Wet Macular Degeneration
When macular degeneration affect pigment epithelial and neuroepithelial cause detachment, can vision loss or visual distortion, can be attributed to the Chinese as looking faint vague”:
when a small amount of bleeding into the vitreous opacities caused, in turn is a “clear shift clouds”: but if a lot of blood into the vitreous and cause sudden drop in vision who are classified as “blind violence” at home.
Macular degeneration mainly due to infirmity or dirty Qi declines congenital deficiency, liver depression, and spleen deficiency.
Spleen transport, the transport of spleen qi deficiency cannot be, insufficient blood and body fluids metaplasia; kidney deficiency is agitation, weakness, and the main water reservoirs fine features dereliction of duty, resulting in water solution or phlegm retention.
The pathological product of early macular degeneration demonstrated drusen the more for us. Phlegm-fire burns Yu Long-blood contact, because the liver stores blood, stagnation of liver blood deficiency, not wing head, liver Yu Jiu sheng does not transfer heat, chemical burns network, in addition to the spleen is not the Blood, can also cause blood not Xinchang Road the overflow in the envelope, the outer envelope made of blood stasis, phlegm aggravate the condition, caused by macular degeneration late phlegm, liver, blood stasis complicated clinical manifestations, making the eyes appear recurrent bleeding, bleeding and pathological neovascularization and scar formation.
What is the cause of age-related macular degeneration?
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) has two type ‘type dry’ and ‘wet-type’ categories. Dry type is most common. Due to the light-sensitive cells of the retina slowly break down, resulting in the affected eye becomes blurred central vision. Cause of the disease is unclear, but the symptoms can worsen with age.
‘Type wet’ age-related macular degeneration is due to abnormal growth of blood vessels, causing blood and protein leakage, damage sensitive photo receptor cells and lead to blindness.
The most common symptoms of dry age-related macular degeneration are slightly blurred vision, facial recognition, you may have difficulty reading or doing other things that need more light. Dry macular degeneration usually affects both eyes, but there is also a decreased vision while the other eye seems to be not involved.
Drusen macular degeneration is one of the most common early signs of dry. Drusen are yellow deposits under the retina, usually seen in people over the age of 60. Drusen can be found through a comprehensive dilated fundus examination.
Dry age-related macular degeneration can be divided into three phases, it can occur in one or both eyes
- Early age-related macular degeneration: an early age-related macular degeneration patients seen several small drusen or a few medium-sized. This asymptomatic and vision loss.
- The mid-term age-related macular degeneration: the medium-term age-related macular degeneration patients seen many medium-sized or one or more large drusen some fuzzy dark spots may appear in the center of the field, leading to read or do transactions require more light.
- Late dry age-related macular degeneration: advanced macular degeneration in elderly patients with dry drusen in addition to the destruction, as well as the central area of the retina photo receptor cells and supporting tissue, which leads to destruction of the fuzzy dark spots become larger and darker, so you more central vision loss, you may have to read and identify the difficulties face.
