Homeopathy Medicine for Scleritis
The eye’s sclera, which is also its white portion, is its protective outer layer and is attached to the muscles that support eye movement.
The type of scleritis you have depends on where the inflammation is, and it can be very painful. Scleritis is a disorder in which the sclera becomes severely inflamed and red.
Based on whether the disease affects the anterior (front) or posterior (back) of the sclera, Watson and Hayreh classification is used to distinguish between the various types of scleritis. The anterior forms are most likely to have an underlying illness as one of their causes.
Anterior scleritis has several subtypes, including:
- The most prevalent kind of scleritis is anterior.
- The second most frequent type of anterior scleritis is nodular.
- The most severe type of anterior scleritis is necrotizing anterior scleritis with inflammation.
- The most uncommon type of anterior scleritis is necrotizing anterior scleritis without inflammation.
- The variable symptoms of posterior scleritis, many of which resemble other disorders, make it more difficult to diagnose and detect.
The main symptom of scleritis is severe eye pain that doesn’t respond well to painkillers, which is likely to get worse when you move your eyes, and it may spread throughout your entire face, especially on the side of the affected eye. Each type of scleritis has similar symptoms, and they can get worse if the condition isn’t treated.
Other symptoms may include:
- excessive tearing, or lacrimation
- decreased vision
- blurry vision
- The fear of light is known as photophobia.
- the white of your eye, or the sclera, is red.
Because it does not produce the same level of intense pain as other types, the symptoms of posterior scleritis are less noticeable.
- deep-seated headaches
- eye movement-related discomfort
- eye irritation
- double vision
Scleritis can be painful for some people, but for others it can be mild or even painless.
- a milder case
- Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) with advanced stages occasionally develops scleromalacia perforans.
- prior use of immunosuppressive drugs, which block immune system activity, prior to the onset of symptoms
There are theories that the immune system’s T cells, which are responsible for destroying incoming pathogens, which are organisms that can cause disease or illness, start attacking the eye’s own scleral cells, which is thought to be the cause of scleritis. The immune system is a network of organs, tissues, and circulating cells that work together to prevent bacteria and viruses from causing illness.
Scleritis can strike at any age, is more common in women than in men, and is not associated with any particular racial group or geographical region.
- Inflammation of the blood vessels is a symptom of the uncommon disorder Wegener’s disease (Wegener’s granulomatosis).
- An autoimmune disease that causes joint inflammation is called rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
- digestive symptoms are brought on by the bowel inflammation that occurs as a result of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
- Dry mouth and eyes are common symptoms of the immune disorder Sjogren’s syndrome.
- Skin inflammation is brought on by the immune condition lupus.
- autoimmune disease may or may not be related to eye infections
- accident-induced eye tissue damage
