Glaucoma is an eye disease marked by abnormally high pressure in your eye. This pressure is commonly caused by a build up of aqueous fluid because of an obstruction to your eyeballs drainage.
Sustained or sudden pressure within your eyeball causes damage to your optic nerve. Any disturbance of your optic nerve leads to diminished sight and blindness.
Glaucoma eye disease is broken into various types with varying symptoms. The most common being primary open-angle glaucoma, followed by acute angle-closure glaucoma.
Primary open-angle glaucoma slowly progresses with very little noticeable symptoms. As this form of glaucoma begins to cause optic nerve damage you’ll likely experience: low vision, loss gradual peripheral vision, loss tunnel vision in advanced stage
Acute angle-closure glaucoma is a medical emergency. And if any form of glaucoma is left untreated, this eye disease will progress into blindness.
Glaucoma isn’t curable. And the damage that’s already been done can’t be reversed. However, any future peripheral, tunnel or total vision loss can be allayed with treatment.
Regular eye examines that measure your eyeball pressure is key to early diagnosis and treatment in order to minimize glaucoma’s vision loss.
And don’t put off having an exam until you lose your peripheral to this tunnel vision
causing eye pressure disease. I hope that helps a little, I am no specialist in eyes, but have taken care of many in the ED. Followup with the specialist is imperative and doing the treatments that they prescribe is also a must. Good luck to you
WHAT YOU TOLD ME, ALREADY I KNOW. PRESSURE IS REDUCED TO 13 IN BOTH EYES. THERE IS ANY HOMOPATHIC TREATMENT TO REMOVE CLOUDINESS FROM MY LEFT EYE ?
To combat the free radicals from oxidative stress antioxidants have been suggested. Primary sources include polyphenol compounds including resveratrol. Others antioxidants are coenzyme Q10, turmeric, dark chocolate, green tea and ginkgo biloba.
Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is the primary antioxidant found in green tea. It may help in not only cardiovascular disease and macular degeneration but also in glaucoma. It has been shown to be beneficial in protecting ganglion cells following injury. It also has anti-inflammatory and antiangiogenic properties. It would be prudent to drink decaffeinated green tea to avoid the caffeine related side effects which could actually counter the helpful effects of green tea since caffeine can possibly increase intraocular pressure.
As far as treatment for your cloudy eye, Reducing eye pressure is one of the primary treatment goals for this condition. So any alternative treatments with herbs, nutritional supplements or other meds to reduce your IOP will help your problem also.
I hope this helps you or at least answers your question.
THIS IS NOT MY QUESTION. PLEASE READ ABOVE WHAT I WROTE TO YOU. PRESURE IS NOT A PROBLEM. IT IS ALREADY REDUCED TO MORMAL 13 IN BOTH EYES WITH 3 EYE DROPS WITH NO SIDE EFFECTS SINCE OVER SEVERAL MONTHS.. MY LEFT EYE IS CLOUDY THAT IS NOT GOING AWAY. I AM LOOKING FOR ANY EFFECTIVE TREATMENT TO REMOVE CLOUDINESS FROM MY LEFT EYE. I WILL CONTNUE TAKING DROPS TO MAINTAIN EYE PRESSURE NORMAL.
NO LASER TREATMENT WAS GIVEN TO REDUCE PRESSURE. PLEASE NOTE THAT BEFORE GOING TO EYE DOCTOR APPAETLY I DID NOT HAVE ANY CLOUDINESS PROBLEM IN MY LEFT EYE. AFTER TAKING DROPS FOR A FEW WEEKS, IT DEVELOPED SUDDENLY.
FIRST I WENT TO GENERAL EYE DOCTOR. AS I TOLD YOU, INITIALLY I DID NOT WANT HAVE CLOUDINESS PROBLEM IN MY LEFT EYE. SHE COULD REDUCE PRESSURE IN BOTH EYES TO NORMAL 16. WHEN CLOUDINESS DEVELOPED IN MY LEFT EYE, THEN SHE REFERRED ME TO GLAUCOMA SPECIALIST. INITIALLY, HE CONTINUED WITH THE SAME 2 DROPS AS GENERAL EYE DOCTOR WAS GIVING. AFTERWARDS HE ADDED ONE MORE DROP. THIS REDUCED PRESSURE IN BOTH EYES 10 13 BUT CLOUDINESS DID NOT GO AWAY. HE SAYS, THIS IS DUE TO NERVE DAMAGE AND THIS WILL NOT GO AWAY. I FEEL CLOUDINESS IN MY LEFT EYE ALLTHE TIME, IT LOOKS, THERE IS TRANSPARENT CURTAIN IN FRONT OF MY LEFT EYE. WITH RIGHT EYE CLOSED , VISION WITH LEFT EYE IS CLOUDY AND I CAN SEE ONLY PARTIALLY. PART OF VISION IS CLEAR AND PART OF VISION IS CLOUDY.
