The child’s eyesight is not good. Is it myopia?

Abstract: many parents believe that “the sooner they wear glasses, the higher the degree in the future”, so they refuse to provide glasses for their children. In fact, the correct wearing of glasses will not deepen myopia, but wearing appropriate glasses can control and delay the degree growth.

misunderstanding 1: Children’s poor eyesight is myopia.

once some parents find that their children’s eyesight has decreased, they arbitrarily think that their children are suffering from myopia. In fact, there are many eye diseases that can affect children’s vision. In addition to myopia, there are also congenital fundus lesions, congenital hyperopia, congenital astigmatism, congenital strabismus, congenital simple amblyopia, etc. Therefore, when parents find that their children’s vision decreases, they should first take their children to a regular hospital for diagnosis, and then carry out targeted treatment.

: wearing glasses early will deepen myopia in the future.

and

many parents believe that “the sooner you wear glasses, the higher the degree in the future”, so they refuse to provide glasses for children for correction. In fact, the correct wearing of glasses will not deepen myopia, but wearing appropriate glasses can control and delay the degree growth. Aishike is specially designed for teenagers to improve peripheral vision while correcting central vision, delay the lengthening of eye axis, so as to delay the development of myopia and effectively control the growth of myopia. Misunderstanding 3 of

and

: do not recheck

and

after wearing glasses, many parents will no longer take their myopia children to the hospital for examination. This practice is wrong. After children with myopia wear glasses, parents should recheck at least once a year, so as to timely understand the changes of children’s vision and adjust the correction plan in time. In addition, for school-age children without myopia, parents should often take them to the hospital for eye examination to prevent and correct vision problems in time. Misunderstanding 4 of

and

: mydriatic optometry is harmful to the eyes.

and

in fact, mydriatic will not cause damage to the eyes. Generally, the efficacy of rapid mydriatic agent disappears within 6 to 8 hours, and the pupil recovers as before. Atropine, a slow mydriasis agent, may take 2 to 4 weeks to disappear. Teenagers need mydriasis for optometry, which can not only avoid excessive regulation of ciliary muscle, but also eliminate pseudomyopia caused by regulation spasm, which helps to obtain an objective index and ensure more accurate optometry.
