What are contact lenses for myopia control?

Multifocal contact lenses are contacts that have different powers for different zones of the eye. Researchers have found that they are effective at reducing the progression of myopia significantly. A recent 3 year study of 144 children between the ages of 8 years old and 12 years old showed reduction of myopia progression by 59%!!!

Soft multifocal contacts are daily disposable contacts which makes them perfect for kids. Studies have shown that children prefer contacts over glasses and find them easy to care for.

Using our advanced eye care technology, we can fit your child for contact lenses.

Who is a good candidate for soft contacts for myopia control?

There has been a tremendous amount of research on soft contact for myopia control over the last few years. Most of the research focuses on children between the ages of 8-12. Our optometrists recommend starting a myopia control program as soon as your child shows signs of being nearsighted. The goal of myopia control is to reduce the progression as much as possible in order to reduce long term risk. For children under 8, it is generally recommended that they use Atropine eye drops.
