For Your EYES - Prevention Is Better Than Cure

Dr. Parul Sharma
Head of Department-Gurgaon / Associate Director-Delhi
Eye Care, Ophthalmology

For most of eye diseases, early detection is the best prevention. Preventive Tips: Protect your eyes from Ultra-Violet rays of the sun- Wear sunglasses that block 90 to100 percent UVA and UVB rays. Increase your consumption of antioxidants and vitamins through foods and supplements- Vitamins C & E, beta-carotene, and the mineral selenium are great for your eyes. Increase your intake of yellow fruits and green vegetables like carrots, green leafy vegetables, papaya, mango, grapes, broccoli, etc. for healthy eyes. Get yourself checked- All individuals above 40 should undergo eye pressure check to detect Glaucoma, especially if there is a family history or if you have diabetes or thyroid disease or have taken steroids in the past. Glaucoma leads to optic nerve damage due to high eye pressures. It has no symptoms and if detected in time, it can be managed well by medicines, laser or surgery. All individuals above 50 years of age with weak vision, glare, etc. should also be examined for Cataract & ARMD- age related macular degeneration. Cataract has no medical treatment and can be taken care by day care surgery-without stitch, without injection, without patch technique of micro-incision phacoemulsification with foldable intraocular lens. Toric and Mutifocal lens after cataract surgery also gives the benefit of getting rid of glasses after cataract surgery.
