Is It Possible If The Minus Eye Gives Birth Normally?
I want to ask, is it true that a pregnant woman with minus eyes cannot give birth normally? If so, why? If it is forced to be normal it will be risky / dangerous. Please respond to the doc. Thank you
Hello Princess Ana, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Minus eyes or nearsightedness (myopia) is an eye condition where it is difficult or blurry to see objects or writing that are far away. Myopia occurs because the shape of the eye or lens in the eye is too convex, resulting in a focal point that should fall on the retina of the eye, so it is located in front of the retina. The cause of myopia is usually related to heredity or genetic and environmental influences.
Previously, doctors need information about how much minus on your eyes? Pregnant women who suffer from high myopia are not advised to give birth normally because patients with high minus eyes are at risk of retinal detachment or ablation. If you have high minus eyes that is above minus 6 then you should consult your obstetrician and ophthalmologist to choose a birth plan which is safe for mother.
Some things that can be used to maintain eye health and prevent the development of myopia include:
Adjust your reading or work position so as not to get too close Ensure good lighting when you work or read Rest your eyes every 20-30 minutes at work or read a book Check eye health regularly every 6 months Avoid smoking habits Use glasses or contact lenses with right size Consumption of foods rich in vitamin A Hopefully this information can help you. thank you
