Why Minus The Left Eye Is Far Greater Than The Right Eye And How Is The Treatment?
Hello Sdr.gina1919, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com. We will explain the questions that you submit to us.
Minus the eye or nearsightedness is a condition where the eye can not see objects that are far away clearly, but can see objects that are close by better. This visual impairment is a refractive disorder that causes decreased visual acuity in the eye where the eye is unable to direct light into the retina properly. Negative eye conditions certainly require therapy, the goal is to improve the ability of the eye to direct light into the retina of the eye, so that the eye's vision becomes normal again, that is by using lenses in the form of glasses, or can use lens implants.
The minus eye gap between the right and left is very far, the right eye has a low level of the minus eye, while the left eye has a moderate level of minus. If this will happen for a long time it can cause other more serious complications such as retinal detachment / retinal detachment, glaucoma and cataracts.
Our advice to your sister is that you should consult with your eye doctor directly, so that he can examine your sister's eyes from the start, and check the minus size of your sister's eyes. Because it is better to determine what the level of minus the eye should be checked by an eye doctor. In addition, if the size has been determined, then the minus eye treatment needs to be done, maybe the doctor will suggest using a lens / glasses or if the level of minus is very lame or very heavy action may be performed in the form of operations such as PRK (photorefractive keratectomy), LASIK (laser in situ keratomileusis) or Lasek (laser epithelial keratomileusis).
Thus we can convey, hopefully our explanation answers your questions. thanks.
