National Night Out is an event held on the first Tuesday of August, which promotes the awareness of drug and crime prevention, strengthening neighborhood spirit and generating support for local safety. In Schaumburg, there are outdoor events that can allow you and your family to explore the community and know your neighbors. All local communities are encouraged to give up their time on their electronic devices and help support this event.
Not only is it a great opportunity to visit local police and have fun outside, but you can use this time to help educate your children about myopia prevention and the benefits of spending time outdoors. How do you show that when children spend as little as 1 hour and a half outside, this can decrease the risks of myopia progression by as much as 50%. A child with high myopia has a high risk of developing eye diseases like macular degeneration, retinal detachment, glaucoma, and cataracts. By attending events like National Night Out, you can build a better bond with your family and at the same time ensure that their vision is being well taken care of as well.
