  • Usually, astigmatism will not cause droopy eyelid. Actually it is one of the causes of astigmatism. Droopy eyelid (it is also called ptosis or blepharoptosis) is a kind of condition in which the position of the upper lid is abnormally low. It can be divided into acquired ptosis and congenital ptosis while the former is more common. The Acquired ptosis is caused by the weakness or degeneration of the muscles that elevates the eyelids. The congenital ptosis is in-born due to the underdevelopment of levators. There are various causes of acquired ptosis, such as trauma in the muscles, aging. Some kinds of surgeries can result in ptosis. Besides, eye tumors, neurological disorders or some systematic diseases are the possible causes of droopy eyes. If the ptosis is mild, no treatment is needed. If it is severe, blepharoplasty surgery is necessary.

  • It seems that the goggles your father gave you don't suit you very much and you just have uncomfortable feelings. So, the first things you should do is to adjust the ribbon of the goggle which produces pressure around your head. Perhaps the ribbon is too long, so you can just adjust it to the most suitable condition. If this doesn't work, I suggest you buy a new one, but be sure that you try them on before you do a deal with the merchant, lest it should not fit you.

  • oversized sunglasses continues to be fashionable for women in this summer. Cat eye sunglasses are also fashionable for women in this summer. Sunglasses in colorful heart or oval shapes are one of the most fashionable sunglasses for women in this summer, too.

  • I never wear torics contact lenses. But my one of my friend has worn such contacts. He bought torics contact lenses according to your prescription, and the torics contact lenses give him comfortable wearing. Now, he have been wearing the contact lenses for years. But you always keep your eyes are moist because eye drys may cause the contacts slight off the proper places that cause you vision blur.

  • Yes, it is normal to have the double vision after the prk surgery. Because of the rise and down of the eye pressure, the vision will be a little blurry after the prk surgery. You may need to wait for a week to get the basic recovery. Then about a month, you will get the full recovery. During this time, you should protect your eyes carefully.

  • You are a kind person. You want to make contributions to the society even after death. I highly appreciate your spirit. But you must consult the doctors for more information about donating. Because I heard that some organs can be reused within several hours after the death. And the donator must apply for the donation by themselves. You should sign some documents too. Maybe you can find a suitable donator for your friend in the process of knowing these procedures. Hope your friend will recover soon!

  • The quite painful eyes may be caused by the jaundice. There may be other side effects of jaundice. Jaundice is also commonly known as yellow disease. Simply speaking, it is a kind of skin mucous membrane because of elevated serum bilirubin and sclera. The yellowing signs and symptoms of some liver disease often cause jaundice symptoms of gallbladder disease and diseases of the blood normally. Usually the blood bilirubin concentration is higher than 2 to 3 mg/dL which is the normal ones. These parts will appear to the naked eye discernible color. The skin organizations like the yellow dye, sclera jaundice, urine phlegm tears and sweat are yellow dye. The eyes will get affected to some degree. The saliva generally does not change color. In addition, the gastrointestinal symptoms often have nausea and vomiting diarrhea. What is worse, it could also cause the constipation, abdominal distension, abdominal pain loss of appetite and other symptoms. You should let your mother take the medical treatment to cure the jaundice. About the eyes, she should have the good rest and use the eye drops to moisture the eyes.

  • Generally eye inflammation can be caused by germ, virus, stimulation, injury or certain kinds of eye diseases. If you don't know what the reason is, try first to use ophthalmic saline solution, which is better than eye drops on the first stage. If the symptom couldn't be relieved, you'd better go for the eye doctor and find out what caused the inflammation. Of course the prevention is most important. Examine yourself on your lifestyle. Do you often rub eyes or even with unwashed hands? Do you often renew towels? Stimulating food should be kept off, and eat more fresh vegetables and soybean products. Have a 10 min's rest every 40min when looking at the silver screen. And often do eye exercises.

  • Well, yes, corneal abrasion is kind of dangerous to many people, for it can also lead to some serious eye diseases, such as the pink eyes, even dry eyes. But in my opinion, it is not possible to have blindness because of corneal abrasion. So you do not need to be worried about it. By the way, to treat it, you can just have some eye drops in a long term, it can relieve the situation. Also, putting some eye bags under your eyes will be effective too, for corneal abrasion can be caused by eye infection. Anyway, just be careful about it.

  • The doctor will tell you when you should quite smoking and drinking before a cataract surgery. Usually it is two weeks. Both smoking and drinking are bad for our eyes. Why not try to quite them forever. It will take two to three weeks for the eyes to recover after the surgery. But it depends because different people have different health conditions. Some will recover quicker but some slower. I suggest you to quite smoking and drinking for at least 2 weeks.
