Dubai, United Arab Emirates – Quironsalud, experts in advanced eye care and vision restoration explains how crucial early diagnosis of Myasthenia Gravis to help manage its symptoms better. Specialists at Quironsalud describes the neuromuscular disorder:
“Myasthenia Gravis is a disorder that happens when the communication between the nerves and the muscles is impaired. This results to the weakening and rapid fatigue of the voluntary muscles on any part of the body including the ones surrounding the eyes. This causes the eye to droop and for affected individuals to experience double vision.”
Quironsalud stresses the importance of early diagnosis for this long term medical condition. They point out that early detection will help in managing the condition and developing a treatment plan.
“The goal of treatment is to improve the tone of the muscles and increase their function. This is especially significant for those who have existing eye conditions as the muscles surrounding the eyes are substantially affected by Myasthenia Gravis. Late diagnosis may worsen any eye condition. This is why early diagnosis is crucial to improve the quality of life for patients affected by this disorder.”
Experts further explain that watching out for its early signs is equally important. Some of its common symptoms are ptosis or droopy eyelids and double vision. Individuals can also consult an eye specialist for assessments.
“Assessments include blood analysis, the ice pack test which involves placing a bag filled with eyes on top of the eyelids. There is also a sleep test that includes keeping the eyes closed for 30 minutes while the movements of your eyes will be checked for Myasthenia Gravis.
Quironsalud states that it is crucial to seek the help of a trusted healthcare provider to help address the neuromuscular disorder. Meanwhile, their team is ready to help improve the quality of life of individuals suffering from other vision disorders including cataracts, glaucoma, presbyopia, and myopia.
