Six Reasons to visit your ophthalmologist right away

The first thing we can start with is the definition of ophthalmology.

It is a branch of medicine and surgery that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases.

The ophthalmologist is a specialist in ophthalmology. He performs examinations and, thorough examinations prove the presence or absence of disease.

Examples of diagnostic methods performed on eye examination:

  • Visual acuity;
  • Refraction;
  • Ocular tonometry for determination of intraocular pressure;
  • Slit-lamp test;
  • Retina examination

Why are we telling you all this?

Because it is important to be informed so that you can protect yourself.

In this article, we will cover a lot of seemingly different topics, but in reality, they are related to each other.

Thanks to the symptoms, we are able to understand that there is something wrong with our health and we need an examination to diagnose a specific eye disease or condition.

Online control symptoms may not cover all visual or all possible conditions but may suggest that there is some imbalance.

If you have any of the following eye or vision symptoms, you should visit an ophthalmologist.

Always consult a doctor about your own health and seek medical treatment if you have an eye or vision concerns.

Eye injuries, sudden changes or loss of vision and eye pain can be signs of serious problems requiring emergency care.

That is why we need to take care of ourselves personally and attach importance to these conditions.

Information is at the heart of everything, without which humanity cannot develop.

One of the main goals of Iris is to be able to protect your eyes and realize how much we are harming while using our facilitating technologies.

It is increasingly necessary to talk about damage from screens and monitors because there are two sides to the coin on them as everything else.

From all of the above, it’s time to show you six common symptoms that you will need to visit an ophthalmologist for.

In these types of articles, the importance of numbers is sorted in descending order, but for people, each of the symptoms listed is vitally important that we will not follow this method, but simply inform you so that you can visit an ophthalmologist as soon as possible.

 

Have you ever had a slight burning sensation with your eyes closed for longer periods of time?

If so, you have to think about what caused it.

The most common cause is short hours of sleep, but have you thought about why you sleep less than 7-8 hours.

Our answer to this is the long exposure to blue light.

Yes, you will think that it is not common, but in fact, it is.

Every modern person owns a mobile device and a computer, and they are part of everyday life, completely.

These types of symptoms are difficult to grasp because each of us never thinks he has something, and always gives the most logical and reassuring explanation for it, but not always that the truth.

Have you experienced itching and secretion in your eye area?

We ask you because prolonged itching and secretion from the eyes are most often the results of allergies (pollen, pets, and other environmental substances).

The condition causes discomfort, but fortunately, it usually does not lead to vision loss.

You will now wonder what allergies have to do with protecting my eyes while using my mobile device.

It matters because while you use your phone, your eyes receive an additional dose of radiation, which can at some point increase the sensitivity of your eyes.

This symptom does not lead to irreversible consequences, but it is for your own benefit to visit an ophthalmologist over a period of time that can monitor your allergy level and whether there is any change in the condition of your eyes.

Have you ever looked across the horizon and seen misty silhouettes?

If so, unfortunately, this is not a good sign. You may suffer from blurred vision, which if not looked at by an ophthalmologist has its progressive consequences.

Blurred vision occurs in cataracts (a progressive condition that can lead to blindness if left untreated).

Cataract can be treated if diagnosed on time.

Blurred vision can be caused by vitamin A deficiency, sexually transmitted diseases, eye tumors.

Do not waste time, but immediately call to book an appointment with your ophthalmologist, because eyes are very important for your existence.

The next reason is the blurred vision of near and far

The inability to see clearly available near or far is a symptom recognized as external refraction (myopia, examination, astigmatism, presbyopia).

It can be easily adjusted with glasses, contact lenses or a laser.

A more serious reason for this may be macular degeneration that affects central vision.

The eye fails to visualize objects with the mid-visual field.

In contrast, peripheral vision is not affected.

This condition can lead to irreversible consequences, namely blindness.

The problem must be trapped in the bud and treatment should be started immediately.

Feedback is also possible.

If you do not have a problem with central vision, but the areas outside of it begin to lose volume, then you may have a problem with peripheral vision.

One of the reasons may be Glaucoma, but for complete safety of your condition, visit an ophthalmologist.

 

Have you heard of Floating Stains?

We will try to explain them briefly to you.

The dark, clearly visible spots in your field of view are called floating spots.

The occurrence may be an indication of vitreous, retinal, or diabetic retinopathy.

If you have such a symptom, consult an ophthalmologist, because the consequences are unclear unless the necessary examinations are done.

If you see flashes while watching your pet

If you happen to see lights or glimpses in the field of view and these are not glimpses of the sun out, then you may have vision problems.

Like dark spots, it is an indication of the detachment of the vitreous or retina.

This sounds daunting, but if diagnosed on time, any undesirable development of the problem can be reversed.

We decided to introduce you to the common and overlooked symptoms at the outset so you can help yourself when needed.

Because visual impairments can lead to blindness, it is recommended that you visit an ophthalmologist every year, especially for people with visual impairments.

Another reason for routine checkups is that many of the illnesses show almost no symptoms in their early stages.

And when they are discovered, they are usually advanced and difficult to treat.
