Children’s myopia is becoming more and more serious because their parents don’t pay attention to these details!

Abstract: after discovering the child’s myopia, many parents’ first reaction is to take him to the glasses store to match glasses. However, most optical shops will directly omit the inspection of binocular visual function due to imperfect equipment. As everyone knows, this is the essence of optometry. According to the data of

, the incidence rate of juvenile myopia in China is over 50%, and about 80% in high school. In recent years, the trend of myopia aging is very obvious.

and

for the prevention and control of children’s myopia, many parents have their own experience: some let teachers take more care of sitting in the front row at the beginning of school, some worry about the deepening of children’s degree and choose not to wear glasses, and others use acupuncture and massage to correct children’s vision. However, these prevention and control concepts with a broad “mass base” seem to be very effective. In fact, they are not good for children’s vision. Misunderstanding 1 of

and

: myopia is not a big problem. It’s good to go to the glasses store to get glasses.

and

after finding that the child is short-sighted, many parents’ first reaction is to take him to the glasses store to get glasses. However, most optical shops will directly omit the inspection of binocular visual function due to imperfect equipment. As everyone knows, this is the essence of optometry. Through the binocular visual function test, we can find the real cause of children’s myopia. Even if it is the same 100 degree myopia, the binocular visual function test results are different, and the prevention and treatment methods are also different.

and

especially for young children with myopia, binocular visual function examination can find out the causes of children’s myopia, accurately predict the development of vision, and then select an appropriate myopia prevention and control plan.

therefore, it is the right choice to go to the hospital for ophthalmic optometry. Misunderstanding 2 of

and

: without glasses, the degree of myopia will not rise.

and

many parents are unwilling to wear glasses for their children in order to control the growth of the degree, because they are worried that the degree of myopia will soar all the way after their children wear glasses. However, without glasses, the degree will not deepen?

whether a child needs to wear glasses depends on whether the child is true myopia or false myopia. If it is pseudomyopia, you can restore your vision by sleeping or mydriasis; If it is true myopia, but does not wear glasses and does not correct ametropia in time, it will lead to eye fatigue more easily and the degree will increase faster.

therefore, when a child’s vision is found to have problems, parents should take the child to the ophthalmic department for optometry as soon as possible and provide glasses according to the situation. Does wearing glasses mean that the degree will not rise? Not necessarily. Most of the learning tasks of children at this stage are heavy, and the eyeballs are developing, the eye axis is lengthening, and the degree is very likely to increase. Therefore, wearing glasses is difficult to reduce the degree of myopia. We can only try to slow down the increase of the degree of myopia or no longer increase. Misunderstanding 3 of

and

: all kinds of therapies can cure myopia.

and

once children suffer from myopia, many parents will blindly use various methods to help their children treat, such as acupuncture, massage and the use of various therapeutic instruments.

in fact, many methods and instruments for the treatment of myopia will be counterproductive if they are not used properly. In fact, true myopia is irreversible and can only be corrected to improve vision. At present, there are only two effective ways to correct myopia: wearing glasses and surgery. Misunderstanding 4 of

and

: myopia can be cured in a short time.

and

in order not to affect children’s learning, some parents always like to treat myopia during winter and summer vacation after their children suffer from myopia. Many unscrupulous businesses also take advantage of this psychology of parents, claiming that some method or instrument can cure myopia in a month or even more than ten days, leading to many parents being deceived.

in fact, the prevention and treatment of myopia is a long-term process. Any short-term assault treatment can not cure myopia. In addition, the prevention and treatment of children’s myopia must start at the age of five or six, and can be stopped until about 20, because at this time, people’s ocular axis has stopped developing, and myopia generally will not develop again. Misunderstanding 5 of

and

: there is no need to recheck

and

after wearing glasses. Many parents will no longer take their children to the hospital for examination after matching glasses, which is another misunderstanding of parents. The clinical practice of

and

has proved that it is necessary for teenagers to check their eyesight regularly. On the one hand, it can determine whether myopia continues to develop. On the other hand, it can also know whether the glasses currently worn are suitable for children, because wearing unsuitable glasses is also harmful.

therefore, parents should often take children with myopia to the hospital for review after wearing glasses, at least twice a year, so as to understand the changes of children with myopia in time. In addition, for school-age children without myopia, parents should often take them to the hospital for eye examination. Because if school-age children with normal eyesight do not adhere to scientific eye use, their eyesight may also decline. Misunderstanding 6 of

and

: myopia should sit in the front row of the classroom.

and

in the class, most of the children’s seats are arranged according to their height, short people sit in the front and tall people sit in the back. However, many parents want their children with myopia to sit in the front row, believing that this can better listen to the class and see the words on the blackboard.

and

in fact, the front row of the classroom is precisely the disaster area of myopia, which is more likely to be myopia than the students with the back seats. If students always sit in the first row and the second row and face the blackboard closely for a long time, it is easy to form myopia. At the same time, children with slight myopia sitting in the front row are more likely to deepen the degree step by step and be undetected.

myopic students should not sit in the front row. Sitting 5 to 6 meters away from the blackboard is the best position. Special attention should be paid to that if the child is pseudomyopia and deliberately adjusts to the front row, it may become true myopia. In addition, even students whose eyes are not short-sighted temporarily, it is best not to sit in the front row for a long time.
