275 Possible Causes for Night Blindness, Retinal Scar

  • Retinitis Pigmentosa

    The left eye of the same patient revealed typical PPRCA phenotype, with no night blindness, normal field, and normal ERG.[] The most common form of RP is a rod-cone dystrophy, in which the first symptom is night blindness, followed by the progressive loss in the peripheral visual field in daylight[] History of familial disease and long-standing night blindness were specific to RP.[]

  • Retinopathy

    The scarring and bleeding can lead to retinal scarring or detachment from the back of the eye, resulting in vision loss. Why is retinopathy of prematurity a concern?[] The short duration and rapid progression of symptoms along with the lack of family history of night blindness prompted a diagnosis of autoimmune retinopathy (AIR).[] […] detachment at the age of ten years, in spite of their spontaneous recovery with remaining scars.[]

  • Retinitis

    Two patients were not treated (patients 1 and 8), one of whom (patient 8) had received an autologous transplant and was diagnosed with atrophic retinal scarring compatible[] In young patients with the symptom of night blindness, it is important to differentiate retinitis pigmentosa from stationary night blindness.[] Progression of active retinitis causes scarring ( Figure 2c ), suggesting the virus involvement from the beginning.[]

  • Diabetes Mellitus

    These problems are known as diabetes complications, and include: Eye problems, including trouble seeing (especially at night), light sensitivity, and blindness Sores and infections[] Spontaneous bleeding from the new and brittle blood vessels can lead to retinal scarring and retinal detachment, thus impairing vision.[] You could become blind. Your feet and skin can develop sores and infections. After a long time, your foot or leg may need to be amputated.[]

  • Diabetic Retinopathy

    This causes abnormal and very fragile blood vessels to grow on the surface of the retina which can lead to permanent loss of vision from bleeding into the eye, retinal scarring[] A 39-year-old woman with typical retinitis pigmentosa (RP) for 9 years and a positive family history of night blindness was diagnosed with diabetes mellitus (DM).[] A 50-year-old Iranian diabetic woman with night blindness was referred to our clinic.[]

  • Glaucoma

    So, the closer the damage is to fixation, the more likely I am to treat, even if the patient has myopic retinal scars in the fovea that could also account for the field loss[] A later edition used the modern spelling night blindness (1930 — ). 12 Translation of another work by Guillemeau used the term ectropion (1900 — ). 13 Long after his training[] If you suspect that you have acute glaucoma, call for medical assistance day or night.[]

  • Macular Degeneration

    These abnormal blood vessels eventually scar, leading to permanent retinal damage and loss of central vision.[] Night glare – this is sensitivity to bright lights at night.[] Disciform scars Disciform scars are the end-stage of exudative AMD in which the retinal tissue is replaced by scar tissue (usually vascularized).[]

  • Retinal Detachment

    The scarring that results seals the retina to the underlying tissue, helping to prevent a retinal detachment.[] Night blindness followed by a loss of day vision are clinical signs common to most. There may also be an associated cataract formation.[] Audo I, Kohl S, Leroy BP, Munier FL, Guillonneau X, et al. (2009) TRPM1 is mutated in patients with autosomal-recessive complete congenital stationary night blindness.[]

  • Stargardt Macular Degeneration

    The abnormal vessels may also produce large scars in the retina that may cause the underlying retina to detach (retinal detachment).[] These are similar to those of the second group but at later ages the symptoms and signs of retinitis pigmentosa appear including night blindness and abnormalities of the photopic[] The neovascular form is heralded by choroidal neovascularization (CNV), with subsequent development of disciform scarring.[]

  • Cytomegalovirus Retinitis

    Fibrovascular changes occurred in the CMV retinitis scar, were misdiagnosed as CMV retinitis reactivation, and were treated with anti-CMV medication.[] Generally night precedes tunnel vision by years or even decades. Total blindness eventually ensues in most cases.[] Eyes with Full thickness retinitis developed choriocapillaris atrophy and choroidal thinning and retinal scars as the lesions healed.[]
