New eye exercises can curb the growth of myopia

Abstract: in the whole human body, the meridian system is similar to the blood circulation system and is also distributed throughout the body. If there is an obstacle in a certain part, disease will occur. Eye manipulation and acupoint massage play a role in removing obstacles, dredging meridians and collaterals, and is conducive to strengthening blood circulation. It is really necessary for the relevant national departments of

to organize ophthalmologists to conduct a series of long-term scientific research and observation on eye exercises, and come up with practical evidence to prove the effectiveness of eye exercises, which is more convincing.

“keep your eyes closed, gently rub and squeeze the end of the bridge of the nose between your eyes with your right thumb and index finger…” this is a classic action of “squeezing the eye points” when primary and secondary school students used to do eye exercises. Nowadays, many adults, even some people in their 50s, can recall their youth from this action.

however, this classic action will disappear from eye exercises. Starting from the new school year in September this year, primary and secondary schools in Beijing will use the revised new version of eye exercises, which also declares that the old version of eye exercises, which has been used for 36 years, will completely withdraw from the historical stage. “The old version of

“is 5 sections and 5 minutes. The new version is still 5 sections and 5 minutes, but two sections have been removed, two sections have been added, two sections have been maintained and one section has been modified.” Dr. Qiu Lixin, deputy chief physician of the eye center of Tongren Hospital, who participated in the revision of eye exercises, told the Beijing Science and Technology Daily that “the reason for removing the ‘squeezing and pressing the eye point’ is that when doing this action, the hand is too close to the eyeball. After class, many students’ hands are not very clean and stained with a lot of bacteria, which is easy to pollute the eyeball.” Another action to remove

and

is “dry washing your face”, that is, rubbing your hands back and forth across your face. Qiu Lixin said that the original function of this movement was to relax the face, and there was no specific massage for acupoints; At the time of revision, experts felt that it was of little health significance to the eyes themselves, so they removed it. The new version of

has added “pressing the head Du Mai acupoint” and “rubbing the earlobe eye acupoint and toe grasping”. Qiu Lixin said, “pressing the Du meridian point on the head” is to massage the Du meridian point from the middle of the hairline to the back of the head. Both actions are to keep the blood flow of the whole body and eyes unobstructed. “The revised section is’ press and rub the temple and scrape the eye socket round ‘, which has been changed to’ press and rub the temple and scrape the upper eye socket ‘. Because there are no acupoints in the lower eye socket, it is of little significance.” The purpose of

and

is to curb the rapid growth of students’ poor eyesight.

first proposed eye exercises, not in the education or health departments. It was first created by Liu Shiming, director of the physical education teaching and Research Department of Beijing Medical College (now the medical department of Peking University), in 1963. Because he had eye diseases, Liu Shiming often did some actions to alleviate them. After long-term exploration, he gradually created eye health exercises.

Just then, the Beijing Municipal Bureau of education conducted a vision survey in primary and secondary schools in the city, and the results were not optimistic. The doctor of Beijing health and epidemic prevention station and the person in charge of the Education Bureau learned that Liu Shiming had created a set of eye exercises, so they organized people to study and discuss, and finally unified into a set of 8-section eye exercises, with not only written instructions, but also acupoint diagrams. In the same year, this set of eye exercises began to be tried in Jingshan School, beimencang primary school and other schools.

in 1972, in order to make eye exercises easier to master, ophthalmologists simplified it, finally simplified 8 sections into 5 sections, and made some changes. In 1982, this set of eye exercises was popularized to the whole country by ten ministries and commissions such as the Ministry of education, and continues to this day.

the explanation given by the Beijing CDC for the revision of eye exercises is “to curb the rapid growth of students’ poor eyesight”.

the information provided by the center shows that at present, the poor eyesight rate of primary and secondary school students in Beijing is as high as 53.98%. “When the old version of eye exercises was implemented, teenagers’ nutrition was generally poor, which affected their eyesight. Now, teenagers’ physique has changed, and the causes of myopia are different from those in the past, such as obesity, excessive sweets, partial eclipse, increased learning burden, etc. under this situation, we have made targeted amendments.” Qiu Lixin said. Qiu Lixin of

and

also told reporters that although the new version has the participation of Chinese and Western ophthalmologists, it is still based on the theory of traditional Chinese medicine. By massaging some acupoints, the Qi and blood of the whole body, especially the eyes, can be unblocked, alleviate eye fatigue, improve vision and prevent near vision.

in order to make the new version more scientific, the Beijing Municipal Commission of education, the Beijing Municipal Bureau of health and the Beijing CDC hired researcher Tang Youzhi, honorary president of the Chinese Academy of traditional Chinese medicine and honorary president of the eye hospital affiliated to the Chinese Academy of traditional Chinese Medicine, Professor Guo Jingqiu, a well-known expert in pediatric ophthalmology of the First Affiliated Hospital of Peking University, and Qiu Lixin, an eye center of Tongren Hospital, participated in the revision; From May to July this year, 300 students of different ages in Shijingshan District were organized to conduct a comparative test between the old and new versions before and after eye exercises. It was found that there were positive changes in naked eye vision, eye fatigue work index, eye blood flow velocity, eye blood flow resistance index and other indicators.

from the perspective of Western medicine, doing eye exercises has no substantive role in the prevention and treatment of myopia.

nevertheless, so far, eye exercises have not done a real double-blind comparative test. Therefore, its conclusion that it is conducive to the prevention of near vision has been questioned. The most powerful basis for the skeptics is that “China is the only country in the world to implement eye exercises in primary and secondary schools, but the myopia rate of teenagers has been on the rise, ranking second in the world.

“I have been engaged in children’s vision correction for so many years. I haven’t heard that anyone who has done this set of exercises is not short-sighted. There are still a lot of children here, even though they can do eye exercises at school.” Wang lejin, deputy chief physician of the eye center of Peking University, simply expressed his attitude. Another ophthalmologist of the center also said that from the perspective of Western medicine, the cause of myopia is that the axial length of the eyeball becomes longer, and doing eye exercises can not prevent the change of the axial length of the eyeball. Therefore, it has no substantive role in the prevention and treatment of myopia.

“myopia is nodal muscle spasm. The nodal muscle is in the eyeball. It only massages the outer skin. What’s wrongWhat’s the use? ” Wang lejin said, “if you want others to recognize the effect, you must do formal scientific experiments with scale, long time and scientific procedures.”

however, Qiu Lixin still believes that there are many reasons for myopia, especially excessive eye use. We can’t regard the high rate of children’s myopia as evidence of the ineffectiveness of eye exercises.

“myopia prevention is a comprehensive means. Eye exercises are only one of the measures. If other factors leading to myopia cannot be well controlled, it is impossible to prevent myopia only by doing eye exercises.” However, Qiu Lixin also feels that it is really necessary for relevant state departments to organize ophthalmologists to conduct a series of long-term scientific research and observation on eye exercises, and come up with practical evidence to prove the effectiveness of eye exercises. Only in this way can they be more convincing.
