Myopia Control: The Foresight to Keep nearsightedness in Check

Myopia (or nearsightedness) is a common refractive error. When the eye is too long in proportion to the curve of the cornea (or vice versa) it causes light to focus in front of the retina rather than directly on the retina. As a result, the patient cannot clearly see objects beyond a certain distance.

This eye problem usually develops in childhood and is getting more and more common all the time; more children are developing myopia, and at a younger age than ever before.

What Does Myopia Control Mean?

Obviously, you want your child to experience the world as fully as possible. So while there is no cure for myopia, there are a few courses of treatment that can slow, or even stop the progression of myopia in your child.

By changing the structuring and focusing power of the eye during a child’s formative years, we can limit the strain that contributes to the progression of myopia. This will not stop your child from requiring correction. It can, however, save your child from requiring very strong correction, and potentially developing other related eye problems later in life.

Controlling Myopia With MyoVision by Zeiss Lenses

We recommend special spectacle lenses to control myopia in children. These lenses, developed and created by Zeiss, are called MyoVision lenses. Studies show that children who wore the lenses experienced a 30% reduction in the progression of their myopia. These results are accomplished by correcting the refractive error while also moving the image in the child’s peripheral vision to the front of the retina. This essentially slows down the growth of the eye.
