Abstract: among children and adolescents in China, the incidence of myopia gradually increases with the increase of age and grade. It is very common that myopia deepens from 0.50D to 1.00d every year. Myopia has become the biggest killer endangering children’s physical and mental health.
eyes are the windows of the mind and the most important sensory organ of human beings. About 82% of the external information is obtained through the eyes. We often say “smart” is extended from the “hearing and seeing” in the book of changes and Xunzi in the pre-Qin period. It can be said that “seeing” is also related to people’s intellectual development.
however, among children and adolescents in China, the incidence of myopia gradually increases with the increase of age and grade. The phenomenon of myopia deepening from 0.50D to 1.00d every year is very common. Myopia has become the biggest killer endangering children’s physical and mental health.
so what is the key to children’s visual health? What are we going to do in the future?
1 children’s eye health content
children’s eye health problems mainly include: ametropia (myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, etc.); eye diseases (oblique amblyopia, neonatal retinopathy, etc.);
2 parents’ two misunderstandings about eye health
First, only when there is a problem with vision, do you go for vision examination and optometry.
starting from children’s eye health, parents should take their children for visual health examination regularly. Many children have reading problems and learning ability decline. The root cause may be the decline of vision.
second, many parents feel that their children can’t see clearly in class. They can just transfer them to the front row without wearing glasses, but this often makes their children miss the best opportunity for treatment.
. Therefore, an important point to improve children’s visual health is inspection and screening and the establishment of children’s visual files. Children with good vision can have good learning and a good life.
3 current situation of children’s eye health
we found that when parents match glasses for their children, they are more concerned about the selection of frames, but ignore the importance of lenses. In fact, parents should regularly take their children to have their eyesight checked 3-4 times a year. When fitting, they should pay attention to the selection of lenses to ensure that their children get good correction in their eyesight.
