Can long-term wear contact lens increase myopic degree?
With the advent of contact lenses, many people abandoned the traditional clunky frames and began to use convenient and beautiful contact lenses.However, many myopic patients in wearing contact lenses after a period of time found that the degree of both eyes increased, this is really the use of contact lenses caused by it?
In fact, the degree of myopia in most adults has basically stabilized, whether wearing glasses or contact lenses will not change too much, so even if often wearing contact lenses will not deepen the degree.So, what causes the increase in degrees?
Most likely, there is a chronic problem with overuse of the eyes.Constantly looking at an electronic screen in close proximity, or reading or writing in dim light, can strain the eye muscles.The eye is tense for a long time and the lens does not relax and rest. The direct result is an increase in strength.
The vast majority of myopia is inherited, especially in parents with high myopia. Their children may be unable to control the increase of myopia even if they strictly control the use of their eyes in adulthood. Instead, wearing appropriate glasses can effectively slow the increase of myopia.
Whether glasses or contact lenses, if the degree of myopia is affecting daily life, it must be corrected by wearing glasses.However, if the lens degree is not appropriate, there are insufficient correction or over-correction problems, can also increase the degree of myopia.
Therefore, when buying contact lenses, we must correctly match glasses according to the results of the evaluation and examination, and also keep a good habit of using eyes, and strive to create a reasonable environment with eyes, so as to really control the growth of degree.
