971 Possible Causes for Retinal Damage

  • Cystinosis

    damage Third decade of life: Cerebral calcifications; muscular and swallowing difficulties Laboratory tests The following laboratory studies may be used to assess patients[emedicine.com] […] to therapy slows down-progression of renal failure by several more years Delayed sexual maturation; in males, hypogonadism and infertility Second or third decade of life: Retinal[emedicine.com]

  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency

    Says Smith: "The first symptom of retinal damage I noticed was a shadow in my right eye that affected my field of vision.[prevention.com] In extreme cases, lack of B12 can damage the optic nerve or plug up the blood vessels in the retina, causing blurry vision, double vision, sensitivity to light, and even vision[prevention.com]

  • Central Retinal Artery Occlusion

    The degree of retinal damage is variable when CRAO lasts between 105 and 240 min and irreversible profound visual loss may occur from its occlusion lasting for more than 240[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This phenomenon may provide an additional explanation regarding the permanent retinal damage and vision loss in eyes with CRAO.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The study aim was to evaluate the effect of HBOT and determine possible markers for irreversible retinal damage.[dovepress.com]

  • Essential Hypertension

    The second group (EOD group) had either microalbuminuria or retinal vascular changes while the third group (EOD group) had both renal and retinal damage.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After an average follow-up of 4.5 years, all were normotensive and had evidence of reversal of hypertensive damage to the heart and retinal vessels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypertensive Retinopathy

    The objective of this study was to determine if the presence of MA increases the risk of hypertensive retinal damage in nondiabetic adult Nigerians with hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The chronic increase in blood pressure causes damage to the retinal vessels and tissues that surround them.[barraquer.com] OBJECTIVE: Microalbuminuria (MA) is a marker of vascular damage and has prognostic implications in hypertension.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hypertension

    […] of the carotid vessel wall, retinal vascular changes, and even subtle cognitive changes, are detectable in children and adolescents with high BP.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Target organ damage: eyes Hypertensive ocular changes have been reported in approximately 50% of hypertensive cats, 6, 21, 22, 57 and studies suggest that retinal changes[doi.org] It is also apparent that intermediate markers of target organ damage, such as LVH, increased cIMT, retinal vascular changes, and even subtle cognitive changes, are detectable[doi.org]

  • Foreign Body in the Eye

    Retinal damage usually leads to permanent vision loss. Depending on the extent of the retinal damage, this vision loss could be partial or complete.[emedicinehealth.com] This may involve removal of haemorrhage, removal of the lens, suturing of any defect of the globe or repair of retinal damage. Will there be any long-term effects?[netdoctor.co.uk] A very careful retinal examination must be performed to identify an IOFB, the impact site of the IOFB, the presence of multiple IOFBs, and any other retinal damage including[webeye.ophth.uiowa.edu]

  • Diabetic Retinopathy

    Laboratory and clinical evidence showed that in addition to microvascular changes, inflammation and retinal neurodegeneration may contribute to diabetic retinal damage in[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It can develop so gradually that serious retinal damage may take place before any vision loss is noticed.[alimerasciences.com] Wilmer ophthalmologists also helped perfect an operation called vitrectomy, in which the vitreous is removed so that retinal damage may be minimized or even reversed.[hopkinsmedicine.org]

  • Retinopathy

    Ultrasound imaging confirmed the haemorrhage and showed no other retinal damage. She was diagnosed with valsalva haemorrhagic retinopathy and was treated conservatively.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] It can develop so gradually that serious retinal damage may take place before any vision loss is noticed.[alimerasciences.com] Retinal damage occurring from photochemical injury is observed in solar retinopathy.[symptoma.com]

  • Toxoplasmosis

    damages are probably caused by subsequent inflammatory responses.[emedicine.medscape.com] When human retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells are infected with Toxoplasma gondii, there is an increased production of several cytokines, including interleukin 1beta ([emedicine.medscape.com] […] humor samples from patients with active ocular toxoplasmosis. [10] This suggests that parasite proliferation occurs only during the early phase of infection and that the retinal[emedicine.medscape.com]
