MiSight® 1 day contact lenses are the first FDA-approved* soft contact lenses to slow the progression of myopia in children age 8-12 at the initiation of treatment.1**
See Myopia Management through a new lens
MiSight® 1 day contact lenses were clinically validated in a multi-year comprehensive study that enrolled children age 8-12 years old.1
59%: Average reduction in SERE with MiSight® 1 day lenses1**
52%: Average reduction in axial lengthening with MiSight® 1 day lenses1**
How MiSight® 1 day contact lenses work
The ActivControlTM Technology in MiSight® 1 day uses vision correction zones and treatment zones within the lenses to slow the axial elongation of the eyeball.1-3
By including both types of zones in the lens, it simultaneously corrects the child’s vision, while creating myopic defocus in all gazes.1
MiSight® 1 day contact lenses are patient and parent-approved
Incorporating this technology into a 1-day disposable lens was based on the safety profile of lenses that are discarded after one day of use, as well as children’s ease of use and parental peace of mind. For children and parents, a multi-center study found1:
90% of children continued to express a strong preference for MiSight® 1 day contact lenses over their glasses at the 5 year visit4†
90% of children as young as 8 years old are able to insert and remove their lenses on their own5‡
Over 90% of parents whose children were wearing MiSight® 1 day or Proclear® 1 day during a three-year study, rated their children ‘happy’ with the overall experience of wearing contact lenses4§
Additional benefits of contact lenses for children
Beyond standard vision correction, myopia management with a soft contact lens provides children with additional lifestyle benefits.
- Offering a comfortable wearing experience6
- Avoiding the worry of losing or breaking glasses
- Accommodating a more active lifestyle6
- Providing children who wear contact lenses a significantly better quality of life than kids wearing glasses, especially regarding athletics and appearance7
*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 -4.00 diopters (spherical equivalent) with ≤ 0.75 diopters of astigmatism. The lens is to be discarded after each removal.
