Abstract: it’s like an iron chopstick and a wooden chopstick. When there is no external force, they can use them normally, but once there is an external force, the iron chopsticks are still safe, but the wooden chopsticks are broken. Whether children are iron chopsticks or wooden chopsticks is largely determined by their parents’ genes.
if both parents are highly myopic, the incidence of children’s high myopia is likely to reach more than 80%. Some people may wonder, “I’m not short-sighted at birth. I’m a postnatal genius. Why do I inherit it to my children?” None of the parents in the study was congenital myopia, and all were acquired myopia. Other people’s children are not nearsighted after completing their doctor’s degree. Your children are nearsighted only after primary school, perhaps because your children are more likely to be nearsighted.
this is like an iron chopstick and a wooden chopstick. When there is no external force, they can use them normally, but once there is an external force, the iron chopsticks are still safe, but the wooden chopsticks are broken. Whether children are iron chopsticks or wooden chopsticks is largely determined by their parents’ genes.
02. Lack of outdoor sports
research shows that increasing outdoor activity time has a clear protective effect on the occurrence and development of juvenile myopia. Therefore, when parents are free, they must take their children outdoors. More outdoor activities are less likely to develop myopia. For children who want to prevent myopia, outdoor activities should be at least 2 hours a day, and 3 hours is better.
03. Long time close eye
children have great learning pressure. In extracurricular cram schools, classroom homework is like a mountain on children, and children have to study and do homework for a long time. However, studies have shown that preschool children who read more than two hours a day have a 2.16 times higher risk of myopia. Therefore, while supervising their children’s serious study, parents should remind their children to pay attention to rest. Every 50 minutes of study, they should overlook or close their eyes for 10 minutes.
04. Parents do not pay attention to / understand
parents do not pay enough attention to or understand the problem of myopia, which may delay the best time for the prevention and treatment of children’s myopia. Experts suggest that when children are 3 ~ 6 years old, it is best to start a comprehensive optometry examination once a year and establish refractive development files. Aier ophthalmic refractive development file examination includes diopter, eye axis length, corneal radian, etc. to see whether the child belongs to high-risk myopia group, find out the child’s myopia development trend in advance, and reasonably intervene the occurrence and development of myopia through years of testing.
