The Use Of Herbal Medicines When Undergoing Pterygium Treatment?
Hello Imelda Juliyanti, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will try to answer your question.
Petrygium is a disease in the eye that is characterized by the appearance of a triangular membrane on the sclerera (the whites of the eye) until it reaches the cornea. This condition is usually preceded by the presence of pinguecula. The cause of this disease is usually most often affected by old age, but continuous sun exposure is thought to be a trigger for the disorder, accompanied by exposure to dust, sand, and smoke (usually in people who are frequent outside activities).
You don't need to worry about this disease, petrygium is not a cancer cell. Rarely causes danger, but if the pteygium grows to reach the cornea of the eye it can cause vision problems.
There is no specific treatment for this disease, operative action will only be done if a pterygium complaint arises that has disturbed vision, or for aesthetic reasons. Regarding the treatment of red and itchy eyes doctors can give steroids or anti-histamines to relieve symptoms. But for treatment using herbal medicines there is no literature that discusses this, so it is best to consult with an ophthalmologist about the problem.
At this time all you can do is:
Avoid direct sun exposure for a long time.
Use glasses when you leave the house to reduce exposure to dust, smoke, etc.
Get enough rest, and take care of your lifestyle.
Avoid smoking and alcohol consumption.
Consult your eye condition regularly to monitor the progress of the pterygium.
That's all the answers I gave, more and less I apologize.
Thank you, good luck always .. :)
