Vision Therapy for Myopic child.

Has anyone tried Vision Therapy to reduce the progression of myopia in a child?  If yes,  are you convinced with the method and its outcomes.  

I have been recommended by my optometrist to try Vision Therapy for my son (-5D in both eyes at the age of 9).  The procedure is expensive and not covered by insurance.  

Thanks.

Many studies have shown that vision therapy doesn't work for myopia reduction.  It would be a total waste of your money and your child's time.

As Jodie said, don't waste your time.
