I use my cell phone as long as I'm free so my eyes get blurry and I experience tunnel vision so what can I do to relieve my eyes without medication?
Greetings Dr Sandra, I have a problem wit my eyes because While I was off my mind I stared at the sun, is there any medication that I can use to heal m?
Depends: Is the vision changed? Staring at the sun normally is too painful to sustain and you would blink and probably avoid the light to prevent damage. True staring at the sun while not blinking focuses the sun on the light receptors of the retina and will burn them out causing permanent loss. No medication will correct this but time will cause some improvement. ...Read more
