Your choice: outdoors or eyeglasses

  "Urban eyes" is an article in Science News, Feb. 9, 2013, p. 22-25.  It shows
that nearsightedness and myopia have risen significantly (from 25 to 42% of the
US population in one generation).  It suggests that the reason is too much
up close reading.  The solution--get kids outdoors because myopia points to
cataracts, glaucoma, or a detached retina later in life.
