The Cause Of Eye Examination Results Is Stated That The Pressure Inside The Eyeball Is Higher?
Tonight, I am a diamond of 22 years old. Two weeks ago I checked he said my eyes hypedensi ukoli, after I control again turned into optic neuropathy, what is the cause? What are the bad effects? Thank you
Good evening Intan, I help answer yes ..
Oculi hypertension is a condition where the pressure in the eyeball (can be one or both) is higher than the normal state (normal eye pressure is around 10-21 mmHg), that is the pressure when measured> 21 mmHg. The cause of hypertension is an abnormality in the fluid disposal system in the eyeball or commonly referred to as an angle disorder. However, oculi hypertension is not a diagnosis, just a condition that must be considered more because the pressure can continue to increase to cause a disease called glaucoma.
While optic neuropathy is a condition where there is damage to one part of the eye nerve. The causes can be various kinds such as lack of vitamin B12 and folic acid, side effects of drugs, disorders of the eye's nerve blood flow, autoimmune diseases, and there are several more. Some conditions that cause it to be treated quickly can restore nerve function almost as before, but if not treated quickly and appropriately, can have an impact on causing permanent nerve damage to the eye that can result in death.
For the cause of a change in diagnosis when you return to control, you can ask the ophthalmologist who treats you further, because there are several factors that can cause a change in the diagnosis.
I hope this helps.
