Whereas there are numerous reports on optical methods of controlling myopia progression using progressive addition spectacle, monovision spectacle or orthokeratology, we present the first Case Report of arrested fast progressing myopia after alternating monovision treatment of contact lens wear. The average rate of myopia progression was slowed to about 0.25 D a year from more than 1.0 D a year. There was no detectable loss in contrast sensitivity and stereo-acuity. No visual symptom or discomfort has been reported. The case proposes the feasibility of controlling myopia progression optically using a monovision contact lens approach. Further clinical case studies are thus indicated.
