Abstract: 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. If you know these four reasons for
myopia earlier, you may be able to help your children avoid myopia!
if both parents are high myopia, the incidence of high myopia in children 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.
2. 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, doctors of Aier youth myopia prevention and control center suggest that outdoor activities should be at least 2 hours a day, and 3 hours is better.
3. Long time close eye use
children have great learning pressure. In extracurricular tutorial classes, 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.
4. 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. The doctor of Aier juvenile myopia prevention and control center suggested that it is best to start a comprehensive optometry once a year when children are 3 ~ 6 years old and establish refractive development files. Aier ophthalmic refractive development file examination includes refractive power, eye axis length, corneal radian, etc. to see whether the child belongs to high-risk myopia group, find out the development trend of children’s myopia in advance, and reasonably intervene the occurrence and development of children’s myopia through years of testing.
