The Right Eye Becomes Farsighted After Eye Bleeding?
So my uncle suddenly his right eye has become more shortsighted. And after the examination he said he had bleeding. What could it be to stop the bleeding? Is there food or drink that should be drunk and which should not be consumed ??
Hello, Khenny Honesty Sagala, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Bleeding in the eye can be located in various parts of the eye, both that can be seen from the outside or special examinations must be done to see the deeper parts of the eye, for example:
1. Subconjunctival bleeding (bleeding occurs under the protective membrane of the eye (conjunctiva)
2. Hyphema (bleeding occurs in the front of the eye space, precisely between the iris and cornea)
3. Vitreous bleeding (bleeding occurs in the vitreous body)
4. Bleeding in the retina (nerve of the eye)
The causes can vary, ranging from injury to the eye, inflammation of the eye, high blood pressure, blood clotting disorders, sudden increase in pressure in the blood vessels of the eye (for example when sneezing / coughing / straining too hard), complications of diabetes, tears in the retina (retinal detachment), or using blood thinning drugs. So, to stop the bleeding depends on the cause and location of the bleeding. These things can be determined by an examination by a doctor or ophthalmologist. The doctor will provide therapy according to the cause and location of the bleeding. There are cases that need to be given certain drugs, performed actions (eg laser, surgery), and there are also those that only need to be observed / monitored. It all depends on the conditions, causes, and severity.
To prevent severity, do not take / use any medicine without a prescription from a doctor. In addition, do not touch / rub your eyes, keep your eyes clean, protect eyes (for example with eye-patches, depending on your doctor's advice), do not move too much, avoid pushing / lifting objects too heavy, and sleep with your head apart with a pillow forming an angle of 30-45 degrees (almost half seated). If there is decreased vision / difficulty seeing / blurring, eye pain, headache, immediately consult an eye doctor.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
