Vision and learning are intimately related. In fact, experts say that roughly 80 percent of what a child learns in school is information that is presented visually. A good vision is essential for students of all ages to reach their full academic potential.
Children are increasingly affected with Myopia. Over one third of our children, although born with normal vision, become nearsighted or better known as MYOPIA during their school years.
Myopia, or Shortsightedness, blur far away objects but near objects are seen clearly. The condition is prevalent in children under 12 years of age and it incidence is specifically higher children of EAST-ASIAN countries. While there are many factors involved from genetics to environments, one point had unanimous support; myopia is linked to excessive near vision activities like reading and studying.
If your child has myopia (nearsightedness), you’re probably wondering if there is a cure or at least something that can be done to slow its progression so your child does’t need stronger glasses year after year.
Several studies seemed to indicate that using the eyeglass with bifocal lenses or progressive lenses can slowdown the progression of myopia among children up to 38%.

Children Who Spend More Time Outdoors Have Less Risk of Near-sightedness, Study Finds
If you want to reduce your children’s risk of becoming nearsighted, it might be a good idea to have them spend more time outdoors under the sun
It’s a great idea to encourage your children to spend more time outdoors (and leave the cell phone and other electronic devices at home or in their pockets!).
Doing so just might decrease their risk of becoming nearsighted — or slow the progression of their current level of myopia.
Better yet, join them for some quality time outdoors together!
