Can Eye Surgery From Steven Johnson Syndrome Return To Normal ??
Hello Doctor, before I got sick of steven jhonson syndrome, and thank God it’s healed. However, my eyes are still not normal to open my eyes longer. It’s been more than 2 months. Even now, I’m still on outpatient treatment. I want to ask if there really is no cure for healing, and what with eye surgery can return to normal again.
Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
A history of disease with Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) is a widespread inflammatory condition that includes skin tissue and mucous membranes. Patients with SJS, besides accompanied by complaints of the skin, sore throat, tightness, increased heart rate, can also experience complications and eye disorders. So that direct clinical evaluation and direct management of SJS patients by doctors with related competencies are needed to help the risk of complications and the risk of death which can reach 5% of SJS cases.
Some complications of eye health cases that are often encountered in patients with SJS can be:
1. swelling of the eyes
2. redness of the eyes or conjunctiva
3. disorders of the eyelid, such as the appearance of bullae or bags filled with fluid in the eye, the eyelid enters the eye or out of the eye (entropyion / ectropion)
4. secondary infection
5. damage to the cornea
Because at this time you are still feeling complaints of glare or have not been able to open your eyes longer, this condition may be triggered by inflammation or injury to the cornea of your eye. In patients with SJS, the risk of damage to the cornea of the eye can interfere with the comfort of your eyes, so this condition is accompanied by complaints such as glare, sore eyes, visual disturbances that ultimately affect daily activities. Early treatment of patients with SJS is expected to prevent the risk of severe complications of SJS and especially cause damage to the patient's eye organs.
Because the information above is a condition of complaints that you may experience and if you currently experience complications in the eye and your doctor recommends surgery for your eyes, then you need to discuss this directly with your doctor, about your eye condition and prognosis and surgery. what eyes will do. Without these two information, I cannot answer your question well. And this is indeed you need to ask directly to your eye doctor, because your eye doctor knows more about the condition of your eyes at this time, especially if you've been undergoing treatment for 2 months.
Other evaluative steps you can also take, such as asking for a second opinion with another eye doctor, so you get good clinical judgment.
Thus the info we can convey.
