Can An Eye Patch Help Treat Central Serous Retinopathy
Can vigorous exercise be a contributing factor in idiopathic central serous retinopathy? Can I continue to exercise while recovering from this?
Depends: If you had photodynamic therapy (pdt) with verteporfin (visudyne) as I suspect, then you can not have any sunlight or uv exposure until your retinal specialist says so. You could get severe skin burns if you do.
What foods/drink should I avoid when recovering from central serous retinopathy? I've stopped nasal sprays and stress.
Corticosteroids: Most cases of csr occur in men between the ages of 25 and 55. Most of the time there is no obvious cause and most cases improve without treatment. Stress and cortisone type steroids are the most common cause when a cause can be identified. There is some evidence that stimulant type drugs like decongestants can be a cause. Theoretically, caffeine falls in this group, and should be used moderately.See 1 more doctor answer
Unknown: This is a condition of vascular serum leakage in the macular area occurring most commonly in the middle years. It is painless but disturbs the vision, sometimes significantly. No procedure or medication seems to help except in the uncommon cases when a single vessel can be identified as leaking - then it can be laser sealed. Otherwise we ask the patient to just wait it out.
My father has Central Serous retinopathy now he have blurred vision, Dr gave vein injection & askd to attend laser, may I knw will he get vision back?
Hope Springs Eternal: Here is a quote for you: "The prognosis for CSR is generally excellent. Whilst immediate vision loss may be as poor as 20/200 in the affected eye, clinically over 90% of patients regain 20/30 vision or better within 6 months. Great! However "The disease can re-occur causing progressive vision loss."and" There is also a chronic form" and prognosis is less favorable. Let's hope he's in the 90% range
Diag with DM retinopathy, macular edema and scattered hemes and my eyesight is -225/-200 in R eye and -200/-100 in L eye. I cant find wht #'s mean
Eyes: Your eye doctor MUST tell you all the current and potential problems with your eyes and then make appropriate recommendations.
Absolutely: There's the old saying that the eyes are the window to the soul. It's very true that may diseases are diagnosed by findings in the eye. If your eye dr. Saw changes in your retina caused by hypertension, it definitely raises your possibility of stroke. With 750, 000 strokes happening each year, you need prompt evaluation and treatment. See your family md as soon as you can. Good luck!See 1 more doctor answer
If I have type 1 diabetes. Would I still be able to get surgery with slight retinopathy to the eyes?
Surgery: You don't mention the type of surgery you need. Ideally to have surgery your blood pressure should be well controlled
Retina: Diabetic retinopathy causes bleeding in the retina from leaky damaged blood vessels. The body tries to grow in new blood vessels (neovascularization), and these can bleed as well. Some of these vessels can grow elsewhere in the eye such as the angle / iris and lead to elevated eye pressure.See 3 more doctor answers
Exam and testing: Dilated fundus exam--diabetic and hypertensive retinopathy typically have different appearances, however they can appear similar with bleeding and ischemic areas of the retina. Areas requiring treatment to save vision (other than improving the underlying disease) can be found using imaging and angiogram diagnostic tests.See 1 more doctor answer
I have retinopathy and I've had laser surgery on both eyes. What can I use to soothe my dry eyes?
Tear replacement: The underlying retinopathy with laser treatment occurred at the back of the eye and is independent of the eye dryness. That being a separate issue, can be treated with over the counter tear replacement lubricants (not the kind that say gets the red out) supplemented with ointment at night. Your retinal specialist can assist with this choice.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes if present: The dilated eye exam is exactly how we inspect the retina, optic nerve, blood vessels, and other parts for diseases. So if a person has diabetes and it is affecting their retina, we will find it and if necessary treat the complications. As it turns out, not having retinopathy (a good thing) doesn't mean that you don't have diabetes. Your primary doctor determines that.See 2 more doctor answers
