Prevention And Treatment Of Hypertensive Retinopathy?
assalamualaikum I want to ask how to treat and prevent this disease?
Hello, hello, Mrs. Auliya, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. Based on his understanding, hypertension retinopathy is a condition in which there is a change in blood vessels in the retina / nerve part of the eye caused by hypertension / high blood pressure. Retinopathy is a complication of hypertension that has occurred in the long term or is chronic and uncontrolled. Apart from the symptoms that appear (headache, pain in the eye, decreased vision or blurred vision) hypertension retinopathy is also established based on physical examination and investigations that use visual examination, tonometry, funduscopy, and ultrasound B-Scan.
Because the basic cause of hypertension retinopathy is high blood pressure which affects the blood vessels in the eyeball, so to prevent and treat is to lower and maintain blood pressure so it does not rise / stabilize. At least the blood pressure must be lowered below 140/90 mmHg. In addition, changes and healthy lifestyle patterns must also be considered. The reduction in body weight to the ideal weight standard also plays an important role in stabilizing your blood pressure. Our explanation is the action in the form of prevention as well as treatment in hypertensive retinopathy, but in hypertensive retinopathy that is already in a dangerous condition (accompanied by internal bleeding) namely laser photocoagulation, but this will certainly be decided based on the examination conducted by an ophthalmologist. We advise you to at least consult with an ophthalmologist so that your eye condition is examined and a coronation is determined which is certainly in accordance with your condition.
Thus we can convey, hopefully our information can be useful for you. thanks.
