Special Contact Lenses to Reduce Myopia Progression

Myopia or short-sightedness is a refractive eye disorder where the affected person can see near objects clearly but has difficulty with focusing on distant objects. Either the eyeball is too long from front to behind, or the lens inside the eye is too curved; both these factors do not allow the formation of a clear image. Myopia is treated with corrective lenses or laser surgery once the child grows up. A company that manufactures contact lenses has tested a particular type of contact lens in a three-year long that could possibly reduce the progression of myopia or short-sightedness in young children.
