The Myopia Control Centre at our offices specializes in optometric care of children and young adults with myopia (nearsightedness). In addition to providing conventional glasses for clear vision, more importantly our services include options for controlling the progression of myopia. The latter options are likely to benefit most those with early onset, i.e., whose nearsightedness developed before the age of 10 years, and/or fast progressing myopes, who are at greatest risk of becoming highly myopic. A positive family history of high myopia represents another risk factor.


Dr. Rayman uses specialty equipment and techniques to comprehensively evaluate the refractive errors (i.e. myopia) and the ocular size and shape of our patients' eyes. These measurements along with myopia progression history are used to determine an optimum management strategy, which typically involves the fitting of specialty contact lenses.


Dr. Rayman utilizes two different types of contact lenses to achieve myopia control in our patients:
1.    Rigid contact lenses (ortho-K lenses) gently reshape the cornea (the front of the eye) as the patient sleeps. In addition to controlling the progression of myopia, these lenses have the benefit of allowing patients to see clearly all day without any contacts or glasses.
2.    Specialized soft multifocal contact lenses are worn during the day and removed at night.  These lenses allow patients to see clearly when worn and help to control myopia due to their unique design properties.
