Children check out hyperopia. Can they be cured?

Abstract: myopia may be familiar to everyone. The main reason is that you can’t see clearly in the distance. Is hyperopia, as the name suggests, that is, you can’t see clearly in the far and near? In fact, it’s not. Farsightedness is that you can’t see far and near clearly.

Now some kindergartens will check children’s eyesight, and some will use some eyesight screening instruments to check the degree of children’s eyes. If children are found to have hyperopia, parents will be very nervous.

In fact, not all hyperopia needs to be corrected for children.

First, let’s see what is hyperopia?

Myopia may be familiar to everyone. The main reason is that you can’t see clearly in the distance. Is hyperopia, as the name suggests, that is, you can’t see clearly in the far and near? In fact, it’s not. Farsightedness is that you can’t see far and near clearly.

Why? Let’s first see how the eyes can see things.

Because the shape of the eye is not so perfect, it may be too long or too short, or there may be a problem with the refractive ability of the lens, resulting in the light entering the eye can not be focused on the retina. We call it ametropia, including near vision, far vision and astigmatism.

How to reverse myopia naturally

Hyperopia is due to the small curvature of the cornea and lens, that is, the ability to refract light is relatively weak, or the eyeball is too short, so that the light finally focuses on the back of the retina. Therefore, both distant light and near light can not be clearly imaged on the retina, which shows that it is not clear to see far and near.

When the degree of hyperopia is small, the general eyes can compensate through their own adjustment, but it is also easy to lead to visual fatigue over time; When the degree of hyperopia is large, you can’t see clearly from far to near. You need to use a convex lens to correct it, so that the light can focus on the retina normally.

What is physiological hyperopia?

We are all babies and then grow up slowly. The eyeballs are the same. When we were born, our eyeballs were small, so most of them were hyperopia.

When we open our eyes and start to see the world, external vision stimulates our eyeball development. Under normal circumstances, the eyeball will regulate and make the refractive state match the length of the eye axis, that is, when the eye is relaxed, external objects can just focus on the retina after entering the eye. At this time, the refractive power of the eye is 0, The eye changes from the initial “hyperopia eye” to “emmetropia eye”, that is, the process of “emmetropia” is completed.

Generally, we will complete the process of emmetropia around the age of 8. Before completing the “emmetropia”, it is normal for the eyes to have a little hyperopia, also known as hyperopia reserve, which is a good thing, because it can avoid the premature occurrence of myopia.

Is it OK for children with hyperopia?

If a child’s hyperopia degree is far greater than the average level, such as a 6-year-old child with 500 degrees of hyperopia, it must be abnormal. It is necessary to dilate the pupils as soon as possible for optometry and glasses. Otherwise, because the hyperopia degree is too high, the child has been in a state where he can’t see near and far, which may affect his visual development and lead to amblyopia.

Therefore, it is suggested that parents should establish a vision file for children. Generally, children aged 3 can learn to check their eyesight. At this time, they can start to check their eyesight and eye degree every year, so as to understand whether their children’s eyesight is normal. If hyperopia is too high, they need glasses as soon as possible, Low hyperopia reserve requires early intervention to avoid premature myopia.
