My-iClinic launches myopia services for children

The clinic is designed to reduce the rate of myopia in young children

sight test

A myopia control clinic for children offering MiSight multifocal contact lenses and atropine 0.01% treatment has been launched at My-iClinic.

Clinic director and consultant ophthalmologist at My-iClinic, John Bolger, said: “The treatment is to try and stop the progression so that someone who may be on course to become -6, may actually stop at -2.”

The clinic provides new tests for children at each follow-up appointment and a personalised course based on the results of the these tests.

Highlighting research from Singapore, Mr Bolger said that the consequences of atropine “seem to be almost zero.”
