Hello Syahrul, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
The existence of 'white spots' in the eyes, especially in the pupil of the eye (part of the cornea) can not be underestimated, this is related to the vital tools we use to see everyday (eyes). Some things that cause the appearance of white spots on the eye are usually influenced by factors such as trauma to the eye such as exposure to the eye with dust, smoke, wind or foreign matter. Including the autoimmune process can also cause similar things to occur in the eye. The possible emergence of white spots on the eye are caused by:
Pseudopterygium: the emergence of a tissue that is generally white in color, which can arise anywhere on the surface of the eyeball. Influencing factors are exposure to the eye with UV light, wind, dust, smoke, history of trauma to the eye and foreign matter.
Pterygium: growth of a whitish or gray tissue that arises in the area around the surface of the white eyeball, and develops continuously towards the black eyeball, this occurs due to a degeneration process.
Pingekuela: tissue growth that looks like yellowish-white patches that arise on the white part of the eyeball, usually without complaint
Corneal ulcers: trauma to the eye (due to foreign body ingestion, exposure to hard liquids, exposure to strong anngins that carry sand, dust, other objects) into the black part of the eyeball, and make the part become injured and imprint white. Usually accompanied by redness around the white eyeballs
Keratitis: an inflammatory reaction on the black part of the eyeball caused by a viral, bacterial or fungal infection
There are many possible causes of complaints that you feel, so as to make sure only by examining directly your eyes, and also digging information from other previous histories that may be related to your eyes, apart from the use of contact lenses and eye glasses. So we advise you to immediately check your eyes to an expert, an eye doctor. Because we are worried that if this situation does not immediately get the right treatment it can spread to other parts, or more fatal can cause a decrease in vision from your eyes.
Meanwhile, to look after your eyes, you can do a number of things in order to keep your eyes from getting traumatized or things that can aggravate the symptoms that arise, such as:
avoid eye rubbing habits
avoid the use of eye drops without the doctor's advice beforehand, because any material that is in the eye drops, if it is not needed by the eye it will be dangerous and potentially injuring the eye
avoid seeing objects / objects in a distance that is too close and in a long duration such as seeing books, cell phones, computers, televisions, etc.
avoid direct exposure to strong winds
Inadequate intake of vitamin A needs that can be obtained from yellow vegetables such as tomatoes, carrots, etc.
use protective goggles when you are outside the house, so as to keep your eyes irritated by dust and UV exposure
So that we can convey, hopefully useful. Thanks.
