The Eyes Seem To Blink?
Hello doctor, lately my gaze has flickered like that, Mksud is like dark for a while and then it’s bright again, the frequency of speed from dark to light is like flashing, that’s why doctor ???
Hello, good morning Era.
The sensation of dark and bright vision is quickly referred to as "flashes" or photopsia. This condition is generally not dangerous, but if this condition is felt repeatedly and is prolonged then this condition can be a sign of an eye disease. Some of the disease conditions that can cause this sensation of flasks include:
Posterior Vitreous Detachment (PVD), which is the detachment of the retina (the layer of the eye that lies behind the eyeball and is composed of nerve fibers) from the gel that fills the eyeball (vitreous). This condition is commonly experienced by people who are elderly, because the vitreous shrinks with age.
Retinal tear or detachment of the retina, for example due to injury / trauma to the eyeball, conditions after eye surgery, or due to diabetes / diabetes
Optic neuritis, which is inflammation of the nerves in the eyeball
As mentioned above, these complaints of rapid dark and bright visual sensations are generally harmless. Thus, if you experience it only occasionally, then you don't need to worry too much. However, if you feel this complaint is repeated and prolonged, we recommend that you check with an eye specialist. The doctor will do a question and answer about your complaint, perform a general physical examination, and perform a special eye exam. Usually, an eye examination is done with an instrument called an ophtalmoscope to see the lining of the retina and vitreous, with eye drops that function to dilate the pupil beforehand. The handling of these complaints varies depending on the cause / your diagnosis.
Avoid dripping any drops or giving any eye ointment without a doctor's recommendation. If your complaints are accompanied by pain in the eyeballs, sudden eye blur, vomiting, or severe headaches, consult a doctor immediately.
Hope this helps.
Greetings, dr. Denisa
