Myopia is more likely to glaucoma. How to find it early

Abstract: because the sclera of high myopia becomes longer and the elasticity decreases significantly, when there is high intraocular pressure, the conscious symptoms are not obvious or asymptomatic, which can not attract the attention of patients.

according to Reuters Chinese website: research shows that people with myopia are about twice as likely to suffer from glaucoma as people without myopia. More than 2 million people over the age of 40 in the United States suffer from glaucoma.

and

glaucoma can damage the optic nerve and gradually weaken vision. Although there are drugs and surgery to treat glaucoma, none of these methods can restore vision. Klein said the study only showed that myopia and glaucoma often occur at the same time, not another cause. Some studies cannot be compared because the subjects belong to different ages or races.

in view of this situation, how can we detect glaucoma early? What are the early manifestations of glaucoma?

how to find

glaucoma in the early stage? Vision gradually decreases, and the correction of optometry and glasses vision is less than 1.0 (logarithmic visual acuity chart is 5.0). This situation is more common, especially for those with high myopia, they often have headache and eye swelling after wearing appropriate glasses. Because the sclera of high myopia becomes longer and the elasticity decreases significantly, when there is high intraocular pressure, the conscious symptoms are not obvious or asymptomatic, which can not attract the attention of patients. Doctors are also easy to miss diagnosis, but the damage of visual function is becoming more and more serious. (visual impairment includes: decreased vision, reduced visual field, etc.).

● iridescence occurs when watching the lights at night, that is, colorful halos appear next to the lights, like a rainbow in the sky after rain. This is due to the increase of intraocular pressure and corneal edema.

● eye distension, headache and blurred vision, especially when you are excited or stay in the dark for too long (such as angry, watching movies and television or working in the dark room), the above symptoms can appear and can be relieved after rest. This is an early symptom of angle closure glaucoma, also known as small attack of glaucoma. After repeated occurrence, severe eye pain, headache Visual acuity drops sharply, accompanied by nausea, vomiting and other symptoms. Sometimes it can be misdiagnosed as acute gastroenteritis and cerebrovascular disease.

● presbyopia occurs prematurely, such as presbyopia before the age of 40 (but it should be distinguished from presbyopia earlier in hyperopia). Especially for women, the degree of presbyopia changes rapidly and glasses need to be changed frequently, which shows that it is related to decreased eye regulation and is directly proportional to the degree of early glaucoma lesions.
