The Results Of The Eye Examination Exposed To The Toxoplasmosis Virus?
I have something to ask about the toxo virus. My husband’s eyes aged 43 blurred / blurry vision. Actually it has been complained for a long time from 15 years ago, if it feels dazzled and opaque there is no indication of fever / eye pain / irritation. Recently I asked to go to the hospital and it turned out that his eye nerves had been hit by the toxo virus and it was said that the virus was dead. The question and search for second opinion, is there a way to cure it back to normal? Can the virus attack again? And get paid off by the closest family member? Thank you very much in advance for the doctor’s answer.
Good morning, thanks for the question
Toxoplasmosis oculi is caused by a parasitic toxoplasma infection. Infection by this organism causes both acute and chronic conditions in humans. Symptoms that are felt by patients generally include blurred vision and floaters (seeing as black or clear spots that hover in the field of view). Humans are infected by ingesting toxoplasma parasitic cysts from beef, lamb, pork or chicken that are not cooked until cooked. Toxoplasma parasites cannot transmit from human to human, except through vertical transmission from pregnant women to the fetus that is conceived, or through organ transplant procedures.
In the acute phase of toxoplasmosis will cause inflammation of the retina and choroid (retinochoroiditis) for several weeks to years after the initial infection. Retinochoroiditis causes necrotic foci and vasculitis to form which can remain active for several weeks, then heal and leave scar tissue. But the scar tissue can still contain parasitic cysts that remain alive in it. Rupture of the cyst can cause toxoplasma parasites to be released again so that retinocoroiditis can occur repeatedly. This recurrence can occur years later for example triggered by stress conditions and such.
This condition can be completely resolved by administering medicines in the form of oral, topical, or injection drugs. The aims of therapy in this condition are as follows:
1. Deal with symptoms
2. Control the source of infection
3. Prevent eye damage due to inflammatory processes
4. Prevents recurrence
5. Vision rehabilitation
That's all, hopefully it can help.
