About Sclerocornea

Sclerocornea, also known as isolated congenital sclerocornea, is related to linear skin defects with multiple congenital anomalies 1 and cornea plana. An important gene associated with Sclerocornea is SIX6 (SIX Homeobox 6), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Mesodermal commitment pathway and BMP signaling in eyelid development. Affiliated tissues include eye, skin and endothelial, and related phenotypes are Increased shRNA abundance (Z-score > 2) and Increased shRNA abundance (Z-score > 2)

Major Symptoms of Sclerocornea

Sclerocornea is a rare autoimmune disorder that primarily affects the corners of the cornea, resulting in symptoms such as persistent dryness, itching, and redness. In severe cases, it can cause corneal ulcers, cataracts, and even blindness.

Suitable Lifestyle for People with Sclerocornea

Sclerocornea is a hereditary eye disease characterized by corneal endothelial dystrophy and scarring. People with Sclerocornea need to pay special attention to eye health and lifestyle. Here are some suggestions:

1. Avoid exposure to the sun: The eye tissue of patients with Sclerocornea is fragile, and ultraviolet rays in the sun can easily cause eye inflammation and corneal damage, so Avoid going out for long periods of time when the sun is strong.

2. Keep your eyes clean: Sclerocornea patients are prone to eye infections, so they should clean their eyes regularly and avoid using overly irritating eye drops.

3. Eat a balanced diet: Sclerocornea patients need to consume enough vitamins A, C, E and K, as well as omega-3 fatty acids, to help protect eye tissue. It is recommended to eat more vegetables, fruits, fish, nuts and other foods.

4. Control weight: Sclerocornea patients need to maintain a healthy weight to reduce the burden of eye pressure. Avoid overeating and excessive drinking, which may worsen the condition.

5. Avoid smoking and second-hand smoke: Both smoking and second-hand smoke can aggravate the symptoms of Sclerocornea, so try to avoid smoking and exposure to second-hand smoke.

6. Maintain a good sleep routine: Sclerocornea patients need to maintain adequate sleep to help the eye tissue recover and repair. At the same time, avoid staying up late and overexerting yourself to avoid aggravating the condition.

7. Regular check-ups: Sclerocornea patients need to see an ophthalmologist for regular check-ups so that complications can be discovered and treated in time. In short, people with Sclerocornea need to pay special attention to eye health and lifestyle, maintain good living habits and regular check-ups to alleviate the condition and prevent complications.
