Any interference has its own risks. Here's today's news:

Nine patients of the Moscow Institute of Eye Diseases went blind after contacting doctors

The reason could be a spoiled medicine.

One of the largest state-owned medical centers - the Helmholtz Institute of Eye Diseases. As indicated on the clinic's website, it "largely determined the formation and development of domestic ophthalmology." With an unexpected outcome, the meeting with Russian ophthalmology ended for nine patients of the institute, writes Life. Among the victims is a 61-year-old resident of Tver. After the injection of the Avastin drug, he felt a burning sensation and severe pain in his eyes. As a result, one eye completely lost sight. Patients' pupils, according to doctors, react to light. Now doctors are trying to find out the cause of mass blindness.

The drug "Avastin" was developed as an antineoplastic agent, but the drug was also used in ophthalmology - it helps with retinal detachment and costs five times cheaper than analogues - 10 thousand rubles per injection instead of fifty. According to one of the versions, the loss of vision could occur due to the fact that an infection got into the drug. Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova has already instructed to clarify the circumstances of the incident in the capital's clinic. The inspection is carried out by Roszdravnadzor.

The ICR also took an interest in the incident. Investigators will interview the staff of the institute, and also order a chemical analysis of the drug.

Unfortunately, the ophthalmologist does not treat eyesight and is in no way insured against its fall, and practically cannot correct it in any way (nevertheless, not everyone approves of laser restoration). Perhaps even one of them went to ophthalmologists because they were interested in their own disease. As for the question of "glasses or lenses", everyone here just has their own preferences and habits
