(WICHITA, Kan.) —
New research says, young Americans spend an estimated 10,000 hours playing video games before they turn 21. That means, less time for playing outside, and that could hurt their eye health.
A review of eight studies found the more time a child plays outdoors, the less likely they will be nearsighted. Nearsighted children spent about four hours more per week inside.
Could it be the nearsighted kids prefer close up work that's more often done inside? Read more about it through the Boston Globe.
