624 Possible Causes for Central Blindness, Progressive Loss of Vision, Retinopathy

  • Macular Degeneration

    Best-corrected visual acuity testing measured with Early Treatment Diabetic Retinopathy Study charts and spectral domain optical coherence tomography scans were performed[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Central blind spots (scotomas) usually occur late in the disease and can sometimes become severe. Symptoms are usually bilateral.[msdmanuals.com] Both cause progressive central vision loss with intact peripheral vision.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Diabetic Retinopathy

    Non-proliferative retinopathy is also called background retinopathy. Maculopathy The area of the retina we use most is called the macula.[netdoctor.co.uk] Macular degeneration in its most severe forms almost never causes total blindness. Usually only central vision is lost.[avruc.com] With early diagnosis and treatment, progression of diabetic eye disease and its associated vision loss can at a minimum be slowed, and in many cases vision loss from diabetic[bweyecenter.com]

  • Laurence Moon Syndrome

    In one specific case, patients of the same family were described to exhibit retinopathy, subaverage intellectual ability, first metacarpal hypoplasia, abnormal development[symptoma.com] Intellectual disability, hexadactyly, central diabetes insepidus, blindness (usually by 30 years due to central retinal degeneration).[en.wikipedia.org] We here present a case report of 18 year old male patient presenting in medicine department with weakness of both lower limbs, inability to walk, progressive loss of vision[ijmedph.org]

  • Photoretinitis

Solar retinitis .[nature.com] The retina may be burnt by the intense light focused on it; this affects the central part of the visual field, which may be permanently lost ( sun blindness ). * * * pho·to[medicine.academic.ru] RP; Vision loss - RP; Night vision loss - RP; Rod Cone dystrophy; Peripheral vision loss - RP; Night blindness Cukras CA, Zein WM, Caruso RC, Sieving PA.[medlineplus.gov]

  • Cytomegalovirus Retinitis

    To report a case of cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis in an immunocompetent patient with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). Case report.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] First signs of CMV retinitis are loss of peripheral vision or a blind spot which can progress to loss of central vision.[palmettoretina.com] Here, we report a case of CMV retinitis in a young immunocompetent male who presented with history of progressive loss of vision in both eyes despite receiving oral and intra-vitreal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa

    She developed proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) during the course of disease. She was promptly managed with pan retinal photocoagulation (PRP).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This typically affects the peripheral retina early and progresses later to compromise the central vision. Blindness can result.[nyee.edu] A 35-year-old man presented with history of painless, progressive loss of vision in the left eye for the past 7 years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Toxic Retinopathy

    Toxic retinopathy is an uncommon sequella in the treatment of certain autoimmune diseases with hydroxychloroquine (HCQ).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] History For retinopathy, patients should be asked about poor central vision, change in color vision, central blind spots, difficulty reading, and metamorphopsia.[eyewiki.aao.org] Signs and symptoms [ edit ] Vision loss in toxic and nutritional optic neuropathy is bilateral, symmetric, painless, gradual, and progressive.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Primary Optic Atrophy

    […] not forget to look for associated signs if you come across conditions like optic disc pit (looks at the macula for pigmentary changes suggestive of previous central serous retinopathy[mrcophth.com] Children with bilateral central blind spots (scotomas) may "overlook" in order to see a person or object.[tsbvi.edu] Bilateral, slowly progressive loss of vision; OPA1 gene on chromosome 3q28 ( 2 ) Autosomal recessive optic atrophy: OPA6 gene, rare ( 2 ) Optic atrophies associated with complex[unboundmedicine.com]

  • Usher Syndrome Type 1

    […] type I is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by profound congenital hearing impairment and vestibular dysfunction followed by the onset of progressive pigmentary retinopathy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This central vision too can be impaired and can lead to blindness in a small number of people with the disease.[jscreen.org] Usher syndrome type 3 is characterized by post-lingual, progressive hearing loss, late-onset progressive vision loss due to retinitis pigmentosa and variable loss of vestibular[ltd.aruplab.com]

  • Malignant Myopia

    OBJECTIVE: To determine changes in choroidal and retinal blood flow in myopic retinopathy. DESIGN: Case-control study.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This can cause sudden distortion of central vision, and, eventually, a blind spot in the central visual field.[brightfocus.org] This leads to progressive vision loss and an increased risk of retinal detachment and other degenerative conditions, including bleeding in the eye.[empireretina.com]
