Blindness After Suffering A Blow To The Back Of The Head?
Excuse me Doctor, I want to ask. You see, if someone is hit with the back of the head pretty hard, then someone is experiencing blindness? Guess what causes it. And can it be operated on with a new eye donor? And if you may know, what is the eye surgery procedure? Thank you, doctor.
Hello, good afternoon Loxerious ...
The nerve fibers that supply the visual function are divided into two parts namely in the eyeball and in the cavity of the skull. Cases of blindness due to trauma / injury to the back of the head occur because of the impact on the visual nerve that is behind the nerve of the eyeball (ie in the head cavity). The strength of the collision is then spread, causing direct nerve fiber damage, reduced supply of blood flow in the innervation, or pressure against nerve fibers / blood vessels that supply the nerve sight. As a result there will be disruption in vision, including blindness. In addition, bleeding in the retina (the layer behind the eyeball, which contains nerve cells) due to injury to the head can also cause blindness. Treatment options for this condition can include administering steroid drugs through injection into blood vessels, as well as surgery. The surgery performed here is not an eye donor operation, but an operation to reduce pressure on nerve fibers and blood vessels supplying the visual nerve by reducing the swelling that occurs due to trauma / injury.
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
