Myopia or nearsightedness is becoming an epidemic worldwide. Not only does it necessitates an increased dependence of distance vision correction over time, high levels of myopia increases risks for eye diseases such as glaucoma, macular maculopathy and retinal detachment.
Myopia control therefore is aim to slow the progression of myopia especially in growing children where this beneficial intervention is most efficacious and needed.
Currently there are three ways in controlling myopia: orthokeratology (for example, Paragon CRT), specialized multifocal soft contact lenses (for example, MiSight 1 Day) and use of atropine.
We would love to further discuss if any of these options are appropriate for your child.
