Eye Fund is dedicated to transforming lives through delivering different eye-focused services to people in need. According to the "Hong Kong Pediatric Ophthalmology Project" launched by the ophthalmology team at the Chinese University of Hong Kong's Faculty of Medicine in 2015, 13,559 children aged 4 to 9 have been diagnosed with myopia. It is found that children in Hong Kong are wearing glasses at an earlier age and the myopia rate for children of 6 years’ old even hit 11.4% , surpassing other European and Asian regions or countries. Dr. Lam Tsz-ho, Director of the Eye Center at Hong Kong Baptist Hospital, pointed out that exercising more on weekdays, getting more exposure to the sun, reading with sufficient light while keeping a moderate distance can all effectively prevent myopia in children.
In view of this, Eye Fund hopes to help students with financial difficulties resolve the problem of not having sufficient light while they are reading by donating eye protection lamps for free. Not only does the program aims at helping students to improve their learning environment, but it also hopes to reduce the chance for them to suffer from myopia or myopia deepens .
