I wear contacts and I have been forgetting to take them off once a week like the eye doctor said. I wore my last for a month straight. Is that bad?

I wear contacts and I have been forgetting to take them off once a week like the eye doctor said. I wore my last for a month straight. Is that bad?

You nailed it!: We did a major study of the cause of corneal ulcers, a type of sight threatening corneal infection and found that the number one cause is due to people sleeping or having poor hygiene of their contact lens ie washing in tab water. Most ophthalmologist prefer that you do not even sleep with your contact lens at all or even better get the daily type of contact lens. Please take precaution. ...Read more

Short sight(-1.2 both eyes) problem from last 3yrs. Doctors suggest to wear glasses but i'm not fond of wearing that. Is there any natural way to cure

Short sight(-1.2 both eyes) problem from last 3yrs. Doctors suggest to wear glasses but i'm not fond of wearing that. Is there any natural way to cure

No: This isn't being unspiritual or closed-minded. From my own reading, the bates exercises haven't held up on controlled studies, which doesn't surprise me. This is a critical time in your life for learning and career, and being short-sighted will put you at a disadvantage. It is perhaps criminal to drive a motor vehicle without good vision. Get contact lenses or other rx. ...Read more

Back ache my back has been hurting me for the last 2 weeks and my doctor says it is nothing and wont give me anything and tylenol and ibeprophin isnt helping. I have to lift my handicapped brother multiple times a day, he is 80+ lbs. I wear a back brace,

I : I recommend: 1. Rest, getting help with your brother and taking anti-inflammatories like ibuprofen. 2. If the pain does not improve over the next couple weeks, you should follow-up with your doctor and consider physical therapy or chiropractic treatments. 3. If the pain still does not improve then you should see a spine specialist for consideration for interventional injection treatments. Good luck! ...Read more

What do you suggest if my grandma is ill. doctor said there is nothing left to do. what can I do to make her last days happy?

Let her know you: love her. Spend time with her (but not to the point of tiring her out). Would she like her hand held or feet gently rubbed? Is there particular music or flowers that she was really fond of? You are a caring grandchild. ...Read more

26 year old male. Been wetting my bed doctor said I have over active blater. She said wear protection. What does she mean by that ?

Make sure u see: A urologist. This over activity is not as usual in males and it appears to be a new onset issue. See a urologist for an opinion or better yet one will answer this question. Loss of bladder control could be a miminal issue, other than psychologic part and one of many meds for overactive bladder will help, or there may be an issue concerning infection; most concerning is a deep neurologic issue. ...Read more
