70% of parents don’t know the six reasons for children’s myopia!

Abstract: research shows that increasing outdoor activity time has a clear protective effect on the occurrence and development of juvenile myopia. Therefore, parents must take their children outdoors. The more outdoor activities, the less likely it is to develop myopia. For children who want to prevent myopia, outdoor activities should be at least 2 hours a day, and 3 hours is better.

Why are children easy to myopia? Most parents blame electronic products for their children’s myopia. Often watching TV, mobile phone or computer is indeed one of the culprits affecting children’s vision, but it should be noted that these are the reasons for children’s myopia!

1. Lack of sufficient outdoor exercise time

research shows that increasing outdoor activity time has a clear protective effect on the occurrence and development of juvenile myopia. Therefore, parents must take their children outdoors. The more outdoor activities, the less likely it is to develop myopia. For children who want to prevent myopia, outdoor activities should be at least 2 hours a day, and 3 hours is better.

2. Eye environment

read in places where the light is too bright, too dark, glare and reflective. If the light is too strong, it will cause strong reflection, stimulate the eyes, make the eyes uncomfortable and make it difficult to see the font; If the light is too weak, the written lighting is insufficient, and the eyes cannot clearly see the font, the head will move forward and get close to the book. Both of the above conditions will lead to eye fatigue, excessive adjustment or spasm and form myopia.

3. Incorrect eye posture

children have poor self-control and do not pay attention to correct reading and writing posture. If you often read and write too close, the adjustment of your eyes will be extremely tense, which can form myopia.

4. Children with insufficient sleep

are prone to myopia. In children’s rapid growth and development period, especially when they are 7-9 years old and 12-14 years old, if they sleep less, they will cause myopia in some children.

5. Children with one or both parents with high myopia have a higher risk of myopia than ordinary children. Experts say that genetic factors play an important role in the occurrence and development of myopia. If both husband and wife are highly myopic, the probability of children’s myopia is more than 80%.

6. There is no refractive development file.

begin to do a comprehensive optometry every year at the age of 3 ~ 6 and establish refractive development files. After the child is 3 years old, parents should take the child to a professional eye hospital for a comprehensive optometry examination 1 ~ 2 times a year, including diopter, eye axis length and corneal radian, to see whether the child belongs to the high-risk myopia group, and reasonably intervene the occurrence and development of myopia through years of testing.
