Close Reading Causes Myopia

As per a research, which has been published in the journal Lancet, it has been revealed that children in East Asia witness a lot of education stress. The effect for the same can be seen on their eyes, as increasingly students have been suffering from short- sightedness or Myopia.

Professor Ian Morgan, from the Australian National University in Canberra, said that the education pressure is chiefly responsible for the eye sight loss and even blindness. Some of the countries, which have been suffering from the problem, are China, Japan and South Korea.

The study authors were of the view that many studies have been done, which suggest that short-sightedness occurs due to close reading. "The rise in myopia prevalence in urban east Asia might therefore be plausibly associated with the increasing intensity of education", they further asserted.

It has been recommended that children should maintain an eye distance while reading. It has been further affirmed that children should take regular breaks while studying and should take fresh air as well.

All these factors help in protecting the eyes from problems like short-sightedness. In addition, Myopia problems have also been found in animals as well as in primates, said the study researchers.
