Myopia Management

Myopia (or short-sightedness) is caused by the eye being too long. Distance vision is blurred and spectacles or contact lenses are necessary to make the vision clear.

Until recently, there has been no way of avoiding myopia but recent studies have shown that a new type of lens can slow, and in some cases halt, myopia progression.

At Baird Optometrists, we offer Hoya MiyoSmart spectacle lenses which uses D.I.M.S technology (Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments) which has been shown in studies to reduce myopia on average by 60%.

Alternatively, Coopervision MiSight daily disposable contact lenses use ActivControl technology to slow progression of myopia by 59%.
