Why must myopic children check their eyesight regularly

Abstract: compared with foot corrected frame glasses, “under car positive frame glasses” not only can not alleviate the degree deepening, but also accelerate the deepening of myopia. The final means to control the deepening of myopia must be based on the regular visual examination and the diagnosis of the professional optometry director. Don’t listen to the fooling of Jianghu magicians.

myopia degree greater than 600 degrees is called high myopia. The occurrence of high myopia is closely related to heredity, but the acquired environment also has an important impact on the occurrence and development of myopia. High myopia is prone to many serious complications, most of which will cause blindness. It is one of the common causes of blindness in adults, accounting for the sixth place in China.

common complications of high myopia

retinal atrophy, degeneration, hemorrhage and hole

due to factors such as lengthening of ocular axis and posterior scleral staphyloma, patients with high myopia are prone to retinal degeneration and hole, causing hemorrhage, retinal detachment and blindness.

retinal detachment, cataract, glaucoma

due to scleral expansion and retinal degeneration, the chance of retinal detachment in high myopia is 7-8 times higher than that in non high myopia; The chance of high myopia complicated with cataract and glaucoma is also higher than that of normal people.

posterior scleral staphyloma

optic nerve and perimacular retinal degeneration and atrophy, and corrected visual acuity decreased.

flying mosquito disease

high myopia can produce real vitreous degeneration or liquefaction, causing obvious flying mosquito disease. Conscious of light, sparks, flashes or shadows floating in front of you.

subretinal neovascularization

shows subretinal neovascularization in the posterior pole, causing bleeding and affecting vision. How can

and

prevent children’s myopia from becoming high myopia?

regular visual inspection is the premise of all intervention means.

relative to foot corrected frame glasses, “under car positive frame glasses” can not alleviate the degree deepening, on the contrary, it will accelerate the deepening of myopia. The final means to control the deepening of myopia must be based on the regular visual examination and the diagnosis of the professional optometry director. Don’t listen to the fooling of Jianghu magicians.

why do children wear “under car positive frame glasses”?

on the one hand, this is related to some parents’ lack of scientific common sense of matching glasses. Many parents always hope to match the degree lower when their children are equipped with myopia glasses. It seems that this means that their children’s myopia is lighter. In fact, it’s the same as buying shoes. The child’s feet are size 36, so whether you buy a larger or a smaller shoe will not change the size of your feet, it will only make the child uncomfortable.

on the other hand, let’s look at a possibility:

a student had glasses for the first time at the age of 8, with myopia of 200 degrees; At that time, they were equipped with fully corrected glasses. According to Professor warburn’s research, under normal circumstances, myopia of 8-year-old children may deepen by 100 degrees within a year, but this 100 degrees will not happen overnight. There must be a process. Therefore, we can imagine that when a child wears 200 degree glasses for about half a year, his myopia is actually 250 degrees, while his glasses are still 200 degrees. At this time, he is wearing “owe car positive frame glasses”.

now, parents should understand why children wear “under car positive frame glasses” most of the time. There is only one way to avoid such problems: check your eyesight regularly. If the degree of myopia increases by more than 100 degrees, replace the lens in time. It’s like that once mothers find that their children grow tall and can’t wear clothes and pants, they immediately buy a larger size.
