MYOPIA CONTROL IN CHILDREN
Although there are no establish cures for myopia, a number of recent studies suggest it may be possible to control myopia by slowing its progression during childhood and in the teenage years. These treatments can induce changes in the structure and focusing of the eye to reduce stress and fatigue associated with the development and progression of nearsightedness.

- Atropine eye drops
- Multifocal contact lenses
- Orthokeratology (“ortho-k”)
- Multifocal eyeglasses
