546 Possible Causes for Scotoma, Visual Acuity Decreased

  • Glaucoma

    , 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] After 2 months, choroidal swelling had completely resolved, best-corrected visual acuity was 20/50, and intraocular pressure was 11 mm Hg.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A disc haemoorrhage may indicate a scotoma (glaucoma damage).[goodhopeeyeclinic.org.uk]

  • Cataract

    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] This results in a decrease in visual acuity and eventual blindness if untreated.[icd9data.com] 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]

  • Stroke

    BACKGROUND: Impaired gait function after stroke contributes strongly to overall patient disability. Recently, sleep disturbance was reported to negatively affect functional recovery after stroke. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to identify the impact of sleep disturbance on balance and gait function in stroke[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    MV and GCIPL thickness were significantly correlated with visual acuity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] decrease may be explained by alternative mechanisms including retrograde trans-synaptic degeneration and/or a common pathophysiologic process affecting both the brain with[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RNFL thinning was associated with thalamus and visual cortex volume (respectively, p   0.01 and p CONCLUSION: Our results suggest that RNFL thinning and GCIPL thinning/MV[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Retinal Detachment

    RESULTS: A 41-year-old woman was referred with a 2-week history of decreased vision and scotoma in the left eye. She was in her sixth month of pregnancy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The patient's visual acuity (OS) decreased to hand motion 10 days after the surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] idiopathic, trauma, aging, tumors, inflammation; in premature infants, RD is caused by retinopathy of prematurity Clinical Progressive loss of visual field, often accompanied by scotomas[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]

  • Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension

    Visual symptoms: Visual obscurations, persistent blurring, or scotomas are reported by 30 to 70 % of patients.[symptoma.com] We report the case of a 14-year-old girl with sudden onset of decreased visual acuity, headache and menstrual irregularity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] visual acuity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

    In NMO patients, 33% of patients showed both central scotoma and non-central scotoma, and 13% of patients showed non-central scotoma every time.[dx.doi.org] The patient presented with progressive decrease of visual acuity, intermittent diplopia, paresthesia of the left arm and equilibrium disturbances.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract A 33-year-old man with gait instability, weakness of the left lower extremity, decreased visual acuity in the left eye, and urgency and urine incontinence was diagnosed[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Retinitis

    Three months later, his corrected VA was 20/20 with relative scotoma in Amsler grid, normal color vision, no scotoma in HVF 10-2 and unchanged SDOCT findings.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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.[lowvision.org] The visual acuity decrease was not statistically significant.[iovs.arvojournals.org]

  • Occipital Lobe Tumor

    Scotoma The Peristriate region of the occipital lobe is involved in visuospatial processing, discrimination of movement and color discrimination.[braininjury-explanation.com] […] visual migraine aura consisting of shimmering lights followed by a dark spot or partial loss of vision that may move across the visual field scotoma island-like gap or blind[strokecenter.org] […] location at the back of the brain, although any significant trauma to the brain could produce subtle changes to our visual-perceptual system, such as visual field defects and scotomas[braininjury-explanation.com]

  • Autosomal Dominant Optic Atrophy

    Early loss of inferior temporal RNFL in ADOA is related to superotemporal central scotoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Visual acuity decreased with decreasing GC-IPL thickness (p 0.0006 in c.983A G and p 0.0084 in c.2708_2711delTTAG).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] degeneration of retinal ganglion cells, variable loss of visual acuity, temporal optic nerve pallor, tritanopia, and development of central, paracentral, or cecocentral scotomas[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
