Abstract: some newborn babies have watery eyes and large eyes, and their parents are particularly proud. But if you look carefully, such large eyes are not particularly divine. Dr. Chen said that at this time, parents should pay attention, because the child is likely to have infant glaucoma.
attention! The myopia tendency and abnormal vision of 0-6-year-old infants have aroused widespread concern among parents. However, ophthalmologists say that premature exposure to electronic products is only part of the reason for children’s premature myopia, The three misunderstandings of parents themselves are the “culprit” of abnormal vision in infants aged 0-6 years.
misunderstanding 1: parents have no problem with their eyesight, and their children must have no problem.
many parents believe that their eyesight is normal, and other people in the family have no ophthalmic diseases, so their children will be fine, even if they are short-sighted: “at least wait until they go to school.” Chen Siping, a doctor at the optometry diagnosis and treatment center of Zhejiang Eye Hospital, has just received a pair of such parents. The child is only 3 years old, but the examination result is: the left eye is normal, and the hyperopia in the right eye has exceeded 600 degrees, which belongs to high hyperopia.
during the examination, Dr. Chen found that because the right eye can’t see clearly, the child usually hardly uses the right eye. It all depends on the normal left eye, so that he often squints to see things. His parents don’t care much and think it’s the child’s bad habit. Finally, grandma felt something was wrong and advised her parents to bring their children to the hospital for detailed examination. After the examination results came out, the father could not believe it. He insisted: “if you are good, the child will have no problem.”
Dr. Chen said that children aged 0-6 have weak language expression ability, and it is difficult to tell their parents that they can’t see and see clearly, They chose “self-reliance”: “children squint, tilt their heads to look at things, or sometimes they clearly want to take something. When they reach out, they don’t reach it, so they take other things. Their parents don’t notice or see it, but they don’t take it seriously.” If your baby has the above situation, Dr. Chen suggests going to the hospital for further examination.
in addition, some newborn babies have watery eyes and large eyes, and their parents are particularly proud. But if you look carefully, such large eyes are not particularly divine. Dr. Chen said that at this time, parents should pay attention to it, because the child is likely to have infant glaucoma. Misunderstanding 2 of
: if the visual acuity test is normal, the child will not have myopia.
after entering the kindergarten, the children will receive a visual acuity test at least once a year. After the test, each parent will receive a piece of paper with the child’s visual acuity written on it. The normal visual acuity of children aged 4-6 should be between 0.5-0.8. However, parents should be reminded that even if your baby’s visual acuity is within this range, it does not mean that the child has no tendency to myopia.
every year, doctors in Zhejiang eye hospital check the eyesight of kindergarten children. Dr. Chen found that some of the children’s visual acuity values were only 0.4 and 0.6. The result was because these children didn’t know how to read the visual acuity chart. Some children’s visual acuity values have reached the standard, but in fact there are low degrees of myopia. For example, the original visual acuity of 0.8 has changed to 1.0 with 25 degrees of myopia or a certain degree of astigmatism, indicating that these children have a tendency to myopia.
according to big data, in recent years, about 10% of preschool children have myopia tendency or marginal myopia. Dr. Chen suggested that in addition to keeping children away from mobile phones and iPad electronic products, parents should strictly control the time children watch TV every day, preferably 20 minutes a day, The reasonable distance between children and TV should be 5 times the diagonal length of TV screen. In addition, try to reduce children’s long and low head games and learning time, such as playing high building blocks and playing chess. Their “lethality” to the eyes is no less than that of electronic products. Misunderstanding 3 of
: if you have myopia tendency, you should wear glasses. What should children do when they have myopia tendency? Dr. Chen said that myopia tendency is not myopia, but easy myopia. At present, they mainly focus on observation and prevention.
“every 3-6 months, parents should bring children to the hospital for examination.” Dr. Chen said that he always adheres to “two less and one more” at home: watch less TV, play less mobile phones and increase outdoor activities. In addition, considering that some children have more interest classes and have a heavy burden on their eyes, Dr. Chen suggested that after class, children should immediately release air to their glasses: “it’s very simple. Look at the distance and look at the green plants.”
