There are so many fun things you can do outdoors this winter! Here we share tips on fun outdoor activities you can do and explain why playing outside can help your child’s vision.
It’s nearly the holiday season, so it’s a great time to learn which gifts may be beneficial to children with myopia, and which may be a hindrance.

Children who spend a considerable amount of time playing outside are less likely to develop myopia than children who spend most of their time indoors in front of the TV or computer screen. These are the findings of a recent university study. Since Myopia is a progressing condition that can lead to more severe vision problems, every parent should be aware of this.
