Multifocal Contact Lenses

Multifocal Contact Lenses are contact lenses that Multifocal contact lenses contain more than one prescription and may be used to control myopia. Multifocal lenses allow patients to see clearly at a distance and up close, all with one lens. This reduces eye strain and the progression of myopia.

Atropine eye drops have been shown to reduce the progression of myopia. They temporarily dilate the pupils and relax the eye’s focusing mechanism. By reducing the eye’s ability to change focus, atropine can help reduce focusing fatigue and eye strain, which are commonly thought to influence the progression of myopia.
