Wearing OK glasses is really the most feasible way to control myopia!

Abstract: the wearing age of corneal shaping lens stipulated by the state: after 9 years old, Until adulthood (about 50 years old), it can be worn if there is a need for work or life. However, if the child’s annual myopia develops more than 50 degrees and has an obvious genetic tendency of myopia, it can also be considered for corneal plastic surgery. Once you feel it, myopia disappears?!,… Speaking of corneal plastic lens (commonly known as OK lens), they can not only correct myopia, but also effectively control the deepening of myopia, but also make many parents sweat: it is said that OK lens will make the cornea thinner?,

wake up,

myopia disappears?!

talking about corneal shaping lens (commonly known as OK lens)

they can not only correct myopia

and

, but also effectively control the deepening of myopia

and

, but also make many parents sweat:

and

it is said that OK lenses will make the cornea thinner?

causes dry eyes?

corneal inflammation, perforation, and even blindness?!

▲ there are many discussions on the safety of corneal plastic lens on the network. Is

and

corneal shaping lens safe? The answer was given at the Lingnan optometry forum held by Zhongshan ophthalmology center of Sun Yat sen University in Guangzhou on September 12. Professor LAN Fangfang, deputy director of the optometry center of the people’s Hospital of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, pointed out, Corneal shaping lens (OK lens) is the most feasible way to effectively control juvenile myopia, but it must also abide by the basic operating specifications to ensure its safety and effectiveness.

in terms of practical operation, what problems should be paid attention to in the use of OK lens, who is suitable, wearing time, etc. Professor LAN Fangfang also answered the questions of the housekeeper:

and

are small contact lenses. There are many precautions to ensure their safety!

1. Which children are suitable for wearing OK glasses?

and

ophthalmologists will comprehensively evaluate the child’s eye condition and eye conditions through at least 16 professional examinations to determine whether the child is suitable for wearing OK glasses.

in addition, It is also necessary to consider personal wishes (whether the child is willing to wear hard contact lenses), hygiene habits (always pay attention to eye cleaning during wearing), time arrangement (daily care is cumbersome), economic ability (whether the family can bear the cost of fitting and replacing lenses), etc. to decide whether to carry out fitting.

2. When is the best time to wear it?

and

the wearing age of corneal shaping lens stipulated by the state: after 9 years old, Until adulthood (about 50 years old), it can be worn if there is a need for work or life. However, if the child’s annual myopia degree exceeds 50 degrees and has an obvious genetic tendency of myopia, keratoplasty can also be considered.

If the child’s degree rises rapidly or has obvious genetic tendency, it can be considered to control the progression of myopia through corneal plastic lens.

3. What should we pay special attention to when wearing corneal shaping glasses?

and

should emphasize that the fitting of OK mirror belongs to medical behavior and must be used under the supervision of qualified institutions and professional doctors.

4. How to wear OK glasses correctly?

and

have good compliance. Wash, wear and care in strict accordance with the requirements of doctors;

are reviewed regularly. At the beginning of wearing, recheck according to the doctor’s advice, and recheck every three months after it is stable. Doctors will evaluate and recommend some indicators, such as whether the cornea is healthy, whether the vision is clear, whether the lens is damaged, etc;

and

in special cases, if there is a serious cold, high fever, systemic diseases leading to the decline of resistance, etc., it is necessary to stop wearing corneal shaping glasses to prevent infection;

and

OK mirrors should achieve good vision correction effect, and sleep at night should be guaranteed for more than 8 hours. The requirement of sleeping position for wearing glasses is: you can’t sleep on your stomach, sleep on your side, and don’t press your eyes. After getting up the next day, clean your hands and then take off the mirror to wash to ensure the hygiene of your eyes.

if you have a cold and fever and your resistance drops, remember to stop wearing corneal shaping glasses!

and

experts remind: to prevent and control children’s myopia, we must play a “combination fist”,

and

. The problem of children’s myopia is becoming more and more serious. Can we just wear OK glasses? Which method is more effective in preventing and controlling children’s myopia? Professor LAN Fangfang pointed out that the intervention methods for myopia can be divided into optical intervention (wearing glasses) and drug intervention (such as atropine), eye care and outdoor activities. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages, and different intervention methods should be selected according to different people. However, it should be noted that myopia prevention and control can not take a single method, such as the combination of OK mirror + atropine + outdoor sports, in order to really control myopia.

So, how to determine which kind of way is suitable for children? This requires the child to undergo a standard and standardized eye examination and choose the appropriate intervention method according to the eye condition.
