It’s easy to protect kids from myopia 2016.11.25
16451 16451

MANY children in Hong Kong wear glasses. Some do so because they cannot clearly see things that are far away. This condition is called myopia, or short-sightedness. People with myopia get a prescription from an eye doctor, then go to an optician to pick a frame and lenses.

Many children in Singapore (新加坡) have the same problem. Scientists there did a survey and found, on average, children become short-sighted at eight and a half years old. The study was conducted by eye experts.

To help prevent short-sightedness, parents should take their children outdoors more often. This is because our bodies make a special chemical called dopamine under the sun.
