During surgery, the doctor replaces the catarac with an intraocular lens implant. This lens has the capacity to permanently correct myopia (much like a contact lens does), and definitely cures cataracts. ...Read more

I'm 20. Can eyeglasses realign a lazy eye with the other eye, and improve its vision aswell?

I'm 20. Can eyeglasses realign a lazy eye with the other eye, and improve its vision aswell?

Rx May help: Ambliopia is the process where the brain ignores the "camera" picture from one eye because it is less clear or causes double vision. It can sometimes be improved if the weaker eye is strengthened (glasses), the stronger eye is patched or if the eye is lined up better with surgery. If the process has gone on too long, the brain ignores the fix & surgery is simply cosmetic. ...Read more

Have a retinal disattachment 8 yrs ago....now no eye vision....suggest some further treatment or solution....my eye black colour is fading down?

We consider intervention for eyes that look bad or are hurting. See your ophthalmologist to assess your current situation and you should be seen regularly to protect the remaining eye. ...Read more

Do pinhole glasses help for poor vision?

Do pinhole glasses help for poor vision?

Sometimes: If the reason for your poor vision is a refractive error (i.e., can be corrected with glasses), then many times pinhole glasses can improve vision. The reason is that the pinhole only lets one ray of light through a hole, so there is theoretically no focal point where multiple light rays converge, and thus the single ray is 'in focus' at any point along it. They don't work for cataracts, etc. ...Read more
