Myopia, as the most common source of distance vision impairment in the world, is a serious global public health and socioeconomic crisis. Although more than half of the world population will be myopic by 2050, none of the myopia control strategies has been demonstrated to completely stop the development or progression of myopia. This is due to the fact that myopia is progressing faster than its management options. It should also be emphasized that none of the current myopia control strategies is practically in use for some reason except for research purposes. It is of critical importance to realize that without any effectual controls or therapeutic interventions, myopia crisis enlarges further.
