Complications of myopia

Abstract: flying mosquito disease shows that when people look at things, there are dark shadows floating in front of them, just like mosquitoes flying. In medicine, this condition is called vitreous opacity, which is mainly caused by vitreous degeneration.

retinal detachment: commonly known as “net detachment”, it is mainly manifested in sudden blurred vision, deformation and dark shadow occlusion, which can lead to blindness in severe cases. Once the retina is detached, surgery is needed immediately to avoid further deterioration of vision.

cataract:

lens becomes turbid, resulting in blindness. For high myopia complicated with cataract, the surgical effect may be worse than that of people without high myopia history.

glaucoma

shows high intraocular pressure, progressive decline of visual acuity and narrowing of visual field. It is the second blinding eye disease in the world.

atrophy of retina and choroid

when the atrophy involves the macula, macular hemorrhage and holes can occur, vision can be seriously reduced, and there are central fixed dark spots.

flying mosquito disease

shows that when people look at things, there are dark shadows floating in front of them, just like mosquitoes flying. In medicine, this condition is called vitreous opacity, which is mainly caused by vitreous degeneration. Myopic patients with flying mosquito disease should go to the hospital for examination in time to eliminate fundus lesions.
