(China Daily) Nearsightedness or myopia has grown to such worrisome proportions in China that the Ministry of Education and the National Health Commission issued a draft guideline on Thursday laying out comprehensive measures to curb the problem among schoolchildren.

The percentage of primary school students with myopia should be capped below 38 percent by 2030, with less than 60 percent of middle school and 70 percent of high school students nearsighted, the guideline said.

Prevention and control of myopia will be used to evaluate local government performance, it said, adding that schools and local governments with worsening student eyesight for three consecutive years will be held accountable, it said.

Parents and schools should work together to ensure at least one hour of outdoor activity every day, enough sleep, reduced academic workload and less time spent on electronic devices for students, the guideline said.

According to a research report released by the World Health Organization last year, the myopia rate among Chinese juveniles is the highest in the world at 70 percent for high school and college students and nearly 40 percent for primary school students.

The WHO report said that the number of nearsighted people in China has reached 600 million, nearly half the country's population.

Schools can not prevent it
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you
