Treatment of eyes with diabetes by folk remedies
Mar 28, 2018
Eye damage in diabetes is called angioretinopathy. The presence or absence of angioretinopathy, as well as its stage, can be determined by the oculist when examining the fundus. In this case, he notes the presence or absence of hemorrhages, newly formed retinal vessels and other changes. To prevent or suspend changes on the fundus, it is necessary first of all to lead to a normal blood sugar content.
For the treatment of anti-retinopathy, drugs and surgical treatment are used. Each patient with diabetes should be examined twice a year from the oculist in a planned manner. For any visual impairment, this should be done immediately.
In diabetes mellitus, all structures of the eye are affected to varying degrees.
1. In metabolic disorders in patients with diabetes mellitus, a phenomenon such as a change in the refractive capacity of the eye tissues is often observed.
Quite often in people with diabetes mellitus of this type, when the disease is first diagnosed against a background of high blood sugar, myopia develops. At the beginning of insulin therapy with a sharp decrease in the level of glycemia in some patients, hyperopia occurs. Children sometimes lose the ability to read and distinguish small objects at close range. Over time, with the normalization of blood sugar levels, these phenomena disappear, vision is normalized, so it is usually not recommended to select glasses for the initial detection of diabetes within the first 2-3 months.
Patients who follow all the instructions of the attending physician do not experience such dramatic changes in the refractive power of the eye. They are characterized by a gradual decrease in the adaptive ability of the eye. These patients begin to use reading glasses before their peers.
2. Quite often, diabetic patients suffer from innervation of the eye tissues, which leads to disruption of the tone and work of the muscles, including the oculomotor muscles. This is manifested in the appearance of the lower eyelid, the development of strabismus, doubling, a decrease in the amplitude of the movement of the eyeballs. Sometimes the development of such symptoms is accompanied by pain in the eye, headaches. More often similar changes arise at for a long time suffering a diabetes.
This complication occurs infrequently and does not depend on the severity of diabetes( often occurs in diabetes mellitus).With the development of such manifestations, it is necessary to consult not only the endocrinologist, but also the neurologist. Treatment can be long( up to 6 months), but the prognosis is favorable - recovery of functions is observed in almost all patients.
3. Changes in the cornea occur at the cellular level and can not manifest themselves clinically. But when carrying out eye operations, this structure reacts more strongly to surgical manipulations, heals for a long time and slowly restores its transparency.
4. According to the doctors, among people with diabetes, the usual glaucoma and increased intraocular pressure occur more often than among the rest of the population. So far, no explanation has been found for this phenomenon.
5. Cataract is a clouding of the lens in any layers and any intensity. With diabetes, often there is a so-called diabetic cataract - flaky opacification of the posterior capsule of the lens. In the elderly, the age type of cataract is more typical, when the crystalline lens becomes turbid, diffuse, almost uniformly in all layers, sometimes opacities have a yellowish or brown tinge.
Quite often, opacities are very gentle, translucent, do not reduce vision or reduce slightly. And this condition can remain stable for many years. With intensive opacifications, with rapid progression of the process, it is possible to perform an operation to remove the cloudy lens.
Even 15 years ago, diabetes mellitus was a contraindication to conducting operations to remove cataracts followed by implantation of an artificial lens. Previously existing technology offered to wait for the complete "maturation" of cataracts, when vision fell almost to light perception. Modern techniques allow you to remove cataracts at any degree of maturity and through minimal incisions, to implant high-quality artificial lenses.
In the early stages of cataract, when visual acuity is not reduced and surgical intervention is not shown, oculists recommend patients to dig in vitamin drops. The purpose of the treatment is to support the nutrition of the lens and prevent its further turbidity. They are not able to dissolve the existing opacities, because the changes in the lens are associated with irreversible changes in proteins that have lost their unique structure and transparency.
