If these five signals appear in high myopia, the eyes are dangerous

Abstract: high myopia itself will not cause blindness, but patients with high myopia have a higher risk of retinal detachment, glaucoma, maculopathy, cataract, posterior scleral staphyloma and other diseases, which may cause blindness.

will high myopia (myopia above 600 degrees) lead to blindness? Let’s first look at the meaning of blindness.

blindness in the narrow sense: it refers to the loss of vision to no light perception.

blindness in the broad sense: both eyes lose the ability to distinguish the surrounding environment.

the answer is: high myopia may lead to blindness.

Why is high myopia blind?

high myopia itself will not cause blindness, but patients with high myopia have a higher risk of retinal detachment, glaucoma, maculopathy, cataract, posterior scleral staphyloma and other diseases, which may cause blindness.

  1、 Retinal detachment

(1) due to scleral expansion and retinal degeneration, the rate of net detachment in patients with high myopia is 7 to 8 times higher than that in normal people!

(2) fortunately, retinal detachment can be saved and can be treated by laser and surgery.

(3) If retinal detachment is found late and not treated in time, it will also lead to permanent blindness.

(4) symptoms of net detachment: the mosquito disease is aggravated, the eyes seem to be blocked by clouds, there is a sense of flash when the eyes move, the vision is deformed, and the vision drops suddenly.

Retinal detachment is related to overuse of the eyes. Parents with high myopia should not spend all night playing with electronic products.

  2、 Glaucoma

(1) the risk of glaucoma in myopia is 2 ~ 4 times higher than that in non myopia

(2) The most close relatives of high myopia are open-angle glaucoma. The most terrible thing is that patients with open-angle glaucoma usually have no symptoms in the early stage and their eyes are not painful or itchy. Many people find it only during routine physical examination, which is already in the middle and late stage. Even one day, they cover one eye and find that the other eye is blind, and the treatment effect of late glaucoma is poor.

(3) early detection, active treatment and adjustment of mentality can also be controlled.

is highly myopic and is afraid of blindness. It can check the fundus, intraocular pressure and visual field every year or half a year, especially with diabetes, hypertension, low blood pressure, and vascular diseases. It is necessary to check regularly,

,

3, and cataract

and

. (1) in high myopia, the permeability of lens capsule is reduced due to the extension of ocular axis, degenerative lesions of fundus and abnormal intraocular nutrition metabolism, resulting in cataract.

Although high myopia has a high risk of these diseases, it does not mean that it will be. The key is to find out early! Early discovery! Early discovery! Therefore, it is very important to have regular eye physical examination for high myopia. The following problems in high myopia need to be examined:

1. The eyes are swollen and dry

2. The eyesight decreases sharply

3. The astigmatism increases sharply

4. Foggy vision and visual object deformation

5 All kinds of eye pain and even dizziness (forehead swelling and migraine) should be checked in time.

therefore, high myopia must eat less spicy food, eat less sweets and check regularly.
