be vigilant! The fourth and fifth grades of primary school are the peak of children’s myopia

Abstract: in modern life, children are used to watching mobile phones and TV. They have long-term close contact with electronic products, and outdoor activities are reduced. This is the main reason for the high incidence of myopia in children., – 01 – current situation: the fourth and fifth grades of primary school are the peak of children’s myopia. According to statistics, most of the “post-80s” generation wear glasses due to myopia after primary school graduation, while the peak of “post-90s” wear glasses appears when they enter primary school. Nowadays, the incidence of myopia in children is mostly after school age, and the peak is in the fourth and fifth grades of primary school, that is, about 11 and 12 years old., – 02 – why is there such a high incidence of myopia in children?, There are many factors in the pathogenesis of children’s myopia, which can be divided into congenital and acquired factors. The congenital factors leading to children’s myopia are mainly reflected in the high myopia of both parents. According to authoritative research, both parents are highly myopic, that is, ametropia with myopia greater than 600 degrees, and the probability of children suffering from myopia is as high as 90%. If only one parent suffers from high myopia, there is no data to show that their children are more likely to suffer from myopia, which is mainly caused by acquired factors., There are many kinds of acquired factors, which can be summarized into no more than two main reasons: first, too much close eye activity, and second, less outdoor activities., In modern life, children are used to watching mobile phones and TV. They have long-term close contact with electronic products, and outdoor activities are reduced. This is the main reason for the high incidence of myopia in children., Vigilance: learning piano is more likely to be myopic. In addition, learning some interests and specialties can also easily lead to children’s myopia. Those who need too much close-up use of their eyes in interest classes, learning piano, painting, etc. will be more likely to lead to children’s myopia.,

– 01 – current situation: the fourth and fifth grades of primary school are the peak of children’s myopia.

and

according to statistics, “post-80s” generation mostly wear glasses due to myopia after primary school graduation, while the peak of “post-90s” glasses appears when they enter primary school. Nowadays, the incidence of myopia in children is mostly after school age, and the peak is in the fourth and fifth grades of primary school, that is, about 11 and 12 years old.

– 02 – why is there such a high incidence of myopia in children? The incidence of myopia in children with

and

has many factors, including congenital and acquired factors. The congenital factors leading to children’s myopia are mainly reflected in the high myopia of both parents. According to authoritative research, both parents are highly myopic, that is, ametropia with myopia greater than 600 degrees, and the probability of children suffering from myopia is as high as 90%. If only one parent suffers from high myopia, there is no data to show that their children are more likely to suffer from myopia, which is mainly caused by acquired factors.

and

refer to a variety of acquired factors, which can be summarized as no more than two main reasons: first, too much eye use at close range, and second, less outdoor activities.

and

in modern life, children are used to watching mobile phones and TV. They are in close contact with electronic products for a long time, and outdoor activities are reduced, which is the main reason for the high incidence of myopia in children.

vigilance: learning piano is more likely to be myopia

. In addition, learning some interests and specialties can also easily lead to myopia in children. Those who need too much close-up use of their eyes in interest classes, learning piano, painting, etc. will more easily lead to children’s myopia.

and

take learning the piano as an example. When playing the piano, children need to focus their attention and stare at the score. In addition, if they practice the piano for too long, their visual nerves are easy to be tired, resulting in eye fatigue. This kind of long-time close eye activity will affect their eyesight. Therefore, long-term piano practice is easy to cause myopia in children.

if you want your child not to suffer from myopia, parents can choose other interest classes with less close-up eyes for them to study. If you want to insist on practicing the piano, let children develop good eye habits. During playing the piano, it’s best to let their eyes rest every 30-45 minutes and overlook for 5 minutes.

early prevention: after entering the park, do an eye physical examination

in the face of such a high incidence of children’s myopia, how to prevent it? Parents had better do an eye physical examination when their children are in kindergarten. They can find out the visual problems such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism as soon as possible and find a doctor to deal with them in time.

in addition, in daily life, we should prevent myopia from reducing the time of close eye use and increasing the time of outdoor activities. Parents should try to reduce the time for their children to use electronic products, no more than 15 minutes each time, and teach their children to keep a distance of more than 30 cm from the electronic screen. More importantly, they should try to ensure that their children are outdoors for three hours every day.
