Recent studies indicate that the incidence of Myopia (short-sightedness) is on a steep rise, with 5 billion people predicted to be affected by the year 2050. 

The latest research is also indicating an alarming incidence of myopia (short-sightedness) as children spend more time on near tasks/digital devices. We are dedicated to implementing the latest approaches to slow down myopia progression as a way of preventing more serious eye pathologies later in life. That is why myopia control is of great importance.
