Myopia, Chinese teenagers rank first in the world!

Abstract: more than 70% of teenagers’ myopia occurs in the stage of youth development. In addition to genetic factors, most children’s myopia is due to premature overuse of eyes, and a considerable part of it is the reason for long-term fascination with electronic products.

in China, 66.6% of children aged 0 ~ 6 have been exposed to electronic products since the age of 4, and play tablet computers or mobile phones for 1.5 to 2 hours every day. Using electronic products for a long time will cause damage to eyes. The problem of teenagers’ eye care has become an important issue that needs urgent attention in today’s family, school and society.

and

in the development of children’s myopia, the role of electronic products should not be underestimated. More than 70% of teenagers’ myopia occurs in the stage of youth development. In addition to genetic factors, most children’s myopia is due to premature overuse of eyes, and a considerable part of it is the reason for their long-term fascination with electronic products.

Why are electronic products easy to cause children’s myopia?

and

keep their eyes on the electronic screen for a long time, reduce the number of blinks, and show dry eye symptoms such as dry eyes, fatigue and foreign body sensation, resulting in the decline of visual quality.

and

playing with mobile phones or tablets for a long time will cause insufficient sleep. The peak of myopia is from 10 to 13 years old. If children in this age group lack sleep and lose the balance of sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve functions, it is also easy to cause the disorder of the regulation function of ciliary muscle (the main regulator of seeing things) and induce myopia.

and

look at the electronic screen for a long time. The light radiation of electronic products will inhibit the function of retinal photoreceptor cells, causing visual fatigue and vision loss.

and

can improve children’s myopia. On the one hand, we should reduce children’s dependence on electronic products; On the other hand, schools and parents need to actively understand and master the scientific methods of loving and protecting eyes, regularly check their eyesight in hospitals or professional eyesight health care institutions, and timely understand their children’s eyesight, so as to better guide teenagers on how to prevent myopia in their daily study and life.

and

children’s eyesight should not be delayed. Once the child is found to squint, blink and rub his eyes, please take the child to a professional eyesight examination immediately. If the child has myopia, please go to a professional vision care institution in time to wear glasses and correct them in time. Pay attention to scientific eye use and prevention.
