A few things about myopia!

Abstract: the prominent eyes are not caused by long-term wearing glasses, but by high myopia. Many people believe in the saying that “wearing glasses for a long time will lead to sunken eyes, prominent eyes and very ugly”.

in fact, people have a lot of misunderstandings about wearing glasses. Xiaobian lists a few here and summarizes the words of ophthalmologists to restore the truth for everyone. Hong Kong Zhen, don’t love me too much.

and

agree that “it is better for children to be short-sighted without glasses”. But in fact, a pair of appropriate glasses can be said to be the “protector” of the eyes.

generally speaking, pseudomyopia does not need to wear glasses. Pay attention to the correct use of eyes, and the vision will recover automatically. But most young people today can’t. Therefore, timely and scientific optometry and glasses can enable children to obtain clear and comfortable visual quality. Compared with the visual state of fuzzy fatigue without glasses, wearing glasses is more helpful to slow down the development of children’s myopia. The formation of

and

myopia has genetic factors and a large number of acquired environmental factors. For example, excessive eye use, lying reading, watching mobile phones, watching TV, close eye use, etc. Without good eye habits, even without glasses, myopia will eventually deepen.

and

have prominent eyes. In fact, it is not because of wearing glasses for a long time, but because of high myopia. Many people believe in the saying that “wearing glasses for a long time will lead to sunken eyes, prominent eyes and very ugly”. But experts said: in fact, wearing glasses for a long time will not lead to eye protrusion. From another angle, eye protrusion is not due to wearing glasses for a long time, but due to high myopia.

and

eyeballs are deformed because the optic axis is lengthened and the visual breadth is prominent after the myopia degree is deepened. This is a problem of the eye itself and has nothing to do with wearing glasses. If the eye is compared to an optical instrument, the distance from the outermost cornea receiving light to the innermost retina receiving light can be regarded as a central axis of the optical system, that is, the eye axis. The eye axis of normal people is about 24mm. Generally speaking, the degree of myopia increases by 300 degrees for every 1mm increase in the ocular axis.

in fact, wearing glasses itself will not lead to eye deformation. The real reason for the deformation is that myopia deepens and the eye axis becomes longer after improper eye protection. If children can’t see the blackboard in class, they must have optometry and glasses. Not wearing glasses will deepen myopia, which is harmful to children. According to clinical research, children with regular mydriatic optometry and wearing appropriate glasses every year have the slowest development rate of myopia compared with children who never wear glasses, or have irregular optometry and inappropriate degree of glasses.
