Causes Small White Spheres On The Sclera?
Good afternoon, Mr / Ms Doctor.
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
How old are you now?
White patches on the eyes as you complain requires a first examination to find out the cause. It should also be evaluated for other symptoms that accompany, such as red eyes, a sharp decrease in vision, discharge from the eye, etc. If the position is in the sclera / cornea, the possibility of these spots is scar tissue or matrix. If the position is on the lens, the possibility of these spots indicates the presence of cataracts. In addition, there are also several other possibilities that can cause complaints as you submit, including:
Dry eye syndrome, which is dry eye due to the suboptimal volume or function of tears causing disturbances in the tear layer, symptoms: the eyes feel dry, often runny, itchy, tired / tired for a long time, foreign body sensations such as sand in the eye
Viral conjunctivitis, which is inflammation of the conjunctiva due to viral infection, symptoms: red eye, lots of clear fluid
Allergic conjunctivitis, namely inflammation of the conjunctiva due to allergic reactions, symptoms: red eyes, there are other allergic complaints such as runny nose and sneezing especially in the morning
If the complaint is disturbing, you are advised to check directly with your doctor or ophthalmologist so that you can do anamnesis and physical examination and support (if necessary). It is expected that later the disease causing complaints can be known and given appropriate treatment. As a recommendation, you are advised to avoid eye rubbing habits, maintain eye hygiene, avoid excessive exposure to pollution (for example by wearing a helmet with a glass on the front or wearing protective glasses when riding a motorcycle), and not just using eye drops without a prescription and doctor's supervision. To enrich insight, you can read articles about dry eyes.
