, a netizen posted a microblog saying that “eye exercises have maimed Chinese teenagers for 49 years and massage useless acupoints.” As soon as this microblog came out, it immediately aroused heated discussion among readers. So is it good to do eye exercises?

traditional Chinese medicine viewpoint “strongly advocates students to do eye exercises.” traditional Chinese medicine says that students do eye exercises, as long as they don’t go through the motions and do it seriously, it must be effective. It can alleviate eye fatigue and promote eye blood circulation. After doing it, eye muscles will relax, play a role in health care and alleviate eye fatigue. Now there is no theoretical basis to explain that eye exercises are a factor affecting vision decline. Now students have low eyesight in a large area, which is not the reason for eye exercises. It is too much schoolwork pressure that leads to excessive use of eyes. Therefore, students do eye exercises. Although they can not treat myopia, they can play a role in health care. Of course, the action of doing eye exercises must be done in place, and the effect is obvious. Western medicine “does not recommend students to do eye exercises” western medicine has a different view from traditional Chinese medicine. Western Medicine says that it does not recommend students to do eye exercises. The action of eye exercises is not standardized, which may cause damage to the eyes. China has vigorously promoted eye exercises for so many years, but the rate of juvenile myopia is increasing year by year, ranking second in the world. When doing eye exercises, if the action is not standardized, it may cause damage to the eyes. For example, in the fourth round of orbital scraping, if the student’s action is not standardized and the force is improper, it may compress the cornea, resulting in astigmatism. Western medicine also stressed that the survey shows that 90% of people do eye exercises without standardized actions and have no effect. Some experts on the Internet responded that “eye exercises are health exercises rather than therapeutic exercises, and the reason for the increasing myopia rate cannot be attributed to eye exercises”. There is no big difference between health care and treatment itself. Health care itself has the meaning of prevention and mitigation, but the current situation is that eye exercises have not even achieved the role of prevention. There is no evidence that eye exercises can prevent myopia. If the action is not standardized, the possible damage and infection to the eyes exist. If we insist that the benefit of doing eye exercises is that students can rest their eyes when doing exercises. Chinese and Western Medicine suggests giving the eyes a time to relax. Although Chinese and Western medicine have tit for tat views on eye exercises, the suggestions given by Chinese and Western medicine experts on how to prevent juvenile myopia coincide. Students should try to ensure that they have at least 40 minutes to look into the distance every day. In the process of learning, you should also take a break every 40 minutes to give your eyes a relaxing time. Pay attention to eye hygiene. Don’t rub your eyes with your hands. Avoid strong light stimulation to avoid dry eyes. Once you find signs of myopia such as blurred vision and unclear vision, you should go to the hospital in time.
