See a doctor: Drugs like k2 and spice are not "alternatives" to marijuana, they are highly variable and sometimes very unsafe synthetic chemicals that have been associated, unlike marijuana, with high rates of psychosis, seizures and even death. You need a physical exam, and you need some help with finding alternatives to drugs - a treatment program of some kind. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can i use onion +ginger juice drops in my eye. I have read somewhere it is antiseptic and keeps eyes fresh and filters out impurities in forms of tear?
Not a good idea: These are eye irritants. They certainly will help flush out the eyes by producing excess tears. But your natural tears are wonderfully capable of cleaning out your eyes without this kind of help. There is a lot of ridiculous information that is published on web sites and magazines - most of which can be ignored and some even harmful. ...Read more

Proper diagnosis guides the treatment which may include artificial tears, Restasis, punctum plugs, flax seed oil, or even surgery depending on the cause and severity of the condition. ...Read more

In glaucoma my eye pressure has dropped from 28 to 15 using travatan. Is it likely progression of glaucoma and nerve damage has been stopped?
Slowed: Maybe not stopped but much better protection with that result. This condition may always progress despite a nice response to the eyedrop, but it is the rate of progression that will in most cases slow considerably when the pressures are well-controlled. Different stages of glaucoma will require different therapeutic approaches, from eye drops to surgery. Therefore it is critical to be monitored. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Many eyedrops: The normal saline is to me unknown as to saline strength and sterility. Multiple eye drops are available in the pharmacies which can function as eye rinse. Unless there is an immediate need, you can wait to purchase the proper drops. If the symptoms are persistent, it would be wise to see an ophthalmologist for evaluation. ...Read more

Start by seeing your ophthalmologist or optometrist who may or may not be able to help you. If they can't, please see a Dermatologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I've had 3 retinal detachment surgeries in the past year and regularly use cannabis. Could cannabis use and its IOP lowering effects also cause PVD?
Not from cannabis: The posterior vitreous detachment would be related to the retinal detachment surgery in the same eye. If the PVD is in the other eye it may be related to myopia. High myopia is associated with retinal detachment and PVD. I stongly suggest you be examined by your ophthalmologist to rule out a PVD related retinal tear. None of this is related to cannabis use. ...Read more
