The FDA minimum age limit for LASIK is 18 years of age provided the individual's prescription has remained stable and is not changing. Hopefully this input is helpful. READ MORE
I presume your prescription changed from -1.25 to -1.75. That would suggest your myopia get a little worse; however, if it did change from -1.75 to -1.25, then it did improve (which is not likely but possible). READ MORE
Never try to salvage dried out Contact Lenses. Once they have dried out they are no good and not safe for your eyes. Toss them and purchase a new pair. READ MORE
To answer your question, there is a minimum age requirement set forth by the FDA. That age is 18 years and up. At 12 years old, your daughter's eyes may still be changing and any surgery she would have today would likely change in the next few years. The surgery does not do anything to prevent the progression of myopia. Most individuals are stable by the time they are 18 years of age. READ MORE
First, you have to determine if the double vision is binocular or monocular. The easiest way to determine this is by closing one eye at a time to see if the double vision goes away. If it does resolve with each eye closed separately, then it is binocular. Accidents typically cause traumatic 4th nerve injuries. This is the nerve that innervates the superior oblique muscle of the eye. They usually resolve, but it's best to see an ophthalmologist to determine the exact cause. READ MORE
To answer your question, an individual's eyesight generally changes until their late teens to early 20s (if it's going to change). After that point it usually stabilizes. Unfortunately, I'm not aware of anything you can do to stop the changes from occurring. As long as your vision can be improved with glasses or contacts, it's nothing serious. My recommendation is to have your eyesight evaluated on an annual basis (by an ophthalmologist). READ MORE
Lumigan is a relatively safe glaucoma eye drop which is known as a prostaglandin-analog. I'm not aware of any dietary restrictions with any glaucoma medications. In terms of side effects, the most common are possible burning and stinging upon instillation, eyelash lengthening and growth, and increased iris color pigmentation (especially in light colored irides).

Either you have an ill-fitting contact lens which needs to be adjusted, or you have dry eye and the contact lens is making your condition worse. It's also possible you have bumps (papillae) on the underneath of your upper eyelid. Have an ophthalmologist see your upper lid to check and see if you are developing giant papillary conjunctivitis.
