Lack Of Outdoor Activity Linked To Myopia
A recent study has shown that children who play outside have less instances of myopia than those that spend more time inside. This does make a lot of sense. It could be inferred that the ones spending all that time indoors are most likely huddled over a computer, or playing vido games, or watching TV, or texting, etc. All activities that only use close up vision, and don't utilize far vision.
The Hindustan Times reports:
You might be scolding your kid for putting studies at stake, courtesy long hours of out-of-doors activities, but as it turns out, outdoor games are good for children, at least as far as their eyesight is concerned, says a new study.
