Are The Symptoms Of Posterior Uveitis Curable?
Good afternoon, I am a man aged 36 years. About 4m ago my eyes had blurred vision. In my right eye there is a blind spot right in focus and below while my left eye has a blind spot below and on the left side and there are black floaters like grains of sand. I had my eyes checked at the eye hospital and I was sentenced to posterior uveitis caused by the toxoplasmosis parasite, I had been on oral corticosteroid and anti-bacterial drug therapy for 6 weeks but the results of my vision remained unchanged. According to the ophthalmologist who examined me mentioned that the inflammation had healed, while there were still stains of inflammation that caused the eye to still have a blind spot. I want to ask whether the stain of inflammation can completely heal? And can the floaters in the eyes disappear? thanks.
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Chances are what you mean by "stained inflammation" is scar tissue (scrub) after inflammation / infection in components in the eye. The scar tissue is formed to replace the tissue in the uvea / choroid of the eye that is damaged due to infection / inflammation / trauma. The presence of scar tissue generally causes interference with the view, including floaters as you complain. During your scarring, usually complaints of visual disturbances remain.
In general, scar tissue is difficult to disappear spontaneously without undergoing surgical procedures to remove it. However, this requires direct confirmation by the ophthalmologist who treats you because it still requires an evaluation by the doctor about the stain you are referring to. Therefore, you are advised to discuss the prognosis of your eye health problems with an eye specialist who treats you directly.
