Misunderstanding of children’s glasses

Abstract: glasses need to go to the hospital for mydriasis examination. Many parents choose computer optometry glasses for their children because they are afraid that mydriasis will affect their children’s learning. This idea is wrong.

glasses do not do ophthalmic system examination.

and

children have poor eyesight. In order to save trouble, parents often take their children to the glasses shop on the street to match glasses after computer optometry. In addition to myopia and myopic astigmatism, some fundus diseases can also cause vision loss. Therefore, systematic ophthalmic examination should be carried out before optometry. Many children with visual impairment are found in pre optometry examination, including many children with amblyopia, strabismus, congenital cataract, glaucoma and fundus diseases. Some children find it only when they check their eyesight, but they miss the best time for treatment.

expensive glasses must be suitable for children.

many parents think that only expensive glasses are the best and suitable for children’s eye development when selecting lenses for their children. The most important prerequisite for choosing glasses is suitability. When children under the age of 10 are wearing glasses, they can choose a frame with soft edge and protective nose support. Over the age of 10, they can basically choose a full frame frame frame. Children should choose resin and hard glasses. Glass lenses are fragile and will cause damage to eyes. Resin lens requires accurate astigmatism axis position, accurate luminosity and no scratch on the lens. The prepared glasses must meet the quality inspection standards issued by the state, and the diopter error shall be within the range required by the standard.

wear “contact” eyes “do not deform”

some parents believe that once their children wear frame glasses, their children’s eyeballs will protrude and deform, affecting the beauty of their eyes, so they wear contact lenses for their children. The safety requirements of contact lenses are relatively high, and some unscientific use methods will cause serious damage to the cornea. Especially for younger children, they can’t wear contact lenses because they won’t be well maintained. It’s common to see cases of severe keratitis caused by wearing contact lenses in China. It should be said that there is no need for students to choose to wear contact lenses.

glasses do not need mydriasis.

glasses need to go to the hospital for mydriasis examination. Many parents choose computer optometry glasses for their children because they are afraid that mydriasis will affect their children’s learning. This idea is wrong. Clinically, young children must have mydriatic optometry, so as to reflect the child’s real vision. Without mydriatic optometry, only relying on the results of computer monitoring with glasses will do harm to the child’s eyes: first, the child’s false myopia often “deceives the computer” to cause false examination results. Secondly, children’s hyperopia and high astigmatism will also make the computer inspection “inadequate”. Domestic hospitals have different ages for the use of atropine long-acting mydriasis. Generally, children over the age of 7 do not have strabismus, amblyopia and hyperopia. They can choose fast mydriasis, and the pupils can return to normal after 6 ~ 8 hours.
