Brief Answer:
It requires vision testing and eye examination.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to health care magic.

I am Dr. Dadapeer K, an ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.

It seems from the history that you are having dimunition of vision gradual in onset and progressive in nature over one and half month.

These symptoms indicate eye problems like refractive error, cataract, retinal problems like retinopathies. No need to worry as all of these can be treated.
Hence this requires examination by a ophthalmologist to find out the underlying cause.
I require more details like
Dimunition of vision is in one eye or both the eyes
Presence of associated symptoms like pain, redness, glare, sensitivity to light...
You are required to undergo vision and refraction testing, examination of anterior and posterior segmentsof the eye.

Do get back to me with details of examination so that I can answer your question more accurately.

Hope the information is helpful to you.

Thank you
With regards

Dear

I do not have pain, redness, glare, sensitivity to light. But I do have cataract in my right eye, the eye which was hit in an accident in my childhood. I believe that it is my left eye which has started showing problem now.

Please suggest what all tests I need to go through and also suggest what preventive actions I can take. Any best practices in this direction will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

Brief Answer:
Left eye requires evaluation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thank you for the follow up question.

Since you had a injury to right eye in childhood, probably you are having trauma related cataract in right eye.
This requires treatment by cataract surgery for right eye.
Left eye needs to be examined by vision and refraction testing, slit examination and fundus examinations to find out the underlying cause and treatment accordingly.

The preventive actions for healthy eyes is by intake of foods rich in antioxidants and vitamin A like green leafy vegetables, carrot... Along with this eye injuries needs to be avoided.

Do consult your ophthalmologist for examination of the left eye and please get back to me with the test reports, so that I can suggest you further advice.

Hope the information is helpful to you.

Hi, I ve been taking Cod liver soft gels 1000 & Chewable celin (Vitamin C) daily and have noticed increase in hair fall. I checked online and it suggests excessive vitamin A & C can both lead to hair loss? Is once a day an excessive dosage? Should I change it to twice a week? Also, should I add Vitamin E soft gels & biotin to my supplements? I eat a healthy veg diet otherwise and get my protein from eggs, soya & pulses. Pls advice if Keraglo EVA is a good addition? Thanks!

I had 2 twisted intestine surgeries-removed ascending colon and top part going across, secum and part of small intestine. Is it possible now that my body is not able to absorb vitamins, minerals and healthy foods I'm eating? I have had 3 neck surgeries where the bones involved are not healing and I wonder if this is a reason why. I take 3,ooo IU's of vitamin D and eat a diet rich in calcium.I rarely eat meat but I do eat some salmon and chicken, and take fiber daily. I'm 59 , weigh 125, 4 ft 5 1/2 in, am relatively healthy besides this-take daily meds for migraines, have IBS(constipation) scoliosis so I walk for exercise, and have fibromyalgia which is under control.

However I don’t feel well, some time, and a constant fear runs in my mind is being sick another time, which can really hamper my studies and my personal life. Though I look fine but I really don’t know what to do. I am 92 kgs of weight, and sometime I have muscle aches, and other kinds of muscular illness, I masturbate a lot which I think that refers to my back pain. Apart from that and all these sir what can I do to prevent this life threatening illness to show up again.
