Eye retina dystrophy - very dangerous disease which threatens with total loss of sight. Terrible is that in the beginning the disease proceeds asymptomatically. The retina is responsible for perception of the image, and in her dystrophy its food is broken. There is it for the reason that there are disturbances in the vascular system of an eye, there is forming of a hem and loss of the central area of a retina then there is only a peripheral sight. It means that the person is able to distinguish day of night and to see indistinct contours of objects side sight, and here in the center of the image simply is absent.
Dystrophy of a retina arises when traumatizing an eye, in a hypertension, in diseases of kidneys and adrenal glands, a pancreas, in a pseudorheumatism, in a scleroderma, etc. The option of developing of dystrophy of a retina as complications after the postponed flu is possible. Both average and high degree of short-sightedness can be the reason.
Peripheral changes of an eyeground come to light only at inspection with use of the special equipment. And here the illness symptomatology often simply is absent. It is only occasionally possible to hear from patients of the complaint on<мушки в глазах><вспышки молний>. Gaps and amotio of a retina can be followed by sudden decrease in sight and emergence of a veil before eyes. In this case operational treatment is shown. But even successfully performed operation cannot guarantee recovery of quality of sight to initial level.
Mostly, the disease has hereditary character, and the beginning prevails at young age. In the beginning the person can experience deterioration in twilight sight, at preservation of day. Then it is observed progressing visual field constriction to pipe. At inspection the pigmentary centers and an atrophy of an optic nerve are found.
If to speak about natural protection of our eyes, then it is necessary to mention lutein which protects an eye retina from a blue part of a range of a daylight which is the most aggressive. Also, lutein belongs to the category of powerful antioxidants and suppresses education of free radicals, thereby interfering with destruction of a retina and a cataract. Lutein gets to our organism together with food, the organism independently does not synthesize it. Most of all it can be found in pepper and spinach.
You should not be mistaken and on the fact that dystrophy of a retina of an eye is a destiny of people of old age, the youth has to treat the health not less carefully. Several types of dystrophies are known to medicine therefore also treatment in each case is required individual.
To my father 63 years he suffers the fourth year of dystrophy of a retina of an eye of each 6 months he takes a course treatment but the ulushcheniye is not noticed that advise to do to us to us
I have a narrowed field of vision whether at night bad orientation at treatment of dystrophy of a retina will improve my state
my sister has an eye retina dystrophy. It can be cured?

Homeopathic therapy of patients with an open angle glaucoma.
Scientific research institute of eye diseases of Helmholtz, Moscow.
Despite an extensive arsenal of heteropathic medicines, achievements of microsurgical and laser surgeries, treatment of glaucoma remains a serious medico-social problem. The prevalence of glaucoma among persons is more senior than 40 years in Russia and industrially developed countries of the West reaches 1.7%. Therefore the problem of conservative treatment of glaucoma is current. In recent years considerably interest in the homeopathic methods of treatment allowing to expand an arsenal of therapy of various diseases increased.
On modern representations, glaucoma the chronic disease of an organ of sight which is characterized by continuous or periodic increase in the intraocular pressure (VGD) with development of dystrophic disorders in the front outflow tracts of watery moisture, a retina and an optic nerve causing emergence of typical defects under review and development of regional (glaukomatozny) excavation of an optic nerve. It is remarkable that visual functions quite often continue to worsen even at normalization of VGD, and pathology of an optic nerve which atrophy occurs owing to deterioration in its blood circulation is an immediate cause of a blindness in glaucoma. Now it is accepted to carry primary open angle glaucoma (POUG) to multifactorial diseases. In pathogenesis of POUG a certain role belongs to genetic, biomechanical, immunological and biochemical factors, a condition of trabecular network, a ratio of intracranial and intraocular pressure. On modern views in pathogenesis of glaucoma major factors are hemodynamic disturbances not only in a front segment of an eye, but also in a retina and an optic nerve.
Now studying the central mechanisms of regulation of VGD continues. The role of dysfunction of a hypothalamus, limbic structures and also a stress is investigated.
The value of emotional and stressful factors in an etiology and pathogenesis of glaucoma does not raise doubts. However in many cases the disease arises and develops imperceptibly for the patient. Often only significant changes of a field of vision (corresponding to the second or third stage of a disease) force the patient to see a doctor. In it an identity and insidiousness of a disease. At the same time the diagnosis<глаукома> in itself is a stressful factor for the patient in view of possible development of a blindness.
Drug treatment of glaucoma is carried out in three main directions: - oftalmogipotenzivny therapy (local and the general) for normalization of VGD; - the therapy promoting improvement of blood supply of internal covers of an eye and front department of an optic nerve; - the therapy directed to normalization of metabolism in eye tissues for the purpose of impact on the dystrophic processes characteristic of glaucoma.
Throughout the last century at treatment of glaucoma along with heteropathic various homeopathic medicines were used: Aconitum, Aurum, Arnica, Lachesis, Ruta, Sulphur, Nux vomica, Belladonna, Gelsemium, Ignatia, Conium, Natrium mureaticum and others. At the same time homeopathic remedies of both constitutional, and drainage and organotropic action were applied . Pathogenetic justification and clinical performance of a homeopathic method of treatment in ophthalmology are studied insufficiently.
In our clinic the research for the purpose of the choice pathogenetic of the focused homeopathic medicines and studying their influence on dynamics of visual functions is conducted.
Treatment there underwent 64 patients aged from 51 up to 89 years with POUG (the first or fourth stages) and the various accompanying pathology: hypertension, cerebral atherosclerosis, diabetes and other diseases. 10 patients have an aphakia (13 eyes), from them at the 5th a cataract of a pair eye; an artifakiya at 8 (10 eyes), and at 5 of them maturing of a cataract on other eye; an initial or unripe cataract at 23 (43 eyes). Thus, at most of patients 50 (78.1%) on 74 eyes (57.8%) the glaucoma was complicated by a cataract. At 34 (53.1%) patients on 48 eyes antiglaukomatozny operations are earlier made.
At all patients defined visual acuity, investigated a field of vision on semi-spherical perimeter. Carried out biomicroscopy, an oftalmoskopiya, a tonometriya and a tonografiya, a gonioskopiya. Besides, investigated the central field of vision on computer perimeter<Хамфри>. Duration of observation fluctuated from three months to two years.
At the majority of sick VGD it was compensated and did not exceed 25 mm Hg. However at 14 (21.9%) patients on one of earlier operated eyes the increase in VGD was noted (to 38 mm Hg.). In the course of treatment at most of them VGD went down. Average size VGD before treatment was 22.68 mm Hg., after 20.98 mm Hg. At 7 patients incidental increases in VGD were observed. All patients were treated concerning POUG in various medical institutions for 116 years earlier. All patients continued to use (to dig in) earlier appointed hypotensive drugs (arutimol, Timololum, pilocarpine or their combinations). Observation of patients was made in the first 3 months every two-three weeks, then every one and a half-two months.
As basic means at 25 patients used complex homeopathic medicine traumel, influencing all main types of a metabolism in the beginning. Traumel appointed on one tablet under language three times a day within a month. At the same time at 9 patients dynamics of change not only visual functions, but also biochemical and immunological indicators was studied. As revealed our researches, use traumelya and other homeopathic remedies in most cases brings: - to decrease in level of cholesterol without use of any special diets and holesterinsnizhayushchy drugs; - to normalization of the changed indicators of T-cellular and antibody-mediated immunity and autoimmune disorders that characterizes immunomodulatory effect of homeopathic treatment.
Then at other 39 patients as basic means instead of traumelya began to use consistently two monodrugs Sulphur (sulfur) and Phosphorus (phosphorus). Sulphur applied at the first reception, after holding homeopathic poll and ophthalmologic inspection, in 30-centesimal potency three grains once. Then appointed reception of Phosphorus in 6-centesimal potency on three-five grains under language three times a day within a month. Why these drugs were chosen?
Therapeutic effect of sulfur is widely used in medicine since the most ancient times in diseases of skin, joints and as laxative. Organic compounds of sulfur as a part of sulfanamide drugs and methylthiouracil in a thyrotoxicosis are widely applied. Sulfur often is useful in initial stages of treatment of chronic patients who are almost always irritable and inclined to a depression. Sulfur influences eyes at the following symptoms and states: iridescent circles around a flame of a lamp, turbidity of a cornea and a vitreous, an iritis, a cataract. Sulfur promotes resorption of serous exudates and hematomas, is the metabolism catalyst in a liver (reticuloendothelial system) and in digestive organs; has holeretichesky effect, reduces venous stagnation in various bodies (venomotor means). It is applied as resorptive means at all chronic exudates as reactive in an initiation of treatment of all chronic diseases as intermediate in areactive cases. Among links of a pathogenetic chain in glaucoma the important place is taken by hemodynamic disturbances which, according to a number of scientists, are leaders in the pathological processes arising in various structures of an eye. It is shown that in glaucoma not only the arterial inflow to fabrics, but also venous outflow is broken. The normalizing effect of homeopathic medicines (including a sulfura) was known 100 years ago. Really, unlike heteropathic vasodilating medicines, sulfur does not reduce the level of arterial blood pressure. Now it is established that after irrational use of heteropathic drugs perfusion pressure in the small vessels supplying with blood front department of an optic nerve can decrease considerably. Besides, low system arterial blood pressure against the background of not profound intraocular hypertensia can provoke ischemic damages to fabrics of an optic disk. It is observed not only at chronically low arterial blood pressure, but also in hemodynamic crises which can provoke glaukomny injuries of an optic nerve. Our experience demonstrates efficiency of a sulfur in eye pathology, however hemodynamic action of a sulfur needs further study.
Let's stop on physiological action of Phosphorus. Phosphorus in the form of phosphoric acid is a part of the enzymes-phosphatases participating in exchange of fats, carbohydrate metabolism (synthesis and disintegration of starch and a glycogen). Phosphorus is especially important for tissues of a brain and neurons. Phosphorus is a part of kernels of cells, intercellular lymphs and affects all bodies and main types of a metabolism. Owing to versatility of the action in homeopathy phosphorus is considered one of cardinal means (polikhrest) at treatment of diseases of nervous, bone and cardiovascular systems. Phosphorus is effective in a cataract, opacities of the vitreous body, an atrophy of an optic nerve, glaucoma, thrombosis of vessels of a retina and degenerative changes of cells of a retina. Apparently and on our material, glaucoma often is complicated by a cataract. Also frequent progressing of a cataract at the operated patients with glaucoma with the normalized VGD and hypotonia is noted. Thus, phosphorus covers development of visual disturbances, many of the major pathogenetic factors, in glaucoma.
Further to each patient individually selected constitutional drugs. Duration of one course of treatment varied from one and a half to three months.
In the course of treatment practically all patients noted improvement of overall health, normalization of a dream, increase in working capacity and resistance to external irritants. Significant improvement of the state of health is noted at 43 (67.2%) patients. Positive takes of treatment in the form of increase in visual acuity at 26 (40.6%) patients on 36 (28.1%) eyes; expansion of peripheral borders of a field of vision or reduction of number of relative and absolute scotomas is noted at 26 (40.6%) patients on 40 (62.5%) eyes. Simultaneous increase in visual acuity and improvement of a field of vision was observed at 10 (15.6%) patients. The average level of VGD before treatment was 22.7 mm Hg., after treatment doubtfully went down to 21 mm Hg. Stabilization of visual functions is noted at 27 (42.2%) patients on 45 (35.1%) eyes. Negative dynamics from visual functions at 5 (7.8%) patients, from them increase in the VGD level at 2 patients that demanded, despite strengthening of local hypotensive therapy, operational treatment.
We assume that homeopathic medicines reduce the complications connected with use of local hypotensive drugs. So, for example, it is known that at long instillations of Timololum (overwhelming number of our patients received this drug) the following complications of the general character were noted: from the central nervous system the depression, feeling of alarm, a diplopia, dysarthrias, obsessions, noise in the head, disturbances of taste, a tranzitorny headache, fatigue, a memory impairment are noted; from a cardiovascular system bradycardia, arrhythmia, hypotonia or a hypertension; from respiratory organs an asthma, a bronchospasm. Complications from eyes: fast development of a cataract, hemorrhage to the macular area, etc. Traumel, sulfur, phosphorus and other homeopathic medicines used by us reduce the collateral symptoms caused by heteropathic therapy. Therefore, it is possible to assume that homeopathic medicines at their appointment according to the law of similarity can be converters of side resorptive effect of an auritimol (Timololum) and other heteropathic hypotensive eye drops.
Thus, the obtained data confirm clinical performance and consequently, prospects of use of homeopathic medicines in complex treatment of glaucoma in combination with local hypotensive therapy.

I.e., treatment at the homeopath, is therapy option including eye retina dystrophies. Basic means, apparently from article, complex homeopathic medicine: Traumel. But, the efficiency of treatment considerably will increase if the doctor picks up to the patient constitutional medicine.
whether it is possible to return though for several percent sight at the diagnosis eye retina dystrophy
Diabetes. there are questions where to address
Tell please. it is how effective at treatment of dystrophy of a retina drug gistokhry?
It would be desirable to learn, somewhere it can be possible about to operate. I am 45 years old. Retina dystrophy since 1995, shortsightedness-11, an astigmatism.
Where the most koipetentny doctors for treatment of dystrophy of a retina, including abroad?
prompt, I have a retina dystrophy, high short-sightedness, sight falls, the left eye sees only a silhouette of the person, right-8, I turn out I see only one eye. would like to learn where I will be able to be helped with treatment whether there are such doctors.!
at the niece retina dystrophy from an infection bifurcation still she began to complain of the second eye after underwent treatment that can be ei only 20 years further
I have a retina dystrophy inborn, am flown all life of improvements is not present, just supporting effect now to me 32 Gave birth to the child, through Caesarian, decreased sight during pregnancy the MAIN THING NOT to LOSE COURAGE!!!))))

Hello! At my mom, on inspection of doctors the diagnosis "an inborn, inherited disorder of a retina of an eye" .do is revealed 30 years she saw all but the eyesight was poor, in 31 years gave rise after that the sight promptly began to decrease. Now it has the 1st group of disability. Now it saw only light, can distinguish day of night, but also the inonogd is conducted by silhouettes. Now she is 44 years old, very much would like wanted to help the mom! Advise something and whether is though small hope for recovery!!!
