Facts About Cataract!

Cataract can be defined as the clouding of the natural lenses in the eyes. This is caused by the clumping of protein in the eye lens. Cataract is a common eye disorder and the leading cause of loss of vision in people who are past their fortieth birthday. Cataract can occur in one or both eyes. When diagnosed properly, cataract can be treated with surgery to prevent blindness.

Depending on where and how they develop, there are many types of cataract. The most common amongst these are:

1. Subcapsular cataract- These occur at the back of the eye lens. Diabetic patients are very susceptible to this kind of cataract.

2. Nuclear cataract- Yellowish-brown cataract that form in the center of the lens are called nuclear cataract. This is usually seen in cataract caused by ageing.

3. Cortical cataract- Cataract in the lens cortex are known as cortical cataract. These are wedge shaped and whitish in color. Spokes protruding out of these opaque wedges can be seen moving towards the center of the eye.

4. Congenital cataract- Though they are not common, babies can also have cataract. Cataract formed at birth or within the first year of a baby's birth are known as congenital cataract.

5. Secondary cataract- Cataract is one of the known side effects of diabetes and glaucoma. Some steroids and medicines are also linked to cataract.

6. Traumatic cataract- If your vision becomes cloudy years after an eye injury, it could be a traumatic cataract. It can take several years for this to happen.

7. Radiation cataract- Exposure to radiation can also lead to cataract. This is seen sometimes in patients who have undergone radiation therapy to fight diseases like cancer.

Though the type of cataract might differ from person to person, the symptoms are usually the same. Some of the common symptoms of cataract are:

1. Blurred vision

2. Reduced night vision

3. Increased sensitivity to light and glare

4. Seeing halos around lights

5. Colors appearing faded

6. Double vision
 

A reading test is the first step towards diagnosing cataracts. This is followed by tests to measure the eye pressure. Your doctor will also need to dilate the pupil to check the condition of the optic nerves and retina.

Surgery is the safest way to remove a cataract. Surgery is usually recommended when cataract begin inhibiting your daily life such as preventing you from driving, interfering with reading etc.

In most cases, this can be done as an outpatient procedure. The earlier it is diagnosed, the easier it is to treat. Hence, if you notice any of the symptoms mentioned above, get your eyes checked at once. The surgery is a day-care surgery only, so a person can go home the same day.

Night Blindness - Know What Can Lead To It!

Night blindness is also called nyctalopia.It's a type of vision impairment. People with night blindness experience poor vision at night or in dimly lit environments. It is not a disease in itself, but rather a symptom of an underlying problem, usually a retina problem.

What Causes Night Blindness?
A number of eye conditions can cause night blindness, including:

  1. Nearsightedness or blurred vision when looking at faraway objects.
  2. Cataracts or clouding of the eye's lens.
  3. Retinitis pigmentosa, which occurs when dark pigment collects in your retina and creates tunnel vision.
  4. Vitamin A Deficiency
  5. Zinc Deficiency
  6. Dry Eyes
  7. Diabetes

Are the Symptoms of Night Blindness?
The sole symptom of night blindness is difficulty seeing in the dark. You're more likely to experience night blindness when your eyes transition from a bright environment to an area of low light, such as when you leave a sunny sidewalk to enter a dimly lit restaurant. You're likely to experience poor vision when driving due to the intermittent brightness of headlights and streetlights on the road.

How can I Prevent Night Blindness?
You can't prevent night blindness that's the result of birth defects or genetic conditions, such as Usher syndrome. You can, however, properly monitor your blood sugar level and eat a balanced diet to make night blindness less likely. 

Orange colored foods are excellent sources of vitamin A, including:

  1. Cantaloupes
  2. Sweet potatoes
  3. Carrots
  4. Pumpkins
  5. Butternut squash
  6. Mangoes

What are the Treatment Options for Night Blindness?
The treatment will depend on its causes.

  1. Nutrient deficiency (Vitamin A and Zinc) is the easiest to treat. 
  2. If the cause is cataract, you can go for cataract surgery to remove the clouded lens and replace it with artificial intraocular lens. Vision is usually dramatically improved after surgery
  3. For dry eye syndrome, lubricate your eyes with artificial tear drops as they provide instant relief. Just make sure that they are without preservatives. 
  4. Diabetic retinopathy can be prevented with tight control over blood sugar, active lifestyle and good dietary habits.
  5. As for retinitis pigmentosa, unfortunately there are no treatments available. Thankfully, new research is showing that vitamin A might have a slowing effect on the progression of this eye disease.

Common Eye Diseases With Strange Reasons

Most individuals suffer from eye problems sometime in their entire life span. Since our eyes are one of the most important assets and sense organs, periodic check ups are recommended to prevent serious eye problems. Here is a list of 5 primary eye diseases, their causes and cure:

Conjunctivitis
This disease is commonly called pink eye. It involves swelling of the conjunctiva lines inside the eyelids which cover the sclera of the eyes as well.

Causes
1. May occur because of factors like viruses, bacteria and substances, which cause irritation such as shampoo, smoke, dirt, chlorine in swimming pools.
2. Dust, pollens or similar allergies may cause this disease in sensitive people.
3. This disease is infectious in nature and spreads from person to person.
This disorder may be treated with eye drops, pills or ointments containing antibiotics. Avoid being with other people when affected and also abstain from using contact lenses.

Glaucoma
In case of this disease, the optic nerve of the eye is damaged and can lead to loss of vision over time. Build-up of pressure takes place inside the eye.

Causes
1. Occurs due to intense pressure within the eyes or the intraocular pressure.
2. The extra pressure destroys the optic nerve.
3. Permanent blindness is caused if the disease is not controlled and treated.
Eye drops, laser surgery, and microsurgery are methods for curing glaucoma.

Ocular Migraine

This temporary disease causes loss of vision in one eye and generally does not last for more than an hour. This might happen after a migraine headache.

 

Causes
1. Mainly caused due to health-related issues than from eye problems.
2. Also occurs from regular migraines.
3. It is related to spasms caused in the blood vessels of the retina.
This disorder can be cured by using aspirin, epilepsy drugs and blood-pressure medication known as beta blockers.

Retinal vascular occlusion
This disease affects the retina and lowers the supply of oxygen-rich blood.

Causes
1. Factors such as atherosclerosis, blood clots and blockage in arteries, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity or smoking lead to this disease.
2. The blood flow to the retina is restricted.
Medicines like blood thinners, eye injects such as vascular endothelial growth can cure this disorder.

Ophthalmoplegia
Paralysis of the eye muscles occurs. Can occur in more than one of the eye muscles.

Causes
1. Happens due to interruption of messages sent to the eye from the brain.
2. Caused from muscle disorders.
3. Also caused from migraines, thyroid problems, stroke, etc.
Special eye patches and eyewear are used for treating this disorder, for relieving double vision.
Eye diseases are very common, and a large number of eye diseases can occur from different reasons and causes. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Colour Blindness - Understanding Everything About It!

Colour Blindness - Understanding Everything About It!

Colour blindness is not a type of blindness at all; it is an insufficiency in the way some people see colour. Once afflicted by this vision problem, people face difficulty in distinguishing specific colours like red, green, blue or yellow. So to call it colour vision deficiency would be much appropriate, and it hits men more often than women. In a report by Prevent Blindness America, it is revealed that about 8% of males and less than 1% of females are affected with colour vision problems. Generally, red and green colour deficiency is the most commonly found. In very rare instances, a person may carry a trait which lessens his ability to distinguish between blue and yellow colours. This blue-yellow hue insufficiency normally is found in men and women equally.

Understanding signs and symptoms: Do you have any difficulty in seeing yellow, green or red colours? Do people often tell you that you are seeing the wrong colour? If so, then these are key signs that you are affected with a colour perception deficiency. Quite opposite to popular belief, hardly a colour blind person is able to see only the shades of gray. Most people who are deemed as colour blind are able to see shades but cannot distinguish between one colour and another and get easily confused with other shades, depending on the kind of colour blindness they are affected with. If you have suddenly developed a colour vision deficiency when you were able to view and distinguish all the shades previously, then you should visit an ophthalmologist without further delay.

Causes behind colour blindness: Colour blindness takes place when the light-sensitive cells within the retina stop responding accurately to variations in wavelengths of light.

Photoreceptors present in the retina are termed as rods and cones. Rods are present abundantly, and about 100 million rod cells are present in human retina and these cells are very sensitive to light, but rods are impervious to sunlight and therefore, are incapable of perceiving colours. The cones, on the other hand, are responsible for our understanding of different colours. There are three types of cones, each of which is responsible for perceiving red, green and blue light. The three cones work together to help us see the whole range of colours. People who are colour blind usually have faults in a particular cone cell, which makes them unable to distinguish that particular shade.

Combatting colour blindness: Gene therapies are reported to cure colour blindness in monkeys, as per the reports of a study conducted by researchers of the University of Washington and Florida in September 2009. While early methods appear promising, gene therapy is not considered effective for human beings unless the treatments are verified to be safe.

Hence there is no effective means of curing colour blindness, but there are some strategies that may aid you to function better. However, if you are into graphic designing or anything that requires handling of different colours, then you will need professional help. The sooner you become aware of your insufficiency, the better you can compensate for it.

Some people also use contact lenses or eyeglasses that act as filters to enhance colour perception. If you are affected by this problem, make sure you visit an eye-care practitioner for detailed advice. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Common Indications Of Learning Disabilities In Children!

Parenting is a lifetime job be it for a normal child or a child with special needs. Parents are teachers, guides, leaders, protectors and providers for their children. Parenting is a process of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social, financial and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood. Every child is a gift and a blessing to their parents. On the other hand, parenting itself is one of the toughest jobs and that too for a child with special needs, it is both a blessing and challenge.

It is a very unique experience to live with a disabled child as it has a major impact on the family, siblings and extended family members. However, discovering a problem should be the initial step to start with parenting such children. Discovering a child's special needs is often a confusing and painful process for parents as sometimes learning difficulties can be multiple and difficult to pinpoint and it can be hard for parents to know whether things are normal or not.

There are various categories of disabilities that your child might fall under. For example: Specific Learning Disability (SLD), Other Health Impairment, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Emotional disturbance, Speech or language impairment, Visual impairment, including blindness, Deafness, Deaf-blindness, Orthopedic impairment, Intellectual disability, Traumatic brain injury, Multiple disabilities.

Some common indications for the development of learning disabilities which can be taken into consideration

  1. Difficulty with reading/writing
  2. Problems with math skills
  3. Difficulty in remembering
  4. Problem in paying attention
  5. Trouble following directions
  6. Difficulty with concepts related to time
  7. Problem in staying organized
  8. Impulsive behavior
  9. Inappropriate responses in school or social situations
  10. Difficulty staying on task(easily distracted)
  11. Difficulty finding the right way to say something
  12. Immature way of speaking
  13. Inconsistent school performance
  14. Difficulty listening well
  15. Problem in understanding words or concept

But the above mentioned signs are not enough to determine that a person has a learning disability. A professional assessment is also necessary to diagnose a learning disability because every disability has its own signs and unless they persist over time cannot be considered as a 'disability'. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Colour Blindness In Hindi - कलर ब्लाइंडनेस का उपचार

एक तो होता है ब्लाइंडनेस और दुसरा है कलर ब्लाइंडनेस. ये एक ऐसी स्थिति है जिसमें कुछ रंगों में अंतर करने की क्षमता सामान्य से काम हो जाती है. इसका अर्थ है कि कलर ब्लाइंडनेस से पीड़ित व्यक्ति को लाल, हरे, नीले या इनका मिश्रण देखने में परेशानी होती है. ऐसा बहुत कम होता है कि किसी व्यक्ति की रंग देखने की क्षमता ही चली जाए (इसे कहते मोनोक्रोमसी हैं). लोगों की ये धारणा गलत है कि कलर ब्लाइंडनेस से ग्रसित व्यक्ति सिर्फ काले और सफेद रंगों को ही देखने में सक्षम होता है. समाज में कलर ब्लाईंडनेस को लेकर चल रहे कई मिथकों में से एक ये भी है. आपको बता दें कि कलर ब्लाइंडनेस के कई अलग-अलग प्रकार और स्तर हैं. भारत में कलर ब्लाइंडनेस का प्रचलन पुरुषों में 8% और महिलाओं में केवल 0.5% है.

1. रंगीन फ़िल्टर
वर्तमान में, कलर ब्लाइंडनेस का कोई इलाज नहीं है. रंगीन फिल्टर या कॉन्टैक्ट लेन्स उपलब्ध हैं जो कि कुछ परिस्थितियों में इस्तेमाल किए जा सकते हैं (स्पष्ट दृष्टि बढ़ाने में मदद करने के लिए और रंगों को पहचानना आसान बनाने के लिए. लेकिन कई मरीज़ उन्हें असुविधाजनक मानते हैं. यदि आपको भी ये असुविधाजनक लगता है तो इसकी जगह अन्य तरीके आजमा सकते हैं जिसमें आप सुविधजनक महसूस करें. अब इसके कई तरह के विकल्प मौजूद हैं, आपको बस चुनना है.

2. रंगीन कांटेक्ट लेंस
रंगीन कॉन्टैक्ट लेंस रंगीन कॉन्टैक्ट लेंस कुछ रंगों को मंद या उज्ज्वल दिखा सकते हैं और कुछ रंग दृष्टि की कमियों में मदद कर सकते हैं. कुछ लोग यह दावा करते हैं कि एक आंख में लेंस पहनकर उनकी दृष्टि और कामकाज में मदद मिलती है. हालाँकि, ऐसा नहीं है कि वास्तव में लेंस उन्हें अधिक रंग देखने में मदद करते हैं. लेंस दृष्टि को धुंधला कर सकते हैं और अन्य खतरनाक परिस्थितियां भी बना सकते हैं.

3. इलेक्ट्रॉनिक आंख
इलेक्ट्रॉनिक आंख हाथ में पकड़ने वाला एक उपकरण है जो रंगों की पहचान करता है. इस उपकरण में, एक ऑडियो सिंथेसाइज़र होता है जो रंग की पहचान करके जोर से बोलता है. यदि आपके बच्चे को कलर ब्लाइंडनेस है तो आप रंगों की पहचान करने में उसकी मदद कर सकते हैं जैसे कपड़ों के रंग पहचानना, सहायक उपकरण इस्तेमाल करना, ट्रैफिक लाइट पर हरे, पीले और लाल रंगों की जगह की पहचान करवाना और संकेतों का अर्थ आकारों के आधार पर बताना. स्कूल में पढ़ने की चीज़ों में भी आपको बदलाव करना पड़ सकता है. शिक्षकों को सूचित करें कि आपके बच्चे के लिए रंगों से सम्बंधित कार्य उपयुक्त नहीं हैं.

4. हम भी कर सकते हैं उनकी मदद
आमतौर पर, कलर ब्लाइंडनेस से प्रभावित लोग अपनी हालत के साथ समायोजन करना सीख जाते हैं. आप कलर ब्लाइंडनेस से प्रभावित व्यक्ति की मदद इन प्रकारों से कर सकते हैं - दोस्तों या परिवार के सदस्यों से रंग समन्वय करने में मदद करवाना (यह विशेष रूप से गंभीर कमी के मामलों में आवश्यक है). घर में उचित रोशनी का होना सुनिश्चित करना और काम करने की जगह का रंगों में भेद करने में मदद करने के लिए पर्याप्त होना सुनिश्चित करना. शिक्षकों को समस्या के बारे में सूचित करना ताकि सीखने की चीज़ों को संशोधित किया जा सके या शिक्षण विधियों को समायोजित किया जा सके.
