ology, according to the notice jointly issued by six ministries including the National Health Comm

ission, the Ministry of Education and the State Administration for Market Regulation.

The notice also said that authorities would crack down on activities that deceive the p

ublic and damage their interests in the name of using Chinese medical technology to treat myopia.

Hu Ailian, vice-director of the Beijing Institute of Ophthalmology at Beijing Tongren Hospital, said tha

t myopia can’t be cured at the current stage but children and teenagers could prevent, control or slow its progressio

n by using their eyes properly, increasing outdoor time, and avoiding looking at close objects for long time.

Once parents find their children have problems with eyesight, they should send them to ophthalmic medical institutions for e

xamination, listen to doctors’ suggestions and receive vision correction, Hu added.
