Parents’ wrong ideas lead to the increase of children’s myopia. Were you shot?

Abstract: if myopia patients do not wear glasses reasonably, they are prone to visual fatigue and affect their learning; In order to make the vision clearer, patients are often forced to squint. The upper and lower eyelids compress the eyeball for a long time, which will lengthen the anterior and posterior diameter of the eyeball and increase the degree of myopia.

error 1: the person who should wear glasses does not wear glasses

many parents are unwilling to wear glasses for myopic children too early. They think that wearing glasses will deepen the degree of myopia. Once they wear glasses, they can no longer take them off. If they can’t wear them, they should try not to wear them.

error 2: people who shouldn’t wear glasses wear glasses.

a 3-year-old child checked his eyesight in the kindergarten. The teacher found that his eyesight was only 0.6, so he informed his parents. After checking in the hospital, he found that the child had 200 degree hyperopia, and the parents decided to equip the child with a pair of 200 degree hyperopia glasses. Comments on

and

: after birth, the eyeball will grow proportionally with various organs of the body. At birth, children are hyperopia. With the increase of age, the ocular axis gradually lengthened, and the refractive state gradually developed towards emmetropia. Unfortunately, most parents do not understand this knowledge and blindly match glasses to children with normal vision. It’s a normal eye, but I wear a telephoto lens.

error 3: when I was short-sighted, I thought of preventing

and

. I often met such a situation in the clinic. Many parents complained to the doctor that their children’s eyesight has always been very good. Why did they suddenly become short-sighted?

comments: myopia does not happen “suddenly” overnight. The reason why parents are aware of their children’s myopia is mainly because most parents do not regularly take their children to the hospital for eye examination, so that they can’t find their children’s vision problems early.

and

errors 4. It is easy to match the glasses diagram. For optometry, “gross estimation”,

and

, myopia glasses should be shallow and hyperopia glasses should be deep; Computer optometry is fast and accurate, and manual optometry can be saved; Optometry and glasses matching is a trivial matter. Why bother to go to the hospital or regular glasses shop; There is a slight error in optometry. It doesn’t matter.

and

comments: These are the wrong concept of optometry and glasses. Misled by these ideas, many people wear inappropriate glasses, which is not only prone to visual fatigue, but also accelerate the deepening and development of myopia.
