Recently, the Women’s Federation of Dongcheng District, Beijing Women and Children’s Development Foundation, and Beijing Shining Tomorrow Children’s Eye Hospital co-organized the “Examination of Children’s Eyesight” to check the eyesight of children from the Dongsiwutiao Kindergarten and the Kindergarten of the State Forestry Administration of China in Dongcheng. This activity involves 548 children in total, and 129 of them have poor sight, accounting for 23.5% of the total number.
In order to ensure immediate medical treatment, after the examination, the children with poor sight can go to hospital to get free diagnosis about mydriasis, optometry and intraocular pressure. Those needy families can apply to the Women’s Federation for free treatment or treatment with half price. Based on the demand of parents, Beijing Women and Children’s Development Foundation will develop more activities like public lecture on vision protection to help parents and kindergarten obtain more knowledge in protecting children’s vision.
