I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Why do I have nil power in the left and -1.00 in the right eye and is it safe to use the computer after wearing spectacles ?

My glass prescription says that my power in the left eye is 0.00 and in the right eye is -1.00. What can you say about this and can I use computer again after wearing specs?

Sir, I am 29 years old. My height is 5.5 ft and weight is 65 kg. I am wearing glasses having a power of -2.50(cylindrical) and -1.00 (spherical) in right eye and -2.25(cyl) and -2.25(spl) in left eye. I am wearing glasses since 2004. I have some additional problems like eye flotters, light sensitivity, itching etc. I used to masturbate in the teen age. I have no other disease. I work in a govt office and have to sit before computer for 8 to 9 hours. kindly give me suggestion how can I minimize my eye problems and increase my eye power. I donot take sweets and sour foods. I think spoiling of semen has invited the problems. I want to decrease my glass power. Kindly help me doctor.

Hi, My name is Amit aged 25 years and I am from Bangalore, India. I am having Squint in the left eye. The way I identified it. One day many of them started mocking at me and started to act weird and since that day of my schooling I felt shy to even face them and felt infierior to them. On checking with the mirror while combing the hair I saw a difference in the sight and after checking for several times and confirming I got to know that the Left eye ball sees 180 degree opposite off the right, however I can focus straight on the entity which I want to see properly without diversion like normal people with the right eye. I have consulted Narayana Netralaya in Bangalore, Cord road, Rajajinagar, Beside to ISKCON and all they said that my left eye is dead and it is of no use to either correct it or leave it. I have also consulted several eye doctors including Shakara Netralaya in Bangalore and they too mentioned the same thing and I have been wearing glasses for more than 14 years now since the time being in school. I have tested myself just to check if the doctors were right about it, however I feel the doctors are just joking with me as I tried closing right eye with hands or clothes and checked if left eye is really dead, but I can partially see so I believe either doctors are joking with me or they do not want to correct the eyes. I feel ashamed to move in public, mingle in social or with people as they tend to see me as an handicap and literally some people illtreate me. I just tend to move careless at it because when I stand in front of the mirror I see exactly what others see it even with glasses. Whenever I approach a eye doctor or an optician all they do is just ignore the squint issue and check the eye power and give another glass with different levels via., right with lesser (-0.25) and left with higher (+0.25) stating that giving something is better than nothing as they tend to say left eye if dead and they can do nothing with it. What I really want to know is that Is there a real way to rectify the issue? Or just leave the eye just as it is now? I fear if this issue does not cause any harm to right eye

1.) I had undergone LASEK surgery three years back, but my number has been increasing since then. It is currently -4 in my my right eye and -3.50 in my left eye. I have been told that my cornea is not as thick as it should be (460) to undergo laser surgery again. I have been prescribed FML (Fluorometholone opthalmic suspension) and Nepalact (Nepafenac opthalmic suspension) drops twice a day for three months as the doctor mentioned some haze and wants to find out why the number has been increasing. Are these drops safe? 2.) For the last month, I have also been experiencing a floater in my right eye which is very distracting. Are there any eye exercises to get rid of it? 3.) What can I do to reduce my number? Are there any eye exercises for this? Is there any other laser treatment I can undergo?

my wife over the last 4 years has developed, what feels like, sore muscles behind and around her eyes. She is 43yrs old, works on the computer and travel for work too. But she always has and this problem has just started over the last four years. She tends to blink a lot now. I keep thinking its something to do with her central nervous system or something causing nerve or muscle strain around her eyes. Any ideas on what to do?
