Myopia Control Programme
Myopia can progress rapidly in children, which may lead to high myopia
Start Controlling Your Child’s Myopia Progression From Today!
More and more children are developing myopia at an earlier age. The younger a child develops myopia, the faster it will progress, the higher it becomes.
Even -1.00D of myopia carries an increased risk of vision-threatening complications later in life. As myopia increases, the risks of such complications also significantly increases.
While myopia cannot be reversed, slowing down the rate of myopia progression in children can keep it from getting worse. This can promote better vision now and protect their eye health for the future.
Did you know – It is estimated that 50% of the world’s population will become myopic by 2050?
This is due to:
– Increased screen time
– Less time spent outdoors
– Increased near vision tasks
Impact of High Myopia:
- Higher risk of Retinal Detachment
- Macular Degeneration in Macula
- Higher risk of Glaucoma
- Cataract in later-age
What is Myopia Control Programme?
Myopia Control Programme is developed by our experienced eyecare practitioner that not just aims to correct your child’s vision, but to control the fast progression of Myopia with the use of several non-invasive treatment options such as Myopia Control Lenses and Advanced Ophthalmic Lenses.
If your child is suitable, we will prescribe a clinical proven Myopia Control Lenses – Stellest that is capable to slow down myopia progression by 67%* on average.
Just like visiting a Dentist for Orthodontic Braces, you will be seen by us on the 2nd week and every 6 monthly for review. During our programme, we aim to monitor your child’s myopia very closely and we highly recommend that your child comes for the scheduled follow-up on a regular basis.
Also, we conduct phone/video call consultation on a regular basis to keep your child’s habit in check.
