Scientific Research on Myopia Management

The rapid spreading of myopia (nearsightedness) in children is cause for concern, not only to individual parents but to society in general. Scientists have been investigating potential causes and researching possible prevention methodologies.

Currently, myopia management is gradually replacing simple myopia correction. Find here some of the most significant underlying research reports supporting different methods of myopia management.
