Myopia Control

Our mission is to prevent myopia (short-sightedness) in children. However, in children where myopia is already present, the next best thing to do is to prevent it from getting worse. Reducing the rate at which myopia increases not only means your glasses are thinner, but it also has serious eye health benefits. Lower myopia means a more robust eyeball that is at less risk of going blind. 

OrthoKeratology

A custom made unique hard contact lens. Wear while you sleep, wake up with clear and comfortable vision. Nicknamed the “braces for the eye,” they reshape your eye while you sleep. Don’t worry, its completely reversible! 

Atropine

Myopia Control. Atropine

A once a day eye drop. Atropine is the oldest form of myopia control, with origins dating back over 100 years. Extensive research has been done on atropine. Today, we use low dose atropine (0.025% or 0.05%) as it has been shown to be the most effective dosage. 

MiSight Contact Lenses

Myopia Control. Misight.

Special myopia control contact lenses to be worn during the day. These are worn like regular soft contact lenses, but a special technology in the lens itself helps control myopia. 

MiyoSmart Glasses

Myopia Control. DIMS. Glasses. Short sighted

These are not your ordinary optical frame lenses. A special dot matrix is embedded into the lens itself to provide the benefits of myopia control. At Vision Care, we use the Japanese made Hoya MiyoSmart lens. This is based on the DIMS technology. 

What else that can be done?

Studies have shown that spending on average 90 minutes a day outdoors, having an appropriate near working distance and taking regular breaks from screens/near-work every hour may also help to reduce the rate of myopia progression.
