Abstract: in the past, children’s myopia was generally found in primary school. Now there are more and more preschool children with myopia, which is undoubtedly related to children’s excessive use of electronic products. Electronic screens such as TV sets, mobile phones and computers are light sources themselves. It is easy to get tired when looking directly at the eyes. At the same time, the gorgeous screen color also promotes the continuous adjustment of the eyes, leading to myopia.
now there are more and more small patients with myopia, and their age is getting younger and younger. Among the 40 or 50 outpatients he sees every day, there are at least 89 preschool children. Many children are only four or five years old, and their eyesight has decreased significantly. In the past, in addition to congenital myopia, children were mostly myopia after primary school.
playing mobile computers, learning to play piano and reading may lead to myopia.
used to find children’s myopia in primary school. Now there are more and more preschool myopia children, which is undoubtedly related to children’s excessive use of electronic products. Electronic screens such as TV sets, mobile phones and computers are light sources themselves. It is easy to get tired when looking directly at the eyes. At the same time, the gorgeous screen color also promotes the continuous adjustment of the eyes, leading to myopia.
in addition to electronic products, Dr. Xu believes that premature parent-child reading and piano learning are also the reasons for damaging children’s vision. Reading can hurt your eyes. As we all know, why does learning piano hurt your eyes? When practicing piano and zither, children need to be highly focused. Their eyes must focus on the music score or keys. It is a typical close eye activity, and their eyes are highly nervous. Therefore, if they don’t pay attention, their eyesight will decline.
myopia is not easy to find before the age of six or seven. Pay attention to these bad signals.
my children usually play with our mobile phones. I wonder if there will be any problems with their eyesight? Many parents worry about their children’s eyesight, but preschool children often can’t accurately describe whether they can see objects. “The child can’t explain clearly. When parents find out that they take them to the hospital, their eyesight has often decreased seriously.
to master the situation of children’s eyesight, they must first know the approximate timetable of children’s eyesight development.
Newborn babies will respond to light. Within 1 month after birth, the time of gazing at objects will be gradually prolonged. After 1 year old, I like reading books, can distinguish objects and imitate actions. Vision reaches adult level at the age of 5-6. Before the age of six or seven, excessive eye use can lead to myopia, but it is difficult for parents to find it if they don’t pay attention. If the child often blinks, likes to rub his eyes with his hands, squints at things, and unconsciously walks to the TV to watch TV, it is a bad signal. Take the child to the hospital for examination and change his eye habits. In fact, when these bad signals appear, most children are already nearsighted.
try to do less or even no close eye activities before children reach the age of 5, and increase children’s outdoor sports. If you must practice the piano or read a book, you must rest your eyes for five or six minutes after 40 minutes, close your eyes and refresh yourself or look into the distance. In addition, Dr. Xu reminded that eating too sweet at ordinary times will make children more likely to get myopia.
