Myopia starts early in Singapore

Myopia is a serious issue in Singapore and most children are wearing spectacles. A survey shows 10% of kindergarten children, 60% of primary 6 students, and 80% of 18-year-olds in Singapore are myopic, said Dr Deborah Tan, Associate Consultant, General Cataract and Comprehensive Ophthalmology Department, Singapore National Eye Centre.

Singaporeans spend USD 250 million on prescription glasses a year

Singaporeans spend a staggering USD 250 million a year on prescription glass every year and this figure was highlighted by Professor Tin Aung, deputy director of the Singapore Eye Research Institute in a lecture to mark World Sight Day in 2013.

One reason why more children in Singapore have myopia compared to children living in Sydney is because of the lack of outdoor time by Singaporean. Exposure to higher light levels outdoors can create dopamine in the eye that can stop the development of myopia. So it is essential to get the children to spend more time outdoor.

New Brand’s Lutein Essence

In the meantime, there is the new Brand’s Lutein Essence containing 5:1 Lutein to Zeaxanthin ratio and is supported by the US National Eye Institute as a recommended dietary ratio to benefit vision health. Lutein and Zeaxanthin absorb blue light and protect against harmful free radical damages which are important to help in preventing digital eye strain and maintaining vision performance.
