This World Sight Day, Sharp Sight focuses on educating people about taking care of their eyes and prevention of blindness due to serious eye ailments. In the last few years due to the impact of excessive screen time, there has been a spurt in the patients and children coming with decrease in vision due to refractive errors, dry eyes and computer vision syndrome. We advise people to take regular breaks when they are in front of a screen. Remember the 20-20-20 rule. Look away from your screen every 20 minutes by focusing on something 20 feet away for at least 20 seconds. Also, blinking often helps in lubricating the eyes naturally and prevents them from drying out.

If you are feeling pain in the eyes or the vision is becoming blurred, you need to get a comprehensive eye examination soon. This can be due to various conditions like cataract, glaucoma or retinal ailments that require immediate attention. If you are suffering from diabetes or taking pills to control blood pressure, an annual eye examination is a must. Children going to schools and those who have long screen hours should also get periodical examinations done.

Advances in treatment includes the use of new technologies like Femtolaser assisted cataract surgery with the use of advanced intraocular lenses like extended depth of focus or multifocal intraocular lenses that can help the patient to get rid of glasses even at the extremes of age. As these are one time surgeries the best technology and the implants should be opted after comprehensive eye examination.
