What if children’s vision examination does not meet the standard?

Abstract: families with allowable conditions can try to choose corneal shaping lens. Its effectiveness and safety have been clinically verified, which can control the development of low to moderate myopia. In use, parents should pay attention to their children’s eye hygiene, clean the lens every day, and go to the hospital for review regularly.

related examinations include visual acuity, mydriatic optometry and fundus examination. In order to accurately obtain the refractive error of the human eye at rest, cycloplegia optometry is sometimes required, Because drugs that paralyze the ciliary muscle (such as atropine) are accompanied by dilation of the pupil, it was often called “dilation optometry” in the past 。 Mydriatic optometry is the application of drugs to make the eyes produce two physiological changes: ciliary muscle paralysis and mydriasis, so as to make the eyes in a quiet and resting state. Mydriasis is the most effective and accurate method to identify juvenile true and false myopia. Mydriasis optometry is not harmful to children after receiving detailed eye examination in the ophthalmology department of a regular hospital. The role of mydriasis agent is to paralyze the ciliary muscle and dilate the pupils, which can lead to photophobia and blurred near vision. The maximum ciliary muscle paralysis of rapid mydriasis agent (such as topicamide) occurs half an hour after treatment, the efficacy disappears 6 hours, and the pupil returns to the level before treatment. Slow mydriasis agent (i.e. atropine) can relax the pupil sphincter while relaxing the ciliary muscle. It has a strong effect on regulating paralysis and lasts for a long time, lasting for 7-12 days. A few people with atropine mydriasis may have symptoms such as red face, dry mouth, palpitation, dry skin, flushing, dysuria and so on. Therefore, immediately press the lacrimal sac for 2-3 minutes after atropine, and wipe too much ointment to reduce pain The drug is absorbed into the nasopharynx from the lacrimal dots. After mydriasis, there will be a period of photophobia and blurred vision, and it is difficult to work with eyes at close distance, such as reading and writing. Therefore, it is recommended that patients avoid too much close eye work during this period of time. When going out in strong sunshine, they can wear sunglasses appropriately.

if true myopia is confirmed by mydriatic optometry, children need to wear glasses of appropriate degree in time to prevent myopia from deepening too quickly. If conditions permit, families can try to choose corneal shaping lens. Its effectiveness and safety have been clinically verified, which can control the development of low to moderate myopia. During use, parents should pay attention to their children’s eye hygiene, clean the lens every day, and go to the hospital for review regularly.

for children with amblyopia, glasses should be provided in time, and lens covering and amblyopia training treatment should be carried out according to the doctor’s advice. If the treatment is timely, the child’s vision can be improved. Don’t miss the best period of amblyopia treatment.

children and adolescents have strong eye adjustment ability and are in the process of growth and change. We suggest that it is best to take children to the hospital every six months to check their eyesight and treat them in time, so as not to delay their condition.
