German teenagers’ myopia rate is less than 15%. How do they do it?

Abstract: ocular muscle fatigue is the main cause of juvenile myopia. Active exercise of ocular muscles is not only not easy to myopia, but also helps to improve vision. Parents should ensure that their children receive sufficient light. When going out, if the outdoor sun is too strong, they must wear sunglasses for their children.

in Germany, the myopia rate of teenagers is less than 15%. The proportion of myopia among teenagers and children is very low. How did Germany do it?

and

set up professional institutions to regularly check students’ eyesight.

and

first of all, this is due to the special organization for the prevention and treatment of myopia established by the German youth eye protection association in the education department. The organization will regularly check students’ eyesight and establish youth eyesight files. Once those with reduced eyesight are found, they will be checked and corrected in time. In addition, the youth vision report is launched every year to let all walks of life understand the current situation of myopia among young people in Germany. Schools with excellent eyesight protection will be selected every year.

another major task of the association is to publicize vision protection measures. They cooperate with educational institutions at all levels to set up special departments for the prevention and treatment of myopia. The focus of the Department is to regularly check students’ eyesight and establish a “eyesight file” for each child. If the child’s vision is found to be decreased, it will communicate with the parents in time for correction. The Department also cooperates with optical shops and optometrists.

1 point prevention is better than 10 points treatment

. Secondly, schools and parents in Germany attach great importance to children’s vision. Now many German schools actively promote eye muscle exercises. They do it once in the morning and afternoon and once again before going to bed at night.

eye muscle fatigue is the main cause of juvenile myopia. Active exercise of eye muscle is not only not easy to myopia, but also helps to improve vision. Parents should ensure that their children receive sufficient light. When going out, if the outdoor sun is too strong, they must wear sunglasses for their children.

and

German schools especially advocate outdoor activities, which stipulates that at least 2 hours of outdoor activities must be guaranteed every day. Many schools also carry out “telescopic” activities on a regular basis. Children stare at the distance in the corridor, park or mountain to nourish their eyes.

and

vision care, starting from diet,

and

children’s vision prevention, plays a very important role in diet, nutrition, sleep, eye habits and so on. First of all, in terms of nutrition, we should increase the intake of meat, vitamins, milk and fruits, which will play a certain role in preventing myopia. We should do

and

in diet at ordinary times: protein, vitamins, calcium, chromium and other elements are necessary for eye development;

sugar restriction: sugar can consume calcium in the body and induce myopia; Ensure adequate sleep: keep the eyes in a non fatigue state as a whole.

finally, scientific eye use is an important way to prevent myopia. The high incidence of myopia is from 12 to 18 years old. Due to different educational systems, German teenagers do not have heavy learning pressure. On the contrary, they attach great importance to physical exercise and travel. At the same time, German schools and families pay great attention to creating a good visual environment, such as adequate lighting environment, away from TV and so on.
