Does Elevated Intraocular Pressure Cause Retinal Detachment
The retina is the light sensitive layer in the back of the eye that transmits images to the brain via the optic nerves to create vision. If a hole or tear develops in the retina, eye fluids can separate the retina from underlying layer (choroid) . The most common cause of retinal holes or tears is traction from the vitreous, the clear gel that fils the inside of ...Read more
Possibly: Floaters are usually a natural condition that occurs as the gel that fills the back of the eye forms cracks over time. High blood sugar can lead to damage, abnormal blood vessel growth, and breaks in the small blood vessels in the back of the eye, which can in turn cause bleeding in the eye. You may experience this as floaters. An eye doctor can quickly determine the cause of your floaters. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not likely: Unless the pressure is staggeringly high, there is usually no effect on the vision. Wavy vision should be investigated by your ophthalmologist especially if it is of recent onset. Blood pressure does need control for other reasons (heart, brain) but not for alterations in eye vision. ...Read more
Yes, indeed. Get Rx : Branch and central vein occlusion are a known cause of blurred vision in hypertensive patients. Early treatment of both the hypertension and the vein occlusion is essential because damage to the retina can be irreversible if ignored. Early treatment with growth factor inhibitors and steroids can restore vision. Other types of damage can occur to the retina with chronic high blood pressure. ...Read more
If gas bubble is required in vitrectomy for peeling macular pucker will it raise eye pressure & cause high risk for progression of existing Glaucoma?
SEE your Eye doctor: Are you seeing EYE M.D.?!!He is better person to ask. ...Read more
Yes: Extremely high blood pressures (usually greater than 200 mmhg for the top number) can result in "end organ" damage including changes to the retinal arteries and short-term vision changes. If you're concerned that your high blood pressure is changing your vision, you should see your doctor to discuss treatment options. ...Read more
It does not cause it: Just like within the body there are many parts, although one organ, the eye is very similar with many parts as well. Where floaters occur in the eye is separate from the area where the effects of glaucoma occur, which is the optic nerve. Floaters are typically black spots that appear real like gnats in front of you. Vision loss from glaucoma is like dark patches in vision that don't go away. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not typically!: If the blood pressure really goes high, where it starts causing damage, then there might be black spots that are fixed, but not floating! one may have much fluctuations in vision from high glucose and of coarse in very advanced stages both the high pressures and sugars can cause bleeding in the eye which would be floaters! but that is typically after many years of neglect! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can anterior vitreous detachment occur before pvd? Does it reduce the retinal risks assoc with cataract surgery? Symptoms other than floaters?
Vitreous detachment: May occur at the level of the anterior retina adjacent to an area called the ora serrata. The vitreous may delaminate from the retina at any location, meaning either posterior or anterior at anytime either from trauma or idiopathic. If the vitreous is already detached from the retina, then the risks of a retinal detachment is theoretically reduced. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Baseline pressure is 28 & threshold is 19. No peripheral vision loss minimal optic nerve damage. Want to avoid eye drops.Can slt drop pressure to 19?
Possible: If you want to avoid drops, it is definitely worth trying slt first. Slt is a viable first line treatment for glaucoma. A 30% reduction in pressure is possible, which would bring your pressure down between 19 and 20. Even if you needed drops in addition to slt, you would require less drops to achieve your target pressure. ...Read more
No: Blurring in one eye is typically a problem (from front to back of the visual system) with the tear film, cornea, anterior chamber, lens, vitreous, retina, orbit, optic nerve, and any connection to the visual cortex. Sinus fullness doesn't directly affect vision. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes but possibly: Yes, it can, but that is unlikely. Usually it's something else. Best to get checked out but an ophthalmologist. Also, you should have a blood pressure machine at home so you can check your blood pressure when you develop these episodes. Good luck and feel better. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
58 w/glaucoma, nerve tissue thinning, field vision normal, oct suspicious, pressure reduced from 28 to 16. Is this good?
Good: The first step is that you went to an ophthalmologist. Since glaucoma does not have a pain or symptom at the beginning the patient may not be aware of the problem. Your pressure decreased from 28 to 16 more 40% which is a very good response. Please cont with your treatment and follow up with your ophthalmologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
