Although eye exercises have nothing to do with myopia, they are not good for nothing

Abstract: “there is no relationship between eye exercises and myopia. The two are different.” In fact, the causes of students’ myopia are very complex. At present, the main factors are genetic factors and acquired factors. In fact, some studies have found that heredity plays about 60% of the role in the formation of myopia, and the rest includes the acquired environmental effects such as watching TV, watching computer or doing homework for a long time, lying reading, too strong or too weak lighting.

eye exercises must be effective in alleviating visual fatigue, just like young white-collar workers who treat shoulder and neck pain through massage. It is unlikely that the disease can be cured, but at least it can alleviate the symptoms.

and

eye exercises have maimed Chinese teenagers for 49 years. Massaging acupoints has no effect. Massaging with dirty hands has led to red eye disease and eye infection… Recently, the useless theory of eye exercises has become fierce on the Internet. A “task” that several generations are forced to complete every day during their student years has been completely denied. Is this the spirit of rational doubt, Or emotional venting?

1. Eye exercises have nothing to do with myopia.

“only China does eye exercises and massages useless acupoints in the world. In the past 49 years, the myopia rate of Chinese teenagers has risen to the second in the world, reaching 360 million people. Doing eye exercises can not improve their eyesight. Many students massage their eyes with dirty hands, resulting in red eye disease and eye infection.” Recently, a microblog netizen’s blog article on “eye exercises have no scientific basis” attracted tens of thousands of netizens to forward, “is eye exercises useful” immediately became a hot topic.

some netizens said, “in my senior year, I did eye exercises under the command of the Deputy monitor every day, and my eyesight decreased every day. I have always suspected this”; Some netizens said, “before, I was infected with my eyes because I answered questions on the blackboard and then didn’t wash my hands and forced to do eye exercises.”.

although the voice of criticizing eye exercises on the Internet seems to have the upper hand, some people “avenge” eye exercises. “For so many years, I have insisted on doing eye exercises seriously from primary school to high school. Until now, my eyesight has remained good. With the continuous rise of myopia around me, many students have asked me how to keep my eyes so good. I think this is the credit of my serious eye exercises. As long as I do it carefully, it really has the effect of protecting my eyesight!”

and

in the view of supporters, no matter whether eye exercises can prevent myopia and relax people, it is a fact that the eyes feel less sour and swollen after all.

however, experts believe that after doing eye exercises, myopia and netizens who insist on doing eye exercises and maintain good eyesight are not enough to explain the relationship between eye exercises and the prevention of myopia.

“eye exercises have nothing to do with myopia. The two are different.” In fact, the causes of students’ myopia are very complex. At present, the main factors are genetic factors and acquired factors. In fact, some studies have found that heredity plays about 60% of the role in the formation of myopia, and the rest includes the acquired environmental effects such as watching TV, watching computer or doing homework for a long time, lying reading, too strong or too weak lighting. Only there is no “doing eye exercises”.

2. Eye exercises are not good for nothing

however, this does not mean that eye exercises are good for nothing.

and

eye exercises were originally a massage therapy synthesized by Liu Shiming of the physical education teaching and research group of the Department of medicine of Peking University according to the massage and meridian theory of traditional Chinese medicine and combined with medical sports. Through the massage of eye acupoints, the blood circulation around the eyes was improved, the blood in the eyes was unobstructed and the muscle tension was eliminated.

and

in 2008, a new version of eye exercises came out, increasing from four to six. The massage parts include zanzhu point, Jingming point, Sibai point, temple, Fengchi point and earlobe. Zanzhu acupoint at the upper orbital angle under the left and right eyebrows of

and

, as well as Jingming acupoint above the inner eye corner and the depression at the edge of the orbital bone, are very important Shu acupoints on the bladder meridian in the twelve meridians of the human body. The bladder meridian is closely related to the five Zang and six Fu organs. These acupoints on the bladder meridian also regulate the five Zang and six Fu organs. Zanzhu acupoint and Jingming acupoint are located around the eyes, According to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, local diseases can be treated. Massaging zanzhu point and Jingming point can promote the circulation of blood and blood in the eyes, alleviate the unclear vision, red eye swelling and pain, etc.

and Sibai point is the point of stomach meridian. Massage can improve eye function. Although the temple is an acupoint outside the meridians of the human body, it is also good for refreshing and refreshing the brain.

Fengchi point is one of the newly added points in the new version, which is parallel to the earlobe on both sides of the big muscle behind the forehead. Yang Wei said that Fengchi point is a very important point on the head. Almost all head and facial diseases can dredge the meridians by massaging this point. Also added are earlobes. “The root of the ear can be said to be a body point of local microcirculation. There are many acupoints on it. The eye point is in the middle of the earlobe. Massaging the earlobe can naturally alleviate the discomfort of the eyes.”

“this is like athletes relaxing muscles by massage, or young white-collar workers treating shoulder and neck pain by massage. The disease may not be cured, but at least it can alleviate the symptoms and make the body more comfortable.” Therefore, eye exercises must be effective in alleviating visual fatigue.

III. The effect of eye exercises depends on whether the action is accurate or not.

if it can effectively alleviate visual fatigue, doing eye exercises can also indirectly prevent myopia to a certain extent, but why can’t it reflect its expected effect in the student group.

“at school, when there was a student union inspection, everyone did it obediently. As soon as the inspection left, almost no one did it. What should we do?” “You can take a nap and take a nap during the exercise time. The acupoints are floating clouds, and making up sleep is the king”… These netizens’ comments may also explain to some extent why the effect of eye health exercises is not good. The effect of

and

eye exercises depends on whether the action is accurate, in place and lasting. If the children are just perfunctory, or the strength is not enough, they do not eliminate the feeling of acid swelling after rubbing, and do not feel relaxed, it may not play any role.

“at present, school eye exercises are only forTo complete a mandatory task, and the effective way is to get up in the morning and go to bed at night. As long as you feel tired during the day, you can use the rest time to do eye exercises to relax. ” A netizen of

and

teased: Fortunately, when I was a child, I was naughty and didn’t do eye exercises. All good students were doing them obediently. Later, they all wore glasses, but I didn’t. In fact, this also reveals one of the real reasons for the high rate of myopia among Chinese children. “Eye exercises are no match for children’s learning pressure.”

therefore, to really prevent myopia, the first thing is to prevent excessive use of eyes, reading and learning. Of course, do not watch TV and computer for more than half an hour, and increase outdoor sports. Secondly, pay attention to the way of using eyes. Avoid reading in direct sunlight or in the dark. Don’t lie down, lie down, walk around or read when driving; At the same time, eat more foods rich in vitamin A, such as sheep’s liver, pig’s liver, eggs, milk, carrots, vegetables, etc.
