We understand that more children in urban areas are developing myopia. While glasses and soft contact lenses can correct the condition, until now, they have been unable to slow its rate of progression. Bifocal and PAL spectacles have been used to try and slow the rate of progression of myopia. Results have been variable and mixed perhaps due to non compliance in terms of ‘looking round’ the near zones of the lenses⁴.
The first soft contact lens proven to slow myopia progression in children
A daily disposable lens, such as MiSight™, is ideal for even young children. Not having to clean the lenses and with lost or damaged lenses easily replaced daily disposable lenses are the ideal option for even young children. A daily disposable lens, rather than a lens replaced every two or 4 weeks, can also reduce the occurrence of eye infections and symptoms related to ocular allergies⁷.
It's Myopia Management System is a holistic approach to minimizing the progression of myopia by combining MiSight contact lenses with ActivControl™ Technology and strategies for better eye health.
MiSight™ and ActivControl™ Technology
MiSight™ uses ActivControl™ Technology which results in clear distance, intermediate and near vision while the peripheral treatment zones of the lens creates myopic retinal defocus that has been shown to control the rate of progression of myopia⁵.
Children may be aware of a slight shadowing of images when first introduced to ActivControl™ Technology, most of those fitted report the shadowing decreases over the first week of wear⁸.
MiSight daily disposable contact lenses not only optically correct existing myopia, giving clear distance and near vision, but MiSight has also been proven to slow the progression of myopia in most children.
Utilizing MiSight™ with ActivControl™ Technology in combination with lifestyle changes can benefit children who are myopic by reducing the rate of progression of myopia in most cases. Children, especially those with myopic parent(s) can benefit from regular eye examinations and strategies to reduce the likelihood of the onset of myopia. Children with myopia will of course benefit from regular eye examinations and strategies to reduce the rate of progress of myopia. Myopic children can also benefit from ActivControl Technology™, used in MiSight™, which has been shown to reduce the rate of progression of myopia
