Will Polarized Sunglasses Work With Only One Working Eye
Will help some: A pinquecula is the result of irritation to the lining tissue of the eye called conjunctiva. Sun, wind, contact lenses and air pollutants will aggravate the problem so the glasses will help. Keep the eyes well lubricated with artificial tears.

Should both eyes be fitted with lens for distance or only one for up close work for cataract surgery?
Worth a discussion: Using a different power in each eye, termed monovision, is a popular way to avoid the use of eyeglasses. If you get the distance power in each eye then you would need reading glasses. Consider also multifocal lenses which cost extra but can give you reasonable far and near vision after the surgery. This should be discussed with the surgeon doing the work for you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can wearing an eye patch, closing one eye, improve vision and minor eye lag/lazy eye in other eye? How much training would it take to improve
Possibly: If you had patching when you were an infant and a young child, then your eyes (each alone) may have reached their best potential vision by age eight. The vision can then drop in one of the eyes and be brought up to its best 8 year old level when you are older. If the vision was poor by age eight, then you are out of luck. ...Read more

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
