HNC of China published myopia prevention handbooks for kids (4 versions for kindergarten, primary, junior high and high school, respectively), it provided scientifically explanation of how myopia happens and the methods/recommendations which are more or less aligned with basic principles with EM. e.g.
. no glasses needed unless necessary for kids have myopia less than -1 D, , and reduced lenses for distance vision only if he/she cannot see clearly when needed.
. outdoor activity/distance vision importance
. reduce screen time
. regular breaks during close-up actions.
it is really a good trend. hope this will roll out to schools and get into the education reformation activities.
