In the previous article, we discussed “How do I find sunglasses that fit over prescription glasses?”. In this article, let’s talk about “Can wearing the wrong prescription glasses damage your eyes?”.
Go to a regular hospital to check your eyes
On the surface, pseudo-myopia is the same as true myopia, that is, looking far away is blurred and near looking clearly. But looking at the essence through the phenomenon, the difference between the two is obvious. The so-called pseudo-myopia is due to frequent incorrect use of the eyes. The ciliary muscles continue to contract and spasm, and they cannot get the rest. And the crystals are also in a state of thickening. In this way, the parallel light from the outside enters the eye, and after the thickened lens chamber is flexed, the focus falls to the front of the retina, and it is naturally unclear to look at things in the distance. During this period, the eyeball has no organic changes. If you can take proper rest and treatment, pay attention to eye hygiene, use your eyes reasonably, and hope to restore normal vision. However, if the false myopia is not corrected and treated in time, it will develop into true myopia over time. There are many ways to treat pseudomyopia, mainly relaxation and adjustment, such as application of cycloplegia, acupuncture, physical therapy, improving the learning environment, paying attention to eye hygiene, and doing eye exercises. If you suspect false myopia, you should go to the hospital for an eye examination as soon as possible.(https://www.koalaeye.com/collections/eyeglasses)
Wear glasses normally after being fitted with glasses
If you have myopia and have been diagnosed as true myopia at the same time, and the degree is above 0 degrees, you should wear suitable myopia glasses for correction. Once equipped with glasses, you should wear them except for washing your face and sleeping, because myopia patients are in a state of emmetropia after wearing suitable glasses, and the natural relationship between adjustment and convergence is restored. Wearing glasses is not only to improve eyesight, but also to read and work within an appropriate distance, so that there is a normal coordination relationship between the adjustment of the eyes and the convergence function, and to avoid eye fatigue.
Wearing glasses correctly will not get deeper degrees
The development of myopia is not directly related to wearing glasses. Patients with myopia wear suitable glasses and pay attention to eye hygiene, and the degree of myopia will stabilize at a certain level. But if you think that with glasses, everything will be fine. If you don't pay attention to eye hygiene in normal times, if you continue to keep your eyes in a state of fatigue for a long time, it will lead to vision loss and deepening of myopia. In addition, wearing improper glasses such as no optometry or inaccurate optometry, too large power, will increase the burden on the eyes, reduce vision and deepen the power. For some people with high myopia (more than 600 degrees), although they insist on wearing glasses, the degree will still deepen, accompanied by changes in the fundus, which is medically called pathological myopia. This deepening of myopia is related to the degree of myopia and family and has nothing to do with wearing glasses.
