Patients Stories


The eyes are vital organs of the body. It is essential to take good care of your eyes. Some measures that help maintain ocular health are:

  • Eating a diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables, and fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids (tuna or salmon)
  • Maintaining a healthy weight is important as obesity increases the risk of diabetes, which may affect the eyes
  • Regular exercise helps in managing high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity. If not managed properly, these diseases harm eye health.
  • Wearing sunglasses when going out is important as solar exposure adversely affects the eye health.
  • Avoiding smoking as it increases the risk of cataract and macular degeneration
  • Taking adequate measures to reduce infections due to contact lenses
  • Going for regular eye exams.
  • Providing adequate rest to eyes if you are spending significant time on the computer

Congenital conditions are present in patients from birth. Some of the congenital disorders involving the eyes are:

  • Hypertelorism involves an excessive gap between the pupils of both eyes.
  • Patients with microphthalmia have small eye globes in one or both eyes.
  • Anophthalmia is a condition in which the eye globe is entirely absent.
  • A cataract may be present at birth in some infants.

The symptoms of eye disease depend upon the part of the eye affected by the disease. Conjunctivitis causes red eyes, itching, and teary eyes. Cataract and nystagmus may reduce night vision. Headache is a symptom of photokeratitis, refractive error, and angle-closure glaucoma. Corneal abrasion, strabismus, cataract, and keratoconus cause light sensitivity. Floaters may occur because of diabetic retinopathy, a detached retina, ocular lymphoma, or posterior vitreous detachment.

  • Cataract: In normal eyes, the lens of the eyes is completely transparent and assists in clear vision. However, the protein of the lens degenerates as the person ages, resulting in a cloudy lens, known as cataract.
  • Retinal detachment: Retinal detachment is an emergency and vision-threatening condition that involves the detachment of the retina from the underlying layer of blood vessels.
  • Diabetic retinopathy: Poorly controlled diabetes may damage the blood vessels of the retina. It results in blurred vision, floaters, and difficulty in differentiating colors.
