Nephrotic Syndrome and Blurred Vision

Nephrotic Syndrome and Blurred VisionBlurred vision is a common eye problem that caused by visual disturbances. It is generally described as the inability to clearly see or outline details and/or loss of sharpness of vision. One person with Nephrotic Syndrome may experience blurred vision due to the following causes.

1. Side effect of drugs

Medications like corticosteroids are used to treat Nephrotic Syndrome to help relieve the symptoms. This medication may have unwanted adverse effects such as blurred vision, swelling of the body (face, lips, tongue, or throat), infection, muscle cramps, etc.

2. Retinopathy

Retinopathy refers to a condition where the small blood vessels in the eyes become impaired due to high blood pressure or Diabetes.

High blood pressure puts strain on the blood vessel walls, weakening them to point where they can break or burst. In case of Diabetes, high blood sugar levels can damage the tiny blood vessels in the eyes. Both types of retinopathy occur over time and symptoms are usually not felt until the damage is done.

3. Other causes

Other conditions that can also result in blurred vision also include:

Cataracts - the formation of a cloud over the lens of the eyes.

Glaucoma - it is found mostly in people suffering from Diabetes and diabetic retinopathy.

Migraines - a migraine is a serious headache characterized by pain in the head, scalp, or neck.

Blurred vision can be serious problem for people with Nephrotic Syndrome. Patients who develop this condition should be aware that their eyes are at risk. It is essential to speak to the kidney doctor and confirm the actual causes. Promptly managing this problem can prevent further damage to the eyes as well as help people manage Nephrotic Syndrome well.
