Avoid children’s myopia. Are you qualified as a parent?

Abstract: mydriatic optometry is to drop the special eyedrops for ciliary muscle paralysis into the eyes to make the ciliary muscles of the eyes completely paralyzed and reach the most relaxed state, and then conduct optometry without any damage to the eyes. Misunderstanding 1 of

and

mydriasis optometry is one of the important optometry methods to check the refractive state of children’s eyes, but most parents worry about side effects. But is it really the case?

and

mydriatic optometry is to drop the special eyedrops for ciliary muscle paralysis into the eyes to completely paralyze the ciliary muscles of the eyes and achieve the most relaxed state, and then perform optometry without any damage to the eyes.

if there is no mydriasis, children before the age of 6 have very strong eye adjustment ability, that is, their vision will be “fake” during the examination, and they can’t find hidden dangers. In particular, it is very difficult to judge hyperopia, strabismus and amblyopia. Once missed, children will miss the key correction period before the age of 6. Misunderstanding 3 of

: astigmatism doesn’t matter. There is no need to correct

and

. Parents often hear that astigmatism doesn’t matter and doesn’t need to be corrected. In fact, this should be treated differently.

astigmatism can be divided into light, medium and high. About 80% of them are mild astigmatism, about 15% are moderate astigmatism and about 5% are high astigmatism. If astigmatism is mild and asymptomatic, it does not need to be corrected, but if there are symptoms such as visual fatigue, squinting and torticollis, it should be corrected accurately. Medium and high astigmatism usually must be corrected.

myth 4: glasses can’t be taken off when they are worn.

many parents don’t want to match glasses for their children’s myopia because they are worried that their children can’t take them off once they are worn. So they seek methods such as massage, traditional Chinese medicine acupuncture, eye exercises and so on. In fact, these methods can not reverse or control the occurrence and development of children’s myopia.

because there are genetic factors and a large number of acquired environmental factors in the occurrence and development of myopia, the myopia of teenagers and children will still show a deepening trend after wearing glasses, which is not the fault of wearing glasses.

and most teenagers and children get pseudomyopia. As long as they are controlled and treated properly, it is not irreversible, which requires more scientific treatment methods and persistent treatment methods. Misunderstanding 5 of

and

: you can see clearly without changing

and

. The refractive state of human eyes will change dynamically with different age states. Therefore, it is necessary to check regularly. For example, teenagers can check for half a year. In addition, the lens will affect the visual quality due to aging and surface coating wear. The mirror frame will also be deformed, resulting in correction deviation. Therefore, we should pay attention to regular optometry and glasses. Misunderstanding 6 of

and

: myopia can be operated without care.

and

juvenile myopia is irreversible. If it is not treated, it will lead to high myopia and bring many eye complications. Even if myopia is corrected by laser in adulthood, it will be very difficult. Therefore, myopia should be actively treated and develop good eye habits. Otherwise, it will be inherited and make the next generation more myopic. Misunderstanding 7 of

and

: the more fashionable and expensive glasses, the better.

and

a good pair of glasses lies not in the high price, but in whether it is suitable for you. For some exaggerated and fashionable large frame glasses, due to the heavy frame, large and heavy lens diameter, incorrect optical center shift of the lens, unstable wearing position, etc., it is easy to lead to inaccurate optical correction, prism effect and increase of aberration, resulting in visual fatigue and decline of visual quality. In particular, some young people with small face shape, small pupil distance and deep degree are not recommended to choose large frame optical glasses. Misunderstanding 8 of

: wearing glasses will “protrude” and

and

many people think that wearing glasses for myopia will cause eye deformation and protrusion, resulting in some people with high myopia who are very taboo to wear glasses with accurate height.

and

are actually caused by the deepening of myopia and the growth of eye axis, which leads to the deformation and prominence of some people’s eyes, rather than wearing glasses. The growth of myopia is due to the prominent deformation of the eyes, while inappropriate glasses with significantly low degrees are just more prone to visual fatigue, which may promote the deepening of myopia.

and

remind parents to avoid children’s myopia. Prevention is greater than treatment. Good eye habits and professional repair, relief and health care methods can better alleviate visual fatigue and prevent the deepening of myopia.
