Common Myths


Myopia is no big deal

This is not true. Myopia can worsen very quickly without any intervention, and ANY DEGREE OF MYOPIA INCREASES THE RISK OF DEVELOPING SIGHT-THREATENING EYE DISEASES such as glaucoma, retinal detachment, myopic maculopathy and more. [1] [2]


Once you are myopic, there is nothing you can do.

This is not true. MYOPIA CONTROL can help!! MYOPIA CONTROL is a fast-growing field and there are many ways in which myopia can be managed other than just glasses. These include specially designed hard contact lenses, soft contact lenses, spectacles, and eye drops. [1]


Contact lens wear is dangerous for children

This is not true. There is scientific evidence for the safety of contact lens wear in children. A study showed there are no additional risk of lens-related infections for children aged 8-12 compared to a teenager. [1] Rather, children appear to be safer in soft contact lenses than teens, likely due to better compliance and closer parental supervision. [2] Another shows that the risk of eye infection is very low even with these specially designed contact lenses. [3] [4]
