Home Remedies For Short Sightedness
What is the cause(s) of halos in short sightedness especially in 3rf trimester of pregnancy ie. 34 weeks.?
Genetics+environment: Myopia, in a simple model, depends on refractive index of cornea-tear film, lens, length of eye. So if any of these are altered so that the image focuses in front of the retina (steep k, longer eye, higher refractive lens index, etc.), then you become short sighted. The anatomy of the eye is inherited and a lot of near work can affect it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Internal growth: Almost all eyes are shorter than needed at birth (farsighted) and eyes grow with development. This changes the eyes to near and far sightedness to many. The cause then is growth combined with heredity and birth issues. ...Read more
2 different things: A cataract is an opacity in the lens of the eye that can blur your vision. Myopia is a refractive error that is corrrectable with glasses in which your near vision is clear without glasses or contacts but can be made clear with the proper eyeglass or contact prescription. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Oval eye shape: Refractive errors require either plus (farsighted) or minus (nearsighted) glasses + an extra amount if the eye is oval in shape (astigmatism). These are called refractive errors and can be corrected with glasses or contacts. Short sightedness is another term for myopia which uncorrected usually allows for good vision at near and blur at distance. ...Read more

I hav short sightedness with power almost 600&700, how can I prevent it from further rising n to lower the power? Wat to do n what to eat?
No natural solution: This is often hereditary and there is no way to prevent but some ways to correct it. For example, once the nearsightedness has stabilized, you may consider lasik. However even then, you may still at risk for retinal detachment and i urge you to get regular ophthalmologic exam in case that happens. Those purported eye training programs are bogus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Near-sightedness cannot be corrected by any type of eye exercise. However, there are suggestions that near-sightedness is made worse with prolonged accommodation (using your eyes muscles to focus at close distances) in children. Wearing bifocals may slow its progression. At your age, the near-sightedness should be stable and cannot be influenced by anything you do. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Eye health/vision: Check in with an ophthalmologist. Take a friend with you to hear the consultation and answers to your question.

Can myopia (short sightedness ) treated naturally without surgery or glasses? I heard that sunlight could help
No: Sunlight will do nothing for myopia. This condition is due to an abnormal shape of the eye that results in refractive error (think of a lens directing sunlight to a specific point). It is a very common occurrence and by itself, results in no significant health issues. But to correct this so you can see in focus, you need contacts, glasses, or refractive surgery (e.g. Lasik). ...Read more
I have short-sightedness with degree of 150-200 for both eyes. How can I improve my eyesight instead of wearing glasses?
Options...: For correcting near-sightedness include glasses, contacts, and surgeries. Surgeries can be broken down into two broad groups: laser-based surgeries such as lasik or intraocular-based surgeries such as refractive lens exchange. Your near-sighted prescription should be stable before considering any type of surgery. ...Read more
My 4 yrs old son is diagnosed with short sightedness & stigmatism (-6,+2.25x90) both eyes. Is this really bad for this age?
NO-Will prevent lazy: Not likely to prevent it getting worse but wearing glasses will prevent him from losing vision due to amblyopia. He also has astigmatism of a moderate amount and will develop a lazy eye that cannot be corrected to 20/20 if you do not get him into glasses. He will need regular follow up with an eye specialist until he's 18 and can have LASIK. Make sure he gets Vitamin B2 Riboflavin in his diet. ...Read more

My 4 yrs son is diagnsd with short sightedness & stigmatism(-6,+2.25x90)both eyes.He also cant tolerate natural bright light.Could these be related?
Not likely: More likely due to his age and lack of pigment in the lens of the child's eye. This is normal and as a person gets older and more exposed to ultraviolet light, the crystalline lens of the eye will get more pigmented and yellowed then brown. This is why newborn babies do not like to go out in the sunlight and squint or put their hands up to block the light. This will get better with age. ...Read more
My 4 yrs old son is diagnosed with short sightedness & astigmatism (-6,+2.25x90) both eyes. Could watching ipad have done it or possibly made it worse?
Not Likely: While there are some good studies from Israel and SIngapore that try to answer the "chicken or egg" cause, most myopia is inherited from the parents. The studies ask "Are kids with myopia that way because they read so much more or are do they read more because they are myopic and don't see as well for distance in sports? Recent research is attempting to see if taking Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) helps ...Read more
My 4 yrs old son is dgnosed with short sightedness & astigmtsm(-6,+2.25x90)both eyes.What are risks if he doesnt wear prescrptn eye glasses for this?
He wouldn't learn: or live properly, his eyesight would be affected more. If you are worried about social interaction while wearing glasses, he would suffer more if not having correct eyesight. Talk to a Pediatric Opthalmologist, if you have access to one, or his regular Ophthalmologist for alternative treatments / long term care, your son will be just fine, best wishes ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
