His Eyes Are Neither Min Nor Plus?
Hello, I am 18 years old, my eyes are blurry but only the right side, the left is still clear. When I went to the ophthalmologist, he said that his eyes were fine. In the test, using plus or min glasses, the eye doctor also advised me to go to the neurologist. From the nerves, he was told to check with an ophthalmologist again. I have been outpatient 2 times a month to an eye doctor , but until now there has been no change, the ophthalmologist also said ‘this eye drop is just to relieve eye dizziness’. I haven’t been to the doctor for a long time, but in my opinion my vision is even more blurry. Ask for advice, thank you
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Blurred vision can occur due to many things, such as:
Cataract disorders Inflammation of the clear membranes of the eye Inflammation of the uvea structure of the eye Injury to the eye Refractive disorders such as myopia and hypermetropia Glaucoma or increased pressure in the eye disorders of the nerves of the eye Retinal infections
In your case, maybe what your eye doctor really meant was not all right, but your blurriness is not caused by a condition that causes minus or plus eyes. Your ophthalmologist refers you to a neurologist because he suspects an abnormality in the eye nerves, but your neurologist may not find the abnormality so he will refer you back to the ophthalmologist to look for other possible causes of your opacity.
What you need to know is that you have the right to seek a second opinion to another eye doctor regarding your condition. You have the right to ask your doctor for a clear explanation regarding your condition and plans for further treatment or examination. Your doctor cannot just "give up" and only give you drugs that treat the symptoms, unless the disorder is incurable or has not found a cure. But if this is the case, your doctor should be able to explain to you what the disorder is and why it happened to you.
So that in the future, your step is routine control, and convey all the information you know about your eyes to the doctor, even though you think it may not be related such as headaches, family history and so on. Meanwhile, rest your eyes, don't look at the monitor screen in a dark place, adjust the brightness level of your device's screen to your comfort, avoid dusty, polluting and smoky places, and maintain a visibility of objects at least 30 cm. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
