White Shadow On The Left Eye?
Hi “I am a 17 year old boy still in school, I am surprised that my left eye is farsighted but the right one is not after I flashlight the left eye is white and white. What is that?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Nearsightedness is divided into two, namely nearsightedness / myopia (cannot see far) and farsightedness / hypermetropy (cannot see closely). With your age, we assume that nearsightedness you mean nearsightedness / myopia.
Myopia in one eye is very likely to occur, especially because the abilities of the two eyes are not always the same. Many people have minus differences in both eyes, and this is normal. However, if the difference is too great, it is most likely called lazy eye or amblyopia. Among the causes of amblyopia are:
Squint or strabismus Refractive disorders such as myopia and hypermetropy that we mentioned earlier Cataracts in children, which are triggered by certain viral or bacterial infections
Our advice is that you should have your eyes checked by an ophthalmologist to do an examination of your two eyes, how many minus your left and right eyes, and whether this includes amblyopia or not. Likewise with white spots that you mean, which can be caused due to damage to certain structures in the eye. What is important for you to understand is that in diagnosing an eye disorder, you need a history and direct physical examination, so that what we say may not fully describe your condition. By going to an eye doctor, you will get more complete information about your eye condition now.
Meanwhile, avoid wearing contact lenses, rubbing your eyes, or being in dusty or sandy places to avoid infection of the eyes. Do not force your eyes too long in front of the monitor screen, and keep the visibility from the object you are viewing at least 30 cm. Increase consumption of vegetables such as carrots that contain vitamin A for the good of your eyes. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
