Six typical problems of children’s myopia glasses!

Abstract: slow mydriasis can fully paralyze the muscles controlling pupil contraction, and the results of optometry will be more accurate. There is no good or bad difference between the two ways of mydriasis. It depends on the child’s age and the actual situation of the eyes.

question 1: why mydriasis?

because the ciliary muscle of children’s eyes has strong regulation ability, without mydriasis, the ciliary muscle will not be paralyzed, and the true refractive power may be covered up. Through mydriasis, we can not only diagnose the types of ametropia, namely myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism, but also obtain accurate diopter.

question 2: is mydriasis safe?

mydriasis does no harm to the eyes. Only a small number of people (mostly the elderly) have high intraocular pressure due to mydriasis due to abnormal eye anatomical characteristics, which leads to the onset of angle closure glaucoma. However, children rarely see it.

question 3: fast or slow?

and

are called rapid mydriasis, which are mainly suitable for older children and adults.

slow mydriasis can fully paralyze the muscles that control the contraction of the pupil, and the results of optometry will be more accurate. There is no good or bad difference between the two ways of mydriasis. It depends on the child’s age and the actual situation of the eyes.

question 4: is it true myopia or false myopia?

true myopia is an organic change and cannot recover naturally. If the child’s poor eyesight lasts for half a semester or several months, it is likely to be true myopia.

and

pseudomyopia is functional and mostly occurs in adolescents. Vision can decline in a few weeks or one or two months, and can recover to some extent after appropriate rest.

many parents have illusions that their children are just pseudomyopia. In fact, one thing you can do to judge whether a child is pseudomyopia or true myopia is regular mydriatic optometry. After mydriatic optometry, if there is no myopia, the diopter is false myopia, and if there is myopia, the diopter is true myopia.

question 5: does myopia need glasses?

once suffering from true myopia, you must wear appropriate glasses for correction, or wear corneal shaping glasses at night, commonly known as OK glasses. They are generally used in children and adolescents in the growth and development period. Wearing glasses at night has a special “shaping” effect on the cornea, which can control the progress of juvenile myopia.

and

need to remind parents that the fitting of any type of glasses requires professional technology. It is recommended to carry out it under the guidance of doctors and optometrists.

question 6: can eye care reduce myopia?

with the growth and development of children, the diopter of myopia will only increase but not decrease. Teenagers are generally axial myopia. As the eye axis becomes longer, the degree of myopia gradually increases. Generally, for every 1 mm increase in the length of the eye axis, the degree of myopia will increase by 300 degrees. In adulthood, the degree of myopia can be stabilized within a certain range because the axial length of the eye is no longer increased. Any method can not make the lengthened eye axis shorter, so eye protection will not reduce the degree of myopia.
