High myopia requires vigilance against glaucoma

Abstract: unlike reversible blindness such as cataract and corneal disease, glaucoma can also restore vision through surgical treatment. The optic nerve is damaged by glaucoma. Once the visual acuity and visual function are damaged, even if the condition is controlled through treatment, the visual acuity can not be recovered, and the existing visual acuity can only be preserved as much as possible. The

prone group regularly screened

and

, and had a family history of glaucoma. When they were young, they had hyperopia, high myopia, and ocular trauma history, especially those with high intraocular pressure after injury, history of intraocular hemorrhage, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, migraine and so on. Go to a professional eye hospital for glaucoma screening regularly.

according to statistics, there are only 300 professional glaucoma doctors in China, and many hospitals lack professional glaucoma doctors. There are also many doctors with vice senior titles or above. Director Wang specially stressed that glaucoma and glaucoma prone people should go to professional eye hospitals to find professional glaucoma doctors for screening. Families of

should focus on screening.

and

may suffer from glaucoma from newborn infants to the elderly. Glaucoma is still a genetic eye disease. If one person in the family is sick, his immediate family may be sick. If one person in the family is suffering from primary glaucoma, the prevalence rate of his relatives is 7-10 times higher than that of the general population. There are glaucoma patients in the family history of

and

, and their family members should go to a professional ophthalmic hospital for screening as soon as possible. In addition, people over the age of 40 should receive an “eye examination” every two years. People with eye acid, eye swelling, eye fatigue, redness, eye pain, decreased vision, photophobia and tears should go to a professional eye hospital for screening as soon as possible.

physical examination is the best way to prevent

glaucoma. Unlike reversible blindness such as cataract and corneal disease, vision can be restored through surgical treatment. The optic nerve is damaged by glaucoma. Once the visual acuity and visual function are damaged, even if the condition is controlled through treatment, the visual acuity can not be recovered, and the existing visual acuity can only be preserved as much as possible. The cure of

and

glaucoma is aimed at effectively controlling the disease no longer developing. If patients can find it early and follow the doctor’s plan for timely scientific and reasonable treatment, glaucoma can be effectively controlled, and most patients can maintain good visual function in their lifetime. Physical examination is the best prevention. Glaucoma advocates “early detection, early treatment and early control”.
