Children Myopia Control Centres provide a better solution of myopia control for your kids.

Myopia rate of children in Hong Kong is one of the highest in the world. Clinical study found that the peak period of myopia progression of Chinese children is between the ages of 6-101. Children whose parents both have myopia are more likely to develop myopia2. Changes in lifestyle such as more frequent use of digital devices has increased their time spent on reading at close distances and reduced outdoor activities. This is likely to give rise to rapid myopia progression and result in high myopia.


People with high myopia have to rely on their glasses heavily, which brings about inconvenience in daily life. The higher the myopia, the more fragile the retina is. It also increases the risk of suffering from eye diseases such as cataract, glaucoma3, 4 and retinal detachment. Therefore, we should be cautious to the myopia development in our children. Appropriate treatments should be taken to control myopia progression so that children can maintain clear vision during their precious period of school life.
