Did you know that near work activities (i.e., screen time) and less time outdoors are factors that can increase the progression of myopia?
Enter GMAC’s 24-Hour Tech Timeout—a challenge for families to spend a whole day away from screens! Grab a coat and head outdoors to prioritize your family’s eye health and make memories that last a lifetime.
To help your family make the most of your tech timeout, try one of these outdoor activities:
Have a Snowball Fight: Heads up! Your kids can exercise their vision both near and far as they launch snowballs across the yard.
Take a Winter Walk: While on your stroll, have the family call out their favorite nature find. If your kids are having a hard time seeing a bird on a branch or a snowflake, it may be time to visit the eye doctor.
Hide and Go Seek: Ready or not, here you come! This is the perfect game to test your children’s vision as well as their creativity when it comes to hiding spots.
Sometimes it’s hard to know what to ask your child’s eye doctor. Download the eye doctor discussion guide and discover just what to say in your next myopia conversation—which is the most important one you can have for your child’s future vision health.Download the Guide
