Myopia is the main refractive error worldwide. It affects around the 35% of the people in Europe and the 70% of the students in some Asian countries. Epidemiological data relate myopia with a range of eye diseases such as glaucoma, retinal detachment or maculopathy. The associated risks are related to the amount of refractive error. That Increases exponentially when refraction is higher than -5.00 diopters. This highlights the potential benefits of interventions that may limit or prevent the progression of myopia in children.

accion optica

Understanding about mechanisms that guide the eye towards emmetropia is increasingly advanced, partly due to animal studies. Primate research has shown that the visual cues of the fovea are not essential for the process of eye growth and that this is dependent on the image. Specifically, the periphery, in isolation, can mediate the normal development of refraction and when there is a conflict between the visual cues of the fovea and the periphery, peripheral dominate the central refractive development. Recent clinical studies with orthokeratology and multifocal contact lenses had been shown to slow down eye growth and therefore act as a stop signal on increasing myopia. In fact, orthokeratology lenses like Amiopik modify peripheral retinal image, especially moving it forward.

Amiopik contact lens, is the result of research efforts that have led to design, patent and validate the optics of the contact lens power gradient (Amiopik), in hydrophilic and Gas Permeable material. Amiopik is a unique and innovative design, with a continuous progressive optical zone, designed to obtain a gradual change of peripheral refraction.

The use of a contact lens, as a therapeutic optical element, has been chosen due to its stability and visual alignment with the visual axis during movements of the eyes. The lens has shown after 2 years of longitudinal study to slowdowns refractive error by 43% compared to a group of children of single vision glasses wearers. Besides the lens Amiopik showed similar efficacy in controlling myopia compared to an orthokeratology a control group. Being the latter considered to date the most effective optical system to control of myopia in children.
