If you have been told your child is shortsighted (also called myopia), you are not alone.
Myopia is increasing globally and over the past couple of decades alot of research has been undertaken to assess why the eyeball changes during childhood growth.
As a result of these investigations, ‘Myopia Management Contact Lenses’ have been developed and introduced. These are specifically designed contact lenses that can be worn to try and slow down the rate at which myopia increases as a child grows.
Here at R. F. Linklater Opticians we have the newly introduced MiSight lens, which have been shown to reduce the rate of myopic change during growth.
Please visit www.myopiaprevention.org for more information on myopia management or book an appointment at our practice to discuss options in more detail.
