Optical Control of Myopia Has Come of Age: Or Has It?

Aller, Thomas*; Wildsoet, Christine

doi: 10.1097/OPX.0b013e31828b47cf

This article presents a clinical perspective on recent myopia research related to the development and testing of optical treatments for controlling myopia progression. The perspective is from that of a clinician in private practice and a clinician researcher, both with long-term involvement in myopia management and research.
