The consequences of keratitis

This files most often have all keratitis onset of the disease occurs in acute form. They are characterized by a long period – up to 6 weeks or more (this difference herpes category). Recorded cases of recurrent processes. Flows rapidly, for example, superficial traumatic keratitis – it may be about a week. The long development of keratitis may be explained by considering the power of the cornea. These cells don't have their own vessels, as well as they very slowly proceed metabolic processes. The keratitis can be complications. Among them – the influence of the inflammatory process in the anterior uveal tract (i.e. keratouveitis), which arises due to the close location and single source processes, blood supply and innervation.

Scarring as a consequence of the keratitis

In the final keratitis is strictly in the area of inflammatory infiltrate scar blurred, the area of which depends on the nature of the process of resorption. This means that total corneal opacity produced fewer inflammatory infiltrate. Blurred scarring from the inflammatory infiltrate can be distinguished by several characteristic features. For example, clear boundaries of the first and the lack of any evidence of inflammation. Can you describe the process on the level of intensity, and extent of turbidity. On these grounds there are three types of possible disease outcomes.

A cloud (nubecula) is called the gentle dimness. It is difficult to fix. In medicine for these purposes, used methods of objective examination of the affected organ. If the location is Central – there might be a risk of deterioration of visual acuity. Spot (macula) is called visible under normal conditions is sufficiently intense, but a little blurred. A thorn (leycoma) is considered to be intensive, substantial clouding. If the cataract covers the whole cornea, it is called a total, but if his region are soldered to the surface of the iris (but in the same time the anterior chamber is of uneven depth), it will be classified as adherent. There are times when a thorn penetrated by blood vessels – then it is called vascularized. There is a classification that is used to determine the treatment and indications for surgery, in keratoplasty (i.e., corneal transplant) – thus treating blindness from cataracts.

V. P. Filatov developed a special technique, thanks to her blindness, the cause of which becomesthorn was able to relate to curable. Filatov has mastered the transplant corneal transplant not from a living organism and from cadaver eyes that did keratoplasty acceptable in almost all cases.

The parameters of the frequency of certain forms of keratitis may vary quite markedly. It is not only territorial but also temporal differences. On indicators of the influence of many etiological factors. With increasing incidence of tuberculosisthus tuberculosis keratitis are recorded more often, changes in the direction of increase the statistics of herpetic keratitis.
