Reminder: a misunderstanding, two extremes and three mistakes in the prevention and treatment of myopia!

Abstract: all kinds of medical methods and advertisements for myopia treatment are also publicized, and even mislead parents who lack professional knowledge and are anxious. Once moderate myopia is formed, structural changes take place in the eyes, and the eye axis inside the eyeball becomes longer.

is a misunderstanding: society, families and schools pay more attention to students’ academic performance, while ignoring children’s physical health, especially vision health. In fact, it is not worth the loss to exchange high scores at the cost of good health. Now many parents see their children’s myopia and don’t care; But seeing that the child’s score has changed from 100 to 98, he is anxious to get angry. This is putting the cart before the horse. There are two extreme concepts of

and

: one extreme concept is that children’s myopia can’t be cured at all. They can only wear glasses. As a result, they wear glasses every year and their myopia deepens every year. Children are nearsighted. Wearing glasses is the first choice for doctors and parents. This attitude towards nearsightedness is irresponsible and negative.

and

have a misunderstanding, two extreme ideas and three wrong understandings in the prevention and treatment of myopia. Another extreme concept of

and

is that parents hope that myopia can be cured as soon as it is cured, how many days they want to reduce, or think that medicine or surgery can be used to solve the problem of myopia.

and

all kinds of medical methods and advertisements for myopia treatment are also publicized, and even mislead parents who lack professional knowledge and are anxious. Once moderate myopia is formed, structural changes take place in the eyes, and the eye axis inside the eyeball becomes longer. The commercial advertising, no matter whether it is in the packaging guidance of goodwill or not, needs the majority of consumers to have a clear understanding, choose the correct method, take prevention, improvement and recovery as the correct guiding ideology, and do not pursue the unrealistic goal of complete reversal and cure. The three misconceptions of

and

are:

and

(1) Take vision correction as the treatment of myopia: for example, the preparation of myopia glasses, contact lenses, multifocal glasses, plastic lenses and laser corneal cutting can immediately improve vision to 1.0, but this is vision correction, which can not prevent and control the occurrence and development of myopia. The internal problems of myopia have not been improved at all, but have been covered up.

(2) Treat the prevention and treatment of myopia as a medical problem, such as dropping mydriatic potions, frequent acupuncture and moxibustion treatment and the use of medical commodities like these. In fact, the prevention and treatment of myopia is a problem of changing cognition and behavior, a problem of changing visual distance, and a problem of vision in an excessively close environment.

(3) Take bad commercial products as a means to treat myopia: many commodities are for the purpose of making profits, and there is no real effect at all. The hype of advertising is more true than the truth. Advertising language can never be used as a scientific basis to judge whether it is good or bad.

Laser treatment of myopia, which originated from Britain and America, is to cut a concave surface of the healthy cornea of the human eye to replace the degree of myopia glasses, so as to achieve the purpose of replacing glasses. It is only applied to the needs of special people to correct their eyesight. This method does not cure myopia. The inner part of the eye is still the structure of myopia, but destroys the healthy cornea itself, It should not be widely promoted.

and

corneal shaping contact lenses, which press on the eyeball, used to be called “OK” lenses. With the help of external force, the small round surface of the lens is squeezed to temporarily flatten the spherical surface of the cornea, so as to improve the visual acuity in a short period of time. They are still visual correction, not therapeutic. Because this lens constantly leads to corneal infection and medical accidents, it was despised by the public, but now it has changed its name and continues to be promoted.

and

no matter how they are promoted under the cloak of Chinese and Western medicine, or through various scientific concepts and under the banner of ophthalmologists, as long as they are carefully identified with their eyes, see whether they have solved the problem of excessive myopia, and see with their own eyes whether they have used the product to control the deepening of myopia or the recovery of vision, otherwise, We can’t believe it, so we should have a clear understanding and understand the scientific concept of preventing myopia.
