In the schools of Yakutia, it was proposed to make physical education lessons daily, according to IA DEITA. RU. The main freelance ophthalmologist of the republic, Ekaterina Zakharova, sees the need for this. According to her, the most common complaint at an appointment with a pediatric ophthalmologist now is complaints of decreased visual acuity, including in the absence of myopia in parents. And vision in modern children is deteriorating due to a decrease in physical activity. “Due to the climatic features of the region, children spend most of their time in a closed visual space: they are taken to a kindergarten or school by car, and back - too. If the child returns home on his own, then he still does not stay on the street due to frost. And if there is no need to move a lot and a person always looks only at the space near him, the ability to look into the distance atrophies and visual acuity decreases. After all, a growing organism adjusts to its needs - and the child does not need to strain the visual apparatus to see objects in the distance,”the expert explains. It can be added that last year, the coronavirus pandemic also threw vision problems in schoolchildren, due to which the educational process in schools was transferred to a distance mode. Even physical education took place in front of the screens of computers and laptops. After mastering all the intricacies of distance learning, the activated study days for Yakut schoolchildren began to mean not skipping lessons, but distance learning. The constant stay in a confined space is aggravated by the fact that children, in principle, have no interest in sports, they prefer gadgets to walk, Ekaterina Zakharova is sure. Therefore, children need additional compulsory sports in schools. And five physical education lessons a week will help you cope with the lack of physical activity. For example, the visual apparatus strengthens the game of basketball. Zakharova also calls for organizing more sports leisure for children and youth, improving more outdoor sports grounds and tennis courts in all settlements of Yakutia.
