What Is Myopia?
Myopia, or nearsightedness, is a type of refractive error commonly diagnosed during childhood. Myopia occurs when the eye grows too long from front to back, or when the cornea becomes curved, causing light to focus in front of the retina, instead of directly on it like it’s supposed to.
If your child has myopia, it means they can see objects close to them clearly, but distant objects appear blurry and out of focus.
What Is Myopia Control?
Myopia control is a type of eye care that involves several different treatments and techniques to slow the eye’s growth. It is more successful when started early during childhood, before the condition has the chance to progress.
Royal Vista Eyecare offers several myopia control methods to benefit your child.
MiyoSmart lenses are safe, effective, and non-invasive lenses designed to manage myopia in children.
These revolutionary spectacles use D.I.M.S. technology to provide two focus areas. One area on the lens corrects visual defects while the other treatment area helps to slow the progression of myopia.
Miyosmart lenses are easy to fit, just like regular single vision lenses, meaning they can fit into any frame without limitations.
MyoVision lenses are specifically designed to manage myopia in children.
These lenses ensure that images are projected onto the retina properly to correct vision, while minimizing peripheral defocus to slow myopic progression.
Atropine therapy involves using low-dose atropine drops.
Atropine eye drops have been proven to reduce myopia progression in children. Your optometrist may recommend atropine therapy for children who are unable to wear contact lenses or glasses, but this therapy can also be used in combination with other treatments.
MiSight Contact Lenses
MiSight contacts have been proven to slow the progression of myopia in children by slowing the elongation of the eye while it’s growing.
MiSight contact lens technology can correct myopia, while providing clear vision for your child.
