How to get out of the habit of squinting my eyes at people?

Spectacle/sunglasses: Generally, the squinting of one's eye is not a habit. It is mostly for one of two reasons: the need for a refractive correction (glasses or contacts) or light sensitivity in sunlight or bright lights.

If you get paint thinner in your eyes, will it cause instant, permanent loss of vision?

If you get paint thinner in your eyes, will it cause instant, permanent loss of vision?

No: Paint thinner is caustic and can cause significant ocular damage if prolonged contact occurs. If you flush it out quickly, severe injury can be avoided. Vision after a corneal burn from paint thinner will be poor immediately after the injury but should improve as the eyes heal. The final vision varies depending on the extent of the injury. ...Read more

Dear doctors, what will happen to our eyes,when we forcibly stare at a bright source of light? Does it cause any damage to the eye?

Dear doctors, what will happen to our eyes,when we forcibly stare at a bright source of light? Does it cause any damage to the eye?

Usually nothing: Most light sources (except the sun and lasers) are not sufficiently intense to do any damage. You of course will find staring at bright light to be uncomfortable, but your pupils will get automatically smaller and the retina involuntarily moves in little rapid motions which minimize the intensity for any one point. ...Read more

I'm thinking of doing laser on my eyebrows. Being so close to the eyes will this possibly cause a seizure?

Unlikely: I am guessing that you have stroboscopic light induced seizures or something like that. If you have laser treatment for your brows, your eyes will be covered and protected so seizures will not be caused by the light. ...Read more
