In wet Age Related Macular Degeneration [ARMD], since there are leakages which have to be sealed, it needs to be treated. Earlier the recommendation was ARGON laser treatment or PDT (Photodynamic therapy) which did not give desired results.
The common reasons why people undergo LASIK/ laser eye surgery include contact lens allergies and lifestyle activities that are inhibited due to glasses.

Can i change the color of my eyes?
Tempting as it may sound, there is no permanent laser or any other procedure to change the colour of the iris, and if at all, it is done by destroying the natural colour or pigment of your eyes, with no idea of what its long term complications or side effects could be!
Modern cataract surgery begins with a very small incision. Dr Shroff uses a technique allowing incision size to be decreased to less than 2 mm. These small incisions seal themselves immediately after surgery and heal over the following few weeks.
If you have diabetes you should know that you are more vulnerable to eye diseases like cataracts, retinopathy and blindness. Several factors influence whether you get retinopathy.

Myopia or nearsightedness is an eye disorder that, in simple terms, causes difficulty in seeing objects at a distance clearly. On the other hand, it also means that close-by objects can be seen clearly and easily.

Contact Lens related problems
A contact lens wearer who presents with conjunctival irritation and associated symptoms – such as itching, burning or tearing – may be suffering from any one of a number of conditions (such as allergy) of which the lenses may not be the primary cause.
Care of eyes during examinations
For students: The most important reason why most students come to us is headaches and eye strain. This could be because of a probable spectacle number. But most of the times these symptoms are aggravated during school or college examinations.
A cataract occurs when there is a clouding of the natural lens inside your eye. True. Because this lens works just like the lens of a camera, a clouded lens will keep light and images from reaching the retina, which sends images to your brain. This is the reason that a cataract causes sharp images to become blurry, bright colors to become dull, and seeing at night more difficult.
Cataract in new born babies and children
Some cataracts are present at birth (called congenital cataracts), and others develop during the first few months or years of life. Some cataracts are hereditary, and others due to metabolic or systemic abnormalities. In many cases, the cause is unknown. In the older child, cataracts are often related to injuries or ocular inflammation related to juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
