Children’s myopia and amblyopia, don’t do this!

Abstract: Amblyopia often occurs in younger children. Many parents believe that if the child is older, amblyopia may be better. There is no need to treat amblyopia as soon as it is found. Moreover, children are small and don’t care about beauty. In fact, the earlier the treatment period of amblyopia, the better. Children over 12 years old will be much less sensitive to amblyopia treatment.

at present, more than 60% of primary school students suffer from myopia. And myopia is spreading to preschool children. So, what misunderstandings should we avoid when helping children correct their eyesight?

misunderstanding – false myopia mistaken for true myopia

children are often in the stage of false myopia in the early stage of myopia. Correction in this period can cure myopia. If the child is found to have myopia symptoms, he should go to the hospital in time for mydriasis. After mydriasis, if the child’s vision returns to normal, it can be determined as pseudomyopia. At this time, children should be urged to pay attention to eye hygiene. This kind of eye hygiene mainly refers to protecting eyesight by letting the eyes rest. The reading time should not exceed 45 minutes. You should look into the distance at each interval and look at more green objects.

direct glasses after computer optometry

many children with myopia immediately wear glasses through computer optometry. Although this method enables children to use the fastest speed and reach the normal level through correction, there is a certain crisis in the protection of eyes. When it is determined that children have myopia, they should not only have optometry and glasses, but also do corresponding eye tests. Especially those who have optometry and glasses for the first time must go to the ophthalmology of formal medical institutions for a comprehensive eye examination to eliminate the blurred vision caused by other abnormal symptoms, so as to eliminate the hidden dangers caused by eye diseases.
