Myopia has become a “national disease”, and teenagers are a high incidence group

Abstract: there are two main factors causing high incidence of myopia in adolescents. Internal cause refers to that myopia is affected by genetic factors. If the parents of teenagers are highly myopic, the probability of genetic myopia will be greatly improved. The external cause is mainly the change of eye habit. The time of close eye use is too long and the time of outdoor activities is seriously insufficient., At present, the problem of ametropia among adolescents in China is becoming increasingly prominent, and the rate of poor vision remains high, which has seriously affected the healthy development of adolescents in China. Xiamen Kehong ophthalmologists said that the situation of myopia in China is worrying, especially among teenagers., The latest statistics show that the number of myopia in China is not only as high as 450 million, but also increasing year by year, which has become a “national disease” that can not be ignored. Among them, the situation of juvenile myopia is particularly worrying: the poor visual acuity rates of primary school students aged 7 ~ 12, junior middle school students aged 13 ~ 15, senior high school students aged 16 ~ 18 and college students aged 19 ~ 22 are 45.71%, 74.36%, 83.28% and 86.36% respectively, and gradually develop to a younger age., Ophthalmologists said that popularizing scientific eye knowledge, preventing ametropia and improving eye health awareness have once again become a major focus of health education in China., Myopia affects one’s life, and prevention and control should not be careless. According to the analysis of Kehong ophthalmologists, there are mainly internal and external factors causing high incidence of myopia in adolescents. Internal cause refers to that myopia is affected by genetic factors. If the parents of teenagers are highly myopic, the probability of genetic myopia will be greatly improved. The external cause is mainly the change of eye habit. The time of close eye use is too long and the time of outdoor activities is seriously insufficient., What are the bad eye habits?, 1. Improper use of eyes: too long close eye use will lead to eye fatigue, and teenagers will unconsciously approach books., 2. Wrong eye posture: reading by car or walking will change the distance between eyes and books and increase the burden on eyes.,

at present, the problem of ametropia among adolescents in China has become increasingly prominent, and the rate of poor vision remains high, which has seriously affected the healthy development of adolescents in China. Xiamen Kehong ophthalmologists said that the situation of myopia in China is worrying, especially among teenagers. The latest statistics of

show that the number of myopia in China is not only as high as 450 million, but also increasing year by year, which has become a “national disease” that can not be ignored. Among them, the situation of juvenile myopia is particularly worrying: the poor visual acuity rates of primary school students aged 7 ~ 12, junior middle school students aged 13 ~ 15, senior high school students aged 16 ~ 18 and college students aged 19 ~ 22 are 45.71%, 74.36%, 83.28% and 86.36% respectively, and gradually develop to a younger age.

myopia affect the whole life. Prevention and control should not be careless. According to the analysis of Kehong ophthalmologists of

and

, there are mainly internal and external factors causing high incidence of myopia in adolescents. Internal cause refers to that myopia is affected by genetic factors. If the parents of teenagers are highly myopic, the probability of genetic myopia will be greatly improved. The external cause is mainly the change of eye habit. The time for close eye use is too long and the time for outdoor activities is seriously insufficient. What are the bad eye habits of

and

?

1. Improper eye use: too long a close eye use leads to eye fatigue, and teenagers will unconsciously approach books.

2. Wrong eye posture: reading by car or walking will change the distance between eyes and books and increase the burden on eyes.

3. Insufficient eye rest: continuous and close eye use for a long time, which is too heavy to ease.

4. Influence of external factors: artificial light sources such as electronic product screens emit light, which aggravates eye fatigue. Long term use of electronic products will lead to the occurrence and development of myopia.

to sum up, the main reason for high myopia among teenagers is improper eye use and insufficient eye protection.

how do teenagers protect their eyes?

1. Develop good eye habits and ensure eye rest time. The appropriate eye distance is 30-35cm. After continuous eye use for 40 minutes, let your eyes rest and look into the distance.

2. Pay attention to the eye environment and sitting posture. Avoid reading in a bumpy car, reading while walking and lying down. When reading, you should choose a suitable desk and chair and sit upright.

3. Ensure more than two hours of outdoor activities every day. On the one hand, receiving the stimulation of natural light can return the eyes to the natural state and prevent myopia. On the other hand, increasing outdoor activities also reduces the time of contacting electronic products.

4. Establish refractive development files. Make prediction in advance and conduct regular refractive examination every year to effectively monitor the occurrence and development of myopia. Once myopia occurs, you must go to a professional eye hospital to check the binocular visual function, wear glasses for correction in time, and cooperate with the recovery training of binocular visual function. You can also choose the corneal plastic lens myopia control technology to more effectively control the development of myopia.
