Myopia Control

25 minMyopia Control (nearsightedness control) is a clinical practice in which a doctor attempts to halt or slow down the progression of myopia in a child or adolescent. Myopia progression is thought to occur because of factors such as genetics and time spent doing near work versus outdoor activities. Currently, myopia progression and new cases of myopia in children are at an all time high, due to the amount of near and computer work required of children in the modern age.

Dr. Shrayman and Dr. Vecchi are well-versed and experienced in a variety of clinical methods that can be used to control myopia, and have participated in research and written articles on Myopia Control.

Clinical methods that we can employ for myopia control are listed below:

-Soft Multifocal Contact Lens Therapy

-Progressive Addition Lens/Bifocal Lens Therapy

-Antimuscarinic (atropine 0.01%) Therapy
