Abstract: parents can take their children to a regular eye hospital for a comprehensive eye examination during the summer vacation, have a correct and timely understanding of the child’s visual status, determine whether the child is short-sighted, whether there is an aggravation of myopia, whether the glasses currently worn are suitable, whether there are hidden dangers of eye diseases that have not been eliminated, and how to carry out eye health care in the next step. With the advent of the

summer vacation, many students take advantage of the holiday to relax, read books, surf the Internet and watch TV too much… Followed by the myopia problem of children’s vision decline. Nowadays, there are more and more “small glasses” for primary and secondary school students. According to statistics, the number of myopia population in China ranks first in the world. Among them, the proportion of primary school students wearing glasses is more than 50%, and that of middle school students is more than 80%. Ding Lifeng, an optometry expert of Henan Chengxiang optometry Technology Co., Ltd., reminded that summer vacation is a dangerous period of deepening myopia, and parents must pay attention to their children’s eye problems.

and

children’s myopia deepens 100 degrees during the summer vacation. The causes of myopia in

and

children can be divided into genetic factors and environmental factors. If one of the parents has myopia, the possibility of myopia of the child is higher than that of ordinary children. If both parents have high myopia, the possibility of myopia of the child is higher / based on genetic factors, the environmental factors that induce myopia will play a great role. For example, in recent years, the excessive use of electronic products poses a very prominent threat to teenagers’ visual health. “There is plenty of free time in summer. Many children watch TV and play mobile tablet games without restraint, and their eyes are busier than when they go to school. In addition, the weather is hot, and the time for outdoor activities is reduced accordingly, which makes it easy for children to cause myopia or deepen myopia in summer.”

summer vacation, don’t forget to take your children to check their eyesight.

myopia is not just adding a pair of glasses! Many parents are not aware of their children’s vision loss. Without attention and intervention, with the deepening of myopia, in addition to becoming high myopia, the incidence of other eye diseases will also increase significantly, such as retinal detachment, cataract and glaucoma. Blindness and low vision caused by complications of high myopia account for a considerable proportion.

parents can take their children to a regular eye hospital for a comprehensive eye examination during the summer vacation, have a correct and timely understanding of their children’s visual status, and determine whether their children are short-sighted, whether there is any aggravation of myopia, whether the glasses they currently wear are appropriate, and whether there are hidden dangers of eye diseases that have not been eliminated How to carry out eye care in the next step. Especially for children who often squint and squint when reading and watching TV, parents must pay more attention.

is the child true myopia or false myopia

many parents take it for granted that the child has decreased vision or uncomfortable eyes and feel it is unnecessary to wear glasses. Ding Lifeng said that parents should take their children to the hospital for examination as soon as possible. At present, the probability of pseudomyopia of school-age children is not high. Once children say they can’t see clearly, they are often true myopia. To determine whether the child is true myopia or false myopia, you need to go to the hospital to identify it and deal with it symptomatically. The method of

and

is to take the child for optometry, visual distance examination, corneal examination, ocular axis examination and vitreous examination.

experts remind that children’s bad eye habits should be corrected in time.

for myopia, in addition to taking scientific and necessary treatment methods, it is more important to develop good eye habits to prevent. No matter reading or using the computer, pay attention to the distance between your eyes and the book or computer. Your posture should be correct. You should rest for 10 minutes every 40 minutes. You can look out of the window to relax the ciliary muscles of your eyes and reduce eye fatigue.

and

modern urban children’s games are mostly indoor self entertainment, such as TV, personal toys, game consoles, computers, etc. especially after holidays, children often stay in front of computers and televisions. To this end, parents should encourage their children to change the way they play and do more outdoor activities. Because when children are outdoors, their eyes will automatically adjust the sight distance according to things at different distances, so that their ciliary muscles can be adjusted without fatigue. Therefore, children who often exercise outdoors are less likely to suffer from myopia than children who don’t go out often.
