Myopia Control

What other factors influence the development of myopia in children?

As mentioned earlier it is important to make sure that children spend an ample amount of time outdoors playing or participating in sports.  The mechanism is not clear, but it is thought that time outdoors is one factor that helps to control the increase in myopia. Time indoors cannot be avoided as children have to do their homework and reading as a part of their education and school work.  What is important is that parents encourage their children to be outside as much as possible and to take frequent breaks from their near work.
