Misconceptions About Myopia Need to Be Addressed


Less than 30 percent of children and adolescents rest their eyes after reading for half an hour, and 40 percent of those who do rest still use digital devices during this period, according to the China Juvenile Myopia Prevention and Management Annual Trend Report which was published in Shanghai on National Eye Care Day on Sunday.

The report, which was compiled by the Shanghai Association for Science and Technology, German optical systems and optoelectronics manufacturer Zeiss, and domestic tech giant Tencent, also stated that nearly 72 percent of parents believe that comprehensive eye health examinations are helpful in preventing myopia, but only about 23 percent of them take their children for such examinations regularly.
