Multifocal Contact Lenses
For multifocal contact lenses: Multifocal contact lenses are the newest trend in controlling the progression of myopia in children. For kids with parameters outside the range of treatment for CRT/Ortho-K lenses, soft multifocal lenses are a great option! This is also a great option for kids who are too afraid to wear a hard contact lens to sleep. Children wearing multifocal lenses had 25 percent less myopia progression and 31 percent less axial elongation than those wearing single-vision lenses over two years, according to a 2014 double-blind, randomized, controlled trial of 221 Hong Kong children. The kids were ages 8 to 13 with myopia between -1.00 and -5.00 dioptres. Other studies showed an even greater treatment effect for the myopia group as compared with the control group.
