During the summer vacation, the ophthalmic treatment halls of major hospitals were crowded.
Nearly 90 percent of the time, parents take their children to have their eyesight checked and see more and more "small glasses".
Doctors remind parents that myopia can be reduced, but not completely cured.
It is important to develop good eye habits from an early age.
More children are going to eye clinics in the summer
In the early morning of the 22nd, despite the heavy rain, the hall of the eye hospital of Xi city's first hospital was crowded with parents and children before 9 o 'clock.
Some parents told reporters that it is not good to take time off due to the pressure of study.
They can only take their children to the hospital during the summer vacation.
Xiao xiao started school on the first day of the first month.
That day, her mother, Ms. Chen, brought her daughter to examine her eyes.
"The child is 12 years old and is already over 700 degrees short-sighted at a very young age.
In the past, we focused on our children's achievements and neglected to protect our eyes."
Every summer and winter, children get together to wear glasses, said zhang, director of the eye and optometry center of Xi first hospital.
Recently, more than 1,400 people, mostly primary school students, were enrolled in their clinic every day.
They also reduced waiting times by increasing the number of outpatient clinics and doctors.
With the abundance of electronic products, children spend more time in close proximity, zhang said.
This kind of bad eye usage habit can cause eyestrain, and promote or aggravate myopia occurrence.
Zhang said that some organizations claim that myopia can be completely cured by various methods, which also leads some parents to misunderstand, leading some irregular organizations to choose to look at children's eyes, which delays children's treatment.
Once myopia occurs, there is currently no way to reverse and completely cure it.
While studying, close your eyes and take a break at least every 40 minutes.
It is reported that myopia in today's children is closely related to increased school load, the use of electronic products and bad eye habits.
What details do parents need to pay attention to to protect their children's eyes?
Wei wei, director of the laser myopia treatment center in Xi city's first hospital, warned that developing good eye habits as a child is the key to preventing myopia.
Parents must correct the child's wrong writing posture, do not lie down or tilt the head to write, it is best to use anti-myopia pen to correct the wrong posture.
When reading, keep your back straight and your head at least 33 centimeters away from the book.
Adjust your study time, close your eyes, and take breaks at least every 40 minutes.
Don't write in bright light and sunlight, don't read or write in rickety cars, and don't play with your phone when the lights are off at night.
Ensure eye hygiene and do not wipe your eyes with unwashed hands.
Do eye exercises and massage your eyes to relieve tense eye muscles.
To ensure half an hour of outdoor activity each day, outdoor activities help shift the distance between near and far visual objects and relax the eyes.
Eat foods that are good for your eyes, such as blueberries, carrots and fish.
Blueberries contain more anthocyanins, which have antioxidant properties, protect the retina from damage from ultraviolet and blue light, and are effective in preventing cataracts.
Carotenoids in carrots can be converted into vitamin A in the body, with the role of preventing night blindness.
DHA, found in fish, protects the health of the retina.
Don't let children play with their phones for long after the lights are turned off at night.
In addition, during the summer vacation, children will inevitably look at mobile phones or other electronic devices.
Wei warns parents and teens that if they spend too much time on their phones after turning off the lights at night, it can cause ciliary muscle contraction, dilated pupils, increased intraocular pressure, glaucoma and even permanent blindness.
The leading cause of eye injuries is the light-emitting diode display.
Led refers to the led, is a kind of energy saving, long life of the cold light source.
Led technology is widely used in mobile phone screens, TV screens, billboards, headlights and so on.
However, the blue light from leds can cause two kinds of damage to the eye.
One is eye surface injury, induced dry eyes, dry eyes, discomfort, such as open symptoms.
The second kind causes fundus damage, induces macular degeneration, central visual detachment, etc.
In addition, staring at the blue screen of your phone for a long time can easily cause your body clock to get out of whizz and disrupt your sleep.
How can we reduce the damage of mobile phones to eyes?
Wei wei gives some advice: try not to use your phone in the dark, and adjust the brightness of your phone when using it.
Don't look at your phone for more than 45 minutes. It's best to rest your eyes for 10 minutes.
Keep about 40 centimeters away from your phone or computer screen.
