What is myopia control?

Myopia (short-sightedness) is where an individual is not able to see things far away without glasses or contact lenses.
Historically, people with myopia were prescribed single vision spectacle or contact lenses. If their myopia got worse the prescription in these lenses was adjusted to make sure they could see distant objects clearly.

Studies have shown that the worldwide incidence of myopia is increasing.
It is predicted that by the year 2050 half the world’s population will be myopic. Some researchers suggest that changes to how we use our eyes are responsible for this increase in myopia.
Specifically, increased use of smartphones, iPads and computers and a decrease in outdoor time.
