Abstract: many scholars believe that there is no need to distinguish between true and false myopia, but the concept of false myopia is particularly popular in China. Therefore, when parents come to the hospital, they usually ask whether it is false myopia. Pseudomyopia refers to the early stage of myopia in children. Due to long-time close eye use, the eyes are in a state of tension or spasm. Mydriatic optometry can be distinguished.
1. When should I take my child to the hospital for optometry?
children should have their eyesight checked every year. When their eyesight is lower than the average level of children of the same age, they must have mydriatic optometry. When children’s eyesight decreases, some will directly tell their parents, but many may not tell their parents that parents should pay more attention to observation at ordinary times. If you find that children often squint at things, watch TV, sit closer and closer, and like to squint or squint their head to watch TV, you should take them to the hospital or a formal optometry Center for optometry in time.
2. Is our child true myopia or false myopia?
many scholars believe that there is no need to distinguish between true and false myopia, but the concept of false myopia is particularly popular in China. Therefore, when parents come to the hospital, they usually ask whether it is false myopia. Pseudomyopia refers to the early stage of myopia in children. Due to long-time close eye use, the eyes are in a state of tension or spasm. Mydriatic optometry can be distinguished. If there is still myopia after mydriasis optometry, it is true myopia.
3. Should we wear glasses?
parents often ask, should our children wear glasses for 50 degree myopia? We need to correct a concept here. If it does not affect our study and life, we can observe it for a period of time and review it again.
4. Can’t you take off your glasses in your life?
many parents are reluctant to wear glasses because they think they have to wear glasses all the time. Indeed, because you are nearsighted, the refractive state is unlikely to reverse, and generally speaking, the degree will certainly continue to deepen, so glasses need to be worn all the time. But what I want to say here is that even if you don’t wear glasses, your myopia degree is there, and it will become deeper and deeper. The deepening of the degree is not caused by wearing glasses, but by the development of the child’s refractive state. It’s like an ostrich burying its head in the sand when it has a problem. In fact, it doesn’t solve any problem.
5. What if we just don’t want to wear glasses?
first of all, your children can’t see clearly. The greater the degree, the less they can see far away, which may affect their study and daily life. Secondly, the eyes are always in a state of unclear vision, which is easy to lead to visual fatigue, eye swelling and pain, severe headache, etc. Thirdly, long-term in this state may lead to imbalance of regulation and collection, and strabismus. Finally, the long-term inability of the eyes to see clearly may make the degree develop more rapidly.
6. Do children need to wear glasses all the time?
generally recommend wearing glasses all the time. However, according to clinical experience, some doctors believe that when the degree is low (myopia is below 200 degrees), they can wear it when looking far and not when looking near; In the case of more than 200 degrees, it is recommended to wear glasses all the time.
7. Is the degree of glasses good enough or less?
at present, many studies believe that good enough, that is, good enough degree matching, may delay the development of myopia.
8. Wear glasses all the time. Will your eyes be deformed?
many people think that their eyes become more and more convex after wearing glasses for a long time. In fact, eye bulge is caused by the increase of degree and the lengthening of eye axis. The degree of myopia deepened by 300 degrees and the eye increased by 1mm. Therefore, the deeper the degree, generally speaking, the longer the eyes, the more prominent the eyeballs look. This is not caused by wearing glasses.
9. How can ability control myopia degree to develop?
at present, the more effective way to control the development of myopia is to wear corneal shaping glasses. Corneal shaping lens only needs to be worn at night, and clear naked vision can be achieved during the day.
