Title: MyoVision - 30% reduction in progression of myopia in kids
Post by: mailliam on August 26, 2013, 01:04:50 PM
I thought some people might find this interesting. I stumbled upon it today.

It's a pair of glasses that has normal central vision correction, and what seems to be an undercorrection in the periphery.

The bottom of this page describes how it works:

It sounds like a limited version of plus lens therapy. Keeps the central vision corrected so normal activities can still be done and adds a bit of stimulus in the periphery to slow elongation.
