Is it best for children to correct their eyesight or wear glasses?

Abstract: there is a kind of monocular amblyopia, which is innate. Children can’t detect it and it’s often difficult to be found. It’s usually found only in the eye survey. Children can participate in the eye screening or survey organized by kindergartens. Once they find poor vision, they go to the hospital. Screening is very important to find children’s eye problems.

myopia is the culprit of low vision?

in the family doctor’s online ophthalmology channel Advisory Post, many parents put forward that “children play iPad every day, their eyesight decreases. Will they have myopia?” To this end, most parents mistakenly think that their children have low vision. Long-term use of electronic products is easy to cause eye fatigue and myopia, but low vision is mainly due to amblyopia. For example, the refractive errors of the two eyes are different. In fact, there are many reasons for low vision. Parents should first take their children to the hospital for eye examination to find out the reasons. The common reasons for low vision are hyperopia, astigmatism, myopia, and some even have strabismus. If their eyesight is still not normal with glasses, there may be amblyopia.

and

don’t forget to screen children’s eye problems. The

and

survey found that 62.38% of children like to squint and rub their eyes in early myopia, and 50% of children are prone to eye fatigue. So, what symptoms do children have? Should parents take their children to the hospital for examination? If the child has some abnormal behaviors, special attention should be paid, such as squinting at TV, not leaning forward when watching TV, and astigmatism, the child will tilt his head, which are signs of poor vision.

in addition, there is a kind of monocular amblyopia, which is innate. Children can’t detect it and it’s often difficult to be found. It’s usually found only in the eye census. Children can participate in the eye screening or census organized by kindergartens. Once they find poor eyesight, they go to the hospital. Screening is very important to find children’s eye problems.

children’s glasses need to be replaced frequently.

in addition, the survey shows that up to 79.81% of parents say that after children wear myopia glasses, they are unwilling to let children wear them all the time. Wearing glasses is mainly to prevent amblyopia. The eyes will change continuously with the development of children, and the diopter will drift, The child’s eyeball is a process of hyperopia emmetropia myopia from birth. The degree changes every year, no more than one year or half a year to one year. The doctor will do optometry during the child’s reexamination. He will change the lens or glasses according to the change of the degree at that time and adjust it according to the development of the eyeball.

and

children wear frame glasses to correct their vision. The

and

survey found that 34.56% of children have different degrees of myopia. Then, how old is the best age for children to correct myopia? Generally speaking, adults have normal vision after wearing glasses. If they don’t want to wear glasses, they can make a laser or put an intraocular lens in their eyes, and their vision can be corrected.

and

but these measures are not suitable for children. Children are at the stage of development, their eye size is still changing, and their plasticity is very strong. If they intervene too early before the degree is stable, there will be residual degrees. For example, the child’s degree this year is 200 degrees, and next year may be 250 degrees; If it is hyperopia, it is 300 degrees this year and may reach 250 degrees next year. Before the degree is not stable, children mainly use frame glasses. In order to control myopia, some children with special circumstances wear OK glasses. If they wear frame glasses, their eyesight still can not reach normal, they can assist some eyesight training measures to correct their eyesight to a normal level.

playing electronic products with high hyperopia helps to restore vision.

puts forward five measures to protect children’s vision: first, we should avoid watching TV and reading at close range; More outdoor activities; Lighting with sufficient brightness; In terms of diet, we should eat more vegetables and fruits containing vitamins and not partial food; If reading and homework do not last for more than one hour, pay attention to interval rest. In addition, Professor Lin Xiaoming specially reminded: myopic children should not play video games. If they are highly hyperopia, they can play games appropriately, which will help their eyesight drift towards the front view direction quickly.
