Myopia 350 degrees: assessment and analysis of severity


First, we need to understand what myopia is. Myopia, also known as “shortsightedness,” is a common vision problem in which parallel light rays focus in front of the retina without the need for adjustment, causing distant objects to appear blurry. The degree of myopia is usually represented by “D” (diopter), and 1D is equal to 1/100 meters.

So, is 350 degrees myopia serious? This question needs to be answered from the following aspects:

1. Grading of myopia degree

According to the degree of myopia, myopia can be divided into mild, moderate and high myopia. Generally speaking, -0.25D to -3.00D is mild myopia, -3.25D to -6.00D is moderate myopia, and above -6.25D is high myopia. Therefore, myopia of 350 degrees is considered moderate myopia.

2. The impact of moderate myopia

Moderate myopia has relatively little impact on daily life, study and work, but the following points still need to be noted:

(1) Decreased vision: Moderate myopia will cause distant objects to look blurry, affecting normal vision requirements. Without correction with glasses or contact lenses, further vision loss may occur.

(2) Eye fatigue: Reading or using the computer at close range for a long time can easily lead to eye fatigue and symptoms such as dry eyes, astringent eyes, and blurred vision.

(3) Increased risk of complications: Patients with moderate myopia have a relatively high risk of developing eye diseases such as glaucoma and cataracts. In addition, patients with high myopia may also suffer from serious complications such as retinal detachment and macular hole.

3. Prevention and control measures

For patients with moderate myopia, the following measures can be taken for prevention and control:

(1) Check your vision regularly: It is recommended to have an eye examination every six months or one year to detect and deal with vision problems in time.

(2) Use your eyes rationally: Maintain good eye-using habits, avoid using your eyes at close range for a long time, and take appropriate rest and relaxation at regular intervals.

(3) Wear glasses or contact lenses: According to the doctor’s advice, choose suitable glasses or contact lenses for correction to reduce the burden on the eyes.

(4) Pay attention to nutrition: maintain a balanced diet and consume more foods rich in vitamins A, C, E and zinc that are good for the eyes.

(5) Carry out outdoor activities: Carry out more outdoor activities and increase the time your eyes are exposed to natural light, which will help prevent the development of myopia.
