China News Service, Beijing, June 22 (Reporter Yan Xiaohong) Humans are the first to attack cataracts, myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. The presbyopia surgery correction is called the most difficult "last frontier" by the ophthalmology community. At present, China's presbyopia surgery correction technology is synchronizing with the world, and it is intended to fully open the "era of lens extraction".
The reporter was informed on the 22nd that the Chinese ophthalmology agency Aier Ophthalmology announced at the new eye removal surgery product launch: it will promote the refractive surgery department to open the presbyopia surgery clinic, and officially established by China, the United States, Europe, Singapore and other world-renowned The expert guidance group of the new lens removal surgery composed of experts in the field of refraction and cataracts, using Synchronous International's corneal laser correction and intraocular lens replacement presbyopia surgery correction technology, led the domestic presbyopia surgery correction to open the "era extraction era, this move also It will fill the gap of domestic presbyopia patients through surgical correction to achieve the vision needs of long, medium and near full range.
According to reports, "presbyopia" is also known as "presbyopia". With age, the lens hardens, the elasticity weakens, and the contraction of the ciliary muscles decreases. As a result, the adjustment decreases, and the near point moves far, so it is difficult to see objects at close range.
"Unlike myopia or cataracts, presbyopic patients usually do not take the initiative to seek medical treatment and conduct professional eye examinations. They generally choose not to wear or wear presbyopic glasses at will. If they do not undergo prescribing optometry, they will buy presbyopia lenses themselves." Current National Health Professor Wang Zheng, the lead drafter of the industry standard "Quality Control of Excimer Laser Corneal Refractive Surgery" released by the Ministry of Medicine, deputy director of the Special Committee for Refractive Surgery of the Ophthalmologist Branch of the Chinese Medical Doctor Association, and doctoral tutor of the Aier School of Ophthalmology, Central South University It was emphasized at the meeting that the wrong way of coping will make the eyes fatigue for a long time, which may lead to accelerated aging of the crystals. In developing countries, 94% of uncorrected visual impairment is due to presbyopia. "Patients with presbyopia generally believe that presbyopia can't be cured without treatment, and the lack of correct cognition that they can obtain visual quality improvement through active surgical intervention is the biggest challenge to improve the visual health of presbyopia patients."
Survey data shows that there are currently nearly 1.8 billion presbyopia patients in the world, and China has 146 million presbyopia. The "National Visual Health Report" pointed out that visual impairment has become a major public health problem in our country, and cataracts and presbyopia are even more important factors that threaten our national visual health.
The 45th Statistical Report on Internet Development in China shows that as of March 2020, the number of Internet users in my country reached 904 million, and the number of mobile phone Internet users reached 897 million. Among the netizens, 50-year-old and Internet users account for 16.9% of the total, and the number exceeds 150 million.
"The 150 million Internet users over the age of 50 happen to be a group with a high incidence of presbyopia. There is an irreconcilable contradiction between their nearsightedness and nearsightedness, which can only be solved by wearing glasses or surgery. "Professor Zhou Jin, a member of the Sichuan Provincial Ophthalmology Special Committee and the deputy director of the Sichuan Provincial District of Aier Eye Hospital Group, pointed out in his speech, "While wearing presbyopia, although the near vision effect will be improved to a certain extent, the presbyopic patient's own lens Changes in higher-order aberrations will inevitably lead to decreased lens function and reduced visual quality, which cannot be solved by reading glasses."
According to the "Research Report on the Incidence of Nearsightedness and the Importance of Full Vision of Workplace People Over 40 Years Old" published by the internationally renowned research institute Ipsos, more than 90% of the respondents have difficulty reading at close distances. At the same time, about 86% of the respondents are willing to improve the current situation of nearsightedness through a variety of correction methods, rather than simply relying on reading glasses.
In recent years, Aier Ophthalmology has established a global ophthalmic medical service platform across Asia, Europe and the United States through the acquisition of the world-renowned ophthalmic medical institutions such as the MingWang Eye Center in the United States and Bavarian Ophthalmology in Europe. Professor Zhang Jinsong, a standing member of the Chinese Medical Doctors Association and the director of the Aier Eye Hospital Group Liaoning Province, introduced that the current lens replacement surgery can not only help patients correct myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, presbyopia at one time, but also avoid the occurrence of cataracts. . Because the cause of the cataract is turbidity of the lens, surgery replaces the natural lens with an intraocular lens, so the cataract will not form again. (Finish)
