355 Possible Causes for Scotoma, Secondary Glaucoma

  • Glaucoma

    Abstract We have reviously described surgical techniues for draining severe cases of secondary glaucoma by means of an artificial implant.[doi.org] , nasal steps, altitudinal scotomas, focal defects e.g. paracentral scotomas (2) optic disc changes - localised or generalised thinning of the neuroretinal rim, enlargement[gpnotebook.co.uk] Secondary glaucoma occurs due to a known cause. Both open- and closed-angle glaucoma can be secondary when caused by something known.[nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cataract

    In this case report, we described the examination and diagnosis of a case of iridoschisis accompanied by secondary glaucoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The problem may be confirmed with wavefront analysis. there may a type of peripheral ring scotoma (section of vision missing), an optical problem from edge of the lens implant[goodhopeeyeclinic.org.uk] Common problems of the visual field include scotoma (area of reduced vision), hemianopia (half of visual field lost), homonymous hemianopsia and bitemporal hemianopia.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Retinal Hemorrhage

    […] angle closure glaucoma, serous or hemorrhagic retinal detachments and retinal vein occlusion. 4,11 Treatment and management Treatment and management of RAMs depend on the[journalofoptometry.org] ., M.D. 3 Citing Articles A 50-year-old man presented with blurry vision and scotomas in his right eye immediately after a 2-week hiking trip in the Andes at an altitude of[nejm.org] A peripheral ring scotoma (detectable by visual field testing) widens gradually, and central vision may also be affected in advanced cases.[msdmanuals.com]

  • Malignant Choroidal Melanoma

    Another complication is secondary glaucoma which arises due to closure of the drainage angles by extensive detachment of the retina.[news-medical.net] When signs do arise, they consist of visual disturbances such as floaters, decreased visual acuity, photopsia, scotoma, and visual field defects.[symptoma.com] Secondary glaucoma: Secondary angle closure glaucoma can develop due to anterior displacement of the iris-lens diaphragm by the mass.[eyewiki.aao.org]

  • Normal-Tension Glaucoma

    Classification  Primary glaucomaSecondary glaucoma  Open angle glaucoma  Angle closure glaucoma  Child-hood glaucoma Primary glaucoma : not ass.[slideshare.net] All patients had a scotoma confined to the upper or lower hemifield.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A dense scotoma extending from the nasal periphery toward fixation was the most common visual field defect.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Central Retinal Vein Occlusion

    […] to decrease vitreous hemorrhage and prevent neovascular glaucoma.[msdmanuals.com] BCVA rised to a level of 20/20 for the RE and the scotomas were disappeared immediately after using of the HBO treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The central scotoma remained unchanged. In the second patient, within the next three months, the development of retinal ischemia led to retinal neovascularization.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Corneal Opacity

    To evaluate secondary glaucoma after penetrating keratoplasty with anterior-segment optical coherence tomography (OCT). Case series.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] However, the scarcity of donor corneas, risk of graft failure, graft infection, secondary glaucoma, and suture-related problems after this combined procedure necessitate the[crstodayeurope.com] Complications included cataract development (12 eyes), secondary glaucoma (14 eyes), epithelial defects (6 eyes), band keratopathy (5 eyes), retinal detachment (3 eyes), wound[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Hypertension

    glaucoma. 55 Figure 5 SBP 195 mmHg.[doi.org] […] areas of pigmentary disturbance Other ocular signs associated with hypertension include hyphaema and vitreal haemorrhage ( Figure 5 ), 7 and hyphaema can in turn lead to secondary[doi.org]

  • Open-Angle Glaucoma

    Conditions such as inflammation or trauma can contribute to elevated intraocular pressure in secondary glaucoma, whereas congenital abnormalities of the trabecular meshwork[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] His visual field (VF) was characterized by bilateral progressive central scotoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Early glaucomatous visual field defects typically present as nasal steps, paracentral scotomas, arcuate bundle scotomas, or temporal wedges.[newgradoptometry.com]

  • Vitreous Hemorrhage

    The fellow eye was enucleated earlier because of VH and secondary glaucoma, without histologic signs of a viable tumor.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Symptoms: Painless visual loss floaters cobwebs, shadows or a red hue. visual field defect /scotomas photopsia 14. Signs: Red fundus reflex may be absent.[slideshare.net] Severe hemorrhage diminishes visual clarity or causes scotomas which is worse in the morning time due to blood settling on the macula.[symptoma.com]
