Won’t myopia grow old?

Abstract: myopia is unable to see the distant objects and can see the near objects, while presbyopia is unable to see the distant objects as before. People who are not nearsighted do not need to wear glasses to see far away, and they need to wear presbyopic glasses to see near, while people who are originally nearsighted still need to wear corrective glasses to see far away, but not necessarily to see near.

as we all know, people will grow old. However, some people say that when you are young, you will not be old when you are old. Is this true?

in order to see different objects clearly, the human eye needs to continuously adjust the near and far objects through the eyes. When young, the lens has good elasticity and can see objects at different distances clearly. With the increase of age, the lens density also increases, the lens elasticity gradually decreases, and the adjustment range becomes smaller and smaller. Therefore, the objects near can not be seen clearly. The decline of the focusing ability of the eye itself is a normal aging degradation phenomenon. Presbyopia appears with it, which everyone can’t avoid, and it doesn’t belong to ametropia.

are popular. Myopia can’t see objects far away and can see objects near, while presbyopia can see objects far away and close as before. People who are not nearsighted do not need to wear glasses to see far away, and they need to wear presbyopic glasses to see near, while people who are originally nearsighted still need to wear corrective glasses to see far away, but not necessarily to see near. Because myopia and presbyopia can “offset” the part of seeing close, which does not mean that people with myopia have no presbyopia.

people can not be short-sighted and farsighted, but they can’t escape presbyopia. Presbyopia begins to appear around the age of 40. The elderly with presbyopic glasses must be examined by ophthalmologists in a regular hospital. After eliminating senile eye diseases, they can accurately optometry, and then choose appropriate glasses.

suggest that Laohua people go to the hospital for reexamination every 3-5 years. If they find vision loss and discomfort, they should go to a regular hospital in time.
