MiSight contact lenses for myopia management
MiSight contact lenses are daily disposable soft contact lenses specifically designed for myopia management in children. Here is some information about MiSight lenses from the manufacturer:
- MiSight lenses are FDA-approved to slow down the progression of myopia in children aged 8 to 12 years at the initiation of treatment. They are the first and only soft contact lenses approved for myopia control in age-appropriate children
- These lenses are designed to correct vision while also providing a treatment effect to slow down the elongation of the eye, which is associated with myopia progression
- Clinical studies have shown that MiSight lenses can reduce myopia progression by an average of 59% over a 3-year period. Additionally, children wearing MiSight lenses progressed less than 1.00D on average over a 6-year period
- MiSight lenses are child-friendly and easy to use. After using MiSight lenses for three years, 90% of children were able to insert and remove the lenses on their own
- The lenses are daily disposable, which means they are worn during the day and replaced with a fresh pair each day. This eliminates the need for cleaning and maintenance and reduces the probability of eye infections.
- MiSight lenses are part of a comprehensive myopia management program that may include regular eye examinations, lifestyle modifications, and other interventions
It is important to consult with your optometrist to determine if MiSight lenses are suitable for your child and to receive proper guidance on their usage and care.
