The Cause Of The Appearance Of White Fat In The Eyes, Is Cataracts?
Good afternoon, I’m a 22-year-old woman at this time my eyes appear white fat that is almost on the eyeball, do I belong to cataracts and have surgery? Are there other healing alternatives besides surgery? Thank you doctor
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Patients with cataracts clinically will appear to have white patches on the black part of the eye. These white patches generally deteriorate slowly until they cause vision to be totally blocked. These white patches appear due to clouding of the eyepiece. As a result, sufferers will feel their vision foggy, blurry (especially at night), more sensitive to light, often see halo around light, and also often experience double vision.
Frequently, cataracts appear in older people. Although it does not rule out cataracts can also occur in younger people like you. Apart from aging, various other factors can trigger cataracts, including diabetes, obesity, smoking, excessive sun exposure, hypertension, injury or inflammation in the eye, long-term use of corticosteroids, or also excessive alcohol consumption.
Although it may be caused by cataracts, it does not rule out the possibility of white fat in the eye as you mentioned appears due to other causes, for example pterygium, pseudopterigium, pinguecula, keratitis, benign or malignant tumors in the eyes, and so on.
To determine whether your complaint is caused by cataracts, or there are other reasons, you need to see yourself directly to the doctor or ophthalmologist. In this way, doctors can certainly provide the best alternative solutions. If it is true that your complaint arises from cataracts, treatment can be done with surgery. However, if it turns out that something else triggered it, of course the handling could be different again.
At this time, what you should do:
Do not gouge or exaggerate the eyes that experience complaints
Protect eyes from direct sun exposure
Do not carelessly give medication to eyes that experience complaints without doctor's advice
If vision is impaired, in your activities, make sure you always use enough lighting
Hope this helps ...
