Diseases Eye


Presentation

  • Many disease forms presents with combinations of akinetic phenomenology. A differential diagnostic approach to the understanding of different lesions of the nervous system with similar presentations will be embraced.[carrickinstitute.com]
  • Scleromalacia perforans may present with minimal/no symptoms. Posterior scleritis may present with very severe symptoms but a quiet white eye.[patient.info]
  • Clinical presentation is usually with leukocoria or strabismus, although eventually complete blindness may develop. The diagnosis is usually made with indirect ophthalmoscopy 2,3 . The disease is unilateral in 80-90% of cases 2 .[radiopaedia.org]

  • Although in the present study blinding of investigation was not done and the data collection was not done using random sampling method, findings of the present study provide important information regarding the presence of MSDs in farmers of Kanpur-rural[omicsonline.org]
Diplopia
  • If ocular motility is impaired (eg, causing diplopia), extraocular muscles should be assessed for signs of entrapment. If there is diplopia or cosmetically unacceptable enophthalmos, surgical repair may be indicated.[merckmanuals.com]
  • If this occurs, the images of the two eyes, which are normally fused, may separate and give rise to double vision (diplopia).[britannica.com]

  • Diplopia (posterior disease). Occasional associated systemic symptoms (fever, vomiting, headache). Scleromalacia perforans may present with minimal/no symptoms. Posterior scleritis may present with very severe symptoms but a quiet white eye.[patient.info]
Red Eye
  • Localised or diffuse red eye. Watering and occasional mild photophobia. No other associated ocular symptoms. No discharge other than watering. Visual acuity normal.[patient.info]
  • Thus the patient presents with a red eye that can rapidly progress to a more fulminant course. Often, both eyes are involved. Almost half of the patients in our practice with a diagnosis of scleritis had a underlying connective tissue disease.[asiteforeyes.com]

Excessive Tearing
  • Two mutually reinforcing global mechanisms, tear hyperosmolarity and tear film instability, have been identified. 3 • Tear hyperosmolarity can arise from either low aqueous flow or excessive tear film evaporation.[ajmc.com]
Dizziness
  • The most commonly reported adverse events were somnolence, dizziness and fatigue.[globenewswire.com]
  • Co-workers, family members, or significant others may feel dizzy trying to maintain. What did you say today? She is so mad that she won't even speak to you! Wait, now she is back; she's crying and depressed and requires you for emotional support.[psychotherapy.thementalhealth.clinic]
Ataxia

Treatment

  • Treatment is sought by approximately half of affected individuals (49.2% [1.2%]), especially those with severe role impairment (59.4% [1.8%]) or comorbid disorders (55.8% [1.4%]) and those living in high-income countries (59.0% [1.3%]).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • “What this new study adds is a better understanding of what matters in regards to supervision of treatment. We are now able to improve treatment efficiency while also improving outcomes for every child.”[blogs.chapman.edu]
  • Treatment Treatment for bipolar disorder most often includes a combination of a mood-stabilizing drug and psychotherapy. Although drug treatment is primary, ongoing psychotherapy is important to help patients better cope with the condition.[expatriates.psyq.nl]

Prognosis

  • Scleritis - prognosis When scleritis originates from a systemic disorder, its course tends to follow that of the underlying problem.[patient.info]

Etiology

  • Third, certain DED etiologies involve multiple mechanisms.[ajmc.com]
  • Granulomatous Inflammations • Exogenous • Endogenous The etiology of most cases of granulomatous inflammation is not known. Connective tissue diseases are common in a third of cases.[asiteforeyes.com]
  • The etiology of this condition is tied to the “near reflex,” which has two main components. First, the visual axes must converge, so that both eyes can view the same object.[britannica.com]

Pathophysiology

  • Although recent research has made progress in elucidating DED pathophysiology, currently there are no uniform diagnostic criteria.[ajmc.com]

Prevention

  • In the United States, cigarette smoking is the leading cause of preventable disease and accounts for about 1 in every 5 deaths, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention .[medicaldaily.com]
  • World leaders have committed to “prevention and treatment of noncommunicable diseases, including behavioral, developmental and neurological disorders, which constitute a major challenge for sustainable development.”[bhjustice.org]
