Can you be blind after high myopia when you are young??

Abstract: high myopia has the risk of blindness. In addition to the natural and man-made disasters with the same low probability as normal people, patients with high myopia have a higher risk of retinal detachment, glaucoma, maculopathy, cataract, posterior scleral staphyloma and other diseases. The narrow sense of

refers to blind people who have lost their eyesight to no sense of light; In a broad sense, it refers to the loss of the ability of both eyes to distinguish the surrounding environment. The key is that blindness is irreversible and incurable. Myopia is easy to correct. If you don’t like wearing glasses, you can have surgery.

the answer is: possible!

why does it say that relatives with high myopia may be blind?

1. The world is so big, who can guarantee not to be blind?

even if you have a vision of 2.0, no one can guarantee that he will not be blind in the future! There are so many accidents in the world every day. Who can predict the future?

no one can guarantee that they will not be blind, deaf or dumb in the future!

but: high myopia itself will not cause blindness! Any statement about blindness after high myopia is either ignorance or intimidation!

don’t say that more than 600 degrees of myopia won’t be blind (without other diseases), that is, one or two thousand degrees of ultra-high myopia. No doctor says that they will be blind in the future?

2. High myopia is more likely to get other blinding eye diseases than ordinary people.

High myopia has the risk of blindness. In addition to natural and man-made disasters with the same low probability as normal people, patients with high myopia have a higher risk of retinal detachment, glaucoma, maculopathy, cataract, posterior scleral staphyloma and other diseases.

No.1 retinal detachment

due to scleral expansion and retinal degeneration, the rate of net detachment in patients with high myopia is 7 to 8 times higher than that in normal people!

fortunately, compared with glaucoma and keratoconus, retinal detachment can be saved and can be treated by freezing, laser and laser surgery. Of course, parents should not be careless. If this is found late and not treated in time, it will also lead to permanent blindness.

if it is not congenital abnormal eye development, net off is mainly related to excessive eye use.

and

parents with high myopia should not stay up all night playing with electronic products, Do not exercise violently (including taking a roller coaster), lift less heavy objects, and try not to donate blood (the donation of patients with high myopia will cause insufficient blood supply to the eyeball and may cause net detachment). Net detachment can be basically prevented.

No.2 glaucoma

Studies in different countries have shown that the risk of glaucoma is 2 to 4 times higher in people with myopia than in people without myopia, and most of those with high myopia are open-angle glaucoma. Open angle glaucoma is a disease of irreversible damage to optic nerve and visual field caused by increasing intraocular pressure, which makes patients from visual field defect to blindness. The most terrible thing about

and

is that patients with open-angle glaucoma usually have no symptoms in the early stage and their eyes are not painful or itchy. Many people find it only during routine physical examination, which is already in the middle and late stage. They even cover one eye one day and find that the other eye is blind, and the treatment effect of late glaucoma is poor.

  NO3. The parents of cataract

and

with high myopia are complicated by cataract because of prolonged ocular axis, degenerative fundus lesions and abnormal intraocular nutritional metabolism. However, this cataract usually develops slowly, but don’t take it lightly.

and

although high myopia has a high risk of these diseases, it does not mean that it will be, but compared with normal people. For example, different people have different resistance to colds. Even if the risk is high, the proportion of glaucoma patients in patients with high myopia is low.
