[vigilance] myopia increases by 200 degrees a year. Be careful to become high myopia

Abstract: once it develops into high myopia, the eyeball becomes larger and the sclera and eyeball wall become thinner. This will produce many myopia complications such as vitreous opacity and retinal detachment.

“children have heavy homework and great learning pressure, and the degree of myopia has also soared. The glasses matched a year ago were only 100 degrees, which has increased by 200 degrees a year.” In this regard, ophthalmologists from Baoji hi vision optical myopia and amblyopia prevention and control center said that if the degree of myopia increases by 200 degrees every year, especially for children before the age of 9, if the degree of myopia has reached 300 degrees, it must be stopped in time, otherwise it may develop into high myopia and even potential risk of blindness.

generally speaking, the normal visual acuity of children aged 7-12 is 0.8-1.0. By the age of 12, the visual acuity development is basically stable and reaches the best state. At the stage of

and

, most of them are in grade 1-5 of primary school, which is the peak period of eye use and the stage of myopia latent or formation.

“often the younger the child gets myopia, the faster the degree rises.” Ophthalmologists told reporters that under normal circumstances, children before the age of 15 have a 50 degree increase in myopia every year, but those with an increase of more than 200 degrees should be paid attention to. Once

and

develop into high myopia, the eyeball becomes larger and the sclera and eyeball wall become thinner. This will produce many myopia complications such as vitreous opacity and retinal detachment.

“for children who have been diagnosed with true myopia, the best treatment is to control the increase of degree. Most frame glasses can only meet the need to see objects, and can not effectively curb the development of myopia.” According to experts, for teenagers under the age of 18, they can use eye mother student glasses for vision correction. Long-term adherence can effectively control the development of myopia, especially for children with developing eyeballs aged 8-16 and children with rapid development of myopia.
