Myopia progression management
Myopia, also known as near-sightedness or short-sightedness, is a vision condition in which people find it difficult to see distant objects clearly. Globally, myopia has increased at an alarming rate with over 2 billion individuals diagnosed with it. High myopia (-5.0D or more) is associated with a higher risk of serious eye conditions such as glaucoma, cataract, retinal detachment and myopic macular degeneration (MMD) – which can even lead to vision impairment or blindness later in life.
Myopia progression is currently a global problem and over 5,000 researches are done globally. There are a few options currently available to reduce progression of myopia. We at Vision Care can offer myopia progression spectacle lenses called MYOPILUX which is accepted by many global optometrists.
