Caution: high myopia or blindness killer

Abstract: it is reported that ametropia with myopia degree greater than 600 degrees, accompanied by ocular axis elongation, fundus retina and choroidal atrophy is called high myopia. Experts suggest that high myopia can cause many serious complications, most of which will cause blindness. It is one of the common causes of blindness in adults.

with the excessive occupation of eyes by electronic media in today’s society, more and more myopia patients have joined the population with high myopia. The survey shows that in the past 10 years, among the 400 million myopia patients in China, the proportion of patients with high myopia has risen to 33%. Experts from Xiamen Kehong ophthalmic hospital pointed out that high myopia has increased the incidence of blindness diseases such as retinal hole, retinal detachment and glaucoma, and more than 280000 patients have been blinded due to high myopia and eye diseases in China.

high myopia complicated with eye diseases has become the “number one enemy” of eye health.

it is reported that ametropia with myopia degree greater than 600 degrees, eye axis extension, fundus retina and choroidal atrophy is called high myopia. Experts suggest that high myopia can cause many serious complications, most of which will cause blindness. It is one of the common causes of blindness in adults. The complications of high myopia such as fundus lesions and macular lesions caused by high myopia have become the number one enemy of the eye.

experts said: “when complications such as retinal detachment, hole and yellow shift disease occur, people think of going to the hospital for treatment. This time is often too late, and may even have led to more serious pathological changes.” In recent years, it has been found that high myopia complicated with eye diseases has become a major and irreversible blinding eye disease, accounting for an increasing proportion in the causes of blindness.

other high myopia patients often cause fundus hemorrhage and retinal detachment due to vascular brittleness and hypertension, resulting in blindness. Experts remind that patients with high myopia must come up with countermeasures to fight myopia, so as not to develop into an irreversible blinding eye disease.

ICL implantation is a new choice for patients with high myopia.

when it comes to the treatment of myopia, people first think of laser surgery. However, experts pointed out that if the cornea of patients with high myopia is too thin, it is not suitable for laser surgery. She explained that the essence of laser surgery is to cut a concave lens on the cornea to correct myopia. The thickness of laser keratectomy is related to the degree of myopia. The higher the degree, the thicker the keratectomy thickness. The normal thickness of human cornea needs to be used to resist intraocular pressure. If you cut too much, it is easy to reduce the anti pressure. Over time, corneal protrusion and rapid progressive myopia increase, which is likely to require corneal transplantation and even blindness. Therefore, the treatment of ultra-high myopia with thin cornea has always been a difficult problem in ophthalmology.

however, with the birth of refractive intraocular lens implantation, after a large number of clinical practice, it has become a new choice for patients with ultra-high myopia to correct their vision. Experts from Kehong explained that ICL crystal implantation technology has been popular in the United States and Germany since 1997, and then passed the FDA certification in the United States and the CE authoritative certification in Europe.

ICL intraocular lens implantation gets rid of the “beer bottle bottom”,

and

. Ophthalmologists point out that ICL implantation has become one of the latest technologies for correcting myopia in the world. After more than ten years of clinical application practice and many technical improvements, it has been widely used all over the world. The key to the safety of ICL intraocular lens implantation for high myopia is its reversibility. If for some reason, the ICL crystal can also be removed without changing the structure and shape of eye tissue, so as to return the eyes to the preoperative state, which is a safer guarantee for patients.
