Have you caught the five misunderstandings about myopia

Abstract: because children’s eye adjustment ability is very high, it is possible to detect too high myopia without mydriasis and paralysis of ciliary muscle, Or they have no myopia and the examination results show myopia (pseudomyopia). As we all know, China has become a big country with myopia. At present, the prevalence of myopia among senior high school students and college students in China is more than 70%, even among primary school students. Although there are so many myopia, many parents still have many misunderstandings about their children’s myopia. Many people believe that myopia is a common phenomenon, not a phenomenon Is this view correct?, In fact, myopia is a disease! According to the degree of myopia, it can be divided into mild myopia ( 600 degrees). Medium and low myopia only needs to wear glasses, but it will develop into high myopia and the excessive growth of eye axis will bring many complications, and even blindness in severe cases. Research shows that the risk of retinopathy in high myopia above 800 degrees is increased by 40%, such as retinal detachment, retinal choroidal atrophy, macular hemorrhage and macular hole Disease can cause irreversible damage to vision., In life, we often encounter many myopia who are unwilling to wear glasses. We always think that wearing glasses will increase the degree of myopia. Is that right?, Wearing glasses will not increase the degree of myopia, and it is more harmful not to wear glasses! Because the occurrence of myopia is the axis of the eye (anterior posterior diameter of eyeball) lengthening results. Wearing glasses is to correct myopia, and wearing correct glasses itself will not lead to myopia. Glasses of appropriate degree can also effectively prevent the deepening of myopia. In another case, when wearing glasses, some people will ask to lower the degree of glasses, thinking that this can control the growth of myopia This is also wrong! Wearing glasses with inappropriate degrees, you will see things vaguely, but you will look harder, resulting in the growth of eye axis and the deepening of myopia! And this will also bring additional burden to the eyes, which may cause esotropia or strabismus. Therefore, proper glasses can ensure clear vision and control the rapid growth of eye power., Some nearsighted people are reluctant to wear glasses. It is said that they are afraid that wearing glasses will lead to eye deformation., In fact, wearing glasses will not cause eye deformation! Eye deformation is because of myopia, not because of glasses! The bulge of the eye is the result of the growth of the eye axis, Moreover, the eyes seen through myopia glasses (concave lens) are narrowed by the frame, and taking out the glasses will cause visual errors. Therefore, it is not because of the deformation caused by wearing glasses, but because the change of the structure of myopia itself leads to the “convex” of the eyes 。, Many parents think that mydriasis in children’s glasses will endanger their health. Why must children’s glasses have mydriasis? Can you omit this link?,

many people believe that myopia is a common phenomenon, not a disease. Is this view correct?

myopia is actually a disease! According to the degree of myopia, it can be divided into mild myopia ( 600 degrees). Medium and low myopia only needs to wear glasses, but it will develop into high myopia and the excessive growth of eye axis will bring many complications, and even blindness in severe cases. Research shows that the risk of retinopathy in high myopia above 800 degrees is increased by 40%, such as retinal detachment, retinal choroidal atrophy, macular hemorrhage and macular hole Disease can cause irreversible damage to vision.

in life, we often encounter many myopia who are unwilling to wear glasses. We always think that wearing glasses will increase the degree of myopia. Is that right?

wearing glasses will not increase the degree of myopia, and it is more harmful not to wear glasses! Because the occurrence of myopia is the axis of the eye (anterior posterior diameter of eyeball) lengthening results. Wearing glasses is to correct myopia, and wearing correct glasses itself will not lead to myopia. Glasses of appropriate degree can also effectively prevent the deepening of myopia. In another case, when wearing glasses, some people will ask to lower the degree of glasses, thinking that this can control the growth of myopia This is also wrong! Wearing glasses with inappropriate degrees, you will see things vaguely, but you will look harder, resulting in the growth of eye axis and the deepening of myopia! And this will also bring additional burden to the eyes, which may cause esotropia or strabismus. Therefore, proper glasses can ensure clear vision, so as to control the rapid growth of eye power.

some myopia are unwilling to wear glasses. It is said that they are afraid that wearing glasses will lead to eye deformation.

in fact, wearing glasses will not cause eye deformation! Eye deformation is because of myopia, not because of glasses! The bulge of the eye is the result of the growth of the eye axis, Moreover, the eyes seen through myopia glasses (concave lens) are narrowed by the frame.

Many parents think that mydriasis in children’s glasses will endanger their health. Why must children’s glasses have mydriasis? Can you omit this link?

because children’s eye adjustment ability is very high, it is possible to detect too high myopia without mydriasis and paralysis of ciliary muscle, Or they have no myopia and the examination results show myopia (pseudomyopia). Therefore, when fitting glasses for children and adolescents, doctors first require mydriatic optometry, and the result is the child’s true eye diopter. Secondly, mydriasis has no impact on children. Mydriasis, photophobia and difficulty in approaching after mydriasis are normal phenomena. Parents don’t need to worry. They just need to avoid strong light after mydriasis Shoot. Don’t use your eyes at close range. Generally, you can recover after 6 hours. Normal doses of cycloplegic agents rarely produce other side effects, onlyVery few children will have some symptoms due to drug side effects, such as flushing, fever, headache and nausea. At this time, stop the drug immediately and consult a doctor.

many organizations in the market now claim that “myopia can be treated”. Is that really true?

and

have no effective treatment for myopia at present. Many non-medical institutions or informal medical institutions take advantage of the psychology that parents do not want their children to wear glasses to carry out various myopia “treatment” projects, such as massage, acupuncture, physiotherapy, therapeutic instruments, etc. These are actually ineffective. At present, myopia can not be treated. Methods such as corneal shaping lens can delay the development of myopia, and myopia laser surgery can correct myopia by changing the refractive power of cornea, which can not change the essence of myopia – the length of eye axis.
