Myopia Management Contact Lenses

Myopia Management contact lenses are designed to firstly correct your child’s vision, so they can see well, and secondly to slow the process of eyeball growth, with the aim of reducing how short-sighted (myopic) they eventually become. The aim of the treatment is to slow the rate of progression of myopia by around 50%.

Myopia Management contact lenses cannot completely halt the progression, nor can they reduce your child’s prescription from the point at which they start wearing the contact lenses. Therefore the earlier treatment is started, the better the long-term prognosis.
