Help you answer two questions about eye exercises

Abstract: we are no strangers to eye exercises. It has been more than 50 years since they were popularized in China in the 1960s. But in fact, eye exercises can only alleviate eye fatigue and eye pain, and have no obvious effect on the prevention and treatment of myopia.

eye exercises have been popularized in China since the 1960s, more than 50 years ago. But recently, some netizens released a microblog that “eye exercises have been cheated for 50 years”, saying that doing eye exercises “can not improve eyesight”, and students massage their eyes with dirty hands, which is easy to cause eye diseases. This statement is instantly filled with circles of friends and microblogs, and has been supported by many netizens. What are the facts? Xiaobian will answer for you.

eye exercises can prevent myopia?

some parents believe that children now have a heavy burden on their eyes. Eye exercises should close their eyes and refresh themselves, which may be helpful to their eyes. “But why do eye exercises every day? Are there so many ‘small glasses’? Can eye exercises prevent myopia?” Ms. Han, a citizen, said she was very worried because her 10-year-old daughter was only in the fourth grade and now wears glasses. Many parents also hold this view.

and

in fact, eye exercises are mainly used for health care. Through the massage of eye and head acupoints, the blood in the eyes and brain can be unblocked, the eye muscles can be relaxed, and the eye fatigue caused by using the eyes for a long time can be improved. But the role of myopia prevention and treatment is not obvious. Doing eye exercises doesn’t mean you can’t be myopia.

myopia is mostly related to heredity, environment and whether to use eyes scientifically. If parents are highly myopic, the incidence rate of myopia is 6 higher than that of others. 4 times, it can be seen that the genetic probability is more than 80%.

the key to reducing myopia is prevention. What needs to be done most is outdoor activities, take part in more sports, combine far and near eyes, and don’t use eyes for a long time and close distance. Of course, students with myopia should wear glasses and change their eye habits.

doing eye exercises is more likely to infect eye diseases?

“doing eye exercises can not only prevent myopia, but also may be harmful.” This view is also a hot spot in the content of “eye exercises cheated for 50 years” which is popular on the Internet. Because they often touch and rub their eyes with unclean hands, It increases the risk of eye infection and even respiratory tract infection (the virus will enter the upper respiratory tract from the nasolacrimal duct), which is not a good habit. Is eye exercises really easier to infect eye diseases?

This is a statement without scientific basis. Eye exercises are not significantly associated with myopia incidence rate. Eye exercises massage the skin around the eyes. The bacteria carried by dirty hands may not enter the eyes. Whether eye exercises are more likely to infect eye diseases requires rigorous epidemiological investigation. At present, there is no similar clear case and investigation basis.
