Children’s myopia soared? Myopia prevention and control parents must get out of the misunderstanding!

Abstract: low vision can also be divided into two types: physiological and pathological. The so-called low physiological vision is that the child’s eye development is relatively slow, but not very serious. Pathological low vision means that there may be organic lesions in the eyes., Juvenile myopia is getting younger and younger, which has become a serious social problem. Glasses have increasingly become the standard for teenagers. The key factor is that most parents do not pay enough attention to their children’s myopia and have cognitive misunderstandings., If parents can’t form a correct understanding of their children’s myopia, they will miss the best time to correct their children’s myopia, which will have an indelible impact on their children’s future! Perhaps in this life, children should be accompanied by thick lenses and become “mirror slaves”. Finally, I missed my hobby of sports, gave up my major, and even couldn’t choose my favorite job., In 2012, there were about 500 million patients with myopia and hyperopia among people over 5 years old in China, about 450 million people with myopia, and the total population with high myopia was as high as 30 million. Among them, the prevalence of myopia among high school students and college students is more than 70%, and is increasing year by year. The prevalence of juvenile myopia has ranked first in the world, and has shown a “two tip” pattern of “the older the more common, the younger the age, the faster the growth rate”., So, what misunderstandings should we avoid when helping children correct their eyesight?, Myth 1: Children’s poor eyesight is myopia. Low eyesight is also divided into two types: physiological and pathological. The so-called low physiological vision is that the child’s eye development is relatively slow, but not very serious. Pathological low vision is that the eyes may have organic lesions. There are many reasons for poor eyesight. It is not only myopia. On the contrary, 95% of the poor eyesight of preschool children is not myopia, but caused by hyperopia and astigmatism. Therefore, parents who find their children’s eye problems should go to a professional eye hospital for examination as soon as possible., Myth 2: don’t wear glasses too early. Some school-age children are short-sighted in grade one and two. Many parents will insist on not giving their children glasses, believing that “once they wear glasses, myopia will become deeper and deeper”. In fact, children who are already short-sighted will squint at distant objects without glasses. In the long run, it will make myopia develop faster.,

Teenagers’ myopia is getting younger and younger, which has become a serious social problem, and glasses have increasingly become the standard for teenagers. The key factor is that most parents do not pay enough attention to their children’s myopia and have cognitive misunderstandings.

so, what misunderstandings should we avoid when helping children correct their eyesight?

misunderstanding 1: Children’s poor vision is myopia.

low vision is also divided into two types: physiological and pathological. The so-called low physiological vision is that the child’s eye development is relatively slow, but not very serious. Pathological low vision is that the eyes may have organic lesions. There are many reasons for poor eyesight. It is not only myopia. On the contrary, 95% of the poor eyesight of preschool children is not myopia, but caused by hyperopia and astigmatism. Therefore, parents who find their children’s eye problems should go to a professional eye hospital for examination at the first time. Misunderstanding 2 of

and

: don’t wear glasses too early. Some school-age children are myopia in grade one and two. Many parents will insist on not giving their children glasses, believing that “once they wear glasses, myopia will become deeper and deeper”. In fact, children with myopia will squint at distant objects without glasses. In the long run, myopia will develop faster. Misunderstanding 3 of

and

: there is no distinction between true and false myopia.

and

the so-called “false myopia” refers to the decline in vision caused by excessive eye fatigue. It may be that too much eye use in the near future may cause a temporary decline in vision. After mydriatic optometry, the refractive state is mild hyperopia or no myopia, which is a completely normal refractive state. Many parents match their children with glasses without mydriasis optometry in the glasses shop, so as to change pseudomyopia into true myopia. Misunderstanding 4 of

and

: the more myopia glasses are changed, the higher the degree of myopia.

and

the reasons for the deepening of myopia in adolescence are excessive eye burden and unscientific eye habits, in addition to genetic factors. During the period of rapid height development, the degree of myopia often deepens rapidly. Therefore, on the basis of scientific and reasonable correction, whether myopia deepens has nothing to do with whether to replace glasses. The premise is that the glasses are scientific and suitable for children. Misunderstanding 5 of

and

: myopia glasses should not be matched too clearly.

and

glasses should be matched accurately, not “over corrected” or “leave room”. If the degree is too high, it belongs to “over correction”, which may lead to children’s dizziness after wearing glasses; With a low degree of “leave room”, myopia may be further deepened.
