Review of Myopilux lenses from W Optics -Myopia Control Centre

I didn’t realise Kaiser had myopia till his form teacher watsapp me to tell me that Kaiser is a big slow in terms of copying things from the board and suggested that I bring him to do an eye check up.

What is Myopia?

If someone is able to see near objects clearly but is having blurred vision, eye strain, headaches or is squinting while seeing things at a distance then, that person may have myopia.

In childhood, it usually take a progressive form that starts during the child’s growing years and worsens throughout childhood.  It usually stabilises in the mid-teens.

It is important to control the progression of myopia because:

  • Myopia worsens children’s eyesight
  • Myopia decreases children’s quality of life
  • Worsening myopia increases the risk of children suffering severe eye issues in the future, such as glaucoma and retinal detachment

Wearing glasses can be very inconvenient for a seven year old active boy but he had no choice but to wear it so that he can see clearly.  His condition on 13 Jul 2017 was:

Right Eye

Spherical       Cylindrical

 – 1.25             – 0.75

Left Eye

Spherical       Cylindrical

– 1.50              0

First Visit to W Optics -Myopia Control Centre

After I heard fromW Optics about the Myopia Control Program using Myopilux which they offer together with Essilor, I was keen to check it out.  This program is endorsed by Singapore Optometric Association and normally last aroung 6 months up to 12 months.

At the Myopia Control Centre, there is a panel of professional Optometrists who have many years of experience in managing myopia progression in children.

W Optics flagship store is located at 3 Temasek Boulevard #01-400/401 Suntec City Mall, Singapore 038983.

I didn’t realise the store was so huge till I walked all the way in!

The environment was cozy and there were sofas for customers to sit down while waiting for their consultations or collect spectacles.  There were many brands of spectacle brands to choose from.  If I were there to buy one, I would be spoilt for choices.

During our first visit, an Optometrist from W Optics, Mr Chew was assigned to check Kaiser’s eyesight.  He was extremely thorough in checking and explaining the various steps in details to ascertain the results.

Kaiser also went through the colour test to make sure that he does not suffer from colour blindness.

The first consultation was very comprehensive hence do allocate enough time to sit through it.  I would say around 1.5 hrs will be sufficient.

Kaiser was asked to identify letters and numbers on a screen that that placed some distance from him.

I could tell that his myopia had increased as he was squinting to see some of the letters or numbers on the screen.

After numerous tests, Mr Chew checked the conditions of Kaiser’s eyes through a machine.

Singapore is the ‘Myopia Capital of the world” whereby 65%* of primary school students are affected.  It is a definite cause of concern as the earlier a child develops myopia, the higher the likelihood that he or she will develop severe myopia later in life.

After all the necessary tests were done, it was the moment of truth.  Kaiser’s eyesight has actually deteriorated fast within a short span of 4 months… omg!

His condition as of 19 Oct 2017 was:

Right Eye

Spherical       Cylindrical

 – 2.00             – 0.75

Left Eye

Spherical       Cylindrical

– 2.75            – 0.25

Mr Chew gave me a few options and after going back home to consider the pros and cons of each options, I decided on Myopilux Max, a clinically proven most effective spectacle lens solution to control the worsening of myopia.

Myopilux

… How it works?

One of the key reasons of myopia progressing among children is due to the strain they put on their eyes while looking at near objects.  The more they do this, the worse the myopia gets.

Myopilux Max is a prismatic bifocal lens that has proven to work against myopia progression versus normal single vision lenses. It also helps reduce the progression of axial elongation, thereby reducing the risk factor for many eye-related diseases such as glaucoma, retinal detachment and macular degeneration. Myopilux Max offers the widest field of vision possible in an ophthalmic lens.

Myopilux Max helps correct far vision and reduces strain for near vision thereby correcting and controlling** Myopia at the same time.  It is superior to single vision lenses, which only corrects far vision without helping to reduce strain on near vision.

  • Additionally, Myopilux® Max is also a non-invasive & safe solution that has been designed for myopic children by international experts of myopia. 

Second Visit to W Optics -Myopia Control Centre

Our second visit was to collect the pair of spectacles which Kaiser chose and fitted with myopilux lenses.

The Optometrist guided both myself and Kaiser on how he should wear the spectacles properly.

She mentioned that the middle line where the lenses were joined should be in the middle of the eye pupils when we looked straight ahead.

Kaiser was super excited to collect his new pair of spectacles while I am eager to start him on this Myopia control journey with Myopilux.

Thanks W Optics for the wonderful experience!  If you are a parent whose child had myopia, then I would strongly recommend you to visit W Optics to find out more about Myopilux® and how it can benefit your child.

Apart from their flagship store in Suntec City, they do have 9 other stores in Singapore whereby you can bring your kids to make Myopia Control lenses same as Kaiser did.

  58. I have learned newer and more effective things via your weblog. One other thing I’d prefer to say is the fact newer computer operating systems are likely to allow additional memory to use, but they likewise demand more memory space simply to work. If someone’s computer can’t handle a lot more memory as well as newest software requires that ram increase, it can be the time to buy a new Laptop. Thanks

  59. Interesting blog post. The things i would like to contribute is that personal computer memory must be purchased if the computer is unable to cope with that which you do with it. One can add two RAM memory boards having 1GB each, for instance, but not certainly one of 1GB and one of 2GB. One should make sure the company’s documentation for own PC to make certain what type of storage is necessary.

  60. Interesting blog post. A few things i would like to add is that laptop memory has to be purchased in case your computer still cannot cope with that which you do along with it. One can put in two good old ram boards with 1GB each, as an illustration, but not one of 1GB and one of 2GB. One should make sure the maker’s documentation for own PC to ensure what type of memory is necessary.

  61. We stumbled over here coming from a different web address and thought I should check things out. I like what I see so now i am following you. Look forward to looking into your web page yet again.

  62. Thanks for the points you have provided here. Yet another thing I would like to express is that personal computer memory specifications generally go up along with other developments in the technology. For instance, whenever new generations of processor chips are brought to the market, there’s usually an equivalent increase in the size and style preferences of all laptop memory and hard drive room. This is because software program operated by means of these processor chips will inevitably rise in power to use the new technological innovation.

  63. One thing I would really like to say is the fact that before acquiring more computer memory, look into the machine within which it can be installed. If your machine is actually running Windows XP, for instance, a memory threshold is 3.25GB. Using above this would simply constitute a new waste. Be sure that one’s motherboard can handle this upgrade volume, as well. Thanks for your blog post.

  64. I think other web-site proprietors should take this site as an model, very clean and excellent user genial style and design, as well as the content. You are an expert in this topic!

  65. Wow, amazing blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you make blogging look easy. The overall look of your web site is excellent, let alone the content!. Thanks For Your article about sex.

  66. Thanks for these guidelines. One thing I should also believe is that credit cards presenting a 0% interest rate often attract consumers along with zero monthly interest, instant approval and easy online balance transfers, nevertheless beware of the real factor that will void that 0% easy neighborhood annual percentage rate and to throw you out into the bad house in no time.

  67. One thing is that often one of the most popular incentives for applying your credit cards is a cash-back or rebate present. Generally, you’ll receive 1-5% back upon various expenses. Depending on the cards, you may get 1% returning on most buying, and 5% again on expenses made on convenience stores, gasoline stations, grocery stores along with ‘member merchants’.

  68. Thanks for your ideas. One thing we have noticed is the fact banks plus financial institutions know the spending behavior of consumers as well as understand that plenty of people max out their cards around the vacations. They correctly take advantage of this particular fact and start flooding a person’s inbox in addition to snail-mail box along with hundreds of no-interest APR card offers just after the holiday season closes. Knowing that when you are like 98% of all American public, you’ll rush at the possible opportunity to consolidate financial debt and switch balances to 0 APR credit cards.

  69. You made some decent points there. I checked on the net to learn more about the issue and found most individuals will go along with your views on this site.

  70. Somebody necessarily assist to make severely posts
    I might state. That is the very first time I frequented your web page
    and to this point? I amazed with the research you made to create this particular put up incredible.
    Magnificent task!
