With China National Sight Day fast approaching, attention continues to focus on the growth of myopia and the importance of strategies to combat the trend. Increased outdoor activity for children is one such mechanism and our colleagues at Shanghai Eye Disease Prevention and Treatment Center (SEDPTC) are at the forefront of research and awareness raising. Once again, on June 6, Big Eye will be on a mission to encourage the children of Shanghai to get outdoors and play. But this year, with a little help from IAPB, Big Eye has carried-out a global mission to raise awareness with our partners and friends.
Over the next two weeks, look out for regular updates on the IAPB website as Big Eye Goes Sunny for Sight around the world. Perhaps you can even play a game with your colleagues: where will Big Eye visit next?!
