps a general ophthalmologist to acquire some skills in a speciality but not sufficient to be able to be a super specialist. However, some doctors with such training may claim to be superspecialists!

ACEDEMIC FELLOWSHIPS: Such fellowships test the knowledge of Doctor through two or three steps of examinations/ Viva. There is no practical training given Examples are,

FRCS: Fellow of Royal College of Surgeons

FICO: Fellow of International Council of Ophthalmologists

FAICO: Fellow of All India Collegium of Ophthalmologists

Some senior Ophthalmologists who were trained in multiple eye diseases and worked for a long time in handling them may be as good as superspecialists in some areas.

Besides Ophthalmologists, some trained personnel can undertake some eye care tasks like

Optometrists: They can assess and prescribe Spectacle power(numbers), prescribe and dispense contact lenses, run some eye tests on machines.

Opticians: They can make/ sell glasses or contact lenses as prescribed by Ophthalmologists/ optometrists. They can not prescribe. Yet, many shops do so without Optometrists.

Ophthalmic Technicians: They can operate machines like Perimetry, OCT, A scan ultrasonography, Topography etc.

Hope that now the readers are better informed about their eye care providers. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ophthalmologist.
