playing-outside-300x199Now there’s one more reason to tell your kids to play outside! Did you know that children who play outdoors have better eyesight than those who play indoors according to Inquisitr.

Nearsightedness has increased over 65% since 1970 which is largely due to children playing video and computer games. Nearsightedness, also known as Myopia, is a condition where the light that travels into the eye does not focus on the retina but in front of it. This error causes far away images to be blurry. Images that are nearby are not affected and appear clear. 

The only way to correct nearsightedness is to wear corrective glasses, contact lenses are surgery. It’s important to book an eye exam for your child if you’re worried as nearsightedness is linked to serious eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and retina detachment.
