Prevent Farsightedness in Children

Children are more frequently known to play outdoors more intelligent, more streamlined and also more powerful than many children who move in the room. Another benefit is that children rarely have eye disorders.

Disease nearsightedness or myopia (nearsightedness) is a condition where the sufferer can only see objects clearly at close range. At a distance, objects appear blurred, so if forced head became dizzy.

According to research, in some Asian countries myopia cases in children up to 80 percent. The use of glasses or contact lenses is a solution to overcome the myopia. But actually, the risk of myopia can be prevented by simple means, ie more play in the outdoors. This is evident in research conducted by Dr. Anthony Khawaja from the University of Cambridge

He found, for every hour a child spends playing outdoors, the risk of developing myopia is reduced to 2 percent. He researched it on the 10,000 children in China.

Khawaja has not found clear why outdoor activities improve eye sight at a distance. He suspects there may be an effect on long-distance views. In addition, the outdoor play space will also reduce the time children do activities with the view at close range such as reading, browse the internet or playing video games.

However, activity in the room was not bad for each eye. The proof, one study found a “lazy eye (lazy eyes)” or amblyopia, can be improved by playing video games..
