Juvenile myopia is not terrible, but only when the degree is deepened

Abstract: glasses are worn and taken off. Some teenagers regard wearing glasses as a burden and even feel embarrassed for fear of being laughed at. Therefore, they sometimes wear them, sometimes do not wear them, or wear them in class and not after class. As a result, the eyes are often in an unstable adjustment state. Over time, the degree of myopia has not become shallow, but deepened day by day.

in fact, there are many reasons why myopia patients deepen their degree after wearing glasses:

(1) after wearing glasses, they still don’t pay attention to visual hygiene, they are still close when writing or reading, the lighting light is strong and weak, the learning time is too long, and even lie down to read. Watch while walking, watch TV closely, and play video games for a long time. Over time, the ciliary muscle is over regulated, and the degree of myopia is bound to deepen.

(2) is not suitable for myopia. There are some parents of myopia students who provide glasses for their children. There is only one condition, that is, it is cheap. The cheaper the better, they can only buy glasses at the glasses wholesale market or online. Some of these glasses do not go through the formal optometry process at all. Most of them are measured by computer optometry and manual inserting, The processed glasses do not meet the national standards. Imagine that some students don’t increase the degree of wearing such glasses!

(3) glasses are worn and removed from time to time. Some teenagers regard wearing glasses as a burden and even feel embarrassed for fear of being laughed at. Therefore, they sometimes wear them, sometimes do not wear them, or do not wear them in class or after class. As a result, their eyes are often in an unstable state of adjustment. Over time, the degree of myopia has not become shallow, but deepened day by day.

and

(4) are related to family genetics. Clinically, they are called pathological myopia, and the degree will deepen faster.

according to the latest research report of the World Health Organization, there are about 1.4 billion myopia patients in the world; In 2020, this number is expected to reach 2.5 billion. Among this number, the number of myopia patients in China has reached 600 million. Myopia patients account for almost half of the total population, and the “hardest hit areas” are teenagers. After people find themselves short-sighted, they often feel that since they are already short-sighted, they must wear glasses for a lifetime and “accept their fate”. In fact, myopia is not a lifetime thing.

and

in recent years, more and more people are inseparable from computers and mobile phones, and the popularity of such mobile terminal electronic products is becoming younger and younger. Holding the “screen” over the weekend has become a common state for teenagers. Their eyesight is under greater pressure than before, but they have not received sufficient attention and care. Gradually, their eyesight begins to decline and wear glasses, But myopia at this time is only pseudomyopia. Pseudomyopia refers to the fact that the ciliary muscle is often in a contracting state due to the long-term inappropriate reading, writing or insufficient lighting of school-age children or adolescents, and the convex lens is not easy to relax. At this time, the distant parallel light enters the eye again. After the strong bending of the convex lens, its focus will no longer fall on the retina, but in front of the retina, Caused by blurred vision, but the myopia is still in a reversible state at this time, as long as the visual load is reduced; Develop good eye habits and correct posture; Improve the visual environment and maintain the appropriate brightness and contrast in the reading environment; Carrying out physical exercise, increasing outdoor activities and supplementing some foods conducive to vision, such as carrots and pig liver, can play a role in reversing and let children get rid of the pain of pseudomyopia.
