Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
Hordeolum, or in medical language, is a red, boil-like lump that forms on the eyelid due to blockage of the eye gland which in turn results in infection and inflammation.
The symptoms that are caused are pain in the lump, reddish color in the middle of which there is pus, and the eye feels heavy. Uncomplicated hordeolum rarely results in decreased visual acuity because it is located on the eyelid, does not interfere with the pathway of image formation in the eye. Hordeolum can cause decreased vision if the condition is so bad that it spreads to the cornea of the eye resulting in corneal infection (keratitis) which is symptomatic of eye pain, decreased visual acuity, and eye glare when seeing light. However, this condition is very rare.
Your father's blurry vision could be related to the complicated history of the hordeolum mentioned above, but it could also be unrelated to the hordeolum, such as the following:
Retina damage due to high blood pressure
Retina damage due to diabetes
Eye lens opacification (cataract)
Blockage of the eye blood vessels
Glaucoma (increased eye pressure)
Corneal infection (which is not due to the hordeolum)
Pigment membrane infection of the eye
To ascertain the cause of the complaint, you should further consult an ophthalmologist to be examined directly. The doctor will delve further into the course of your father's illness and will perform a detailed eye examination. If necessary, the doctor will carry out supporting examinations such as blood tests, eye pressure checks, etc. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for your father according to the underlying condition.
Things that can be done to improve the condition, prevent worsening, while maintaining eye health are:
Avoid rubbing your eyes
Wash hands before touching the eye area
Use sunglasses when exposed to the sun to reduce glare and pain, as well as prevent eye irritation by dust and foreign matter
Stay with your father as long as the eye is still blind to avoid danger
Avoid reading / looking at the screen too closely, reading in a dark room, reading in small letters (if you can see)
Get enough rest, sleep 7-8 hours a day
Eat nutritious foods, especially those containing vitamins A, B complex, E, C, omega 3 to support eye health, which you can find in vegetables, fruits and meat
Routine control of high blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol if any
Avoid consumption of cigarettes, alcohol, and illegal drugs
That is the explanation from me. Hopefully helpful and useful. Get well soon for your father :)
