Will The Eye Of The Cylinder Drop To The Child?
Hello, I want to ask if the cylinder eye is derived from heredity or are there other factors? Is it true that cylindrical eyes can cause blindness? And whether the eye of the cylinder will decrease to the child? thanks.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
A cylindrical eye or astigmatism is a refractive disorder that occurs because of the irregular shape and curvature of the corneas or because the lens of the eye is not normal curvature. The main factor that causes this cylindrical eye is genetic (hereditary), so it is true that you say that the cylinder eye can be passed down to your child. Other factors that can cause a cylindrical eye are certain eye diseases, a history of eye injury, or a history of eye surgery (which can change the shape of the cornea or lens of the eye).
Cylinder eyes can cause a decrease in ability (vision becomes more shaded and not too clear), tired eyes, and also headaches (especially when reading for a long time), but will not cause blindness. To overcome the cylindrical eye, you are advised to use glasses or contact lenses. To deal with this disorder permanently, you can consider performing LASIK (laser in situ keratomileusis) or PRK (photorefractive keratectomy) or Orthokeratology (use of contact lenses that can help change the shape of the cornea). Consult further with your ophthalmologist to find out more clearly the best treatment options for you.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
