We treated a case of Mrs Snehal ( name changed) , 28 yrs old female who is an architect by profession. Not only does she love her profession but also is an avid reader.
Since 2 years she had complaints of constant headaches which she attributed to her lack of sleep due to long hours at work and would pop painkiller pills. Like any other professional she didn't have the time to show to a physician. But recently her headaches worsened and she couldn't focus on the finer details while doing her sketches which made her think about her vision. She never had glasses all her life and always thought she would never need one. But due to the headaches and not being able to see clearly; she went to an optician store and got her eyes checked and got the pair of glasses.
Voila! all in less than 5 minutes she said to herself. Feeling accomplished with her time management; she went back to work. days passed by and so did weeks but nothing seemed to help her at all. This was when she decided she needs a specialist opinion.
Her father visit Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI) located at Sanpada, Navi Mumbai for his routine checkup. He kept telling his daughter not to take eyes for granted but she just never had the time. After discussing with her father; she decided to take an appointment with AEHI for it is the best eye hospital in Navi Mumbai and no harm can come to her.
Her appointment was 3 days later. On the appointment day; she underwent routine tests which included checking her eyes with her glasses and without her glasses. They checked for other factors like eye pressure, colour detection and depth perception. She was then sent to Dr. Vandana Jain, Cornea and Cataract Specialist. She was pretty happy knowing she would be consulted by Dr. Vandana Jain because she is the best eye specialist one can ask for.
Dr. Vandana Jain checked her eyes and was amazed. Mrs. Snehal didn't need any specific treatment besides a change in her glasses. When Dr. Vandana Jain described that she has no disorder or disease of any sort and simply had issues with her eye due to a faulty number that was prescribed to her. Wrong pair of glasses led to her headaches. Snehal never felt so disappointed in herself for she knows her hurry simple option led her to this state.
Snehal also complained of pain in the eye and a lot of tearing. Dr. Vandana Jain mentioned that all these symptoms were a complication of wearing the wrong number and eyes trying to cope up with it. We humans tend to complicate our life because we just can't make time for our own health. Dr. Vandana Jain prescribed her few eye drops to take care of her problems that arose due to the wrong power of glasses.
Mrs Snehal changed her glasses as per the prescription was given to her by Dr. Vandana Jain. Mrs Snehal came for her follow-up visit in a week, in which most of her complaints were relieved. The tearing, pain of her eyes were reduced and she was happy to mention that she is free from her headaches.
Mrs Snehal is back to her work with full zest. She is very thankful to Dr. Vandana Jain and staffs of AEHI for helping her out and giving an honest solution.
