What is Myopia Control?
Myopia is short sight, when distant objects appear blurred. In growing children, short sight can progressively worsen, meaning that a child will have to wear stronger glasses in adulthood and it can also lead to long term eye health issues
Myopia Control is the use by optometrists of different techniques to try and slow or even stop this worsening short sight in children.
Airedale Opticians have been treating myopia for many years and is the only practice in Yorkshire able to monitor the treatment with specialist equipment that allows us to track the growth of the eye (axial length biometry*).
We allow more time for our children’s appointments, giving our optometrists a better chance to identify and monitor your child’s short sight over time – read more about our children’s eye examination
