Children tend to become more nearsighted as they age but a new study performed by optometrist in Singapore have concluded that wearing contact lenses slows down the increase or even stop it. Other research that optometrist are doing that is very exciting is the use of dilating drops to reduce the myope increase or creep. This works internally in the eye because dilation prevents the crystalline lens from enlarging to accommodate when reading allowing a less forceful growth of the eye leading to myopia. Interesting research.
