ActivControl® Technology for slowing myopia progression in age-appropriate children
Special contact lens technology for children that corrects their vision while slowing myopia progression in children (aged 8-12 at the initiation of treatment) by 59%, on average1.
For illustrative purposes only
Did you know? 8 in 10 eye care professionals agree that they worry about their pediatric patients having significant eye health issues, such as retinal detachment or glaucoma, later in their lives due to the progression of their myopia2. And that risk multiplies as a child’s prescriptions get stronger3.
Thanks to ActivControl® Technology, children (aged 8-12 at the initiation of treatment) can now enjoy freedom from glasses when wearing their contact lenses while potentially slowing down the progression of their myopia1*.
Specifically designed to reduce the progression of myopia (nearsightedness)1; helping to control the axial length and refractive error increases of the eye in age-appropriate children which can help to reduce the risk of myopia-related vision complications later in life4.
Gives age-appropriate children freedom from glasses when wearing their contact lenses1*.
Easy for age-appropriate children to use1. Convenient daily disposable contact lenses—no need to clean or store them.
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.
