Hello, thank you for trusting HealthReplies.com.
Refractive eye disorder is a disorder in which the eye is difficult to focus images precisely on the area where the light falls, namely the retina. As a result, vision feels blurry and less clear.
There are 4 types of refractive errors, namely myopia (minus eyes), hypermetropia (plus eyes), presbyopia (old eyes), and astigmatism (cylindrical eyes).
In myopia or short-sightedness, the eyeball is too long so that the image falls in front of the retina. This abnormality is corrected with concave-lensed glasses. If not corrected, the work of the eye will be heavy, so it has the potential to cause the eyeball to grow longer.
While astigmatism is a disorder in which the lens of the eye is uneven so that the image formed is also uneven, especially difficult to see lines that are close together. Astigmatism is not directly related to the length of the eyeball, therefore correction using cylindrical glasses is done only when astigmatism shows a real disturbance. If on examination found astigmatism, but the patient does not really feel the effect in work or daily life, then the correction can be postponed.
The following things you can do every day:
1. Do not stare at a computer screen or gadget for too long, alternating it by looking at objects that are far away every 2 hours.
2. Expand the consumption of vitamin A and vitamin D. Sources of vitamin A for example carrots, tomatoes. Sources of vitamin D include fish, eggs, mushrooms, and frequent sunbathing.
3. Do not read or play gadgets while lying on your back.
4. Avoid pushing too hard, for example when lifting heavy objects, ask someone else for help.
