Abstract: the ocular axis of high myopia is much longer than that of ordinary people, and the retina is much thinner. In the process of some violent exercise or extreme exercise, the originally thin retina is easy to be pulled by the anterior vitreous tissue and produce holes, resulting in retinal detachment.
why does the eye of high myopia look a little deformed?
high myopia cause the growth of ocular axis, which will naturally turn into exophthalmos, which looks bulgy. Especially for high myopia for a long time, exophthalmos will have a great impact on the appearance. In other words, the normal eye axis length is 24mm. For every 300 degrees increase in myopia, the eye axis will increase by 1mm, so think about how much the eyeball of high myopia has been elongated. It’s strange that it doesn’t stand out!
in addition to eye deformation
, you should worry more about it!
high myopia not only affects beauty and life, but also brings many complications, such as retinal detachment, cataract, macular hemorrhage and macular degeneration. The higher the degree, the greater the possibility of complications, and even lead to blindness and ocular atrophy.
violent and impact head movements, such as football, basketball, diving, weight lifting, emergency braking, etc., may cause retinal detachment.
retinal detachment is “what ghost”
if our eyes are compared to a camera, the retina at the fundus is equivalent to the photosensitive “negative” of the camera. The retinal detachment of
is like the negative film coming out of the camera. The photosensitive imaging function of the eye decreases, resulting in varying degrees of visual damage. If the treatment is not timely, it can cause permanent blindness. Why do
love “people with high myopia? The ocular axis of
people with high myopia is much longer than that of ordinary people, and the retina is correspondingly much thinner. In the process of some violent or extreme sports, the originally thin retina is easy to be pulled by the anterior vitreous tissue, resulting in retinal detachment. Compared with ordinary people, high myopia has a much higher probability of retinal detachment.
clinical clinics have found that many patients with retinal detachment do not know themselves after they are ill, and often wait for some time before they come to the hospital for examination and treatment.
and “off-line” treatment need to race against time. Experts from the New Vision Eye Hospital of
remind the majority of people with high myopia: we must pay attention to follow-up observation, check the fundus at least once every half a year, and observe the changes of retina. If retinal degenerative areas or holes are found, we should do laser and other surgical repair in time to prevent further development of retinal detachment. If
does not involve macular degeneration, it must be operated as soon as possible within 72 hours. It can also retain visual function. Over a week, it can cause irreversible visual impairment.
