MiSight® 1 day: Letting the Science Speak for Itself

The prevalence of myopia is rising. And today is when we need to act to protect a child’s precious vision from getting worse as they grow. MiSight® 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 treatment.†* 

To summarize, by the end of the 3-year randomized controlled portion of the 7-year MiSight® 1 day clinical trial, there was a 59% reduction in the rate of myopia progression, on average. †1

*Indications for use: MiSight® 1 day (omafilcon A) soft (hydrophilic) contact lenses for daily wear are indicated for the correction of myopic ametropia and for slowing the progression of myopia in children with non-diseased eyes, who at the initiation of treatment are 8-12 years of age and have a refraction of -0.75 to -4.00 diopters (spherical equivalent) with ≤ 0.75 diopters of astigmatism. The lens is to be discarded after each removal.

† Compared to a single-vision 1 day lens over a 3-year period.

* Only FDA approved soft contact lens designed for myopia control in the U.S.
