Causes And Ways To Overcome The Retina That Becomes Thin?
, when I was pregnant, I checked my retina (eye minus 7) because the doctor’s retina was too thin, so it couldn’t be normal … because it’s already down dgr it u0026amp; the risk is that I don’t ask many questions the same doctor, so I want to ask, – what causes the retina to become thin? – Can the retina return to normal? thin? eagerly awaited answer
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, a minus eye or myopia can occur because the person has eyeballs whose shape is not round but is more elongated than normal.
You can see in the picture above, people who have myopia have longer eyeballs so that the shadow of the object that enters the eye falls more in front of the retina. The greater the minus one's eyes, chances are the eyes are longer. The shape of this long eyeball will cause greater traction on the retina of the eye (you can also see in the picture, the retina is one of the layers on the inside of your eyeball). Women who have a large eye minus, will be more at risk of experiencing loose eye retina (or called retinal detachment) when straining strongly during childbirth. Can you imagine you attach an inelastic plastic to the inside side of an elastic rubber. When you pull the rubber, it is very likely that the non-elastic plastic will come off the attachment to the rubber. The same thing can happen to the retina of your eye.
This can not be treated and will not be able to return to normal (because there is indeed an abnormality in the shape of your eyeballs). Your retina will also not become thinner. The term "thin" used by your ophthalmologist does not indicate that your retina is thinner than a normal retina (because normally the retina is thin), but only describes the condition of traction on your retina because your eyeballs are longer than normal. To prevent retinal detachment, you can follow the advice of your ophthalmologist to carry out labor by surgery alone. Having a birth by cesarean section does not make you any less a woman than a woman who gives birth normally, so you don't need to feel discouraged or down because of this.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
