People with high myopia are prone to retinal detachment

Abstract: Patients with high myopia should go to the hospital for fundus examination or B-ultrasound, preferably once every six months. In case of obvious vision loss, especially lightning like flash feeling, or conscious of fixed dark shadow covering in front of your eyes, you should go to the hospital for examination as soon as possible to avoid retinal detachment or even blindness., Retinal detachment refers to the adhesion between some parts of the vitreous body and the retina at the back of the eyeball, which pulls the retina from its normal position, just like the separation of wallpaper from the wall., The incidence rate of myopia is high, and the causes of retinal detachment are numerous and complex. Retinal and vitreous diseases can cause retinal detachment. It is worth mentioning that in patients with myopia, the increase of eyeball curvature, elongation of eye axis, gradual expansion of posterior eyeball wall, degeneration, atrophy and thinning of retina are the internal factors of retinal detachment., If the eyeball is directly or indirectly injured, retinal detachment is easy to occur. In addition, cataract patients, the elderly and patients with severe eye trauma are also prone to retinal detachment. Patients with retinal detachment often have symptoms such as dark shadow fluttering or golden flower, visual field defect, visual acuity loss and so on. Retinal detachment is very likely to cause blindness in various eye diseases. Incidence rate of primary retinal detachment is about 10%. Laser surgery closes retinal holes. Retinal detachment is so complicated. What is the treatment? Most patients need surgical treatment. The purpose is to try to close the retinal hole and relieve the traction of vitreous proliferators on the retina, so as to restore the detached retina to its original position. For retinal detachment with holes or extensive degeneration, conservative treatment is ineffective., Scleral buckling, intraocular gas injection and vitrectomy are often used to treat retinal detachment. To perform these operations, doctors must first determine the location of the hole, and then use laser or cryotherapy to close the hole in the retina.,

eyeballs are prone to retinal detachment if they are directly or indirectly injured. In addition, cataract patients, the elderly and patients with severe eye trauma are also prone to retinal detachment.

laser surgery to close retinal holes

retinal detachment is so complicated, what is the treatment? Most patients need surgical treatment. The purpose is to try to close the retinal hole and relieve the traction of vitreous proliferators on the retina, so as to restore the detached retina to its original position. There is no effect if conservative treatment is used for retinal detachment with hole or extensive degeneration. Scleral buckling, intraocular gas injection and vitrectomy are often used in the treatment of retinal detachment by

and

. To perform these operations, doctors must first determine the location of the hole, and then use laser or cryotherapy to close the hole in the retina.

and

it is worth mentioning that after the operation, the shadow or flash will last for a period of time, which is a normal phenomenon and should be taken on time; If bubbles are injected into the eyes, keep a special head position according to the doctor’s requirements. Do not travel or exercise violently without authorization, so as not to cause elevated intraocular pressure and eye damage.

how to prevent retinopathy caused by high myopia?

1. Develop good eye hygiene habits.

for patients with high myopia, when reading or reading the newspaper, in addition to wearing myopia glasses, pay attention to the correct sitting posture, and do not read in places with too strong or dim light. When using the computer, you should pay attention to the combination of work and rest. After 30 minutes, you should look into the distance for 3 minutes, or close your eyes for 5 minutes.

2. Patients with high myopia should review their eyes regularly.

high myopia patients go to the hospital for fundus examination or eye B-ultrasound, preferably once every six months. If the visual acuity decreases obviously, especially the flash feeling like lightning, or there is a fixed shadow covering in front of you, you should go to the hospital for examination as soon as possible to avoid retinal detachment or even blindness.

3. Patients with high myopia should avoid external incentives.

high myopia patients should avoid excessive load or strenuous exercise to prevent eye trauma, so as not to induce retinal detachment or fundus hemorrhage.

retinal detachment is a serious disease. Early detection and early treatment are particularly important, otherwise the best time for treatment will be missed, resulting in blindness. All patients with high myopia, repeated vitreous hemorrhage in the eyes and net off symptoms in one eye should be highly vigilant and go to the hospital for fundus examination regularly. Once there is a shadow, flash or visual field defect in front of them, they should go to the hospital in time to avoid hidden dangers.
