Are Coloboma Sufferers Including People With Disabilities?
good morning doctor
Thank you for the question.
Coloboma is a congenital defect that is characterized by the formation of eye tissue or around the eye. This condition is of many types depending on whether it is not formed, for example eyelid coloboma, lens coloboma, macular coloboma, optic nerve coloboma, uvea coloboma and chorio-retinal coloboma. Coloboma occurs due to failure to close the colloidal fissure perfectly when the fetal eye formation, precisely at the age of the womb 0 to 3 months.
Depending on the tissue that is not formed, colobomas can cause various clinical symptoms, and the handling will also vary. This condition can be included as a disability category if you have significantly impaired your vision or even disappear altogether so that you cannot participate properly in social life (referring to the definition of disability according to Law no.4 of 1997 on Persons with Disabilities).
That's all our explanation. For more details, you can consult this matter directly with your doctor or eye doctor.
I hope this helps.
