Introduction

Glasses symptom/complaint refers to the visual impairment experienced by individuals, leading to the need for corrective eyewear such as glasses. This condition is significant as it affects a large population and can have a significant impact on daily activities and quality of life. The aim of this guide is to provide healthcare professionals with a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and managing glasses symptom/complaint.

Codes

– ICPC-2 Code: F17 Glasses symptom/complaint
– ICD-10 Code: H52.7 Unspecified disorder of refraction

Symptoms

  • Blurred vision: Patients may complain of difficulty in seeing objects clearly, both near and far.
  • Double vision: Some individuals may experience seeing two images instead of one.
  • Eye strain: Patients may report discomfort or fatigue in the eyes, especially after prolonged visual tasks.
  • Headaches: Persistent headaches, especially after reading or using electronic devices, may be a symptom of glasses symptom/complaint.
  • Squinting: Patients may squint their eyes in an attempt to improve focus and clarity of vision.

Causes

  • Refractive errors: The most common cause of glasses symptom/complaint is refractive errors, including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. These conditions occur when the shape of the eye prevents light from focusing directly on the retina, leading to blurred vision.
  • Presbyopia: This age-related condition affects individuals over the age of 40 and is characterized by the loss of the eye’s ability to focus on close objects. It often requires the use of reading glasses.
  • Eye muscle imbalance: Strabismus, or misalignment of the eyes, can cause glasses symptom/complaint. When the eyes are not properly aligned, it can lead to double vision and difficulty in focusing.
  • Eye diseases: Certain eye conditions, such as cataracts or glaucoma, can cause visual impairment and may require the use of glasses.

Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Gather information about the patient’s symptoms, including the duration and severity of visual impairment.
  • Ask about any previous eye conditions or surgeries.
  • Inquire about any family history of refractive errors or eye diseases.
  • Assess the patient’s occupation and daily activities that may contribute to visual strain.

Physical Examination

  • Perform a comprehensive eye examination, including visual acuity testing, to determine the extent of visual impairment.
  • Evaluate the alignment of the eyes to identify any signs of strabismus.
  • Examine the external structures of the eye, such as the eyelids and conjunctiva, for any abnormalities.
  • Assess the intraocular pressure to rule out glaucoma.

Laboratory Tests

  • No specific laboratory tests are required for the diagnosis of glasses symptom/complaint.

Diagnostic Imaging

  • No diagnostic imaging is necessary for the diagnosis of glasses symptom/complaint.

Other Tests

  • Refraction test: This test measures the refractive error of the eye and helps determine the appropriate prescription for glasses.
  • Visual field test: This test assesses the patient’s peripheral vision and can help detect any abnormalities.
  • Slit-lamp examination: This examination allows for a detailed examination of the structures of the eye, including the cornea, lens, and iris.

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Schedule a follow-up appointment to assess the effectiveness of the prescribed glasses and make any necessary adjustments.
  • Educate the patient about the importance of wearing glasses as prescribed and maintaining regular eye examinations.
  • Provide information on proper eye care, including the use of protective eyewear and the importance of taking breaks during prolonged visual tasks.
