Viewing near work further away may slow myopia progression.
In a 2019 paper Huang, and others, reported on an extensive study, following 10,743 children in Taipei. Importantly they found that a longer working distance for near tasks, > 30 cm, slowed myopia progression more than continuous near work or being outside. So, keeping your child’s near work further away than 30cms is another way to slow myopia progression. Come and see us at the practice to discuss this, and other techniques, technologies that can help slow myopia progression.
