How many things you shouldn’t do after myopia?

Abstract: after many children are myopia, parents suspect that their children are pseudomyopia. In fact, pseudomyopia accounts for a very small proportion (no more than 3%) of juvenile myopia. It is only a “myopia” phenomenon, not myopia in essence. Pseudomyopia has little to do with age. When there is a problem with vision, you must go to a regular hospital for medical optometry. After a

child is nearsighted, do you not want him to wear glasses and think it will deepen the degree? Will you go to the hospital for examination after myopia? Or a pair of glasses? Maybe you should take a closer look at this. Misunderstanding 1 of

and

: Children’s poor eyesight is myopia.

once some parents find that their children’s eyesight has decreased or their children have been found to have decreased eyesight during physical examination, they arbitrarily think that the child is suffering from myopia, and then look for doctors everywhere to help their children treat myopia. Facts have proved that this approach is wrong. In fact, there are many eye diseases that can affect children’s vision. In addition to myopia, there are congenital fundus lesions, hyperopia, astigmatism, strabismus, amblyopia and so on. Therefore, when parents find that their children’s vision decreases, they should first take their children to a regular hospital for diagnosis, and then carry out targeted treatment. Otherwise, it will not only waste time and money, but also delay the treatment of children’s eye diseases. Misunderstanding 2 of

and

: children are small, and myopia is pseudomyopia.

after many children are nearsighted, parents suspect that their children are pseudomyopia. In fact, pseudomyopia accounts for a very small proportion (no more than 3%) of juvenile myopia. It is only a “myopia” phenomenon, not myopia in essence. Pseudomyopia has little to do with age. When there is a problem with vision, you must go to a regular hospital for medical optometry. Misunderstanding 3 of

and

: myopia can slowly recover without glasses. In order not to affect children’s learning, some parents always like to treat their children’s myopia during the winter and summer vacation. Many unscrupulous businesses also take advantage of this psychology of parents, claiming that some method or instrument can cure myopia in a month or even more than ten days, leading to many parents being deceived. At present, there is no instrument or equipment that can completely treat myopia or reduce the degree through physical methods. On the contrary, wearing appropriate glasses can control and delay the degree growth. Misunderstanding 4 of

and

: wearing glasses early will deepen and accelerate myopia in the future.

many parents believe that “the sooner they wear glasses, the higher the degree will be in the future”, so they refuse to wear glasses for their children. In fact, this understanding is even more influential than the “false myopia view” in misunderstanding 1. The prescription of glasses should be considered according to the results of optometry, combined with the comprehensive conditions such as visual acuity requirements, eye position, eye muscle movement and amblyopia. Before matching glasses, the first thing is to receive optometry. Only when the refractive state of the eye is clear can appropriate correction be given. Misunderstanding 5 of

and

: myopia can be cured in a short time.

in order not to affect children’s learning, some parents always like to treat myopia during winter and summer vacation after their children suffer from myopia. Many unscrupulous businesses also take advantage of this psychology of parents, claiming that some method or instrument can cure myopia in a month or even more than ten days, leading to many parents being deceived. In fact, the prevention and treatment of myopia is a long-term process, and any short-term assault treatment can not cure myopia. In addition, the prevention and treatment of children’s myopia must start at the age of five or six, and can be stopped until about 20, because at this time, people’s ocular axis has stopped developing, and myopia generally will not develop again. Misunderstanding 6 of

and

: there is no need to recheck

and

after wearing glasses. Many parents no longer take children with myopia to the hospital for examination after matching glasses. This is wrong. Clinical practice has proved that it has the following advantages to often let myopia children with glasses go to the hospital for review: 1 It can determine whether the children’s original pseudomyopia has been cured; 2. Be able to determine whether the pseudomyopia in children’s mixed myopia has been cured; 3. It can determine whether the child’s original true myopia develops. Therefore, after children with myopia wear glasses, parents should often take them to the hospital for review, at least once a year, so as to understand the changes of children with myopia in time. In addition, for school-age children without myopia, parents should often take them to the hospital for eye examination. Because if school-age children with normal eyesight do not adhere to scientific eye use, their eyesight may also decline. Misunderstanding 7 of

and

: eyesight will not decline again in adulthood, and there is no need for nursing?

generally speaking, adult vision will gradually become stable, but not all will be stable. It is normal for adults to increase by 50-75 degrees in two or three years, and there are usually two reasons for the deepening degree of myopia in adults.

and

are pathological myopia. This is an internal lesion of the eye, which is hereditary. It shows that myopia continues to deepen and increases rapidly. If the degree of myopia increases by more than 100 degrees or even more than 200 degrees within a year, or the accumulated high myopia reaches 2000 degrees, it is likely to be pathological myopia. Another reason for

and

is that they do not pay attention to eye hygiene and have incorrect eye habits.

for example, if the lighting is too bright or too dark, the eye is used too long, and eye diseases such as trichiasis, ptosis and keratitis are not diagnosed and treated in time, myopia will be aggravated.

and

therefore, if you are a group with refractive errors, you’d better have an optometry examination once a year. If you don’t have refractive errors, you should also have a visual examination every two years, especially the middle-aged and middle-aged people who bear the dual pressure of social work and family life.
