Treatment Of Sudden, Permanent Blindness?
Noon. I want to ask . My aunt just went to the doctor about her eyes that couldn’t see in the past 7 years. The doctor said that my aunt’s retina was good. While his nerves are dead. If the eye nerves are dead, is it true that the possibility of seeing it is no longer there? In another sense permanent blind. Are there other ways or alternatives that my aunt should do?
Good evening Annisa,
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Our eyes are made up of the eyeball, retina and eye nerves. Damage to one part of the eye will cause blindness. Blindness can be defined as blind who can see partially (shadow or light) and cannot see at all. Blindness can be temporary or permanent. Your aunt's past medical history may be glaucoma. Glaucoma is increased pressure inside the eyeball that can result in damage to the nerves in the eye. But keep in mind other causes of blindness in your aunt, such as:
The process of macular degeneration due to advancing age Cataracts Blindness due to diabetes or diabetic retinopathy Eye injury Infection As for the history that is important when blindness occurs, include:
Visual acuity before blindness The state of the eyeball, retina and nerves of the eye before blindness occurs. History of blindness in the family History of medications taken It is better to consult an ophthalmologist to get a complete examination. Additional information can also be read: conditions that cause blindness
That's my explanation, hopefully it can answer the question.
