My daughter’s left eye has innate myopia )-6), while the right eye is +1. Is it dangerous?
With such a great difference wearing spectacles is the main treatment procedure in children. You daughter has to wear spectacles, otherwise the left eye may develop resistant vision deterioration. Occlusion (patching) is a procedure recommended in most cases: the better eye is covered for 20-40 minutes one or two times a day for one to 2.5 months period. This procedure should be prescribed and closely watched by your paediatrician ophthalmologist.
After three a child my go for other apparatus myopia treatment procedures. EXCIMER KIDS Clinic has a line-up of modern equipment for this treatment. The therapeutic procedures suggested are: laser, infrared and ultrasonic treatments, laser stimulation, vacuum massage, magneto-therapy, electro-stimulation. The effectiveness of such treatments have been recognised both at home and abroad. The procedures should be treated seriously, scheduled treatments and check-ups are essential for the result. Such systematic approach may ensure treatment long-lasting success. Only combined efforts of doctors and parents may result in happy outcomes.
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.
Why pass computerized diagnostics? Can it discover anything that a doctor from a polyclinic can’t find?
Many eye diseases especially at early stages may develop with no symptoms at all. While the early treatment is most effective in most cases. The modern diagnostics equipment allows to carry out non-contact testing, and the results do not depend on how precisely the patient followed doctor’s instructions. This testing is objective and comprehensive providing complete and true information about size, functioning and structure of the eye bulb for the doctor. The comprehensive computer assisted diagnostics at EXCIMER Clinic includes the following tests: vision acuity evaluation; refraction and intraocular pressure measurements; field of vision examination; ultrasonic testing of eye inner structures (including cases when media is not transparent); corneal shape and refraction power evaluation; retina and optic nerve condition check, and many other parameters. The diagnostic equipment available at EXCIMER Clinic allows doctors to detect refractive abnormalities (myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism), eye refractive media disorders (corneal and crystalline lens opacification) , as well as receptor problems occurring in cases of glaucoma, diabetes and retinal dystrophy. The diagnostic testing results in comprehensive information on the visual system condition, allowing doctors to detect early development stages of most eye disorders and take the most effective measures for treatment.
