HOMESCHOOLING and online learning resulted in an increase in screen time and mobile device usage, which led to a significant rise of myopia cases, or nearsightedness, in children.
The worsening eyesight of Filipino children has been a developing problem for many years now.
In 2016, the Department of Health (DOH) announced that 10 percent of grade school-age children have eye problems. Many of the cases stay undetected until the condition has grown worse.
In 2018, during the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) National Digital Parenting Conference, it was revealed that 29 percent of Filipino children suffer from nearsightedness.
Today, 30 percent of children have to wear glasses in order to see clearly – not just in the Philippines, but worldwide.
Though this may be alarming, eye doctors and experts have determined several ways that parents can help decrease the risk of their child developing impaired vision.
It is recommended for children — and even adults — to take frequent breaks, regulate screen time, use larger screens from farther away, and follow an early bedtime, especially if they are required to use a mobile device regularly in their studies or work.
Encouraging children to play outdoors or get involved in sports keeps them busy and occupied, lessening the probability that they will turn to mobile devices for entertainment and leisure.
It is also helpful to visit an eye doctor and schedule regular appointments, so that eye health can be monitored.
Finally, give kids a multivitamin supplement that also promotes better eye health. Hi-Smart is an over-the-counter multivitamin supplement specially formulated with taurine, which prevents retinal degeneration, and vitamin A which is essential for good eyesight.
Distributed exclusively by New Marketlink Pharmaceutical Corporation (NMPC), Hi-Smart is available in drugstores nationwide and comes in syrup form and oral drops for younger children.
