Treatment of myopia

Surgical treatment

At present, there are excimer laser (PRK), radial keratotomy (RK) and other posterior scleral reinforcement, not suitable for under 18 years of age, the degree of young people are not stable.

Drops of eye drops

We often see all kinds of "governance syrup drop short-sightedness" of advertising, which is the main component of atropine after the horse.

Expert advice: atropine eye drops after the horse through the ciliary muscle relaxation, so that a flat lens diopter reduced, so that can be treated precisely as a result of ciliary muscle spasm sustained contraction caused by changing convex lens, such as changes in dioptre increase will pseudo-myopia corrected to address the state, but its true myopia treatment has no effect. But also in quality syrup uncertain circumstances, not the best.

Orthokeratology (ok mirror) in the treatment of myopia
Orthokeratology technology (orthokeratology) is gradually developed in recent decades a non-surgical method for treatment of myopia by wearing rigid gas permeable contact lens (RGP) to increase the radius of curvature of the cornea surface to reduce the corneal refractive. With the upgrading of RGP lenses, and its safety, effectiveness and rapid further enhanced.

Advantages: the night to wear during the day and pick a mirror, sports will not be affected; appearance; can be corrected is less than 300 degrees of myopia, astigmatism less than 150 degrees; for people over the age of 7 to wear, the age limit for less.

Expert advice: This treatment is not mature. OK mirror in a short period of time can not wear glasses; lens cleaning and ease of loading and unloading with the soft contact lens; belts early keratitis occur often.

A variety of therapeutic apparatus

Market in recent years the treatment of many types of apparatus, its design principle nothing more than to relax the application of regulation or in some way to stimulate the eye in order to improve the ciliary muscle function.

Expert advice: Instrument design has reached the intended target, and there is no objective basis for measuring the effect in time for the standards are based on visual acuity, and the impact of visual inspection of many factors, such as the eyes open and eyes closed, hard to regulate and arbitrary regulation, such as and so can cause changes in vision, therefore, there is no objective and accurate assessment of an instrument approach the actual results.
