"Myopia control" is the term used to describe specific treatments to slow the progression of short-sightedness in children.

Myopia control is important because it may help reduce the risk of vision-threatening complications associated with high myopia later in life — including glaucoma, cataracts, retinal detachment and even blindness.

Wearing special contact lenses or spectacles can help slow the progression of myopia in some children.
