8 Variety of Eye Disease

One mother told me about his son who contracted sore eyes at the school.

Initially in his class there is only one student who suffered from sore eyes. The next day sore eyes was contagious and infect dozens of other students.

Not reached a week, eventually nearly all students have red eyes, watery, and swollen.

Eye disease, as manifested Dr. Tjahjono Darminto Gondhowiardjo, Ph.D., Is contagious.

Transmission is usually through the media that intentionally or not, has touched the patient.

For example, patients discharged rubbed his eyes and then shook hands with others.

As a result the person may have contracted a similar illness.

However, although contagious, said Tjahjono, how to prevent eye disease is actually very simple, namely by separating the equipment / supplies that are used everyday people.

For example towels, blankets, or clothing.


Naturally, the eye actually have a mechanism to overcome their own problems.

For example, dust enters and makes eye smth will come out with just a wink repeatedly.

Only when a way that does not work and the eyes still red, so the first can be done is to encourage the child to rest and not leave the house temporarily in order to avoid severe inflammation in the eye.

Drug-counter eye drops may be used, but if after three times use of the eyes showed no symptoms improve then hurry went to the optometrist.

Tjahjono asserted, eye drops should not be used long term because it can cause inflammation / irritation sustainable.

"Eye drops using acidic chemicals that tend to cause stinging in the eyes.

Its function is also actually to reduce the irritation caused by dust or wind. However, eye pain due to infections caused by viruses or bacteria can not only overcome with the drops but need a more comprehensive treatment by an eye doctor, "says ophthalmologist from Jakarta Eye Centre.


To note, the eye disease is very diverse species and not all are infectious diseases.

Contagious eye disease that can be caused only by viruses or bacteria, while those caused by allergies are not contagious.

Efforts to cure sore eyes due to allergies can be done with routine treatment and keep the eye to be free from peemicu sources such as dust, dander, smoke, and others.

This is the variety of eye diseases and how to handle such expressed Tjahjono:

1. Conjunctivitis (CONTAGIOUS)

Is the irritation / inflammation caused by infection of the membrane that lines the eye. Symptoms eyes reddened, painful, watery, itchy, out of dirt (belekan), and vision (blurred).

Babies can also suffer from similar illnesses. It's just cause more because of infections that arise when passing through the birth canal.

Because of that, the baby is called conjunctivitis gonococcal disease. As is known, the birth is not sterile from certain germs which may cause infection.

Well, when the baby was born through the birth canal (vagina), he would have exposed to the germs that exist in that location.
