SUBSTANCE: series of lenses for correcting the peripheral defocusing of an eye comprises several soft contact lenses. Each of the soft contact lenses of the series has a central optical force general for all lenses within the series. Each of the soft contact lenses of the series has the same optical power differential specified in a number of various optical power differentials for the lenses within the series. A method for correcting the peripheral defocusing of an eye involves selecting a first soft contact lens in the above series and putting it in the eye; assessing a vision quality to show the presence of hypercorrection or undercorrection in the peripheral retina; replacing the first lens for an alternative lens from the series of soft contact lenses having a higher optical power differential, if the undercorrection has been stated after putting the first lens in, or a lower optical power differential, if the hypercorrection has been stated after putting the first lens in.

EFFECT: lower risk of the hyper- or undercorrection of the defocusing in the peripheral retina of a specific eye, provided delay of myopia progression.
