None of the 536 students in the school are myopic! What's the trick to this school?

Just a few days after the new semester, Wantang Primary School in Pingbian Miao Autonomous County, Honghe Prefecture, Yunnan Province is on fire! Because in the opening visual inspection, all 536 students in the school have a visual acuity of 5.0 or above! The visual acuity of 5.2 accounted for 80%, 5.3 accounted for 12%, and 5.0 and 5.1 accounted for 8%. In recent years, Wantang Primary School has maintained a record of zero myopia rate. How did this happen? Wantang Primary School attaches great importance to students’ outdoor activities and encourages children to be more active. All children must leave the classroom after school. Every afternoon, the PE class is full, and the PE teachers are short-staffed. , the music teacher teaches aerobics...; There is an hour of free time before dinner, and the children have at least 3 hours of outdoor activity every day. In the school classroom, the teacher will regularly change the seats, adjust the children's visual distance; there are also eye exercises twice a day.

From the first grade, children are trained to have good work and rest habits. The lights in the dormitory are turned off at 9 o'clock in the evening, and the children get up at 6:30 in the morning , plus a morning break, 10.5 hours of sleep per day. In addition, the school pays attention to a balanced diet. The three meals a day are reasonably matched. Breakfast is milk and rice noodles, and lunch and dinner are four dishes and one soup. To prevent myopia, Wantang Elementary School also prohibits students from bringing mobile phones into the campus. If children want to communicate with their families, they can use 6 public telephones in the school for free; when children return home, the use of electronic products requires parental supervision. 3 hours of outdoor exercise every day, 10 and a half hours of sleep, no mobile phone, balanced nutrition... Maybe it is these factors that create children's good eyesight. In stark contrast to Wantang Primary School, is the myopia rate among primary and secondary school students across the country. According to data from the National Health Commission, the overall myopia rate among Chinese children and adolescents in 2022 is 53.6%, including 14.5% for 6-year-olds, 36% for primary school students, 71.6% for junior high school students, and 81% for high school students. The harm caused by myopia is far more than simply "seeing clearly", and its greatest impact on children is reflected in the following three aspects: 1. Myopia caused blurred vision, dry and sore eyes, difficulty in concentrating, emotional irritability and even dizziness Such phenomena will cause children to spend 30% more time and mental effort than children with normal vision, and spend longer time in learning. 2. Every year, a large number of candidates are rejected by the restricted majors because of myopia, involving nearly 30 majors such as electronic information, bioengineering, medical pharmacy, aviation, and navigation technology, which seriously affects the children's life and career planning. 3. The child is in the developmental stage, and the degree of myopia is easy to deepen. If it develops into high myopia, it will cause various eye diseases such as retinal detachment and macular hemorrhage. Therefore, on the issue of myopia, in addition to prevention, prevention and correction are even more important! If it is found that the child has myopia, it is recommended to choose a scientific plan for correction, control the growth of myopia, and improve vision.
