Don’t rely on glasses for exophthalmos. It’s more serious not to wear myopia glasses!!

Abstract: once the eyes are prominent, it is difficult to shrink back to the original state. There is generally no way to correct the exophthalmos that has been caused. The most effective remedy is to avoid deepening the degree of myopia. For example, we should correct the bad eye habits and let the eyes rest more. Don’t stare at the computer and mobile phone for a long time. Pay attention to looking at the distance from time to time to relax the eyes, strike a proper balance between work and rest.

many myopic people find that they wear glasses for a long time, and their eyeballs become more and more prominent, becoming “dead fish eyes”. In fact, exophthalmos has nothing to do with wearing glasses.

there are generally two reasons for the prominence you see:

1. One situation is caused by myopia itself;

2. Another situation is the visual illusion caused by wearing glasses.

and

myopia are divided into refractive myopia and axial myopia. Axial myopia is the extension of the front and rear diameter of the eyeball, which gives people the appearance and feeling that the eyeball protrudes outward. People who wear glasses for a long time often show a mixture of axial myopia and refractive myopia. Therefore, eye deformation is not caused by glasses, but by myopia (axial myopia). The deeper the degree, the longer the eye axis, and the more prominent the eye will look.

however, this change will also vary from person to person.

as explained above, myopia itself will lengthen the wheelbase of our eyes, which may make the eyeball convex. However, there is a certain space in our orbit. After the eye axis is elongated, if the space behind is large enough, we will feel that the person’s eyeball does not protrude forward obviously; However, if the orbital space is relatively small, after the eye axis is elongated, it will feel more obvious to protrude forward. This is also the reason why some people with myopia have prominent eyes, while some people are still not very obvious even if their degrees are deep.

visual appearance illusion

in addition to myopia itself, there is another situation that is just an illusion of visual appearance. Because myopia glasses are concave lenses, the eyes of people wearing glasses will look smaller, and the feeling of bulge or depression of their eyes will shrink; When you take off your glasses, you will feel significantly enlarged, so your eyes will look more prominent than when you wear glasses. This is why many people feel that their eyes will be deformed after wearing glasses for a long time.

many people are concerned about whether the axial process caused by myopia can be alleviated. Once the eyes of

protrude, it is difficult to shrink back to the original state. There is generally no way to correct the exophthalmos that has been caused. The most effective remedy is to avoid further deepening of myopia. For example, we should correct the bad eye habits and let the eyes rest more. Don’t stare at the computer and mobile phone for a long time. Pay attention to looking at the distance from time to time to relax the eyes, strike a proper balance between work and rest. Don’t be afraid of eyeball protrusion without wearing glasses, which will only make the situation more serious. Choose a pair of glasses suitable for yourself, conduct visual optical inspection regularly, and adjust the degree of glasses in time.
