MiSight® 1 day: first and only soft contact lens FDA-approved* to slow the progression of myopia in children, aged 8-12 at the initiation of treatment

MiSight 2 day: first and only soft contact lens FDA-approved to slow the progression of myopia in children, 8-12, at the initiation of treatment. Children can insert the soft, daily wear, single use contact lenses in their eyes in the morning, wear them for at least 10 hours during the day, then dispose of them in the evening. The FDA-approved lens is part of a comprehensive myopia management approach offered by CooperVision and participating practitioners (like Aspire Vision Care in Round Rock Texas!) How It Works: MiSight 1 day is an award-winning dual-focus soft contact lens that uses ActivControl Technology to slow the elongation of the eyeball. The ActivControl Technology in MiSight 1 day utilizes an optic zone concentric ring design with alternating vision correction and treatment zones. Two Zones are vision correction zones with the label power of the contact lens, and the alternating zones are treatment zones with 2 diopters of defocus to slow the progression of myopia. This design allows the child to see clearly while benefiting from the treatment effect. Indications for Use: MiSight 1 day (omafilcon A) soft (hydrophilic) contact lenses for daily wear are indicated for the correction of myopic ametropia and for slowing the progression of myopia in children with non-diseased eyes, who at the initiation of treatment are 8-12 years of age and have a refraction of -0.75 to -0.4 diopters (spherical equivalent) with less than or equal to 0.75 diopters of astigmatism. The lens is to be discarded after each removal.

Clinically Proven - 5 years of data: CooperVision undertook a rigorous, multi-year, multi-country study to track how the MiSight 1 day contact lens affected myopia progression in children aged 8-12 at the initiation of treatment. After 3 years, teh study concluded the lens effectively slowed myopia progression by 59% and slowed the rate at which the eye lengthens by 52% compared to children in the control group wearing a single-vision 1-day lens. Results presented after the 5-year mark continued to demonstrate safety and efficacy. Ease of Fitting, Wear and Care: Incorporating this technology into a 1-day disposable lens was based on the safety profile of lenses that are discarded after 1 day of use, as well as children’s ease of use and parental peace of mind. For children and parents, a multi-center study found: 90% of children in the study preferred wearing MiSight 1 day lenses over wearing eyeglasses. 90% of children could apply and remove the MiSight 1 day lenses on their own. 90% of parents reported their children were happy with their experience wearing contact lenses. They noted the comfort, vision, ease of use, and freedom from eyeglasses top benefits. Program Costs: the cost of the program varies by region but parents can expect costs to be similar to what they would pay for an orthodontics package.
