Handling Minus The Light?
Good evening doctor, I was convicted of being affected by a mild minus -1.5 right-same left … what I asked: 1. Is LASIK surgery the only way to recover from minus the eyes, including me in the mild category? 2. Is it tempered glass with anti-blue coating + blue ray filter feature on my cellphone is able to prevent minus my eyes from rising? Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically myopia or nearsightedness or also known as minus eye can occur because the shadow of objects that enter the eye falls in front of the eye's retina. This disorder occurs due to the shape of the eyeball that is too long or the shape of the cornea and / or lens that is too oval. Because this myopia occurs due to anatomic disorders of the eye, to be able to correct this disorder permanently, anatomic manipulation must also be done (one of them is by doing LASIK, the other way is by manipulating the shape of the cornea using corneal refractive therapy / orthokeratology). Although your myopia is classified as mild myopia, the use of glasses and contact lenses will not be able to correct your vision problems permanently, and there are no specific drugs or supplements that can cure this myopia.
There is no research that shows that exposure to blue light from a cellphone or computer will increase minus the eye, but excessive exposure to blue light can contribute to other eye disorders, such as eye fatigue (digital eye strain) and can increase the risk of macular degernation (which can cause blindness ). If indeed you see a lot of cellphone screens or work a lot in front of a computer, using glasses with a blue light filter can prevent disturbances in the eye, but it will likely have no effect on the minus of your eyes. Minus the eyes in general will not be more stable (no increase or decrease again) after the age of 20 years.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
