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.

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.

There are many different types of squints and their correction approaches are different. However, although your information is grossly inadequate, generally a squint from birth doesn't correct naturally.

Glaucoma - What About It?

M.S. Ophthalmology
Ophthalmologist, Vadodara
Glaucoma - What About It?

Glaucoma is a blinding disease, estimated to be present in about 8% of population, in which the Optic Nerve is damaged, usually due to high pressure inside the eye( but can also happen with normal Eye Pressure). This damage can lead to loss of vision which cannot be reversed after it has occurred. However, early treatment can control this disease and prevent or delay blindness.

In most people it is without any symptoms, esp. in Chronic type. So most patients are not diagnosed before extensive damage is done. Hence regular eye examination are important.

Symptoms can be: (a) Frequent change in reading glasses (b) Difficulty in dark adaptation. (c) Bumping into things at unfamiliar places.(d) Blurred or foggy vision. (e) Coloured halos (rainbow coloured rings) around lights. (f) Acute type may present with severe eye pain, vomiting, & vision loss.

Hence, Early diagnosis, proper treatment & proper monitoring are very essential to preserve vision till life span. All people over 45 yrs age & all first relatives of known glaucoma patients must get themselves checked for Eye Pressure and Glaucoma periodically.

Early & appropriate diagnosis is done by judicious use of

  1. Applanation Tonometry: Gold standard to measure Eye Pressure
  2. Pachymetry: For corneal thickness influencing eye pressure check
  3. Early morning: Eye Pressure check to know pressure variations in a day
  4. Stereoscopic: Optic nerve examination & photography
  5. Automated Perimetry: To detect visual field defects
  6. Gonioscopy: To diagnose type of glaucoma- open angle or angle closure- which have different lines of treatment

In present days, OCT(Ocular Coherence Tomography) is used to image the optic nerve but its use is supportive and still not considered a standard of care.

Medical treatment with eye drops & regular follow-ups to ensure pressure control, compliance, address adverse effects , detect progression if any , can help to maintain the vision for a long time

Those patients who are not regular in using drops or who do not follow up as advised or are not controlled by maximum tolerated medical treatment or have narrow angle type of glaucoma may be treated by Surgical/ LASER treatment as under,

  1. Trabeculectomy: Fluid bypass for open angle type
  2. Laser Peripheral Iridotomy: Fluid bypass for narrow angle type
  3. Laser Trabeculoplasty: A stop gap treatment in place of medicines
  4. Laser Cyclophotocoagulation: For blinded painful glaucoma eyes
  5. Glaucoma Valve: In glaucoma not responding to usual surgical treatment. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ophthalmologist.

The eye burning may be independent of urinary infection. However, both may be happening because of dryness induced by aging and menopause. The severity of eye condition will decide line of action. If you wish, you may come for phone consultation for detailed discussion.

I had passed through the squint surgery when I was child. I suffered from double vision with is correct now. My vision is poor although. But main thing is there is a slight misalignment from both eyes. I feel uncomfortable when someone spot it. My confidence level is drop down. I went to a hospital for it. They said its risky to do another surgery. What to do now? I have options of Eye exercises which I think will never work after stitches in eyes. Next is homeopathy, ayurvedic etc.

You may take a second opinion preferrably of a squint specialist. If he/she also feels it is risky to do more surgery, leave it at that and accept. Forget homeopathy or Ayurved in this matter. I just saw a video of a pedal riksha puller who does'nt have one arm and one leg. He still pulls rickshaw cheerfully and earns his livelyhood. Don't let physical disabilities disable your spirit!

I don't think any pathy can change skin color. Respect and accept what nature has given. It is the overall personality that matters and not skin color. So groom your daughter to be a strong and good human being without worrying about skin color. Many dark people have made it big in life. Your daughter is just 5 years and I am sure she is not bothered about her skin color at this stage. Please do not make her conscious of her skin color. If you don't make it an issue, it will be easier for her as she grows up. Keep assuring her that it is ok to have a dark skin and that you don't consider that as a problem or disadvantage.
