Heat: If you feel one coming on, get a wash cloth and put it under very warm (not hot) tap water and apply to the eye for 4 minutes about 5 times per day. This will usually get rid of it. Eyedrops with antibiotics will not do anything. It is always helpful to maintain good hygiene and clean the eye regularly. ...Read more
I have unequal refractive power in both eyes and I get persisting eye strain. Is there a solution?
Adjust power: Once the eyes are unequal over 2 or 3 diopters (anisometropia), some people may experience eye strain. Also large differences can cause image size disparity (aniseikonia). Either adjust the refractive power by undercorrecting to match, by using contact lens, by doing some sort of refractive procedure, i.e. Lasik, lens removal, exchange or placement, etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Throw light on LASIK eye surgery. Is it save at the age of 32 years with myopia with my glass power being 4.75 spherical for both eyes?
Not recommended: It is generally not a good idea to have surgery for a benign condition. 1-2% complication rate is too high for me for a condition that can be treated without surgery. In about 10-15 years you will still need glasses, for presbyopia, even if you have lasik now. I would not recommend it. ...Read more

Can see videos: Online.

Weak eye remedy myopia. My eyesight is - 5 for both eyes i don't want to go for laser treatment. Plz tel me manual ways to correct eyesight?
Contacts or glasses: Minus 5 diopters is a lot of myopia...Probably too much to be corrected with ortho-k, a technique where hard contacts are worn at night to re-shape the eye. There are several surgical ways to correct myopia including prk, lasik and the implantable contact lens. If you don't want surgery, glasses or soft contacts are the way to go! ...Read more
I have a corrective lens prescription for myopia. How do I derive the intermediate (computer) distance from a D.V. prescription?
Add a little plus: In most cases the prescription will be for distance indicating some degree of minus power. To adjust for computer screen distance, add +1.25 to this power and that usually works. Note however, that the pupillary distance (the space between each eye) is set for distance viewing (usually 57-63 mm) and needs to be adjusted closer for viewing of a video screen. ...Read more
Should I wear my nearsighted glasses for reading and looking at computer? My prescription is -1.75 rt eye, -.75 left eye. Will it make vision worse?
Q1: no. Q2: maybe.: If you are "nearsighted," that means you need your glasses for distance, like for driving, but not reading. Conversely, if you are "farsighted" you need your glasses for up-close vision, like reading but not driving. Using your distance lenses for reading will stress your eyes, and may leave you with a headache and even some mild fatigue. Make sure your prescription is current. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
