Myopia is NOT a benign condition.
Today 86% of young people in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Japan are nearsighted. In South Korea 96.5% of young males screened for the military conscription are myopic. Estimates among Singaporean youth are as high as 90%.
By contrast, the overall rate of myopia in Europe and the U.K. is about 35%. In the USA 45% are nearsighted – but in the last 10 years these numbers have risen so precipitously that it is now considered a critical health issue.
One cannot overstate the magnitude of the potential public health crisis exponentially rising in some of the most economically progressive and best-educated populations in the world and exposing today’s youth to debilitating loss of eyesight.
Searching for answers with vision scientists around the world, filmmaker Jane Weiner's upcoming new documentary explores the whys and wherefores of this burgeoning worldwide epidemic.
