- Your eye care professional will place drops in your eyes to dilate, or widen, the pupil to allow more light to enter the eye -- the same way an open door lets more light into a dark room.
- This process offers a good look at the back of the eyes, so they can be examined for any signs of damage or disease.
- Your close-up vision may remain blurry for a few hours after the exam.

How is episcleritis treated?

The good news is that episcleritis often clears by itself. If it doesn't, your doctor will likely prescribe some type of eye drop, or an oral anti-imflammatory drug.
How can eating spinach help preserve my eye health?
Dole Nutrition Institute answeredAccording to the American Optometric Association (AOA) , dark, leafy greens are the healthiest food for eyes overall. Women who consumed the most lutein and zeaxanthin—6,700 micrograms per day—enjoyed an 18 percent lower risk of developing cataracts. Spinach is loaded with these potent antioxidants, believed to filter the high-energy light waves that cause free-radical damage to the eyes and skin. They’ve also been found to cut the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD ), which women are more prone to than men. Research suggests that daily intake of the amount available in one cup of cooked spinach is enough to realize the benefits.
Other lutein sources include colorful fruits and vegetables, such as broccoli, kale, collard greens, turnip greens, corn, green beans, peas, summer squash, oranges and tangerines.Helpful? 2 people found this helpful.
