In an article in The Guardian, Nicola Davis writes, “Children should be encouraged to spend time outdoors to reduce their risk of becoming shortsighted, experts have said.

Shortsightedness is rising around the world, with the condition said to have reached epidemic proportions in East Asia: estimates suggest about 90% of teenagers and young adults in China have the condition...

Several studies have found children who spend more time outdoors have a lower risk of myopia. While some report that looking into the distance could be important, others say exposure to outdoor light is key.”
