When is the best time to treat myopia?

Abstract: generally, before the age of 18, the incidence of juvenile myopia is high and develops very fast. At this time, if teenagers suffer from myopia and fail to carry out myopia treatment in time, the degree of myopia will rise rapidly, and even increase by 1.00 to 2.00d every year.

myopia, unlike what some patients think, only reduces far vision. In fact, if myopia is not treated in time, it will cause a variety of complications and cause great harm to the patient’s body and mind. Especially for juvenile myopia patients, their vision has not yet developed completely, so we should only grasp the best period of myopia treatment. Experts from Cleveland medical center in the United States believe that the two peak periods of vision development are the best time for myopia treatment.

American experts said that generally, before the age of 18, the incidence of juvenile myopia is high and develops very fast. At this time, if teenagers suffer from myopia and fail to carry out myopia treatment in time, the degree of myopia will rise rapidly, and even increase by 1.00 to 2.00d every year.

about 6 years old is the first peak of visual development. Before that, children’s vision will develop as fast as height and weight. About 13 years old is the second peak of visual development. During this period, the ability of vision repair and improvement is still relatively strong, and it is easier to obtain the ideal effect of myopia treatment.

experts engaged in relevant research say that although they emphasize the importance of myopia treatment in the two peak periods of visual development, they can not unilaterally think that only in these two periods can ideal correction effects be obtained. For the treatment of myopia, we should find and correct it as soon as possible.

if the patient fails to start myopia treatment and delays again and again, the degree of myopia will continue to deepen, which may lead to a variety of complications.

,

retinal degeneration, retinal hole and macular degeneration are the most common complications of myopia treatment. In recent years, there have been more reports of retinal detachment due to the lag of myopia treatment. Experts specially warned that patients with high myopia must avoid strong impact or concussion on their head, especially to prevent external force damage to their eyes.
