To the optical properties of the eye were normal, ocular pressure must be constant. The complexity of determining the increase in pressure in that it does not manifest itself. And so unnoticed may manifest glaucoma. Which in turn about 30 % of cases) can lead to complete blindness. Heaviness in the eyes, fast fatigue, and fatigue may indicate a slight increase in intraocular pressure. In case of appearance of such symptoms is needed as early as possible to see a specialist - an ophthalmologist. He will examine and prescribe treatment.

To identify changes in the body, it is necessary to periodically measure the eye pressure. This procedure is not pleasant, but necessary. Plus of it is that it is absolutely painless.

Another way to measure eye pressure, incidentally, is more accurate than palpation. It is held with the help of special devices-weights - heart rate monitors. In this study, the patient lies. The doctor makes a local anaesthetic, then places a dot on the center of the cornea. The result of the measurement is determined by the contact area with the cornea. The more pressure, the less pressed the cornea. On average, the ideal eye pressurem is considered to be 22 mm Hg.St.
If you carefully monitor their health, many troubles can be avoided. And even more difficult to visit an ophthalmologist every six months and measure eye pressure.
