Mariana Kobzova, First MSMU n. a. I. M. Sechenov said that myopia is caused by excessive amount spent for computer time, often radically different from that caused by genetic factors. Myopia, caused by a need too long to look at the monitor, sometimes referred to as “false”.
As explained, the false myopia is caused by strain of the intraocular ciliary muscle, allowing the eye for a long time to focus at a close distance. Accurate statistics, according to Kobzova, at the moment, but experts suggest that it is this form of myopia in connection with the “computerization of the world” is by far the most common. Students, in their spare time sitting at a computer or playing phone during lessons should look into the textbooks, so in the modern world, people’s eyes sometimes almost have no opportunity to enjoy childhood. Get rid of false myopia easy — in order to recover visual acuity, enough to use eye drops prescribed by specialists, and fully restore ciliary muscle effectively help eye exercises and visual hygiene.
At the same time, if a person is predisposed to short-sightedness because of their genes, correct it is often only possible through surgery. It is noted that some related with vision genes are recessive, so sometimes parents have myopia are not suffering from can transfer a propensity for it to “inherited”.
Experts say that any people, regardless of how they are predisposed to myopia, should be periodically distracted from the computer monitor and look into the distance, as well as to monitor the lighting in the rooms where they are often.
