    Looking brighter circular cloudy glow over the light
    Sunshineglow posted:
    Dear Sir,
    Recently I have used one herbal eye drop for healing halos. It composed with Onion, Ginger, Honey, Lemon and the preservative Benjamin Chloride. Instead of healing that it makes worse. The halos become more clear being seen and also made one brighter circular cloudy glow over the light. Next of the cloudy glow the halos are seen very clear. I used the drop only for 3 days, 3 times a day. Then I quit the drop. Is the cloudy brightness anything serious or it will diminish its own by time ?
    please help...

    Dear Sunshineglow:

    I think you need to find a reason for your "halos". This requires a full eye exam by an experienced eye doctor. The common causes include cataract as well as some corneal conditions.

    Once you have the diagnosis, reasonable treatment options should be available. Using the types of remedies which you have mentioned have no proven beneficial effect in any eye condition and at best, delay your getting the real answer from a doctor at worst, may harm your eyes.

    Please make an appointment to see an eye doctor.

    Dear Sir,
    I went to a big eye hospital, they have conducted all the eye tests and examinations. After that they told me that there is nothing wrong in your eyes. Your eyes as well as vision are good. The eye test report as follows :

    VD ---------- Rt. 6/9 p1, Lt. 6/9
    PH ---------- Rt. 6/6 p1, Lt. 6/6 p1

    Ocular L/R OD OS

    Lids Normal Normal
    Conjunctiva Quiet Quiet
    Cornea Clear Clear
    Anterior Chamber PACD=1/7 PACD=1/7
    Pupil 2 mm round regular reacting with thin membrane.
    Lens Clear Clear
    IOP 17.3 MM Hg, 5 gm wt.

    Please see the report and guide me for treatment for the halos and the cloudy glow, which is recently added with the halos. I need your valuable suggestion and precious reply.
