Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Goiter or goiter is a condition when there is a disturbance in the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is a gland located at the front and center of the neck and is shaped like a butterfly. For more details, please see the image below.
This thyroid gland has a specific function, which is to produce thyroid hormone which plays a role in various processes in the body such as raising and lowering body temperature, accelerating and slowing down the heart rate, controlling metabolism, and many more.
There are many causes and factors that trigger this disease, including:
Hyperthyroid or hypothyroid conditions Immune system disorders Inadequate intake of iodine Inhalation of cigarette smoke Inflammation of the thyroid gland due to viral or bacterial infection Hormonal changes due to puberty Drug side effects
In your case, the vision changes in relation to thyroid disease are as follows. As we have written above, one of the causes of thyroid disease is an immune system disorder. This disorder makes the immune system, which is supposed to attack foreign objects such as viruses and bacteria, instead attacks the body's own tissues - which in the case of thyroid disease, it attacks the thyroid tissue. In addition to the thyroid gland, the immune system can also attack eye tissue, which causes Thyroid Eye Disease and causes sufferers to experience dry eye symptoms, red eyes, bulging eyes, double vision, difficulty closing the eyes, and problems with vision.
The tissue of the eye that is attacked over time will become inflamed and swollen, thus pressing on the nerve of the eye which is located behind the eyeball. These compressed eye nerves can eventually interfere with a person's vision and possibly in your case, cause your vision to darken and change color.
Our advice, because this is a problem that is very complex and specialized, consult about this problem to an eye doctor, and tell him you have a history of thyroid disease. Your ophthalmologist tries to find evidence whether the condition is due to the mumps you have or other reasons by asking about your medical history, and doing a physical examination may also be a support. The treatment you will receive will depend on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, take thyroid medication / goiter that your doctor gives you regularly and regularly, follow a good control schedule, and adopt a healthy lifestyle by consuming more water, exercising and resting regularly, and eating nutrient-rich foods such as vegetables and fruit. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
