The Risks and Benefits of Myopia Control
Bullimore, M. A., Ritchey, E. R., et al. (2021) - The primary justification for slowing myopia progression is to reduce the risk of vision loss through sight-threatening ocular pathologic features in later life. The article analyzes whether the potential benefits of slowing myopia progression by 1 diopter (D) justify the potential risks associated with treatments.
Evaluation of children in NL fitted with custom made Ortho-k contact lens BCLA 2021
Teuben K, Beerten R, Steenbekkers G. (2021) - A retrospective chart review was conducted to evaluate myopia progression in children fitted with an OK lens; the reason for fitting the lens was to correct myopia.
Efficacy of software-based fitting in Orthokeratology Analysis of 2 years data of 1000 eyes
Beerten R. (2020) - Purpose of this study was to analyse 1 the overall success of digital Ortho-k fitting, 2 How many lens exchanges were needed to reach this success.

Evaluation of children in the Netherlands fitted with a dual focas 1 day contact lens
Steenbekkers G. (2020) - While studies on dual focus 1 day lenses for myopia control have demonstrated their efficacy and clinical performance on children in controlled clinical trials, performance and wearer acceptance in a real-world practice environment is also an important consideration. This work was to evaluate the progression of myopia in a small cohort of children fitted with a dual focus 1 day contact lens.
