WHAT IS MYOPIA

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness is when your eyeball lengthens beyond what is normal and causes your distance vision to become blurry.

IMPORTANCE OF MYOPIA CONTROL

Preventing the increase of myopia is the key to your children’s future eye health. A high degree of myopia is linked to a high risk for sight-threatening disease such as Glaucoma, retinal detachment  and other retinal degenerative diseases to develop. The study to investigate the effects of a special soft ortho-k lens to slow down the progression of myopia

What is Myopia

HOW THE STUDY WORKS

Over the course of two years, investigators will work with 50 nearsighted children between age of 7-12 in Northern California and the Seattle Areas. This is a double-blind study, where participants will wear  the soft myopia control lenses for one year and regular contact lenses for one year, but not know when they are wearing either lens so as not to impact the results.

Each year investigator will use an IOL Master to take a computerized photo of the eyeball to measure the degree of myopia, and every six months investigators will be able to chart the patient’s progression of myopia in one year  without treatment lenses and one year with the myopia control lenses to see how much the lenses had on the progression of myopia in 50 participants.

Participating in this study is free for all participants, as the study cover the cost of all contact lenses and solution for two years. The participants only need to visit the clinic once every six month, so that their eyes can be measured  by our eye doctors. These visits are also covered at no charge to participants.
