Clear future ahead with decrease in myopia

By Cai Wenjun

The incidence of myopia among minors in Shanghai has dropped for the first time in the past three decades, thanks to efforts from authorities, people's rising awareness, proper and timely intervention as well as clinical development.

The prevalence of myopia among local children and students was 60 percent last year, dropping by 1.2 percentage points than the previous year, according to the Shanghai Health Commission.

Shanghai has been targeting myopia among minors as a key focus for public vision health and stepped up health service and medical research in the field.
