We are at the forefront of combating the escalating issue of myopia, particularly in children and adolescents. Recognized for its impact on both visual acuity and long-term ocular health, myopia management has become a vital part of our practice, focusing not only on improving immediate vision but also on preventing future eye-related complications.

Understanding Myopia

Myopia, or nearsightedness, is not merely about blurry vision; it's a progressive ocular condition that can lead to severe eye diseases such as cataracts, retinal detachment, and macular degeneration later in life. The primary concern is the elongation of the eyeball, which stretches the retina and can increase the risk of retinal tears and detachments.

Innovative Myopia Control Strategies

At VRC, we deploy multiple cutting-edge strategies to manage myopia:

Multifocal Optical Solutions: Both glasses and contact lenses are designed with multiple focus areas to help correct vision at different distances. This setup is crucial in managing the progression of myopia by reducing the strain on the eyes during close-up activities, a known risk factor for myopia progression.

Orthokeratology (Ortho-K): This non-surgical approach involves specially designed contact lenses that are worn overnight. These lenses temporarily reshape the cornea, allowing for clear daytime vision without the need for glasses or contacts.

Specialized Spectacle Lenses: Technologies like the Essilor Stellest and Hoya MiYOSMART lenses utilize advanced designs to slow myopia progression. These lenses feature strategic zones that focus peripheral light rays differently, which may help control the elongation of the eyeball by sending a 'slow-down' signal for eye growth.

Long-Term Benefits of Myopia Control

The primary aim of myopia control is to enhance life quality, ensuring that vision remains stable and deteriorates less rapidly between eye examinations. This stability is crucial for academic performance, sports, and daily activities. Furthermore, controlling myopia from a young age significantly reduces the long-term risks of developing severe ocular diseases.


Optique et Vision's VRC is committed to providing a comprehensive and proactive approach to myopia management. By integrating advanced optical solutions and cutting-edge technology, we aim to protect our patients' vision and enhance their quality of life. For parents concerned about their children's visual health and individuals experiencing myopia progression, our tailored strategies offer hope and effective solutions.
