How to prevent children’s pseudomyopia from becoming true myopia

Abstract: due to the strong adjustment of adolescents, pseudomyopia is easy to occur, but it can also occur in a few adults engaged in near work. With the increase of age, the regulatory response time is gradually prolonged. The elderly with emmetropia may also have temporary myopia when they suddenly look far after looking close. Some people also call it physiological pseudomyopia., There are differences between pseudomyopia and true myopia. However, if pseudomyopia is not treated in time, it will lead to true myopia. Therefore, in daily life and study, parents should actively prevent the occurrence of children’s pseudomyopia., What is pseudomyopia? Because the eyes work closely for a long time, the muscles in the ciliary body continue to contract spasmodically, the ciliary ring becomes smaller, the lens retracts and becomes convex depending on its own elasticity, and the refractive power increases. If the muscles in the ciliary body cannot be relaxed in time, the convex crystal cannot return to the normal state, which leads to pseudomyopia., The characteristics of pseudomyopia in children: 1. Far vision is lower than near vision., 2. Vision instability: because pseudomyopia is caused by abnormal adjustment response, when the adjustment changes from near to far, the adjustment is in the process of gradual relaxation, and the vision can be improved, and then it can be bad when looking close., 3. The current treatments are effective, and the visual acuity can be reduced after stopping the treatment., 4. Because teenagers have strong adjustment, they are prone to pseudomyopia, but a few adults engaged in near work can also occur. With the increase of age, the regulatory response time is gradually prolonged. The elderly with emmetropia may also have temporary myopia when they suddenly look far after looking close. Some people also call it physiological pseudomyopia.,

pseudomyopia and true myopia are different, but if pseudomyopia is not treated in time, it will lead to true myopia. Therefore, in daily life and study, parents should actively prevent the occurrence of children’s pseudomyopia.

what is pseudomyopia

because the eyes work close for a long time, the muscles in the ciliary body continue to contract spasmodically, the ciliary ring becomes smaller, the lens retracts and becomes convex depending on its own elasticity, and the refractive power increases. If the muscles in the ciliary body cannot be relaxed in time, the convex lens cannot return to the normal state, This causes pseudomyopia.

characteristics of pseudomyopia in children

1. Far vision is lower than near vision.

2. Vision instability: because pseudomyopia is caused by abnormal adjustment response, when the adjustment is in the process of gradually relaxing from near to far, the vision can be improved, and then it can be bad when looking close.

3. It is effective for all kinds of treatments currently used, and the visual acuity can decline after stopping treatment.

4. Due to the strong adjustment of teenagers, they are prone to pseudomyopia, but a few adults engaged in near work can also occur. With the increase of age, the regulatory response time is gradually prolonged. The elderly with emmetropia may also have temporary myopia when they suddenly look far after looking close. Some people also call it physiological pseudomyopia.

the harm of pseudomyopia in children

1. The age of onset tends to decrease year by year.

2. The onset time is short.

3. Vision drops rapidly.

prevention of pseudomyopia in children

1. We must cultivate children’s good health habits from childhood. Train them to write and read correctly. Don’t lie on the table or twist your body. Books and eyes should be kept one meter. School desks and chairs should be suitable for students.

2. Reading time should not be too long. Ensure a 10 minute break between classes to reduce eyesight fatigue. Blink more to reduce dry eye symptoms. Don’t write too long. Do eye exercises carefully.

3. There should be appropriate light for writing and reading, and the light should be irradiated from the left. Don’t read or write in a dark place to reduce the burden on students.

4. Actively carry out physical exercise to ensure that students have one hour of physical activities every day. Teach students not to write too small or too dense, and not to write obliquely or cursive.

5. When watching TV, pay attention to that the height of the TV should be level with the line of sight; The distance between the eye and the fluorescent screen shall not be less than 5 times of the diagonal length of the fluorescent screen; When watching TV, a small electric light should be turned on indoors, which is conducive to protecting eyesight; Keep watching TV for 1 ~ 1. After 5 hours, you should have a short rest, overlooking or doing eye exercises.

6. You should eat more foods rich in vitamin A, all kinds of vegetables and animal liver and egg yolk. Myopia should be prevented and treated in different grades, and early and small. Actively correct and prevent deepening development.

7. If myopia has occurred, go to the hospital for optometry and wear appropriate glasses. Pseudomyopia can be corrected by far fog vision, massage or crystal gymnastics, physical therapy and drugs.
