How to judge myopic macular degeneration

Abstract: how to judge myopic macular degeneration? Ophthalmologists pointed out that the macula is located in the posterior pole of the retina. It is a concave area without blood vessels in the center, with a horizontal diameter of about 1.5-1.75mm, which is named because it is rich in lutein. It is the most sensitive part of the retina., There are more than 300 million myopic patients in China, including more than 10 million pathological myopic patients. It is one of the important blinding eye diseases. The direct disease causing blindness is macular disease. Many patients can’t help asking what is macula?, How to judge myopic macular degeneration? Ophthalmologists pointed out that the macula is located in the posterior pole of the retina. It is a concave area without blood vessels in the center, with a horizontal diameter of about 1.5-1.75mm, which is named because it is rich in lutein. It is the most sensitive part of the retina. Because the cone cells in the retina responsible for strong light (bright vision) and color vision are mainly concentrated in the macular area, and the photoreceptor cells in other parts of the retina are called rod cells, which are responsible for weak light perception (dark vision) and colorless vision. Myopic maculopathy includes retroscleral staphyloma, diffuse or plaque macular retinal choroidal atrophy, lacquer crack, Fuchs macula, macular hemorrhage, neovascular membrane, macular hole and retinal detachment caused by it. The main clinical manifestations of maculopathy are shadow in front of eyes and visual deformation, such as becoming smaller and smaller Far, vision loss, or even complete loss of central vision. So what are the symptoms of macular disease?, For the symptoms of myopic macular disease, experts remind: once myopia develops to macular disease, it will cause serious damage to the central visual function, and the treatment is difficult. It is recommended to see a doctor as soon as possible in the following cases., 1. Vision loss: the visual objects are blurred, the visual center becomes gray and dark, and even the central vision is lost., 2. Flying mosquito disease: there are small dark shadows floating in front of you. For moderate myopia or above, floaters can appear due to vitreous liquefaction and turbidity.,

there are more than 300 million myopic patients in China, including more than 10 million pathological myopic patients. It is one of the important blinding eye diseases. The direct disease causing blindness is macular disease. Many patients can’t help asking what is macula?

The main clinical manifestation of macular disease is that there is shadow in front of the eyes, the visual object is deformed, such as smaller, farther, decreased vision, and even complete loss of central vision. So what are the symptoms of macular disease?

symptoms of myopic macular disease

experts remind: once myopia develops to macular disease, it will cause serious damage to central visual function, and the treatment is difficult. It is recommended to see a doctor as soon as possible.

1. Vision loss: blurred visual objects, gray and dark visual center, and even loss of central vision.

2. Flying mosquito disease: there are small dark shadows floating in front of you. For moderate myopia or above, floaters can appear due to vitreous liquefaction and turbidity.

3. Visual object deformation: the visual object becomes larger, smaller, or becomes wavy, with fracture, or blurred image and partial vacancy.

4. Flash sensation: it often occurs before retinal detachment.

5. Exacerbation of exophthalmos: the axis of high myopia increases gradually, the anterior and posterior diameter of the eyeball increases continuously, and the eyeball gradually protrudes.
