How do I know if I am suffering from any eye ailment?
We do not visit a doctor until we any disease hit us or we hit any injury. But in case of eyes, regular eye check-ups are must. Eyes are very sensitive part of our body and are prone to infections if proper care is not done. Any kind of persistent itching, burning sensation, redness or blurry vision is a clear indication of any eye infection. You can visit your doctor who will examine your eye for any infection or disease which needs appropriate treatment to be followed.
What Kind of disease can affect my eye-sight?
Any infection which is left untreated or is treated by overt-the-counter medicine may spread in the entire eye leading to major infection. Therefore, it is always advised to consult a doctor when any kind of itching or burning sensation does not go away. Other than deteriorating eye-sight, conjunctivitis and other seasonal eye infections, there are different eye problems which are quite severe and need surgical intervention as well. At Aakash, we not only offer effective consultancy but also treat different eye problems, like:
What is a good eye-sight?
We know numbers like +5 or -2, when we talk about eye-sight. An eye-specialist examines our eye and prescribes lenses in case our eye number has increased or decreased. Our eye power is usually measured with a Snellen chart which is uniform globally. A normal vision is 20/20.
When should I visit an eye specialist or an Ophthalmologist?
Not every problem related to eye is cured by eye drops. You must regularly get your eyes examined and should consult your doctor in case of any persistent itching, redness or pain in the eyes.
