What are the Goals of Myopia Control?

It should be understood: Myopia is a refractive error and cannot be “cured”. Our goal is to slow the progression and avoid visual difficulties and associated complications.

The goal of myopia control is to reduce the progression to less than 0.3 diopters per year from an average of 0.75 diopters or more with standard refractive care. As well, a major reason to prevent progression is to reduce the risk of long term associated pathologies:

Rate of progression: 

  • Specs: 0.30 to 0.39 mm per year (-0.75 D to -1.00 D)
  • Goal of Myopia Control: < 0.20 mm (<-0.50 D)
  • Preferred goal is < 0.1 mm (or <-0.25 D)
