Rising Eye Stroke Cases During Heatwaves

Rising Eye Stroke Cases During Heatwaves: Different parts of the country are experiencing an increase in eye stroke cases amid a severe heatwave.

Heatwave can negatively impact overall eye health because it can cause dehydration, leading to dry eyes and irritation. Eye stroke occurs when there is insufficient blood flow to the front portion of the optic nerve.

Eye stroke symptoms

  • Vision loss or blurry vision suddenly
  • Visual field loss (loss of peripheral vision)
  • Sudden onset of floaters
  • Pain or discomfort in the eye
  • Sudden dark or shadowy areas in vision
  • Visual distortions or defects (e.g., wavy lines)
  • Sudden blindness in one eye

Eye stroke precautions

  • During heatwaves, drink plenty of water.
  • Protect your eyes from harmful UV rays by wearing UV-protective sunglasses.
  • Make sure you eat a balanced diet, including fruits, vegetables, and antioxidant-rich foods.
  • Maintain a healthy cardiovascular system by exercising regularly.
  • Improve blood circulation by quitting smoking.
  • Maintain your overall health by limiting alcohol consumption.
  • Mediation, yoga, or deep breathing exercises can help you manage stress.

If you have risk factors for eye stroke, schedule regular eye check-ups with an eye specialist.
