Who is not suitable for mydriatic optometry

Abstract: mydriatic optometry is required for complex ametropia, such as far myopia, astigmatism, mixed astigmatism, high myopia, high astigmatism, etc., In the eye hospital, I often hear the doctor say that mydriatic optometry is necessary. What is mydriatic optometry and is it suitable for everyone? Mydriatic optometry, also known as objective optometry, is to dilate the pupil with mydriatic drugs before optometry, so that the ciliary muscle is completely paralyzed, the pupil response to light disappears, and then conduct retinoscopy or computer optometry. Optometry mydriasis belongs to medical optometry, which is a medical behavior. This service can only be provided in professional eye hospitals and optometry specialties, that is, the prescription right of mydriasis optometry. Mydriatic optometry is commonly used in the following situations: (1) high hyperopia eyes with strong accommodation, it is best to use mydriatic optometry; (2) children under 12 years old, due to strong accommodation, if they do not mydriatic, the error of optometry will be very large; (3) patients with poor vision correction or refractive interstitial opacity after mydriatic Optometry (such as mild vitreous opacity), Mydriatic optometry shall be performed;, (4) mydriatic optometry is required for complex ametropia, such as far myopia, astigmatism, mixed astigmatism, high myopia, high astigmatism, etc.;, (5) mydriatic optometry is required when some diagnostic optometry, fundus and refractive stroma tests are normal, but vision is poor, and optometry is required to eliminate the problem of ametropia by means of optometry (6) In principle, ametropic patients aged 12 ~ 40 should have mydriatic optometry for the first time. When changing the mirror for the second time, if the diopter changes little and the astigmatism is not obvious, they can add or subtract after mydriatic optometry according to the diopter of the original mirror;,

In the eye hospital, I often hear the doctor say that mydriatic optometry is necessary. What is mydriatic optometry and is it suitable for everyone? Mydriatic optometry, also known as objective optometry, is to dilate the pupil with mydriatic drugs before optometry, so that the ciliary muscle is completely paralyzed, the pupil response to light disappears, and then conduct retinoscopy or computer optometry. Optometry mydriasis belongs to medical optometry, which is a medical behavior. This service can only be provided in professional eye hospitals and optometry specialties, that is, the prescription right of mydriasis optometry. Mydriatic optometry is commonly used in the following situations:

(1) high hyperopia eyes with strong accommodation, so mydriatic optometry is best;

(2) children under 12 years old will have a large error in optometry if they do not mydriatic due to their strong accommodation;

(3) Mydriatic optometry should be performed for patients with poor vision correction or refractive interstitial opacity after small pupil Optometry (such as mild vitreous opacity);

(4) mydriatic optometry is required for complex ametropia, such as far and near sighted astigmatism, mixed astigmatism, high myopia, high astigmatism, etc.;

(5) Some diagnostic optometry, fundus and refractive stroma tests are normal, but the visual acuity is poor. When it is necessary to eliminate the problem of ametropia by means of optometry, mydriatic optometry is required;

(6) In principle, ametropic patients aged 12 ~ 40 should have mydriatic optometry for the first time. When changing the mirror for the second time, if the diopter changes little and the astigmatism is not obvious, they can add or subtract after mydriatic optometry according to the diopter of the original mirror;

(7) the vision of teenagers is reduced or unstable (clear for a while and unclear for a while), If pseudomyopia is suspected, mydriasis optometry should be ruled out. Once mydriasis, the regulating effect disappears, and pseudomyopia recovers.

and

are not suitable for mydriatic optometry:

and

(1) mydriatic optometry is contraindicated for glaucoma patients, otherwise it will lead to elevated intraocular pressure;

and

(2) mydriatic optometry is generally not used for people over 40 years old due to the weakening of ciliary muscle regulation;

and

(3) For severe lens and vitreous opacity and corneal leukoplakia, mydriatic optometry is meaningless due to the difficulty of examination;

(4) for severe posterior or anterior pupil adhesion, the pupil cannot be dilated normally after the application of mydriatic drugs, and there is no need for mydriatic optometry;

(5) Patients suspected of glaucoma have shallow anterior chamber, high intraocular pressure or high limit of normal value. The medical history should be inquired in detail and optometry should be performed after confirmation.

Warm tip: only the testing equipment of a professional eye hospital can provide accurate optometry and professional glasses. Therefore, optometry and glasses should go to a professional eye hospital, and professional doctors should customize the best glasses treatment scheme.
