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

Uncontrolled and sustained high blood sugar level can lead to diabetic retinopathy. So the doctor recommended a medically invasive treatment that consists of intraoccular neurotoxic and vasculo-occlusive drugs. This is a standard treatment, however there is a safer and effective alternative with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (hbot). If you log into our WhatsApp or search Google you will find more info about hbot and how it works for diabetic retinopathy. HBOT can halt and reverse diabetic retinopathy.

you may probably be needing a neurological examination . First thing, visit another eye clinic to get a second opinion. There may to leads from the eye exam if you ll be needing referral to a neurologist .

Hello doctor.
I know of someone close to me who has a problem of his eye. His both eyes have the same sharpness and clarity. His left eye the same and right eye the same. Both are same, until recently his right eye became blurry. You won't notice it until you close your left eye to know the right eye is blurry.
He said is like the brain choses the left eye to see and ignores the vision from the right eye. He researched and found out it is refractive anisometropia (amblyopia).
He does patching now (closing the left eye to see with the right eye) for like two to three hours everyday. Although, the right eye improved, like becoming less blurry, doctor, what other things can he still do apart from patching to make sure his right eye is exactly like his left, like how his eye was before. Thank you.

Ok, but if the professional knows what is going on, can the treatment he/she gives ensures that the eye returns back to normal?
Thank you doctor.

well, that depends on your definition of seriousness. if by serious, you are asking if he could go blind from amblyopia, assuming it's the case here, then no. but again an eye that is amblyopic could develop strabismus.

I'm 56. I'm having a whitish growth spreading from the edges in my eyes that's irritating and sometimes painful and causes headaches.

I have been to the hospital and eye drops were prescribed and used.

Operation was suggested as an option which I don't want to take.

Please which drug can I take to eliminate the unwanted growth.

Thanks for your kind support.

i presume the growth being described here to be pterygium. Sadly , they are no drops to remove the growth . Drugs are just to take care of the symptoms you experience when the growth is inflamed .

But doctor, does phone damage the eyes, I heard phones emit blue light which causes cataract. Cataract affects the eye lens. How can one prevent cataract.
Although I take yeast tablet and omega-3-fatty acids every day.
I am still very young. smiley

yes but there are blue cut lenses you could use . You could reduce your chances of developing cataracts by using sun shields with uv protection when outdoors , avoid harmful habits like smoking, eat healthy ; taking fruits and green leafy veggies . These would help you
