Can computer optometry replace medical optometry

Abstract: for patients with myopia, it is very important to receive professional medical optometry. According to the reporter, many optical shops use computer optometry, and then determine the final degree through the patient’s audition. The patient’s subjective feeling is dominant, so the degree is easily affected by the patient’s mood and state at that time., Myopia is the most common eye disease among teenagers. The survey shows that the incidence of myopia in China is 33%, and the number of myopia in China has reached nearly 400 million, which has reached 1.5 times the world average level. The incidence rate of myopia is 50% to 60%. China is one of the countries with the highest incidence rate of myopia in the world. With the summer vacation approaching, many students hope to use their leisure time to correct their eyesight. But now there are a variety of medical advertisements for correcting eyesight, whether to match glasses or surgery, and contact lenses, which often makes many parents and students at a loss. In order to protect the eyes, the most precise organ of the human body, experts suggest to clarify some common sense first, so as not to fall into the misunderstanding of myopia correction., Myth 1: computer optometry can replace medical optometry. Some students know that they are short-sighted during the physical examination, so they go to the glasses store near the school and get a pair of glasses. However, since they put them on, they feel orbital pain and headache. The staff of the glasses store told them that this is a normal reaction. It would be good if they wear them for a few days. But two weeks later, the symptoms not only did not reduce, but also became more and more serious. Finally, I had to go to the ophthalmology department. According to the doctor’s examination, this is due to the improper degree of glasses and pupil distance., For myopia patients, wearing frame glasses is the most common solution. So where should glasses be matched scientifically? What is the difference between optometry in hospitals and optical shops? Hu Lizhong, President of Beijing Yingzhi ophthalmic hospital, said that it is very important for myopia patients to receive professional medical optometry. According to the reporter, many optical shops use computer optometry, and then determine the final degree through the patient’s audition. The patient’s subjective feeling is dominant. In this way, the degree is easily affected by the patient’s mood and state at that time. In addition, the product quality of some optical shops is uneven, and many patients will have inappropriate degrees., Myth 2: everyone can do excimer laser myopia surgery. As an excimer surgery expert, President Hu Lizhong said that although laser myopia surgery is very mature, not everyone can do it. For example, minors and patients with unstable myopia are not suitable for myopia surgery; Teenagers under the age of 18 are prone to myopia regression after surgery due to unshaped eyeball development. In addition, the eyeball is still changing. Early surgical intervention may bring adverse effects. Myopia surgery should not be carried out too quickly., Patients with too thin corneal thickness and patients with myopia exceeding – 15.00d may cause complications because they can’t reserve a safe corneal thickness; In addition, patients with severe dry eye and active eye disease are not suitable for myopia surgery.,

After the doctor’s examination, this is due to the improper degree of glasses and pupil distance.

for myopia patients, wearing frame glasses is the most common solution at present. So where should glasses be matched scientifically?

misunderstanding 3: the preoperative examination of myopia surgery is the same everywhere.

a patient with high myopia wants to do excimer surgery and say goodbye to glasses. The local hospital informed that the operation could be performed immediately. However, the patient came to Beijing on business and had another preoperative examination. The doctor diagnosed his retinaAfter two weeks of laser treatment, the patient successfully underwent excimer myopia correction surgery. Not only was the retina in good condition, but also his vision remained at 1.2. According to the attending doctor, if the preoperative examination is not detailed enough, it can not be found in time, which may cause retinal detachment, visual acuity will be significantly reduced or even blindness. President Hu Lizhong of

and

told reporters that many myopia patients blindly follow the so-called latest surgical methods and the most advanced instruments, or are simply attracted by low prices. In fact, it is most important to choose a formal and professional eye hospital. In addition to surgeons and equipment, professional and comprehensive preoperative examination is the key link to ensure the safety of myopia surgery.

and

myopia patients will have varying degrees of retinal degeneration and other eye diseases due to the changes of eye structure. Although myopia surgery is carried out on the outermost cornea, it can be said that it is “non-interference” with the situation of fundus, it is more important and urgent to find and treat fundus diseases earlier than lens removal. Therefore, as a professional eye hospital, the items of preoperative examination for myopia should be very perfect. It is a “comprehensive physical examination” for the eyes of patients, rather than limited to several items that need to be referred to for myopia surgery.

and

special tips: even patients who have received myopia surgery are not “all right”. They must regularly dilate their pupils and check the fundus of their eyes. If retinopathy is found, they should receive professional treatment as soon as possible.
