2019-01-10

According to child ametropia screening in several medical institutions in our city, there are a lot of missed diagnosis and misdiagnosis conditions in child and juvenile myopia, astigmatism, amblyopia and eye diseases, in which not scientific and standard optometry cover up diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases. According to Diao Haidan, a municipal NPC member, it is needed to control ametropia with standard diagnosis of eye doctors, optometry, diagnosis to various eye problems, individualized treatment, periodical adjustment and follow-up visits, including the continuous medical behaviors of optometry and optician. However, public hospitals are not allowed to open optometry centers, which separates relations between optometry and optician, leading to unfavorable treatment effect.

 

According to suggestion provided by Dian Haidan, public hospitals shall be allowed to open optometry centers, which benefits to control of child and juvenile shortsightedness and physical health of them, giving rise to benefits to children and young people.
