Staying up late to brush your phone and smash your eyes? Doctor reminds: people with myopia should pay attention to the National Day holiday

It’s a holiday, I stay up late at night to catch up on dramas and games, and even when I’m lying in bed and brushing my mobile phone, I don’t grasp it firmly for a while, and the mobile phone hits my face… The National Day holiday is coming, it’s inappropriate The behavior of using the eyes will cause a huge burden on the eyes, resulting in eye astringency, eye fatigue and even eye diseases. Wang Hu, director of the Fundus Disease Department of Dongguan Aier Eye Hospital, reminded that the myopia group is growing day by day, and most people don’t pay much attention to protecting their eyes and staring at the mobile phone for a long time. Improper eye behavior will greatly increase the probability of retinal detachment.

Lying down and being hit by the phone in the left eye, “lightning” appears in front of my eyes

At the beginning of September, Ms. Xu from Houjie had a high degree of myopia of 700 degrees. She likes to shop online and watch dramas on her mobile phone. One morning, Ms. Xu, who was lying in bed, picked up her mobile phone. Look, who knew that I didn’t hold it firmly, it just hit the left eye, and the pain was so painful that tears flowed, and when I opened my eyes again, my vision was blurred, “It flashes like a light bulb, there is a layer of fog blocking the line of sight, and I still see vaguely. There are black spots in front of me.” Thinking that this was not the first time she was smashed by a mobile phone, Ms. Xu didn’t take it seriously.

However, it didn’t take long for Ms. Xu to feel that there was a large shadow at the corner of her left eye. No matter how much she blinked or rubbed her eyes, it was useless, which seriously affected her daily work, so she rushed to Dongguan Aier Eye Clinic after get off work. Hospital emergency. The fundus doctor’s examination found that Ms. Xu’s left eye caused vitreous hemorrhage due to trauma. It is recommended that surgery be treated as soon as possible. If the hemorrhage is not treated as soon as possible, it may further lead to retinal detachment. .

Using a mobile phone for long periods of time for work can lead to “off the Internet”

Coincidentally, uncle Ming from Shatian, Dongguan, also suffered from eye disease caused by poor eye behavior. It is understood that Uncle Ming works in logistics. He usually uses his mobile phone to follow up more information, and he works for up to 12 hours almost every day. On September 3, when he was working until 3:00 in the morning, he suddenly felt his eyes were hot and his vision dropped sharply…

The next morning, I went to the hospital for treatment, and was diagnosed by Wang Hu, the director of the Fundus Disease Department. Uncle Ming’s eyes were highly myopic of 800 degrees, and his vision in the right eye was only 50cm. There was a huge hole above the retina. It curls downward, involving the macula, and a 1.5PD-sized horseshoe-shaped hole is seen below. Immediate admission to the hospital for surgical treatment is recommended to avoid traction retinal detachment. Wang Hu pointed out that once retinal detachment occurs, the patient’s peripheral visual field and central vision will decline rapidly in a short period of time. If not treated in time, it will cause permanent vision loss.

The two patients sought medical attention in a timely manner. After a week of inpatient surgery, they were successfully discharged from the hospital in mid-September, and their vision is expected to improve steadily in the later period. They all said that they would not dare to use their eyes willfully in the future and should take good care of them. “It feels terrible to be covered by a dark shadow in front of your eyes.”

Ordinary people stay up all night, look at their mobile phones for a long time, or even get hit in the eyes by mobile phones. Will they also face the risk of inducing Internet disconnection? Wang Hu explained that the above behaviors are all unhealthy eye behaviors and should be avoided as much as possible. Especially for myopic people, their eye axis is longer than normal people. The higher the degree of myopia, the more obvious the extent of eye axis elongation. After the eye axis is elongated, the thickness of the retina becomes thinner. In addition, the eyes are used intensively every day or the eyes are subjected to external forces. , the probability of retinal tears and detachment is naturally higher than that of normal people.

Physician Reminder: The following eye emergencies require immediate medical attention

The National Day holiday is approaching, Wang Hu reminded that during the holidays in previous years, the department received many patients with sudden eye trauma and retinal detachment. For some ophthalmological emergencies such as eye trauma, eye redness and pain with vision loss (such as keratitis, glaucoma, iritis and other intraocular inflammation), painless sharp decline in vision, visual distortion, visual field defect, fixed dark shadow in front of the eyes, etc. To pay attention, you should go to the hospital as soon as possible. At the same time, it is recommended that people with myopia check the fundus every six months to a year to exclude fundus diseases.
