Abstract: myopia can be corrected with a pair of appropriate glasses, but if the degree of glasses exceeds the myopia of the eye itself, over correction will occur. Myopia overcorrection will bring a lot of pain and harm, which should be avoided as far as possible., When fitting glasses for children with myopia, optometrists should not only accurately correct the diopter, but also pay attention to their visual function. Choosing appropriate prescription for diopter correction can effectively slow down the rapid growth of their myopia, which not only reflects the excellent professional skills of optometrists, but also gives parents the hope that their children’s myopia can be controlled., Myopia can be corrected with a pair of appropriate glasses, but if the degree of glasses exceeds the myopia of the eye itself, over correction will occur. Myopia overcorrection will bring a lot of pain and harm, which should be avoided as far as possible., The main harm of myopia overcorrection: ① overcorrection causes eye discomfort. A suitable pair of myopia glasses can move the object image in front of the retina just behind the retina, so as to correct myopia and improve vision. However, over corrected myopia can move the object image in front of the retina to the back of the omentum, resulting in an artificial hyperopia state. At this time, what falls on the retina is only a blurred image. However, in our eyes, there is a complete regulation system. Relying on the contraction of ciliary muscle and the expansion of lens, we can move the object image behind the retina forward to the retina, which can still maintain good vision (of course, this regulation has a certain limit). However, if you over regulate for a long time, the ciliary muscles will be in a state of tension, contraction and congestion for a long time, and then regulatory spasm will occur, which will often make the eyes feel bloated, acid sleepy, fatigue and pain, and even lead to head distension, head tightness and headache. A few people will also have systemic symptoms such as inattention, memory decline, forgetfulness and insomnia, just like neurasthenia. Many children’s improper glasses also lead to a decline in academic performance., ② promote the development of myopia, long-term adjustment tension will lead to adjustment spasm. In addition, with long-term close eye use, both eyes are in a state of aggregation (both eyes move within a short time). Extraocular muscles have a certain compressive effect on the eyeball, which will increase the intraocular pressure. Over time, it will promote the expansion of eyeball wall and the extension of ocular axis, which will undoubtedly increase the degree of myopia. This is especially harmful to children and adolescents who are in the period of growth and development., “Because overcorrected myopia has so many hazards, some people call it a” toxic lens “., When

myopia children are matched with glasses, optometrists should not only accurately correct the diopter, but also pay more attention to their visual function. Choosing appropriate diopter correction prescriptions can effectively slow down the rapid growth of their myopia, which not only reflects the excellent professional skills of optometrists, but also gives parents the hope that their children’s myopia can be controlled.

myopia can be corrected with a pair of appropriate glasses, but if the degree of glasses exceeds the myopia of the eye itself, over correction will occur. Myopia overcorrection will bring a lot of pain and harm, which should be avoided as far as possible.

the main harm of myopia overcorrection

① overcorrection causes eye discomfort

a suitable myopia lens can move the object image in front of the retina just back onto the retina, so as to correct myopia and improve vision. However, over corrected myopia can move the object image in front of the retina to the back of the omentum, resulting in an artificial hyperopia state. At this time, what falls on the retina is only a blurred image. However, in our eyes, there is a complete regulation system. Relying on the contraction of ciliary muscle and the expansion of lens, we can move the object image behind the retina forward to the retina, which can still maintain good vision (of course, this regulation has a certain limit). However, if you over regulate for a long time, the ciliary muscles will be in a state of tension, contraction and congestion for a long time, and then regulatory spasm will occur, which will often make the eyes feel bloated, acid sleepy, fatigue and pain, and even lead to head distension, head tightness and headache. A few people will also have systemic symptoms such as inattention, memory decline, forgetfulness and insomnia, just like neurasthenia. Due to the inappropriate degree of glasses, many children also have a decline in academic performance.

② promote the development of myopia

long-term adjustment tension will cause adjustment spasm. In addition, with long-term close eye use, the eyes are in a state of aggregation for a long time (the eyes move in close time). The extraocular muscles have a certain pressing effect on the eyeball, which will increase the intraocular pressure. Over time, it will promote the expansion of the eyeball wall and the extension of the ocular axis, It will undoubtedly increase the degree of myopia. This is especially harmful to children and adolescents who are in the period of growth and development.

“because overcorrected myopia has so many hazards, some people call it” toxic lens “.

the main harm of myopia under correction

myopia under correction refers to wearing glasses with a lower degree than they should be, This will make the corrected vision of myopia people lower than normal (less than 1.0). In particular, children’s binocular visual function is not stable, so they must have clear vision and correct eye habits to maintain the stable development of their function. Wearing uncorrected myopia glasses will make children unable to get clear vision, so that their vision can not get the due development, and make them use less adjustment force and collection force than normal when looking close. In the long run, their eyes will be damaged The decline of visual function leads to problems such as visual fatigue and accelerated growth of myopia.

“take it for granted” — can glasses with under correction slow down the increase of myopia? In recent years, the

has been improving its cultural life level and the incidence rate of myopia has been increasing. It is estimated that myopia will affect 2.5 billion people by 2020. Myopia is listed by the World Health Organization as one of the five types of eye diseases required to be improved and eliminated in the “Vision 2020” action. A large number of survey data of

and

show that myopia is in a high prevalence state among school-age children, while juvenile myopia in China ranks second in the world. The most safe and reliable way to correct myopia is to wear appropriate corrective glasses in time. In the process of matching children’s glasses, parents often correct or under correct the degree (the degree of glasses is consistent with the facts or
