Kiss. Dr. Deniz Marangoz said, “As the time spent in front of the screen increases, the number of blinking decreases and the tears evaporate more easily. In order to prevent this situation, it is necessary to take breaks while working on the screen and not forget to blink. It is necessary to keep the eye surface moist by using artificial tears for treatment. Omega -3 supplements, adequate daily water intake, balanced nutrition, adequate and quality sleep, walking and exercise also have a positive effect on physical activity, “he said.
“AN EYE EXAMINATION IS REQUIRED ASAP”
Stating that there is an increase in eye allergies during seasonal changes, Op. Dr. Deniz Marangoz, “In addition to redness, eye watering and itching complaints are at the forefront. Coexisting with swelling of the eyelids, swelling of the skin, nasal discharge can be seen. The appropriate treatment plan for relieving the complaints is determined according to the degree of allergy. The definitive treatment of allergies is to avoid the cause of allergies. Since this is not possible, allergic conjunctivitis recurs even though allergies regress with drug treatments.
Although research is ongoing on the coronavirus disease caused by the Sars-Cov-2 virus, all the effects of the disease on the organs are not fully known. Although conjunctivitis is seen in coronavirus disease, its distinctive feature from other viral conjunctivitis has not yet been determined. For this reason, taking into account the possibility of coronavirus, an eye examination is required as soon as possible following the development of eye redness. “
“TREATMENT OF UNDERLYING SITUATION IS ESSENTIAL”
Saying that when viral and bacterial conjunctivitis are detected, a treatment plan should be prepared with appropriate eye drops or ointments according to the location and degree of infection. Dr. Deniz Marangoz continued his words as follows:
“The most important issue in the presence of infection is the prevention of contamination. As it can be transmitted from one eye to the other eye, these infections can easily be transmitted to friends and family members with whom they are in close contact. For this reason, necessary care and effort should be paid to treat the disease as well as prevent it. In the form of attacks called uveitis, eye redness, light sensitivity, pain, watering complaints can occur, along with eye pressure, cataracts and vision loss.
Any or more of the areas of the eye described as front to back may be affected. After a detailed eye examination, necessary supplementary diagnostic tests can be used. A treatment plan should be made urgently to protect the tissues of the eye and to prevent vision loss. Treatment of the underlying condition is essential. For this reason, it is necessary to evaluate and treat the patient in cooperation with a rheumatologist. “
“GLOCOMA IS A DISEASE THAT WATCHES SINY”
“There is a constant circulation of the eye fluid inside the eye that nourishes the eye. The liquid is produced on the one hand and is emptied on the other. When there is a problem in production or discharge, the pressure of the fluid in the eye increases, which is called eye pressure (glaucoma).” It is a progressive disease, often does not cause any complaints, and is detected in routine eye examinations.
In the type of glaucoma where the angle closes where the liquid is drained, sudden onset of eye redness, severe eye and headache, light sensitivity, eye watering and nausea and vomiting are seen. It needs to be intervened urgently. As a result, we recommend that when you notice eye redness, you should be examined by your ophthalmologist and not to disrupt your routine eye examination once a year even if you do not have a complaint.
