China Focus: New scheme set to protect children’s eyesight


China will soon roll out a new scheme to curb the rise in nearsightedness – or myopia – among children and teenagers for the sake of their health and the nation’s future.

Authorities have sought public opinions on the scheme, which is jointly drafted by the Ministry of Education (MOE) and the National Health Commission (NHC).

The scheme aims to greatly reduce the myopia rate among the Chinese teenagers to bring children a “bright future,” as demanded by President Xi Jinping in a recent instruction.
