Myopia Control Solutions

Early intervention for myopia can improve your child's vision and reduce the risk of serious eye diseases in their lifetime. At Eyekonic, we prescribe proven treatments that can slow or stop and control the progression of myopia in children.

Myopia tends to develop in school-age children and often worsens as they grow. While glasses and contact lenses can help with blurry distance vision, they do not stop the progression of myopia.

Research suggests that modern lifestyles, with prolonged close-distance activities such as reading and device use, along with decreased outdoor playtime, may be contributing to the growing prevalence of childhood myopia.

Why Myopia Management Matters

Myopia is associated with a higher risk of serious eye diseases and complications, beyond just the inconvenience of needing glasses. Myopic children have a greater lifetime risk of retinal detachment, which is four times higher for those with even low levels of myopia and ten times higher for moderate to severe myopia. Myopia also increases the risk of other serious eye conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration.

How It Works

At Eyekonic, we take into consideration your child’s needs, lifestyle and prescription to personalise their myopia management.


Myopia Management FAQ

Welcome to our Myopia Management FAQ section, where we answer some of the most commonly asked questions about myopia and its management.

What is Myopia?

Myopia, also known as near-sightedness or short-sightedness, is a refractive error that causes distant objects to appear blurry. It occurs when the eye is too long which causes light to focus in front of the retina instead of on it.

Why is Myopia a concern?

Childhood myopia significantly increases the risk of developing serious sight-threatening diseases later in life, such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment, and age-related macular degeneration. The higher the degree of myopia, the greater the risk of these diseases.

Can Myopia be prevented?

Currently, there is no way to fully prevent myopia. However, certain lifestyle factors can delay myopia onset in children, such as spending ample time in the sunlight, limiting daily screen time, and taking frequent breaks from near activities.

What are the options for Myopia management?

Currently there are 3 approved options available to control myopia progression. These are:

  1. Myopia-control spectacles lenses
  2. Myopia-control soft contact lenses
  3. Orthokeratology night time contact lenses

The effects of atropine eye drops are still being studied and may also be prescribed.

Does Myopia management work?

Yes! Clinical trials have shown that myopia management methods are effective in reducing the progression of myopia.

When does Myopia stop progressing?

Each individual will differ. Myopia usually stabilises by the early-to-mid 20s.
