The 23rd “China National Sight Day” will be conducted on Wednesday June 6th, 2018 with the theme “correct myopia scientifically; care for children’s eye health”. All across China our members and friends will be taking part in activities to ensure that child-centred activities promoting eye health are a reality.
IAPB are proud to bring you comments and articles from our members, spotlighting their activities, throughout the week. Children’s eye health is increasingly seen as an issue of importance in China. Among the economically developed cities in East Asia, myopic students account for 80% to 90% in high school graduates. In some East Asian cities, 10% to 20% of secondary school students have developed high myopia. This is an increasingly serious public health issue and China is to be commended for using June 6 as an opportunity to turn attention to the issue.
