Astigmatism, myopia and hyperopia all belong to the scope of ametropia

Abstract: if parents find that their children always squint, tilt their head or tilt their head forward, turn their eyes up and look at the objects in front of them, it is recommended to go to the ophthalmology department of a regular hospital as soon as possible.

astigmatism is mostly congenital. Of course, it is also related to the development of the acquired eyeball. Mild astigmatism can be adjusted and corrected to shorten the distance between the two focal lines, so as to see the object clearly, but it is easy to cause visual fatigue.

severe astigmatism can not be compensated by adjustment, but it is not easy to visual fatigue, but the visual acuity is generally poor. If it is not corrected for a long time, it will lead to amblyopia.

and

babies may not express that their eyesight is impaired, so parents should pay more attention.

if parents find that their children always squint, tilt their heads or tilt their heads forward, turn their eyes up and look at the objects in front of them, they are advised to go to the ophthalmology department of a regular hospital as soon as possible.

children aged 3-4 have been able to cooperate with visual examination, so they should be found in time and treated as soon as possible. The younger the age of myopia training, the better the effect. Generally, the treatment effect is the best before the age of 7. If you miss this sensitive period of visual development, your baby will have low vision for life.

after being told that your baby has astigmatism, you must go to a professional institution for mydriatic optometry to determine the degree of astigmatism. Children’s eyes have strong accommodation. If the pupils are not dilated during optometry, the accommodation of ciliary muscle can make the lens convex and enhance the refractive power. The components of accommodative myopia, i.e. pseudomyopia, cannot be removed, which will affect the accuracy of the results.
