Some people say: the more glasses are worn, the deeper myopia is! I can't take it off when I wear it! Some people also say: not wearing glasses in time is the key to causing deep myopia!

So, who is right?

After wearing glasses, will it aggravate the degree of myopia? No

The occurrence of myopia is mainly related to the excessive elongation of the anterior and posterior axis of the eyeball, resulting in the object can not be accurately focused on the retina, but only focused on the front of the retina, so the nearsighted person is a blur when looking at distant objects, and only slightly better when looking at near objects.

The function of glasses is to help the myopic eyeball to accurately focus the object on the retina when looking at the object, so that the eye can become clearer when looking at the object.

Some parents are worried that after their children wear glasses, they will rely on glasses, and they will not be able to take off their glasses in the future, and even make their eyesight worse and worse, without wearing glasses, they will slowly recover after growing up.

First of all, it can be judged whether it is true myopia or pseudomyopia through the method of mydriasis.

 

If the presence of myopia is confirmed after dilated pupils, it proves that glasses are needed for correction.

 

If it is only pseudo-myopia, you can restore your vision by resting and sleeping, without the need to wear glasses. Because pseudomyopia is a phenomenon that causes vision loss due to prolonged use of the eyes at close range.

In fact, once it is true myopia, the anterior and posterior axes of the eyeball are irreversible after the anterior axis of the eyeball becomes longer, so do not take the chance to think that myopia does not wear glasses, and the vision will slowly recover.

Therefore, wearing appropriate glasses in time can reduce eye fatigue, eye muscle tension and other discomforts and slow down the progression of myopia. What needs to be reminded here is that in order to accurately detect the true refractive state of myopic eyes, before dispensing glasses, it is best to take your child to the ophthalmology department of a regular hospital for examination to determine what degree of myopia, possible causes or main causative factors the eyes belong to. In order to facilitate the wearing of appropriate glasses and the development of prevention and control plans for the subsequent aggravation of myopia.

 

The so-called glasses are worn more and more myopia, and they cannot be taken off when they are worn, which is not the fault of the glasses, but caused by continuous loss of vision, which is a normal physiological phenomenon.

NoWill the number of glasses increase? Yes!

If you do not wear glasses after myopia, the child will often squint his eyes because he can't see things clearly, and when squinting his eyes to see things for a long time, he can aggravate the fatigue and tension of the eye muscles, so that the speed of myopia progression is accelerated, so that the speed of myopia exacerbation is faster, such as small age and not wearing glasses in time, as well as more serious vision problems such as amblyopia and strabismus.

Due to the loss of vision caused by refractive error, it is necessary to wear glasses in time. Wearing glasses with the right amount of weight can effectively control the development of myopia.

 

If you are really short-sighted, and you do not correct it in time, looking close and far will have some impact. At this time, a lot of adjustment is required, resulting in more fatigue in the eyes, so that the degree will grow faster.

 

Can I control the degree of myopia with glasses? Not necessarily!

In general, as long as the glasses are worn correctly, it will not increase the degree of myopia. However, vision loss is also related to reasons such as not paying attention to eye hygiene and wearing glasses that are not appropriate.

 

Therefore, myopia patients wear glasses is not equivalent to entering the "safe" is safe, if you do not pay attention to eye hygiene and scientific eyes, or even borrow other people's glasses to wear, then the degree of myopia will continue to deepen. In addition, some myopia is hereditary and progressive.

After wearing glasses for a long time, the eyes will be deformed? No

For this point, many long-term wear glasses friends may have a deep understanding, after taking off the glasses, feel the eyeball bulge, it seems very unnatural, so many people feel that this is the disaster caused by wearing glasses. Glasses but do not carry this "pot": as mentioned earlier, myopia occurs because the eye axis becomes longer, the longer the axis becomes, the deeper the degree of myopia, when the eye axis becomes longer, it is impossible to grow to the back of the bony orbit, only to grow forward, which is why we see highly myopic people's eyes will protrude forward.

Therefore, the eye is protruding from the degree of myopia, rather than long-term glasses, that is, glasses do not have such a "power" can make people's eyes deformed, for people with high myopia, even if they do not wear glasses, the eyeballs will also be deformed.
