Are Eye Problems Linked To Mirena IUD?
The Mirena IUD has been under heavy scrutiny recently for the potential serious side-effects believed to be a result of the implant.
Thousands of women are currently seeking legal counsel due to the implant causing dangerous problems such as internal bleeding and perforation of the uterus. Recently, however, new findings have suggested a link between Mirena and a series of different eye problems which can lead to loss of vision, among other things.
What Conditions Affect Eye Sight?
Papilledema, a condition marked by swelling of the optic disc, is caused by increased pressure in the head. If this condition worsens, it can lead to temporary blind spots and other forms of vision loss.
A common belief among the medical community is that the hormone released by the Mirena device, called levonorgestrel, is responsible for these vision problems.
Another condition affecting eye sight in women is pseudotumor cerebri (PTC), or idiopathic intracranial hypertension. PTC can occur when pressure inside the head builds for no obvious reasoning.
Pseudotumor cerebri literally means “false brain tumor” hence the relation which other tumors. It is likely due to high pressure caused by the poor absorption of cerebrospinal fluid in the space surrounding the brain.
What Are The Symptoms Of PTC?
The symptoms of PTC are very similar to those of a brain tumor, however no brain tumor is actually present.
People may experience:
- Visual: blurred vision, double vision, or partial loss of vision
- Gastrointestinal: nausea or vomiting
- Also common: headache, dizziness, or ringing in the ears
As the condition worsens, swelling of the optic nerve can cause some vision loss. There are some medications that can effectively treat PTC, but in some rare cases, surgery is required to relieve the pressure and subsequently correct the vision loss.
