Astigmatism often during pregnancy has no effect on the state of women. But if astigmatism
Astigmatism - lenses, glasses or surgery?
accompanied by short-sightedness (myopia), a high degree, it can be dangerous. Tension during labor may pose a threat to retinal detachment, which in turn often leads to blindness.
Astigmatism - a violation of the right spherical shape of the cornea or lens. When such violations on the retina is formed several meridians refraction of rays of light and a few tricks on the retina, resulting in the image of the object will be blurred.
Most women suffering from astigmatism, worried how they will be held pregnancy and childbirth. To answer this question, a woman should be examined. The fact that the astigmatism can be of different kinds. Pregnancy and astigmatism - this is not always a risk. In most cases, astigmatism does not affect the pregnancy and pregnancy also does not have the function of the negative impact. But short-sighted (myopic), astigmatism view of a woman may be at risk.
Astigmatism is always combined with nearsightedness or farsightedness. Simple or complex farsighted (hyperopic), astigmatism can not threaten complications during pregnancy. Simple and complex nearsighted (myopic), and mixed (myopic and hyperopic), astigmatism may be complicated by a full or partial retinal detachment
Retinal detachment - it is not necessary to delay the operation
What is myopic astigmatism and what is dangerous during pregnancy
Pregnancy - is a condition that may be complicated by late toxicosis (preeclampsia), one of the signs of which is high blood pressure. When myopia is an increase of the eyeball, resulting in a stretchable membrane and its blood vessels. This leads to malnutrition retina because of which appear on its surface defects can occur even retinal detachment. Retinal detachment leads to a sharp deterioration of vision and even blindness.
An increase in blood pressure danger of retinal detachment in high myopia astigmatism is greatly increased. That is why women who suffer from myopic astigmatism
Myopic astigmatism - a combination of astigmatism and nearsightedness
high, not always allowed to become pregnant.
Myopic astigmatism and childbirth
During childbirth muscular tension also creates a threat of retinal detachment. Therefore, at high degrees of myopia astigmatism delivery is often Policy Pay by Caesarean section.
Retinal detachment - is a condition in which the retina loses contact with the choroid and departs from it. Under normal conditions retina is held at the choroid by connecting their cells of the choroid. What matters is also the intraocular pressure from the vitreous (jelly-like substance that fills the space between the retina and the lens). In retinal detachment occurs a reduction or distortion of, and in some cases, and its total loss.
Symptoms of retinal detachment
The first sign of retinal detachment is the emergence of sparks or lightning before his eyes, which are called photopsia.
Images of objects thus can further bend and sway even compared with the usual state of view.
Another sign of retinal detachment is the appearance of floaters before the eyes. Floaters may be a single, but often several. In some cases, they are like a veil of obscure vision.
What if during pregnancy or childbirth began retinal detachment
If there is a suspicion of retinal detachment, a pregnant woman should be immediately hospitalized. Procrastination can lead to complete and irreversible blindness, as at the time of retinal detachment liquid, which is formed at the same time, slowly (and sometimes very quickly) separates the retina from the choroid, and the dying nerve cells of the retina, which makes the process irreversible.
First aid for retinal detachment is the operation of welding the retina and choroid using a specially-induced aseptic (without infection) inflammation. The operation is performed with a laser.
Thus, pregnancy and astigmatism - is not always dangerous. The real threat to the health of the pregnant woman arises in myopic or mixed astigmatism
Mixed astigmatism - a violation of
. Therefore, when suspected astigmatism woman should undergo a full examination in order to know exactly what the pregnancy of her life and health is not threatened.
