Are Chronic Floaters And Nearsightedness Dangerous?
. i wear glasses from 3sd class. I used to minus one tends to increase by 1 or half every year. now I am 18 years old, last time I checked my eyes a year ago after two years of not checking my eyes, thank God only rose by half, the results were minus -7 and -6.5. r n r n Since 15/14 years old I have seen the presence of floaters, until now the number of floaters has not increased / decreased. and the floaters disappear. no other complaints like seeing flashes / curtains. my question is whether the floaters I have experienced over the years are dangerous? r n r none one more. I happen to be a premature child born a month earlier than expected with a weight of 1.8kg and my mother has pre-eclampsia, during my 3 weeks in incubator, my mother said I used to take off my protective glasses so there was concern that the incubator’s rays would hit my eyes. does this also include triggers I have a high minus? That is all and thank you..
Floaters are spots / lines, lines, or other shapes that appear in someone's field of view, usually the presence of these floaters can disappear and not generally harmless.
However, Shallya is expected to see an eye doctor immediately if he experiences any of the following conditions
The existence of floaters that do not go away, where floaters can usually disappear-arise by itself
The number of floaters increases in a short amount of time. The presence of sparkles or beams of light in the field of vision. There are shadows or black spots in the field of view. The view becomes double, seeing an object becomes as if there are 2, but it does not hurt the eyes. Because the above symptoms appear will increase suspicion of a retinal disturbance, such as retinal tears and / or retinal detachment.
A minus eye or nearsightedness is a condition in which the image of the object seen falls in front of the retina, usually this occurs due to excessive eye gaps, the higher the minus, the greater the eyeball will be, the situation is one of the risks of damage the retina.
Nearsightedness can be experienced by anyone, as for the factors that can trigger nearsightedness and its severity is
Talents are inherited from both parents, where parents who have nearsightedness then their children have a higher possibility of experiencing nearsightedness Also the habit of reading or observing objects at very close distances for a long duration, such as playing a gadget, staring at the screen computer, watching television, reading books, etc. Babies born prematurely and a history of pre-eclampsia have a risk of occurrence of health problems in infants, both the imperfect development of baby's organs to be able to develop perfectly outside the womb. Irradiating an incubator with blue light (for jaundice infants) can affect sensitive baby's body tissues such as the genitals and eyes, so these parts are usually covered by a protective barrier so as not to be affected.
Either unprotected eyes during radiation or births, each can affect the health condition of the eyesight, but it cannot be ascertained that the history is the only thing that causes the complaints you are experiencing at this time, so check with yourself to your doctor eyes so that you can re-evaluate your eye condition and vision to plan what actions and treatments are most appropriate for Shallya.
