I have cataract and glaucoma. Which one to be treated first?
EXCIMER Clinic offers in cases when cataract is accompanied by glaucoma to have a single combined two-stage surgery. The first one is non-penetrating deep sclerectomy to treat glaucoma, it is followed by ultrasonic phacoemulsification with an intraocular lens implantation to treat cataract. So the modern technology allows to manage two diseases simultaneously: cataract and glaucoma. Such surgeries are performed without admission to a hospital, under local eyedrop anaesthesia, and take 15 to 20 minutes only. Patients can very soon come back to their daily life after the surgery.
My son was diagnosed to have amblyopia. How this disease could have developed?
Amblyopia is a disease manifested by resistant vision acuity reduction in one or both eyes. As a rule amblyopia is developed with strabismus, high degrees of far-sightedness, astigmatism, myopia, but sometimes it may occur without “obvious reasons”.
Of course there are reasons, but only detailed diagnostic testing can discover the causes, as they are very much individual. For instance there may be cases when amblyopia can develop with refractive difference in the eyes of only one dioptre, while in another kid the brain can manage even the 4 dioptre difference. To manage the condition it is necessary to activate the “lazy” eye. If amblyopia is congenital, the child does not know that vision can be different and finds the imagery normal. Therefore the child will not complain. The condition can be revealed only through a comprehensive testing of the complete visual system. The period when a patient keeps feeling amblyopia is very short, while the time-span is best for the disease management. Treatment should never be put off! And doctors instructions should be strictly observed.
Can one find symptoms of cataract development himself?
At early stages cataract develops often without any signs. Only a doctor assisted by modern equipment can diagnose it then. Often starting cataract does not affect central optical area and vision quality is not disturbed for some time. However as it progresses some mistakenly guess it is age-related myopia. Further lines, strokes and spots start flashing before eyes, halos are seen around highlighted objects. And difficulties in reading or e.g. sewing are occurring, In the course of cataract maturing the pupil colour changes from black to white.
