What is Myopia Control Therapy?
Myopia Control Therapy is used to slow down the progression of myopia (nearsightedness) in children typically between the ages of 6-18. Therapy is recommended for children whose nearsightedness worsens quickly. The typical age when vision worsens quickly is between 8-12 years old, thus therapy is most effective when it is slowed down during these early years or earlier when myopia is just beginning.
