Myopia Control Clinic

Myopia or nearsightedness is a problem of the eye growing too long for its optical power. Myopia has also become increasingly common the world over, at least in part due to our change in visual habits and increased time devoted to near activities.

The Myopia Control Clinic specializes in the care of children. In addition to providing conventional glasses for clear vision, more importantly, our services include options for controlling the progression of myopia. The latter options are likely to benefit mostly those with early-onset, i.e., whose nearsightedness developed before the age of 7 years, and/or fast progressing myopes, who are at greatest risk of developing high myopia. A positive family history of high myopia represents another risk factor.

Myopia Treatments

  • Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) contact lenses
  • Multizone soft contact lenses. Some of these lenses (MiSight®) are FDA approved specifically to control myopia.
  • Low dose Atropine eye drops
  • Specially designed eyeglasses

Orthokeratology (Ortho-K)

Of all the currently available options for controlling myopia progression, OrthoK is among the most effective.

This procedure uses specially designed contact lenses (OrthoK lenses), made from rigid gas permeable materials that are worn overnight during sleep. They are designed to flatten the cornea, which is the front surface of the eye, and to give clear vision when removed in the morning.
