Good night, I want to ask … My eyes are plus size, from my eye examination about a year ago, then I recently checked again but it decreased, first 1.75 now 1.5, said the optical shop, which will have a later effect, namely cataract or diabetes ( blood sugar information after eating me 113) please enlighten me..trm ksh
Good evening Yudhi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Eye plus is a condition of eye disorder where the image seen by the eye falls far behind the retina of the eye, and this condition can be caused by several things, namely:
Eyeballs that are too short
Abnormal shape of the cornea of the eye
The shape of the eye lens that is less convex
In addition to the above causes, nothing else can cause the occurrence of plus eyes, but there are several conditions that can increase a person's risk of experiencing one of the causes of plus eyes, such as:
Age above 40 years
Having parents with eye disorders is a plus
Suffering from diabetes / diabetes, eye cancer, disorders of the blood vessels of the eye or have small eye size syndrome
For your complaints, you should do further examination to an ophthalmologist to do a sharp re-examination of the vision and also the size of the lens you need in accordance with the eye doctor's examination standards to ascertain whether it is true that the lens you need is reduced or not, or indeed you are experiencing other eye disorders that cause the effect in the form of decreased strength of the lens that you need.
Also keep in mind also that the plus eye will not cause cataracts or diabetes, but cataracts or diabetes can indeed increase the risk of developing plus eye conditions. Possible conditions that can arise if the plus eyes are not treated properly and appropriately are the emergence of tired eyes, squinting eyes or lazy eyes.
I hope this helps.
