Soft Contact Lenses
First and Only Soft Contact Lens FDA-Approved to Slow the Progression of Myopia in Children 8-12 Years Old! CooperVision’s MiSight® 1-day is the first and only soft contact lens approved by the FDA to slow the progression of myopia in children 8-12 years old. Children can insert the soft, daily wear, single use contact lenses in their eyes in the morning, and wear them for at least 10 hours during the day, then dispose of them in the evening.
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® 1day 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 two 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.
Clinically proven – 5 years of data:
After 3 years, the study concluded the MiSight® 1day 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 five-year mark continued to demonstrate safety and efficacy.
