Retinal detachment?! Myopia above 600 degrees is a high-risk group

Abstract: after retinal detachment, even with surgical treatment, it is relatively difficult to restore vision. Therefore, he suggested that such patients should go to the ophthalmology regularly to check the fundus of their eyes. If degenerative areas or retinal holes are found in their eyes, they can be treated as soon as possible to prevent “net detachment”.

Ms. Chen, 50, was a patient with myopia in the early stage. Now, her myopia has reached 1200 degrees. It has become her habit to wear glasses all year round. Recently, after dancing in the square, Ms. Chen felt that she couldn’t see clearly with glasses, so she had to go to the hospital for examination. The results of the hospital examination surprised her!

“what?” Retinal detachment?

and

considering that they are highly myopic, seldom use electronic products, and their eyes have not suffered any trauma, what’s the matter? But finally, in order to restore her eyesight, Ms. Chen had to undergo surgery.

“analysis” after strenuous exercise, the retina is easy to fall off.

in this regard, experts say that generally, the intraocular structure of people with high myopia will change due to long-term myopia. For example, the eyeball will gradually expand and become larger and longer. With the expansion of the sclera of the outer wall of the eyeball, the retina will be pulled thinner and thinner.

and

generally speaking, the thinned retina is like a piece of clothing. When it is worn very thin, it is easy to tear. Especially during strenuous exercise, due to the movement of liquefied vitreous, pulling the weak retina will lead to “holes” in the retina. At this time, the liquid in the eyes will pour in from the “holes” and cause the retina to fall off.

“remind” two symptoms need to be vigilant

nowadays, there are more and more people with high myopia and more patients with retinal detachment. Because some people lack relevant knowledge of eye protection, they will not choose to see a doctor in time in the early stage of the disease. When the disease occurs, they have reached the late stage of the disease and have to undergo surgical treatment.

and

in this regard, experts from the eye hospital explained that at present, retinal detachment is mainly divided into primary, rhegmatogenous, traction, exudation and so on. For the most common primary retinal detachment, it is more common in high myopia and middle-aged and elderly people. This is because with the increase of age, the central part of vitreous body of middle-aged and elderly people, A small liquefaction cavity begins to appear, and then the liquefaction range continues to expand. In addition, there are phenomena such as retinal deformation, atrophy and thinning in elderly myopia patients. At this time, when such patients do some actions such as shaking their heads, they may lead to liquefied vitreous traction retinal detachment.

if a patient feels intermittent flash in his eyes, or the shadow flutters in front of him, or even the shadow is blocked in one direction, he should go to the hospital for detailed examination as soon as possible. Because these may become an early warning of retinal detachment.

and

experts also remind that after retinal detachment, it is relatively difficult to recover vision even after surgical treatment. Therefore, he suggests that such patients should go to the ophthalmology regularly to check the fundus of their eyes. If degenerative areas or retinal holes are found in their eyes, they can be treated as soon as possible to prevent “net detachment”.

prevention: protect your eyes from three aspects

1. Take care of your eyes as much as possible in daily life. Don’t read books, TV, computer, etc. for a long time. During this period, we should also pay attention to the correct eye posture, such as lying reading, watching while walking, and reading too close to the computer screen, which may lead to visual fatigue. For a long time, it may lead to myopia and lay a hidden danger for retinal detachment;

2. For patients with myopia, Especially those with high myopia (adults with myopia greater than 600 degrees and children with myopia greater than 400 degrees) should avoid too intense sports in daily life, such as playing basketball, horseback riding, diving, boxing, fast running, etc.;

3. In terms of diet, eat more carrots and pig liver according to your actual situation. These foods are good for your eyes.
