What consequence will myopia drag for a long time have?

Abstract: after myopia, due to the less use of adjustment and more use of collective function, the imbalance of adjustment and collective function is caused, and the internal rectus muscle is in an excessive tension state for a long time. Over time, the internal rectus muscle function is insufficient, and the collective function of both eyes is weakened accordingly, so it is very easy to cause exophoria or exotropia.

myopia is also called myopic eye, because this kind of eye can only see near but not far. At rest, parallel light from infinite distance gathers into focus in front of the retina after refraction of the refractive system of the eye, and forms an unclear image on the retina. The far vision is significantly reduced, but the near vision is still normal. Although myopia is a common ophthalmic disease, But often can not arouse everyone’s attention to this disease, many people think that myopia does not need treatment, this view is wrong!

what consequences will occur if myopia is not treated!

  1. Eye fatigue

and

due to unclear vision, enhanced eye regulation and excessive tension of eye muscles for a long time, it is easy to cause eye fatigue. There may be eye swelling, eye pain, orbital pain, dizziness, nausea and other symptoms.

  2. After myopia caused by strabismus

and

, due to the less use of adjustment and more use of collective function, the imbalance of adjustment and collective function is caused, and the internal rectus muscle is in an excessive tension state for a long time. Over time, the internal rectus muscle function is insufficient, and the collective function of both eyes is weakened accordingly, so it is very easy to cause exophoric strabismus or exotropia.

  3. Macular hemorrhage and degeneration

and

degenerative myopia can cause macular hemorrhage, atrophy and degeneration of retina and choroid, which seriously affect vision.

  4. Retinal detachment

and

for high myopia, due to the elongation of the eye axis and the liquefaction and degeneration of the vitreous, the fiber cords in the vitreous can adhere to the retina and pull the retina. When the eyeball is impacted by external forces or trauma, it can cause retinal rupture and retinal detachment. Retinal detachment is the most serious complication of high myopia, and the visual acuity is extremely reduced, If not treated in time, it can lead to blindness.

5, “flying mosquito disease”,

“flying mosquito disease”: due to the liquefaction of vitreous in the eye, the elasticity of eyeball decreases, which can produce floating objects in the vitreous, that is, “vitreous turbidity”, and black shadows such as dot, arachnoid and filamentous flutter in front of eyes, commonly known as “flying mosquito disease”.

6. Will genetic

myopia be inherited. About 5% of myopic patients are related to heredity, usually more than 600 degrees. If both parents are highly myopic, the possibility of genetic offspring will be 90%. If one of the parents is highly myopic, the possibility of genetic offspring is 50%, but there are also incomplete manifestations.
