Danger Between Minus Eye, Plus Eye And Cylinder?
Hello, my name is Putrhy, I’m 22 years old, I want to ask. I wear eyeglasses but I don’t wear them everyday because I feel odd, my eyes initially checked 1.2 Right and 1.75 Left, how many months later the glasses I used felt dizzy, so I checked Right 1 and Left 1.75 Plus said the optics officer and also cylinder 0.50. Are these minus and plus cylindrical eyes more dangerous? Thank you 🤗
Hello Putrhy Lelo,
Abnormal eye refraction arises when the eye lining is unable to refract the light from the object seen as the right shadow falls on the retina (light-sensitive layer in the eyeball). Refractive disorders are known from refraction checks using reading cards containing letters, numbers, images placed at a certain distance. If the patient cannot read the letters up to line 6/6, the correction is tried using a correction lens (spherical, cylindrical).
Some types of refractive disorders include:
Myopia (nearsightedness). Because the size of the eyeball is too long or the eye lining has too strong a refraction, as a result the shadow of the object falls in front of the retina. Patients have difficulty seeing writing or objects remotely, but if the object is closer the patient can see more clearly. Myopia is corrected with a spherical lens (-). Usually written in prescription glasses S-1.00, S-0.50, S-6.00, and so on
Hypermetropia (farsightedness). Due to the size of the eyeball is too short or the strength of refraction is too fat, as a result the shadow of the object falls behind the retina. Patients have difficulty reading at a distance. Hypermetropia is corrected with a spherical lens (+), commonly written S + 2.00, S + 3.25, and so on
Astigmatism. Caused by irregular curvature of the cornea (the front layer of the eye), so the shadows of the object do not form shadows with a single focal point (scattered shadows). Corrected with cylindrical lenses can (+) or (-), usually written C-0.50, C + 3.00, and so on
Refractive disorders are abnormalities that can be corrected using glasses, contact lenses, or surgical procedures such as LASIK. Refractive disorders that can be corrected perfectly with glasses are not dangerous. Of course, patients must use glasses to be able to see and ability to maintain good vision. When glasses are not used, the retina is not exposed to light, so that over time the function of vision decreases and lazy eyes occur (especially in children).
Wearing glasses does not make your minus increase. The addition of minus / plus glasses is something that is certain in some people, because of the increase in the size of the eyeball or due to changes in the refractive power of the eye lining, not influenced by the use of glasses. If parents have a large minus (> -6.00) it is very possible the child also has a refractive disorder. Patients with large minus disorders should routinely have their eyes checked by an ophthalmologist, because they are more at risk for certain eye diseases that can affect vision.
Checking eye refraction, should be done at an eye specialist or with a refractionist / optometrist in optics that is guaranteed quality. Otherwise, lens correction errors can occur, which causes discomfort when used. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
