My daughter's eye prescription is od -3.00 sphere +2.00 cylinder 110 aaxis and os -6.00 sphere +2.50 cylinder 30 axis what does this mean?

My daughter's eye prescription is od -3.00 sphere +2.00 cylinder 110 aaxis and os -6.00 sphere +2.50 cylinder 30 axis what does this mean?

OD is right eye,: OS is left eye. The first #s. sphere, are negative, meaning she is nearsighted. The second #s (cylinder) is the amount of astigmatism that is present. Since astigmatism means the eye is focusing light at an angle, astigmatism comes with a rotation axis. The cylinder is rotated to this axis so that the light can be focused straight on. ...Read more

It's okay to use alcons tears natural free (lubricant eye drops) on top of my contact lenses right?

It's okay to use alcons tears natural free (lubricant eye drops) on top of my contact lenses right?

Preservative free ok: If you use artificial tears with your soft contact lenses, it is best if they are preservative free so that the preservatives don't leech into the lenses. Alternatively there are many good contact lens friendly lubricating drops on the market. ...Read more

My eye power pres. Is, od:sphere+0.75cylinder-1.00. Axis 120, os:+1.00.-0.75., 075. Add.+2.50.What power reading glass(temporary one, drug store)?

+2.50: +2.50 would probably be the closest, but try them on. Pick the weakest ones that let you read at a comfortable distance. Remember, the stronger the glasses, the closer you have to hold the reading material and the smaller the range of vision. So, for a computer distance you might try a 1.25. ...Read more

Is it safe to use alcons tears natural free (lubricant eye drops) on top of my contact lences?

Is it safe to use alcons tears natural free (lubricant eye drops) on top of my contact lences?

Yes: Occasional use of artificial tears is okay with contacts in. Frequent use tends to gum up the contacts; so artificial tears that are designed to be used with contact lenses are better. They are labelled "for use with contact lenses". ...Read more

My eye power is bc 8.5/sph -6.00 cyl -1.75/ax 180. Can I get lasik eye surgery?

Most likely yes: With current laser technology, a prescription of sph -6.00 cyl -1.75/ax 180 is able to be corrected very well. To determine if you are a candidate for LASIK, a thorough eye exam that includes measuring the cornea thickness would be needed. ...Read more

Optho: TINY scratch cornea wind blew hair. Optometrist rx'd drops sulfa base. Allergic to sulfa. Pharm concerned. Opto said use moisturizing drops, probably heal naturally. Minor Discomfort. Thoughts?

Optho: TINY scratch cornea wind blew hair. Optometrist rx'd drops sulfa base. Allergic to sulfa. Pharm concerned. Opto said use moisturizing drops, probably heal naturally. Minor Discomfort. Thoughts?

Don't use sulfa: If you are allergic to sulfa you should not use it. If the discomfort is minimal or mild it may be OK to just use moisturizing drops. Most cornea abrasions heal within 24 hours as the cornea is the most rapidly healing tissue in the body. There is always a concern for infection hence ordering antibiotics but others are avaialble instead of sulfa if needed. Ask you eye doctor. ...Read more

Ideveloped dry eyes (only left eye)with use of laptop.doc told me to blink eye more often&prescribed alernil-o,ofolacin-dx aqualube drops.Is it cured?

Ideveloped dry eyes (only left eye)with use of laptop.doc told me to blink eye more often&prescribed alernil-o,ofolacin-dx aqualube drops.Is it cured?

Likely not a cure: Most dryness is chronic but the use of lubricating drops will take care of the symptoms and any possible damage. If the problem is simply dryness, you do not need that combination drop which includes an antibiotic. Over the counter lubricating drops should do fine. Do not use drops that say "gets the red out" as these are drying. ...Read more

What is better, amo signature phacoemulsification system or bausch and lomb zyoptix 217z100 laser treatment ?

What is better, amo signature phacoemulsification system or bausch and lomb zyoptix 217z100 laser treatment ?

Different treatments: Unrelated question, phacoemulsification is done for cataract surgery and the b&l laser is for refractive laser surgery. One removes your crystalline lens that has a cataract and the other reshapes the cornea. So there is no comparison here. Both machines have had good results if done correctly as with other similar but different brands but for very different problems. ...Read more

Pay for the Med: The best option is for you to pay for the medication. I am sorry to report but you will never win this battle with Molina in Washington State. I think their whole purpose is to make money and deny coverage for all of their patients. ...Read more

I discarded 2 pairs of high cost progressive eyeglass lenses due to inaccurate astigmatism results by 2 optometrists. The 3rd one got it right. Why?

I discarded 2 pairs of high cost progressive eyeglass lenses due to inaccurate astigmatism results by 2 optometrists. The 3rd one got it right. Why?

3rd Times a charm: Is the question, why did the 3rd one get it right? That could be that the 3rd one got it right because he did a better job-Or that he saw the other 2's mistakes & did not repeat those mistakes. If you are asking why the other 2 optoms gave you glasses that your eyes were not comfortable with then it could be a few reasons. If you are asking why you discarded 2 pairs of glasses, that is a good "?" ...Read more

I been suffered perennial allergies since 8 years ago and till now. Does both alcon patanol (olopatadine) and flarex can help to recovery. ?

I been suffered perennial allergies since 8 years ago and till now. Does both alcon patanol (olopatadine) and flarex can help to recovery. ?

See below: Patanol, (olopatadine) made by Alcon, is an eye drop with anti-histamine & anti-cholinergic activity :good for allergies. Flarex is a steroid eye drop. I'm not an eye doctor, but my belief is that, while both are effective for perennial allergies, the former is safe while the latter is not. You can develop an eye infection which can be devastating and mask the signs with Flarex. How about cetirizine pills? ...Read more

Hello doc im using alcon patanol (olopatadine) to treat my itchy eyes and it effective but my face become puffy especially at eyes area?

Eye allergy: Puffiness around the eyes is common manifestation of the allergy. The Patanol (olopatadine) should help with this. However, in rare instances, an allergy to a preservative in the eye drops develops which CAUSES worsening eye redness/puffiness. Discuss with your doctor or Allergist as a trial on an alternative may be warranted. ...Read more

Can alcon (patanol) eye drops be used for red eyes? Need expert opinions!

Perhaps: Patanol (olopatadine) is specifically indicated for relief of ocular allergy symptoms which may include redness. However, redness can also be caused by a variety of other ocular problems beyond allergy for which Patanol (olopatadine) may not be the appropriate medication. You should see your ophthalmologist if your redness is ongoing, accompanied by discharge or pain or not resolving quickly. ...Read more

My doctor prescribe alcon maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) 5ml eye drop/ear drops for my 4.5 year old son for his ear. Can i give this to my 1.5 year toddler for his ear too?

My doctor prescribe alcon maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) 5ml eye drop/ear drops for my 4.5 year old son for his ear. Can i give this to my 1.5 year toddler for his ear too?

Check with doc first: It is possible that Maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) might treat year 1.5 year old son in the same was as the older son. But the younger might have an entirely different issue. Your best strategy is to check with the same doctor who I assume is a pediatrician, who can decide if the condition is one that Maxitrol (dexamethasone neomycin and polymyxin) will help. Otherwise you are treating on hope rather than fact. ...Read more

Does bumping your head to wall lower your IQ?

Depends: There is all degrees of "bumping" . You could bump your head in a minor fashion passing though a tight hallway or be blown against it in an explosion. If you fell off the bed of a truck & sustained brain damage you would expect loss of some function. However, we know that many kids head bang as a self soothing practice & grow up to be fine. So in many instances there is no effect. ...Read more
