What consequences will myopia not be corrected and delayed correction have? I was stunned after reading it!

Abstract: people with high myopia are prone to strabismus, which is mainly due to the imbalance of eye regulation and collection function in people with high myopia, and the internal rectus muscle is in a state of excessive tension for a long time. Over time, the internal rectus muscle function is lack and the binocular mobilization function is weakened, so it is easy to cause exophoria or exotropia.

myopia is one of the most common “public diseases” in recent years, especially in children and adolescents. The myopia rate is even more than 50%. It may be because of common reasons that some parents do not pay much attention to their children’s myopia and leave light myopia at will. If the degree is slightly higher, they just go to the glasses store to get a pair of glasses. In fact, if myopia is not corrected scientifically, It is likely to induce a series of serious complications!

  1. Cause retinal detachment. High myopia will lead to the elongation of the ocular axis and the continuous expansion of the sclera, and the area of the retina is fixed after it is mature. With the expansion of the sclera of the outer wall of the eye, the retina will be pulled thinner and thinner. The thin retina is easy to be torn by external force, resulting in retinal holes, resulting in split retinal detachment.

  2. Form strabismus. People with high myopia are prone to strabismus, which is mainly because the eye adjustment and collection function of people with high myopia are unbalanced, and the internal rectus muscle is in an excessive tension state for a long time. Over time, the internal rectus muscle function is lack, and the binocular mobilization function is weakened accordingly, which is easy to cause exophoria or exotropia.

  3. Causes macular hemorrhage and degeneration. The retina of myopia will produce a kind of neovascular growth factor. These factors make the subretinal neovascularization grow. These neovascularization walls are very thin and easy to rupture and bleed, forming macular hemorrhage. The local formation of short marks after multiple bleeding can cause macular degeneration, which can permanently damage vision.

  4. Cause flying mosquito disease. With the deepening of myopia, people’s eyeballs will be pulled larger and larger due to the adjustment of focal length. In this way, the density of the vitreous body of the eye will also change. Some parts are “thick” and some parts are “thin”, which will affect the projection of light and cause the occurrence of physiological “flying mosquito disease”.

  5. Glaucoma. In myopia, the structure of the filter curtain at the atrial angle is abnormal, so the outflow resistance of aqueous humor is large, which is easy to cause the increase of intraocular pressure. According to statistics, 30% of high myopia have glaucoma, which will lead to the gradual loss of vision.
