Do you also believe in the common misunderstanding of myopia?

Abstract: many parents believe that it doesn’t matter if their children have astigmatism. As long as it is not serious, it doesn’t need to be corrected. In fact, this should be treated differently. First, astigmatism can be divided into light, medium and high. About 80% of them are mild astigmatism, about 15% are moderate astigmatism and about 5% are high astigmatism.

nowadays, there are more and more young people with myopia. How did adolescent myopia do? Many parents have various misunderstandings about teenagers’ myopia, and these misunderstandings are likely to accelerate the development of children’s myopia. Today, Xiaobian has summarized some common misunderstandings about myopia for everyone. Come and see if you are also trapped in such misunderstandings. Misunderstanding 1 of

and

: vision loss = myopia

and

some parents judge their children as myopia without ophthalmologist’s examination after their children have blurred vision, and take their children to the glasses store for optometry and glasses matching. In fact, there are many reasons for children’s blurred vision. In addition to myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and pseudomyopia will lead to blurred vision or decreased vision. After vision problems occur, you must first judge the causes of the problems, and do not match glasses blindly. Misunderstanding 2 of

and

: myopia needs glasses.

and

myopia can be divided into true myopia and false myopia. False myopia does not need glasses. It can be recovered by changing eye habits or adjuvant treatment. If you match glasses according to the degree of pseudomyopia, it will come true. Once you develop true myopia, it will not be reversible. Misunderstanding 3 of

and

: astigmatism does not need to be corrected.

and

many parents think that it doesn’t matter if their children have astigmatism. As long as it is not serious, it doesn’t need to be corrected. In fact, this should be treated differently. First, astigmatism can be divided into light, medium and high. About 80% of them are mild astigmatism, about 15% are moderate astigmatism and about 5% are high astigmatism.

if astigmatism is mild and asymptomatic, it does not need to be corrected, but if there are symptoms such as visual fatigue, squint and torticollis, it should be corrected accurately. Medium and high astigmatism usually must be corrected. Misunderstanding 4 of

and

: wearing glasses will cause eye “protrusion”

many people think that wearing glasses for myopia will cause eye deformation and protrusion. In fact, it is the deepening of myopia and the growth of eye axis that leads to eye deformation and protrusion in some people, rather than wearing glasses. The growth of myopia is due to the prominent deformation of the eyes, while inappropriate glasses with significantly low degrees are just more prone to visual fatigue, which may promote the deepening of myopia.
