About Bilateral Optic Nerve Hypoplasia

Optic Nerve Hypoplasia, Bilateral, also known as optic nerve hypoplasia, is related to aniridia 2 and gillespie syndrome. An important gene associated with Optic Nerve Hypoplasia, Bilateral is PAX6 (Paired Box 6), and among its related pathways/superpathways is Transcriptional Regulatory Network in Embryonic Stem Cell. The drugs Hormones and Melatonin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include pituitary, eye and brain, and related phenotypes are optic nerve hypoplasia and optic disc hypoplasia

Major Symptoms of Bilateral Optic Nerve Hypoplasia

The main symptoms of Bilateral Optic nerve hypoplasia (bilateral choriocapillarisia) include:

1. Visual impairment: Patients may experience symptoms such as vision loss, blurring, and blindness, and may even cause eyeball atrophy.

2. Eye pain: Your eyes may feel sore, inflamed, or tired.

3. Blepharitis: Patients may develop blepharitis, conjunctivitis and other diseases.

4. Iridocyclitis: Patients may develop iridocyclitis, iritis and other diseases.

5. Protosis: The patient may feel that the eyeball protrudes forward, making it difficult for the eye to close normally.

6. Amblyopia: Patients may experience symptoms such as amblyopia and blurred vision.

7. Strabismus: Patients may experience symptoms such as strabismus and diplopia.

8. Blindness: In severe cases, patients may become blind due to bilateral choriocapillarisopenia.

Suitable Lifestyle for People with Bilateral Optic Nerve Hypoplasia

For patients with bilateral optical nerve hypoplasia, which is a reduction in the number of nerve fibers in the optic canal on both sides, this condition usually leads to symptoms such as decreased vision, eye pain, and dry eyes. Therefore, patients need to pay attention to the following points in their lifestyle:

1. Avoid long-term use of electronic products: Prolonged use of computers, mobile phones and other electronic products, such as TVs, computer games, etc. , can cause eye fatigue and aggravate the condition.

2. Control the time you use your eyes: When using electronic products, try to reduce the time you use them, and take a few minutes of rest every once in a while to keep your eyes away from the screen.

3. Maintain good eye habits: Maintaining correct eye posture, such as keeping a distance of about 20-30 inches from the computer screen, maintaining appropriate indoor lighting, etc. , can help reduce eye fatigue.

4. Strengthen eye exercises: Appropriate eye exercises, such as taking deep breaths with your eyes closed, moving your eyeballs up and down, rubbing your eyes, and other simple eye exercises can help relieve symptoms.

5. Maintain a good routine: Ensure adequate sleep and avoid overexertion, which can help relieve symptoms.

6. Follow the doctor's advice: Under the doctor's advice, formulate appropriate living habits according to the condition and strictly implement them.

7. Maintain a happy mood: A positive attitude helps recovery and avoids excessive anxiety and worry.
