hormone replacement therapy maintains visual acuity

hormone replacement therapy maintains visual acuityIt is known that the conduct of hormone replacement therapy immediately after the onset of menopause can have soudo - and neuroprotective effects. German researchers Enderlein j.M. (Wenderlein J. M.), Hensinger E. (Hensinger E.) suggested that this effect may have a positive impact in the case of visual impairment in older women. The results of their study, published in the pages of Klin. Monatsbl. Augenheilkd., 2003, indicate that among women older than 70 years suffering from glaucoma or cataracts, almost none were receiving hormone replacement therapy. While 7 out of 10 women who moved abroad menopause for more than 10 years ago and has quite a sharp vision (higher than 0.7), received hormone replacement therapy for 5 years. In addition, in the group of healthy women older than 60 years who did not receive hormone replacement therapy, 19% had a pressure of the fundus of the order of 19 units, and among women who took it for more than 5 years, this phenomenon was observed only at 7%. Thus, conclude the authors, hormone replacement therapy, when holding it in for 5 years in women older than 60 years, can lead to the preservation of visual acuity and normalize the pressure of the fundus.
