Three misunderstandings about myopia

Abstract: many myopia patients or their families heard that they often wear glasses, and myopia will become more and more serious. Therefore, they dare not wear glasses even if their vision is blurred for a long time. In fact, the degree of myopia will not deepen after wearing glasses, because the aggravation of myopia has nothing to do with glasses.

generally requires that children with glasses should have mydriasis optometry again once a year. Children who wear glasses for correction of esotropia need optometry once every six months if they are 2 ~ 3 years old, and the next treatment plan should be determined according to each diopter change and strabismus correction.

misunderstanding 1: will wearing glasses for a long time aggravate myopia?

correction: whether myopia is aggravated has nothing to do with glasses.

many myopia patients or children’s families hear that they often wear glasses, and myopia will become more and more serious. Therefore, they dare not wear glasses even if their vision is blurred for a long time. In fact, the degree of myopia will not deepen after wearing glasses, because the aggravation of myopia has nothing to do with glasses. If the glasses are suitable, the degree of myopia will be stable at a certain level. If you wear them for a while, it is easy to cause eye fatigue and aggravate myopia.

misunderstanding 2: can’t you take off your glasses after wearing them?

correction: glasses can be removed for low degree hyperopia

many parents think that their children can’t take them off again after wearing glasses, which is also wrong. Generally, children younger than 12 years old who suffer from myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism should often wear glasses; Teenagers with myopia or hyperopia above 100 degrees and simple astigmatism above 75 degrees should often wear glasses. However, a considerable number of ametropic children, such as low degree hyperopia and astigmatism, are expected to take off their glasses with the development of visual function when they grow up.
