168 Possible Causes for Fundoscopy Abnormal, Progressive Loss of Vision

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa

    A 35-year-old man presented with history of painless, progressive loss of vision in the left eye for the past 7 years.[] Her main complaints were night blindness and progressive loss of vision since the age of 9 years.[] Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is a highly heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by degeneration of the retinal photoreceptor cells and progressive loss of vision.[]

  • Retinitis

    A loss of side vision, or tunnel vision, is also common as RP progresses.[] Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) describes a group of related diseases that tend to run in families and cause a slow but progressive loss of vision.[] French biotech Horama has treated the first patients with a gene therapy for retinitis pigmentosa that could prevent the progressive loss of vision caused by this genetic[]

  • Stargardt Macular Degeneration

    Loss of photoreceptor cells leads to progressive vision loss in people with Stargardt macular degeneration.[] Signs and Symptoms The most common symptom of Stargardt disease is the slow, progressive loss of vision in the center of the focal point of sight in both eyes.[] Progressive vision loss eventually leads to blindness in most cases. What Causes Stargardt's Disease?[]

  • Usher Syndrome Type 1

    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[] loss of vision due to retinitis pigmentosa.[] An autosomal recessive condition characterized by sensorineural hearing loss and progressive loss of vision due to retinitis pigmentosa.[]

  • Macular Degeneration

    Both cause progressive central vision loss with intact peripheral vision.[] If more and more of these atrophic areas form and merge together, the macula can take on a moth-eaten appearance, with progressive loss of vision.[] loss of central vision in both eyes.[]

  • Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension

    Physical examination including fundoscopy as well as imaging showed no abnormalities.[] Neurol India 2012;60:267-8 A 22-year-old thin male presented with holocranial headache and painless, non-progressive loss of vision bilaterally.[] PTC is a condition important to recognize because it may lead to progressive loss of vision over time – which may be permanent.[]

  • Retinal Telangiectasia

    At the initial stages, there may only be vascular abnormalities, but as the disease progresses, exudation of fluid produces subretinal deposits, which can be seen on fundoscopy[] This causes fluid build-up and swelling, impairing reflection of light and causing progressive vision loss.[] Computer-assisted image analysis can then be used to characterise more accurately abnormalities of the retinal microvasculature.[]

  • Diabetic Retinopathy

    Diabetic retinopathy is diagnosed entirely by recognizing abnormalities on retinal images taken by fundoscopy.[] 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[] […] can be delayed with improved loss of vision.[]

  • Retinopathy

    Over time this causes photoreceptor cells to die and progressive loss of vision results.[] RESULTS: A 31-year-old woman presented with a history of myasthenia gravis and rapidly progressive vision loss at the age of 23.[] Progressive retinal degeneration Night blindness Loss of peripheral vision Loss of central vision (in advanced cases) Progressive overall vision loss Stay Informed[]

  • Retinal Detachment

    Peripheral vision is typically lost first, and vision loss spreads as the detachment progresses.[] Individuals suffering from retinal detachment will experience progressive peripheral vision loss as the retina detaches.[] The loss of vision causes grayness in the field of vision or resembles a curtain or veil falling across the line of sight.[]
