About these contact lenses

Multifocal contact lenses are an effective treatment for myopia in children. They are similar to multifocal contact lenses used by middle-aged people. However, these myopia-specific, soft contact lenses are for younger eyes.

In fact, myopia multifocal contact lenses have undergone rigorous clinical studies to test their effectiveness. In 2008 the first of these studies found that using multifocal contact lenses can slow the progression of myopia. Indeed, more recent studies have shown soft multifocal contact lens wear resulted in a 50% reduction in the progression of myopia in children.

How myopia multifocal contact lenses work

Myopia multifocal lenses are soft lenses with two portions – a central part as well as an outer rim. The central part focuses light directly on the retina which makes distance vision clear. The outer portion uses high-add power to focus light in front of the retina. Researchers believe this prompts the eye to slow its growth, so slowing the progression of myopia.
