Myths About Myopic Eyes, Or Minus Eyes, And Here Are the Facts That Have Been Revealed

Myopia is a form of eye refractive error. In nearsightedness, the patient cannot see distant objects clearly. In fact, these objects can be clearly seen by people from normal vision.

  Nearsightedness is a common vision problem experienced by most people. In Indonesia, a study published in Arvo magazine involving 337 respondents aged 6-15 years resulted in the finding that 32.3 percent of respondents experienced nearsightedness. It is estimated that by 2050, 50 percent of the human population on earth will experience myopia!

   Myopia (nearsightedness) is caused by the structure of the eyeball is too long or the cornea is too curved. This condition causes the light captured by the eye to be focused in front of the retina, making distant objects look blurry.

   There are many myths about distance or myopia. However, they are not easy to believe, because the myths prove not necessarily true. Here are some myths about myopia, along with facts:

1. Myopia occurs only in children
  Myopia usually develops in childhood, when growth is still ongoing. However, myopia can also occur in adults. For one thing, the habit of seeing things at very close range.

   Not only that, adults with certain diseases such as diabetes, can also be affected by myopia. As we age, our eyes get weaker. Not surprisingly, when we go to the eye doctor, minus the eye will grow over time.
2. Glasses can worsen myopia

 Glasses and contact lenses are a way to help patients with myopia see clearly. These tools cannot treat myopia, but also make myopia worse. Conversely, glasses and contact lenses actually avoid eye damage due to the condition of myopia that is not treated.

   Note, farsightedness still worsens despite having to wear glasses or contact lenses. However, it is not caused by the use of this tool, it is a genetic condition or a daily habit.

3. Glasses must be worn continuously, otherwise it will get worse!
   The lens is a visual aid, but does not affect the health of wearing glasses. Goggles do not affect the increase or decrease of the cylinder less.

  He explained that if the glasses do not wear glasses, then all things will be out of focus and the eyes will be forced to work harder to focus on the object. Eyes are forced to work hard to continue complaints of accommodation quickly becoming tired and lifting headaches, eye pain and blurred vision.

   But this will not cause long-term damage to the eyes. Glass will help you see better without having to work hard. Using eye glasses, it doesn't deteriorate quickly, but not using a lens doesn't permanently damage your eyes.

   However, this is only temporary and will not cause long-term damage to the eyes. Glass will help you see better without having to work hard. He does not use glasses, it will make your eyes uncomfortable.

4. Eat to cure blindness Many Carrots Away

Myopia (minus the eye) is known in medical terms as nearsightedness is a vision disorder in which the eye cannot see distant objects become visibly blurred to see distant objects. Myopia can occur due to changes in corneal curvature, interference with the lens of the eye or elongated axis of the eyeball.

   Carrot leaves and nutrients rich in vitamin A have been proven to be good for the eyes, but do not cure myopia. The role of vitamin A in carrots and eye health is to support the metabolism of nerve cells in the retina and prevent and treat eye disorders caused by vitamin A deficiency as xerophthalmia (dry eyes) or night blindness (blind in the dark of the day / night).

   Therefore, if the cause of blurred vision / impaired vitamin A deficiency, carrot consumption can help overcome this eye disorder, but if causing blurred vision is nearsighted, it must be resolved by using less vessels with glasses or contact lenses. Under certain circumstances, it may also be corrected for myopia surgery on the cornea including radial keratotomy, photorefractive keratectomy, Asissted Laser in interlamel Keratomilieusis from (LASIK).

   Carrots are also a rich source of vitamin A and beta-carotene which are good for the body naturally. Myth, often eating carrots can reduce our eyes a little. In fact, what fact really is?

   Although eating carrots, if possible, won't significantly improve vision, the Insight Vision Center's firmness page. Eating carrots every day will not sharpen vision and cannot correct optical defects such as astigmatism, glaucoma, myopia strabismus. wear glasses to guard to avoid at least more, rather than rely on consumption of many carrots, because they do not recognize validity.

5. Laser surgery is the ideal solution to overcome myopia
  Fragility can occur if the eyeball is too long or the cornea is too curved. or LASIK laser eye surgery can correct myopia caused by an abnormal form of the cornea, but it cannot improve the length of the eyeball.

   Therefore, even if you have to undergo laser surgery, you might still experience it if your nearsightedness is too long. However, after the form of corneal laser surgery for the true myopia state will be lighter.

   It is said that myopia cannot be cured. After the experiment, then short-sighted permanently. Another myth says that the only way to cure myopia is to do eye laser surgery. Is it really the most effective way?

   In fact, myopia occurs when the eyeball is too long or the cornea is too curved. Meanwhile, eye laser surgery cannot change the length of the eyeball, said the page from the Institute for eye myopia control in children. In addition, better methods of treating myopia are predicted in laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK).

6. Myopia occurs because of the way we use the eyes
   That said, myopia occurs because of the way we make mistakes in eye use. For example, often reading books or watching TV too close to gadgets and game rooms with little light. Is that true?

   In fact, myopia is caused by genetic and environmental factors. Studies in China and involved 2888 children show that children whose parents have the opportunity to experience the same high myopia. In the same way, research conducted in Australia and 2353 children participated. If both parents have myopia, and 43.6 percent of children will also experience what is published in Molecular Vision: Biology and Genetics Research in Vision.

7. Myopia occurs because of the wrong way to look
  This myth is true. A person can be affected by myopia so often see objects close for a long time, such as reading, sewing, or watching the screen gadget. However, genetic conditions also play an important role.

   If you often look closely, make sure to leave a distance of about 35 cm between the eye and the object being observed. You can also apply the 20-20-20 rule, which is every 20 minutes, a switch to see up to 20 feet (6 meters) for 20 seconds. If you have seen things close to 2 hours, you should rest your eyes for at least 15 minutes.

8. Wearing reading glasses or pinhole glasses can prevent farsightedness
   Many other myths are believed to wear glasses or pinhole glasses can prevent farsightedness. It is claimed that pinhole glasses can make vision clearer, reducing the amount of light entering the eye and causing pupils to constrict. Truly?

In fact, these glasses have no significant effect in preventing myopia. Conversely, these glasses will reduce the field of vision and cause us to crash into something more often or fall. So this is just a myth, huh!

9. Sleep early can prevent farsightedness in the eyes
  There is no scientific evidence that sleep early can help prevent myopia. No amount of sleep can affect one's risk of myopia, but daytime activities.

If you often sleep late at night for activities that require you to look at close range, such as games on the gadget screen or reading distance too close, of course, the risk of getting nearsightedness will be more.

10. Myopia in children disappears with age
   Eventually, even the myths that are believed to be shortsighted that occur in children will disappear with age. In fact, this is a myth. There is no evidence that farsightedness will not occur in adulthood, according to the Myopia Control Institute on the Children Eye page.

  On the contrary, what happens is that the remains of myopic eyes, and even increase are less regulated over time. So, before it's too late, consult an eye doctor and wear glasses, yes!

11. Glasses with a lower can reduce farsightedness
  This myth is not true. Wearing glasses with less energy glasses can cause discomfort, cause eyestrain, and increase the risk of amblyopia. Therefore, use glasses with the right lens strength, so you can see clearly and comfortably.

   Although there is no information about eye health and vision, do not believe the myth. Make sure that the doctor is the truth. To maintain your eye health, your eyes are regularly tested by an eye doctor. If you are nearsighted, regularly check your views as recommended by your doctor.

   Well, that's 7 myths and facts about nearsightedness. Now you know, myth and what is reality?
