Daddy who is a medical doctor and specialist in preventive medicine always advocates the need to have proper lighting as part of good reading habits especially in children. The other good reading habits include keeping the distance of the book to the eye to about 30 cm and having regular rest intervals (e.g. take a 5 minutes break for every 30 minutes of reading). A good lighting can help to reduce the strain on the child’s eyes and thus reduce the risk of myopia.
