The “false to true” time of myopia is shortening

Abstract: myopia develops very rapidly under the age of 12. “Because children under the age of 12 have very strong eye development. Myopia deepens relatively quickly.” At the age of 12 ~ 18, the development of eyeball is more stable, and the deepening of vision is not as serious as before the age of 12.

does not judge true or false myopia by degree

many parents believe that the low-grade myopia of their children for the first time must be false myopia. In fact, true and false myopia is not determined by degrees. Once the child is found to have blurred vision, he must be taken to the eye examination. Only through mydriasis examination can we judge whether it is true myopia or false myopia. At present, the time for children to transition from pseudomyopia to true myopia is getting shorter and shorter. Most of them find that when they have vision problems, they have developed into true myopia. This is related to children’s eye habits now, because they have more opportunities to see objects at close range. For example, watching TV, watching computer games, etc. ”

the degree of myopia under the age of 12 is easy to deepen.

many parents have such questions: why do children wear glasses of appropriate degree, and myopia will deepen? Zeng Junwen said: “the habit of using the eyes does not change. We often look at things close to us, do not pay attention to eye rest, or for genetic reasons. The deepening of myopia is inevitable, but we still need to change into glasses of appropriate degree after the degree is deepened. Otherwise, it will lead to amblyopia.”

myopia develops very rapidly under the age of 12. “Because children under the age of 12 have very strong eye development. Myopia deepens relatively quickly.” At the age of 12 ~ 18, the development of eyeball is more stable, and the deepening of vision is not as serious as before the age of 12. After the age of 18, it is rare for eyesight to deepen again, unless it is genetic factors, or some people’s glasses are more sensitive to close-up objects, which belongs to malignant myopia. They also need to reconfigure glasses after eyesight deepening, or do myopia correction surgery.
