Outdoors & Eyesight


♪ HELLO, I’M KATIE KUENKEL. THERE’S EVEN MORE REASON
TO LET THE KIDS RUN AROUND OUTDOORS: IT MAY
IMPROVE THEIR EYESIGHT. ACCORDING TO A CHINESE
STUDY, KIDS WHO SPENT 40 ADDITIONAL MINUTES
OF OURDOOR ACTIVITIES EACH DAY HAD LOWER RATES
OF NEARSIGHTEDNESS THAN THOSE THAT
DID NOT. NEARSIGHTEDNESS, WHEN
YOU CAN SEE OBJECTS CLOSE CLEARLY, BUT OBJECTS
FARTHER AWAY APPEAR BLURRED, HAS REACHED
EPIDEMIC LEVELS IN SOME PARTS OF THE WORLD.
SPECIFICALLY IN EAST AND
SOUTHEAST ASIA. ACCORDING TO THE AMERICAN
OPTOMETRIC ASSOCIATION, THE CONDITION GENERALLY
FIRST OCCURS IN SCHOOL-AGED CHILDREN, AND IT AFFECTS
ABOUT 30 PERCENT OF THE TOTAL U.S. POPULATION. TREATMENT INCLUDES GLASSES
OR CONTACT LENSES, VISION THERAPY AND A VARIETY
OF SURGICAL PROCEDURES. FOR MORE TIPS TO
