How to distinguish between true myopia and false myopia?

Abstract: myopia can generally be divided into two types: one is because the anterior and posterior length of the eye (also known as anterior and posterior diameter) exceeds the normal length of 24 mm. This myopia is called “true myopia”, also known as “axial myopia”. The other is caused by not paying attention to eye hygiene.

suffering from myopia is particularly painful, because when looking at things, they always can’t see clearly, which seriously affects the life of patients. For myopia, many friends only know some things on the surface. In fact, myopia can be divided into true and false. We must make it clear. Let’s look down and understand it.

myopia can generally be divided into two types: one is because the anterior and posterior length of the eye (also known as the anterior and posterior diameter) exceeds the normal length of 24 mm. This myopia is called “true myopia”, also known as “axial myopia”. The other is caused by not paying attention to eye hygiene. Such as reading and writing for too long, reading and writing in places with too strong or too weak light, too close distance between eyes and books, walking or lying in bed or reading in a shaky carriage, and incorrect sitting posture when reading and writing, so that the ciliary muscle in the eyes, which is responsible for regulating, is often in a tense state of regulation.

in addition, the “lens” like a double convex mirror in the heel eye often protrudes forward to meet the needs. The ciliary muscle is like a wide band, which is often in a tight state. Over time, it will lose its original function; In other words, due to excessive tension regulation, ciliary muscle fatigue and even spasm, and finally reduce vision and become myopia. This kind of myopia is called “pseudomyopia” and “functional myopia” in medicine. At this time, although the anterior and posterior diameter invasion of the eyeball is normal, it is still impossible to see far away.

recovery methods of pseudomyopia

1. Drug recovery of pseudomyopia: drop the eye with eye drops to relax the internal muscles of the eye, so as to restore the normal motor regulation function of the eye.

2. Eye training to restore pseudomyopia: relax the internal muscles of the eye through regular eye movement.

and

experts warm tips: any eye disease needs to be found in time and treated as soon as possible to prevent damage to visual function and affect vision.

correction methods for true myopia

for teenagers, wearing glasses is the best way to correct true myopia and prevent myopia from deepening.

and

doctors said that the principle of matching glasses is to select the lens with the lowest degree to enable the patient to obtain normal vision. When fitting glasses, be sure to get mydriatic optometry from ophthalmologists and optometrists. Don’t borrow other people’s glasses or buy a pair of ready-made glasses to wear.

and

children should pay attention to eye hygiene while wearing glasses, especially to avoid “two long and one short” and “two more and one less” (i.e. long study time every day, long continuous eye use time, short sleep time, more homework, more exams and less extracurricular activities). Before going to bed, it’s best to stick to eye drops with the effect of “relaxing ciliary muscle”, which can prevent the deepening of myopia.
