Modern medicine every year is getting better and better thanks to the emergence and development of new methods of diagnosis and treatment, a powerful hardware, new products. However, there are many diseases that are difficult to cure, and in some cases even impossible. So, despite the apparent lack, myopia is a problem, solve that not always it turns out – acquired myopia often is treated with modern techniques.
Especially important is the prevention of the disease, if we take into account that the problem is more social than medical. Almost half of today’s schoolchildren are suffering myopia because the adults do not pay timely attention to the disturbing symptoms. Among the consequences of this can be seen not only by poor eyesight, but also some psychological problems are difficult to perceive the need to wear glasses, ashamed of what they see and bad can significantly affect self-esteem.
Myopia is a pathological distortion of the eyeball, the reasons for which no one has yet identified. At first, your child may experience spasm of accommodation – the muscle, which is responsible for the sharpness. Then, as a result of prolonged overvoltage, it is difficult to muscle relax and eyesight begins to deteriorate. If the eyes are the regular load, gradually progressing nearsightedness. If the spasm will be eliminated gradually, vision can be restored.
To prevent the problem of the child need to regularly lead to ophthalmologist – at least twice a year. You can check the baby’s eyesight and yourself, which will need special test table, which can be purchased in a store or on any Internet website. Table to hang at home, ensure good lighting. If a child has vision 20/20, he easily sees the tenth row from a distance of five meters. The scan will be performed for each eye separately. Quite often such manipulation and in kindergarten, that allows to detect eye disease at early stages.
Of great importance and the way of life is a child. In order to save sight, do not allow it to sit for a long time on TV or on the computer. Watch small children can be a maximum of one hour per day, staying away from the screen at a distance of at least a few feet away. With regard to the computer, then a small child generally is not allowed to use them, because so far the need in finding the information you need to study. Students can spend no more than one monitor to two hours throughout the day (with interruptions), and only on request. Computer games should be deleted (removed from the computer, password protected, etc.) – they don’t bring any good, but take time and strongly affect the eyesight of children.
