We like to move it. Move it!

Exercise is important to maintain health. Not anything new to anyone. What is new is a recent study named the Ireland Eye Study which examined different aspects of vision in relation to the exercise level of children. And it may surprise you that exercise does matter! Not only does being outside reduce the risk of children becoming nearsighted, but this study showed that vision was better for both far and near in children that regularly engaged in physical activity. Additionally, these kids had better depth perception compared to those with little to no activity. The study also found that the children that reported no physical activity were more likely to be visually impaired. So whether that means signing your kids up for soccer or just getting out for a family bike ride- GET MOVING!
