REAPThousands of eight- and nine-year olds in hundreds of schools in rural Northwest China are to be part of a research project to show the impact of eye care and eyeglasses on educational performance. Parents, teachers and eyecare clinicians are involved in the research, which also seeks to address the cultural bias in rural China that wearing eyeglasses causes a child’s vision to deteriorate. The research is being sponsored by Essilor and conducted by the Rural Education Action Project (REAP), a partnership between Stanford University’s Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies and the Chinese Academy of Sciences Cente For Chinese Agricultural Policy.

The research will be presented to China’s State Council and Ministry of Education. In addition to academic papers, the research will also be the basis of presentations to media, clinical conference and to schools of public health in China.
