Is It Possible To See The Nerve If The Eye Is Damaged Again?
My sister had a tumor operation on the head precisely in the nerves of the eye and experienced blindness and the right eye was more prominent and felt heavy while the left eye was normal and felt light. Is it possible to see the eye nerve if you see it again? Thank you
Hello Nida, Thank you for the question.
The eye nerve is one of the important components that serves to maintain one's vision. In order for a person to see, it is necessary to have good function of the cornea, lens of the eye, vitreous fluid, retina, nerve and brain. If there is interference with one of these components, then a person can experience vision problems or even lose his vision. The eye nerve is located behind the eyeball which is then connected to the back of the brain. Brain tumors can cause brain function disorders. In addition, if the tumor is pressing on the surrounding tissue, such as the eye nerve, then the function of the surrounding tissue can also be disrupted. Brain tumors that compress the eyes can cause heaviness in the eyes, eyes get tired, and eyes stand out. If this brain tumor only presses on the nerves of the eye, maybe the vision can still recover but it does require a long period of time. However, if there is damage to the eye nerve, then in general this condition is an irreversible condition or difficult to cure. The best step now is to consult a neurosurgeon and eye specialist who treats your sister. The doctor is the one who has carried out the examination and handled your sister so that she better understands your sister's condition including its severity. Thus, the doctor is the one who has clearer information about your brother's condition. Don't hesitate to ask the doctor about the possibility of a return of your brother's vision.
Hopefully this information helps you.
