Mistakenly treat amblyopia as myopia and miss the best treatment time

Abstract: it is not uncommon to mistakenly treat amblyopia as myopia. Myopia and amblyopia are very similar. There are many reasons for amblyopia, such as strabismus, long-term unclear vision, large vision gap between the two eyes, etc. it is mostly seen in young children and preschool children. Because parents do not understand amblyopia, many children miss the best treatment period.

amblyopia or myopia

do more harm to amblyopia than myopia. Because children with myopia can see the distance more vaguely, but see the near more clearly. Visual cells and nerves can be stimulated by external images without recession. After wearing glasses, most corrected vision can return to normal, and vision correction is not limited by age. Children with amblyopia have slow and disordered visual function, often accompanied by strabismus and high refractive error. Because the visual cells and nerves of the affected eyes can not be accurately stimulated by external objects for a long time, their visual function will gradually decline. Therefore, parents should not take their children’s amblyopia lightly.

② cover therapy

③ training treatment of amblyopia comprehensive therapeutic instrument includes: Haidinger light brush therapy (light brush), red filter therapy (red flash), visual physiological stimulation therapy (grating) Afterimage hyperopia therapy (afterimage)

④ self regulatory disc therapy (spatial frequency hyperopia stimulation training)

⑤ family fine eyesight work (such as bead piercing and perforation)

⑥ suppression therapy (Optics and drugs)

⑦ drug therapy

⑧ He Ne (HN) laser amblyopia therapy: (it can improve vision faster and more effectively, especially for the treatment of refractory and older amblyopia; one treatment course is 20 days (once a day); the two treatment courses should be separated by half a year.)
