Four complications of myopia

Abstract: high myopia with posterior polar cortical opacity is also common, and the dark adaptation time is relatively prolonged because the pathological changes of pigment epithelial cells in patients with high myopia affect the reaction process of photochemical changes of visual cells.

now there are more and more people with myopia, from college students to white-collar workers, especially those who operate computers. These myopic friends should be careful of complications, serious complications and the risk of blindness. The main complications of

and

are:

,

, cataract, glaucoma,

,

, and high myopia incidence rate of open angle glaucoma is 6 to 8 times higher than that of ordinary people. The decline of visual function is often covered up by the symptoms of high myopia, which is easy to be ignored.

and

are also common in high myopia with posterior polar cortical opacification of the amygdala, and the dark adaptation time is relatively prolonged because the pathological changes of pigment epithelial cells in high myopia affect the reaction process of photochemical changes of visual cells.

flying mosquito disease

high myopia can produce real vitreous degeneration or liquefaction, causing obvious flying mosquito disease. Consciously float the light, spark, flash or shadow in front of you.

posterior scleral staphyloma

is mainly manifested in the backward expansion of the posterior pole of the eye, which is the degeneration and atrophy of the nerve and the retina around the macula, and the decline of corrected visual acuity. The higher the degree of myopia, the higher the incidence.

retinal degeneration, hemorrhage, hole and detachment

due to the lengthening of the ocular axis, the thinning of the posterior half of the eyeball, the atrophy and degeneration of the retina and choroid, there are holes, leading to hemorrhage and retinal detachment of different ranges, resulting in visual loss. In addition, macular degeneration is also the biggest risk of high myopia, which shows visual deformation, vision decline, and eventually lead to blindness.
