Abstract: when squinting, the eyelid can block part of the pupil, which can reduce the scattering of light, so as to temporarily improve and improve vision. Therefore, when children often squint when reading and watching TV, they should be careful to suffer from myopia. Since the summer vacation of
, children’s entertainment projects have been placed on electronic products such as computers, mobile phones and iPads. Now that summer vacation is over, children, how are your eyesight?
according to the survey of the research project on the prevention and treatment of children’s myopia, the incidence of myopia in China’s population is 33%, 1.5 times the world average; The number of myopia in China is nearly 400 million, ranking first in the world. The incidence rate of juvenile myopia in China is 50% to 60%. Among them, are there any children in your family?
, the first in the world, are really unpleasant. What’s more worrying is that many children who come to Anshan humanity eye hospital have poor eyesight. In fact, they have been short-sighted for a long time and have missed the best opportunity for correction… Why didn’t parents find out early?
because there’s one thing you certainly haven’t done for your child – establish a refractive development file!
children’s refractive development files mainly record naked eye vision, daily life vision and the best corrected vision. Cycloplegia optometry was performed every 6 months, and the diopter was recorded. The physiological indexes such as corneal diopter and radius of curvature, axial length, anterior chamber depth, intraocular pressure, height and weight were measured at the same time.
what are the signs of myopia in children?
1 squint to see things
when squinting, the eyelids can block some pupils, which can reduce the scattering of light, so as to temporarily improve and improve vision. Therefore, when children often squint when reading and watching TV, they should be careful to suffer from myopia.
2 look at things askew
look at objects askew can reduce the impact of scattered light on vision. Therefore, some children will look at things askew in the early stage of myopia.
3 frequent blinking
children blink frequently when they can’t see clearly, because frequent blinking can alleviate myopia and increase visual acuity to a certain extent.
4 love rubbing eyes
when the eyes are not in time, we will rub our eyes in case we can’t see clearly, but if children often rub their eyes, we should be vigilant against myopia.
when a child’s vision decreases rapidly in one eye, he will mainly use the other eye with normal vision. Some children with myopia will also have strabismus.
frowning often will make the extraocular muscles compress the eyeball, resulting in reverse stimulation of the eye muscles and accelerate the formation of myopia.
7 pull the corners of the eyes
after suffering from myopia, some children often pull the corners of their eyes outward with their hands, because doing so is actually the same as tilting their heads and squinting their eyes.
