“5Years ago, I had an acute attack of glaucoma. At that time, my eyes were invisible but not painful. However, this acute attack was not only invisible, but also accompanied by eye pain and headache, which was unbearable! It was Director Li Fuhua who rescued me from pain and gave me hope in life again! “
It turns out that this year67Aunt Zhao, who is 10 years old, has a history of glaucoma for ten years. In the past ten years, she has been receiving physical therapy in the local hospital through medication. Until one night not long ago, the glaucoma in Aunt Zhao’s right eye had another acute attack. “My eyes hurt and my head hurt. It hurt so much that I couldn’t open my eyes, and eye drops didn’t work at all.” Aunt Zhao said distressedly.
So, under the introduction of a friend, Aunt Zhao came to Tianjin University Aier Eye Hospital to find Director Li Fuhua.After detailed examination by Director Li Fuhua, it was found that Aunt Zhao’s left eye vision was0.6intraocular pressure is19.5mmHgthe visual acuity of the right eye is0.4intraocular pressure as high as50.7mmHg, much higher than the normal intraocular pressure range. Based on various examination data, Aunt Zhao was diagnosed with mixed glaucoma in the right eye, lens dislocation in the right eye, primary acute angle-closure glaucoma in the left eye, senile nuclear cataract in both eyes, and vitreous opacity in both eyes.
Director Li Fuhua said,“The patient’s condition is relatively complicated. He has a history of glaucoma for ten years. This time it was an acute attack of glaucoma in his right eye due to lens dislocation. If not treated in time, long-term and huge pressure will compress the fragile optic nerve, causing optic nerve atrophy and inability to To reverse visual field damage, the top priority is to reduce intraocular pressure.” Therefore, Director Li Fuhua formulated a rigorous surgical treatment plan for Aunt Zhao. Director Li Fuhua performed cataract phacoemulsification combined with intraocular lens implantation and trabeculectomy with amniotic membrane transplantation on Aunt Zhao’s right eye. Subsequently, Aunt Zhao underwent cataract phacoemulsification combined with intraocular lens implantation and goniosynthesis in her left eye.The operation went very smoothly. After treatment, Aunt Zhao’s intraocular pressure in both eyes has dropped to10mmHgbinocular vision has also been greatly improved.
Aunt Zhao seemed very happy to have eliminated the eye pain and vision loss caused by the acute attack of glaucoma. But the good times did not last long. One week after the operation, Aunt Zhao suddenly suffered from a cold, which caused swelling and pain in her vision again. So Aunt Zhao came to Tianjin University Aier Eye Hospital again. Dr. Yang Lu from the glaucoma clinic saw Aunt Zhao. However, Aunt Zhao’s intraocular pressure was too high and the value could not be measured. Considering that the patient’s condition was critical, Yang Lu The doctor immediately called Director Li Fuhua for help. Director Li Fuhua rushed to the hospital from his home after receiving the call.After medication, Aunt Zhao’s intraocular pressure dropped to9mmHg. “I am really grateful to Director Li Fuhua. I have never met a doctor with such superb medical skills, kindness and patience as Director Li. During the treatment period, Director Li and all the doctors and nurses in the glaucoma department were particularly responsible for me. I am very touched by the sincere care for me like a family member!” Aunt Zhao said excitedly.
Director Li Fuhua said,“Once acute angle-closure glaucoma attacks, the symptoms are difficult to control. Not only do patients suffer from the disease, but they also damage the optic nerve and visual field. Especially in winter, cold stimulation and influenza are more likely to cause glaucoma attacks. Treatment of acute glaucoma We must race against time.” For the treatment of glaucoma, corresponding drug treatment can be carried out initially according to the patient’s intraocular pressure and visual field changes. If the intraocular pressure cannot be controlled through drugs, different surgeries need to be selected based on the intraocular pressure, visual field, and angle opening and closing conditions. way to control intraocular pressure. If you suddenly feel eye pain, headache, nausea and vomiting accompanied by blurred vision in daily life, you must seek medical advice in time, conduct relevant examinations under the guidance of a doctor, and determine a corresponding treatment plan according to your condition.
