The Pupil Of The Eye Dilates After A Blood Vessel In The Head Bursts?
Afternoon, I want to ask.. my mother had a ruptured blood vessel in her head, then she underwent surgery and has passed the critical period. Now is the recovery period. But my mother’s right eye is difficult to open and her pupil is dilated, how do I fix it?
Hello, thanks for your question.
In normal people, the pupil will react depending on the intensity of the light. The pupil serves as a way to regulate the entry and exit of light into the eye. The pupil will dilate when the light is dim and the pupil will shrink when the light is bright.
From the events you describe, it seems that your mother has a pupil that is dilated (dilated) on one side so that they are not the same size (asymmetrical). This is related to bleeding in the head which causes increased pressure in the head (intracranial). In patients who have undergone surgery, reactivity and pupil size are evaluated as they relate to the neurological condition (nervous system) of the patient. Patients who have asymmetrical pupils in both eyes tend to have a poorer prognosis.
You should consult with the doctor who treats your mother regarding the progress of her disease. Generally, it takes a long time for eye function to gradually improve. After the condition is stable and enters the recovery period, rehabilitation measures are usually carried out to help gradually restore body functions. You can ask the doctor, to what extent is the possibility that the patient can restore his body functions because each patient has a different condition.
The rehabilitation process will involve various types of doctors such as medical rehabilitation specialists, neurologists, ophthalmologists, and other specialists. The length of time required for the recovery period tends to be relative. Therefore, patience and family support are needed so that patients can undergo the rehabilitation process until they show progress.
