Is poor eyesight of young children myopia?

Abstract: myopia, a common ophthalmic disease in modern society, leads people to treat poor vision with myopia in cognition. Ophthalmologists point out that poor eyesight and myopia are two different things., The development of vision plays an important role in one’s life. About 80-90% of the learning in one’s life comes from visual learning. Through the transmission and interpretation of a series of visual messages, we can understand a lot of things., Myopia, a common ophthalmic disease in modern society, leads people to treat poor eyesight as myopia. Ophthalmologists point out that poor eyesight and myopia are two different things., The development of visual acuity begins from the fetus in the mother. The fetus develops pupillary reflex at about 31 weeks, but the eyelids are still closed at this time. There is no blink reflex until a few days after birth. The newborn develops eye fixation at about three months old; At the age of six months, visual stereopsis gradually develops with the increasing coordination of the two eyes. The development of visual acuity, like the development of the nervous system, is step by step, step by step. Only when their own constitution and external stimuli cooperate with each other, can there be the so-called normal visual acuity., The development of visual acuity gradually develops with age. The visual acuity of newborns is only about 0.0, that of 1-3 years old is about 0.6, and that of 6 years old is close to that of normal adults, about 0.8 to 1.0. At this time, most children have completed the process of emmetropia, and only a few children show myopia or other refractive errors., Many people mistakenly think that poor eyesight is myopia. When they see a child’s poor eyesight, they think whether there is myopia or astigmatism. In the clinic, they often encounter parents who think that a few tenths of vision must represent myopia. In fact, there are many reasons for poor eyesight, such as amblyopia and strabismus. Ametropia (including myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism) is only one of many reasons, The two are not entirely related., Of course, for preschool children, the main cause of poor vision is ametropia, but for some specific children, we still need to pay attention to whether there are some non ametropia factors that cause poor vision. In other words, poor vision is not completely solved by a pair of glasses., The development of

vision plays an important role in people’s life. About 80-90% of the learning in life comes from visual learning. Through the transmission and interpretation of a series of visual messages, we can understand a lot of things.

myopia, a common ophthalmic disease in modern society, leads people to treat poor eyesight as myopia. Ophthalmologists point out that poor vision and myopia are two different things. The development of

and

visual acuity has begun since the fetus developed in the mother. The fetus developed pupillary reflex at about 31 weeks, but the eyelids were still closed at this time. There was no blink reflex until a few days after birth. The newborn developed eye fixation at about three months old; At the age of six months, with the increasing coordination of the two eyes, the visual stereopsis gradually develops. The development of visual acuity is like the development of the nervous system, step by step, step by step. Only when their own constitution and external stimuli cooperate with each other can there be the so-called normal visual acuity.

visual acuity develops gradually with age. The visual acuity of newborns is only about 0.0, that of 1-3 years old is about 0.6, and that of 6 years old is close to that of normal adults, about 0.8-1.0. At this time, most children have completed the process of emmetropia, Only a few children show myopia or other refractive errors.

In fact, there are many reasons for poor eyesight, such as amblyopia, strabismus, etc, Ametropia (including myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism) is only one of many reasons, and the two are not completely related.

of course, for preschool children, the main reason for poor vision is ametropia, but for some specific children, we still need to pay attention to whether there are some non ametropic factors that cause poor vision. In other words, poor vision is not completely solved by a pair of glasses.
