Will you really be blind in the future?

Abstract: the risk of glaucoma in myopia is 2 ~ 4 times higher than that in non myopia, and most friends with high myopia are open-angle glaucoma. Open angle glaucoma is a disease of irreversible damage of optic nerve and visual field caused by increasing intraocular pressure, which makes patients from visual field defect to blindness., High myopia is different from low myopia and moderate myopia. Its fundus has been diseased, which is easy to cause some complications and bring greater harm to patients. So, how much harm does high myopia cause? Can it lead to blindness? Ophthalmologists said that most of the complications of high myopia can cause blindness. It is the sixth leading blinding disease in China. So, will you be blind after high myopia? The answer is – possible!, Why is it that high myopia may be blind?, The world is so big, who can guarantee not to be blind?, Even if a person with eyesight of 2.0 can’t guarantee that he won’t be blind in the future! There are so many accidents in the world every day. Who can predict the future? No one can guarantee that he will not be blind, deaf or dumb in the future!, But: high myopia itself will not cause blindness! Any statement about blindness after high myopia is either ignorance or intimidation! Don’t say more than 600 degrees of myopia won’t be blind (in the absence of other diseases), even for the ultra-high myopia of one or two thousand degrees, no doctor said that they would be blind in the future. 2. The possibility of blindness caused by high myopia is higher than that of ordinary people. High myopia has the risk of blindness. In addition to the natural and human disasters with the same low probability as normal people, patients with high myopia have retinal detachment, glaucoma, maculopathy, cataract and post-mortem The risk of scleral staphyloma and other diseases is higher.,

high myopia is different from low myopia and moderate myopia. Its fundus has been diseased, which is easy to cause some complications and bring greater harm to patients. So, how much harm does high myopia cause? Can it lead to blindness? Ophthalmologists said that most of the complications of high myopia can cause blindness. It is the sixth leading blinding disease in China. So, will you be blind after high myopia? The answer is – possible!

why do you say that high myopia may be blind?

1 the world is so big, who can guarantee not to be blind?

even if a person with eyesight of 2.0 can’t guarantee that he won’t be blind in the future! There are so many accidents in the world every day. Who can predict the future? No one can guarantee that he will not be blind, deaf or dumb in the future!

but: high myopia itself will not cause blindness! Any statement about blindness after high myopia is either ignorance or intimidation! Don’t say that more than 600 degrees of myopia won’t be blind (without other diseases), that is, one or two thousand degrees of ultra-high myopia. No doctor says that they will be blind in the future?

2. High myopia is more likely to cause blindness than ordinary people’s

and

High myopia has the risk of blindness. In addition to natural and man-made disasters with the same low probability as normal people, patients with high myopia have a higher risk of retinal detachment, glaucoma, maculopathy, cataract, posterior scleral staphyloma and other diseases.

what are the blind killers?

1

retinal detachment

due to scleral expansion and retinal degeneration, the rate of net detachment in patients with high myopia is 7 to 8 times higher than that in normal people! Fortunately, compared with glaucoma and keratoconus, retinal detachment can be saved and can be treated by freezing, laser and laser surgery. Of course, parents should not be careless. If this is found late and not treated in time, it will also lead to permanent blindness. If it is not congenital abnormal eye development, net off is mainly related to overuse of the eye.

friends with high myopia should not stay up all night playing with electronic products, Do not exercise violently (including taking a roller coaster), lift less heavy objects, and try not to donate blood (the donation of patients with high myopia will lead to insufficient blood supply to the eyeball, which may cause net detachment). Net detachment symptoms of

and

: the mosquito disease is aggravated, the eyes seem to be covered by clouds and fog, there is a sense of flash during eye movement, the vision is deformed, and the vision suddenly decreases.

glaucoma

Studies in different countries have shown that the risk of glaucoma in myopia is 2 ~ 4 times higher than that in non myopia, and most friends with high myopia are open-angle glaucoma. Open angle glaucoma is a disease of irreversible damage to optic nerve and visual field caused by increasing intraocular pressure, which makes patients from visual field defect to blindness. The most terrible thing about

and

is that patients with open-angle glaucoma usually have no symptoms in the early stage and their eyes are not painful or itchy. Many people find it only during routine physical examination, which is already in the middle and late stage. They even cover one eye one day and find that the other eye is blind, and the treatment effect of late glaucoma is poor.

and

can be controlled if they are found early, treated actively and adjusted. Therefore, friends with high myopia and blindness can check the fundus, IOP and visual field every year or half a year, especially those with diabetes, hypertension, hypotension and vascular diseases.

cataract

friends with high myopia reduce the permeability of lens capsule due to prolonged ocular axis, fundus degenerative lesions and abnormal intraocular nutrition metabolism, resulting in cataract. However, this cataract usually develops slowly, but don’t take it lightly.

and

ophthalmology hospital experts remind: Although the risk of these diseases is high for high myopia, it does not mean that it will be, but it is higher than that of normal people. Even if the risk is high, the proportion of glaucoma patients in patients with high myopia is low.
