You may sometimes find it difficult to read things that are at a little distance from you! The condition is identified as myopia in medical terms and should never be taken casually, which is a progressive disorder. Myopia can be referred to as nearsightedness is generally expressed with the symptoms like squinting, eye strain, headaches that may lead to blurry central vision. The condition can be very common and generally be managed with the help of contact lenses or glasses. Although myopia, if not cured or managed within the initial time frame, pathological myopia may lead to degenerative eye disorders, such as retinal detachment or glaucoma.
Unfortunately, more and more people are being affected by the nearsightedness and the reason behind it is not well proved. Many eye doctors answer that it might have something to do with eye fatigue from computer use and other extended near vision tasks, coupled with a genetic predisposition for myopia. Myopia occurs when the eyeball is too long, in comparison to the focusing power of the cornea and lens of the eye. This causes light rays to focus at a point in front of the retina, rather than directly on its surface. Nearsightedness also can be caused by the cornea and/or lens being too curved for the length of the eyeball. In some cases, myopia is due to a combination of these factors.
Myopia can be exhibited in a very young age for individuals with a genetic predispositions. Pathological myopia can be referred to as a condition with very high myopia, showing signs and symptoms of degenerative changes at the back of your eye; leading to the eyesight reduction. Some of the degenerative conditions that are related to myopia can be listed as follows:
The overstretching of the retina can cause it to be thinner, leading to retinal atrophy. The areas of the retina that have been thinned down can affect the structural as well as the functional integrity of the eye due to major cellular loss. The condition can be judged with a pale look of the retina and visibly apparent blood vessels behind the retina. If the condition is ignored for a longer period of time, it may lead to blind patches or sight loss.
Lattice regeneration can be attributed to the thinning of certain parts of the retina, preferably at the edge; the cause of which is yet to be identified. Some specialists think it to be because of dryness or harmful sunrays, and hence offer laser therapy and/or cryotherapy in order to prevent further progression to retinal detachment.
New Blood vessel formation
In some people, new blood vessels can grow underneath the retina, generally referred to as neovascularization. It is to be noted that these vessels are very tiny as well as fragile that are susceptible to the leakage; causing retinal damage and swelling.
The traditional treatment approach is not successful in reversing the damage to the tissue; but with the great progress in the field of stem cells, it is now possible to bring back the normal vision using easy and natural process.
Stem cells are the naive cells of the body, which are able to differentiate into many types of cells if directed through proper channels. Thus, stem cells isolated from your own tissues such as bone marrow or adipose tissues can be channelized to be corneal cells, photoreceptor cells, optic nerves, muscle cells, etc. in the eye to regain its normal function back.
Patients suffering from different eye related ailments are treated by implanting stem cells through retrobulbar or other effective modes to obtain maximum recovery. Advancells is excited by the prodigious prospects of stem cells in treating various diseases; hence we are constantly updating our knowledge and technology to suit unique specifications of each patient. Our principle objective has always been a cessation of disease progress and easing the quality of life to a considerable extent. We are always pledged to deliver safe treatment pattern, by offering “Autologous stem cells from your own Bone Marrow/Adipose Tissue”
