High myopia not only brings inconvenience to our life, but also harms our physical and mental health. In the later stage, it will cause complications. You can’t take part in strenuous exercise. You can adjust your diet.
In order to prevent the occurrence and development of myopia, the food used in diet therapy is mainly to supplement the necessary nutrients of the ciliary muscle and sclera in the eye, enhance the muscle strength of the ciliary muscle, help it recover its intrinsic function, strengthen the tenacity of the sclera, enhance its resistance to the outside world, and prevent its expansion.
High myopia can be supplemented with the following nutrients:
As far as sclera is concerned, it can become the tough shell of the eyeball, because it contains a variety of essential amino acids, forming a very strong fibrous tissue. Although the sclera has certain tenacity, it is still weak in the anterior and posterior axial diameter. Meat, fish, eggs, milk and other animal foods not only contain rich protein, but also all essential amino acids.
Calcium is the main component of bone and sclera. The high content of calcium plays an important role in enhancing the tenacity of sclera. In the food, the bones of cattle, pigs, sheep and other animals are rich in calcium, which is easy to be absorbed and utilized by human body. Other products such as milk, beans, shrimp skin, shrimp, eggs, rape, cabbage, peanut, jujube and so on contain more calcium.
Myopia patients generally lack chromium and zinc, and they should eat more zinc containing foods. Foods such as soybean, almond, laver, kelp, mutton, yellow croaker, milk powder, tea, meat, beef, liver, etc. contain more zinc and chromium, which can be increased appropriately.
Vitamins are essential nutrients for human body. Although the demand of human body is very small, they play an important role in the metabolism of substance and energy. In the treatment of myopia with dietotherapy, vitamin A, B1, B2, C, and e should be supplemented appropriately. Vitamin rich foods include eggs, milk, meat, fish, liver and fresh vegetables and fruits.
