The Pupil Size Remains Small Even In A Dark Room?
I am beautiful 25 years old, I want to ask why my pupils are small, and my vision is blurry. Please help
Apologies do you mean small pupil is true pupil or iris? The iris is the colored part of the eye (normally Indonesians have black or brownish irises, in Caucasian races the iris can be blue, hazel, brown).
While the pupil is the center of the eye (in the middle of the iris) which is round and black in color. The pupil can enlarge and shrink in response to light. The pupil is in charge of regulating the amount of light entering the eye. When there is bright light the pupil will normally shrink, whereas if the room is dark, the pupil will be enlarged.
In general, the pupil size during bright light is 2-4 mm, while when the room is dark or the light is dim, it can be enlarged to 4-8 mm. Does the small pupil mean that your pupil does not react to light? Pupils that remain small in size even in a dark room can be affected by bleeding, trauma, head and neck injuries, disorders of the optic nerve, and pupil tonic. The condition of the pupil that does not respond to light stimuli requires further examination by a doctor.
As for blurred vision, did it happen suddenly, accompanied by complaints of pain, glare, narrowed field of view? Blurred vision means decreased vision. There are several factors that can cause decreased visual acuity, including:
Eye refractive disorders: nearsightedness / eye minus, farsightedness / plus eyes, astigmatism / astigmatism glaucoma / increased pressure in the eyeball Cataracts Dry eyes and tired eyes Infections and injuries to the eye Retinopathy: diabetic retinopathy and hypertensive retinopathy Retinal detachment / retinal detachment Macular degeneration in the elderly Having complaints of small pupils and blurred vision, you should immediately consult an ophthalmologist so that they can be further examined so that the cause is known. The doctor may perform a visual test, examination using an ophthalmoscope and slit lamp to find out the cause. Furthermore, after the cause is known, the doctor can provide the right treatment for you.
While waiting to see the doctor, you should rest your eyes so you don't get tired, keep your eyes from getting too bright, adjust reading distance and room lighting, avoid eye cosmetics, and avoid wearing contact lenses.
