MiSight Daily Dispoable Contact Lenses for Myopia Control
At Elliott Optician’s, we fit MiSight 1 day daily disposable lenses which are specifically designed to control myopia.
The innovative optical design of MiSight lenses makes them as easy to ﬁt and use as regular single-vision contact lens offering a simple, convenient myopia management therapy compared with alternative treatment options.
MiSight help to control both axial length increase and myopia progression while fully correcting refractive error.
“Myopia’s growth has been dizzying, and now affects the vast majority of young adults in some countries, especially in East Asia,” said Arthur Back, Chief Technology Officer for CooperVision and a leading voice on myopia management.
“Not only does it create blurred vision, but also increases the likelihood of conditions later in life such as glaucoma, cataract, retinal detachment and myopic maculopathy if not addressed.”
Three-year clinical study findings indicated that the use of MiSight 1 day was effective in slowing myopia progression by:
59% as measured by mean cycloplegic spherical equivalent3*.
52% as measured by mean axial elongation of the eye when compared to the children in the control group wearing a standard single-vision, one-day lens contact lens.
Ensuring that children wear and are happy with the lens is of critical importance to the therapy’s effectiveness. The three-year results indicated that MiSight 1 day was well accepted by children, and did not affect their daily activities such as school work, reading, playing outside, and computer use when compared to the control group.
Other results indicated:
Children in both the test and control groups had a higher satisfaction with contact lenses over spectacles.
Parents of study participants also had a very positive response, noting their children could mostly manage their lens wear independently.
Prior to dispensing contact lenses, less than half of the parents were extremely at ease with their child wearing contact lenses, but this increased significantly to 79% after just one month and remained high through the three-year mark.
After their children had worn MiSight 1 day contact lenses for three years, almost 9 out of 10 parents rated their children 'extremely happy' with the overall experience of wearing contact lenses.
