Because children’s eyes are not fully developed and are still in their growth phase, myopia can be controlled, and the progression of myopia can actually be decelerated. It is important, however, that your child undergoes a comprehensive eye exam before a myopia control strategy can be formulated.
At Dr. Zargar Eyecare, we are certified in highly advanced myopia control methods like MiyoSmart Lenses.We offer both lenses and contact lenses to help treat myopia control for children:
Misight Contact Lenses
MiSight contact lenses are soft, daily contact lenses specially made for children with myopia. These lenses allow your child to see clearly at all distances and have been shown to slow myopia progression in some children by up to 59%.
For many children with myopia, we recommend prescription glasses made with MyoVision lenses. Made by Zeiss, these specialty lenses are designed to slow the progression of myopia by correcting the refractive error by sacrificing some clear peripheral vision to improve central vision and discourage the eye from becoming more elongated. MyoVision lenses may offer effective myopia control for some children.
