Does the child need not worry if he is pseudomyopia?

Abstract: myopia is a kind of ametropia. When the human eye is at rest, that is, when the human eye is relaxed, distant objects cannot focus on the retina, but form a focus in front of the retina, resulting in blurred distant objects., One day, your child may tell you that he can’t see the blackboard clearly recently, or you find that your child always squints when looking at things. You begin to realize that your child may be short-sighted, but you don’t pay attention to it, because you have heard a word from all kinds of parents – pseudomyopia. So, maybe after a summer vacation, the child wears a pair of 200 degree glasses… Misunderstanding: Children’s myopia = pseudomyopia, myopia is a kind of ametropia. When the human eye is at rest, that is, when the human eye is relaxed, distant objects cannot focus on the retina, but form a focus in front of the retina, resulting in blurred distant objects., Different from the true myopia caused by the elongation of the eye axis, the ciliary muscle in the eye is easy to spasm after using the eye for a long time and close distance, resulting in false myopia. Pseudomyopia is very common in teenagers and children, so many parents mistakenly believe that children’s myopia belongs to pseudomyopia., Pseudomyopia is just the beginning. The diagnosis of pseudomyopia needs mydriatic optometry. The ciliary muscle of the eyes of teenagers and children has good elasticity and strong adjustment ability.

If you continue not to pay attention to using your eyes, the ciliary muscles continue to contract and spasm, and you can’t get the rest you deserve, pseudomyopia may develop into true myopia, and the visual acuity decline of true myopia is irreversible., Therefore, the diagnosis of pseudomyopia is just the beginning.

misunderstanding: Children’s myopia = pseudomyopia

myopia is a kind of ametropia. When the human eye is at rest, that is, when the human eye is relaxed, distant objects cannot focus in the retina, but form a focus in front of the retina, resulting in blurred distant objects.

and

are different from the true myopia caused by the elongation of the eye axis. When the eye is used for a long time and close distance, the ciliary muscle in the eye is easy to spasm, resulting in false myopia. Pseudomyopia is very common in teenagers and children, so many parents mistakenly believe that children’s myopia belongs to pseudomyopia.

pseudomyopia is just the beginning of

to diagnose pseudomyopia, which needs mydriatic optometry. The ciliary muscle of the eyes of teenagers and children has good elasticity and strong adjustment ability. If the ciliary muscle is paralyzed without mydriasis drugs, false myopia may be misdiagnosed as true myopia.

for parents, the diagnosis of children with pseudomyopia can be said to be a happy result, because it means that myopia has not really formed, but it does not mean that parents can take it lightly. If you continue not to pay attention to using your eyes, the ciliary muscles continue to contract and spasm, and you can’t get the rest you deserve, pseudomyopia may develop into true myopia, and the visual acuity decline of true myopia is irreversible.

and

therefore, the diagnosis of pseudomyopia is only the beginning, and then regular reexamination, monitoring children’s visual changes and improving eye habits are very important to prevent pseudomyopia from developing into true myopia.

how to treat pseudomyopia?

at present, there are many methods to treat pseudomyopia, mainly to relax and adjust, so as to achieve the purpose of treating false and preventing true. Common methods are:

(1) improve the learning environment: when reading and writing, pay attention to keeping the distance of 30 cm between eyes and books and correct sitting position. Pay attention to natural light and ensure sufficient indoor lighting.

(2) Combine work and rest, get rid of bad study habits, take 10-15 minutes off every 40-50 minutes of reading, do not lie down or walk to read. Pay attention to strengthen physical exercise.

(3) drug treatment, use atropine and other drugs under the guidance of doctors, and adjust through mydriasis and relaxation to achieve the purpose of treating pseudomyopia.

(4) Acupuncture and moxibustion treatment, in addition to drug treatment, traditional Chinese medicine acupuncture and moxibustion also has a quite good effect on alleviating and treating pseudomyopia.
