Clinical Lecture: See Well, Play Well, and Be Well

We all know that staying healthy at any age requires engaging in some form of physical exercise. But have you considered how sporting activities might benefit children’s eye health, particularly throughout childhood? 

During the lecture See Well, Play Well, and Be Well: The Relationship Between Vision, Physical Activity and BMI in Schoolchildren, Doctor Síofra Harrington reveals the results of a cross-sectional epidemiological study which investigated whether refractive error and vision problems in children are associated with increased sedentary behaviour and reduced physical activity and sports participation.
