CONCLUSION

Myopia as a Public Health Problem

It is worth noting that close to a third of the Australian population is short-sighted and in some population groups this proportion can rise up to 80%, such as in high school children living in Hong Kong. Even though some children appear to be more genetically predisposed to short-sightedness than others, it appears that nowadays, the heavy demand on the visual system is by far the most important underlying reason why most people acquire the need to seek help for this condition. Nowadays computers are a common source of heavy demand on the eyes. For a detailed discussion on this subject, refer to Part II (C): hints on eye usage with computers.

Having this knowledge regarding the effects of the environment, one can attempt to alter it in such a way as to help maintain the good vision that the vast majority of the population is capable of achieving. Appendix (I) below, entitled "PROTECT YOUR GOOD VISION", outlines the measures that we can take to maintain good sight.
