Surgical treatment of hyperopia

There are several types of surgical correction of hyperopia at. Laser vision correction in farsightedness is considered the most common and effective method of correcting vision. Using the laser changes the shape of the cornea, it becomes more prominent, better able to refract the rays. The method is used for long-sightedness does not exceed + 3D.

  • Radial keratotomy - drawing notches on the periphery of the cornea. During corneal scarring changes its shape, which leads to an increase in its refractive power. It is used for hyperopia up to + 5D.
  • Keratoplasty - reshaping the cornea with the help of donor tissue. It can be used with any degrees of hyperopia.
  • Refractive lens replacement with an artificial one. The method is best suited for the treatment of presbyopia, which is often combined with cataract (clouding of the lens). It also lets you get rid of a high degree of farsightedness.
  • Implantation of phakic lens - in addition to the eye tissue is implanted artificial lens, amplifying the refractive power of the eye. More suitable for the treatment of hyperopia in young and middle-aged who have no significant violations of the accommodation. This operation can be performed on an outpatient basis.


Treatment of hyperopia at home

What can be done at home to improve vision at long sight? Quite a lot: to reduce eye strain by using selected ophthalmologist wearing glasses or contact lenses, adherence of the day, the alternation of motor activity and rest, a special regime for the view.

Complications of cataract

In some cases, the development of cataracts stops at certain stages, but it never goes away on its own. If progressive cataract or cataract in the later stages of development is left untreated, it can lead to blindness. Cataract is the most common cause of vision loss in people over 55 years old. Fortunately, it can almost always be cured by surgery, but the operation can also cause complications, such as:

Endophthalmitis or intraocular infection. Surgeons are doing everything possible to avoid infection in the course of the operation. In addition, immediately after surgery, patients are given antibiotic eye drops, they must be used within a few weeks, to prevent infections. However, despite all these precautions, approximately one out of three thousand cataract surgery leads to Endophthalmitis. Its symptoms include severe eye redness, pain, sensitivity to light and blurred vision. Sometimes symptoms occur within a few hours after the operation, and in some cases - just a few days later. If the patient developed endophthalmitis, it is usually prescribed injections of antibiotics to limit the spread of infection. Sometimes, to quickly get rid of the infection requires additional surgery;

Cystoid macular edema. The macula or yellow spot - is the area of ​​maximum visual acuity in the retina. Sometimes after cataract surgery Cataract surgery - surgery  Cataract surgery - surgery
   inflammatory processes lead to the fact that there is fluid accumulates, causing vision deteriorates. This complication is called cystoid macular edema. For its treatment usually used steroids or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Sight restored after a few weeks or even months after the start of treatment.


Cataracts in diabetes

In a particular age cataract develops a large part of the people, but in diabetics the likelihood of the disease by 60% above the average. Furthermore, diabetics can develop cataracts at an earlier age than others, and progress much faster. Cataract Treatment of such patients may be complicated by the presence of other eye diseases associated with diabetes, such as diabetic retinopathy. It is important to identify as early as possible and treat cataracts How to treat cataracts - if the picture fails  How to treat cataracts - if the picture fails
   diabetic - they will need to undergo regular medical examinations, and consult a doctor if they notice a significant deterioration of vision.


Glaucoma and cataracts

The combination of these two diseases in one person is very common and is more dangerous than each of them individually. Before we talk about the features of the treatment of these patients, it is necessary to say a few words about what is cataract and glaucoma Glaucoma - a perspective possible blindness  Glaucoma - a perspective possible blindness
 . Cataracts - a clouding of the eye's lens, which is associated with damage to the structure of proteins inside the lens. Glaucoma is a group of diseases in which tissue injury occurs eyes and optic nerve and the intraocular pressure becomes too high. Before you assign a particular method of surgical treatment, the physician must take into account all the possible side effects that may result from the removal of the lens in people with glaucoma or that type. Failure to do so the physician can lead to serious complications including loss of vision.

Typically, doctors try to select operations, which are required for a very small incision, and in which there are minimal tissue damage. This reduces the likelihood of a sharp increase in intraocular pressure after surgery. In addition, in the postoperative period of patients with glaucoma patients should be very carefully monitor their condition, and often pass examinations. If the operation was performed, when the glaucoma is not yet managed to cause significant damage to the tissues of the eye, in most cases, recovery is successful. However, in some cases, after the operation marked complications such as reduced field of vision, decreased visual acuity, increased intraocular pressure.


How to prevent cataracts

Until now it has been proved that the prevention of cataracts may prevent the development of this disease. However, it is believed that the following recommendations help slow the progression of the disease:

  • In sunny weather, wear hats, wide-brimmed hats, and sunglasses;
  • Stop smoking;
  • That's right, eat balanced;
  • Avoid sunbeds;
  • If possible, abstain from taking steroids;
  • If you have diabetes, do everything possible for you to keep your blood sugar Blood sugar - one of the main indicators of human health  Blood sugar - one of the main indicators of human health
