MiSight® 1 day with ActiveControl® Technology not only correct short-sightedness—they’re also the first soft contact lenses proven to significantly reduce the progression of myopia in children by 59% on average.
How does MiSight® 1 day work?
Dual focus contact lenses, such as MiSight® 1 day are worn during the day to correct vision and slow down the progression of short-sightedness in children. MiSight® 1 day is just like any soft daily disposable contact lens but with a special optical design, proven over a 3 year clinical trial, to slow down the speed at which short-sightedness progresses.
Contact lenses designed for children
Daily disposable lenses are easier to use and look after, making it easier for more children to be fitted with contact lenses. Children as young as 8 can successfully wear contact lenses and have reported that;
- They felt more competent when taking part in sport & other physical activities.
- They feel better about their appearance
- They feel better about fitting in with their friends
As well as these social and lifestyle benefits, the paramount factor is a proven reduction of 59% on the rate of myopia progression in MiSight® 1 Day wearers.
Treating myopic children as early as possible has the most impact on slowing myopia progression, however, older children will experience a reduction in the rate of change so it is never too late.
