Myth Buster of Corona Virus

COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in areas with hot and humid climates?

From the evidence so far, the COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in ALL AREAS, including areas with hot and humid weather. Regardless of climate,

adopt protective measures if you live in, or travel to an area reporting COVID-19. The best way to protect yourself against COVID-19 is by Social distancing and frequently cleaning your hands. By doing this you eliminate viruses that may be on your hands and avoid infection that could occur by then touching  your eyes, mouth, and nose.

Hot weather  CAN kill the new corona virus.?

There is no reason to believe that hot weather can kill the new corona virus.The normal human body temperature remains around

36.5°C to 37°C, regardless of the external temperature or weather.

Taking a hot bath does  prevent the new corona virus disease?

Taking a hot bath will not prevent you from catching COVID-19. Your normal body temperature remains around 36.5°C to 37°C, regardless of the

temperature of your bath or shower. Actually, taking a hot bath with extremely hot water can be harmful, as it can burn you.

The new corona virus CANNOT be transmitted through mosquito bites?.

To date there has been no information nor evidence to suggest that the new corona virus could be transmitted by mosquitoes. The new corona virus is

a respiratory virus which spreads primarily through droplets generated when an infected person coughs or sneezes, or through droplets of saliva or

discharge from the nose. To protect yourself, clean your hands frequently with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water. Also,

avoid close contact with anyone who is coughing and sneezing.

Can spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body kill the new coronavirus?

No. Spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body will not kill viruses that have already entered your body. Spraying such substances can be

harmful to clothes or mucous membranes (i.e. eyes, mouth). Be aware that both alcohol and chlorine can be useful to disinfect surfaces, but they

need to be used under appropriate recommendations.

Can eating garlic help prevent infection with the new corona virus?

Garlic is a healthy food that may have some antimicrobial properties. However, there is no evidence from the current outbreak that eating garlic has

protected people from the new corona virus.

Does the new corona virus affect older people, or are younger people also susceptible?

People of all ages can be infected by the new corona virus (2019-nCoV). Older people, and people with pre-existing medical conditions (such as

asthma, diabetes, heart disease) appear to be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill with the virus.

WHO advises people of all ages to take steps to protect themselves from the virus, for example by following good hand hygiene and good respiratory

2. The Novel Coronavirus (nCoV) is a new strain identified in 2019 that has not been previously identified in humans. So the name nCoVid-19

➽What are the Symptoms of Someone Infected with a Coronavirus?

➱Signs and symptoms of COVID-19 may appear two to 14 days after exposure and can include:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

➱Other symptoms can include:

  • Tiredness
  • Aches
  • Runny nose
  • Sore throat

➽How Coronavirus ( COVID-19 ) Spreads ?

➛Person-to-person spread

➛The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.

➛Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).

➛Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

➛These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.


➽How Can We Avoid Getting Infected through Corona Virus (COVID-19) ?

➛Avoid large events and mass gatherings.

➛Avoid close contact (about 6 feet) with anyone who is sick or has symptoms.

➛Keep distance between yourself and others if COVID-19 is spreading in your community, especially if you have a higher risk of serious illness.

C - LASIK


Wavefront Guided Lasik (Customized Lasik or C-Lasik) is a fast emerging as well as a better tool to restore the quality of vision. The surgical procedure remains the same. Customized Lasik can be better known as Eagle s Eye Vision . It is the next generation of Excimer laser and creates a customized perfect shape to the surface of the eye to allow an ideal focus. 


There are several machines available in the market to measure the spherical and cylindrical
aberrations of the eye. e.g. Zyoptics (Bausch & Lomb) & OPD Scan (Nidek). Out of the machines available OPD Scan from Nidek appears to be the best machine till date. At our center this is the machine that is being used.
Sophisticated software then converts the map into the Clinical Ablation Profile prescription. The prescription is transferred electronically to the computer controlling the laser. The computer calculates the shot pattern (i.e., where and how the laser will operate on the cornea) required for the correction of both the patient s lower and higher order aberrations. These laser machines are the latest generation machines with special laser delivery systems capable of handling such corrections.
Data map of optical imperfection in a human eye which is accessed by Wavefront Technology is then corrected by the laser.

Prerequisites of Laser Surgery
Like any laser surgical procedure, the go-ahead for Lasik surgery is not given to every spectacle user. Some of the prerequisites of laser surgery are:
  • The candidate should be at least 18 years old.
  • The candidate should not be suffering from any eye disease/infection.
  • The candidate should not be pregnant, nursing or planning to conceive.
  • The eye prescription should be stable for about a year and the refractive error should fall within the permitted range for Lasik 
  • Anybody who wishes to consider Lasik eye surgery must be willing to understand its potential risks, complications and side effects which are duly explained by the surgeon.
Procedure
The surgeon uses a microkeratome to create the flap. The flap is then positioned to one side of the corneal bed as the Excimer laser beam (left) is applied. The laser ablation is completed and the flap is replaced. Once the flap is returned to preoperative position, the surgeon carefully checks and rechecks the flap to be certain it is secure and well-positioned.
Lasik involves extensive computer analysis of the eye. Patient is then asked to come on the scheduled day for the laser treatment. Local anesthetic eye drops are instilled in the eye to achieve a pain free procedure. The patient is now made to lie under the laser machine and asked to fix his gaze at a red light. The data of the patient is fed into the computer memory of the laser. A special machine called the microkeratome is used to pick up a thin corneal flap of 160 microns. Laser is delivered to the cornea under this flap to correct the spectacle number. It takes 20 to 60 seconds to complete the laser delivery to one eye. The corneal flap is placed back in position where it holds strongly within two minutes due to its natural bonding properties. The entire procedure takes about 10 minutes.
Benefits of C-Lasik Surgery
The potential benefits of Customized LASIK are as follows:
  • Greater chance of achieving 6/6 vision.
  • Greater chance of achieving better than 6/6 vision.  
  • Reduced chance of losing best corrected vision.
  • Reduced chance of losing visual quality or contrast sensitivity.
  • Reduced chance of night vision disturbances and glare.

TreatmentIn case of retina detachment, a surgery is required preferably within days of diagnosis.The type of the surgery depends on several factors as recommended by the surgon.


2.Diabetic Retinopathy

It is the most common cause of vision loss among people with diabetes and a leading cause of blindness among working-age adults,  diabetic retinopathy is caused by chronically high blood sugar from diabetes is associated with damage to tiny blood vessels in the retina.  Blood vessels in the retina tends to leak fluid or hemorrhage (bleed), distorting vision due to diabetic retinopathy. New abnormal blood vessels increases in the number on the surface of the retina in its most advanced stages ,which leads to scarring and and cell loss in retina.

Treatment-Intra vitreal Injection and VR surgery is treatment of Diabteic Retinopathy

3. What are retinal holes and tears?
Retinal holes and tears are small breaks that occur in the retina, which is the lining at the back of your eye that senses light coming into your eye. mostly holes and tears do not mean you will have serious vision problems right away. fluids starts to leak from the centre of your eyeball to behind the retina due to retinal holes and tears.
