Subconjunctival Haemorrhage – causes and treatment?
Subconjunctival Haemorrhage

Are you a lens user, or do you have hypertension? If yes, this blog is especially for you. We are introducing you to subconjunctival haemorrhage. This condition occurs when you have a broken blood vessel on the surface of the eye. Now, what is conjunctiva? You have a clear membrane in the eye that is small, and it covers the white part of the eye. Moreover, your eyes have lots of such membranes that can be damaged due to several reasons. Further, when these membranes break, your eyes turn red. 

Is subconjunctival haemorrhage serious?

In most cases, conjunctivitis doesn’t need treatment and heals on its own. But if the condition stays for a longer period of time, our specialists suggest that you must take expert help and identify the problem. Further, you should schedule proper check-ups, and necessary treatment should be taken. What should you do if you are affected by conjunctivitis? Keep reading to know more about this.

What is the most common cause of subconjunctival haemorrhage?

You must undergo a thorough examination to identify the exact cause of the condition. In most cases, it is due to lenses, trauma or heritable conditions. For instance, a quick rise in pressure can also rupture the membrane. Moreover, if you rub your eyes too hard, the membrane can break, leading to this condition. Most of the time, conjunctivitis starts with irritation in the eye leading to mild pain to severe pain in rare cases. 

What is the fastest way to get rid of a subconjunctival haemorrhage?

In general, there is no way to speed up the process. As mentioned above, you need to go through a thorough examination to identify the cause. Further, with self-care and medical care, you can reduce the effect of this condition. At home, begin with putting ice packs over your eyes to ease the swelling and discomfort. 

Prevention is always the best measure. If you frequently use contact lenses, make sure you disinfect them regularly. Always protect your eyes from any trauma or injuries. If you have any bleeding disorder, keep a thorough check on it. In most cases, a subconjunctival haemorrhage is not a serious issue, but our specialists say it can be serious depending upon the age. Moreover, in older people, this condition can lead to serious vascular disorders too. 

The next question you might have is, does this condition lead you to loss of vision? Well, in theory, it doesn’t. But, as we always say, neglecting an eye disorder is never a good option. So, if the condition lasts for long, say 2 to 3 weeks, and you face any vision problem, it is best to get expert help. To know more about the condition, book an appointment with our specialists. They will guide you through what needs to be done.

How do you know you have low vision?
How do you know you have low vision

Low vision is a condition in which you can see partially. Several factors cause low vision, and each factor leads to different types of visual disabilities. Especially as you age, the chances of being diagnosed with low vision increase. This is why we always urge you to make regular appointments with our eye specialists. In this blog, we are going to talk about various causes and symptoms of low vision.

Make a note that low vision is a condition. This means it could be caused by various diseases that you might have already heard of. Before we dive further into the blog, there are a few terms that you might need to know about. When people mention that they have a ‘20/20’ vision, it means that they can see things with the highest clarity without a need for external help. In this case, external help includes wearing either corrective glasses or lenses. 

What are the symptoms of low vision?

Low vision is not about being unable to see things clearly. It means that there are various other factors that interfere with any treatment to get a clear vision. There are quite a lot of cases where vision correction cannot be achieved even with corrective lenses. 

There are also a few cases where you might see dark spots in your vision. With time, these tend to grow in size and interfere with your vision. These spots might occur in the centre of your vision, or they might also begin at the corners and make their way to the centre. There are cases where the clarity of vision decreases, and the picture always appears hazy or blurry. In some cases, your eyes might not be able to perceive any light during the nighttime.

What are the causes of low vision?

Most eye issues are a result of low vision. This is why it is very important to keep your eyes in check regularly. For example, you might have already heard of Macular Degeneration. This is a condition that comes with age. As you age, your retina goes to regular wear and tear and starts to malfunction. Cataracts are also one of the most common causes of low vision. 

As mentioned before in the blog, clouding of eyesight is caused by Cataracts. In the same way, Glaucoma causes damage to the optic nerve due to high blood pressure. All these are causes of low vision. 

How to get diagnosed?

Always make sure to get proper and regular eye exams by specialists. By doing so, you can always be aware of the condition of your eyes. There are various tests that will detect the reason for your vision defects. 

There you go. Those are a few reasons and symptoms of low vision. As there are several reasons for low vision, we urge you to get your appointments on a regular basis. To book an appointment, click here. 

What Are Flashes And Floaters And Their Common Causes?
flashes and floaters

Whereas, if you experience them all the time and realise that they are increasing in number or size, that’s when you get your eyes checked. This is because floaters are one of the common symptoms of Retinal detachment. We will explain this further in the blog. Now let’s move on to what flashes are. Did you injure your eye? You might see little streaks and spots of bright light. This also is one of the symptoms of retinal detachment.

Have you ever looked at a blank wall or a clear blue sky and observed a few shapes floating in your vision? You might have also tried to blink your eyes to get rid of them, but they stay. We call them floaters. They are pretty common, and you need not worry if you see them once in a while.

What are the most common causes of flashes and floaters?

Well, one of the most common causes of flashes and floaters seem to be age. The retina slowly pulls back from its original position as you age, and this causes leaks in light information. If you’re young and experiencing floaters and flashes, it might be because your eye is injured. Check back on yourself if this is the case and consult with our specialists immediately. 

How do you stop floaters and flashes?

As mentioned earlier in the blog, if you see floaters once in a while in your vision, please know that this is quite common. So, give your eyes quality rest, and they’ll recover immediately. But, if you observe them all the time, we always recommend you consult our specialists. 

A few articles mention that floaters don’t need to be treated. While we stand with that opinion, if you experience frequent headaches because of floaters, it is recommended you should consult our specialists immediately. 

When to See an Eye Doctor?

Moving on to the severe cases of constantly experiencing floaters and flashes, there are several retinal surgeries. Most of them use lasers so that there’s minimal and some with almost no contact. So, you don’t have to worry about your safety. Not just that, quite a lot of retinal surgeries that we perform need less time to perform and have less recovery time. 

We hope you now have a brief idea of what floaters and flashes in your vision are. Are you above 50? Let our expert surgeons assess your eyes and provide you with just the right solution so that you can enjoy clear and worry-free vision. Book an appointment with us right away.

What are the vegetables that improve eyesight?

Veggies! Do you like them? Before you say no, let us just state the fact that vegetables are the best solution for a healthy vision. That is why in this blog we are covering a few vegetables that can help you improve your eye health. Also, we would like to debunk the myth that eating these vegetables cannot reverse the damage done to your eyesight. But, they will be extremely beneficial in preventing any further damages. 

You might ask, are these vegetables magical? And, the answer is, “absolutely not”. Most of the vegetables that you find in your backyard or in the market can improve your eye health. All you need to know is which ones should you choose and why. We hope that this blog creates a valuable change in your lifestyle. So, let’s dive deep into the topic. Also, keep a note of the vegetables and add them to your shopping list next time. 

Food that improves eye health without glasses

Leafy Greens simply are the best

We heard this since our childhood. Leafy greens do tons of good to our bodies. How, you ask? Leafy greens are packed with vitamins and antioxidants. These elements help prevent quite a few eye issues. The antioxidants in leafy greens strengthen the eye muscles thus preventing your eyes from weary issues such as Macular degeneration and Cataracts. Some of the best leafy greens that do good to your eyesight are Spinach, Broccoli, and Kale. These are common in supermarkets and you’ll find no trouble finding them packed for you. 

Make Carrots your best friends

Another phrase that we’ve heard since our childhood is- Carrots improve eyesight. Even though that statement is partially false, it did a lot of good. Carrots are high in Vitamin A, which plays a key role in vision. To explain it even further, Vitamin A helps the Retina in our eye to absorb light. So, the more light your retina absorbs, the clearer and better the image you see. 

Sweet potatoes are your sweetest partners

Sweet potatoes are rich in Beta Carotene. In addition to that, they also carry loads of Vitamin E. Both these elements improves the range of stress your eyes can withstand. This is why sweet potatoes are the best vegetables for the modern world. As you stare long hours into a screen every day, consuming sweet potatoes in your diet will help your eyes prevent damage from stress. 

Include Legumes in your diet

Legumes hold tons of Zinc. Also, you can easily replace meat with Legumes too. That’s because of how much amount of protein they contain. On top of that, legumes have no fat content and high fibre content. All these factors make them the healthiest additions to your diet. 

There you go. Those are a few vegetables that you should start including in your diet. The vegetables that we listed above are extremely easy to find in any market around you. We hope that this blog helps you better understand the value of vegetables. If you find any irregularities in your eyesight, please contact our specialists right away. We will get your eyes tested and provide you with the best solution possible. 

For how long does the benefits of LASIK surgery last?
Lasik surgery
Lasik surgery

The word LASIK isn’t an unheard one. At least today, you see and hear the word everywhere. And, it’s all for good reasons. The wave of tech advancements that LASIK surgery created is phenomenal. Let us give you the right meaning of LASIK once again. LASIK is the name of a vision correction surgery that reshapes the corneal tissues using Laser technology. And, it is an obvious question that, will the surgery last forever? Will LASIK surgery offer you a lifetime of clear and crisp vision? 

It is more than okay to have these questions pop up in your mind, and in fact, these questions are the limiting factor in choosing surgery. So, we will provide you with the answers to these questions in this blog. 

Will laser eye surgery last forever?

Theoretically, yes! On paper, LASIK is a surgery that provides clear vision forever. But, we live in a world of practicality, so we will say that it depends. The lasting effectiveness of LASIK surgery depends on various factors. To make it easier for you to understand, let us explain the basic procedure of LASIK. As explained earlier, LASIK uses a laser to reshape the elements of our eye. In this process, the specialists make very tiny cuts to the corneal layer to fix how it refracts the light. Thus, the image becomes clearer. It is natural that our body goes through changes as time goes by. And, these changes include eyes too. So, there is a chance that the cornea might deform again.

How long do the benefits of LASIK surgery last?

Again, theoretically, LASIK can last forever. But, depending on various factors, and to give a number, LASIK’s benefits can easily last for up to 20 years. Since eyes are sensitive, the factors can range from age to medical conditions. The underlying truth of any surgery is that surgeries can only fix the problems that we already have. But, do not prevent us from facing the problems again. 

Can I get LASIK again after 10 years?

LASIK surgery is one of the safest surgeries today. The success rate of this surgery has set new standards of safety. Since there is no physical intervention, the process is absolutely safe. With that being said, the side effects of this surgery are almost negligible. As mentioned above, the natural course of the human body growth makes it deformed gradually. With that being said, in most cases, there will not be a need to repeat the surgery. But, if you consult our doctors for any discomfort in your eyesight after getting the surgery done, your eyes will then be tested for any irregularities. Based on the results, the doctors might suggest an enhancement surgery too. 

We hope this blog clears most of your questions regarding LASIK surgery. If you have any further queries, please feel free to connect with our Eye specialists, and they will always be available to guide you through the process.

Lasik Surgery – how can it be customised?
lasik eye surgery

LASIK eye surgery is one of the most successful surgeries and helped millions of people. As the name suggests, LASIK eye surgery uses a laser to correct vision. A few patterns in eye issues deform the corneal layer of your eye. This change in the corneal layer changes how our brain perceives the image from the eyes. Thus, the image looks blurry. Glasses are one of the most common solutions to see clearly. But, we all know that glasses are a burden to carry around and maintain. 

This is where LASIK surgery comes in handy. LASIK surgery enables us to correct your eyesight with a simple procedure. Also, this surgery is one of the most efficient vision correction methods because of its revolutionary recovery time. As this surgery uses laser technology, you do not get an incision in the eye, and drastically reduces the recovery time compared to other methods. 

Custom LASIK Eye Surgery 

When we say LASIK surgery, it’s an umbrella of surgeries that use laser technology. So, multiple surgeries come under LASIK. But, worry not. Our specialists will brief you on all the methods before you decide. Even before that, we will test your eyes for the compatibility of this surgery, and only based on the results will we suggest the type of surgery. In a few cases, we will also suggest not going through with LASIK surgery. For instance, when the corneal layer is too thin. 

Although conventional LASIK surgery is your safest bet, you can choose the custom LASIK eye surgery too. The reasons vary from the medical results from the tests and personal needs. Regarding medical reasons, if you have a larger pupil size or your eyes have lower or higher aberrations. The personal needs include getting a service modified to your eyes perfectly. Doing this is a sure way to get a vision that’s even better than 20/20. Custom LASIK eye surgery is a sure way to get the best vision without eyeglasses.

Even though custom LASIK seems like the better option, we only suggest this to people with extreme or unusual eye conditions. We, at Sharat Maxivision, have treated many and reshaped their eyesight.

5 easy & effective tips to avoid Eye Infections
eye infections treatment

The monsoon is almost over, and we are getting ready to welcome winter. There is a common misconception in the public that the rate of infections decreases as the monsoon ends. But the fact is that only the spread of infections might reduce, but not the causes of infections. The rules that cause eye infections remain the same irrespective of the season. Based on that, we are here to educate you with five easy tips that you can use to avoid Eye Infections. 

As an eye care brand, we love to offer you tips on avoiding infections. But, that does not imply that these tips apply to all conditions. So, before you read through the blog, please visit us if you observe any discomfort in your eye. So, we can adequately assess and diagnose the issue in your eyes. 

Avoid Eye Infections – Wash your hands!

We have seen a complete Pandemic with this slogan being applied everywhere we go. Keeping our hands clean is one of the best ways to prevent eye infections and a pandemic. Although taken for granted, our hands are the most used part of our body. So, they come in contact with various items throughout the day, and it’s our responsibility to keep them clean at all times. So, let’s remember the 20-second rule again while washing your hands. 

Avoid touching your eyes

Yes, we suggested above that you have to wash your hands. But, please don’t be imagine that it will be enough to prevent infections. The eyes are sensitive and highly reactive organs of our body. Since our hands always carry infections, you should avoid touching your eyes frequently. 

Avoid Eye Infections – Live mold-free

Mold originates in damp and dirty places. You have to be careful about the surroundings you live in. If it’s a damp area, check all the corners of your home and look for dampness on the walls. Dampness leads to fungi problems. It will lead to severe eye infections.

Safety comes first

One of the common ways of getting infected is through an injury. Whenever the surface of the eye is damaged, it easily catches infections. And the presence of injury makes the recovery process harder than usual. To avoid this from happening, you should always wear protective gear to your eyes while doing extreme activities. 

Give Contacts a break

Contact lenses sure are an incredible element of our lifestyles. But, since contact lenses are to be removed and put on every day, they increase the risk of eye infection. Please make sure you clean your contact lenses properly every day. Even better yet, take a break from contact lenses for a while.

There you go. 5 tips on how to avoid eye infections. As we mentioned earlier in the blog, please book an appointment if you observe any discomfort in your eyes. We will provide you with the best solution possible.

Eye specialists might suggest Cataract surgery if you suffer from cloudy or blurred vision. As cataracts gradually grow, you will face dim or even doubled vision when you look at things with cataracts. These problems can make it hard to read, work on a computer, and do anything else that calls for clear eyesight. 

When should you opt for cataract surgery?

  1. Cloudy vision
  2. Sensitivity towards light 
  3. Seeing a halo around lights 
  4. Sudden nearsightedness 
  5. Poor night vision 
  6. Changes in perception of colour 

What will you gain from cataract surgery? 

One of the best things after this surgery is that it enables you to see clearly. Use this time to relax and let your body recover. Like any surgical procedure, there is a recovery period after having Cataract surgery. With our advanced equipment and procedures, the recovery time is shorter.

Instructions after the surgery from eye specialists in Warangal 

Our doctors will always be open to queries after the surgery. However, there are a few activities you should avoid post-surgery:

  2. Avoid bending over 
  3. Avoid splashing water directly into your eyes
  4. No physical activities during the recovery phase

What To Do To Avoid Eye Infections?

eye infection treatment

Even though we repeat this in every blog we write, there’s no other way of saying this. The eyes are the most sensitive and essential part of our body, and what makes them so sensitive is also the reason why they are prone to infections. So, in this blog, we try to cover as many tips as we can to educate you on how to avoid eye infections.

Eye infections are common, but that doesn’t mean they can be taken lightly. Even though they seem to go away in a couple of days or weeks, they also have the ability to damage your eyesight. So, to prevent this from happening, read this blog and get to know what to do when you face the issue of an eye infection. 

What are the symptoms of eye infections?

In most cases, the symptoms of eye infections are similar. They start with eye dripping, swelling, and itching. While these are common symptoms, we request you not to take these symptoms for granted. In a few cases, these minor symptoms could lead to no-return damages. Some of the common names of eye infections are Conjunctivitis and Dry eyes. Eye infections could be caused due to Viral, Fungal, or Bacterial elements. 

One of the greater risks of infections is that they spread. Especially in cold weather conditions, human bodies are prone to get infected. Another risk is their ability to seep into deeper layers. Since eyes are sensitive, infections find it easy to make their way into deeper layers like the Cornea. Now that you’re aware of what eye infections could do let’s move into how to avoid them. 

As a matter of fact, the following tips are quite easy for us to mention, while it is definitely challenging to keep doing these every day. So, let’s make a habit of following these below tips and save our eyes from damage. 

Hands carry it all!

We mean, all! From bacteria to dirt, hands carry them all. Fun fact, there are more types of bacteria on the palm of your hand than on a clean bathroom floor. We hope this fact makes a significant impact on keeping your hands out of your face. Since it is challenging to keep our hands away from our face, make an alternative habit of keeping them clean at all times, reducing the chances of catching eye infections. 

Smoking is strict No No

One puff is enough to damage your eyesight permanently. So, why take the risk? Not just tobacco, but also be aware of any chemical fumes around the place of your work and home. If you feel any discomfort in your eyes after coming in touch with smoke, contact our specialists immediately. 

Keep Contacts on the table

Follow this strictly every night before going to bed. Remove your contacts. Not just that, make a habit of cleaning them before packing. It will ensure that your lenses and the box remain infection-free. Also, they’ll be ready to go the next time you need them. 

These are only a few habits that we list here to educate you on how to avoid eye infections. Our specialists are always ready to address all your eye-related concerns. However, take care of yourself and your eyes.

Red Eyes: Causes and Cure
Red Eye Symptoms

‘Red-eyes’ is a particular condition that you’ve probably had at least once in your life.

Let’s find out the answers related to red eyes and red-eye treatment in this blog and be aware of what our eyes are going through. 

When the blood vessels on the white or pale surface of the eye become enlarged, it is known as “Redeye”. It can be accompanied by other unpleasant red eye symptoms such as itching, discomfort, or blurred vision. Red eyes can be a sign of minor irritation or a severe medical condition, such as an infection. 

Red eyes can also occur without any additional symptoms such as pain or irritation in the eyes. As it turns out, red eyes could stem from a variety of illnesses and issues. The following are the most common of them

1.Allergic reaction – 

Many of us get red eyes due to allergies that make the eyes feel stuffy and itchy. Pollen, chemicals, certain foods, contact lens solutions, and several other things can induce an allergic effect resulting in red eyes. For red-eye treatments, it is always safer to consult your ophthalmologist as soon as possible. 

2. Dry eyes – 

Your tears may not have the texture that they should. They could evaporate quickly. Your eye may also be unable to produce tears at all. ‘Dry eye’ is the medical term for such a condition. It can result in pain, corneal ulcers, and, in rare cases, visual loss.

3. Other dry eye symptoms include

  • A gritty sensation
  • A burning sensation
  • Blurry vision
  • Droopy eyelids
  • The inability to cry
  • A stringy discharge
  • Signs of eye tiredness.
  • Discomfort due to contact lenses

4. Strain in the eyes

Excessive computer use can cause eye strain, ultimately leading to red eyes. Staring at a computer screen for an extended period of time can make your eyes feel tired and cause burning and itching. We tend to blink less frequently while staring at computer screens, which could be one cause of computer eye syndrome. It’s an excellent exercise to take frequent breaks and to make an attempt to blink more frequently.

5. Pinkeye – 

Pinkeye, also known as conjunctivitis, is an inflammation of the lining of your eyelid and the white of your eye. A virus or bacteria can cause it. It’s prevalent, especially for children, and could also be highly contagious. If you suspect you have pink eyes, see your doctor as soon as possible, wash your hands frequently, and avoid rubbing your eyes.

6. Broken blood vessels – 

When small blood vessels underneath your eye break, blood starts to accumulate in your eye, turning the white of your eye red. A powerful sneeze, heavy lifting, hard vomiting, or wiping your eye too hard can all trigger this condition.

7. Red-eye treatments –

Red eyes can appear suddenly or gradually. You should see a doctor if the redness does not go away and is accompanied by other symptoms. A doctor can assist you in determining the source of your red eyes symptoms. An ophthalmologist is best suited for red eye treatment.
