Refractive error and cataracts are two most common eye problems that we see, with refractive error starting to create problems from a very young age, and cataracts coming on after an age of around 60. Although this is not definite; refractive error may come in the late adult stage, and younger adults may get cataracts too. But, going with the general way things work, almost every individual who suffers from a refractive error in the teens or adulthood goes in for a Lasik surgery to get rid of his spectacles and contact lenses. Then, when he grows older, he starts suffering from cataracts, which is why he wishes to undergo a cataract surgery too. But here, the question that arises is whether he can undergo a cataract surgery after he has undergone a Lasik procedure. If you are one such confused individual, you are at the right place to clear off your doubt.



As we all shift from the four stages of lockdowns since March 25, 2020 towards a new phase of unlocking the country from today, it becomes even more dangerous to move around, as the spread of the Coronavirus will be on a high rise from now onwards. We thus need to be absolutely careful about how we move around, how we meet with the people around, and how we live our lives. One mistake, and we can’t even imagine where we may land up!



Squint is the condition of the eyes in which the muscles of the eye are weak, which is why the eyeball is forced to focus in a different direction, while the vision of the health eye is focused on a central straight path. Generally, squint is seen in only one eye of an individual. This means that one of the eyes performs absolutely fine, with the other eye being deviated from its normal position. This means that the affected eye will look upwards, downwards, inwards, or outwards, but not on the central focal path. And, it is only rare that both the eyes of an individual will suffer from the condition. Whatever the condition, and whether one or both eyes are affected, there is nothing to worry, as this problem is easily curable.



As parents, one is always concerned about the health of their children. And, with every child being a great deal surrounded and involved with digital gadgets like smartphones, laptops, and televisions today, one increased concern is about their eyes. With the increasing use of such digital screens and computer screens, we see a significant increase in eye discomfort and fatigue too. This makes it even more important for you as a parent, to take complete care of your child’s eyes. Here are some effective eye care tips that can help.



Squint, more commonly known as the misalignment of the eyes to the layman, is one of the most common eye disorders seen across the globe. It affects the coordination between both the eyes, which is necessary for achieving clear binocular vision. There are six muscles in each eye that maintains such coordination, by having both our eyes looking at the same object together, making our eyes centered. But, in squint, one or more of these muscles don’t work as required, thus having both eyes looking in different directions. either both the eyes could be disoriented from the center, or one may look straight, while the other may look elsewhere.



When your vision gets unclear, you may not be able to see things clearly. Then, you may say that your vision has become blurred. You will say you need to have your eyes checked to see where your eyes have gone wrong; and one of the most common outcomes of the problem would be that you would have a refractive error, which would be treated by prescribed eyeglasses. But, there would be times when you may feel that you are having a cloudy-like appearance in your eyes. Cloud-like formations would be blocking your vision. But, in such a situation, you shouldn’t say that you are having a blurry vision; instead, you must say that you are having a blurry vision. People generally use the words cloudy vision and blurry vision interchangeable, while in fact both the terms are actually different from each other.



The thought of any surgery can be intimidating; and when it is a surgery related to the eyes, it can be even more frightening. But, trust us, if you have your surgery done by a specialist, there should be nothing to worry about. If a professional is taking up the responsibility of performing a surgery on your eyes, you must trust that it is for your well-being, and that everything is being done after proper analysis to ensure that the surgery is in your favour.



Squint generally begins in childhood, which if treated quickly and early can eliminate or at least manage the condition. Thus, when squint is seen in adults, it should be understood that it is the result of progressive untreated squint from childhood. However, this is not always the case. There could be rare instances where the individual may not be having squint in childhood, but may have developed the condition in adulthood due to an eye injury or head trauma. Approximately 4% of adults today suffer from squint, most of them related to accidents, injuries, and medical illnesses.



Cataracts is a disorder that affects most of the elderly citizens in the world. And, while this is such a common disorder, there is no medication or eye drop that can treat the condition. The only guaranteed solution to cataracts is surgery, which involves the surgical removal of the cloudy natural lens of the eye; replacing it with an artificial transparent lens known as the intraocular lens, or IOL in short.



Vision is one of the most important things in our lives. None of us can imagine what we’ll go through if we lose our vision! And, for a good vision, we need healthy eyes. Obviously, vision deteriorates as we age, but we can always take certain steps to preserve our good vision for longer. There are many things that we can do such as exercising our eyes, not straining them for too long, and avoiding over-exposure to digital screens, but one very important thing that we have heard ever since our teachers taught us in school is that we need to eat healthy. While our teachers always told us to eat green leafy vegetables and carrots to help with good vision, there is actually a whole long list of foods that can do good for our eyes.
