Nearsighted kids have to wear glasses to correct their lack of eye focus, but this doesn't cure the problem and may actually make the problem worse over time. A new type of contact lens refocuses light and coaxes the eye to grow in a different way.
Myopia develops when a person's eye is elongated, which makes it difficult for the lens to focus light onto the far-away retina. Glasses for nearsightedness fix the focus, but they can create farsightedness in the retina. As people get older, the eye grows to move the retina to where the light is — so it gets more elongated, exacerbating the problem, according to the Optical Society of America.
These contacts change how light is focused in the retina, which in turn changes eye growth so it doesn't stretch out extensively. Contacts based on this design could soon be available for optometrists to prescribe to children, the OSA says.
As long as these contacts don't squeeze the eye or perform any other type of ocular torture — besides the inherent torture in inserting and removing the contacts — they seem like a sound solution.
warning: only in home use... or you will be picked the s### out of your kids !
bored? lets go mine the stars... ^^
Wow...could there be any less in an article and still be able to call it an article? There's a brief description of an item (a pretty cool idea at that) stated by a professional association but no other information. For next time, here's a list of questions to ask that might help build some content:
- Are these lenses commercially available now? If not, when?
- Who developed these lenses? How long did it take?
- Are they in use clinically?
- What are some of the wearers experiences with the lenses?
- What are the maintenance and care issues for the wearer?
- What will the cost?
- Are their any undesirable after effects from the therapy?
Do this and it might help bring the career of "journalism" out of that dark little doorway down the alley where you've been curled up masturbating for so long.
@vt007...you must be joking, those are obviously glasses in the photo, not contacts - @templarknight...quit being lazy and click on the link, negative cheers
Indeed contact lens is a solution if you want to go thru "torture" to get rid of <a href="http://nearsightednesscauseeyevisiontreatment.com">nearsighted vision</a>. However, it is also found in some cases that dependency on more powerful lens increases with constantly deteriorating eyes. Don't know why? Any Idea?
Or else is better to get it corrected as far as possible thru natural eye strengthening exercises?
