Vision Problems In The Elderly | mumbaieyecare
Introduction

The human eye is a specialized sensory organ. It captures and detects visual images. It carries visual informationto the brain. The human eye includes the cornea, pupil, lens, iris, retina, optic nerves, aqueous and vitreous humour & photoreceptors.

The eyes have several muscles that allow a person to look in different directions without any head movement. These muscles operate through various cranial nerves such as the abducens, the trochlear, and the oculomotor nerves.

Ageing is a slow and natural process that initiates in early adulthood. Many functions of the body gradually decline due to ageing. Increasing in age can lead to several changes in eyes and their vision. Eye problems are common during ageing. However, several measures help in maintaining the optimum health of the eyes.

Why are Seniors more sensitive to eye problems?
Changes that happen in old age are:

It becomes harder to focus on any object for longtime
It is difficult to see in dim light.
The lens becomes yellow or brown.
Eyes become dry due to less production of fluid
The number of nerve cells decreases.
The ageing process may also affect the production of tears. There is a decrease in tear production that is important to provide sufficient moisture to the eyes. Insufficiency in the amount of liquid may cause dry eyes.

In middle age, the lens of the eyes becomes less flexible. The thickness of the lenses reduces, and the ability to focus on a nearby object is also impaired. It is known as presbyopia.

Common eye problems in elderly
Increasing age interfere with several body functions. It may cause various eye problems. These are presbyopia, dry eyes, cataract, glaucoma, conjunctivitis, eyelid problems, and retinal disorders. Retinal disorders include age-related macular degeneration (AMD), Diabetic Retinopathy, and Retinal detachment.

Presbyopia: It is a condition in which the eye lens becomes less flexible, less thick & cause difficulty to focus on nearby objects.

Dry eyes: The condition occurs when tear production is less. It leads to severe dryness in the eyes.

Cataract: Human eye has lenses to focus on the object. These lenses made up of proteins. Protein molecules of the lenses form clusters and cause blurred vision. The condition is known as a cataract. A cataract develops in the elderly. Replacing lenses with artificial lenses is the cataract treatment.

Glaucoma: Glaucoma occurs when the pressure of fluid within the eyes increases. It can damage the optic nerve. Loss of vision is a slow process in glaucoma. The use of eye drops to treat glaucoma is effective, but sometimes eye surgery becomes necessary.

Retinal disorders: Retinal disorders become the reason behind most blindness cases in the present time. The retina is the back lining of the eyes having many cells responsible for the visualization of images. The cells also have the function is to transfer images to the brain. Retinal disorders interfere with the functioning of cells during the transfer of visuals to the brain.

Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) :Macula is a central region of the retina having many light-sensitive cells. The function of the macula is facial recognition and reading. It may cause vision loss but does notresponsible for total blindness.
Diabetic retinopathy : It is a complication that occurs due to diabetes in which the supply of oxygen to the retina becomes impaired. It results in many vision problems.Laser treatment is usually a preferred treatment to prevent vision loss.
Conjunctivitis: The inflammation of the transparent covering of the eyeball is known as conjunctivitis. The eye appears pink in this condition. The doctor may prescribe antibiotics or antiallergics to manage the symptoms of this disease.

Prevention
The elderly may prevent or delay the occurrence or slow down the eye problems through the following measures:

The routine ocular examination by a doctor
Treatment of many eye problems possible if they found early. You need to visit your ophthalmologist and test your eyesight for glaucoma or cataract.
People who have a family history of eye disease and diabetes need to examine pupil dilation at least once a year to prevent eye problems.
If you experience a sudden loss of vision, blurred vision, redness, swelling, teary eyes and pain, consult with an ophthalmologist.
Conclusion
Ocular diseases may occur at any age. However, the elderly are at increased risk for developing various eye diseases. It is due to ageing and reducing the functioning of several tissues. However, it is simple to maintain good eye health by regular eye examinations and keep your body healthy. Diet also plays a significant role in maintaining healthy eyes. Severe eye conditions may treat by surgeries.

Is Cataract Surgery Safe To Do During Covid? | mumbaieyecare
Introduction

In a cataract, the vision of the eyes become blurry due to the opacification of the lens. A cataract is a second major cause of visual impairment and preventable blindness. Cataract surgery is one of the most common procedures to improve vision and prevent blindness across the world.

Average monthly cataract surgeries performed in India are over 5 lakhs. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, sudden cancellation in surgical procedures has created significant backlogs in cataract surgery.

Does Cataract Surgery Had A Risk Of Covid-19 Exposure?
It is necessary to understand how the coronavirus can infect you. A virus can infect you in two ways. One way is by inhaling the aerosols produced during coughing or sneezing by an infected person. Another way of spreading the virus is when a person touches the nose, eyes or mouth with infected hands. Wearing masks, avoiding touching the face and practising hand hygiene can lower the risk of contracting COVID-19.

In cataract surgery, there is no or minimal aerosol production. The patient’s face is covered with a sterile drape during the surgery. Further, the surgeons take all the precautions as per the surgical protocol of COVID-19, such as wearing personal protective equipment. The surgery takes around 10-15 minutes, and thus, the exposure time to acquire infection is low. Hence, the risk of getting infected through the covid 19 viruses is less during surgery.

When To Have Cataract Surgery In Current Pandemic
A cataract is a progressive condition that means the clouding of your lens will increase over time. The surgery depends on the functional level of the lens. Unless the vision of the patients gets severely compromised, delaying surgery has no increment in risk. Your doctor will evaluate the condition of your lens in context with your risk that may occur due to your daily activities such as driving, reading and cooking.

The doctor will keep an eye on your complete vision examination and decide how much a surgeon can restore the vision by removing the cataract. In some cases, delaying the cataract may result in permanent blindness. Take the advice of an expert ophthalmologist in your area.

People can delay cataract surgery by wearing sunglasses to prevent eyes from ultraviolet rays. The patient should stop smoking and start consuming green vegetables, fruits and food that have antioxidant properties. A person should have controlled diabetes and Blood pressure. A regular eye examination can also help to avoid surgery during the covid 19 pandemics.

Measures To Follow While Taking Cataract Treatment
You should always follow the COVID-19 precautionary measures, i.e., at the doctor’s clinic and before and after the cataract surgery. You may also have the option for telemedicine to consult with your doctor.

At the doctor’s clinic

The patient should fix an appointment for a consultation to reduce the time for waiting. He should wear a mask and gloves to prevent physical contact to any surface in the clinic. The patient should use digital payment modes to avoid unnecessary physical contact. He should avoid talking to other patients. Reduce the baggage to the clinic prevents exposure to the infected surface. The patient should maintain social distancing while seated in the clinic. After surgery, the patient can consult with a professional through telemedicine to reduce the chance of getting infected.

Before and after the cataract surgery

The patient should wear a mask before entering the diagnostic room. He should use a hand sanitiser provided by the hospital. Its use is compulsory for both patient and health care worker. Only one patient should allow along with an attendee into the diagnostic room. Cleaning of all instruments in the diagnostic area is necessary before the surgery. The patient is advised not to touch any surface of the premises.

Option for telemedicine

Telemedicine is an excellent option to maintain social distancing and seeking advice from an ophthalmologist. It results in decreasing physical contact and reduces cross-infection among patients and health care personnel. It reduces unnecessary gatherings and reduces the risk of infection.

Conclusion
Cataract surgery is elective surgery. However, sometimes, the prolonged, untreated cataract may result in compromised vision. Cataract surgery, if done will all the COVID-19 safety protocols, is safe, and there are very minimal chances of spreading infection. Patients should consult over the phone with the ophthalmologist, whenever possible, to reduce the risk of COVID-19. Patient after cataract surgery should avoid contact with other people and minimize travel.

In addition, the screen should be placed at the level of your eyes or slightly below the level of your eyes.
Use eye drops: When working on a computer for a long time then, the blinking process is slowed down during working hours, and as a result, this results in eye strain. Using an eye drop will relieve you from eye strain and tired eyes.
Wear proper eye protection: Using proper eyeglasses can help stop the harmful blue rays from entering your eyes.
Correct the lightening of your surrounding: The lightening of the environment you are working is very important. The light should not be either too bright or too dim. It should be according to the suitability of the eye such that it would not strain the eyes.

This cornea surgery procedure is for various diseases, including Dystrophy, corneal arcus, dry eyes, and keratoconus. Patients only have to schedule an appointment first before taking a cornea surgery procedure. They can call the phone numbers or directly visit the clinic. People can also download the brochure at the official website to know the programs they can take. The hospital head added, “The specialist will decide one of the cornea surgery procedures patients have to take. Nowadays, the cornea surgery in Mumbai consists of 3 different advanced treatments, which are laser treatment, Corneal transplant surgery, and artificial cornea.”

Dr. Jatin Ashar as a specialist in this hospital, will lead the surgery based on the patients’ medical history. The program’s goal is to ensure that people in Ghatkopar, Mumbai, and other areas get proper cornea medical treatments. They don’t have to go to other countries and spend a lot of money only to get cornea surgery. The hospital head stated, “We hope that finding a cornea specialist in Mumbai is not a problem anymore. Patients can consult their cornea and eye problems with us and find the most possible solutions. Besides offering a cornea specialist, our hospital also supports the cornea surgery program with the latest technology. The idea is to increase the curable and safety level during the surgery procedure.”

The hospital head also expects that this program helps treat specific cornea conditions, including eye allergies, keratitis, ocular herpes, herpes zoster, and many more. The better the treatment the patients get, the higher the chance of the patients having normal vision. Indeed, it also increases their quality of life because they can do their activities normally. On the other hand, cornea surgery prevents serious health problems because of improper medical treatments.
