Myopia is actually a disease. High myopia is more “deadly”!

Abstract: high myopia is prone to serious complications and endanger vision. The incidence of posterior scleral staphyloma is 77.1%! The incidence of subretinal neovascularization is 5% – 40%! There are also retinal atrophy and degeneration, bleeding and holes, retinal detachment, glaucoma, cataract and so on. It is the sixth leading blinding disease in China!

many people think that myopia is not a problem. It’s no big deal. There’s no need to make a fuss. However, if myopia develops to a high degree, if it is still “unscrupulous” at this time, it will be “a big deal”! Recently, the website of Spanish newspaper El Pais described the severity of myopia in China as “the biggest plague in Asia”.

myopia is a disease. High myopia can cause blindness.

according to statistics, among the nearly 450 million myopia people in China, more than 30 million are high myopia people with myopia degree above 600 degrees! High myopia is prone to serious complications, endangering vision, of which the incidence of posterior scleral staphyloma is 77.1%! The incidence of subretinal neovascularization is 5% – 40%! There are also retinal atrophy and degeneration, bleeding and holes, retinal detachment, glaucoma, cataract and so on. It is the sixth leading blinding disease in China!

and

in fact, the severity of myopia is far beyond most people’s imagination, especially high myopia!

· the probability of cataract in high myopia is twice that in mild myopia (25 to 300 degrees) or no myopia. The world of cataract is like this:

· the probability of glaucoma in high myopia is 3 times that in mild myopia and 4.2 to 7.6 times that in non myopia. The world of glaucoma is like this:

· the probability of retinal detachment in high myopia is 2.5 times that in mild myopia and 10 times that in non myopia. The world of retinal detachment is like this:

and

. Therefore, we must have a correct concept: no matter how many people wear glasses, myopia is still a physiological disorder like hard of hearing and amblyopia. Therefore, we should take the initiative to prevent and intervene and control the development of myopia, because it is not a vision problem, but a potential eye health problem.
