Do you believe it? Those Jianghu rumors about myopia surgery

Abstract: Ophthalmologists do not do myopia surgery, partly because personal physical conditions are not suitable for it, and partly because they need to retain a certain degree of myopia because they are engaged in close work such as surgery for a long time.

rumor 1: myopia surgery is not mature. You see ophthalmologists still wear glasses. They don’t do it themselves?

1. Myopia surgery can’t be done if you want to. You need to judge whether the operation can be performed by combining the corneal thickness, pupil diameter, and eye and whole body conditions of myopia patients. It can’t be done if it doesn’t meet the surgical indications.

2. Ophthalmologists do not do myopia surgery, partly because personal physical conditions are not suitable for it, and partly because they need to retain a certain degree of myopia because they are engaged in close work such as surgery for a long time.

  3. Among the medical staff, the proportion of myopia surgery is much higher than that of the general population, and the proportion of myopia surgery among the people engaged in ophthalmic medical work is also much higher than that of the general medical staff. The number of medical staff receiving myopia surgery in our hospital accounts for 20% of the total number of people in the hospital, including the attending doctor and head nurse of the refractive center.

rumor 2: the degree is too high to do myopia surgery, which not only has poor effect, but also does great harm to the eyes!

as we all know, the deeper myopia, the more cornea to be cut. Doctors need to consider the patient’s corneal thickness and eye health in the future. Generally speaking, high myopia needs to be corrected by ICL lens implantation.

ICL lens implantation achieves the purpose of myopia correction by implanting a customized intraocular lens into the eye to change the diopter of both eyes. It does not need to cut the cornea, does not damage other structures of the eye, and has higher visual quality.

rumor 3: laser surgery thins the cornea, and keratoconus may appear in the future. When you get old, you will also have cataract and glaucoma, and you may be blind!

and

laser surgery have strict requirements on corneal thickness. Regular eye hospitals only operate on patients who meet the conditions for myopia surgery. If they do not meet the surgical indications, they can’t do it, and the potential safety hazards can be investigated at this time.

and eye diseases such as cataract and glaucoma have nothing to do with myopia surgery. The onset of these eye diseases is age-related. Even without myopia surgery, they may appear after getting old.
