Abstract: whether myopia patients are treated or wear glasses, whether glasses are often worn or taken off, and how much they wear, should be carefully checked by ophthalmologists and determined in combination with the specific situation of each patient.
asked: should glasses be worn often?
A: it depends on the specific degree
when a child is confirmed as myopia, the most common question asked by parents is, is it better to wear glasses or not? Will myopia get deeper and deeper after wearing glasses?
ophthalmologists point out that this can not be generalized. At present, the mainstream view in the industry is that, For diopters below 2.50 (i.e. 250 degree myopia) mild myopia glasses should be mainly used far away and can be taken off when reading and writing. Patients with medium and high myopia should wear them often, but they need to reduce a certain degree as appropriate, which can not only improve vision, but also promote the strengthening of adjustment and convergence function and prevent the occurrence of exotropia. At the same time, the reasons for the deepening of myopia are very complex, which are related to Congenital heredity, acquired environment Their own factors are related, but not directly related to glasses.
generally speaking, whether myopia patients are treated or wear glasses, whether glasses are often worn or taken off, and how many degrees they wear should be carefully checked by ophthalmologists and determined in combination with the specific situation of each patient. Ophthalmologists suggest that teenagers should check their eyes every six months.
ask: is the myopia therapeutic instrument reliable?
A: most of them have no definite curative effect.
have many means to treat myopia, and there are many misunderstandings. For example, some parents abuse drugs for treatment, or are eager to find various therapeutic devices for their children. Many myopia therapeutic instruments on the market have the problems of exaggerated curative effect and false publicity. Most therapeutic instruments have no definite curative effect, only auxiliary function.
for minors, myopia cannot be treated by laser surgery. Corneal plastic lens is another popular treatment method in recent years. It is worn during sleep at night and can be removed during the day to have normal naked eye vision, avoiding the inconvenience and distress of wearing glasses. It is necessary to go to a regular and qualified eye hospital or optometry Center for fitting. No matter which treatment method is selected, the main premise is that the eyes must be healthy. If high myopia has caused lesions, it will be difficult to perform surgery in the future.
