Kids' Myopia Control
Many eye doctors have recently tried to control myopia (nearsightedness) in children by slowing its progression and therefore impact healthy vision. Although there are many ways to slow myopia Kent Eye Clinic can provide the expertise needed on how to best help your child with this issue.
International research in myopia control abounds and is always being updated with a newer methodology. Typical approaches are Orthokeratology / OrthoK and multifocal contact lenses.(Atropine eye drops and multifocal glasses are slowly being discontinued because of their drawbacks & ineffectiveness compared to OrthoK & mutlifocals.)
