MiSight

MiSight lenses

The first FDA approved 1 day disposable contact lens for myopia management.  3 yr results show a 52% reduction in eye growth when treatment was started between ages 8-12.  The latest 6 year results show that 23% of wearers’ prescriptions were clinically stable.

Ortho-k

Orthokeratology

Sleep in specially designed lenses that gently reshape the eye overnight resulting in clear vision during the day without spectacles or contact lenses.  A large body of evidence shows that Ortho-k typically reduces eye growth by approximately 50% over a 2-year study period.

Ultrawidefield Imaging

Our myopia management consultations start with a full assessment of the health of the eyes. This includes the Optomap retinal examination which offers the most advanced retinal examination. We also perform a cycloplegia refraction where the eyes’ focus is stabilised in order to determine the most accurate optical prescription. The way both eyes work together will also be checked.

Lenstar Axial Length

Offering treatments is one thing but being to tell how effective the treatments are is quite another. Relying on the optical prescription alone to provide information on the effectiveness of treatment is up to 6 times less sensitive than measuring the length of the eye using advanced technologies like the Lenstar. The Lenstar is used by many of the World’s leading cataract surgeons.

Myopia Reports

During each consultation we will produce a personalised myopia report for your child. This report will show the difference with and without treatment as well as the effect of treatment over time. We will also provide you with stunning patient education animations that you can watch with your child directly at home so you have a clear understanding of the treatment process.

When is the Best Time to Treat?

ANSWER: as early as possible.

All currently validated treatments for myopia management have been shown to reduce the rate of eye growth on average by at least 50% per year. The effectiveness of these treatments depends on the age of the child and duration of the treatment. Therefore, it makes sense to start treatment as early possible.
