Myopia Management Clinic
Myopia Management Clinic
In 2013 Peter Ivins Eye Care were the first practice in Scotland to launch a dedicated Myopia Management Clinic. The aim of our myopia management clinic is to identify children at risk of progressive myopia and offer advice and management options to slow the progression of myopia.
Myopia - short-sightedness
Myopia (short-sightedness) involves the eyeball being too long or too powerful. This results in blurred distance vision, however vision for close objects is clear within a certain range of distances. Please watch the video for more information about myopia.
What is myopia control?
Myopia Control aims to decrease the risk of development of myopia and reduce the progression (worsening) of myopia in young children.
Our Most Common Treatment
MiSight 1 day
MiSight™ contact lenses utilise ActivControl™ Technology which results in clear distance, intermediate and near vision while the peripheral treatment zones of the lens creates myopic retinal defocus that has been shown to control the rate of progression of myopia.
Custom-made soft reusable contact lenses
The bespoke lens is a monthly silicone hydrogel soft contact lens that combines a selective blue light blocking filter with a 1st Class UV Filter.
Day long correction of up 8 dioptres of Short Sight by wearing a specially designed Contact Lens whilst asleep – like surgery but without any of the risks!
