Paragon CRT

My son now 11.5 has been wearing Paragon CRT lenses for 2 years.  He had progressive myopia ( about -7.25 in both eyes with some astigmatism).  His vision seems to have stopped getting worse over the two years he has been wearing the lenses as the lenses have not required any adjustments.

I would like to know what age does myopia generally stop progressing?  I have him in CRT simply to slow the myopia progression which they seem to be doing, however, I don't believe it is a long term solution given his high prescription.

Thanks.

The best answer is we never know. It's just like trying to predict how tall someone will be. So there is no age at which myopia always stops progression.

You can use the search feature and archives and there is much to read about progressive myopia.

There is a new lens out there specifically for high myopia. You can find out information about the lens at www.isee.com
