Parents’ three cognitive “misunderstandings” become children’s myopia and aggravate “accomplices”

Abstract: the body of teenagers is in the development stage, with more eyes and rapid changes in vision. It is recommended that parents take their children to a professional hospital for a comprehensive eye examination every six months. He said that the main causes of children’s myopia are congenital genetic factors and acquired environmental factors. Behind the increasingly serious phenomenon of

Teenagers’ myopia, the lack of parents’ knowledge of myopia prevention and treatment is also worrying. Experts say that every summer vacation, many parents anxiously ask him about the reasons for the sharp decline of their children’s eyesight. “Most parents do not understand the reasons for their children’s myopia, and they are at a loss about their children’s increasing glasses degrees year by year. Parents’ misunderstanding of their children’s myopia often becomes an accomplice to their children’s deepening myopia degrees”!

how to judge children’s myopia?

children unknowingly suffer from myopia, which makes parents unprepared. Experts listed various manifestations of children’s eye problems: “squint, squint and tilt your head to see things. Children reflect that the children next to them can see themselves, but they can’t see or see clearly, or their eyesight fluctuates, which proves that children have eye problems.” He introduced that myopia is the main visual problem of children, and children’s visual development is very important. Therefore, parents should pay close attention to their children’s subtle actions, so as to understand their children’s visual status.

teenagers are in the stage of physical development, with more eyes and rapid changes in vision. Director Wang Ping suggested that parents take their children to a professional hospital for a comprehensive eye examination every six months. He said that the main causes of children’s myopia are congenital genetic factors and acquired environmental factors. Progressive myopia caused by environmental factors is mainly due to close learning, too much working time and intensity, and too little time for outdoor activities.

are aimed at parents’ cognitive “blind spots”. Myopia prevention and treatment experts generally believe that to properly prevent and treat children’s myopia, we must first “treat” parents’ misunderstanding. Scientific and comprehensive prevention and treatment of myopia is urgent, and there are three biggest misunderstandings:

and

misunderstanding 1: myopia is not a big problem, Just go to the glasses shop to get glasses.

and

tips: only through the binocular visual function examination can we find the causes of children’s myopia. Even if it is the same 100 degree myopia, the binocular visual function examination results are different, and the prevention and treatment methods are different. For example, six children with 100 degree myopia have six different ways to match glasses and use glasses.

“optometry is definitely not a small thing! Many people wear inappropriate glasses, which can not correct their eyesight, but will hurt their eyes.” Director Wang Ping stressed that at present, the myopia diagnosis methods used in China are still generally in the primary stage of monocular simple optometry, which is especially insufficient for teenagers. Misunderstanding 2 of

and

: worry about the deepening degree of glasses and choose not to wear glasses.

and

tips: go to a regular hospital for optometry and glasses in time after determining that it is true myopia. Wearing glasses is not the culprit for the deepening degree of myopia, but inappropriate glasses! After finding that the child’s vision drops, he should go to a regular hospital for a comprehensive eye examination at the first time to determine whether the child is true or false myopia. Once it is determined that it is irreversible true myopia, he needs to wear glasses. Of course, there are many kinds of glasses, such as frame glasses, corneal shaping glasses and so on.

for children who have suffered from myopia, they need personalized scientific correction programs. As the leader of myopia prevention and treatment in Qingzhou Eye Hospital, Director Wang Ping explained in detail the key steps of comprehensive optometry in regular ophthalmic hospitals to parents: “we must be based on comprehensive comprehensive optometry such as binocular visual function, clarify eye axis length, corneal curvature, binocular visual function, eye position, pupil distance and dominant eye, find out the real causes of children’s myopia, and then” tailor “myopia prevention and treatment plan for children.”

   “Scientific optometry is the basis for formulating personalized myopia solutions for children’s different causes of myopia. Director Wang Ping introduced that children with pseudomyopia only need to relax and adjust; myopia caused by delayed adjustment needs visual function training to control the degree growth through corneal plastic surgery; for curvature myopia, it is recommended to wear rigid corneal contact lenses RGP and corneal contact lenses Shaping glasses or choose to wear aspheric frame glasses; Children with excessive adjustment or implicit inclination do not wear glasses when looking close; Due to insufficient collection function or external oblique concealment, you must wear glasses to see close. Misunderstanding 3 of

and

: it is normal for myopia to increase by 100 degrees every year during school age. There is no need to make a fuss. Tips of

and

: myopia is not equal to glasses. Myopia is an eye disease. If no treatment is taken, the degree of myopia of children will continue to rise, and even lead to complications such as retinal detachment.

if not properly prevented and treated, children’s myopia may accompany them for life. If left unchecked, myopia will evolve into high myopia of more than 600 degrees, resulting in diseases such as vitreous disease, cataract, glaucoma, macular disease, retinal detachment and so on. If not treated in time and reasonably, it can eventually lead to blindness.

high myopia is the beginning of a vicious circle. Director Wang Ping reminded parents and friends: “high myopia not only causes pathological changes in the eyes, but also can be inherited. If both parents are high myopia, the child’s disease probability can reach more than 90% Therefore, intermarriage is not suitable between high myopia.
