The aim of the series is to educate the wider optometric profession in the important of myopia screening, the risks associated with myopia and how we can slow down myopia progression in children with the various treatment options available to us.
What are my options for myopia management?
There are an ever-growing list of options we can exploit to not only correct your child myopia but also potentially slow the progression of the myopia. The options can be separated into contact lens options and spectacle options. Spectacle options are present are limited to Hoya’s MiYOSMART spectacles lenses. However, the UK release of several other designs is imminent.
Contact lenses offer a wider variety of options and include:
- MiSight 1 day contact lenses

- Mylo Contact Lenses
- Orthokeratology (OrthoK)
- Off-label contact lenses options
