Muscular Effort Is Cause
of Nearsightedness, Notes
an Authority on Subject
It Is generally ngreed thnt myopia,
or nearsightedness, Is nn acquired de
fect resulting from tho elongation of
tho eyeball, but Its causation has not
yet been determined, tho evidence for
tlio assumption that near work pro
duces near sight being unsatisfactory.
Dr. Kldrldgo Green, writing In tho Lon
don Lancet, ad vn rices tho theory that
tlio primary nnd essential cnuso Is nn
obstruction of tho outflow of tho
lymph. Tho obstruction may bo pro
duced by severe muscular effort, c. g.,
by lifting heavy weights, when n feel
ing of tension Is nlwnys felt In tho
eyes, which appear, In cxtrcmo cases,
to bo starting from tho head. This
Is moro especially tho causo of pro
gressive myopia among warehouse
boys, porters and others whoso work
Involves excessive effort, while with
thoso engaged In sedentary occupa
tions tho form of exerclso tnken may
bo responsible, e. g., wrestling, rowing,
digging, nnd also coughing. Thus
when signs of commencing myopia ap
pear nnythlng likely to Increase the
Intraocular tension should bo avoided.
Thcro Is no need to avoid reading.
