Astigmatism Therapy In Children Aged 6 Years?
good morning my child is 6 years 9 months old and was diagnosed with astigmatism. I want to ask what is meant by H52.2 Astigmatism and can it be cured? then the use of RG Choline and optimax plus in the long run has an effect? before and after thank you
Hello Yuli Hasanah, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Astigmatism is a vision disorder (making vision blurry) due to an irregular form of corneal curvature or a less normal corneal curvature (can be congenital, due to injury, or a history of previous eye surgery). Code H52.2 is an ICD10 diagnostic code (code used commonly for a diagnosis), which refers to the diagnosis of astigmatism. Until now there has not been enough research data that astigmatism can be cured with supplements and medications taken (including with the drug you mentioned above). Correction for astigmatism is the use of glasses / cylindrical contact lenses, or it can also be through LASIK surgery procedures performed by ophthalmologists.
The use of glasses is more recommended than contact lenses, because contact lenses require a handler that is really clean and painstaking to prevent corneal dryness and prevent eye infections. It is recommended not to rub the eyes and prevent trauma to the eye.
All of our suggestions and answers, hopefully useful, good morning.
