Glasses – stereotypically they’re associated
with being brainy. But is the stereotype true?
Myopia, also known as near sightness, has been
scientifically proven to corelate with higher intelligence.
The discovery happened in 1958

and has had multiple independent studies following
with countries including the USA, Denmark,
Singapoure, New Zealand, Israel and the Chez Republic
being able to replicate its success.
The Gutenberg Health Study in Maines, Germany
founded by medical researchers tested 4658
Germans in the age range of 35
to 74 who were near sighted.
Their conclusion – higher IQ was more common in those who had myopia.
In Israel physical exams and IQ tests
of 15 000 people showed that participants
with the highest intelligence scores were 3 times as likely
to have myopia as their peers.
It was originally thought to be due to close up reading, computer games and other up close
detailed activities that was the cause. However
research now shows otherwise.
Despite genetics that do come into play
environmental factors such as light deficiency
increase the risk of refractive error and are the guilty party at hand.
In a myopia study done in Sydney, Australia
Katherine Rose, a leading international visual disorder
researcher evaluated 4000
school children to see if lack of outdoor activities
affected the risk of myopia. Myopia was
prevented by 10-14 hours of the outdoors per week.
Although light levels and duration of exposure
had to be at a certain level to be effective. Tested on
mice and monkeys, animal researchers also concur with this conclusion.
In Asian countries, compared to other countries,
myopia was reported at a whopping 90%.
Why is that when in the UK myopia was found in only 20-30%
and the United States reported 40%?
Retired general internist and former intensive care physician Dr.C shared
because many East Asian children study more than
的孩子更刻苦 并花费更多的时间在室内 他们也就更少的接触阳光
other school children and spare more and more time inside they have a lot less exposure to sunlight
which induces retinal dopamine which inhibits the growth
of the eyeball thus inhibiting the development of myopia.
Homework is being set in pre-school and childern starting school receive around 2 hours
of homework per day. ”This contrast
with the much more relax paced education in Australia
where homework is virtually non-existent at pre-school and
and minimal in primary school, and where the use
coaching schools is really only a feature of the later years
of high school.” Dr.Ian Morgan stated.

else? Comment below with your thoughts on the study.
