What are some of the methods you use for myopia control?
First we have diluted atropine drops, second is a specially designed rigid contact lens which is only worn at night which offers perfect vision during the day without glasses or contacts, and then third option is soft multi-focal lenses which are to be worn during the day. Any and all of these methods can be used alone, or together, and in conjunction with certain types of glasses, to help slow the rate of change – the further lengthening of the eye.
