Contact Lens Care
Contact Lenses are used to protect the eyes from potential harm, however, it needs proper care and handlings to avoid discomfort and eye infections, especially when the lens is bought from unauthorised sources. This proves the importance of guidance from professionals concerning contact lenses.

To remind again, every purchase of contact lenses needs professional consultation. Do not skip that part.
Myopia in Children
Myopia is a common eye condition for children nowadays and often overlooked due to the child and the parents’ low exposure on eye care issues. Similar to adults, children are prone to risk of eye diseases like retinal detachment, maculopathy, and binocular vision disorder such as strabismus and amblyopia.
These conditions lead them to wear glasses which will affect their self-development in terms of their movement coordination, learning abilities as well as emotional attachment during their growing years. Hence, parents play a major role in this issue specifically to provide support.
Children Myopia Control programme includes professional consultation and minimum a year of monitored tailored prescription. Recommendations from professionals may involve certain types of specialty optical lenses or contact lenses. This programme helps in monitoring children’s eye development, aiming to slow down the progression of myopia and prevent children from becoming Myopic at an early age.
MOG Eyewear is one of the many Malaysia’s optical retailers that implement this programme. They are able to assess and evaluate your children’s eye health with the help of a paediatric optometrist through a set of specialty tests.
