Don’t confuse children’s amblyopia with myopia. Parents should pay attention!

Abstract: amblyopia is more common in preschool (before the age of 6), it is a kind of visual function retardation and disorder, often accompanied by strabismus, medium and high hyperopia, high myopia or astigmatism. The eyesight with glasses can not be corrected to normal, and the eyesight from far to near is not good. Some time ago, the 10-year-old child of my friend’s family specially brought him to me to match glasses because he can’t see the blackboard clearly. After examination, he found that the child’s right eye eyesight is 1.0 and his left eye eyesight is 1.0 0.2, the left eye is only 0.5 even with glasses. It turned out that the child had hyperopia and amblyopia in his left eye since childhood, but his friends always thought it was myopia. When thinking about reading, he couldn’t see the blackboard clearly, so he was equipped with a pair of glasses. At work, I often meet parents with this idea. In fact, amblyopia and myopia are easy to be confused, but they are very different., Amblyopia is more common in preschool (before the age of 6). It is a kind of visual function retardation and disorder, often accompanied by strabismus, medium and high hyperopia, high myopia or astigmatism. Wearing glasses can not correct the normal eye disease, and the far and near vision is not good. Myopia often occurs in school age and adolescence (after the age of 6), it is an eye disease caused by too much nearsightedness, excessive tension of eye regulating muscles or heredity, resulting in the lengthening of the eye axis. In addition, children’s corrected vision can reach normal after wearing glasses. Amblyopia is far more harmful to children’s visual function than myopia. Myopia is the decline of vision when they look far because of too much use of eyes after vision is fully developed , without other visual function damage, visual acuity correction can reach more than 1.0. Amblyopia is the visual retardation or even non development caused by various reasons in the process of visual development. After wearing glasses, the visual acuity can not be corrected. People with amblyopia have no stereo vision, that is, both eyes can not be used at the same time, or both eyes have no cooperative function. It is called stereo blindness in medicine. Stereo blindness can’t see the distance and height of objects, and can’t judge their position in space, which affects their career choice in the future., Compared with the two, amblyopia is more harmful. Therefore, if you find that your child has poor eyesight, you must go to the hospital for optometry, so as to find out if there is amblyopia in time and treat it as soon as possible.,

amblyopia is more common in preschool (before the age of 6). It is a kind of visual function retardation and disorder, often accompanied by strabismus, medium and high hyperopia, high myopia or astigmatism. Wearing glasses can not correct normal eye diseases, and the far and near vision is not good.

myopia often occurs in school age and adolescence (after the age of 6), it is an eye disease caused by too much close viewing, excessive tension of eye regulating muscles or heredity, resulting in the lengthening of eye axis. Children can see far and near clearly, and their corrected vision can reach normal after wearing glasses.

Amblyopia is far more harmful to children’s visual function than myopia. Myopia is that after the vision is fully developed, due to excessive use of eyes, the vision decreases when looking far, without other visual function damage, and the vision correction can reach more than 1.0. Amblyopia is the visual retardation or even non development caused by various reasons in the process of visual development. After wearing glasses, the visual acuity can not be corrected. People with amblyopia have no stereo vision, that is, both eyes can not be used at the same time, or both eyes have no cooperative function. It is called stereo blindness in medicine.
