174 Possible Causes for Fundoscopy Abnormal, Visual Acuity Decreased

  • Macular Degeneration

    Visual decline was prominent among study eyes, with approximately 40% of all eyes decreasing in visual acuity by or 15 letters at 5 years follow-up.[] Visual acuity decreased to 20/32 in the left eye. Fundus examination revealed stable confluent drusen without any apparent fluid, blood, or lipid.[] Despite treatment, her visual acuity had decreased to 1/50 by 6.8 years after her first visit.[]

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa

    Macular edema may cause additional central visual acuity decrease. Cystoid macular edema (CME) is one of the few treatable causes of visual loss in RP.[] Removal of the cataracts may lessen glare and improve visual acuity. Decreased Visual Acuity A portion of RP patients, will experience a loss of central vision.[] The visual acuity decrease was not statistically significant.[]

  • Diabetic Retinopathy

    Diabetic retinopathy is diagnosed entirely by recognizing abnormalities on retinal images taken by fundoscopy.[] Her visual acuity decreased to 0.5 OU, and ophthlamoscopy showed severe DME in both eyes.[] Postoperatively, visual acuity decreased to no light perception because of neovascular glaucoma complications and lack of proper follow-up.[]

  • Peripheral Vasoproliferative Retinopathy

    Younger children are more likely to present with leukocoria and strabismus, while older children and adults are more likely to detect and report a decrease in visual acuity[] Exudation and vitreous hemorrhage can lead to decrease in visual acuity.[] The most common signs are decreased visual acuity, strabismus and leukocoria. Other signs include pain, nystagmus and heterochromia of the iris.[]

  • Retinal Perforation

    At discharge, the right visual acuity was 6/12, but 3 months later it had decreased to 6/18 due to macular pucker.[] visual acuity.[] The authors blamed pre-existing macular hole, detachment duration of over one month and poor pre-op visual acuity as independent risk factors for decreased post-operative[]

  • Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension

    Physical examination including fundoscopy as well as imaging showed no abnormalities.[] We report the case of a 14-year-old girl with sudden onset of decreased visual acuity, headache and menstrual irregularity.[] visual acuity.[]

  • Retinal Phlebitis

    An 8   8 mm scan was used to perform large area scans of the retina in those cases that had peripheral macular abnormalities identified on fundoscopy.[] One patient had a progressive decrease in visual acuity, paracentral scotoma, and midperipheral perivascular sheathing.[] Visual acuity returned to normal and the whitish fundus patches decreased in number and size in both eyes.[]

  • Retinal Artery Embolism

    Patients with obstructions of both arteries and veins will present a painless decrease of visual acuity.[] […] right visual acuity.[] His best corrected visual acuity was 20/30 and counting fingers close to the face in the right and left eye respectively.[]

  • Retinal Arterial Branch Occlusion

    Marcus-Gunn pupils (RAPD) Red reflex — abnormal and asymmetrical Fundoscopy — a pale retina with areas of cilioretinal sparing and a classic ‘ cherry red spot ’ in the macula[] On examination, the best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 20/20 in the right eye and 20/80 in the left eye. Anterior segments of both eyes were normal.[] Standard slit lamp fundoscopy showed absence of foveal reflex, but no other major abnormalities.[]

  • Choroid Hemangioma

    […] in visual acuity.[] Reported cases in the literature document resolution of subretinal fluid, decrease in thickness of the tumor and improvement in visual acuity. 19,20 External beam radiation[] Argon laser can also cause scarring of the choroid and retina, however, which can lead to decreased visual acuity.[]
