Worry! Children are short-sighted but dare not tell their parents~~

Abstract: children before the age of six or seven are low-grade hyperopia, and their refractive state will change with the development of the eyeball, so our common myopia can be predicted in advance. In order to understand the refractive changes of children in detail, find abnormal refractive development in time, take children for refractive examination regularly, and establish perfect refractive development files.

why didn’t mom and dad find out earlier?

because there’s one thing you certainly haven’t done for your child – establish a refractive development file!

the pediatric ophthalmologist of our hospital suggested that children should have a comprehensive optometry every year from the age of 3 to 6 and establish refractive development files. The refractive development file is to make a refractive development evaluation for the child’s eyes to see if the child has myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.

parents note that these small movements are a precursor to children’s myopia

1 Squint to see things: when squinting, the eyelids can block part of the pupils, which can reduce the scattering of light, so as to temporarily improve and improve vision. Therefore, when children read books and watch TV, they often squint, so they should be careful to suffer from myopia.

  2. Looking at things with crooked head: looking at objects with crooked head can reduce the impact of scattered light on vision. Therefore, some babies will look at things with crooked head in the early stage of myopia.

  3. Frequent blinking: when children can’t see clearly, they will blink frequently, because frequent blinking can alleviate myopia and increase visual acuity to a certain extent.

  4. Love to rub the eyes: when the eyes are not in time, we will rub the eyes in case we can’t see clearly, but if children often rub the eyes, we should be vigilant against myopia.

  5. Strabismus: when a child’s vision drops rapidly in one eye, he will mainly use the other normal eye. Some children with myopia will also be combined with strabismus.

  6. Frown: frowning often will make the extraocular muscles compress the eyeball, reverse stimulate the eye muscles and accelerate the formation of myopia.

  7. Pulling the corners of the eyes: after suffering from myopia, some babies often pull their corners of the eyes outward with their hands, because doing so can have the same effect as tilting their heads and squinting their eyes.
