Treatment For Floaters In The Eye That Does Not Heal?
Good afternoon, I’m sorry I want to ask. Recently I saw floaters in my right and left eyes, then I had a chance to see a doctor and was given the drug tetea vitrolenta. However, I feel the floaters are getting more and more, in addition I see a rainbow ring at night, I also sometimes complain of aching eyes and dizziness, when I search on the internet, it leads to glaucoma. However, when the next control, I have told my complaints and done funduscopy, but not checked for eye pressure, I was also only given eye drops for dry eyes only. Oh yes, I also suffer from myopia and cylinders. What I want to ask, is my complaint leading to glaucoma or maybe it can cause other problems, right? Thank you
Hello Sari, Thank you for the question.
Floaters are black shadows in the field of view of someone who also moves when the eyes move. This black shadow can look like spots, lines, or other shapes. Floaters are more clearly seen when looking at a white background or looking in bright places.
The inside of the eyeball is a liquid (called vitreous) which functions to keep the shape of the eyeball. As you age, the thickness of this fluid can be reduced and form lumps. This clot is captured by the retina of the eye as a black shadow. Apart from age, floaters can also occur due to infection, bleeding in the eyeball, inflammation of the back of the eye (posterior uveitis), or tears in the retina. In general, glaucoma does not cause symptoms of floaters.
To determine the cause further examination by an eye doctor is needed. If this complaint has not been resolved, you can re-consult with your eye doctor or you can consult with other eye doctors to ask for other opinions about your symptoms. The doctor needs to do an examination of your eyes, including visual acuity, funduscopy, and slit lamps. Further treatment will be given by a doctor according to the condition that you are experiencing. In the meantime, please maintain your eye health by always maintaining a comfortable reading distance and making sure the room lighting is comfortable for your eyes.
I hope this helps.
