Title: SYSTEMS, METHODS AND DEVICES FOR CONTROLLING THE PROGRESSION OF MYOPIA
Abstract:
An ophthalmic lens system for reducing the risk of progression of a myopic eye by selectively maintaining, inducing or creating asymmetry of the peripheral retinal profile for the eye. A method for reducing the risk of progression of myopia comprising determining the magnitude of asymmetry of the on-axis/off-axis refractive error profile or eye length profile of the eye and providing an ophthalmic lens system that corrects for and provides acceptable on-axis vision and simultaneously controls the position of the off-axis refractive error profile or eye length profile such that resultant profile of the eye is asymmetric.
