Do you know that hyperopia is more important than myopia?

Abstract: children with hyperopia can not see clearly not only near but also far. Especially in the case of medium and high hyperopia or combined astigmatism, clinical observation shows that children with hyperopia are prone to strabismus and amblyopia if they are not found and treated in time.

1 for the prevention and treatment of myopia, we observed that most people, parents and children have a certain understanding and pay more attention to it. The situation is different for hyperopia. In the group of children with ametropia, the incidence of hyperopia is far lower than that of myopia, which leads to some of our parents and children’s lack of cognition of hyperopia. So that some people even say: “myopia can see near clearly, and hyperopia can see far clearly.” This makes the doctor sound really speechless.

2 the truth is that children with hyperopia can not see clearly not only near but also far. Especially in the case of medium and high hyperopia or combined astigmatism, clinical observation shows that children with hyperopia are prone to strabismus and amblyopia if they are not found and treated in time. This is particularly prominent in children with high hyperopia.

3 at the same time, we must also clarify another important concept: the age-related physiological hyperopia must be considered in the diagnosis of hyperopia in children. Because, age-related physiological hyperopia can not be regarded as a real hyperopia to be corrected with glasses. The developing eyeball should have a time and space for natural development. Otherwise, it will promote the occurrence of myopia and lead to the formation of epitaxial inclination, which can be said to be wrong for life!

4 in a word, for children and adolescents suffering from hyperopia (non physiological), early detection and early treatment – hyperopia is more important than myopia.
