Abstract: in addition to genetic factors, the heavy eye burden and unscientific eye habits in modern society are the main reasons for the increase of myopia in adolescence. During the period of rapid height development, the degree of myopia often increases rapidly. In addition to genetic factors, the heavy eye burden and unscientific eye habits in modern society are the main reasons for the increase of myopia in
adolescents. If the child’s vision drops, parents should seize the time to go to a formal glasses fitting institution for the child to be examined, and ask professionals to help formulate an appropriate correction plan.
one of the misunderstandings of myopia correction: children are too young. Don’t wear myopia glasses.
often have children who squint at people and objects. When the doctor suggested wearing glasses, many parents would say, “I don’t want my child to wear glasses at such a young age. I can’t take them off.”
many parents rely on their subjective feelings or their feelings of wearing glasses, or hearsay, and believe that some children had better not wear glasses when they are young. This is unscientific. Children are in a critical period of visual development. To ensure complete and sound vision, the most important thing is that both eyes can see a clear retinal imaging at the same time. If myopia is not corrected in time, long-term retinal blurred image will induce further lengthening of ocular axis, increase myopia, and even lead to weak and strabismus; On the other hand, it will also affect children’s psychological development and learning, which is manifested in the reduction of interest in new things outside the world, the narrowing of the scope of life, and the serious ones will affect their intellectual development.
therefore, if it is true myopia, it is recommended to wear glasses early. Of course, if it is pseudomyopia, it is another matter.
the second misunderstanding of myopia correction: the more myopia glasses are changed, the higher
many parents are unwilling to recheck and match glasses for their children, but they do not know that this is harmful to their children’s myopia. True myopia is mostly axial myopia. In fact, the axis of the eye becomes longer, or the eyeball becomes larger. Children need to change suitable clothes when they grow tall, and a pair of suitable shoes when their feet grow up. Children’s eyeballs become larger, and they also need a pair of glasses with the right degree.
the reasons for the increase of myopia in adolescence are not only genetic factors, but also the heavy eye burden and unscientific eye habits in modern society. During the period of rapid height development, the degree of myopia often increases rapidly. Therefore, on the basis of scientific and reasonable correction, whether the myopia degree increases has nothing to do with whether to replace glasses. Experts suggest that teenagers should have an optical examination every 3 ~ 6 months and regularly monitor the changes of vision. If the corrected vision is too low, the optometry shall be conducted again, and the glasses with appropriate diopter shall be replaced.
myopia correction misunderstanding 3: myopia glasses can not be matched too clearly. The complete correction of
myopia is to correct myopia as squareness, so as to restore the inherent normal relationship between adjustment and collection.
wear low correction glasses for a long time, and the eyes do not need to adjust or use less adjustment when looking at near objects. In order to maintain single vision of both eyes, the visual axes of both eyes must be assembled, so that the relationship between adjustment and assembly will be disordered. If you make the adjustment close to the collection, there will be excessive adjustment, resulting in ciliary muscle spasm, that is, artificially increasing the degree of myopia; On the other hand, the collection is close to regulation, that is, it develops to low collection, resulting in the imbalance of extraocular muscle strength. When the imbalance of muscle strength cannot be maintained, the binocular visual function will be destroyed. Only one eye can see things, and the other eye tends to the outside, becoming temporary alternating exotropia. The optometrist will give reasonable glasses according to the child’s visual function. Parents should not intervene blindly.
myopia correction misunderstanding 4: blindly believing in various “treatment”,
in order to not wear glasses or less length Treatments (massage, acupuncture, etc.) have deceived many parents. From a scientific point of view, these treatments are often helpful to relieve eye fatigue and restore vision of pseudomyopia.
