KIDS SHOULD GROW STRONGER.
Their nearsightedness shouldn’t.
Slowing the Progression of Nearsightedness Starts Here
MiSight®1 day contact lenses are the first and ONLY soft contact lenses that are FDA approved* to slow the progression of myopia in children 8-12 years of age at initiation of treatment¹.
What is Myopia?
Myopia = Nearsightedness
Whether or not your child complains of not being able to see objects at a distance—such as the board at the front of their classroom— they might have a condition called myopia. It’s more commonly known, though, as nearsightedness.
The eyes of a child with myopia become longer over time, which causes distant objects to appear blurry. And, if it’s not addressed, myopia often worsens as your child gets older.

- The First and Only. MiSight® 1 day is the first and only FDA-approved* soft contact lens to slow the progression of myopia in children aged 8 -12 at the initiation of treatment1†.
- Clinically Proven and Safe. Over a 3-year period, slowed myopia progression 59% on average, reduced eye lengthening by 52% on average1†§, and 41% of eyes had no progression1†¶. Over a 6-year period, children wearing MiSight 1 day progressed less than 1.00D on average2§.
- Parent-Approved. 90% of parents whose children wore MiSight® 1 day contact lenses reported that their children were happy wearing MiSight® 1 day lenses3|.
- Child Friendly. After using MiSight® 1 day contact lenses for three years, 90% of children still strongly preferred them over their glasses4.
MiSight® 1 day as part of a Myopia Management Program
Managing your child’s myopia—both today and in the future—requires more than just vision correction. That’s why we’re taking steps to establish a new standard of care for treating myopia in children, including the use of MiSight® 1 day contact lenses.
Helping your child manage their nearsightedness starts with a comprehensive eye exam. Your Eye Care Professional will be able to determine the amount of vision correction your child needs now, and tell you if they’re a good candidate for wearing MiSight® 1 day contact lenses to help slow future myopia progression. They’ll also factor in lifestyle considerations as part of your child’s myopia management plan. For many nearsighted kids, limiting the daily amount of near work and increasing their time spent outdoors can help slow their rate of progression.
To start your child’s journey to a clearly better future, ask your doctor about MiSight® 1 day.
MiSight® 1 day contact lenses are FDA-approved* to slow the progression of myopia in children 8 to 12 years of age at initiation of treatment1†. That means that they’ve been comprehensively tested over an extended period and have met all of the safety criteria required by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The testing of MiSight® 1 day lenses consisted of a three-year clinical study in children 8-12 years old at the time they began treatment for myopia. Half of these children wore MiSight® 1 day contact lenses and the other half wore traditional 1 day soft contact lenses. This way, we could see if MiSight® 1 day really made a difference. And they did. The progression of myopia slowed in 41% of children who wore MiSight® 1 day contact lenses as compared to those who didn’t1†.
