Can’t you give birth naturally after myopia surgery? Do you believe such rumors?

Abstract: if you have high myopia, you’d better have a fundus examination before delivery and consult a special ophthalmologist. If there is no fundus disease, the probability of retinal detachment is very small, and it can be delivered naturally; If there is fundus disease, the probability of retinal detachment will increase.

often have pregnant numbs to consult recently: it is said that you can’t give birth naturally after myopia surgery. Is it true? On this issue, the baby said he had never heard of it! Where did this come from!

if you have high myopia, you’d better have a fundus examination before delivery and consult a special ophthalmologist. If there is no fundus disease, the probability of retinal detachment is very small, and it can be delivered naturally; If there is fundus disease, the probability of retinal detachment will increase. But it does not mean that if there are lesions, caesarean section must be adopted. If you want to ask the probability, it is about the same as the probability of mistakes of Chinese table tennis teams.

generally, we call myopia below 600 degrees as low myopia, and myopia above 600 degrees as high myopia. Generally, low myopia has little effect on pregnant women’s delivery, but high myopia will have some adverse effects on delivery, which is not absolute compared with non myopia pregnant women.

myopia surgery in regular ophthalmic hospitals undergo detailed preoperative examination to ensure the thickness of cornea and sufficient anti intraocular pressure ability. Strict preoperative examination will screen out the diseases that are not suitable for myopia surgery and the eye conditions that are not suitable for myopia surgery, so as to ensure the safety of myopia surgery.

and

will not affect normal delivery whether it is laser myopia surgery or lens implantation myopia surgery. During spontaneous delivery, the maternal force is particularly large. Some pregnant women with high myopia will have elevated intraocular pressure, which may induce retinal detachment. The force here is particularly strong, which can not be compared with our usual heavy physical labor. Therefore, there is the saying that “spontaneous labor will lead to retinal detachment of myopic pregnant women”. All this has nothing to do with myopia surgery!
