Do you know? 80% of children with high myopia suffer from the word “etc” of their parents!

Abstract: the ocular axis of patients with true myopia is significantly longer than the original. According to expert analysis, the degree of myopia increases by 300 degrees for every 1mm increase in the ocular axis in patients with myopia. Generally, myopia below 300 degrees is called low myopia, myopia between 300 and 600 degrees is called moderate myopia, and myopia above 600 degrees is called high myopia. Since

engaged in eye care, it has been found that most children’s myopia can be avoided and controlled, but because parents have been dragging their children until they can’t see the blackboard clearly, it was more than 200 degrees at that time! And ask a really low-level question: can the child’s vision be fully restored? We can only tell you: children just have myopia. If they are pseudomyopia, they can recover quickly if they intervene in time. Once true myopia forms, it is a flood and beast, with an average annual growth of 50 ~ 150 degrees!

therefore, first of all, we must quickly control the growth of children’s myopia, otherwise children are likely to become highly myopia after the age of 18! Therefore, if children’s vision is abnormal, such as vision between 0.6 ~ 1.0, early intervention is needed.

three stages of myopia development

pseudomyopia stage

pseudomyopia is functional and reversible. If physical methods or other physiotherapy are used to relieve the spasm of the child’s ciliary muscle and restore the eyeball to its original state, it can prevent the formation of true myopia and block the development of myopia. If there is no good intervention at this time, the retina will stimulate the continuous development of sclera, cause the growth of ocular axis, and gradually evolve into true myopia. The stage of


pseudomyopia is very short, generally only 3 ~ 9 months, and the visual acuity is 0.6 ~ 0.8 (4.8 ~ 4.9). This situation mostly occurs in teenagers. However, when a considerable part of myopia just occurs, the visual acuity decreases very slightly, and some are even within the normal range. In addition, teenagers have strong adjustment ability and the visual acuity itself has a certain compensatory ability, so it is difficult to find myopia. With the deepening of degree and the sharp decline of visual acuity, most of them have developed into true myopia.

true myopia stage

true myopia patients’ ocular axis is significantly increased than before. According to expert analysis, the myopia degree increases by 300 degrees for every 1mm increase in ocular axis in myopia patients. Generally, myopia below 300 degrees is called low myopia, myopia between 300 and 600 degrees is called moderate myopia, and myopia above 600 degrees is called high myopia. The development of myopia in young children is characterized by rapid growth, with an average annual growth of 50 ~ 150 degrees until the age of 18. Some even have an annual growth rate of more than 200 degrees.

high myopia stage

adolescent myopia patients with the increase of ocular axis, the eyeball continues to expand, which is much larger than the normal eyeball in the eyeball specimen. In the process of eyeball enlargement, the sclera and choroid can grow continuously according to the signal requirements inside the eye, but the retina cannot grow with it. In order to stick to the increased sclera and choroid, there will be many cracks or lattice degeneration around the retina, resulting in early lesions for retinal detachment in the future.


to control the growth of juvenile myopia by



because children’s eyes are generally mature at the age of 18, teenagers are required to check their eyesight regularly when they are just myopia. If you find that your eyesight has decreased, you should pay attention. When the vision drops to 1.0, positive measures should be taken in time. At the moment, we should pay more attention to eye hygiene, and parents should pay attention to supervision at ordinary times.

  2. After myopia, pay attention to the “golden correction period”,


. When children are just myopia, most of them are pseudomyopia, and the diopter is generally no more than 200 degrees. This period is the golden period of correction, which is very easy to correct. So parents must use some protective measures.

  3. Don’t delay myopia control and prevent complications


some parents think their children are still young. They can correct them when their children grow up. As a result, their children miss the best prevention and control time, and their eyesight becomes worse and worse until they become highly myopia. You know, High myopia (adults > 600 degrees, children > 400 degrees) is the biggest culprit of eye complications. Eye diseases such as floaters, cataracts, retinal detachment, glaucoma and vitreous diseases are common complications of high myopia. At the same time, patients with high myopia should avoid intense exercise, otherwise they will increase the risk of retinal detachment and other diseases.
