At least 10 hours a week outdoors in the sunshine is beneficial for young children's vision.
Exposure to sunshine as a small child is crucial to the development of a healthy eye according to results of long-term myopia study conducted by University of Sydney researchers. Their findings published this week in the American Academy of Ophthalmology's professional journal tables data showing children who spend more time outdoors were less likely to become short-sighted or myopic.
The important element is to keep eyes safe and healthy with regular checks and protection when it's needed most. See our current range of kids eyewear.
