Myopia control

Myopia occurs when the eyeball grows too quickly during childhood. The prevalence among 12 year old Australian children has doubled in the last 6 years. At the ACO we offer a number of treatments that may be able to slow the progression of myopia and our experienced optometrists can help you determine the best treatment for your child. Current treatments for controlling myopia progression include Atropine eye drops, multifocal contact lenses, Orthokeratology (“ortho-k”) and multifocal eyeglasses
