The worst bad habit before the age of 3 is not watching TV! you never noticed

"My 2-year-old was diagnosed with myopia". Qianqian's words from the editorial department aroused discussions among countless mothers in the group: God, how could such a young child be short-sighted? What caused it? Did you watch too much TV? Can it be cured? ... and many mothers quickly took out their mobile phones and searched for how to check their babies. Such a small baby has vision problems, which is really distressing. Qianqian said that children can only turn their backs to the TV and watch cartoons. Thinking of this, the old mother is really sad and funny. But this is not just an example. If you don’t believe it, let’s look further down. Let's take a look at the data of the National Health Commission! In 2020, the myopia rate of 6-year-old children in all parts of my country will exceed 9%. In other words, 1 in 10 children who go to kindergarten around them is short-sighted. This situation is still developing towards a younger age, and there have even been cases of more than 100 degrees of myopia in a 1-year-old baby and 900 degrees of myopia in a 2-and-a-half-year-old baby. (In addition to bad eye habits, 900 degrees of myopia at the age of 2 and a half may be related to genetics or eye diseases. Parents should take their children for examination in time) △ Source: People's Daily Weibo & Litchi News Why is it now Are children myopic so much? Many parents can't help but express this sigh. Young babies will be short-sighted, which is largely affected by "genetic factors". If one or both parents are short-sighted, the child is 2 to 5 times more likely to be short-sighted than those whose parents are not short-sighted. In addition, prolonged "seeing things at close range" and "lack of outdoor activities" will also increase the possibility of myopia in babies. So, how can prevention be effective? Don't worry, I'll have a good chat with you today. Myopia cannot be cured and recovered. What we can do is to delay the arrival of this event. Many parents think that the baby is still young and does not need to check the vision, but the fact is - when you go to the kindergarten for the physical examination, you have already found that there are hundreds of degrees of myopia. At that time, it will be too late to regret it. We still recommend that parents with the conditions take their babies to the hospital for eye examinations on a regular basis. (If the child health care and community inspections are not included, you can also make an appointment for the hospital inspection.) △ Source: National Health Commission If the baby is under 3 years old, squinting, rubbing his eyes, tilting his head, etc. If you have problems, or have other abnormalities, you should go to the ophthalmology department of the Maternal and Child Health Hospital or Children's Hospital for more detailed vision screening. Children around 3 years old can try to use the E-shape vision chart to check their vision. If there is a large difference in vision between the two eyes and the corrected vision is not up to standard, they can also go to the ophthalmology clinic for further diagnosis. It should be noted that the baby's vision will change, so parents cannot use the normal vision of adults as a judgment standard. △Source: Expert consensus on the prevention and treatment of amblyopia in children in China (2021) Since visual acuity measurement is a subjective examination that needs to be identified by the baby, many young babies will have sub-standard visual acuity measurement, and parents should not worry too much. It can be combined with the examination results of corneal curvature, eye axis, stereopsis, etc., and ask the doctor's advice before making a judgment. It has become a habit for many parents to use electronic products such as TVs, mobile phones, and iPads to play cartoons to soothe their babies. Be sure to pay attention: Babies under 18 months can't watch electronic products; Babies 2 to 5 years old should not spend more than 1 hour in front of the screen every day, and each viewing time should not exceed 15 minutes. Also need to remember the following 3 points! In addition, there may be many parents who think that electronic products will only damage the baby's eyesight. This is inaccurate, in fact, reading at close range for a long time increases the chance of myopia. Such as reading picture books, piano scores, playing with toys, painting, building Lego, etc. Many children play building blocks and puzzles, the particles are already very small, they need to look at the drawings and puzzles very closely, and often play for a few hours, which is very eye-catching. So when playing, you should also follow the "20-20-20" principle. A newborn baby has a short axial length and has a certain degree of hyperopia, which is what we call hyperopia reserve. After the distance vision reserve is gone, if the eye axis continues to lengthen, it will become myopia. Therefore, for the baby, distance vision reserve is a good thing, indicating that there is still room for myopia. It is as if there is a sum of money in the bank, and there are deposits to spend. Of course, the farsightedness reserve is not as much as possible. There is too much farsightedness and amblyopia, which also needs to be corrected early. Parents must take their babies and regularly check the hyperopia reserve. So how do we protect our distance vision reserves? The answer is that you can take your baby to do some outdoor activities. Some studies have found that ensuring 2 hours of outdoor activities a day has a significant effect on delaying the lengthening of the eye axis. Spending an extra hour outdoors a week reduces the chance of myopia by 2%. Now that the weather is getting warmer, parents can usually take their babies for a walk downstairs in the community. Remember to stagger when the sun is hot and choose mornings or afternoons when the sun is milder. If you still feel particularly sunburned, you can also choose to take your baby to play in the shade or under the shade of trees, which can also help prevent myopia. Weekends are also a great opportunity for outdoor activities. Hai Qi from the editorial department often takes her baby out for outings and camping. Now that the weather is hot, she even goes to the beach to play, which is a very good choice. Not a partial eclipse, eat more fruits and vegetables, maintain adequate nutrition, can make the baby's eyes develop better. The following three nutrients are very important. Parents can remember them and give their babies more food at ordinary times. Finally, I still want to vaccinate parents. The development of eyes is not like teeth, there is no second chance, once the baby's myopia is formed, it is too late to cry. Therefore, to protect the baby's eyes, we must start now.
