With the rise of digital devices, many children are spending more time viewing at near distances, contributing to a greater prevalence of myopia and at a younger age. If left unchecked, this can lead to High Myopia, which can cause sight-threatening complications. That’s why we routinely identify patients at risk of progression and offer the latest myopia control options.
Initial Advice & Management
During our initial consultation, we will discuss the most suitable management option according to factors such as age, severity and progression of myopia
Myopia was traditionally managed with single vision lenses, which do not slow down progression. We can recommend and supply the most suitable myopia control glasses including bifocals, multifocals, and specialty designs such as Essilor Stellest.
Prescription Eye Drops
Prescription anti-cholinergic eye drops are used as a treatment to slow the progression of myopia in children aged from 4 to 14 years. The most appropriate dosage will be dependent on multiple factors that will be discussed at your eye appointment.
Specialty Contact Lenses
MiSight 1-Day contact lenses are a daily disposable contact lens designed to slow the progression of myopia in children. The lens design reduce the peripheral hyperopic defocus believed to drive myopia progression. They are safe to use, and can provide long-term myopia control.
