Myopia Management/Control

Is your child suitable for Myopia (Progression) Management?

Children playingMyopia or short-sightedness causes blurred distance vision. It normally begins in childhood, being more common in children who have a myopic parent, although sometimes there is no family history.

Myopia is increasing worldwide with some calling this a ‘myopia boom’. In East Asia some 90% of children are now myopic. Prevalence has also doubled within a century in Europe and in Australia. In 12 year olds it doubled between 2006 and 2011!

This is a worrying public health issue, as short sight is connected with a number of more serious eye problems in later life such as retinal detachment, cataract, glaucoma & maculopathy. With every increase in myopia, the risk of developing these conditions increases.

Contact Lens Clinic Brochure

Andrew D PriceMrs Elizabeth Ralph and I prescribe a large range of contact lenses (legally they are medically devices so only registered Contact Lens Opticians, optometrists and doctors are allowed to do this). I also provide first-class aftercare services to support your successful wear. Many lens options are available, which can be a little bewildering, I will give you expert guidance.

We hold specialist qualifications in contact lens practice and teach other practitioners on the subjects of contact lenses and dry eye, our aim is to find the lens type that suits your lifestyle and gives you the best possible vision and comfort. Every eye is unique, we use exams and tests to identify pre-existing conditions that all too often are the cause of lens wear not being successful – if you have stopped contact lens wear in the past, as many do, it could well be these conditions, which can be improved, were missed.

If you have been told you are not suitable for contact lenses a second opinion could be worthwhile. We particularly welcome the more interesting cases: astigmatism; multifocal; post-ocular surgery; post-LASIK; myopia control, etc.

We like to think we are always looking for steps forward in our examinations and care for our patients, so not every test, exam, treatment, therapy or product is delivered in the same way by every practitioner at the same time, as we evaluate and constantly look to improve our already excellent results.
