Why Do So Many Children Need Eye Glasses These Days?

The Rise of Myopia and the Need For Eye Glasses.

Along with the obesity and diabetes epidemics, myopia is worthy of great societal concern. The side effect of this is the increase in the need for corrective eye glasses. Children, in particular, can be greatly impacted by this.

No longer considered genetic, myopia, or short-sightedness, is a symptom of a much broader problem. There are a number of steps you can take to help protect your children from myopia. Having said that, these steps can be also effective for adults, and are worthwhile following in general.

TEDx talks

Max listened passionately to an amazing TEDx talk on the myopia epidemic recently. This talk not only discusses screentime but also the vital need for outdoor play. Max urges everyone to view and share the talk, “A Childhood Disease Worth Preventing”.
