More green space recommended to reduce myopia risks among students


Chinese researchers have demonstrated that more green space exposure among students can reduce their myopia rate.


Since children from urban areas have 2.6 times higher odds of having myopia than those from rural areas that are characterized by more green environments, a potential association between green space and myopia may exist, said the research article recently published in the journal Ophthalmology.


Using China's Gaofen-2 remote sensing satellite, the researchers from the Sun Yat-sen University in south China's Guangdong Province cooperated with 20 domestic and foreign institutes to conduct large-scale cohort analysis.
