Encourage kids to play outside because according to researchers it's good for your eyes.

More than 3,000 older adults were researched and it was determined those who'd had the most UVB exposure during their younger years were less likely to be nearsighted.

There was also a link found between higher blood levels of lutein found in leafy vegetables and a reduced risk for nearsightedness.

Experts say to avoid harsh midday sunlight and wear sunscreen.
