New Reshaping Contact Lenses Combat Childhood Myopia

The innovative lenses aim to help the 30% of the U.S. population affected by nearsightedness.

A recent Mobile Health News article discussed a new FDA-approved reshaping contact lens developed to correct childhood myopia. Myopia, more commonly known as nearsightedness, tends to run in families, and is responsible for making about 30% of the United States population see faraway objects as blurry.

To combat the condition, Johnson & Johnson developed Abiliti Overnight Therapeutic Lenses, which use fitting software to define the eye’s corneal topography and refraction error. This information helps clinicians accurately measure the corneal shape, so that the lens can help reshape the wearer’s cornea when used overnight.
