Myopia Control

Managing Myopia

Myopia, often known as Short Sightedness, is dramatically on the rise around the world. In the year 2000 it affected 27% of the population of western Europe, but by 2020 it had risen to 37%!

Unfortunately, Myopia tends to get worse as we grow, and the younger it starts the worse it may get overall!

Recent scientific breakthroughs now allow us to manage, and reduce, the severity of myopia like never before.

Acting early may dramatically reduce the severity of short-sightedness in children and young adults, increase the range of vision-correction options available, and significantly reduce the risk of serious eye problems later in life.

Myopia Management Assessment

We are committed to offering the very best care for your child’s eyes, so we’ll suggest solutions to manage myopia if we ever think it might be helpful.

You don’t have to wait for us though! Please enquire about a Myopia Management Assessment today.

Myopia 3

Simple Solutions

Thankfully the solutions for myopia management are very simple and readily available.

Incredible new contact lenses can slow down the progression of short-sightedness in children; such solutions have been proven to reduce the severity of myopia by 50%!

Furthermore, experience tells us that children can adapt to wearing contact lenses very happily if given the chance.

There are also spectacle lenses specifically designed to help counter myopia, so speak to your optometrist today to find out what options could be available to you in a Myopia Management Assessment.

Speak to us Today if Your Child

  • Is already short-sighted.
  • Is under 16 years old.
  • Is a student in full-time study.
  • Spends less than 1.5 hours outside every day.
  • Spends more than 2 hours reading or using handheld devices (outside of school hours).
  • Has one or more parents with Myopia (though even with neither parent suffering myopia, it still affects 1 in 4 people!).

If any of the above applies to you, or if you just want to be certain you’re taking the very best care of your child’s eyes, we would advise speaking to us to investigate the best course of action to help avoid or reduce the severity of myopia.
