Myopia Control Clinic in Delhi

A Myopia Control Clinic in Delhi is a healthcare facility specializing in preventing and managing myopia, also known as nearsightedness. PEDIA VISION Children's Eye Care is particularly focused on children, as early intervention can significantly slow down the progression of myopia.

Nearsightedness, also called myopia, is when faraway objects look blurry but close objects are clear. It happens when the eyeball is too long compared to the cornea and lens focusing power. This makes light rays focus in front of the retina, causing blurry vision.

The services offered by Child Eye Specialist clinics include advanced testing and diagnosis, prescription of progressive glasses, Defocus Integrated Multiple Segment (DIMS) Glasses, multifocal contact lenses, and Atropine eye drops.

The clinics are staffed by eye care professionals who are experts in the field of myopia control.

What are the symptoms of  Myopia?

Several Symptoms of Myopia are:

Headache (from straining the eyes)

• Tightening eyes to focus on far-off objects.

• Nighttime photophobia.

• Hazy eyesight from a distance.


What are the symptoms of  Myopia in Children?

Several Symptoms of Myopia in Children are:

• Blink eyes frequently

• Squinting 

• Sitting closer to a screen 

• Holding things or books  near the eyes 

• Rubbing of Eyes Frequently

• Shorter attention capacity

• Poor grades (lack of ability to see the board in the classroom).




Several factors can cause the development of myopia:

  1. Genetics: Myopia often runs in families. If one or both parents have myopia, there is a higher likelihood that their children will also develop myopia.
  2. Environmental Factors: Engaging in activities that require close-up work, such as reading or using a computer for long periods, can increase the chances of developing myopia.
  3. Lack of Outdoor Activities: Research suggests that spending excessive time indoors and not getting enough exposure to natural sunlight can raise the risk of myopia.
  4. Age: Myopia can begin during childhood, but adults who frequently engage in reading or close work may also have a higher susceptibility to developing myopia.




With the increasing prevalence of myopia, particularly among the Asian population and in urban environments like Delhi, myopia control clinics play a crucial role in eye health management.

Prevention of High Myopia: High myopia is a severe form of nearsightedness that can lead to significant vision problems. By controlling the progression of myopia at an early stage, it can be prevented from developing into high myopia.

Reduced Risk of Eye Diseases: High myopia increases the risk of various eye diseases, including glaucoma, cataracts, retinal detachment, and myopic macular degeneration. Controlling myopia can help reduce the risk of these serious eye conditions.

Improved Quality of Life: Myopia can affect a person's quality of life by impacting their ability to perform everyday tasks like reading, driving, or playing sports. By controlling myopia, a person's vision can be maintained, thereby improving their quality of life.

Cost-Effective: The cost of treating high myopia and its associated complications can be high. On the other hand, myopia control methods are a cost-effective way to manage the condition and prevent future eye health issues.

Prevention of Vision Loss: In severe cases, high myopia can lead to permanent vision loss. Myopia control is a proactive approach to prevent such severe outcomes.



Myopia cannot be reversed. But certain measures can help prevent or slow its progression in your child.

  • 1.5 to 2 hours/day or 10-12 hours a week of outdoor activities where the child has exposure to natural sunlight like playing in the park, cycling, walking, or any physical activity outdoors. Sunlight exposure has been associated with reduced progression in eye power due to the release of dopamine. Promote outdoor activities to the maximum possible.
  • Avoid or minimize exposure to digital devices and computer games, as these activities increase the risk of myopia, and also reduce attention span, learning, creativity, and mental health.
  • Frequent eye breaks should be taken from near work or a computer screen (20-20-20 rule: look 20 feet away for 20 seconds every 20 minutes). This helps relax the eye muscles and avoid increased strain at near.
  • Read with good or natural ambient lighting and in the proper position. Do not lie down and study.
  • Myopia progression is also associated with a higher intake of carbohydrates and sugar. Avoid eating junk food and sweets. Have a more antioxidants and protein-rich diet.


Treatment of Myopia in Delhi: Advanced Testing and Diagnosis at Child Eye Specialist

Myopia is a common eye condition in Delhi. There are several treatment options available to manage it effectively.

Myopia is quite prevalent in Delhi, with school-based studies reporting a prevalence ranging from 2.5% to 13% among 5-19-year-old subjects. A population-based study also noted a prevalence of 7.4% in the same age group.


Treatment Options for Myopia:

Myopia can be diagnosed through a basic eye examination, including a refraction error eye test to identify vision problems.

After doing all the necessary tests like refraction, dynamic, and cycloplegia refraction under dilatation, the child can be advised of treatment options.

The eye is thoroughly examined to rule out any other structural or developmental causes of myopia. The treatment options for myopia in Delhi are:

- Corrective lenses(Conventional glasses) are commonly used to treat myopia by adjusting the focus of light onto the retina for clearer vision.

- Orthokeratology (Ortho-K) is a non-surgical alternative that involves wearing specially designed contact lenses overnight to temporarily reshape the cornea, resulting in clear vision during the day without the need for glasses or contacts.

- Refractive surgery, such as LASIK, PRK, or SMILE, can permanently change the shape of the cornea to correct myopia.

- Pharmacological treatments may include the use of low-dose atropine eye drops, which are sometimes prescribed to slow down the progression of myopia in children.

- Implantable Collamer lenses (ICLs) can be an option for those who are not suitable for refractive surgery. These lenses are placed inside the eye to correct vision.

- Making lifestyle adjustments, such as spending more time in outdoor activities and reducing close-up activities, may help slow down the progression of myopia in children.

In the case of associated squint like exotropia or esotropia, the treatment options are modified accordingly. 

We focus on giving the best correction to your child to maintain good eyesight and least or no progression.

Frequently asked question

To reduce myopia naturally, you can consider the following methods based on the provided sources:

Spend Time Outdoors: Spending at least 15-20 minutes outdoors each day in a safe place with sufficient UV protection can help reduce the development of myopia.

Healthy Diet: Eating foods high in vitamins A and C, such as oranges, bell peppers, blueberries, spinach, kale, almonds, eggs, salmon, and apricots, can improve vision health and reduce inflammation caused by oxidative stress.

Eye Exercises: Blinking your eyes quickly 10 times, then closing your eyes for 20 seconds, and repeating this exercise 5 to 10 times when your eyes feel tired can help stimulate the eye muscles.

Reduce Screen Time: Avoid looking at screens for extended periods and take breaks to reduce eye strain. Remember to take breaks from screens! Every 20 minutes, look at something 20 feet away for 20 seconds.

Get Enough Rest: Ensure you get 7-8 hours of sleep per day and avoid looking at screens before bed to help maintain eye health and reduce myopia progression. These natural methods can complement traditional treatments like corrective lenses or surgery and may help slow down the progression of myopia.

Screen time can impact myopia by potentially increasing the risk of developing or worsening nearsightedness. Studies have shown that excessive screen time, especially on smart devices and computers, can be associated with a higher risk of myopia in children and teens. Spending more than 2 hours a day on screens has been linked to a more myopic refraction, higher odds of myopia, increased refractive astigmatism, shorter corneal radius, and higher axial length/corneal radius ratio. Excessive screen time may lead to eye strain, fatigue, headaches, blurred vision, dry eyes, and other symptoms that can contribute to the progression of myopia.

Yes, high myopia can be controlled through various strategies and treatments. Research suggests that lowering intraocular pressure (IOP) may play a role in controlling high myopia progression, particularly in cases of progressive high myopia. Additionally, pharmaceutical management with atropine has shown promising results in slowing myopia progression, especially when combined with other strategies like OrthoK or multifocal spectacles. Furthermore, corneal refractive therapy (CRT) and orthokeratology (Ortho-k) are non-invasive treatment options that can effectively control myopia progression, particularly in children, by flattening and reshaping the cornea to change the way the eye focuses. These approaches, along with behavioral modifications and optical interventions, offer effective ways to manage and control high myopia.

Myopia typically stabilizes and stops progressing in the mid-20s, but around one-third of individuals may still experience slower myopia progression throughout their 20s. This means that myopia management should ideally continue until myopia becomes stable and stops progressing, which may extend beyond the teenage years into early adulthood.

Yes, LASIK surgery is an effective and permanent solution for correcting myopia (nearsightedness). LASIK works by reshaping the cornea to allow light to focus properly on the retina, improving visual clarity. This surgical procedure can significantly reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses for everyday activities like driving. LASIK is a viable method for correcting myopia, including cases of high myopia, with few complications and high patient satisfaction rates.
