Myopia Control Methods
Orthokeratology, or OrthoK, is a form of corneal refractive therapy for vision correction. OrthoK involves wearing rigid gas permeable contact lenses at night to gently flatten the cornea. Vision correction with OrthoK is temporary, and the results last as long as the lenses are worn at night.
CooperVision MiSight 1 day lenses are a popular choice for myopia control in children. Unlike standard single vision lenses, MiSight offers rings of varying lens power in each contact. The differing lens powers help the eyes to focus correctly, slowing eyeball growth, which can worsen myopic symptoms.
Medically prescribed eye drops that contain a low dose of atropine have been used to slow the progression of myopia since the 1960s. Studies have shown that low-dose atropine eye drop treatment slows myopia progression by 50-60% over 2 years.
