Myopia Control

Myopia control is the area of children’s eye care dedicated to slowing down childhood myopia (short sightedness) progression. We use the latest technology myopia control spectacle lenses and contact lenses which are proven to slow myopic progression. We’ll also talk to you about your child’s visual environment – how much time they spend on screens and reading, and how much time they spend outdoors.

Myopia management is important because once a child becomes myopic (or short-sighted) it tends to progress, or get worse, every few months until their mid twenties. The younger a child becomes myopic, the faster they tend to progress, leading to higher levels of myopia. This means we should start a myopia management strategy as soon as possible.

Myopia control is about protecting eye health. Myopia in children may just seem like a pair of glasses. However, as childhood myopia worsens, the eye is growing at an accelerated rate. The eyes are meant to grow in childhood, at a regular rate up until age 10-12. However if they grow too quickly or don’t stop at age 10-12, then a child becomes myopic. This excessive growth of the eye stretches the retina – the light sensitive layer lining the back of the eye – and the stretching increases risk of eye diseases like Glaucoma, Myopic Macular Degeneration, Cataract and Retinal Detachment.

It’s important to see myopia for what it really is – a condition of the eyes which increases disease risk.  If your child is Myopic (short- sighted), talk to us about a myopia management strategy for your child.
