lolz sorry about that. I know the economy is biting hard but clinics are businesses as well and prevailing economic circumstances would also reflect on its running cost and apparently that of its goods and services.

Doc, my eye has been scratching me for three years now. Can it be an infection around the eye?

Am a short sighted person, and it didn't start now, i noticed it when i was still a teenager..
In my secondary school days i always stay at the front row to be able to see the board properly.
I always feel bad when ever i can't recognize sm1 when they are not too far away, and not until when they are closer. And i think its getting worse.
Please doctors in the house, is there any solution to this predicament?? It makes me feel depressed when ever i can't read from the televion or had to bring my phone closer to my face.

Some people are telling me to go and run a test in the lab so that they can prescribe a glass or lense for me. But i don't want to use glasses as it will only make it get worse. There are also some supplements that i have come across but i don't knw how true is it.

no drug or supplement can help you here. You are most likely having a refractive errorand would be needing glasses. U could also opt for contact lenses if your eye doc deems u suitable fr it after examination

glasses comprises the lense and the frame. The frame is the body holding the lenses. The lenses is the part you look through to see . The frame is is sent to the optical lab for them to fix the lenses .talking about contact lenses , which are lenses fixed directly on the eye ball ( usually less obvious ) unlike in glasses ( which do not make direct contact with the eyeball) where everyone knows you are wearing something on your face

these are symptoms usually associated with uncorrected refractive error. You have to see an eye Dr. You ll most likely be needing corrective lenses

Hello Doc,
I have been a short sighted person. When I was in school I used to sit on the front row inorder to see the board clearly. I cannot identity people from afar until they get closer to me. When i got to the University I got a glasses and my vision improved. As I begin using computer I noticed that I always observe some object on my vision, when I try to concentrate on the object, they tend to drift away. Some of the objects are inform of rings and others like Lines. But if I put on my glasses the object interference with my vision reduces.
I check it up on Google, I found out it is called floaters. Please doc, does these floaters have negative effect on my sight?

floaters could be indicative of something serious and needing attention but not in all cases . There's actually no satisfying treatment for floaters. you just have to learn to ignore them. Nevertheless, you should go for an eye exam to ascertain there's nothing more to the floaters

I am an Eye doctor, I discovered through clinical experience that most Patients don't really know about some basic things and problems affecting the eyesn and these has led to simple eye problems being seen as complicated and frightening to most patients and they don't really know how to go about it. There are some eye problems that are hereditary,which requires normal routine eye examinations but due to ignorance most patients tend to lose their sight to eye problems that could have been prevented. I want to use this opportunity to enlighten us and provide solutions to problems affecting the eyes,in line with WHO Vision 2020-Right to sight for all, so all questions concerning the eyes are welcomed
Good day doc. My mum is having issues with her sight. We visited an eye doc and after examining and scan, they said her sugar and bp has not been properly controlled over time hence the sight challenges. She was asked to take injection in the eyes. Now she is scared and has refused to take this injection. Pls doctor, what are the alternative ways to treat this as her sight is still deteriorating. Thank you sir

she has probably developed a diabetic retinopathy . She has to stick to the docs recommendation else she could go blind. It isn't what should be taken lightly . The earlier the better for her .

it depends on the number of muscles they are resecting. Make your Budget about 300k to 500k .

management depends on the cause. Take him to an eye clinic for evaluation first
