  • Laser eye surgery is not recommended for teenagers. The FDA strictly prohibits LASIK surgery for those who are not yet 18 years of age. Most reputable eye surgeons will not perform LASIK on a young person until at least the age of 20.Our eyes continue to change during the teenage years, with vision finally stabilizing in our 20s.Because LASIK permanently alters the shape of the cornea, it is far too risky to perform LASIK on a cornea that is still changing in shape and size. If LASIK were to be performed on a teenager, the procedure would probably have to be repeated when he or she reached early adulthood. Once old enough for LASIK, surgeons will make certain of two things: A LASIK candidate should have no pre-existing corneal eye disease and should have a stable prescription for at least a year.

  • I heard that warm compress can help cure a stye. The painful swelling caused by a stye is very boring. And sometimes a stye can affect our vision. If we make pus in the stye come out, the symptoms may abate more quickly. Warm compress can cause the stye to release the pus. You can dip a clean towel in hot water. And then wring it until it won't drop. You can hold the hot towel on your eyes for several minutes and reapply it until the pus won't come out. Hope this helped!

  • Well, as far as I know, your problems don't seem to be that serious because they are just common symptoms from catching a cold I suppose. Generally speaking,catching a cold could lead to such symptoms like watery eyes and burning eyes. Speaking of how to treat it, I advise that you get some pills and drink plenty of hot water. Do not rely on eye drops, maybe a few days later you will be recovered.

  • As we all know that prolonged use of computer will result in computer vision syndrome. Although CVS is not dangerous,we still need to take protective precaution while using computer. Adding tints on computer lenses is highly recommended. Anti-glare coating will make a reduction in the eyestrain. Moreover,it will help dull the brightness of your screen.

  • If you have red eyes, you should stop wear contacts cuz they can make your eyes get infected easily. It is better for you to check with your eye doctor for solution

  • Yes, I once have the high eye pressure during my first time to take the plane. It feels like the eyeballs will go out. The temperature at the eyes is high which will not feel comfortable. It is said that the eyes infection caused by the wearing of the contact lenses by mistake will cause the high eye pressure, too. Eyes are the important part of the body. You should take care of it carefully.

  • Most eye diseases can be caused by unhealthy diet, lack of excercise and excessive work. Overall health also contributes a lot to eye health.

  • Of course you can' t. Actually, you will have a lot of things to pay attention to after your double eyelid surgery. First of all, you should rest as much as you can because your eyes really need a good relaxation. You know, after such kind of surgery, your eyelids will get swollen soon, so you need to give your eyelids a cold compress before you sleep every day. It is good for relieving your inflammation and preventing the infection. Don' t try to use your eyes to work, it will even be too difficult for you to open eyes wide. I have a friend who had this surgery before, and it almost took her two months to recover. Anyway, you should not wear contacts after that surgery at least for one month.
