Bit by bit about myopia

Abstract: many studies have confirmed the role of genes in the occurrence of myopia. For example, children whose parents are myopic are four times more likely to develop myopia than children whose parents are not myopic; If both parents are highly myopic, the child will be basically myopic., Research shows that there are 1.6 billion myopia patients in the world by 2004, and the number of myopia may increase to 2.5 billion by 2020. The prevalence of myopia in Southeast Asia is as high as 80%, and the situation in China may be more serious., What’s more worrying is that children become nearsighted more and more early, so they can easily develop into high myopia. The consequence is that high myopia itself may cause blindness, and the probability of passing it on to the next generation will be greatly increased., Why does myopia seem to suddenly get out of control?, Many studies have confirmed the role of genes in the occurrence of myopia. For example, children whose parents are myopic are four times more likely to develop myopia than children whose parents are not myopic; If both parents are highly myopic, the child will be basically myopic., The worse news is that if parents are not myopic, it does not mean that children will not be myopic. Because environmental factors still play a great role. The improvement of education level, urbanization and the increase of close work will increase the possibility of myopia. This may also be why there are so many myopic people now, which has a great relationship with the modern lifestyle., So can’t myopia really be cured?, Judging from the current situation, it is indeed. If it is confirmed to be true myopia through mydriatic optometry, there is basically no way to reverse myopia.

research shows that there are 1.6 billion myopia patients in the world by 2004, and the number of myopia may increase to 2.5 billion by 2020. The prevalence of myopia in Southeast Asia is as high as 80%, and the situation in China may be more serious.

and

what’s more worrying is that children are becoming nearsighted more and more early, which is easy to develop into high myopia. The consequence is that high myopia itself may cause blindness, and the probability of inheritance to the next generation will be greatly increased.

why does myopia seem to suddenly get out of control?

many studies have confirmed the role of genes in the occurrence of myopia. For example, children with parents’ myopia are four times more likely to develop myopia than children without parents’ myopia; If both parents are highly myopic, the child will be basically myopic.

the worse news is that if parents are not myopic, it does not mean that children will not be myopic. Because environmental factors still play a great role. The improvement of education level, urbanization and the increase of close work will increase the possibility of myopia. This may also be why there are so many myopic people now, which has a great relationship with the modern lifestyle.

is myopia really not cured?

from the current situation, it is indeed. If it is confirmed to be true myopia through mydriatic optometry, there is basically no way to reverse myopia. What can be done is to try to control the progress of myopia and slow down the development speed.

and

children with myopia can only correct their eyesight through glasses, including frame glasses and contact lenses. If they really don’t want to wear glasses, they can wear corneal shaping glasses at night to obtain good naked eyesight during the day, so that they don’t need to wear glasses during the day. When the myopia of adults is stable, they can also take off the mirror by refractive surgery.

is there any way to control the development of myopia?

and

in fact, the best way is to do a good job in prevention and try not to make children myopia. The most important method of

and

is actually very simple, that is, to increase children’s outdoor time. This is an internationally recognized point. Research shows that staying outdoors for 2 hours a day or 10 hours a week can have a better effect on preventing myopia, and the time can be accumulated. It’s actually easy to operate. For example, during recess activities, children can stay outside the classroom, and parents can take their children outdoors on weekends.

and

are to exercise children’s eye adjustment ability. For example, encourage children to participate in table tennis and other sports. When playing table tennis, children’s eyes keep looking close and far, and their adjustment ability is exercised during sports.

and

can also take children to fly kites, climb mountains, etc. the principle is to let the eyes look at the distance more; Play less electronics and look closer.

although science is developing, there is still a long way to go before myopia is cured. It is true to take good care of your eyes.
