Herbal Treatment For Peripheral Vision Loss
How should i cure myself of peripheral vision loss.I am 78 years old and 10 yrs ago , i had both my eyes operated for cataract by the lasik laser .?
Peripheral: There are several reasons for peripheral vision loss-- they include glaucoma, retinal diseases, trauma, and cataract surgery. The implant placed inside the eye is smaller in diameter than the cataract. Thus, the effective viewing area is smaller, and the peripheral vision is reduced. Glaucoma is treated with eye drops, laser, or surgery. Retinal diseases are treated depending on the cause... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When you look at someone's face, you can still see their hand, even though you are not looking directly at it. When you are walking through a doorway, you are not looking at the sides, or looking directly at the threshold, but you see it through your peripheral vision. Anything outside of your direct focus spot, is considered peripheral. Which can be measured ...Read more
I'm 58 recently diagnosed w/glaucoma & beginnings of peripheral vision loss. Please explain what aggressive treatment would mean for me?
Treatment: Of glaucoma is individualized. For each, a target pressure is set depending on the untreated pressure (usually 30% lower). Then the ophthalmologist adds treatment until this is reached. More aggressive treatment means setting a lower goal and closer follow up. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Dr says glaucoma caught early w/30% nerve damage & minimal peripheral vision loss. Begun treatment. Only 58 yrs. Old. What is long-term prognosis?
Dr says glaucoma caught early w/30% nerve damage & some peripheral vision loss. Said w/out treatment could've been blind in 7 yrs. Can go that fast?
Depends: It depends on many factors, but the general rule of thumb is that it the higher the pressure, the faster vision loss can occur. The goal of glaucoma treatment is to lower the pressure to the point that vision loss does not progress or slows to the point that you will never go blind during your lifetime. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Glaucoma 30% nerve damage with some peripheral vision loss. Have started treatment. Dr said at 50% damage i would notice vision loss. Sound right?
Recently diagnosed with glaucoma. No peripheral vision loss. 30% optic nerve damage. With treatment will nerve damage cause loss of vision?
Probably not: Glaucoma is readily treated with anti-pressure medication which should prevent any further damage in almost all cases. This is handled by ophthalmologists (you are not seeing an optometrist i hope?) who deal with this daily. There is a step ladder of treatments -- medication, laser, surgery to prevent further damage which can be quite effective. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Recently diagnosed. Dr says I have some peripheral vision loss although i don't notice it. How fast will this vision loss progress?
I was detected with glaucoma, earlier i was having peripheral vision loss which i neglected that advanced to complete vision loss. what should i do?
Continue treatment: Obviously you discovered the vision loss and hopefully are seeing an ophthalmologist (not an optometrist) for treatment. Your goal, since you have lost vision in one eye is to be very diligent with treatment for the remaining eye to prevent it losing any more vision. The loss from the blind eye, in glaucoma, unfortunately is permanent. ...Read more
