Title
(EN) Methods, devices, and systems for inhibiting ocular refractive disorders from progressing
Abstract
(EN)

A method for retarding or reversing progression of myopia of a viewer contains the steps of using an immersive or non-immersive device to create a plurality of image planes in the eye of the viewer. While an image plane is located on the retina, at least one image plane is not on the retina, thereby generating myopic defocus. Immersive and non-immersive devices and systems for such a method are also described.
