Attention, parents! Children under 16 should not wear myopia glasses!

Abstract: glasses can only help children see clearly through the optical principle, and have no function of treating myopia. Once children wear glasses, they will have a sense of dependence on it, “use in and waste out”, and the adjustment function of the eyes will gradually lose. As a result, their eyesight will decline sharply and the degree will be deeper and deeper.

children are short-sighted. The first reaction of parents is to match their children with glasses. But after a period of time, it is often found that children’s myopia is not controlled, but deepened, and they have to wear more deep glasses. Why is the degree deepening after wearing glasses? What will you do in the future? Can children only wear glasses all their life? Authoritative ophthalmologists point out that children aged 5-15 who are in the stage of physical growth and development should not wear glasses prematurely for myopia.

“in March this year, I found that children always squint at things. When I went to the hospital for examination, I had 150 degrees of myopia. I hurried to match Honghong, who was only in grade two, with glasses.” These days, Honghong’s parents took their children to check their eyesight again and found that the myopia of 150 degrees has now become 250 degrees. The degree of myopia was not controlled, but deepened.

parents wonder: “is the glasses not good, or is it invalid to wear glasses?” The answer given by

and

experts is that glasses can only help children see clearly through the optical principle, and have no function of treating myopia. Once children wear glasses, they will have a sense of dependence on it, “use in and waste out”, and the adjustment function of the eyes will gradually lose. As a result, their eyesight will decline sharply and the degree will be deeper and deeper. On the day of

and

national “eye love day, relevant experts introduced that due to the heavy burden of schoolwork and less outdoor activities, the number of students with myopia in China is increasing. More than 50% of junior middle school students suffer from myopia, which is caused by

and

. In addition to a few genetic factors, most of them are caused by students’ heavy schoolwork and too long time of close eye use; Modern teenagers sit more indoors and have less outdoor activities. They usually focus on reading and writing. They also focus on watching TV and playing computer games at rest. This causes adaptive changes in the function and structure of the eye, and the anterior posterior diameter of the eye gradually becomes longer, resulting in myopia.

and

experts say that children with myopia should not wear glasses too early. Glasses can solve the problem that children can’t see clearly at present, but the root cause of myopia is ciliary muscle spasm. Because children generally develop and mature at the age of 18, ciliary muscle spasm will continue to deteriorate after glasses are equipped, resulting in children’s glasses again and again, but the degree continues to deepen, Until high myopia.

5-15 years old is the development period of children and the “susceptibility period” of myopia. The eye tissue that has not been fully developed has great plasticity, and children will suffer from myopia if they don’t pay attention. On the contrary, the child’s vision can be restored by improving the eye tissue before the end of the development period. For children aged 5-15 who are in the stage of physical growth and development, the shorter the time of myopia, the younger the age, the shallower the degree and the earlier the improvement, the higher the probability of vision recovery and prevention of decline.

therefore, experts suggest that children under the age of 16 should not match glasses too early. In particular, children with short-term myopia, young age and diopter below 300 degrees should improve their eyesight through scientific adjustment methods.

experts remind parents to pay attention to the signs of myopia that children are prone to:

1 Recent physical examination found that the child’s visual acuity was between 0.6-0.8 or the degree continued to deepen;

  2. Often rub your eyes, increase the frequency of blinking, squint and look at things;

  3. I like to sit forward when watching TV;

  4. Dry and sour eyes, fear of light, tears and other visual fatigue symptoms;

  5. Visual fatigue leads to inattention and decreased academic performance.

and

experts warn: be alert to the omen of myopia and take measures as soon as possible. In real life, many parents do not pay enough attention to the problem of myopia aura, do not adjust their children’s eyes in time, miss the best time to improve their eyesight, and finally cause myopia.
