Myopia Management is a critical part of modern practice. Caring for young patients’ short and long-term visual health is the duty of all ECPs. 

EyeDream MC for Myopia Management

Ortho-k lenses are widely acknowledged for their effectiveness in reducing myopia progression. But when it comes to Myopia Management every diopter counts. That’s why we’ve developed EyeDream® MC, an ortho-k lens designed specifically for Myopia Management.

Why Myopia Management is Important

The global myopia epidemic

 In the last 50 years, the prevalence of myopia in the UK has more than doubled – from 10% in the 1960s to 23% in the 2000s3. It is predicted that by 2050 more than 50% of the global population will be myopic4.

  • 2023 – Myopia affects almost 30% of the worlds population 30% 30%
  • 2050 – estimated that 50% of people will be myopic 50% 50%
  • 2050 – estimated that 10% of people will > -5.50D 10% 10%

Why is this happening? Who is at risk?5

So far, studies have suggested that children are at more risk of developing myopia if they…

U

spend prolonged periods at near work

spend less time outdoors

have parents with myopia

are female. Studies suggest girls more susceptible

are of East Asian ethnicity

s

Why does this matter? What are the impacts?

  • Complications associated with high myopia can be sight threatening – for example myopic macular degeneration and retinal detachment.
  • Poor or uncorrected vision can impact educational attainment leading psychosocial stress. Negative attitudes to spectacle wear may also affect this.
  • Studies show that myopic children experience a poorer quality of life (QOL). QOL is lower whether the myopia is corrected or uncorrected and is also affected by the mode of visual correction.
  • Given the progressive nature of myopia, costs can be extensive (depending on the type of vision correction)

What can ECPs do about this?

Intervention is critical…

Encourage myopic parents to help their children spend time outside

Studies show that 40 to 80 mins per day spent outdoors could reduce the chance of a child becoming myopic.   

For children who are already myopic, proceed with myopia management.

There are many effective methods, including EyeDream® MC and soft contact lenses such as MiSight® 1 day.
