  • There are many bad effects of squinting. First of all, it is easy to recognize it if two eyes are not in the same vision axis, which will definitely impact you looking. I don't what others think. I have a brother who has squinted eyes too. I always feel lost which direction he is looking at. And this makes him hard to find a girlfriend. Besides, there are many negative effects far more serious than this. When one eye is deviating, the other eye needs to take up nearly all the vision function responsibility. The normal eye becomes the dominate eye. Gradually, the squinting eye will lose its function ability, from impaired functionally to totally blindness. And this is hard to discover. It is a slow process and unless the people close the normal eye and use the deviate one to see. Yet there are some ways to prevent it, but you need correct diagnosis and professional support from an oculist. My suggestion is going to hospital at the earliest. Wish you be well soon.

  • Yes, salmon oil could definitely help dry eyes. Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty, which is very helpful to human brain and eyes. Have more food rich in omega-3 fatty can effectively help moisturize your skin and eyes. It doesn't only exist in salmon. You can find it in seaweed and many other deep-sea fish. Actually the most direct way is to drink enough water every day. Apply warm compress which can help production of tear film. If the air is too dry, a humidifier is recommended.

  • It is reasonable that the light colored eyes are more sensitive to the sunlight because of the principles of optics. As we know, the dark color will absorb the sunlight. Thus, the light colored eyes will be more sensitive to the sunlight. However, there are many reasons causing the difference of the sensitive degree of the eyes to lights, like the pupil size, the iris problem and so on. Eyes is a can sense light organ. The most simple eyes structure can detect surrounding environment of light and shade. More complex eyes structure can provide visual compound eye usually in arthropod which found that it often have a lot of simple small eye surface composition. It can produce an image in many vertebrates and some software animals. The eyes through the light projection light are sensitive to retinal imaging. The light is accepted and translated into a signal which travels through the optic nerve to the brain. Usually the eyes are spherical, full of transparent gelatinous material. It can control the amount of the lights coming into.

  • Yes, certain scleritises come and go and can cure itself without any treatment. This kind of scleritis is called simple episcleritis whose infection occurs to the outer layer of sclera. The symptoms of this kind of scleritis include sting, burning and discomfort in sclera. In rare cases, the patient also suffers from temporary myopia and miosis. Other scleritises have more symptoms like sensitivity to light, eye redness, pain, tearing and tenderness. If your symptoms are serious and don't go away themselves, you have to go to see a doctor.

  • yes. It is. Even though garlic can prevent a lot of disease, but it is not good to our eyes if you have too much garlic. That 's because garlic is spicy, it is not good to our liver, and liver is so connected to our eyes. So it is not good to our eyes. Garlic is a good food, but don't eat too much.

  • I saw tiny black dots when my floater showed up initially. They have left but the large one remained. I think it is just microscopic bits of the protein the floaters are made of.

  • After running for a long time, the blood going to your legs and not other parts of your body. Maybe this will cause your feel vision blur. I also often feel vision blur while in intensive exercise. But i just feel vision blur during the exercise not after the exercise. That just only last for a few seconds and it will recover clear vision again. And i think maybe it is caused by body fatigues. I don't think it is a big problems.

  • Yes, it is like miracle! I had severe dry eye problem, so severe that it resulted in corneal erosion. And it used to be so bad that when I wake up in the morning, the dry upper lid used to peal off the surface of cornea and result in erosion. And I was using ointment in the eye at night and eye drops (artificial tears) every two hours during day. Despite this, it became so bad, that every morning, I had sharp piercing pain of erosion and blurred vision. Then, I was advised to use Rose water by a friend. I bought Rose water of Divya pharmacy. Before I slept, I put rose water on clean cotton and put it on my eyes. It was cool and soothing. It is like miracle, I never had another erosion and could stop using eye drops within one week. All those redness, inflammation and irritation in the eyes is gone. Only take care that, the cotton you use once, throw it. Each time, use fresh cotton.

  • Maybe it is difficult to believe that anxiety can cause eye problems, but doctors have already found some well-known eye issues related with anxiety. When we suffer from intense anxiety, our pupils dilate, this may cause light sensitivity and eye aches. And the tightening of the muscles in our face caused by anxiety may constrict the blood vessels to our eyes and cause eye pain, aches, or blurred vision.

  • Frankly speaking, there is no any contact lenses suitable for swimming. Because of contact lenses are not designed to get wet. Otherwise, they are porous and can pick up chemicals and bacteria from swimming pool and sea water to enter the lenses and irritate the eyes. Another problem with swimming in contact lenses is inconvenience. Due to they can move, fall out and be aware of not to get them wet. It would make you feel anxiety and lost fun when swimming.
