Why At The Age Of 41 The Right Eye Is Blurry And Like There Is White Inside?
Hello …. I am 41 years old, my right eye is blurry … like there is white in it … what’s that name can’t see anymore
Good evening, thanks for the question
Complaints of blurred vision accompanied by vision such as white shadows covered in individuals over the age of 40 years need to be suspected as a condition of senile cataract. Cataract is a clouding of the lens that causes a sharp decrease in vision. Cataracts are most often related to the degeneration process
lens in patients over the age of 40 years (senile cataract).
Generally, patients complain that vision decreases slowly as if covered by smoke / mist. Risk factors for senile cataract include:
1. Age more than 40 years
2. History of systemic diseases, such as diabetes mellitus
3. Use of eye drops with steroid content
4. The habit of smoking and sun exposure
The diagnosis is made through symptoms and physical examination where a decrease in vision is not corrected with pinhole and lens opacity.
Patients who have been diagnosed with cataracts and cause significant vision problems need to be treated by an ophthalmologist to get further management.
The main therapy for cataracts is cataract surgery. Cataract surgery provides satisfactory results for patients so that quality of life also improves. Other possible diagnoses of similar symptoms that you feel are glaucoma (high pressure on the eyeball) or uveitis (inflammation of eye tissue).
Carry out further consultations with an ophthalmologist for further evaluation.
That's all, hopefully you can help
