The Study on Risk Factors of Myopia
knowledge of vision care
Myopia has been listed as the one of the top ten priority eye diseases by World Health Organization (WHO). Therefore, knowing the related risk factors of myopia is a worthwhile topic for further research. This study is to examine the impacts of hereditary factors as well as environmental factors to myopia progression. Also, the knowledge of vision care of the myopic patients and their parents were evaluated to see if it’s correlated to the myopia progression. This study was based on a questionnaire survey conducted on children under the age of 20 and their parents, and adult myopic patients. It appeared that children with high myopic parents were more likely to be myopic. Also, excessive long period time of nearwork and study, and living in urban areas were also factors related to myopia progression. The more frequent use of 3C products would aggregate the myopia progression. In contrast, the more physical exercise they engaged, and the longer time of sleep they had, the less likely they were myopic. The better knowledge of vision care of the parents, the less myopic their children were. The earlier onset of myopia, the more myopic they were, and the more annually progression of their myopia were also noted. Therefore, we suggest that adequate outdoor activities, enough sleep, and better knowledge of vision care are important factors to avoid myopia progression.
