KERATOCONUS TREATMENT IN HOMOEOPATHY BY Dr Anmol Arora MD ( Hom )

Keratoconus is a progressive condition affecting the cornea of the eye. The cornea is the clear window at the front of the eye. It is a curved structure. The precise shape of the curve allows it to act as a lens, projecting an image into the eye. The cornea is made up of bundles of protein called ‘collagen’. These bundles are normally held tightly together by chemical links between the collagen strands. This ensures that the shape of the cornea is constant. In the keratoconic cornea the normal chemical links between collagen strands are deficient, causing the cornea to be unusually elastic. The pressure inside the eye then pushes the cornea into a distorted, conical shape. This spoils the quality of the image projected into the eye, and the vision becomes progressively blurred.

How is keratoconus treated?

Glasses may be sufficient in the early stages of keratoconus, but contact lenses are needed when the cornea becomes so misshapen that glasses are no longer effective in correcting vision. Although soft contact lenses can sometimes be used, contact lenses for keratoconus are usually ‘hard’ gas-permeable lenses. Gas-permeable hard lenses are not always comfortable and may only be worn for a limited number of hours each day, but without them the vision is very blurred.

In some cases, the corneal shape becomes too distorted even for contact lenses to help. Also, scarring may develop, causing vision to become clouded. At this stage, a corneal transplant is usually needed. Corneal transplantation is quite major surgery and carries significant risks.

The transplant stops the keratoconus progressing and provides a clear window into the eye. However, the shape of the cornea is usually far from perfect. Some people will see adequately with glasses after corneal transplantation, but most will still need contact lenses to see well.

Corneal transplants do not last forever and may have to be repeated every fifteen years or so.

C3-R though another non-surgical keratoconus treatment method that can stop keratoconus from progressing to the stage where contact lenses or corneal transplantation becomes necessary but some time even found fruitless .

Homoeopathic Treatment

Though considered as last resort but having very effective treatment , Remedies being mentioned by the stalwarts years ago for distorted cornea has found to be promising for keratoconus . Pulsatila along with Eupharasia eye drop found very usefull . For consultation kindly contact at +91-9810097591.

Stye ( Hordeolum); Article By Dr Anmol Arora

Most bumps on the eyelid are styes. A stye is an inflamed oil gland on the edge of your eyelid, where the lash meets the lid. It appears as a red, swollen bump that looks like a pimple. It is tender, especially to the touch.

Stye

Causes, incidence, and risk factors

A stye is caused by bacteria from the skin that get into the oil glands in the eyelids that provide lubrication to the tear film. Styes are similar to common acne pimples that occur elsewhere on the skin. You may have more than one stye at the same time.

Styes usually develop over a few days and may drain and heal on their own. A stye can become a chalazion — this is when an inflamed oil gland becomes fully blocked. If a chalazion gets large enough, it can cause trouble with your vision.

Other possible eyelid bumps include:

  • Xanthelasma — raised yellow patches on your eyelids that can happen with age. These are harmless, although they are occasionally a sign of high cholesterol.
  • Papillomas — pink or skin-colored bumps. They are harmless, but can slowly grow, affect your vision, or bother you for cosmetic reasons. If so, they can be surgically removed.
  • Cysts — small fluid-filled sacs that can affect your vision.

Symptoms

In addition to the red, swollen bump, other possible symptoms include:

Signs and tests

A doctor can diagnose a stye just by looking at it. Special tests are usually not necessary.

Treatment

  • Styes and chalazions can be treated by applying warm compresses. Apply for 10 minutes. Do this four times a day.
  • Do NOT attempt to squeeze a stye or any other type of eyelid bump. Let it drain on its own.
  • Some large styes need to be lanced to drain the infection.

Expectations (prognosis)

Styes often get better on their own. However, they may recur. The outcome is generally excellent with simple treatment.

Complications

  • Recurrence of a stye
  • Spread of infection to other eyelash follicles
  • Spread of infection to the tissue of the eyelid (eyelid cellulitis)

Prevention

Always wash your hands thoroughly before touching the skin around your eye. If you are susceptible to styes, it may help to carefully clean off excess oils from the edges of your lids.

Treatment ( Homoeopathic ) Homoeopathy has wide range of medication for the treatment of stye , Staphisagria , Pulsatilla ,Lappa are few of the well proven medicines for stye.
