    Should teachers/ lecturers have myopia surgery ?

    4 November, 2023

    Many people working in education often hesitate before surgery for myopia due to fear of high work intensity, or having to look at documents leading to nearsightedness. However, this problem can be solved by choosing the right surgical method and using the eye properly.

    Let’s immediately find out why people working in education should have myopia surgery and how to prevent re-occurrence through the article below!

    Benefits of myopia surgery for people working in education

    Better interaction with students

    When wearing glasses, the patient’s vision is limited by 2 lenses on the eye. Myopia surgery will help teachers get a broader view and better interact with each student.

    See details clearly without glasses

    The teacher’s daily work includes: preparing lesson plans, grading papers, reading documents, detecting and correcting mistakes for students, … With the nature of that work, a pair of glasses scratched, dirty, not correct degree can cause difficulty in reading text or misreading information. Performing myopia surgery will give patients clear vision, unobstructed by lenses. Thereby improving work efficiency and avoiding significant errors.

    Get rid of the inconvenience of wearing glasses

    With high work intensity, teachers often have to wear glasses for a long time, maybe up to 8-12 hours a day. Eyeglass frames may slip or shift when the patient moves or bends down while working. Some frames when not suitable for the face size can cause pain in the temples or marks on the bridge of the nose. This not only affects the appearance but also adversely affects the health and quality of teaching.

    Preventing re-appearance of myopia for people working in education

    Although accounting for a very small percentage, re-occurrence after myopia surgery can still occur for a number of reasons as follows:

    • Perform surgery during an unstable stage of refraction, such as under 18 years of age, pregnant or just had a baby.
    • The selection of surgical methods is not reasonable, the remaining cornea after surgery is too thin, not enough to ensure safety for the eyes.
    • The habit of using eyes is unscientific after surgery.

    People working in education, with the characteristics of their jobs having to regularly read documents, the quality of vision can be affected for a number of reasons:

    • Eyes must focus on near vision for a long time, leading to accommodation fatigue.
    • Blinking less often causes dry eyes. Statistics show that when focusing on work, the frequency of blinking is reduced by 60% compared to normal, making the amount of tears secreted not enough to keep the cornea moist.

    The risk of relapsing myopia can be controlled by the following solutions:

    1. Give your eyes a periodic break during work by applying the 20/20/20 rule (for every 20 minutes of work, give your eyes a 20-second break by closing your eyes or looking 20 feet)

    2. Make sure the workspace is well-lit, use yellow light to soften the eyes.

    3. Set the appropriate eye-to-document distance, preferably about an arm’s length, ie about 60cm.

    4. Add artificial tears to moisturize the eyes.

    5. Wear blue light-blocking glasses when working with electronic devices.

    6. Get enough sleep (7 – 8 hours a day).

    7. The diet is full of nutrients.
