China is a famous “Kingdom of myopia”. The number of myopia ranks first in the world, especially in teenagers. Especially after children are short-sighted, they always see many parents’ wrong ideas about myopia in clinical practice. Today, we’ll help you dispel the rumors about those common wrong ideas about myopia and see if you are “unlucky”.

rumor 1: vision can recover naturally without glasses after myopia. The truth: myopia is caused by the lengthening of the ocular axis, which cannot be shortened after the lengthening of the ocular axis. It’s like a person can’t get shorter after growing tall, so his eyesight won’t recover naturally after myopia. Many people mistakenly believe that wearing glasses will make the degree of myopia higher and higher. In addition, they hear that their eyesight can recover naturally without glasses. Therefore, many parents will not match their children with glasses after their children are nearsighted. In fact, if children’s myopia is not corrected in time, it will aggravate eye fatigue and make the degree of myopia grow faster. Rumor 2: glasses can be provided anywhere without going to the hospital. The truth is: many parents are unwilling to take their children to the hospital for optometry and glasses for fear of trouble. Children’s myopia glasses matching is a medical process, which needs to be completed through doctor inspection, medical optometry and medical lens making, so as to accurately find out the children’s eye conditions, which cannot be completed in ordinary glasses stores. Aier ophthalmology has a strict medical matching process in the matching of children’s myopia, which can match a pair of more accurate and comfortable glasses, so that children’s eyes can be better corrected. Rumor 3: if there is no obvious change in vision, there is no need for regular inspection. Truth: regular inspection of vision is often considered an optional link. Many parents feel that as long as there is no obvious change in vision, they don’t have to go to the hospital on time. In fact, teenagers are in a critical period of growth and development. Due to heavy study and excessive eye use, children’s eyes are changing at any time. If they do not check regularly and wear a pair of glasses for two or three years, not only the degree may be inappropriate, but also the frame may be damaged, deformed and the lens may be blurred. In this way, it is not conducive to the control of myopia and children’s eye development. Rumor 4: all vision loss is myopia. Truth: once a child’s vision decreases, many parents will mistakenly think it is myopia. In fact, the symptoms of vision decline and unclear vision in children are not necessarily myopia. Eye diseases such as amblyopia will also lead to the above symptoms. Aier ophthalmologists remind that children’s eye problems can not be ignored. Once their eyesight changes, they must go to the hospital for examination and treatment.
