The View Feels Shaded When Looking Far Away?
Hello good morning, I want to ask. I have minus eyes, but when I look at the moon, the moon looks more than one. Is it included in the minus eye or is it a characteristic of cylindrical eyes? But I don’t experience any other cylindrical eye symptoms such as seeing shadows in writing or seeing straight lines become slanted.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Patients with myopia (nearsightedness, minus eyes) will generally have vision problems in the form of difficulty in observing distant objects, which are blurry. It is also possible for people with myopia to see distant objects as shading, but these complaints are generally not so obvious that they cause complaints like yours.
The sensation of seeing the image of an object more than 1 is called diplopia. This condition can arise one of them due to astigmatism, or often also referred to as cylindrical eyes. The cause is the surface of the cornea of the eye that is not perfect, causing interference with object refraction. Not all people with astigmatism will experience other complaints as you mentioned. Therefore, it is necessary to carry out an objective examination to evaluate it.
In addition to astigmatism, diplopia can also arise due to other factors, including:
Corneal disorders, eg keratoconus (thin and cone-shaped cornea), infection (eg due to Herpes), scar tissue formation, dry eyes
Disorders of the lens, such as cataracts
Disorders of the muscles, eg due to myasthenia gravis, Graves' disease
Nerve disorders, for example due to multiple sclerosis, Guillain Barre syndrome, diabetes
Disorders of the brain, for example due to stroke, cerebral aneurysm, infection, tumor, migraine, and so on
We recommend that you go directly to an ophthalmologist for further examination. Doctors can perform a visual acuity examination, slit lamp, or even other supporting tests, such as ophthalmoscopy, CT scan, and so on. Subsequent treatment will be tailored to the conditions underlying your complaint. If it is true that you have astigmatism, then giving special glasses or contact lenses, even surgery can be an option.
Hope it helps ya..
