A few products are leading the way for myopia control.
Wearing eyeglasses with the right lenses can curb the effect myopia has on vision. The optical industry has been developing specialty lenses in recent years that help correct errors associated with nearsightedness. Ask our eyewear experts about lens options that can help your child’s vision stabilize.
