We are delighted to announce that we have started fitting new myopia-control contact lenses, designed especially for children. Increasing levels of myopia (short-sightedness) are linked with increasing risk of retinal detachment and myopic maculopathy. I have undertaken the accreditation process and am very pleased that there is now something to offer our young myopic patients. Of course we cannot make promises for any individual child, but the controlled trials were very encouraging. The children have been followed now for five years and the rate of increase in myopia is very much reduced, the children followed got on very well the lenses and there were no cases of infection.
If you would like to explore this exciting new opportunity for your children, in the first instance, ring 01382 224620, to book an appointment so we can discuss the possibilities.
