Is it necessary to take Coats’ disease (retinal capillary dilatation) lutein?
Q: A woman in her late 20s. I know to some extent what kind of bottle Coats is. My diagnosis was changed at the tertiary hospital due to macular degeneration. Macular degeneration has obtained some information on management, but there is no such thing as coats disease. This disease is said to be congenital, so my eating habits and lifestyle are less affected?
I have to read books and computers for about 15 hours a day. Is that okay? Is taking supplements like lutein a must?
A: Coats disease (retinal capillary dilatation) is often congenital. Eating habits or lifestyle habits (computer, book) do not have a significant impact on the disease. You can look at computers, books, etc. within the limits allowed by eye conditions and fatigue.
However, regardless of Coats disease, these short-range tasks are not good for eye health, so it is recommended to take a break from time to time.
Also, nutritional supplements such as lutein are the same. Regardless of the disease, it helps improve overall eye fatigue and nutritional status.
It’s okay to take it for eye health, not for treatment purposes. Taking a lot of eye nutritional supplements does not cure Coats’ disease.
We recommend that you visit a hospital diagnosed with Coats’ disease or a hospital with a retinal specialist for regular treatment and treatment.
