Myth: Cataract can be prevented by medicines, diet, eye exercise or yoga

Fact: There is no prevention for cataract.

Myth: Cataract can be cured by eyedrops, diet or yoga.

Fact: There is no medical cure for cataract and the only definitive treatment is surgery if it is progressive and causing a problem in vision.

Myth: Cataract surgery should be delayed and done only when it ripens

Fact: Best time to get surgery done is when you start having early visual problems in your day to day life.

Myth: Cataract surgery is painful and recovery time is long

Fact: It is a painless surgery. Patient is allowed day to day routine activities from next day itself and most people resume work in few days.

Myth: Spectacles are never required after cataract surgery

Fact: the spectacles are required after surgery. Monofocal intraocular lens work well for distance but you have to wear reading glasses. Multifocal intraocular lens can give freedom or decrease dependence on from both distance and near glasses For multifocal lens, there is a selection criteria which the doctor needs to decide after examining your eyes.

For Your EYES - Prevention Is Better Than Cure

June 27, 2014 0 183 1 minute, 4 seconds read

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.

Eye Care in Summer & Monsoon Months

August 29, 2019 0 4 minutes, 10 seconds read



The scorching Indian summer brings with it a lot of eye problems and monsoon, while it ushers in relief from heat, it adds to the woes of the eyes. 

What are the common eye problems seen during summer?

  • Eye Allergies especially spring catarrh
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Styes
  • Dry Eye
  • Trachoma & Swimming Pool Conjunctivitis
  • Other infections

What is conjunctivitis?

The surface of the white of the eye and the back surface of eyelids is covered by a thin protective membrane called conjunctiva. Inflammation i.e. redness & swelling, of this membrane is called conjunctivitis.

What causes it?

The common causes of conjunctivitis are:

  • Infection - Virus, Bacteria, Chlamydia, etc.
  • Allergy - to dust, pollen, animal dandruff, medicines, cosmetics, contact-lenses, etc.
  • Chemicals - acid, alkali, cosmetics, contact lens cleaning solutions, bleach in swimming pool, etc.
  • Injury - mechanical, heat, radiation, etc.

Viral infections are prone to occur as epidemics during rainy season when the body immunity may be low and the conditions are favorable for spread of infection. Infection tends to spread by direct contact, fingers, flies and fomites (e.g. towel, toiletries, etc).

What is the treatment?

Ideally one should consult an eye surgeon immediately and have proper treatment initiated. But if medical help is not immediately available then it may help to wash the eye gently with clean water, do some cold compresses using ice packs, and instill some mild antibiotic drops (e.g., Chloramphenicol, etc.). Self-medication should be avoided as far as possible and in no case should you use steroid eye drops without proper medical advice.

What are the precautions one may observe to prevent conjunctivitis or its spread?

Some precautions may help in making the patient more comfortable during conjunctivitis and prevent its spread to others.

  • Discontinue contact lenses immediately
  • Do not share handkerchief, towels and other toiletries
  • Avoid close contact with people suffering from conjunctivitis (casual interaction does not lead to spread of infection)
  • Wash your hands immediately after taking care of a family member suffering from conjunctivitis
  • Avoid swimming if you have conjunctivitis
  • Avoid swimming during epidemics of conjunctivitis
  • Avoid exposure to dust pollution, chemicals, fumes and bright sunlight
  • Use sunglasses if have conjunctivitis to avoid discomfort from bright light and to avoid alarming people around you
  • Avoid crowded places during epidemics

What eye allergies are common during summer months?

One can get allergy to heat, dust & sun during the summer months. There could also be allergies to certain pollen or organic dust at the onset & end of summer season. Spring Catarrh or vernal conjunctivitis is a type of allergy seen in young boys most commonly during summer months.

What is the treatment of allergy?

The best form of treatment for allergy, if at all possible, is to identify & avoid causative agent or allergen. But in most cases it is either not possible to find out exact agent causing allergy or to completely avoid it. In these situations one needs to use anti-allergy medication in the form of anti-histaminics, mast-cell stabilizing drugs &, if allergy is severe, steroids.

What is Dry Eye & how to treat it?

Dry eye is a condition where the tear film of the eye is inadequate in quantity or quality resulting in an unstable tear film which breaks frequently giving rise to dry spots on cornea of the eye. These leads to symptoms of irritation, redness, soreness, dry feeling, gritty sensation and paradoxically reflex watering. These symptoms are worsening on exposure to dry cold air, hot wind and reduced blinking seen while working on computers, watching TV or prolonged reading.

Treatment is usually in the form of frequent instillation of lubricant or artificial tear eye drops. One should also avoid conditions that aggravate dry eye. Examination by an eye surgeon can help to rule out underlying treatable causes of dry eye.

What’s a stye? What causes it & what’s the treatment?

Syte is an infection of glands of eyelids which leads to painful and sometimes pus-filled swelling at eyelid margins.  It causes red painful swelling on the eyelids with the formation of pus points. The swelling may burst releasing pus and blood-stained discharge which brings relief.

Sytes are commonly caused by frequent rubbing of eyes with unwashed hands and by eye strain caused by reading or working on computers.

The treatment is in the form of oral antibiotics & pain-killers and instillation of antibiotic eye drops which should be used for 2-4 weeks to prevent a recurrence.

What is corneal ulcer?

Corneal ulcer is severe infection of the cornea (clear black part of the eye) which may result from trauma or be a complication of conjunctivitis or use of contaminated contact lenses. The infection can be bacterial, fungal or viral. It leads to severe pain, redness, watering, blurring of vision, photophobia and a yellowish-white spot on the cornea. Immediate help of an expert eye surgeon should be sought. If medical help is not close at hand, it is advisable to start frequent instillation of broad-spectrum antibiotic eye drops e.g., Chloramphenicol, etc.
